@BayouGirl85 thank you for the book & recipes! I love Jane Austen & Austen adjacent books, so this is lovely. I just walked out to the garden and saw a whole bunch of strawberry blossoms, maybe later I‘ll have fresh strawberries for the galette. 😊🍓

This one took me a bit to finish - I feel it was a slow build. But by the end of the book I was rooting hard for these three formidable women & the pages were flying because I had to know what happened to these women. Then I read the author‘s note and was completely floored. I meant to finish this in Jan for #newyearwhodis, but better late than never! Thanks for putting this on my radar @sprainedbrain - it‘s not something I normally would pick up!

The kids are back today so they got to open their #blitsy packages. Corrine loved all her goodies. She‘s excited the most for the tagged book (another one I may have to swipe.) We‘ve been doing a lot of puzzles recently & this one looks fun. She‘s going to have to hide the bunny because the puppy thought it was for him - she snatched it back from him pretty quick. Thanks @Chelleo for hosting - the kids had a lot of fun (and so did I!)

The kids are back, so they got to open their #blitsy packages. Caden thought everything was awesome & he‘s super excited about the tagged book. He also got his dad a Black Panther water bottle a couple years ago and was excited to have his own. We all agree the gummy bears are tasty (they rival the albanese ones.) (I plan on swiping the tagged book when he‘s not here 🤓)

Chelleo Aww!!! Love it! I want to read the tagged book too! We also love the Albanese gummies! That candy came from a local black owned candy shop and the swaps give me a reason to visit them. So glad he liked everything! 2mo

@DebinHawaii you are awesome! I am ridiculously excited about the books, though the tagged book looks like it‘s just going to increase my TBR exponentially. I‘m tempted to frame & hang all the notecards on my library wall (though I fear there won‘t be room. I‘ve had tea from this brand before & it‘s delicious - tea strainers are always welcome. I told my hubby I must be an adult because I got excited about stamps. Love the bookmarks & washi tape.

I felt this to be more approachable, but don‘t take that to mean simple. It was complex & fantastic, Jemisin is a master of her craft. I am eagerly awaiting the next book. There will be a next one, right?

Littens! How would I find the title of an obscure book? My husband is looking for a book he read a while back. He says it was about a female Russian sleeper agent & gave the impression there was a network of sleepers. He read it as a mass market paperback sometime between 2007-2013. He said he thinks the cover was read with raised gold letters. Any help on where to look or what it might be would be appreciated! (And here‘s Gus cause he‘s cute.)

EllanaRose Don't suppose it was a shadowrun book? It sounds like a shadowrun book I read but I'd need to double check XD 4mo

tokorowilliamwallace This author came to a speaking/promotional event hosted by the Baltimore County public library system in either 2019 or 2020 close to the beginning of the outbreak of the pandemic, so I got to hear him talk about his book, life, and experiences; and purchased this book from the event. Champagne would probably make for a wonderful complement to this reading (or maybe find your husband some Sagamore rye whiskey to celebrate his provenance). 4mo

Thank you @monalyisha for all the fabulous goodies! My stepdaughter read the letter you sent as I opened up your gifts and then stole the picture of Moxie. I‘m going to trust you on the white chocolate because I feel the same about it. The soap smells delicious, but I haven‘t opened the body butter however I love juniper. And that bookmark is gorgeous! I‘m super excited about both of the books! Thank you! #bestof2021

Amandajoy @monalyisha yes! I‘m sure Moxie is now on her cork board next to Gus where they are best friends. (In reality it would be like that old cartoon where Bugs Bunny gets smooshed while being hugged & petted because the one guy doesn‘t know his own strength.) 4mo

monalyisha @Amandajoy Have I mentioned that my parents used to have a bulldog? His name was Sarge (most commonly referred to as “Meatball”). He was SO dumb, & SUCH a love. 💓😍🐶 He lived to be 13 & was the best dog we‘ve ever had. 4mo
Amandajoy @monalyisha I think you did, but I love that! I‘m sorry he‘s not with you anymore. We call Gus Fat Boy or Chunky. Gus is pretty smart but also very lovey. (edited) 4mo
monalyisha @AmandaJoy It‘s okay! He lived a long life (much of it while I was away at college). My parents now have a grand-dog — a 90 lb German Shephard named Maverick — who they babysit often. So, not *exactly* an English Bulldog but he still manages to be their favorite family member. 😅 4mo
monalyisha @AmandaJoy Actually, I think the pup‘s title has been usurped by human grandchildren, one of whom is Maverick‘s brother. His name is Jack. He‘s 8 months old & has a onesie that says “Goose” on it. How freakin‘ cute is that?! 4mo
