Re-reading S&S for the first time in about 20 years with the #Pemberlittens and it must be because I‘m older but I find Marianne to be pretty intolerable this time around…also enjoying making my BUJO spread on my IPAD using this template I bought from Etsy. Thanks for the idea @SeaToSkyes - I may be obsessed. This template is from HappyDownloads using GoodNotes and I love the possibilities 😊

SeaToSkyes Oooh, that is a pretty one! Now if I can just figure out how to do it myself! 😆😆 5d
StayCurious @SeaToSkyes yeah I tried lol, but I like having all the pretty stickers to work with (edited) 5d
SeaToSkyes @StayCurious there is a Youtuber that I got the idea from and watched their video for how they created one. It looks easy enough but I just haven't had the time to sit down and figure it out 5d

Ruthiella I‘m feeling that way about Marianne too! I first read it 25 years ago and loved her and hated seeing her spirit crushed. Now I‘m old and I don‘t even really relate to even Elinor. It‘s old Mrs. Jennings who now has my heart! 😅 5d
TheAromaofBooks @Ruthiella - Ignoring negativity in other people, being a jovial and welcoming hostess, trying to make sure everyone is getting along, and a housemate who has loads of dogs... I think I may have BECOME Mrs. Jennings! 😂 4d
Ruthiella @TheAromaofBooks 😂😂😂 Me too! 4d
rubyslippersreads I‘ve just started getting interested in digital planning. This is great! 3d

I‘m enjoying the book journal I started this year. It helps me keep track of everything I‘m currently reading as well since I‘m in the middle of 7 books to complete several reading challenge prompts. I like having a lot of options when deciding what to read but I try to make sure they aren‘t similar plots otherwise I get confused 😄

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks This looks cool!! ❤️📚 5d
SeaToSkyes What are you using? If you don't mind me asking 😊 5d
IndoorDame Looks beautiful! I‘m definitely coming round to buying an iPad 5d
See All 7 Comments
StayCurious @SeaToSkyes it‘s the GoodNotes app on my iPad 5d
StayCurious @IndoorDame honestly I love mine (I have a mini) and I use it for my kindle, Scribd, Kobo, Libby, GoodNotes, watching tv shows, everything 5d
SeaToSkyes @StayCurious I just downloaded that a few days ago, but haven't used it yet. I've been debating on trying to create my own pages or buying one already made from Etsy 5d
StayCurious @SeaToSkyes omg that‘s a great idea! 5d

Inspired by so many lovely Littens, in particular @Clwojick I decided to try my own Bujo spread - I used GoodNotes on my IPad and love that I can easily put in images and screen shots of the challenges and book covers. Here‘s hoping I keep up with it (which has been a problem with reading challenges in the past!)

I have decided to join in on the #pemberlittens reread of Sense and Sensibility. My edition, although not outwardly pretty, is beautiful inside with illustrations, essays, and a lot of helpful info about Jane‘s world. I‘m going to read the chapter a day along with the group but also read the extras in my edition. @BarkingMadRun

#lastfirst @BookNAround the last book I finished in 2021 was a book of holiday romance novellas named All I Want For Christmas Is You. It had some cute stories in it and I enjoyed it. My first book of 2022 is Golden Surrender by Heather Graham. This is one of her first books and was my #TBRDeckofcards pick @Clwojick

I‘m reading the tagged book and I‘m also going to start the Fables comic series which has a great Snow White character. Will also be watching some adaptations as well. Should be fun!

#TeamGameSleighers there are only 2 days left of this year‘s #WinterGames! The event ends Jan 1st at midnight. If you‘re planning a night in or your holiday plans got locked down 😟 you still have time to earn some points. You may have noticed we did not put up this week‘s team total - @Clwojick and I decided to wait and combine the final 2 weeks and do a big reveal! I can‘t wait to see where we‘re at! I‘ve had so much fun this year👇

StayCurious With you all! Don‘t forget there‘s still time to get in those entries for #xmastreecontest and #uglysweatercontest which will be judged next week. You‘ll have until Tuesday to get me your final points and the winner reveals will be made on Wednesday. 2w

