1– when I worked at a children‘s shelter, one of the teens I was supervising got into the medication box before my shift started. The shifts switched, & I came on duty only to find that he‘d overdosed. I drove him to the hospital. It‘s been 25 years, & I still think about him and hope he‘s okay.

2– working from home, with the confidence & drive to support myself creatively.

3– No, but I did that career for a while & decided it wasn‘t for me.

Smrloomis That would be super scary 💕 Hope he‘s a middle-aged adult now… 2h

For #HyggeHour and #LitSolace, here are pics of the 2 tables next to me. I took the daytime pic earlier today. It‘s dim there after dark, so you get a well lit pic instead. The other pic is of my poetry gargoyle. He reads and writes with me. Something about his stare motivates me. I‘m not sure why. I had mint gluten free Oreos as a snack along with a can of seltzer water. Happy Sunday everyone! 📚🌙🤍✨

This book casts a pretty wide net. As such, it offers bite-sized pieces of ideas rather than going in depth into any of them. I suppose this could be used to help you brainstorm a path forward or maybe help you figure out where to focus further, but I don‘t think it‘s a good standalone book. It is fairly easy to follow. It‘s set up as a series of short chapters. Each chapter is a different self care idea. The short chapters are loosely grouped ⬇️

slategreyskies (Cont.) into larger chunks of similarly themed areas (like one chunk on mental health and one on physical health, that sort of thing). I‘m glad I read it, but it feels like it was just a taster book, and I feel like there must be so much more information out there than what‘s included here. ⭐️⭐️⭐️!! 3d

For those of you who were curious, here is a grid of the 16 books that I‘m part of the way through right now. 3 of them are over 1,000 pages, so there‘s no way I can bang these out in a few weeks, but maybe if I focus on them, I could get through them by the end of the year. If this was your currently reading list, how would you tackle it? Shorter ones first to get them out of the way? Which of these have you read and really loved? #MountTBR

RaeLovesToRead None. BUT! I've got the Eighth something on my TBR and Acotar too. I am sat here in an Acotar jumper, but in my defence it is comfy and purple. People often tell me they love my jumper and it makes me feel like a fraud. Must. Read. Acotar. 4d
slategreyskies @RaeLovesToRead I know what you mean. I started ACOTAR last year or the year before but only made it through the first book. Then, I read the Crescent City trilogy this year, loved it & decided I‘d finally read ACOTAR. I reread the 1st book, because I couldn‘t remember anything about it & decided I‘d plow through them all in 1 ACOTAR marathon of sorts. That‘s cool about the jumper. Comfy & purple would be good enough for me too! 💜📚✨ 4d
RaeLovesToRead I mean... I also have a blue one 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ just assuming I'm gonna love it lol 4d

Clare-Dragonfly If it were my list, I‘d probably finish the ADHD book first in hopes of it making me feel better about having so many books on the go at once 😂 4d
slategreyskies @RaeLovesToRead I think you probably will. The main complaint I‘ve heard about it is that some people are bothered by the sex scenes. They didn‘t bother me, but they are open door. lol 3d
slategreyskies @Clare-Dragonfly ah, that‘s a good approach! I just may do that. Someone here on Litsy asked me for my opinion of that one, but I haven‘t replied yet, since I wanted to finish the book first. Maybe I‘ll tackle it today. Thanks! 📚♥️ 3d

How is it possible that the number is so high? For what it‘s worth, I‘m not actively reading all of these. It‘s just that I‘m stuck somewhere in the middle of them and am determined that they won‘t be a DNF or a bail. I mean, I was enjoying them. I just haven‘t picked them up in a while. I think I‘ll try to get that number down to 10 by the end of June. We‘ll see how that goes. #ReaderProblems #LongLiveTheTBR #TheStruggleIsReal

Bookwomble @quietlycuriouskate @slategreyskies Me, too! I've been right up there as well, and actively trying to reduce my number of CRs. Just bailed on one I realised I wasn't into, but not yet ready to DNF any others! I'm down to 12 CRs now. 4d

slategreyskies @quietlycuriouskate My non-reader friends don‘t get it, but it really is a thing for me. I have a stack of books next to where I sit in the living room. The stack starts on the floor, but it‘s so high I could put a coaster on top and have a place for my mug. 🤣 3d
slategreyskies @Bookwomble yes! I get this! Maybe, as I‘m actively working my way through the list, I‘ll find one I‘m not into that I can DNF as well. I suppose that it doesn‘t much matter how they make their way off my CR list… just that they do! 3d

I went to four different Little Free Libraries today and then also to my local library. The Wally Lamb is from a LFL, and the Montell is the hold I picked up at the library. I‘m excited to read both. I read She‘s Come Undone shortly after it came out, and I remember liking it, but it‘s been so many years, and I don‘t remember much about it.

