@LibrarianRyan you are so sweet! Your box of books has arrived! It is so eclectic I laughed out loud. My mom is claiming two of the books- she likes steamy romance. I‘m going to try out the iron ons with my daughter.

LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. Did package 2 arrive? 1d
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan only this box arrived- media mail. 1d
LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit huh. The other was priority and should have been there first. Okay. I‘ll check into it. I have to find my receipt. 1d
See All 9 Comments
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan I will let you know if it arrives. That is odd. Maybe tomorrow. 1d
Crazeedi @LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit I sent a package priority mail last Tuesday to a town 2 hrs from here, it still not there, it ended up in Kentucky, lol. Still in transit (I'm in western PA) 1d
LibrarianRyan @Crazeedi gotta love the crazy mail system. 1d
Crazeedi @LibrarianRyan first time in forever I've had a problem, of course a present for my daughter! 1d
LibrarianRyan @chrissyreadit - your package 2 is really missing. The tracking number does not work at all. I have to go to the post office tomorrow so I will see what the heck is up with it. Just for FYI tracking 9500 1117 8776 9192 6362 08 9h
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan maybe I‘m just not meant to get a package for this swap..... 7h

@readordierachel these are from another book by Isa M. My SIL and I are Skype cooking so I can be motivated to cook. I am excited to try many recipes in this book! I love vegan cookbooks, but I rarely have time and energy to cook. Coconut rice, collards with pineapple and blackened tofu.

Braiding Sweetgrass | Robin Wall Kimmerer

#top6reads- I am tagging Braiding Sweetgrass because I love it- but it is unfinished- it is a book I need to engage with. The books I‘ve read this year are all fast reads- and easy to pick up and put down when work and school and life interfere with reading. Thanks @Avanders for the tag.
Anyone else want to share? @Bookzombie @mabell

#PSA Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has been a part of my entire life. War is never romantic or beautiful. I wonder if we look at the concept of inherited trauma and think of all the history of war in this country is it any wonder so many people are hurt damaged or angry. I‘ve only watched this movie not read the book. #goodnightsaigon #wanderingjune #peace #semperfi #warisnotananswer

Cinfhen Such a beautiful post! If you have family members who served, Thank You ❤️ 3w
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen you are sweet. My father was in Viet Nam. My husband in several wars and conflicts. My Brother just retired. I‘m angry at pro war machines, and false ideologies. The cost of war is infinite. 3w
Cinfhen I agree, but we still need to recognize the sacrifices these brave men & women undergo and the amount of courage it takes from the family as well. #WarIsNotTheAnswer but #HonorThesoldier (edited) 3w

Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen do they do a better job in Israel with veterans? Especially since everyone serves? Here the VA has not done a great job with treatment. I‘m very pro veteran- and do not believe any veteran or vets family should be in need. I knew wives who sold platelets to meet bills and many of our young families qualify for food stamps while serving. My nephew did not qualify for mental health services after being molested during my brothers deployment 3w
Cinfhen That‘s terrible @Chrissyreadit I‘m not 100% certain how good Israel is in regards to their vets. But I do know there are TONS of organizations who raise lots of money to help the families & those affected. Unfortunately in this country almost every single citizen has someone in their family who was directly impacted. For a young country they have seen plenty of conflicts 😥 3w
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen I am sorry - I do become intense on this topic. It is one of High emotions. But I absolutely honor and respect the sacrifices made by our soldiers and their families. 3w
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen one of my first pen pals was from Israel. We lost touch during her turn serving in the military. I have wondered what it looks like for a nation with mandatory service. 3w
Cinfhen It‘s a strange concept. We are currently living here as temporary residents ~ we have not become citizens so my son who is turning 18 in November does not have to serve. I can tell u it‘s complicated because as much as I don‘t want to have a child in the military, I feel a little guilty that my friends children are all serving and risking their lives daily and I sort of get a free pass. While most US kids are thinking of colleges kids here 👇🏼 3w
Cinfhen Are competing/ worrying about what units they will be assigned. It‘s mandatory for all kids 18 / male & female. Its huge amount of pressure on the kids to be placed in certain units. 3w
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen I can appreciate the conflict and appreciate you sharing those thoughts. As an aside I wish I had the strength and skill for Krav maga 3w
Cinfhen Yes! Krav Maga is definitely kick ass!!!! 3w

My first #LMPBC done! It was an awesome group to be in. I enjoyed this book very much. It was sad, full of damaged but very likable characters. Pain, hope, redemption. TW for alcoholism. It gave me a Forrest Gump Vibe and Station Elevenish vibe (although I would not consider this a favorite), but it took place over about a week. @Avanders I will try to mail Wed.

