Gaaaahh!!! Me and Daisy loved this book. Linda Holmes captured all the feels. She even wrote about seeing mental health assistance in a way that makes sense for anyone. It's a fun book, but I really related to the characters. None of them were perfect, just perfectly ordinary. Love!

SharonAlger Oh my goodness! I have a half boxer named Daisy! Your girl is adorable 😍 2mo
Coleen_Nieto @SharonAlger thank you!! I love her so much! Her tongue is super long so its always hanging out of her mouth so she looks so goofy 😀 I look forward to seeing pictures of your Daisy! 2mo

Fabulous! I've seen some poor reviews of this book, but for me, it closed everything nicely. AND Denver was mentioned!!

Yesterday I culled my book collection. 11 boxes of books later!

I am donating them and I feel good that someone else will get to enjoy them.

I still probably have a a couple hundred books, that's the next project ÷ logging what's left.

Has anyone else done a massive cull? We're you relieved? Did you have regrets?

Happy Sunday!

Tamra Yes & yes!! 3mo
Coleen_Nieto @Tamra Did you find that you were more selective in buying books after? I am so sore! 3mo
Tamra @Coleen_Nieto absolutely. Plus now I only keep 5 star reads. So that has really kept the bulk way down. (Except for my grad program books which are all classics.) 3mo
Tamra @Coleen_Nieto it‘s a work out! 3mo
DGRachel I‘ve done a couple of major culls in my lifetime. I have a few regrets, books I got rid of for good reason at the time, but wish I had now. Not too many, though, so I guess that‘s okay. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet the amazing Michelle Obama and get a signed copy of her book. I decided to try the audiobook and I'm so glad I did. I spent several weeks listening and finished it last night. This memoir made me cry, reflect, and remember. It's very well written, frank and honest I highlyrecommend it. 💜💙💙💜💗😍

June 3
Last Days of Summer I discovered this gem when I was picking up books for a trip to NY in 2006 at Sam's Club. It sat on my shelf for about 2 years.

I read this every summer. You definitely have to suspend belief but I find it funny, sad, poignant, and definitely worth reading

I think this book is underrated, but definitely a favorite.