I wasn‘t sure whether to give this a so-so or a pan. In the end, I‘ve decided to go with a pan. I felt like there were way too many instances where the author‘s opinions were glaringly visible, so much so that the characters themselves disappeared behind the author. I really just did not enjoy the way this book was written, and I feel like it was unfair to these women to be represented in the book this way. ⭐️⭐️!

The sticker pack I ordered came in the mail today, so even though my clear plastic case for my Kindle hasn‘t arrived yet, I‘ve decided on the placement of the stickers once it arrives. I‘m going to just arrange them on my Kindle without sticking them in place, using the clear case on top to hold them down. That way, they‘re repositional, so I can change my mind any time. I‘m super excited! It‘s gonna make me smile every time I pick it up. 😊📚💕

slategreyskies To add to my above comment, I didn‘t add any of my books read to more than one category. I could have, but I chose not to. So, I read several NF books that were also library books, but I chose to count them as library books rather than NF. 2w

1. A book recommendation with some very helpful information in it, because let‘s face it: if there‘s an herbal route I can go instead of starting on a high risk medication, I‘d much rather go herbal.

2. Putting together another batch of earrings to sell, as I‘ve sold through most of my stock.

3. Learning to read with a Kipper deck.

4. My partner sent me this photo of one of the irises in our yard.

5. My son completed his geometry class.⬇️

I cannot recommend this book enough. While there are lots of books about the healing properties of herbs, this one stands out above the rest. Not only is the information within backed up with lists of scientific journals, but the author also gives you reasons why the supplements work, what they shift in the body in order to treat imbalances. The author gives possible side effects, so you can make an educated choice. They also teach you ⬇️

slategreyskies (Cont.) how to read labels to accurately choose the correct supplements, AND they also give you recommended dosages according to studies that have been done. This book is a game changer. I‘m so thankful that my friend lent me her copy of it, as I‘m not sure I‘d have come across it on my own. I purchased a copy for myself, because it is just that good. Highly recommended! 10⭐️!! 2w

Unless I really step up my game, I‘m not gonna come even close to finishing this in 2024, but it makes me laugh, so it‘s a win, right? To add to that, it‘s been 2 weeks, and I‘m actually still working on it, which is longer than I work on some challenges. Fun times! 📚📚📚

I‘m debating whether or not to add the books I read in the first 3 months of the year, since it‘s a year long challenge. That would boost my numbers.

I checked this series out from the graphic novel section of the library today. Honestly, I mostly just chose it because the library had the entire series (3 books) available to check out in one go. I got them for my 16 year old son. I think, if I hit on the right books or the right genre, then he‘ll end up being a reader. I‘ve just been striking out on most of the ones I‘ve chosen for him so far. However, today I caught him in his room reading! ⬇️

How is it that I‘ve gotten this far in my life without knowing this? I don‘t remember anyone ever telling me this. It feels like this secret truth that is so important that everyone should know it. It feels life-changing. If I focus on effort rather than outcome, maybe all the blockages that I‘ve been struggling with for decades will melt away. Suddenly, it doesn‘t matter if I succeed or not. It matters that I put in the effort, that I try.

CoffeeK8 Do you find this book overall helpful. I‘m newly diagnosed (but in my 40s) and trying to find some good reads 2w
Velvetfur Oh this is great, it sounds so simple but we never think of looking at things in this way by ourselves do we? I'm going to write this out and stick it on my noticeboard so I can see it all the time until it gets stuck in my brain and becomes an automatic thought. Thank you for sharing this xx 2w

1. Yes. When I was in my early 20s, I stopped into a HS library I‘d never been to before. My university was offering one of its Spanish classes at the HS, and it was a required class for me and also the only one that wasn‘t already full. When I walked in, the librarian greeted me by name, and she was so excited to see me. It ended up that she was the librarian at the library I went to when I was a little girl, and she remembered me years later. ⬇️

slategreyskies (Cont.) That interaction with her has meant so much to me. To think that someone was looking out for me and that I mattered to them so much that they remembered me years later? That was priceless. I know I‘ll never forget it. (edited) 2w
slategreyskies 2. I get most of my books from either the Kindle store or the library. It‘s uncommon for me to purchase a hard copy of a book unless it‘s a reference book or a NF book that I‘ll reread. Fiction is almost always either on my Kindle or from the library (or both). I have an Audible membership, but I find that I don‘t reach for audiobooks very often. 2w

My only dilemma this morning is which book to read first, since I‘ve got several that I‘ve checked out from the library, and I don‘t think I‘ll be able to finish them all before I need to return them.