Lynnsoprano I feel so bad that I have contributed so little. This month has been one crisis after another-none of them health-related, but things that have taken a toll on my mental health. I have read exactly nothing in the past two weeks. Trying to get past the mess and enjoy Christmas and our anniversary next week. Why does everything have to hit the fan this time of year? 4w
Crazeedi @Lynnsoprano Lynn my month has been exactly like yours, I have read one book. And everything kinda fell apart!! So don't feel bad!!! 4w
Lynnsoprano @Crazeedi Diane, my dear friend, I owe you a very long letter. I kind of feel as if life has turned me upside down. Just taking lots of deep breaths and thinking one day at a time. 4w
Crazeedi @Lynnsoprano I owe you a long one too, it sounds like our lives have been coinciding in many ways. I have had you on my mind and been saying to myself to send you a note, so no excuse. Big hug and no worries. After the holidays look for my letter!! 4w

Readathon storybook: Oshindonga & English | Dorian Haarhoff, Linekela Shipindo Moshindonga, Sarie Maritz
post image

Participating in these readathons hosted by @Andrew65 @kimmypete1 @Eggbeater @MidnightBookGirl starting this weekend - I‘m excited to try to finish some of the books I‘m in the middle of - especially because I want to start January off with a clean slate - I think I will aim for 10 hours this weekend and 25 hours for the week. We‘ll see!

StayCurious @FlynnDewey you might like these for #WinterGames2021 1mo
LiseWorks I don't understand how anyone can read more than one book at a time. I would get so confused, I stick to one and usually will finish it even if it's bad 1mo
Eggbeater Good luck! Thanks for joining! 1mo
StayCurious @LiseWorks I'm usually reading 4 or 5 at a time and if it's not going well, I don't finish it. I wish I could stick to one at a time, haha 1mo
PageShifter My starting with a clean slate might be to DFN some books now and try them again some time later 🤣 1mo

#WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers My week one total is 2813, not including the readathons which I‘ll tally up midway and at the end. This is great for me and I‘ve had a lot of fun reading kids books and holiday romances and watching Christmas baking specials. Here‘s hoping for a fun week 2 as well!

PageShifter Sounds awesome! 1mo
sblbooks Question: do Christmas-themed vlogmas YouTube videos count, as a holiday show or movie? I've watched a bunch of them, and I don't know if I get any points or not. 1mo

aperfectmjk How did I miss this week's game???????? This is my favorite!!! OH MY GOSH, I'm so behind. Eeeeek! 🤦‍♀️ 1mo
PageShifter Oh now - should I have sent something every day?? I thought that that it's 10 points per word and one word counts only once? Well my native language isn't English so I don't expect to figure out many words so I don't know if I should even try 😅 1mo
StayCurious @PageShifter no need to send every day, you can take all week to try and just let me know how many words you end up with. 1mo
StayCurious @aperfectmjk you‘ll do well I know! 1mo
sharread Do I post a photo of words with total or can I add the amount in my grand total. I found 200 words. 1mo

#TeamGameSleighers! Hope you are enjoying #WinterGames2021 so far! I wanted to let you know about another month long points earner - the #SelfieScavengerHunt. Each picture is worth 10 points and an extra 5 if there‘s a bookish theme. You can do them multiple times if you want. And your face does not have to be in the picture if you are shy. Looking forward to seeing your pics!

PageShifter Doing okay, I guess. Still a bit overwhelmed but hey : I have finished my first book! It has been quite a rough week with work :/ But I have also a question: should we post at some point how many words we have found or is it enough to add them to the total points? 2mo
StayCurious @PageShifter don‘t be overwhelmed! This is supposed to be a fun event and everything is optional. You can participate as much or as little as you want. And to answer your question, you can add any word points to your weekly total. 2mo

Read these two adorable stories to the little one and got some points for #WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers — 25 + 25 plus 210 for #WGWordSearch! I‘m telling you, spending a few minutes after you read to scroll through and find these words can earn you major points!

#TeamGameSleighers! Here is our first ever month long game! The #WGWordSearch! During the month, each time you find any of the words above in your books, award yourself 10 points! You don‘t need to take a picture of every word, simply keep tally and add those points to your book total.

