This probably isn‘t a book I would have chosen for myself, but that‘s part of why I love swaps, book clubs and Litsy in general. I found all but one of the characters to be pretty likable and liked how it all came together in the end but wasn‘t predictable. #lmpbc @vonnie862 @suvata @Bookwormjillk

Sunday goals include finishing the last 80 or so pages of America for Beginners by Leah Franqui and starting The Measure by Nikki Erlick. I‘m mostly sharing this picture because I wanted to show you all my new bookish mug. This is the first one I‘ve found without going online. Now I “need” to find more. 🥰

Many of the books I read make me dream of going to well-known places. This book has me thinking seriously about planning a trip to Corning, NY to visit The Corning Museum of Glass. This floor to ceiling sculpture stands in their visitors center. What random places have books made you want to visit?

ChaoticMissAdventures This piece looks like a Chihuly? Seattle has a fantastic museum of his work I always find it amazing to visit.

This has been on and off of my TBR since it came out. Hubby promised to buy me a book since he needed to pick up one while I was at work. I was able to convince him to wait, but he kept his promise of buying the book. 2 trusted bookish friends have recently said it was better than All the Light We Cannot see, so I decided to see for myself. ☁️

I‘ve reopened a StoryGraph account under the username smalldog_bigbooks19 which I really should change my Litsy username to as well, since we just have the one small dog now and I still love big books. Happy new year from said small dog, 17 year old Carla. This is the guilt trip I get when I pick up a book or my phone instead of giving her attention. She‘s now napping in front of the heater. All‘s well in her world. Please follow me on StoryGraph!

Just like I do for most special occasions (and sometimes just because) the only Christmas gift I gave my 4 year old nephew was a new book. As a person with an outwardly visible physical disability, I love sharing books with him that feature a person with a disability where the story isn‘t completely based around the person‘s disability. This was a very cute one. Merry Christmas everybody. 🥰

I loved Harry Potter when I was 12, but tried rereading it recently and just couldn‘t. I‘ve decided to check out The Magicians, just because I‘m so happy my husband finally chose a book for me. 🪄

My mom is absolutely where I got my love of books and one of my most dependable sources of good book recommendations (when I can keep her from giving away the end of the story). I already knew about Jolabokaflod and love the idea of starting that tradition together.

Today has been a good day. I found a new stylist I can trust with my wild curls. The salon just happened to be next to the cutest, tiniest used bookstore I‘ve ever seen so of course I had to check it out and buy the first 3 books in this haul. And of course I had to stop on my way home and buy 2 more books at my usual spot. It‘s been a bit of an expensive day, but I don‘t regret any part of it.

Does anyone else feel compelled to buy certain books when you come across them, specifically because you remember seeing someone significant to you reading it years ago? I swear I remember seeing my mom read this when I was a fairly young child. I didn‘t even know what it was about until I found it on Pongo Books about a month ago, but I recognized the cover immediately when I saw it.

@Bookwormjillk @suvata @vonnie862 #LitsyMarkUpPostalSwap This is a cute story and, as you can see by all of those paper clips, I did have a lot to say as I read it. Maybe it‘s because I‘m also reading and much more interested in Fairy Tale by Stephen King, but I felt myself getting bored several times with this one. Revisiting characters from Waxman‘s other books was fun. This one was just ok.

suvata I haven‘t read any of her books, so I‘m not familiar with any of the characters. Maybe that‘s a plus. 3mo
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @suvata they‘re all likable people that I wouldn‘t mind hanging out with. This story just wasn‘t anything special in my own opinion. The Bookish Life of Nina Hill sat on my shelf for months and I ended up loving it. 3mo
suvata @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 it happens…sometimes the time is just perfect for a certain book 3mo
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 I‘m sorry to be sending you a book with a so-so review. Hopefully the rest of you will enjoy it more. Maybe it would‘ve been different if I wasn‘t also sucked into another book. 3mo

LitStephanie @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 agreed. I am currently working on my compulsion to finish any book I start, which probably comes from discipline instilled in college. I have probably bailed on more books in the past year than in the last 10 years combined. Baby steps, ha! 3mo

If you had told me just a few years ago that I‘d become a big #StephenKing fan, I would never have believed you. Eye of The Dragon is the only one of his books that I‘ve DNF‘d and I assumed just by the title that this one would be similar. I assumed wrong and in this case I‘m perfectly fine with that. Also, I‘ll be heartbroken if anything happens to the dog. The fact that there‘s a dog in the story is part of what drew me in.

My mom is terrible at “summarizing” books she suggests. If she can manage to not give away the ending, I can usually guess just using the information she gives me. She did well enough on this story to actually pique my interest and even inspire a Google search to see if the story is based on real people. I also just noticed the review from the author of Water for Elephants and I loved that book.

I have no idea how to plan a swap, but I have an idea. Each participant would start with book 1 of a series on their TBR list, share their thoughts as they read it, then pass it to the next participant. By the end, each participant has read book 1 of a few different series and decides if they want to continue on their own. Inspired by a swap I did with @suvata @Jerdencon and @IndoorDame . I‘d love help with the planning if anyone is interested.

