This dinner was too good to read during(although I did have my Kindle with me as always)...but I still had to share it with you! It‘s my favorite meal at my favorite restaurant. Fresh salad & delicious sangria, flaming chorizo sausage, seasoned rice, and thick filet mignon on a hot stone. You cook it bite by bite right at the table, it‘s amazing! Never a cold bite, all cooked to your liking. Restaurant Valença in Elizabeth NJ—highly recommend!❤️?

DGRachel That looks amazing! I love sangria, but I'd be terrified of burning myself on that hot stone. 1w

The Adventures Of The Librarian: Quest For The Spear | Christopher Tracy, David Titcher
post image

This movie would probably be a hit with a lot of Littens. 😊 He lands a highly coveted job as a librarian at a really awesome library, and is in charge of guarding the world‘s greatest treasures (think the Ark of the Covenant and the real Mona Lisa), and goes on an epic adventure to protect these treasures. The Librarian is the hero!

There‘s a book adaptation of it too.

Here‘s a side-by-side comparison of my original first gen Kindle Oasis and the new 3rd gen Oasis. You can see the difference in screen size and screen warmth. (Plus a sleepy #Coale because cats make any picture more fun!😸)

BookBabe @SassyBookworm I love the Oasis! The weight is balanced nicely in the hand, since the battery is all on once side. Much more ergonomic experience. Love the physical page turn buttons. I‘ve never owned a Paperwhite but I did have the Voyage briefly and returned it. The Oasis accomplished what the Voyage didn‘t. 😊 2w
SassyBookworm @BookBabe thank you! I will have to check out the Oasis! ☺️ 2w
BookBabe @SassyBookworm Forgot to mention, I adore the warm light setting! It‘s a big help at night, and it makes the Kindle feel more like a book. 😊👍🏻 2w

Yes!!! My new 3rd Gen Kindle Oasis has arrived! I love it, it‘s awesome. Bigger screen, waterproof, and best of all it has a warm light setting! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Just in time for a fabulous #DinnerAndABook with some yummy middle eastern food—chicken kebab with yellow seasoned basmati rice, tabboule, baba gannoush, grilled pita, and salad with feta and grape leaves. And wine, of course. 😋 #Kindle #Oasis

#LunchAndABook! It‘s a beautiful day, so I‘m sitting in the garden at my favorite cafe in the dappled sunlight, listening to jazz while I read, sipping a ginger turmeric iced tea and nibbling on a yummy ham & cheese sandwich with arugula and red pepper aioli. 😋 Cold brew iced coffee and shortbread for dessert.

Any Josh Turner fans here? I had awesome 2nd row seats at his show over the weekend! 😃 I snapped this photo just as he tossed his guitar pick into the audience.

Tried to buy his book from the merch stand after the show but it was sold out, so I‘m going to order it from his website. I‘m sure it‘s geared more towards men, judging from the title😛...but I still want to read it anyway.
Here‘s my favorite song of his:

It‘s time for February‘s #24B4Monday #Readthon, with a twist this month: to read books that fit the Black History Month theme. The Readathon runs from Friday 22nd February & end of Sunday 24th February. The challenge is to try to read 24 hrs over the three days, but more importantly have fun with your reading. As usual the wonderful @TheReadingMermaid & @Andrew65 will be hosting & encouraging!

Forgot to post this during yesterday‘s snow storm. ❄️ Very uncharacteristic of me to venture out in bad weather, but something about the way the snow was falling excited me and I wanted to see how it looked covering the train tracks. Very glad I took a stroll to see it! It was so beautiful and peaceful. ❤️ #LitsyWalkers #audiowalk

#BookNDinner! #Thai edition! I tried a new (to me) Thai place tonight. Exquisite cuisine! Lovely ambiance too. I had a Tom Kha coconut milk soup followed by pan-seared bass in ginger sauce with veggies. Paired with a Thai iced tea with a twist—it was spiked with coconut rum. Soooo yummy! 😋 Happy reads & happy eats!

#BookNBrunch! #ValentinesDay Edition! Tried to go to a trendy boutique brunch spot, and that was a nope...they were slammed, understaffed, and there was a line. So, back to the local 50‘s diner it is! At least the food and service are always consistently good here.

Since it‘s a special occasion, I‘m going carb-indulgent today. Ham/spinach/cheese omelet, crispy hash brown patties, and raisin toast, with coffee.😋 Happy reads & happy eats!

Rachel_nyc Is this book group open to new members? I‘ve been looking for a book club in nyc... 7mo
BookBabe @Rachel_nyc Yes, absolutely! We‘d love to have you join us. (There‘s an age limit though 🙈) Here‘s the link: Check out 20/30 something book club http://meetu.ps/c/dwbY/3fJB0/a (edited) 7mo
Rachel_nyc @BookBabe bummer, I‘m a few years too late! 👵🏼 7mo
BookBabe @Rachel_nyc Aww, rats! That is a bummer. We inherited the group, so it wasn‘t our idea, lol. Eventually we‘ll age out of our group and have to hand it down to someone else 😂 7mo
Rachel_nyc @BookBabe 😂No worries. I hadn‘t thought of checking meetup so I will check it out to see if there are other book clubs that may work for me. 7mo

#LitsyWalkers - Got a decent #audiowalk in today, as it was mild (around 50F) and sunny. Windy though. I‘m glad this huge branch didn‘t land on me! It wasn‘t there yesterday. 😳 I walked to Dunkin for a coffee again, admired the train tracks, and headed back home for a healthy meal with a friend. All in all a successful day! 🙌🏻

Kaye Good job 🌟 7mo
BookBabe Thanks @kaye ! ❤️ 7mo