StayCurious FYI: if you use ereaders, most have a search function so you can find these words. I‘ll totally allow this as I myself find it difficult to concentrate on finding specific words while reading 2mo

#TeamGameSleighers! Dec 1 is just around the corner which means #WinterGames2021 is about to begin! I‘m so excited! Are you excited? Don‘t forget to post those December TBRs to get early bird points. Also, the fabulous @Clwojick has created a list of all the readathons happening throughout the event - which can really help earn points. And take a look at our google doc where we have all the need-to-know stuff on the event-links in comments🎄

LitStephanie Haha, love your comment on the Hallmark holiday movies. I am pretty sure one of my TBR has been made into a Hallmark movie. 2mo
audraelizabeth For the movie bingo do they have to be hallmark movies or can they be hallmarkesque?like from Netflix but the same feel as hallmark. 1mo
StayCurious @audraelizabeth they can be any holiday movie - hallmark not required! 1mo
audraelizabeth Thank you. I signed up for frendly TV so I can catch some hallmark but Netflix has quite a few as well. 1mo

In a Holidaze | Christina Lauren
post image

Post 2 for #WinterGames2021 TBR - ebook version. I‘m most looking forward to In a Holidaze as I‘ve heard good things.

IndoorDame I liked In A Holidaze. And I don‘t know how, but you always manage to find the best steamy books. When I try I end up with such annoying prose. I‘m going to start stealing titles from you! 2mo
StayCurious @IndoorDame Haha sometimes I find annoying ones too! It‘s really a hit or miss with romance - especially holiday ones. Sometimes you have to acknowledge that it‘s going to be cheesy and just go with it 😝 2mo
IndoorDame @StayCurious 🤣 good to know. I guess I just have to be in the right headspace to read them, not count on them all being great 2mo
Hansarjohnson I‘d love to read In a Holidaze 2mo

Here is my physical TBR for #WinterGames2021. I think my most anticipated read for the event is the tagged book by Jessica Clare. She‘s fun and her stories always make me laugh. I also have a ton of ebooks coming in from the library which I‘ll put in a separate post. Can‘t wait for December! #TeamGameSleighers

PageShifter All are unfamiliar for me, except our team book. I wish you happy reading with these. (And yes, guess who also has added theme books to her pile after posting the TBR, haha) 2mo

To earn early bird points, post and play by Dec 1.

JenReadsAlot Finally going to read 2mo
Kshakal I am super excited for our holiday buddy read… 2mo
Patchshank I'm excited to read this. I started to read it last month, but realized it's a Christmas story so I saved it for December. I love Christmas horror stories. There's seems to be so few good ones. 2mo
Crazeedi @cwarnier thanks!! 2mo
Crazeedi My most anticipated read is 2mo
Crazeedi @carlthecattt your choice is a great book!! 2mo
Crazeedi @sharread I've read several of her books, and really enjoyed 2mo
Crazeedi @Desha that looks like a really good book! 2mo
Crazeedi @StayCurious question, will you tell us when to do each of the games in your Drive bundle? Or are they all ongoing all month?? 2mo
Crazeedi @cwarnier I just requested access to your document! Thanknyou 2mo
StayCurious @Crazeedi anything in the drive document is ongoing but we‘ll also have one game each week that I‘ll post and tag you in. They will be easy and should help get you a bunch of points. 2mo
Kdgordon88 My most anticipated book is with the #SundayBuddyRead group 2mo
aperfectmjk After looking over my selections I think I would say Wishin' and Hopin' is probably the one I'm looking forward to the most. I'm not much for romance novels, so this one should be refreshing. 2mo
Ash.on.the.line Most anticipated read is Jingle Wars. I‘m hoping it‘s good! 2mo
BayouGirl85 This is one of my favorite reading events of the year. 2mo
ChasingOm I bought this one last year after the holidays and have been waiting for Winter Games to actually read it! 2mo
coffeewithbooks Do they all have to christmas related books? 2mo
StayCurious @coffeewithbooks Christmas or winter themed books get you extra points but this year any book that‘s on your TBR gets points as well 2mo
StayCurious @sebrittainclark I just love holiday romances! So glad the #WinterGames gives me an excuse to read them 2mo
StayCurious @aperfectmjk if you are not much for romance novels, do you have any suggestions for other christmasy / wintery books that aren't romance? My husband @FlynnDewey is participating in the #WinterGames and needs suggestions 2mo
StayCurious @BayouGirl85 Thanks so much! 2mo
aperfectmjk @StayCurious oh wow, definitely hard to come by, but I would say any of the Mary Higgins Clark Christmas mysteries are a safe bet. I read A Christmas Story last year and it was really great. Skipping Christmas is what Christmas with the Kranks movie was based off of, so that one should be fun. There's a lot of other murder mysteries out there, maybe do a Google search. 2mo
wordslinger42 My most anticipated read is The Legend of Holly Claus! I re-read it every holiday season, and it never gets old! 😊🎄 2mo
coffeewithbooks So, if there not a Christmas related it counts 1pt ?? Sorry for the confusion 2mo
vonnie862 This looks like so much fun! I'll need to create my tbr once I get back home this weekend. 2mo
StayCurious @coffeewithbooks 10 points impulse reads, 15 points if book was on TBR, and 25 if it‘s holiday or wintery themed - basically you get points for anything you read 2mo
Patchshank I'm looking forward to reading this. And almost every other book on my list. 2mo
magyklyXdelish Most anticipated read, if I can ever get around to it! 2mo
SeaToSkyes I'm most excited to read this from my TBR! 2mo
MatchlessMarie Late commenting but my most anticipated December read is Boho Days by J. Collis which is going to be one of my Christmas present to myself 😂 2mo
dainarmb I'm looking forward to Window Shopping by Tessa Bailey! (IDK how to tag books on Litsy 😅🙈) 2mo
vonnie862 Looking through my TBR shelves, The Action Bible is a book that I am highly looking forward to. 2mo
bekakins I‘m looking forward to getting cracking with my Christmas book club read… Christmas Days by Jeanette Winterson 🎄🎄 (edited) 2mo
JoeMo I‘m excited about so much on my TBR list, but especially about Sixgun Santa! Probably because I just found it today. It‘s an old pulp collection of holiday stories! 😂🎄🎅🏻 2mo
Pigpen_Reads I'm most excited about The Christmas Village by Annie Rains. I can't wait to read it! 2mo
Bookjunkie57 Super late but I‘m really exited for Darynda Jones new book. I know it‘s not a holiday read but I love her stories and characters. Also I can‘t wait to watch my favorite Christmas movies. I‘ve been holding back til 12/1. 2mo
TheSpineView Still collecting books to read so I almost forgot to post my got to read book. In addition to the Tagged book I am also excited about reading A Holiday by Gaslight. 2mo

