Got the next #thebreakfastbookclub book from @chelreads
Thank you @corycatelyn for the magnet.

I think I need to be terrible and start being skipped. I haven't been able to read anything in months. @Librarybelle
You guys can finish reading the 100 if you'd like though and just return it later. Sorry I suck.

Also, did not know Litsy had a desktop site now, woot!

corycatelyn Glad you finally got it! @melyndarae 😊 6mo
Librarybelle Sorry to see you go from the rotation, but I can completely understand! If I‘m correct, you send to @MrsGreen ...am I right? If so, @chelreads , would you and @MrsGreen mind swapping contact info to keep the rotation going? 6mo
melyndarae @Librarybelle Thanks. My grandfather died in December and I just have struggled since and then a bunch of other things. I do send to Mrs Green. As soon as I am able, I'm going to send her the 3 books I have. I completely missed the April deadline and didn't realize. I think I sent her 2 last time too. So I don't know where they're supposed to be at in the rotation. 6mo

Librarybelle So sorry to hear! ❤️ 6mo

melyndarae Ok, and I'll get all the books I have to her as soon as I can. 6mo

I'm Frustrated | Elizabeth Crary

Frustrating when people don't follow through. For #lmpbc my book never made it past the first person. Worst part is, I sent gifts for them and the other two people with the book. Now this person wont even reply to texts after saying they'd send it multiple times and not doing it.

tracey38 I'm sorry. That has to be incredibly frustrating. 1y
suvata All these exchanges have one thing in common — they all rely on trust. We can only hope that those who sign up are trustworthy. I guess I expected more from “literature lovers”. I don‘t know why. 1y

I hit 500 followers and didn't even realize! I may need to plan #giveaway soon. I've been seriously disappointed in my lack of reading that past few months. Hopefully I can get back on track. Classes start soon though and I think I'm in for a rough semester.

Also, I received my #postlit package from you the other day @StellarDoc

StellarDoc Oh, good! I wondered how long it would take via USPS. 1y
melyndarae @StellarDoc I know when I send it's only like 2 days. 1y

melyndarae @Traci1 I wasn't thinking how big an investment I was getting into with The Walking Dead volumes. I kind of wish I'd done the compendiums but then I'd have to wait even longer between. I've already had stuffed ruined just waiting for the next volume lol. I haven't finished vol. 28 yet. 2y
melyndarae Oh and thanks! I've misplaced a bunch over the years. Plus I have some unwanteds in a tub that I'll probably donate to the library. 2y
Traci1 Idk if it costs more, but I like what you have more than the compendiums. I've read a couple that way checking them out from the library. And maybe it's because they were library books and a bit sticky (what are people doing when they read library books?!?), but they just don't feel right. They're very cumbersome. 2y
melyndarae @Traci1 Eww. Lol. And yea that's true. It is definitely less cumbersome. It's just a bummer to finish and have to wait 6 months. I think I need to reread. I love matching up or using it to speculate about the show. 2y
Traci1 Yeah the waiting stinks. I have bought a few of the individual issues, but I don't get by enough to get them usually, so the trade graphic works well enough. And Hoopla has been good about having them right after they come out, so it works. I'd rather have the physical copy than borrow the e-copy, but it's free so I can't complain...too much. 2y
melyndarae @Traci1 Yea I bought 2 on kindle then it bothered me I didn't have a complete set lol. So my husband bought them for me. Yea free is nice lol. 2y
RainyDayReading My Harry Potter shelf is decidedly pathetic 😅 I really need to up my Harry Potter collecting. 2y
melyndarae @RainyDayReading Mine just got some additions thanks to some swaps. Plus I have 4 funkos but I leave them in the box. But I feel I also need to up my collecting lol. 2y

I couldn't find a picture to fit what makes me happy. Sticking with the theme... I'm an accounting student. When I'm doing homework and see those balances match, I'm like a kid on Christmas. Lol. I love my future career.

britt_brooke I love chipotle! 2y
melyndarae @britt_brooke When I was working I had it for lunch at least once a week. Lol. 2y
britt_brooke @melyndarae We don‘t have one in my little Nashville suburb and I miss it! The nearest one is about 45 minutes away. I‘m craving it so bad now! 😆 2y
melyndarae @britt_brooke Oh that's terrible! Lol. Ours is less than a mile but my husband doesn't like it. So I don't get it as much as I'd like. Lol. 2y

SilversReviews Three book clubs. I used to be in more than one, but got to be too much. Thanks for playing. 2y
melyndarae @SilversReviews Yea I don't know what I was thinking Haha. One of them is only 4 people though so it's nice and short. And thankfully the ship dates vary enough that I gave time to read. 2y
SilversReviews @melyndarae Sounds like it works for you. :) That‘s all that matters. 2y