Gissy My answer will be tricky: 1) backpack (inside I will have money, the essential personal care products, some basic medications, a camera, phone, headphones, a journal with a pencil, a watch, some extra clothing); 2. Comfy clothing appropriate to the place I will go 3. Some snacks. Books? I hope I can find beautiful and amazing books where I'm going. 😜 3w

Why yes a reading essential kit was included! @WanderingBookaneer thought of everything! #summersantagoespostal #summersolsticegoespostal

WanderingBookaneer I couldn‘t help myself with this kit. It seemed so precious. 4w
Chrissyreadit @WanderingBookaneer this really is! My son and I were joking all week about earplugs- he came with me to intensive and I needed quiet while doing homework. 4w
tracey38 Love this idea! 4w

Nope- not done! This stalker extraordinaire fed my soul with socks, pencils, a sign with a relevant wording, journal, bookmark, bookplates and a kit I will open and share! @WanderingBookaneer I truly do not have the words! I wish I could hug you.... and take you to dinner (I would include your incredible significant other- @BookishMarginalia )#summersantagoespostal #summersolsticegoespostal

WanderingBookaneer I did A LOT of stalking. I saw that you had participated in the self care swap and had to get the sign. I also went to a particular local store to get the socks. 4w
Chrissyreadit @WanderingBookaneer I love the sign so much!!! And the socks are hysterical. I may wear them all Winter too! 4w

I am ready for a lazy day of swimming too! @WanderingBookaneer has literally thought of everything to promote summer fun! Also I lost my portable charger this week! I can‘t believe you sent one!!!!!!😍🙌👏🙌👏#summersantagoespostal #summersolsticegoespostal

WanderingBookaneer Serendipity about the phone charger. I just thought it was cute! 4w
Chrissyreadit @WanderingBookaneer it‘s so funny because I bought a tiny pool I could just sit in with a cold drink- and the leaf will be perfect and hysterical. The phone charger really was serendipity. 4w

@WanderingBookaneer this will all come in handy Tuesday for a picnic plan! I am taking my daughter, her girlfriend, and a best friend to see Pat Benetar, Melissa Etheridge and Liz Phair at the wolf trap. I can‘t wait to use it all! #summersantagoespostal #summersolsticegoespostal

WanderingBookaneer That lineup sounds fantastic! I hope you enjoy these trinkets. 4w

squirrelbrain Wow, amazing! ❤️ 4w
Avanders Holy smokes!! 🤭♥️♥️ 4w
Chrissyreadit @WanderingBookaneer I have not read any of them- and am looking forward to it! Fair warning though- I am in grad school for my counseling license and am such a slow reader these days. I am going to use my bookplates to remind me who books are from so will let you know for sure. Gulp- I may be applying for a doctoral program next year so school will drag on.... 4w
Chrissyreadit @Avanders @squirrelbrain @TrishB FOR REAL ❤️🙌❤️🙌❤️🙌❤️ 4w
WanderingBookaneer Best of luck in school! There is no hurry. I have loads of books from previous swaps I‘ve yet to read. 4w

I finally managed to walk over a mile for the past 5 days. Have not had a lot of reading this week due to school work, but I know I read 5 books- I need to check in case it‘s six. So close, but possibly not close enough. Thank you @wanderinglynn for this amazing experience ❤️❤️❤️#bookfitnesschallenge

Turns out Lynchburg has an excellent bookstore. Totally surprised. And happy. Counseling intensives are hard work. Bookstore breaks =self care.

jessinikkip That place is an hour and half from me, I keep hearing good things but haven't had a chance to visit. 1mo
BethM They are! Keep on keeping on! 1mo
Chrissyreadit @jessinikkip totally take the trip. It is very worth it. I would def drive that far. It‘s about three hours from where I live so I‘m sad I don‘t have more opportunity. 1mo
Crazeedi I love finding bookstores! 1mo