If I can‘t decide, I‘ll just continue with the third book in this series. I‘m trying to get through as many of them as I can before they are removed from Audible‘s free section at the end of the month.

slategreyskies @Chrissyreadit I‘m new to it myself. I‘ve had a Lenormand deck for a little while, but I ended up purchasing both a Lenormand and a Kipper by Marchetti. The selling point for me was that the decks are supposed to be the same size and are able to be used together in the same reading. I actually shuffled the two decks together and have been using them like that. They are very slightly different sizes, but I can make it work. 2w
slategreyskies @Soscha they are quite different than tarot, and I don‘t understand them as well as tarot yet, but I‘m trying to learn. 2w
slategreyskies @Clare-Dragonfly yeah, they are new to me as well. I have a friend who uses the two decks together in readings, and she inspired me to give it a go. I don‘t understand the cards very well yet. I‘m very much still learning. 2w

I made it 85 pages in (48% of the way through), and I just couldn‘t make myself read any longer. I‘m apparently not the target audience for this book. It was so boring, and I didn‘t find the main character interesting at all. It was a slog, y‘all. Also, I thought her psychiatrist was irritating. I‘m glad to have this one off #MountTBR. #HailTheBail #DNF

I‘m currently working my way through this, but I‘m not sure I‘ll be able to get past the fact that she records her conversations. I mean, not only does she record her conversations with her psychiatrist, but she also records conversations she has at work, ones she had at a film group she went to, that sort of thing. It makes me really uncomfortable for some reason, so I may have to DNF it. I‘m gonna try for a little bit longer. One last chance.

What I‘ve come to learn about myself is that, no matter how good my intentions are, I rarely stick with a reading challenge that someone else sets for me. So, I‘ve created my own seven-layered challenge. It can be done over and over again. I can try to get all seven checked off in a day or in a week. Whatever feels right. It allows for mood reading and will also help me pick up different types of books in different formats. ⬇️

slategreyskies (Cont.) I created 2 new tags for me to use, which I‘m thrilled about as well. #diceydalliance is for when I use my set of dice to help me choose what or how much to read. #superseven is for when I tackle this list, either making progress on it or hitting all 7 goals. 3w

I know I like the idea of using dice, but I don‘t have the details worked out yet. 2w

Hooked_on_books I haven‘t read Jane Eyre yet either! And I actually started to maybe a year ago but it wasn‘t the right time so I put it back on my shelf after a chapter. 3w

This version of Lilac Wine is haunting. There used to be a YouTube video of the session if that‘s more your thing. Here‘s the Spotify link:

Suet624 I always forget that I really like Miley. Especially like her version of Nothing Else Matters. I‘ve done my share of screamsinging that song while driving. 3w
slategreyskies @TheBookHippie agreed. Love Nina! 🥰 3w
slategreyskies @Suet624 I can‘t remember if I know that one or not. I‘m bad at connecting song titles to the actual song in my head. I‘ll look it up. Thanks! I really like Miley as well. ♥️ 3w

I have a feeling this book is going to be very quotable for me. I‘ll try not to spam Litsy with all the passages I highlight! 🤣

I actually really like this idea. I like quizzes and questionnaires that go deep into a subject, and I kinda wish my therapist had offered me a long quiz too. It might have sped things along a bit, rather than what ended up being years of therapy. I think it may have helped target our approach a bit. Ah, hindsight.

This came in the mail today. I‘m excited, because I ordered two copies of it, so a friend of mine and I can work through it together. It‘s got good reviews on other sites, but I‘ll post a review here once I‘ve finished it. 📚 ✨

I have never actually read anything by Arthur C. Clarke. I remember, when I was a girl, hanging out in my dad‘s library and seeing Arthur C. Clarke books on his bookshelves, but I never read any of them. I‘ve never really been a sci-fi lover, but the fact that my dad loves him kinda makes me want to read one to see what I think. I do really love this quote that popped up on another site online. 📚 🚀 🪐 ✨
