Hi everyone! The #two4tuesday questions got me thinking. Can you recommend your favorite bookshops in Pittsburgh, PA, Washington DC and Leesburg VA?

Thank you!!
#favebookstores

AmyG East City Bookshop in DC is great. An internet book friend works there. If you go and happen to see Emilie….tell her AmyG (from the internet) sent you. Have a great trip! (edited) 2w

Hi everyone,
As so many of you may know, my family and I have been devastated by COVID over the last couple of months. I was hospitalized and my husband passed away from COVID related Pneumonia on May 11th. So I've been MIA for a while. The amazing thing about this group is that even though I've been MIA, they have made sure I knew I was not alone. The #litsylove group has been absolutely wonderful and I cannot express how much I appreciate you

Look at me go! 3 #bookspin selections in a row! Yay! Thank you @thearomaofbooks for helping me figure out what to read next. I'm loving this.

I really enjoyed this book, I think it may come across as sentimental to some, but it hit all my spiritual buttons with the saints and superstitions.

The Stolen Child | Lisa Carey
Panpan

While reading this book, I was mostly confused. I wasn't sure if I was enjoying the book but I was definitely curious about it - enough to keep reading at least. Lots of mystical elements and magic. Ultimately I didn't love this book. I did enjoy The Mermaids Singing by Lisa Carey a great deal. I think it could be very interesting to others, it just wasn't my cup of tea. #bookspin @thearomaofbooks

This was the third book in the series and I enjoyed them all. I appreciated the way the author wrote about love in many its many forms. Forgiveness, mercy, kindness, caring, romantic, lasting. I finished this book 3 days ago and it's still on my mind.

I give this book 4*= I liked it, would love to discuss. Solid B - Thanks Marleed for the rating scale! Finally finished my bookspin for February! @thearomaofbooks #bookspin February
