1. I definitely do not have a green thumb, so I‘m much better off enjoying other people‘s gardens.
2. See #1.
3. The tagged book, along with The Secret Garden.

Thanks for the tag, @Ddzmini 😊🌸🌼💐

Ddzmini I don‘t have a green thumb either unless it‘s an outside plant with natures help 🤪 2d

Some recent #bookmail , including the latest #BetsyTacy Society newsletter. The tagged book was one I‘ve seen @LeahBergen and other Littens post about. But the one I‘m most excited about is Felicia, a children‘s book about a cat who turns into a little girl. I‘ve never seen a copy that wasn‘t priced at hundreds of dollars, so I was thrilled to find a copy on eBay for $13 (including postage! 😸)

Kathryn‘s favorite book is The Wizard of Oz, and her journey somewhat mirrors Dorothy‘s (although much grittier). I enjoyed spotting all the Oz references (both book and movie, although this novel takes place in 1935, before the movie was made. That explains the silver shoes instead of the Ruby Slippers, which were invented for Technicolor.)

CarolynM I'm sure she could! That is a fabulous edition of the book you have there, I love the ghostly Byron lurking over procedings🙂 6mo
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen Thanks for the warning! 6mo
quietjenn @rubyslippersreads @Ruthiella Kindle for me, too! I love the price and the instant gratification. And I do think Jocasta is the real star of the story and deserves so much more than Quentin. 6mo
Cathythoughts Oh dear , the fish flat … living over a fish shop could be very challenging! 6mo
batsy She definitely can do better! Justice for Jocasta 😆 6mo

My tentative #readathon plans. (@Read4life hope it‘s okay I “borrowed” your artwork. 😊) #NovelNovemberReadathon #33by33 Readathon #AnyWayYouReadathon BTW, I think Anne is really using her imagination on that Chronicles of Avonlea cover. 😂

Eggbeater Thanks for joining in! 6mo

No wonder I like the Creature so much—he loves to read! 😄 Happy Halloween! 🎃👻🍫

MatchlessMarie That‘s adorable!! I saw a meme the other day that has the creature from the black lagoon teaching Jason how to swim 😂 💀 7mo
LeahBergen Happy Halloween! 🎃🎃 7mo
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen I realized when setting this up that a disembodied brass hand is rather appropriate for Halloween. 😂🎃 7mo
