I copied this and made a picture to share after @GypsyKat said ok.

never knowing that I would have to call 911 for my sister in law, an hour or so later. She is doing ok.

Thank you for posting and I am sending my picture to get printed and I am writing notes to my friends & family on the back. I am putting a magnet on it so they have that number and mine. I do not want them to ever feel alone, They are to precious i me.

Laura317 @Austen_Nerd That is a wonderful idea. This has been a rough time for many. I‘m grateful that your sister-in-law is ok. 2y

I am a tad bit behind, Today, I was able to open my #JaneAustenSwap from @Mitch They we‘re just what I needed this crazy backwards week. I love Jane Austen‘s world. I live in the South and I grew up with those sweet Southern manners. The items that @Mitch choose for me were perfect. I wish I could say I had a favorite they all are. I apologize again for being late. I can not wait to see what I will do with my stamps. Thank you!!!

Mitch So glad! Hope it brought a little cheer to your week ❤️ 2y

2. I was an odd ball out in my family, and due to health issues I read to overcome the pain. Reading was not done by anyone else in my family. I realized early in life I could escape inside the cover of a book. I am thankful for the school librarians who foster that love of books, helping me find books to read for pleasure or escape.

I felt due to my personal life that I could walk in the shoes of the characters of the book. The story telling was a walk into life allowing us to see that no matter where we are from we share so much as humans and no matter where we live we are alike and share the same events in our life.
I will be placing this in the mail this week, @CSeydel sorry, it is so late. @collegecatlady it was a great read and it made me relive and rethink life

Kaye Well, I guess if you make a trip once in awhile and stock up with a huge pile, then can maybe do online renewals, that might work. We are allowed 3 weeks here then 5 renewals if needed. Do you have a limit to the number you can check out ? 2y
Austen_Nerd @Kaye I am not sure, I never go that direction. I would love to use the library, I will have to try to go by there Saturday and see. My main problem is that I work in the opposite direction so it is hard with family and work to get there when they are open. Small towns with crazy hours. lol 2y

I love to play BINGO!! Here is my bingo page for the #GARbingo. Thank you @4thhouseontheleft for hosting this!!! I hate that I haven‘t read these before!!

4thhouseontheleft You added 50 Shades!! I was waiting for someone to! 😃😃 2y
Austen_Nerd @4thhouseontheleft I have never read them. Ok, I started one, and rolled my eyes, thinking really, this is dumb. As a book seller I remember ladies coming in and ordering as a print on demand. They would pick it up like it was gold. I think my expectations was to high for it at that time. It is not something I would normally read. So, here I go again. 2y
4thhouseontheleft @Austen_Nerd I also haven‘t read them, and thought they were crap books. But at the same time, I remember seeing people read them who hadn‘t picked up a book in years. There‘s something to be said for that. (edited) 2y
cherinium I will confess to reading them. Were they good? No. Did it give me something to talk about with my coworkers and friends who were reading them? Absolutely. @4thhouseontheleft has a point. If it gets people to read, that's a win. 2y
Austen_Nerd @cherinium @4thhouseontheleft I agree my friends who think they are awesome. Would never pick up a book before they read them. I am all for reading and encouraging people to read. That is the win!! Me reading them now, I am not expecting anything from them but to talk with my friends who had read them. Sometimes our view or expectations sets a book up to be a bail or a book we wish to finish. I hope this time to finish. 2y

I remember seeing the movie at the on a date!! That makes me feel old!! I read The Princess Bride for a reading challenge “read a book that was a movie”. I was surprised that much has not changed from the book to the movie. I enjoyed reliving the story of Westley and Buttercup.

CrowCAH Me, too; it‘s great to see that the movie is true to the book!!! 2y

I love this series! Why? you might ask. They are always the same thing: Ranger -Morelli love triangle, Cars blowing up or being destroyed, and Lula and Grandma Mazur. I know when I read this series my mind can take a break, and I can just read and relax. I love to read this series between my serious or more mind blowing reads.

CarolynM I agree, you know what to expect and she delivers every time. I feel like some of them succeed more than others, but it may have more to do with my mood when I read them than the actual books. 2y
Austen_Nerd @CarolynM I agree😊 2y
Bookzombie @CarolynM @Austen_Nerd I agree. I really enjoy this series. I‘ve only read through book 14 though. However, I didn‘t like The In-Between-The-Numbers series as much. 2y

Austen in Austin, Volume 1 is four Texas set novellas based on Jane Austen‘s novels. I enjoyed them all. They are a quick and easy read. It was fun to read about the old west through the eyes of Jane Austen‘s charterers. I thought that the authors did a great job of taking the different stories and setting them in the old west.

the-flashley @CSeydel @Austen_Nerd I‘m kind of feeling the same way! I‘m starting to feel a little daunted by my book choice because I‘m only 50 pgs in and I‘ve been reading for like 2 days (granted that was with significant distraction and background noise). I‘m just going to have to hide myself away and finish it! 2y
CSeydel Wait I thought Beauty is your LMPBC book?? Which one did you end up choosing? 2y
Chrissyreadit @Austen_Nerd I loved that version of Beauty! @the-flashley I also loved Alias Grace- are you enjoying it? 2y
the-flashley @Chrissyreadit I definitely am! I get a little lost in the language occasionally, but the characters are so interesting that they suck me right it! 2y
Austen_Nerd @CSeydel Sorry, I am reading Beauty, I meant to say as soon as I finish Beauty I will read the book mailed to me!! so, I will not get behind 2y
