Too Many Books! | Gilles Tibo
post image

One of my bookcases with too many (no such thing) TBR books! I even bet against myself to see if I can go through it all by the end of this year, providing I don‘t get anymore ARCs and buy any more books! What do you think?

cariashley I try that every year.. never works 😜 15h
StephanieMarie This year I set a limit for myself that I am allowed to buy 1 book for every 3 books I read from my TBR. I'm currently allowed to buy negative 33 books 😂😂😂 hope you have better success than me! 13h
Ruthiella You can certainly make a dent in it if you set your mind to it! How are you about DNFing? 12h

Gone Too Long | Lori Roy

Hello everyone! I‘ve been gone too long due to back injury and acute pneumonia which took me a long time to recover, plus difficulties at my job. I fell into a major depression. However, things are looking up. I‘m working at another place and working on myself and I‘m going through some things which need to be resolved. With that being said, I still have a book ( look below in comments)

Quirkybookworm That belongs to someone. Still in a perfect condition! I also have three packages long overdue back in December😳😳I know! I was majorly depressed! I‘m quite embarrassed! I will send the book back as of tomorrow and send the packages one at a time due to tight budget. Please forgive me. It will not happen again. (edited) 1w
Lovesbooks87 Glad to hear that you are feeling better! Hope everything starts to look up for you! Would the book happen to be Where the Crawdads Sing? (edited) 1w
Quirkybookworm Yes!! Thousand times yes! And I‘m so so so so sowwy!!! 1w

A big hug for you!❤️❤️❤️❤️ 1w

Sent out 5 pkgs for the swaps I‘m behind on at the moment. This month has been totally crazy where I‘m working 80 to 90 hrs a week. I barely have time for anything let alone a Book. Not ignoring anyone. Just don‘t have time to be on puter. After I wake up, I will post the receipts from PO if I remember! I don‘t have my Christmas tree or decorations up at all😭😳😭😳. Or even go Christmas shopping for family!! I need an assistant for real!!

inthegreensandblues You need a break! I hope you are able to relax and enjoy your Christmas! 🎄🤗 7mo
Avanders 😰 sorry you've been so busy! Hope you have time for some rest and relaxation soon! 🤞🏽🤞🏽 7mo
EH2018 Hey, sounds like you are having a rough time. Sorry it was so stressful at this time of year 😟 If you ever get stuck, if you reach out to a swap host ahead of time we might be able to work something out 😊 I let your swap know it should be on the way. Take care, and I hope you have some time to rest and relax soon. 7mo
EH2018 Hello, just checking to see if you sent out your Merry and Bright swap package to @AmberWB? If so, please send a tracking number...she has not received it yet... Thanks! 7mo

Hey gang! You want to vote on YA if 2018? Well, here‘s your chance. There are great selections to vote from! https://bookshimmyawards.com/. The site made it really easy to vote also! Check it out!

UnidragonFrag It did make it very easy to vote, but unfortunately i haven't read most of those books and didn't feel right voting by hype. So i only voted in 5 categories lol 8mo
Avanders Hello! Have you received your #stuffedstockingswap #sss package? If so, it'd be lovely if you could post a pic & show off the goodies 🤗 If not, let me know and I'll follow up! ♥️🎄 8mo
Quirkybookworm I got the pkg couple weeks ago. I lost track of the dates due to working 12 hrs shift everyday and haven‘t had a day off yet due to being understaffed. I work and sleep nowadaya!! 😳😳😳. I will open it tomorrow and I have the pkgs to send out tomorrow. They‘ve been sitting at my front door and I kept spacing!! They‘re in my Jeep right now and will get them out as soon as I get off at 9 am! Sorry! I lost track of time honest! @Avanders (edited) 7mo
Avanders @Quirkybookworm sounds like a rough couple weeks! Okay send the tracking number once you have it ☺️🎄 7mo

Remember the Lilac Girls? Now there‘s Lost Roses. This is going to be a cool story during WWI! It‘ll be out in April!!

Herschelian Have you noticed how many books have a cover picture of one, two or three women walking off wither backs to you. Seems something of a trend. 8mo
Raemorales Lilac girls wrecked me to my soul, I can‘t wait for this one! 8mo
rwmg @Herschelian It always used to be a single woman in a gown, quarter profile gazing off into the distance. Will future historians be able to date books by their cover art? 8mo
Quirkybookworm I believe they‘re trying to do this trend partly due to misunderstandings between historical novels and historical romance. I mean, look at Lilac Girls, it sold quite well. Now imagine a gal staring and etc., I believe it wouldn‘t sell as well . Everything factors into one book and what makes it sell. @Herschelian @rwmg 8mo

HELP! I‘ve looked all over for this book I‘ve won while back. Was going to read it tonight bc I need to give my review. Can‘t find it. Only thing I can think is I accidentally wrapped this instead of the other book which is almost similar to colors and etc. so those who received books from me got this in bookswaps can you return it and I get you a book of your choice. Please? Thanks! @lindsayripley @LiteraryLona and I forgot who else.

This is what I call my crazy looks! No make up and no humidity for my wild curls! I just got off work yesterday morning. I work a lot of overtime. I truly love being a CNA with developmentally disabled adults. I‘ve been doing it for over 25 years. I‘m still waiting for snow to hit here. I‘m a pure blooded winter gal here. I‘ve been deaf since birth but many don‘t know. Want to know more, just ask! 💕❤️👍🏻 #fryayintro. @howjessreads
