Anyone reading dresden? I just finished turn coat and omfg.

wanderinglynn I have read most of the series and really enjoyed it. 3mo
TheSpineView I've read only the first 3 books in the series. I have book 4 on hold at the library. 3mo
Bookboss I adore this series. The audiobooks are fabulous! 3mo
KathyWheeler I‘ve listened to all of them — the audiobooks are just great. I do get a little tired of Harry being able to think about sex no matter the situation, but I manage to ignore it. 3mo
Laughterhp I love this series on audio so much! I recently finished book 13! Book 12 is so good. I agree @KathyWheeler , he definitely annoys me at some points with his sex talk and when he says things like “oh a girl hit me so I can‘t get upset because I‘m a man”. 3mo

I'm not going to be posting exclusively about my publishing stuff now but you will all see a bit more about it. The algorithms are notoriously tetchy and I can't see a lot of the stuff I need to see until I get to 100 people on these news pages I'm managing for authors

So I guess what I'm saying is I'm going to be posting new pages and anyone who likes the pages would have my undying love forever and always.

Look at this insane insta profile I just found. Like how?!?

vivastory Only possibility is chapter book or single issue comic books. 5mo
ErinSueMreads Thats what I was thinking too! But no like half of them are full length books. The other half are nancy drew length. Totally crazy to me 5mo
Amiable I agree with @vivastory . Or also this person records every single book they pick up whether they actually read more than a few pages or not. 5mo

megnews I‘ve definitely upped my numbers since joining Litsy and reading more MG, YA, graphic novels, and audiobooks but this seems impossible. 5mo
ChaoticMissAdventures I cannot imagine remembering anything about the books or even enjoying them speeding through them like that. But that is just me. 5mo
FelinesAndFelonies I'm not saying their lying but.... If I counted Pete the Cat or Mo Williams books, I'd be WAY over my140. 5mo
Palimpsest I agree with @FelinesAndFelonies I read at least three books with my son a day so that would put me at over 1,000 books a year even if I‘ve read Pete the Cat‘s Trip to the Supermarket forty times. The only books I do count that are kids are young readers like The Thickety or Fablehaven. So I‘ve only read 34 books this year. I really find this hard to believe. They obviously aren‘t reading books like Middlemarch or Proust. 5mo
MidnightBookGirl Devil's Advocate here, but maybe they don't have a full time job or kids. Maybe they listen to audio at an insane speed (I personally do that, usually 2.2x, so while my numbers aren't anywhere this high, if I didn't have a FT and PT job, I would SLAY my audio TBR), maybe they just read super fast (my bookstore co-worker read over 22 books on a week vacation because she devours the written word). I obviously need to stop sleeping to up my game! lol 5mo
jinxmoon I have a friend who is a super fast reader (there‘s a special term but I don‘t know the english one) She reads ~400 pages in about an hour. She reads two books every day only on the train on her way to work. Maybe that person is the same. 5mo
zguta How long have they been posting books on Goodreads? I‘m up to 468 books myself and many I forget to list but I‘ve been posting there for years. I‘m actually low compared to many avid readers and librarians but it doesn‘t matter —one book or hundreds —just keep reading and enjoy the added knowledge and depth in your life. Reading is fun, not a race. 5mo

let me tell you all a story. So I joined this poetry swap hosted by the lovely @TheBookHippie. They sent me my match @Readergrrl. All is well. I receive her package and am waiting for my Amazon stuff (I know) to arrive. When it does arrive it's flipping nail clippers. I shit you not. have to wait for new book. It arrives 2 hours before i leave for vacation. So your package is coming from red river nm 😆 should be to you tomorrow or the next day.

Megabooks Ridiculous! 6mo
Chrissyreadit I‘m sorry! Glad you were able to sort it out though!! 6mo
Readergrrl No worries here! I‘m leaving for Canada on the 7th or 8th (hopefully I‘ll still be able to cross on the 9th!!!), so if I don‘t receive it before that, then I‘ll have a nice surprise waiting for me when I get home!! So no worries here! 6mo

Readergrrl As an aside, even though @ErinSueMreads tagged me on this post, I never received a notification for it. I just happened to catch it as I was scrolling through this morning. That‘s weird! Anyway, all will work out! 😊 (edited) 6mo
Readergrrl I‘ve discovered that, even though I live in a fairly busy part of Connecticut, my mail is often delayed. So I‘m used to all sorts of postal shenanigans!! 6mo

Omg, the unbelievable has happened. I finished a #bookspin book! This was my #doublespin for February. So glad I finally checked it off.

The book itself was great. Literally no reason it should have taken me so long 🤣🤣. I love love love harry and all the other characters. I'm going to be so sad when this is done. At the rate I'm going though that will take a century 🤣🤣🤣

Soooo my guy wanted me to start working on decorations for a wedding next fall...........ie our wedding.....which I do not have a ring for yet 😆😆😆😆......at any rate I'm on the hunt for books that are damaged. I'm talking chewed up books, water damaged, etc. I'm going to be making TONS of paper flowers but I don't want to destroy good books. If you have any i'll take them off your hands and pay shipping! one book will make a ton of flowers.

rockpools Aw. Congratulations - did you make that bouquet? So pretty! 6mo
ErinSueMreads I did not but that's the inspiration! @rockpools thank you! 6mo
tjwill What a great idea! A friend made me a wreath with some book page flowers, which I love! A whole bouquet will be gorgeous! Ask your local library (or even school libraries) if they have weeded any old books lately that you could have. That‘s probably going to be the easiest and most economical way. 6mo

He's following up on ideas he and Prachett created over 30 years ago, he's got the buy in of the amazing cast from the first tv series, and he's collaborating with John Finnemore, whose Cabin Pressure radio serial is amazingly funny.

And clearly I'm a fan of the original, given my username. ;)

This book was such a let down. I didn't hate it. I didn't love it. The magic just wasn't there for me. It had really cool elements, but so much of it seemed underthought.

ErinSueMreads This was also my #bookspin for May @TheAromaofBooks ! 8mo
JamieArc Interesting. A friend who is an English teacher whose taste in books I jive with highly recommended this book. Now I‘m really curious. 8mo
ErinSueMreads I wanted to love it so much. And there were pieces of it that I LOVED. But I feel like it just had so much more potential. @JamieArc I'd be curious to see what you think. 8mo
TheAromaofBooks Always so sad when a book just doesn't quite deliver the way you hoped!! 8mo

Alright yall....what do you do when you are supposed to be reviewing a book and you are ready to dnf it halfway through the first chapter?

KrystalClarity You could make that your review, just say you weren‘t able to finish it and why. Some constructive criticism may be in order. Good luck with whatever you decide to do! 10mo
Palimpsest Hmm.. not sure, but I know that years ago I won a book from Goodreads and neglected to read and review it and I haven‘t won a giveaway from them since. 😬 Maybe skim the rest of the book and then be honest that you thought it was terrible for whatever reasons. 10mo

OMGGGGGG I FINALLY FINISHED THIS DANG THING! I'm sort of feeling like I'm just going to ignore that last scene and treat thus as a standalone book......

Thats one that has been on my #bookspinbingo since January 😖😖 @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks It's always a great feeling to get a big one off the list!! 10mo
