The Eyes of the Dragon | Stephen King

For now I‘m avoiding any of Stephen King‘s pandemic-related books. This one will hopefully make this 5 day quarantine a little more tolerable. 24hrs in and I‘m starting to lose it. Thanks Covid. 🙄 🐉 📖

Gift from the Sea | Anne Morrow Lindbergh
post image

When we got married 3 years ago today, we got all sorts of interesting marriage advice. My advice to you unmarried littens is to marry someone who won‘t take it personally when you‘d rather focus on your book than on them. My other advice is to go follow my hubby Matthew, @GrizzVarela on the account he started after our date tonight. The tagged book is one we got inspiration from, in writing our personalized vows.

Eggs Great photo❣️ 6d
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @Eggs thank you! It‘s one of my (many) favorites from that day. I still love looking at our wedding and even engagement photos every once in a while. 🥰 6d

ChaoticMissAdventures Happy anniversary!! Great advice, there was just an article on Reddit where a woman's new partner threw away all their books because they weren't allowing her to focus on him and the horror I felt for her!! So glad you found a happy reading friendly partner. ❤️ 6d
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @ChaoticMissAdventures 🤯 There would definitely be hell to pay if anyone tried trashing my books for any reason. @GrizzVarela is a book lover as well. He just doesn‘t have as much free time as he‘d like to read so he often goes for audiobooks instead. (edited) 6d

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @TheAromaofBooks the line (which is actually more of a paragraph) starts with “It is an impossibility to love a person in the same way, every day. Day in and day out. It is a lie to even pretend to” and ends with something about two people dancing side by side but as individuals in the same performance. We really should go back and read it again. We both loved it as soon as we saw it. 5d
TheAromaofBooks Yes!! I think that is the same section where she talks about how we have so little faith in the ebb and flow - the natural pattern of even the deepest relationship is not always going to be at the high tide mark of passion at every moment of every day, yet we often trick ourselves into thinking that if we ebb from that mark in even the slightest, it means the entire relationship is on its way to failure, instead of embracing the other moments ⬇ 5d
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) in a relationship's cycle, that are just as valid and important in their own way, trusting that the constancy of the relationship is actually in its tidal movements. I also loved her sections about the importance of solitude and making time for quiet and creativity - and this was before even more technology came to take our time!! 5d
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 Yep! That‘s the one 🥰 5d

Only book lovers can really appreciate how exciting this sight is. My new book fits easily all the way inside my new purse, without concerns about damaging the book or anything else in the purse. I broke the zipper on a brand new purse, trying to cram a book into it a few months ago. 🤦‍♀️ This purse is otherwise much larger than I really need, but this discovery makes me want to keep using the purse anyway. 📚 🤓 👜 🥰

I love spotting random number sequences! I just realized my litfluence is exactly 3,456 today. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that your litfluence seems to grow faster, the longer you have the app? It seemed like the first 1,000 or so took forever. Now the number seems to grow a little every few days.

Wait for Dark | Kay Hooper

Mystery is one genre of books I‘ve always struggled with. I love a good detective/crime drama on Netflix, but I have a harder time finding books that don‘t feel predictable and get boring quickly. I haven‘t started this book yet, but it will be my next attempt. I‘m in desperate need of a book I can‘t put down! What other mystery authors can you all suggest?

Ruthiella I am that way about romance and some hard sci-fi: I don‘t like it generally in books but enjoy it on the screen. I recommend the Sue Grafton Alphabet mysteries to try. They are pretty snappy. 1mo

Hi @wen4blu Here‘s confirmation information for the book and chocolates swap with the name I can‘t spell 🤣 As you can see, the book and chocolate will be delivered separately. I‘m not sure why or how to change that. Just wanted to give you a heads up. @MaleficentBookDragon thanks for putting this swap together. I think it‘s the same one I joined last Christmas and really loved it. 📚🍫🎄🥰

I strongly disagree with the choices of casting for the movie. Robert Pattinson and Reece Witherspoon should not play the main love interests in this story. That being said, I really enjoyed this revisiting of a book I loved in high school.

