#7Days7Covers #CoverCrush #CoverLove
Day 1
This is a book I chose for its cover AND bought at an airport bookstore this last Spring Break. 2 things I don‘t normally do! The premise of the book was intriguing as well as having a pretty cover. The siblings did frustrate me, but I did enjoy it. Thanks for the tag @Daisey @SoniaC do you want to join in?

Reecaspieces I enjoyed this one as well. 17h

Those that can‘t go & even those going: Check out CSPSN2 Book TV interviews of the National Book Festival this weekend. There‘s tons of stuff to record!
If you don‘t have CSPAN2 channel, you can watch shows online at CSPAN2 Book TV
Last year this helped me figure out who I should see in person or who should I watch when I went back home! #NationalBookFestival
#NatBookFest #NatBookFest2019

Scochrane26 I‘m sad because Barbara kingsolver will be there & I won‘t. 3w
Graciouswarriorprincess Thanks for sharing. Moving weekend so I will have to watch later. 3w
tpixie @Scochrane26 I know!! I wanted to go again this year - last year was my first time and I loved it. My daughter is pregnant with twins and due two months ( 32 was) and I was just worried that she would deliver right when I left town. But now it‘s like, “ I wonder how much a plane trip to Washington DC costs and is there anyway I could find a hotel last minute?! “. Lol. So I‘ll just have to watch C-SPAN2 and Book TV!! 3w

tpixie @Graciouswarriorprincess good luck moving!! You‘re halfway there! 3w
Scochrane26 @tpixie I‘m fortunate to have a couple of friends I could stay w/ if I could go. I didn‘t know about it until a few days ago when BK put it on her fb. I just want to meet her, but I‘m sure I would love the whole festival. 3w
Chrissyreadit I will check it out! I‘m giving my niece my ticket to Dear Evan Hanson and going to the book fair! 3w
tpixie @Scochrane26 yes! Save up for next year!! Labor Day Weekend! 3w
tpixie @Chrissyreadit awesomeness!!! Have a blast and I hope to see you next year! 3w
DivineDiana Why am I just seeing this? 🙁 6d
tpixie @DivineDiana I know! It‘s so hard to keep up with Everything!!! The talks likely are still streaming online at CSPAN2 Book TV. Or even the Library of Congress website. Just remember it‘s every Labor Day weekend and although it‘s a blast to go, you can tape it from home! 6d
DivineDiana Thank you! Just signed up for an account, so I can save the talks. RBG is still there! 6d
tpixie @DivineDiana awesome!!!! I love RBG‘s scarf she is wearing ! 😂 6d
DivineDiana I‘ll have to take a look! 🙂 6d

Reading this novel by a local author. In the vein of Educated and Where the Crawdads Sing. i‘m trying to keep an open mind. I think she does it herself as a victim more than a survivor

Megabooks I didn‘t care for this one and bailed. 4w
tpixie @Megabooks If it weren‘t audio and I‘m in between book club books I probably would be bail also. I really want to read Educated. I‘m much more impressed with her story of empowerment 4w

Tattooist of Auschwitz | Heather Morris

“ To Save One, Is To Save Mankind “.

This was a powerful book!

thewallflower0707 I heard a lot about this book! But I think it is important to mention that the @/AuschwitzMuseum twitter account has pointed out the several factual errors in this book. 4w
tpixie @thewallflower0707 thanks!! For info!! I bet it was due to poetic license since it‘s a novel or maybe even Lole‘s memory. But I‘m sure the Auschwitz Museum wants to keep things as factual as possible. 4w
tpixie @thewallflower0707 I really did enjoy the story this and the Alice network have been my favorite books lately. I want to read the huntress next because there‘s a cameo of one of my favorite characters from the Alice network in there 4w

I love my new Kindle's #BookBuddy from #MelvisMakes on Etsy! #Kindle #KindlePaperwhite

Avanders So pretty! 😍 2mo
tpixie Yes I thought the dandelions were a fun pattern! and she special made it for me so that it would fit the Kindle paperwhite! - she told me that the small book buddy would just be a little too big. 2mo

The cover art on these books are so beautiful, and very similar! I wish we could learn more about cover artists!

