I know, I'm late

1) A precious dog named Westley 🐕
2) track down girl scout cookies and relax and get some studying done 🍪
3) cooking, shopping 🛍, exercise
4) Hawaii, Alaska, Disney World 😂 I haven't been to any of those places, although I wouldn't mind revisiting Vegas.
5) Weirdest thing to happen to you or a random fact about yourself?

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Around 2000, I won a Bon Jovi CD & a chance at front row concert tickets from a radio station. I chatted up the guy taking my info. A few days later, they announced the winner. It was me, I knew it, but they had a hard time pronouncing my last name. I had to spell it to confirm. 10mo
KrystleTheBookSlayer @SailorMoon definitely random, but interesting, I've never heard of anyone having an artificial iris! 👀 10mo
KrystleTheBookSlayer @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I love radio contests. I once won a trip to LA to attend a Katy Perry concert. I mostly just wanted the trip, but I went to the concert too. ☺🎶 10mo

1) at least 2 but usually 4-6. Depends on the month
2. A year without new books bc I spend a lot of time at the library anyway.
3. Last vacation was Seattle .
4. Yes, I always get shot glasses and magnet for myself. Also we got souvenirs for others especially a stuffed animal for my girlfriend's niece since we do that wherever we go.
5. 🖐🏻🖐🏻

Dear Litsy friend of #LetsGetCozy I'm trying to send this package to you. I thought I would have all September to do it but first came Hurricane Irma and now we are waiting for Hurricane María.I wished my wrapped could be prettier but I recently got electricity most of the time I was not at home due to the heat.I wish you like what I'm sending to you! I forgot two other items at home, I can send them later after the storm. Im in the post office

drokka I'm absolutely certain that your recipient will completely understand what you've gone through and won't care about the wrapping etc. That you can even get to a post office (that a post office is even open) I think makes up for anything you may think is lacking. Whatever is in the box will be appreciated. 🙂 @cobwebmoth 2y
cobwebmoth I totally agree with what @drokka said. Big hugs to you! Stay safe. 2y
Captivatedbybooks Im praying for you guys!!! My cousin just got light back on in Luquillo. 2y

I finally got an instagram account! It will be book focused (with some asides for pics of my dogs of course) if any of your Littens wants to connect over there, that would be fun! (Of course my first love will forever remain Litsy!)

My #SummerSantaGoesPostal update. I thought I was done, but seeing everyone's posts makes me feel like I should add some more. My goal is to get it out Tuesday though! I need to think of some cutesy extras to add! What are some smaller items you guys have thrown in?

mom2bugnbee Don't feel guilty... Put in what you want! I sent all books with the exception of one movie DVD that I know she wants to see because she loved the book. 3y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I've been wondering the same thing for the beachin book swap!! 3y
BookishMarginalia I usually include bookmarks, post its, pens/pencils, notebooks, book bag, mug... and a mix of new and used books -- I keep a lookout throughout the year for cute bookish stuff. It's just fun, so please don't stress! 3y

drokka Yeah, I wouldn't stress too much. Each of my sends so far have had completely different things thrown in. One had (what I thought was one) two dogs, so I sent something for the pooch, along with local stuff, the second one I added postcards, keychains, tea. This one, completely different again. Go with your gut. 3y
LibrarianRyan It's the thought that counts. I'm not sure mine was that great this time either. 3y
Leelee.reads Agreed- don't worry about it at all. It's all just for fun and the thought behind it is what counts. 😊 3y
Smangela @mom2bugnbee @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @BookishMarginalia @drokka @LibrarianRyan @Leelee.reads you guys are seriously the best 😍 thank you for making me feel better!! 2y
Captivatedbybooks Hunny it's got free books! Your good! 😂😂😂 2y
peaknit Oh my, you could add and add, you gotta stop somewhere:) a gift is a gift😊 2y
