Im@debating here....one of my colleagues is begging me to take Leia. Her brother doesn‘t have any time for this cat. My colleague had been taking care of her for her brother. I already hAve a dog and a cat. She‘s 4 months old. Should I adopt her or not?? 😳😳

WellReadCatLady Yesss she is adorable. I‘m sure your dog and cat will accept her! 3w
Dragon 😻 3w
Paperback.Propensity She is awfully cute. That's a lot to take on though. I guess it depends on the temperament of your cat and dog, and whether they're a handful or not. I have a cat and a dog too, and I know they wouldn't take it well. 3w

Seriously! This book should‘ve been translated YEARS ago in English. I can see why it‘s one of the most beloved classics all over the world. It belongs up with my Hobbit, Lord of the Rings series, Dunes, many classics on my shelves. I CANNNOT wait for the next book to come out here in USA!!!

Ruthiella Sounds good. I am loving the general interest in translated Sci-Fi and Fantasy just now! Worlds to discover!😀 1mo

Lo and behold, they made this plant holders for me! I‘m so touched by their kindness and generosity! Now, the question is....should I stain or paint this?

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 😜 3mo

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) 3mo
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) 3mo

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!!

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. 10mo

Raemorales Lilac girls wrecked me to my soul, I can‘t wait for this one! 11mo
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? 11mo
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 11mo