BookwormM I have noticed a lot of covers with curves and flowers lately have to say I love em 2mo
tpixie @BookwormM yes there have been a lot! I love them also! Lol I guess the marketing departments have figured that out!! 2mo
ruskigurl16 Interesting that you noticed this. The tagged book was my current #lmpbc group read, so I don't want to reveal spoilers, but the cover is very filling and I know it appealed to me to pick it up at the store. ❤️ 2mo
tpixie @ruskigurl16 I picked The Immortalists for it‘s cover too! And now I want to read the other two! 2mo

Had a great time exploring inside and outside this beautiful museum and their grounds. Even got to browse through their library!! #CrystalBridges #BentovilleArkansas

Scochrane26 I saw the exhibition at the biltmore last fall. It was amazing. Would love to see the museum. (edited) 2mo
tpixie @Scochrane26 awesome!! This museum is pretty inside and out!! Apparently the museums on the east and west coast are mad that there is such a museum in the Midwest. They believe all the artwork should go to the east or west coast and not in the Midwest! 😃😜😆😂 2mo

I‘m not Catholic but my son-in-law and daughter are so I follow the Pope. I finally broke down and ordered a #KindlePaperwhite and it‘s supposed to arrive today! I think this is a good sign! 🤔😰😜😇📚😂

AlaMich Enjoy!!! They‘re great. I love real books too, but the light and the ability to increase the font size are sooo helpful! 3mo
Hestapleton My kindle paperwhite has changed my nighttime reading!! 3mo
See All 10 Comments
tpixie @AlaMich yes! That font size!!!!! 3mo
tpixie @Hestapleton I‘m looking forward to that!! 3mo
Hestapleton @tpixie no blue light (which makes it easy on your eyes) and it‘s so cozy to just read in the dark until you fall asleep. :) 3mo
tpixie @Hestapleton yes! I‘m really interested in protecting my eyes. I‘ve been using my iPhone to read at night and I know it can‘t be good for me. And the paperwhite is light weight too so it when it falls on my face it won‘t hurt too!! And the #paperwhite is lightweight too so it when it falls on my face it won‘t hurt too much! 🤓 3mo
BookBabe I saw you were asking around about e-readers, so I came here to see if you got one! Congrats! I love them. I have an iPhone and iPad, and I do read on them sometimes when it‘s more convenient for whatever reason (like it‘s the device in my hand at the moment), but e-ink e-readers are a far superior reading experience. My new Kindle Oasis is arriving today, I‘m so excited! I‘ve been using Kindles for the past few years. 😊 3w
tpixie @BookBabe I have enjoyed my kindle paperwhite- esp for my eyes. I do miss the color that‘s on my iPhone. And the kindle is slower when I‘m highlighting or looking up things, which surprise d me. (edited) 3w

This is a fun book where the reader can communicate with the character in the book. I like the sentence where they use LISTEN instead of HEAR. There‘s a big difference between hearing something and really listening.

There are too many mosquitoes outside this summer due to all the rains. I think I‘m going to have to read by my window more instead of outside!

MicheleinPhilly Ugh. I HATE mosquitos and I am a mosquito magnet. If I see standing water anywhere I‘m like, “GET RID OF THAT!” 3mo
tpixie @MicheleinPhilly yes!!! Later today when it‘s hotter I‘m hoping to go out there and spray mosquito 🦟 repellent around and turn my fan on and maybe that will keep them away. Ticks and mosquitoes are horrible! 3mo

The rain has not been coming to our irises this year. here‘s a brand new one though that came up that we had never seen before!

