I am so spoiled by my Litsy friends!! Thank you so much @Lovesbooks87 - these books will definitely be a great addition to my classroom library! And I'm really looking forward to reading Red, White, & Royal Blue! The coffee mug is absolutely perfect- I love it!

Lovesbooks87 So glad that it made it to you. I thought your students may enjoy the books I sent around this time of the year. When I saw the mug I knew I had to send it to you! Enjoy! 24h
TheRomantiCate The Babysitter‘s Coven and Now Entering Addamsville are definitely on my wish list! 🤩🤩 22h

Thanks @RestlessFickleBookHoarder for the chance to win in your #giveawaykerfuffle! Congratulations on the milestone! 🎉 I love the word lollygag, because I think it is such a great description for aimless meandering. 😂

Sace And I always associate it with parental annoyance (I can neither confirm nor deny I was a lollygagging child.) 5d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I use this word so much!! 🤣🤣 5d
CoffeeNBooks @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks It's such a great word!! 😂 5d

MicheleinPhilly I use this word all the time, under my breath, when I am stuck behind slow walkers. 5d
kellyann28 Hahaha I use this word with my 4 year old to get her to hurry up. I say "Quit lollygagging!" Makes it sound a little less demanding ? 5d

Quentins isn't just an ordinary restaurant, but one that holds a special meaning to so many people, for various reasons. And the story of how Quentins came about, is just as important.
With this, I have finally completed #LitsyAtoZ for this year!

I just finished listening to this audiobook- I've been listening while I walk on the treadmill. I think Amy Poehler is very funny, and also very real, not pretentious, so this was a fun book to listen to. Now I need to start watching Parks & Rec again! #audiowalking

I just finished reading this week's section, but I'm not sure how I feel about this book yet. I like the writing style, but I'm having a hard time getting into the story. #13MoonsBuddyRead @megnews @sblbooks

Lcsmcat It‘s a very contemplative novel. (Which I happen to like, but I know isn‘t everyone‘s thing.) 1mo
megnews @CoffeeNBooks I agree with @Lcsmcat The plot doesn‘t really move the story forward at a steady pace. I like these kind of books too but at first I thought it was going to be slow and then I started flying through. I planned to read today but got sidetracked with pictures books for #BBRC. Hope to start the second section tomorrow. 1mo
