The chaos is coming together and the new place is starting to feel like home. The other half of this room will be devoted to Funko Pops. If 90 % of the books are mine--10% are his; it is the reverse for Pops...and I love it! 😍😍😍 IKEA will be consulted soon as we've run out of shelves..🤷‍♀️

SOLD to the same company that owns Waterstones! Let's hope for positive change! May I suggest starting with removal of the toy section and the freaken rows of DVDs?!

KatieDid927 I agree about the DVDs, less so about the toys. I like them and they do help them boost sales. 1mo
Birdsong28 Waterstones is a really good company, I like their stores and online presence. Customer service is wonderful. And they don't sell dvds!!! Lol📚📖 1mo

Loved It! Lots of parts made me tear up! Especially when Karen talks about her mom having dementia and when Georgia talks about her struggles with anxiety. They also give so much respect to Michelle McNamara and the book makes me feel like less of a freak about a lot of things honestly. Highly recommend!

madamereadsalot1 What's this lmpbc thing all about? 2mo
Kayla.Adriena @madamereadsalot1 it's a group of 4 members and each person picks a book and marks notes in it then sends it to the next person and so on so on. Eventually you end up with your original book all marked up with everyone's notes! 2mo
madamereadsalot1 That sounds super cool. I'm in no place to participate right now, but one of these days I would like to! 2mo
Kayla.Adriena @madamereadsalot1 the time line is actually pretty relaxed, I sent every book late last round and no one cared. And if you do media mail it's cheap! 2mo

Hey ladies here are some possibilities I'm considering for my #lmpbc book choice. Let me know if you have read or are opposed to any of the above. I think the Amy Tan book may have some assault/triggers and I believe Florida is short stories. Please give your honest feedback 😊 @shellleigh33 @Skeebies05 @ruskigurl16

julesG The Hedgehog makes a good book club book. (just saying 😊) 3mo

ruskigurl16 The Kiss Quotient is on my TBR. I would love an opportunity to read it. And I haven't read any of them. 3mo
LiteraryinLititz Hedgehog would be a great discussion book! It‘s one of my favorites. But I‘m sure the others are good too! 3mo
Mamashep Hedgehog is the book that made me stop giving up on books I wasn‘t in to - I was half way through, thinking it was just ok and then something clicked. I ended up loving it and was so invested in the characters that I was in tears at the end. 3mo
Skeebies05 I was thinking the kiss quotient as well but the only one I have already read is Florida :) 3mo
Kayla.Adriena @Skeebies05 did you want to go with the Kiss Quotient for your pick? I'm leaning toward the Hedgehog based off all the feedback 😊 3mo

Not as intimidating as I thought it would be nor as "scary" as I had hoped, I liked it very much minus the epilogue. For some reason it reminds me of Downtown Abbey with all the descriptions of food and changing clothes and "going through." Sorry it is so so late. But I've finished it and it will go to @shellleigh33 next!! Thanks for a great round of #lmpbc @Skeebies05 @Crazeedi
