Made my goal of 6 books read from my physical shelves plus added 3 more for a total of 20 books towards my goal of 50 before I‘m allowed to acquire new books. I made a reading plan and actually stuck to it. Now to prepare my March stack!

My goal for the year is to read 50 books from my physical shelves. In the first month I‘ve read 11, for a total of 20 books read this month! The only reason I‘m thankful to live in Michigan is for #snowdays #teacher #booklove #bookpurge Now, into some non-fic!

#shelfieday #booksandtea My goal for the year is to read 50 books off of my physical shelf before bringing in anything new! I need help! One month is almost gone and I‘ve managed to make it through 10 books!

BookishMarginalia That‘s actually quite good! 20% of your goal achieved in 8% of the time budgeted. You go! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 5mo

Wendirella I don‘t want it to take me anywhere near a year @BookishMarginalia! I can‘t go that long without new books! I hoping to reach the goal in 6 months! 5mo

The Neverending Story | Michael Ende, Ralph Manheim
post image

Loved this movie as a child. Saw the book while perusing the children's books with my daughter and thought "why not?" #Punki is being her usual cute self over there.

Little_Reader I LOVED the movie as a kid, but never read the book. Let me know how it is! 2y
Wendirella It was alright @Little_Reader It was both movies in one book.... I feel like the movies were more detailed (shocking!) but it has been many years since I've seen them. 2y
Little_Reader I'll be honest, I loved the second one because I had a crush on Jonathan Brandis. 😍 2y

This is disgusting. I'm proud the say that my 4 1/2 year old is in the 4% that cannot name him. She said "It's a clown Mom. What's his name?! Drew?!?!"

Hooked_on_books You should definitely feel proud! I read this book a while back. It's great and horrifying at the same time. 2y

Oh, just repurposing some things into bookmarks and rereading American Gods before the television series starts 😬

Wendirella @BethM I won a t-shirt and the first thing I thought when I saw the tag was "I need to turn that into a bookmark!" Even my husband (who isn't a reader) thought it was a great idea lol 2y

My TBR shelf is full. Too many choices, I can't choose my next pick! HELP!!

Ian American Gods is my favorite book ever and very good if you want a sort of gritty escapism type thing 2y
Wendirella It's one of my favorites also, @Ian! I intend to reread it soon! 2y
Brenley I need to reread American Gods as well. I read it back in High School and I don't think I was ready for it. 2y
Ian Awesome! I'm always surprised at how many people here haven't read it yet. Hope you enjoy the reread when you get to it :) 2y

Received my #owlpost yesterday!! I won't share the title but I will share the cute bookmark from Emily (I don't know her handle to tag her!!). I was not excited when I saw what kind of book this was but it was a sick day so I started it. And finished it! This is why I joined this group...to be exposed to books I wouldn't normally choose for myself.

I received this ARC and they accidentally sent me 4 copies! I have one extra left! If anyone is interested, leave me a comment and I'll choose someone at random to send it to.

Hawthorn dazzled me. This book was a ball of emotion but in a good way. Love me a good YA novel every once in a while.

bookandcat I really wanted to like this book but...uh...I hated it. I thought there was so much wrong with it. One of my very few one star books for NetGalley. Maybe I just didn't get it :-/ glad you liked it! 3y

I've been waiting to read this ever since I finished "My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry" At first I disliked Britt-Marie very much. By the end of the book I wanted to hear her story and now I get to!

BethM This is on my TBR too! 3y
britt_brooke I'm reading this now, too. 😁 3y
slhbooks So many hurt and misunderstood people in the world...it's good to take the time to listen to their story. I enjoyed this one. Hope you do too! 3y
Wendirella I really hope I do too @slhbooks. I had just lost my grandmother when I read "My Grandmother..." and by the end of the book I felt so sympathetic towards Britt-Marie and really wanted to hear her story. Also, I think Bachman is becoming a new fave. Just finished "A Man Called Ove" recently and enjoyed it as well! 3y
