So good I couldn‘t even fit them all in! #botm

PerksOfBeingABookworm These would be all of the books I would order too! That‘s so wild. I‘ve put myself on a book-buying budget. I‘m trying to justify also getting A Rogue of One‘s Own... but the other two are musts. 1y
TaciturnWhenReading @PerksOfBeingABookworm HaHa. My book buying budget has taken a beating these last months. One of the few joys still viable! 😂 (edited) 1y

I‘m over a hundred pages in and I just REALLY don‘t like Kailyn... does it get better? Should I keep going? Anyone read this one?

CocoReads I enjoyed it. She wasn‘t my favorite person but it does get better if I remember correctly 2y

Finally, finally, finally!! It‘s nice enough to sit outside and read!

Sadly, quarantining neighbors are also excited for the nice weather and are not reading but are SUPER loud.

Complaining, not complaining.

There were several titles that I wanted but couldn‘t get due to Covid-related measures that BOTM has put in place. But I did grab one add on.

Still in my Covid-related reading slump anyway so this will do.

Grabbed this from Facebook. Sorry if it‘s a repeat here - but how fun to imagine these groups together?? I‘d socially isolate at Barton Wood I think. Maybe Kellynchbury! 🤣🤣

michellelav I'm listening to my first Jane Austen! Pride and prejudice 😍 I'm on chapter 31! I may have to wait til I'm done to decide but I'd love chatting with Elizabeth 📖😊 2y
TaciturnWhenReading @michellelav I hope you love it! 😀 2y

wanderinglynn Poor Elinor stuck with Wickham & Frank Churchill. I‘d opt for Barton Wood. Mrs. Jennings, albeit a talkative nosy busybody, is at least fun. 4mo

Cute! Bookseller Nina navigates her anxious way through new-found family drama and a budding romance. Light and funny with (mostly) adorable characters. 3.5 out of 5 ⭐️ s.

I hardly ever order from BookOutlet anymore. Mostly because I have too many unread books at home already. But once in a while I treat myself. And really, why not? 😻🥳 #bookoutlet #bookmail

I‘ve been in a terrible reading slump lately that I CANNOT seem to shake.

Went to the Half Price Books Tent Sale today hoping something would tempt me. But it was small and crowded and only found a few things in the end. Still slumping. 🤨😖

Because my drive to work has been awful lately, with tons of construction delays, I‘ve taken to audio driving. So now my #bookoutlet orders look like this! 👀 📚

CoverToCoverGirl Nice! I love audiobooks, I listen to at least one or two a week, especially while I‘m walking or when I‘m to busy to sit and read a physical book. 3y
stacybmartin Audiobooks are awesome - with a one hour commute each way to work and a lab job where I‘m alone most of the time, I listen to A LOT. Thankfully, my library carries them now so I can borrow tons. 💜 3y
