Rainbow Brite Saves Christmas | Justin Spelvin, Kora Oliver

Tonight's bedtime stories. This Rainbow Brite book was published in 2004, but I'm telling you I was taken back to 1987 and I was 5 years old again. Wow, talk about nostalgia.

Tonight's bedtime stories. I didn't read any last night, so made up for that tonight. These were all 5 star reads for me. A total of 124 words found for #WGWordsearch for 1,240 points.

This was disturbingly good. I regret waiting so long to read this one. 5 stars for sure. Despite this not being a holiday book, I managed 22 words for #WGWordsearch for 220 points. Christmas was actually used on three occasions.

@StayCurious, sorry Renee, I tried to get the numbers to you sooner, but you know... stupid work always gets in the way of the fun stuff. I did not participate in this week's game unfortunately, but I did get quite a few points from the wordsearch, so at least that's something.

I'll focus more on the bingo cards this week (hopefully).

I finished this one last night. Wow, I didn't realize how hard it was going to be to try and get those holiday words in while listening to the audiobook. I'm a multitasker and I'm usually doing something else while listening to my audiobooks, so I don't have time to stop and add tally my words. Luckily I own a copy of this book so I'll go back and add those words in later.

#WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers @StayCurious

PuddleJumper I keep forgetting to do the word search. I don't pay that much attention when reading lol 7d

TheSpineView Great job! 💚🎄❤🎁💚🎅📖📚 7d
TheAromaofBooks I don't think I could do the word search on audio! For my physical books, I'm just using an index card with the bonus words written on it for my bookmark, and then making tally hashes as I go. I couldn't believe how much the book I read yesterday used the word snow! 😂 7d
aperfectmjk @TheAromaofBooks it is very challenging on audio. Also, you're right, the amount of words that can be found is crazy. The possibility for points is too enticing not to try. 7d
aperfectmjk @StayCurious @Clwojick, since there are 3 stories in this one, do we get additional points? This is the buddy read, so that would make it tricky. 7d
Clwojick I definitely don‘t think I‘ll be able to catch them all on audio. The kindle is the easiest, since you can search by word lol. 7d

StayCurious @aperfectmjk I didn‘t think of that when I picked it lol. Yes, give yourself 50 for the first one and 25 for each of the others. 6d
StayCurious @aperfectmjk I‘m not counting for audiobooks - it *is* too hard. I‘m mostly doing my ebooks since you can use the search function and for physical books I do a chapter at a time - just scanning quickly- I‘m sure I‘m missing a bunch lol. 6d
aperfectmjk @StayCurious, great, thanks, adding another 5 because it's a show. 😉 6d
StayCurious @TheAromaofBooks smart! I found almost 500 points in one chapter - there was a snow storm lol 6d
TheAromaofBooks @StayCurious - my husband was laughing at me last night because I was reading on the couch and literally had a pen in my hand hovering over the index card making hash marks 😂 They were saying “Christmas“ about every-other sentence! 6d

This was such a cute poetry book for kids, though let's be honest, this is perfect for book lovers of any age. Simple and sweet, right to the heart. 🥰

I found a few other random children's books at the book fair that I didn't post, and this was one of them. When I took one look at this book, I thought "Hey, that looks familiar!" So I added it to my bag, and sure enough, I read through it this morning and it all came flooding back to me.

My mother collects mice figurines, so as a child I would always seem to be drawn to books with mice. ?

Okay, the stack on the left are the books I've chosen for #WinterGames #TeamGameSleighers and #Bookspinbingo (along with some audiobooks) the stack on the right are additional options that I may mix in here and there. Some of them include short stories, so I may just read a few stories for additional points. 🤷‍♀️

Book Haul post 2 of 2. I did snag a few more Christmas novels. I imagine I'll read them eventually.

I WENT BACK! ?‍♀️ I couldn't stand knowing that they were just going to "recycle"... basically shred all the leftover, unwanted books. Today was clean sweep day, all the books you want to take for $1. I came home with 59 books. I have no room for these... but... at least they aren't being shredded.

Book Haul post 1 of 2.

BookDadGirlDad 59 for $1!!! I am completely jealous. I am also amazed at your control to grab ONLY 59.😁😁 3w
Roary47 Oh man. I wish more of us could have come to save the books from the shredder 😭 3w
aperfectmjk @Roary47 I know... I wish you all could have been there too! I don't have too many friends locally that read so there weren't many to tell. 😥 3w