Major score from the Little Free Library near home. I‘ve formed a habit of checking it every day on my way home from work. Most of the time I‘m able to walk away empty handed. This needed to come home with me. I haven‘t spotted a copyright date on it, but it‘s definitely old and well-loved. 👯‍♀️😍

@LauraBeth We finally made it to the post office to pick this up. I started the other puzzle, using my puzzle board on the floor. Just before I took this picture, my dog got startled and ran over that puzzle. All of the pieces are in tact, but it‘s mostly a start over. 🤦‍♀️ Maybe I should take the hint, start this one instead, and not leave it on the floor this time! I tagged the first story I spotted in this picture. @rather_be_reading

After reading and absolutely loving The Book of Longings, I‘ve decided to delve into other books by Sue Monk Kidd. The tagged book is one I read long ago and loved. I‘m not usually one to reread books. Now I‘m buying and rereading books, and dreaming of completely filling my bookshelves. My current read is also one I read long ago and loved. I blame (and thank) Litsy for this new habit. 🤣🥰📚

Ruthiella I don‘t reread often but when I do, it‘s usually interesting since I change as a reader and sometimes notice different things the second time around. 3mo

Can someone teach me how to blur out the rest of a page, so I can highlight a quote? The paragraph that starts with “Sometimes I think that if I had to choose between an ear of corn or making love to a woman, I‘d choose the corn.” is what I wanted to highlight. After about a half hour of fussing with different settings on my phone, I gave up and I‘m posting a pic of the whole page. 🤦‍♀️

Crazeedi There should be a button on bottom of pic before posting that is a pen of any color, you should be able to use to blur the lines you want. Or use pic collage app that you can do the same 3mo
rwmg When you add a picture to a post, you will see controls at the bottom. The far right one (you may have to scroll over) is marked 'focus'. Tap that and then use 'linear'. That is how I blur part of the picture. 3mo

The bookmark I‘ve been using for The Book of Longings was brand new and in perfect condition when I started the book. I‘m now in the last 50 pages or so and it‘s well…not. That being said, it was time for some new ones that will hopefully last through more than one book. These are locally made, which made them even more appealing to me, using strips of brightly colored fabric laminated to make them a little more durable 😍

Soubhiville They‘re fun and festive 😊 3mo

These are the only souvenirs I‘ve purchased on this trip so far. Not sorry at all. I loved The Bookish Life of Nina Hill and have been searching for more books by Abi Waxman.

It‘s not something I do often, but I‘m excited about this one 😊

I‘ve read four chapters since yesterday, so I‘m obviously enjoying Frankenstein much more than I have in my previous attempts to read it. I have noticed one recurring thing that‘s started to get on my nerves. Mary Shelley seems to have really liked the word “ardour”. I‘m enjoying it for the fact that it‘s not a word I knew before reading this book, but there are so many other words that mean “passion/enthusiasm/focus/hard work”.

Thank you so much @Lovesbooks87 . The decision of what to read next just got a little harder! This, and so many other Jodi Picoult books, are so far outside of what I usually read which is exactly why I‘m excited to read it. 😊

kbibliophilific She‘s amazing!!! I love every single book that I‘ve read from her. Added this one! Thank you. 5mo

Thank you so much to @Mynameisacolour for this sweet early birthday surprise! I was expecting a book from the trade, which also came today just adding to the fun, but didn‘t recall trading anything else. It crossed my mind that this might be a birthday surprise but, just in case it was another trade book, I decided to open it so I could promptly send out a thank you so much 🥰

Mynameisacolour Yay!🎉 You're welcome, Happy early birthday😁 5mo

My birthday is coming up on September 2nd, and I‘m strongly considering getting a tattoo referencing my favorite children‘s book (or a few other things). I found this pic online and love it. Hubby doesn‘t like it, but he also doesn‘t love this book as much as I do. What do you all think? I‘m a bit sad we can‘t comment with pics, because I‘d love to see everyone‘s literary tattoos.
