1. I choose whatever sounds good in the moment. If I have just finished a book that affected me I try to read something completely different.
2. I don't take the bus or train often but I absolutely would.
3. Lately it seems like everything distracts me!
4. Tea

Becoming | Michelle Obama

I find that I am technically challenged when it comes to adding pictures and responding to surveys on litsy. I can take a screenshot but I can't figure out how to add multiple pictures, resize pictures to fit or how to create a survey similar to #friyayintro any assistance is most appreciated.

JackOBotts I use the Pic Collage app. I‘m not as savvy as some in this community, but it‘s worked okay for me. 👍🏼🙌🏼 In Litsy the “transform” tool can resize for the 1:1 view, I believe...makes a square. 🤔 (edited) 3w

There There: A novel | Tommy Orange
post image

So, I'm driving my son to an Avalanche game when he casually asks "Hey Mom, do you know who Tommy Orange is? He spoke at school today". I said of course I know who he is! I asked if he got a copy of his book and he said no, but he thinks he's going to buy it. Face Palm! He said he didn't tell me sooner because Tommy Orangw is new and he didn't think I would have heard of him. Where did I go wrong ? Lol!

Starting this today. I've had it for months, but I've been "saving" it. For what I couldn't say, but my birthday is coming up so I gave myself permission to read it. Does anyone else "save" books you really really want to read? No? Just me? ??