PageShifter Hi there! I am more than slightly overwhelmed at this point. Not only this is my first time to participate but I am also new on this platform. I have read Let It Snow, so I am going to read The Holiday Swap instead. I hope that I don't do something really wrong during this events! 2mo
Magpiegem Thank you @StayCurious this is so exciting and my first time taking part! I spent the whole day with a sickness bug, looking after my whole family who had the sickness bug too so this has been the 4.30am cheer up I needed! Can‘t wait to start earning our team some points!! 💚❤️💚❤️ 2mo

StayCurious @Magpiegem hope everyone is feeling better! 2mo
PageShifter @StayCurious Thank you, you're kind. I have so many stupid questions, sorryyy -.- But I had so much fun when I read all pictures where were different prompts and everything, haha. I start with some questions: can one movie/book be used for different prompts? And about searching for words: can you use the same word several times? What if one book has some word several times: does it count only once? 2mo
Moll I'm so exciteeeeed!! I've read Let It Snow before &lobed it but can't really remember what happens so I'll read that again, and I think I'll read The Holiday Swap too😂 2mo

StayCurious @KristiAhlers I‘ll check with @Clwojick and we‘ll assign you a team! 2mo
StayCurious @PageShifter yes you can use the same word several times and it counts each time you see it. Yes one book or movie can be used for multiple prompts. 2mo
KristiAhlers @StayCurious thank you. 2mo
Coueriamb Aaaay! I‘m so pumped! 2mo

dainarmb Sorry if this is a FAQ, but do our lists have to solely be Winter themed reads? I see we can focus on our 2021 TBR but mine is very much not snowy 😅 2mo

Ottergirl @StayCurious hello! Can‘t wait to start scoring points 😀 2mo
PageShifter I started to plan my TBR and now I am wondering if I should include all holiday books while I am planning my books. I am just wondering that holiday books give 25 points but do they give 25 + 15 if you have had them in your TBR? Or can we impulse read holiday themed books and get 25 points every time. Or is it then 25 + 10 points. Sorry for my stupidity xD 2mo
StayCurious @PageShifter great question! We ask that you take 25 points for a holiday or wintery book only, even if it‘s in your TBR or is an impulse read. These points are not stackable unfortunately. 2mo
PageShifter Thank you!! So it can also be wintery? It can be a horror book setting in wintery cottage?? ( I am weird and love reading these xD ) 2mo
