The dogbeast and I found this on one of our many walks while in Beaufort, NC this past weekend.

valeriegeary That is a well-curated LFL! 😍 8mo
Librarianaut @valeriegeary That‘s what I thought, too!!! Sometimes the collections I see in LFLs are a bit...staid (not that I am complaining- sharing books is a beautiful thing!) 8mo

Sunday reading.
Trying to relax.
Ice brought down one a tree in my front yard and another in my neighbor‘s.
Every little crack I hear portends doom.
So...epic Greek stories it is.

This book was one of the first to help me see beyond myself (I was a very young adult when I read it); it helped me see that even though things may happen *to* me they do not define me and they do not dictate my future behavior. This book changed the way I see the world.

LauraJ Wow, that‘s so nice to see 9mo
ErinSueMreads That‘s awesome! That‘s also great that it affected you so much as a young reader and kind of shaped your life at a tender age 9mo

Snow day B&B: breakfast & book. I‘m reading Hellbent (third Orphan X book). If you like over-the-top super secret agent stuff, this is for you. Hurwitz is funny, too. I particularly like his treatment of women- they are generally badasses (even the ones being rescued from desperate circumstances). He fully points out through the action that women have their own types of power, as well as being able to be physically & intellectually strong.

Grrlbrarian That Stormtrooper mug tho 🙌😂 9mo
Bklover That fruit looks yummy! 9mo
JaneyWaneyB I love the Orphan X series hope you are too. He could give Bourne a run for his money 9mo

I‘m the Librarianaut!
I explore places, books, and ideas.
I find adventure wherever I can.
I‘m famous for wrangling books and have been called a toddler-whisperer by adults dazed at my powers of story time.
My mum calls me “Laura” but that‘s only because she had to pick something when I was born, not knowing who I would become.

Hey Littens! I‘m thinking about signing up for Kindle Unlimited but would love to hear what you think of the service. Anyone out there use it? Is it worth it? Many thanks ❤️😎😀

LibrarianJen I don‘t subscribe to it because a lot of what‘s offered is also free for prime or is available through my library‘s ebook collections. However, I do subscribe to Audible! 2y
SassyBookworm I also stopped the service bc I could get so many books through my library! I‘m totally addicted to my Libby app, which uses Amazon! I had also noticed that most of the books I wanted either weren‘t offered or were pretty cheap (I like to read Indy authors when I can!). But I would highly suggest checking out your libraries ebook collection before you make your final decision 🤓 Happy Reading!!! 2y
Librarianaut @LibrarianJen @Chrysta23 thank you! I was thinking that my public library‘s ebook offerings might be just as good (I‘ve been using them for a long time and love their service) 2y

My old Kindle Keyboard finally bought the dust (not even hubby‘s install of a new battery saved it).
So...I got a new Kindle Oasis.
First read on the new device? Warbringer!

angrylilasian Ooo! How do you like it? 2y
Librarianaut @ReadingOver50 the Kindle Keyboard is a pretty awesome device; mine lasted about six years! I know I will miss using it - though I am keeping it because it‘s got Timothy Zahn‘s autograph on the back! 2y
Librarianaut @angrylilasian so far so good! I had to reboot it once after initially starting it up; I guess they suffer summoning sickness lol 2y

I had the privilege of hosting Brian Yanish at my school earlier this week!! He was amazing. Since his visit, I've been hearing from kids all week about the art they've been making out of their recycle bins at home. If you're a school or children's public librarian- I highly recommend bringing him to your school! #ScrapKins

I hope all the #FlLittens are getting to safe places. I hear the highway roads are parking lots and gas is extremely scarce. Most of my family live in major flood zones in Tampa, but they've all got safe places to go to (thank goodness). My thoughts and heart are with all in the path.

LitLogophile Tampa is on my mind today, too! It's my home and my family is currently in Sarasota, safe from flood zones. I'll be thinking about all of the families dealing with this crazy storm! My dad is listening to audiobooks 😂 2y
