Graciouswarriorprincess @DebinHawaii You have another box from me arriving on Thursday. It‘s from Amazon so just keep a look out for it. Thanks 3h
DebinHawaii Yay! I‘m glad you got your box. 🎉 I received your box last night but got home too late to take a picture. I‘ll post one tonight though & I‘ll keep an eye out for the other one. 3h
Graciouswarriorprincess @DebinHawaii Glad that it arrived! No worries about posting. I normally don‘t get home until late with working my library job and a pt job but I took tonight off as I needed a break. 2h

I earned two badges for my library summer reading program in Beanstack.

Are you participating in your library‘s summer reading program?

Graciouswarriorprincess @DGRachel I am using for one of the libraries back home that I pay for. Durham county isn‘t doing it this year for summer reading. But I do enjoy Beanstack. 1w
DGRachel I‘ve done CharMeck‘s summer reading for years and I think this is the 3rd year they‘ve used Beanstack, but it‘s the first year I‘ve used their App and it‘s been a game changer for tracking. 😍 1w
Graciouswarriorprincess @DGRachel How fun! I swear Durham and Wake County libraries are so behind in some things. Now that I work for DC public library, they really need to step up the game. I am making changes with management at our branch. 1w
DGRachel @Graciouswarriorprincess That‘s exciting! 1w
Graciouswarriorprincess @DGRachel I am trying. Thanks! 😊 1w

The Lioness: A Novel | Chris Bohjalian
post image
Pickpick

The Lioness is a combination of historical fiction and suspense with a unique Tanzanian safari setting. This book has realistic characters and evocative descriptions of the characters relationships both past and present. Chris keeps us guessing right up until the end with a gripping, satisfying conclusion with a twist that I didn‘t see coming.

I listened to this as an audiobook and the narrative was stunning! Another fabulous book! Book 47.

Summer Reading | Hilma Wolitzer
post image

As a librarian, I am dismayed that our county public library system isn‘t doing summer reading. However, we decided at our branch to put together a summer reading program with the supplies on hand and online printable items. Yesterday, this is the door that I made off the circulation desk.

DivineDiana That is disappointing, but cheers to you and the staff for creating an alternative celebration of summer reading! 👏🏻📚👍🏻 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DivineDiana Thanks! We are making it work! 1mo
Bookzombie I‘m so glad your branch is creating their own! I love summer reading programs. 1mo

I don‘t know about you but I can‘t wait for my first 3 day weekend of 2022!

Normally I am working either my library job or my part time or doing homework for my MLIS degree. Not this weekend!!

So, this girl is going to read and relax all weekend by the pool!

What are your Memorial Day weekend plans?

DGRachel Yay! I‘m so glad you can enjoy the full three day! 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DGRachel Thanks! I miss you! Hope that you and your mom are doing well!! 1mo
DGRachel I miss you, too! We‘re both good but very slowly going out in public. It feels like we try one thing, have a bad experience, and go back to personal lock down. But, we ventured into a restaurant tonight. Baby steps. ☺️ 1mo
