I thought this was a book forum but I noticed that it is until someone wants to use it for personal agenda. This is not a lecture it is just good bye. Won't stand by while the person who introduce me to this forum is raked over the coals it it.

AmyG This saddens me. I haven‘t seen anything like this in a long time. I didn‘t even see what happenned. (edited) 1y
TheKidUpstairs I've clearly missed something that went on. I'm so sorry to hear this, and I'm sorry that this doesn't feel like a safe space anymore. 1y
RamsFan1963 Do you have to leave? Can't you just block the person with the agenda? You should let this one person take away your enjoyment of Litsy. 1y

This easy read was so uplifting. Reminds me that is what the library is all about. Can't wait for the doors to be open once again. Great book for all ages. Never too old or young for this lesson.

One of the hazards of working in a library is that you can fall into a book if you are not looking where you are going. 😱. This was not a part of my plan on the 29th day for the last month of the year.

This cozy mystery is #8 in the Hannah Swensen series. It was a little different and I like the twist. All family members got involved and it moved along nicely. I am not sick of Lake Eden yet so on to the next.

The one I loved the most was The Great Gatsby. I like it so much it is on my to read list for a second read.

Copwithabook The House on Mango Street and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. I didn‘t get introduced to good diverse literature until my senior year, and it all started with these two novels. 2y
451Degrees @DAB loved The Great Gatsby as well! Such a nostalgic feeling when I think of it! @Copwithabook I haven‘t read either of these but always wanted to check them out! Thanks for playing guys!💙 2y

This book had three mysteries to be solved including the murder. I still have a problem with the triangle but since it is written in the first person I will have to put up with the elaborate details for Hannah's personal life. If you like cozy mystery you will enjoy this one and lets not forget all the new recipes.
