Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers my husband has had a stroke and our grandson has bilateral pneumonia. Both are admitted to the same hospital. William can move everything and talk, he is unable to walk right now. The stroke affected the area of his brain that controls balance. He also has an irregular heart rhythm that probably caused the stroke. Unsure right now. More tests tomorrow. Griffin is on iv fluids and antibiotics 💔

I‘ll tag a few people to get us started!

Repost from Stacy!

To My #Litsylove Letter Writers 🐌📝 💌📬💛!!!

Hi Snail Mailers who write me - each week I‘ve been sending on used stamps for a Fundraiser for a Charity called Hearing Dogs. If they reach a specific number of used stamps, they get a financial boost/donation. If anyone who writes to me wants to include your used stamps from received #Litsylove, that would be amazing!! I‘ll post when the fundraiser ends 🐶❤️💌📬

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks If anyone who is not in #LitsyLove and wants to participate you can send you stamps to me! My email is loverofbooks75@gmail I will get them there! Thank you! 5d

#LiteraryJeopardy

#LitsyLove peeps!!

Just for fun and a happy! No googling!!

The longest sentence in a book is over 800 words long (!!!) and can be found in which book? 🤔

If you go to the Facebook page you can hear the jeopardy them song that will be in my head all day!!

Roary47 I‘m pretty sure is a classic, but don‘t know which. Moby Dick? I assume there is a huge monologue in there. 😅 5d
BkClubCare My guesses 🤷🏻‍♀️ would be Ulysses or Ducks, Newburyport. 🦆 5d
julesG I think I read somewhere that it's 5d
See All 10 Comments
Karisa Not sure… My guess is it‘s in a Faulkner. Maybe as I Lay Dying? Seemed to be some loooong stretches without periods in that one. 😅 5d
Susanita This book has a sentence that goes on for a few pages… 5d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @julesG you are correct!! 🙌🏻👊🏻 5d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @julesG can you email your address for a happy? Loverofbooks75@gmail ❤️ 5d

Had to leave work this morning and go to the doctor. Most of you know that I talk on the phone all day at work and I lost my voice a couple of days ago. Turns out I have strep and bilateral ear infections 😫I‘m going to try to start this one. I‘m having chills so I may not make it very far. Have you read it or any of this author‘s books! I loved The Housemaid and Do Not Disturb 🖤

Read4life I‘m so sorry you‘re sick. I hope you feel better soon & at least can get some reading time. I haven‘t read anything by this author but I‘ve stacked it. 🤓💙 6d
tonymp I read The Housemaid and I loved it. I read it from start to finish in one night, it was a huge page turner. I plan to read this next one soon. I hope you feel better soon! Strep sucks. I got it a lot when I was a kid. 6d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @cinda.marie I‘ll send it to you when I finish it… thank you 😊 6d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @tonymp I agree! Thank you! Not very often an adults get strep 🤷🏻‍♀️ 6d
tonymp @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks You'd be surprised about adults getting strep! I got it quite often from childhood well into my mid thirties, although the frequency of it tapered off when I started college. I think I got it a total of 5 times throughout my twenties. Some people don't like being over 40. I really don't mind! I had one bad year, age 8. I got it four times! 6d
curiouserandcurioser @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks hope you feel better soon, sweet friend❤ love you💕💕 6d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @tonymp omg!! That‘s a lot! I‘m 47 and don‘t like it one bit! It‘s better than the alternative though! I talk on the phone for 12 hours and the doctors were telling me today that I need to see a doctor and rest my voice 😂😂 they couldn‘t understand anything I was saying! 6d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @curiouserandcurioser thank you Penny! Love you too! ❤️ 6d
ShelleyBooksie Hope you feel better soon!! ♡ 6d
dragondrool Feel better! I lost my voice for three days when I was in the middle of student teaching 31 sixth graders. It was just from strain. Katie loved it, because any time I needed everyone's attention, I would signal her and she'd holler for me. 6d
tonymp @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I'm also 47! Strep free for quite a long time, since my thirties. Honestly, and I'm not a scientist (actually, I'm a Spanish teacher, not good at science), I think it just has to do with random crap. I've always had to be a talker, and I mean a public speaker (you know, language teaching) so the more you open your mouth, the more your mouth is open. The bacteria just see you with your mouth open and fly in there. 6d

Congratulations Charity @ImperfectCJ 🎊🎉🎈🎊🎈you are the winner of our random #LitsyLove giveaway!!

I‘ll tag you into the choices!

ImperfectCJ Wow! What a surprise! I'll hang out a bit and make sure I see all the choices, but I'm leaning towards the "blind date" no. 2. I already read The Maidens and I'm not really interested in Crawdads. 3w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @ImperfectCJ ok! Just let me know! 3w

“Your schooling is your voice. That day, I tell myself that even if I am not getting anything in this life, I will go to school. I will finish my primary and secondary and university schooling and become teacher because I don‘t just want to be having any kind voice… I want a louding voice.”‘ 💔🥲