as far as the book goes it‘s a quirky little tale. it‘s kind of like Forrest Gump – in that he goes on inadvertent adventures and meets famous people throughout history

tpixie @CouronneDhiver no, I don‘t. I‘ll let you know if my husband does. We usually just make up names for them. He has over 125 varieties! 4mo
CouronneDhiver More pictures? And maybe some advice if he has any. 😃 4mo
tpixie @CouronneDhiver he doesn‘t know the name. But his advice: Don‘t plant them deep. Make sure the top of the rhizome is above ground. Make sure there is good drainage, so they don‘t stand in water. 4mo
JoanehSmith That 100 year old man sure has had an interesting life...I‘m halfway through it and shaking my head! 😁 4mo

1. Coffee at home, Tea at work! ( better for breath! 😂
2. Salty- but like DARK chocolate 🍫
3. Dogs- 🐶 b/c I‘m needy. But love cats 🐱 too!
4. Love to look 👀 at both, but it‘s easier to read 📚 at the beach 🏖 !
5. Tagging @Betty @Kathrin @Unabridged not certain If you‘re doing the swap or not!

I‘m finally reading this cute book! If I were reading the physical book I would be highlighting every book that Mr. Lemoncello casually integrates into his sentences! I listened to the Author at #NatBookFest #NatBookFest2018 he was so entertwining !! And I had such an awesome time at the Festival with @Bookworm83 and we had fun meeting other Littens while we were there!

ReadingRover This books was so much fun to listen to on audio! I just listened to it a few weeks ago and loved it. 5mo
tpixie @ReadingRover yes it‘s a fun audio!! I also got the e-book from the library to help me when they have more of the visual clues! 5mo
Lady_Tigana_20 This series has been on my TBR list for too long. Pretty sure my library has the ebook. Need to read it. 5mo

tpixie @Lady_Tigana_20 yes, I finally decided to give it a try!! The ebook is helpful for all the visual clues/ codes!! 5mo
jewright I read this one last fall while I was recovering from my broken leg. I liked the literary allusions, but the story kind of dragged for me. 5mo
tpixie @jewright it‘s definitely a kids book 📚 but I‘m palate cleansing 5mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @tpixie @bookworm83. Did you see that he released a new book in this series today? 4mo

Tanisha_A So pretty! 5mo
tpixie @Tanisha_A thanks! The purple is so pretty!! My husband and I are thinking about planting some red buds outback so there‘s more color out where we sit! I wish I had time to plant more flowers that would progressively flower throughout the summer. To keep all the colors coming! 5mo

Us Against You | Fredrik Backman
post image

Just finished this book today. It was awesome! This book and Beartown has all the feelings! Backman's writing brings out my emotions like the books I read during my childhood.

BookishMeanderings I love Backman's writing. I have Beartown on my tbr and can't wait to get to it when I have the time. 5mo
tpixie @BookishMeanderings He has become my favorite author. I really held off a long time before reading Beartown because why would I want to read about hockey?!!! but there‘s so much personal relationships it really was a great read. and my husband is a basketball coach and my kids played sports so I can relate that way too. 5mo

Chelseabillups30 Black, wine red or green dress slacks, like a mahogany brown color pant or chocolate brown pant. Khaki maybe? I‘m thinking solid colors would be best with a top that could be either solid color as well or have a light print to it. 5mo
Cathythoughts Oh wow ! They are fab 😁 5mo

Today in Kansas we‘re having some California weather! And a little bit of Spring is peeping through the ground!!

pdever Isn't it glorious? We are having the same in Missouri. We know spring is here because my wife and I saw a false morel today... That means the real morels are lurking and waiting to be found as well! Yea, spring! 5mo
tpixie @pdever yay!! My son went hunting for morels once! It was a grand adventure!! ( I was born in Carthage, MO, lived in Springfield & Jeff City, My siblings and parents were born in St. Louis- but I grew up in Overland Park, KS/ now in Hutchinson. Lol that's my life in a nutshell! 🍄😄😛😜 5mo
Tanisha_A Beautiful picture! 5mo
