I never thought I'd read this book, but seeing The Testaments is this months B&N Book Club pick for the October discussion I kinda have to read it now. I really hope I enjoy both books.

This morning I finished listening to The Dirt on my way to work so I started listening to You. It's my 3rd audiobook this month. I love that I can #audiocrochet at home AND at work (on my breaks of course).

I have about 4 more hours left in this audiobook. I'm not enjoying it as much as I hoped I would, but I can't DNF it seeing it's the BN book club pick for next months discussion.

When I got home last night I was happy to see a package from my step-mom. I cried when it turned out to be an urn necklace with my Dad's ashes.

Also, I'm really happy with how this blanket it turning out. I really hope my friend loves it once it's finished 🤞🤞

Megabooks What a lovely way to remember your dad! 💙💙 4w
cassiopia @Megabooks yes it is. He had a tiger head tattoo on his right forearm so in his memory I'm going to get a Tigger tattoo in the same spot. That way it can be for both of us (tiger for him and my favorite character for me). 4w
Megabooks That‘s so wonderful!! 4w

Yesterday I realized I've procrastinated for a little longer than I should have. So now I'll be taking my crochet project with me to work so I can work on it on my lunch breaks in order for these blankets to be finished on time. AND I have to have Inland read for next months book club discussion. All I have to say is thank goodness for audiobooks!! #audiocrocheting

This literally had me on the edge of seat!!!!! I even threw soda bottle tops at one point.

Guys, this is such a great thriller that anyone who loves the genre HAS to read this book.

So. F**king. Good!!

Guys, I need advice.

Last night I had a customer come in with her children and her niece. Her niece is dyslexic and has a very hard time reading, but she wants to read. Are there any tricks or tips that I can do or give to help her out? I want to make sure that she knows that I'm there to help her out in any way I can. They'll be coming to my store every weekend for storytime.

Thanks in advance 💜💜

BookNAround My 10 year old nephew with dyslexia uses a free service that reads the books to him as he follows along in the print version. Not sure what it‘s called though. 1mo
LitLogophile I‘m dyslexic and have lots of tips! One option is audio read along, also Kindles come with a “dyslexia” font option that make the letters more readable to dyslexic individuals. Also would highly recommend The Dyslexic Advantage, which is written in a way that makes it easy for dyslexic readers😊 1mo
BBooks I'm dyslexic, it was discovered when I was in the 2nd grade and was fortunate enough to get help and mine is not as severe as others but was frustrating all the same. It still a challenge especially when I'm tired. Let her know shes not alone and being aware if half the battle. Practice, practice, practice and don't let dyslexia stop you reading what you want to read is my advice. 📚📚📚 1mo
See All 7 Comments
cassiopia @BookNAround thank you! I will do some really to find out what service that is. 1mo
cassiopia @LitLogophile @BBooks thank you both! I will make sure I let her about all the options she has. I never thought of reading along with an audiobook, and that's so obvious. Thank you so much 💜 1mo
LibrarianRyan I agree along with everyone else. read along with an audio book. I do not remember if dyslexia is one of the educational disabilites that qualifies for TBBS service, but I do believe it does qualify for Bookshare service. Both of these services are free audiobooks for the blind, visually handicapped, and some educational disorders. 1mo
cassiopia @LibrarianRyan thank you for the tips! Also, sorry for the late reply. 1mo

cassiopia @Kaye I'm using all colors in both blankets. The one I'm going to do a chunky ombre. It's your standard double crochet but working with 3 skeins at one time. And the second one is going to be a chevron pattern with multiple stitches for a more textured look. 4mo
Kaye Sounds pretty. I hope you‘ll share progress photos. I like the colors you chose. 4mo

A captivating story of a truly deep friendship, but one event divides the two women tearing their friendship apart. Young-sook can't forgive or forget what happened in Jan 1949, but Mi-ja tries to make amends, even from afar, for decades. Will Young-sook find it in her heart to finally forgive her friend?

All I have to say is make sure you have a box of tissue, and ice-cream, on hand before finishing this one. #uglycrying #bnbookclub

Who else is planning on watching the movie this Friday? I'm curious to see how the movie showcases Nikki Sixx's OD at Franklin Plaza Hotel.

Wellreadhead I‘ll definitely be watching! 6mo

Barnes & Noble pick for the April 7th book club discussion. I'm glad that we have a book club that picks books outside of what I prefer to read, otherwise I would have never bought this book. Here's to another great read.

Also, I LOVE being back in retail. I'm not cut out for a 9-5 job. For someone who hates change, I like having a sporadic schedule.

This may be my favorite book of 2019. I don't remember the last time I truly cried at the ending of a book, but I did with this one.

It's a remarkable book about all the different kinds of love one has for parents, siblings, and partners. It's full of unconditional love, forgiveness, and it shows how the two put together can bring siblings back together even after years of not speaking.

It's been a busy two weeks for me, but I'm officially in Houston!!

As a early birthday present my aunt bought me a bookcase for my books, and she was kind enough to set up the cat condo for Domino 😍 I still have A LOT to unpack, but at least my books are already on the shelves. I start at B&N on Monday, and Book Club Night is Tuesday.

SW-T Congrats on everything! Hope you enjoy Houston 😊 7mo
C.Perone Congratulations 😊 7mo

Woohoo! I nailed my first 15,000 step day since I started tracking my steps.

I'm also in the home stretch of my countdown. 13 DAYS!... and I'm officially freaking out. I apologize in advance if I'm MIA over the next two weeks. There's still so much to do like getting my tires & brakes changed, and actually going through my clothes (at least I can part with 90% of my sweaters😂🤣😂). #houstonhereicome #litsywalkers

DarcysMom Yay! Congrats on a big step day! 👍😁 7mo

I finished listening to this audiobook last night and I loved the entire book. It is definitely eye opening, shocking, and disturbing at points. There were even a few times I found myself laughing. I love Nikki Sixx and I have even more respect for this man than I did before reading/listening to this book.