IndoorDame I‘ve never planned a swap so I can‘t offer advice, but I know some of the veteran swap hosts will be happy to. Alternatively, since I think you‘re referring to one of our #lmpbc rounds, if you want to start small you could always propose first in series as a category for the next round of #lmpbc 5mo
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @IndoorDame waiting and being involved with another round of #lmpbc is also an option. I‘m not sure when @suvata plans to start another round. I also like the idea of having a separate swap just for the series, and therefore possibly being able to start it sooner, but maybe the idea is too similar? 🤷‍♀️ 5mo
IndoorDame @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 I think round 16 starts in November, so depending on how much time you wanted to plan you could definitely start up a new swap mid round. And I don‘t necessarily think it‘s too similar, though @suvata may have more thoughts on that. If you have specific questions about swaps I know @wanderinglynn and @LibrarianRyan are organizing some of the big fall swaps going on now. 5mo

wanderinglynn What you‘ve described is more a postal book club like #lmpbc. A swap is where you‘re matched with someone & you send them books, candy, bookish items (bookmarks, socks, mugs) based on the swap‘s theme. You send a box to your match & you receives box from the one who has your name. There‘s a designated open date for everyone to open their boxes & post a photo of what you received from your match. 5mo
wanderinglynn A swap is a one & done event (one package sent, one packaged received) vs a book club where the book travels and ultimately comes back to the originator. I‘m happy to discuss more about swaps. You could do a swap that has the theme of series (I.e., the books people send are the start of a series). There are all sorts of swap themes. 5mo
LibrarianRyan @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @indoordame I agree with @wanderinglynn. You are proposing a type of #travelingbook. I have done at least 2 of these and never got the book back. Normally one person decides the book (usually a first in a series) marks it up and sends it to the next person. This usually lasts a year so you have 12 participants. Sometimes you have multiple books going, sometimes not. depends. I enjoyed these, but I do know that I, and ⬇ 5mo
LibrarianRyan a few others who did this at the start of litsy never got our books bad. The books I did not get back (even after asking multiple times) were The Last Magician, Tristan Strong, and I don't remember the 3rd. Being that these are so big it is really easy for people to fall behind. It is what makes #LMPBC nice. It is groups of 4. Only a 4 month commitment. Swaps are usually one and done. the others are book clubs. I don't know who is ⬇
5mo
LibrarianRyan @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 is involved, but check out the #coffeebeanbookclub. They have been going on strong, they send the book and coffee. That is all I know. You might find a member and ask how they run things. That may be more what you are looking for. 5mo
BethM @Mommamanzi runs #coffeebeanbookclub and it‘s no small feat! Ours is cozy themed. One cozy (pre selected) and coffee every month. Occasionally we hit snags but everyone gets their book back, largely bc of how Nicole runs it and the rules she keeps. 5mo

I finished it less than 30 minutes ago and book hangover is already picking in. This isn‘t one I would have chosen if it hadn‘t been sort of chosen for me as part of this swap, but I really enjoyed it. Now it‘s time for a break from historical fiction for a while. @suvata @Jerdencon @IndoorDame

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @suvata I agree! I enjoyed all 4 of the books we read in this swap, with the exception of the one I was originally going to contribute. I‘ve bought new books since we started the swap and it should be interesting to choose whatever I want off of my shelf again.

suvata @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 Yes, I think she is a wonderful author. And I know what you mean about historical fiction. I am very burned out on World War II books. Lol 8mo

Thought all of you word nerds would appreciate this. The tagged book was the first I could think of that sounded appropriate. 😄

I‘ve been wanting to get a Wonder Woman tattoo and a literary tattoo for a long time. This image has me playing with the idea of blending the two into one tattoo 🤩 Tagged is the first Wonder Woman comic @GrizzVarela bought me. 100+ pages and I read it in one sitting.

LiteraryinLawrence That would be such a cool tattoo! 9mo

The call letting me know this book was available to pick up, came while I was in a daily morning meeting at work. It took everything in me to focus on what my manager was saying about daily goals and other only somewhat important announcements, then I had to get through my whole work day before the book could be picked up! Being an adult is hard sometimes. 🙄

I receive an average of 2-3 books in the mail every month. Book of the Month is the one I look forward to the most. I‘m looking forward to reading this, and have promised a Peter Pan obsessed family member that I‘d pass it on to her as soon as I finish it. 🧚‍♀️

Jerdencon @IndoorDame just wondering if you mailed my book yet this month - just wanted to make sure it wasn‘t lost somewhere 9mo
IndoorDame @Jerdencon I‘m actually mailing it today. I‘m SO sorry it‘s late. I was ill last month and kept hoping I‘d get to finish it before I sent it out, but it‘s not going to happen and I want the cycle to continue relatively unbroken, so hopefully it‘ll be at yours in a few days. 9mo
Jerdencon No worries - if you want to try to finish it - im a pretty quick reader as long as I have 5 days or so. I hope you are feeling better! 🤗 @IndoorDame (edited) 9mo
IndoorDame @Jerdencon thank you 🙏 that totally makes me feel better about being so late! But I‘m just going to send this one on and concentrate on reading this month‘s. I have so much to catch up on after being sick for so long. Luckily I am on the mend though! 9mo