1,000 Vegan Recipes | Robin Robertson
post image

@readordierachel besides Oh She Glows, these are my favorites. But some of the recipes need to be adjusted in Monastery Soup and Winter Harvest. I do have two full shelves of vegan cookbooks, but I do not love Tempe and some recipes take more time. Robin Roberts book does not have pictures but it is excellent.

ravenlee I love Robin Robertson‘s books. (edited) 1mo
KathyWheeler I‘m not vegan, but I do like good vegan food and have several cookbooks. I‘ll have to try this 1000 recipes one. (edited) 1mo
Itchyfeetreader I can not cook from a recipe book without pics ! Makes me super self conscious!! 1mo

Chrissyreadit @Itchyfeetreader honestly, the recipes are so good!!! And I grew up cooking from handwritten recipes so it does not bother me. 1mo
Chrissyreadit @KathyWheeler when I do prepare food it is to feed people who are not vegan in a way they feel excited! There have been several recipes that are hits. Oh She Glows is still my biggest people pleaser cookbook though. 1mo
Chrissyreadit @ravenlee I only have this one but it is so good! 1mo
hermyknee Oh She Glows has great recipes! 1mo
Chrissyreadit @hermyknee I‘m pretty sure it is my favorite cookbook. It‘s getting tattered. 1mo
readordierachel Oooh, wonderful! I'm requesting some of these from the library ASAP. Thanks so much for the recs! 🤗 1mo
KathyWheeler @Chrissyreadit I‘ll have to check that one out too. 1mo
Chrissyreadit @readordierachel @KathyWheeler let me know what recipes you try. There are many I have not yet. Once we love something it tends to become a staple. 1mo
Chrissyreadit @readordierachel the Winter Harvest is not written as vegan but I have easily “veganized” the recipes I used with yummy success. It has several easy recipes I use for holidays consistently. 1mo
readordierachel Good to know! And will do 👍🏼 I'm hoping to find some recipes that can be staples in my house too. 1mo

True Story- I live in a state #wherethestreetshavenoname -and have had to follow many directions to homes solely by landmark. There are still areas that not only have no street names, but no internet or cell phone service. I‘m always nervous driving through them. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2013/01/where-the-streets-have-no-n...

BarbaraBB Oh I didn‘t know. It sounds kind of romantic though it probably isn‘t... 1mo
Chrissyreadit @BarbaraBB it‘s not. Often scary. Dangerous. The switch was called “changing to 911” because 911 literally could not reach people. 1mo
Cinfhen Oh wow!!! That sounds pretty rural. How do people send mail??? 1mo

Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen they use the post office. 1mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen when I moved here my father in law had an address that was rr... (rural route) and his name on the box at the end of the road. He lived 10 minutes from town. 1mo
Cinfhen No!!!how do you as a resident receive mail? How does someone address mail to somebody who doesn‘t have a street or an address?? 1mo
BarbaraBB But things are changing now I think, according to the article? 1mo
Chrissyreadit @BarbaraBB in some places. WV is a very quirky star. The elected leaders do not work for or represent the people. There are still pockets with places that do not have running water, street names, or bathrooms (use outhouses). No joke. It‘s very frustrating. 1mo
BarbaraBB I am really shocked. The richest country in the world! I‘m not American, so I obviously don‘t know much about it and I don‘t want to judge, but a lack of basic infrastructure? What are the elected leaders for if not representant the people? 1mo
Chrissyreadit @BarbaraBB corruption is real, and there are books written about it. This is only the tip of the iceberg. WV is at times it‘s own worst enemy. 1mo
BarbaraBB Thank you for enlighting me. I must read about it. Do you have a suggestion (preferably fiction) for a ‘beginner‘? 1mo
Chrissyreadit @BarbaraBB The Rocket Boys is not fiction but reads well- I think it describes some of this. The movie Winters Bone is based on a book- and takes place in Appalachia but not West Virginia. When I watched it I was shocked by the similarities though. It is brutal (warning). I‘m not sure of other books- I do not read a lot of WV fiction - I work here -5yrs as a teacher, 12 as early intervention, last 4 in a clinic that includes services for addiction 1mo
Chrissyreadit @BarbaraBB I will see what I can find if I search too. There are a lot of articles though, I think. 1mo
BarbaraBB Thank you so much! I‘m gonna check those books! 1mo
