Hi everyone, I know its been a while and I haven't shared much with you all but I just wanted to let you know next year I am going travelling first to Thailand then on to Australia because I got my working holiday visa so I'll be over there for the year.

I hope your 2024 will be bigger and better and you achieve everything you all wanted.

Love Kay ❤️

The stories you can tell when you visit Rome.

Love, loss, lust, food, friends and many more thing's that would make people blush 😊

What are you book recommendations for Italy?
I'm staying in Rome but today I am travelling to Naples.

tpixie Exciting! I hope to go to Italy 🇮🇹 one day. How are you travelling 🧳 from place to place? ( I‘m reading a bewitching novel about Charlotte, the Queen of Naples and her sister Marie Antoinette! 1mo

If anyone is on a book app called FABLE please feel free to add me.
As I can't get litsy on my phone anymore I am rarely on it, unfortunately.

Check out Fable on the App Store! https://fable.co/download

Hi guys. The litsy app has deleted itself off my phone and I can't find it to reinstall so for now I'll be using my laptop. It's never happened before so hopefully soon I'll find it and get it back.

Birdsong28 If you have an android phone you have to Google and download the file to install it as it's no longer on Google play. This is the link I used as I recently got a new phone and discovered this fact. https://baixarapk.gratis/en/app/1037017919/litsy 4mo
kaysworld1 @Birdsong28 unfortunately my phone won't let me download it. 😒 do you know why it was taken off Google play? 4mo
Birdsong28 @kaysworld1 Don't know. I know that you can't buy kindle books off the Amazon app now you have to do it on the website cos of Google and their policies so it might be something to with that why Litsy is not on there. You might have to change your settings to allow downloads from other sources and that might work. That is what I did. 4mo
BethM @kaysworld1 I remember seeing something on the fb about it being google play that removed it. 4mo

My bank: Buying books seems to be becoming a pay day ritual these day's.
Me: But I live so close to a independent book shop.
My bank: Maybe ready some one the ones you bought last month.....
Me: Be careful how you speak to me! My best friends and past loves are in them book's, all I have to do is open them and call my army!

I throughly enjoyed this book.
It felt like a 'Battle Cry' book with a side dish of hatred, witchcraft, taking no shit, standing up for other woman.
Definitely one of my favourites.

Today is a rest and read day.
And doing the odd bit of washing kinda day.
I don't feel like being very sociable today so I'm staying in my room, 20 pages in on Nomadland it's not too bad. It's full of stories about why people choose van life some is for freedom and other's its about their financial situations.

Finally finished Greenlights last night had to pull an all nighter. Met the chef as he was just starting work at 6am he was shocked that I stayed up all night reading then pull 11 hours at work, he watched as I made a triple coffee shot, he just shuck his head. Dedication and coffee ☕️
I enjoyed the book and all his personal ramblings but toward the end it was a hard to get through as he started repeating things.

Bought these from a local bookshop.

I'll be honest with you I am all for shoping local and small independent businesses but boy that price... I won't be buying books again for a while I'll be turning to the library I think, which is unfortunate but I can't condone the price of book's.
