“Mom, let‘s sit on the floor with a book and be library kids!”
...10 minutes later, with half our home library on the floor...
“Oh yeah, this is a book party!” #raisingreaders
These are the only two books I have read by the fabulous Joshilyn Jackson.
I need to remedy that.
I have shared both books with many friends, and they thoroughly enjoyed the books too.
What books have you read?
It's the library of my dreams... @MrBook
“Science is an #enterprise that should be cherished as an activity of the free human mind. Because it transforms who we are, how we live, and it gives us an understanding of our place in the universe.”

I know I‘ve used this background from Typorama before for a Neil deGrasse Tyson quote 🤪
I didn't read at the coffee shop today. Instead, I wrote (about 700 words in 90 minutes). I actually had a fully formed story idea (based on a dream that I had a few nights ago) for an about 5k word story (it's mcu fanfic, an au set in wwii small town scandinavia). It's been a while, I always have ideas for beginnings but never for whole stories.
1 - Me in a selfie is like actual photos of bigfoot: few and far between. Instead here are a couple pics of one of my fave bookstores, The Book Loft, German Village, Columbus, OH. https://www.bookloft.com/tour-store
2 - “The castle is dizzyingly white, prone to a hint of tremble, as if built of concentrated clouds; as if a proper rainstorm could reduce it to an enormous, pearly puddle.“
3 - Dreary, 45 degrees F
I had to lower my book goal from 100 to 80 as the year got insane, but it's more than I read last year! Yay! 🥳📚
Sorry I have been lacking being on here and responding to you all! The last couple months have been crazy! I got married which was a long time coming but it was followed with some tragedy.
I‘ve been pretty down lately but I‘m going to make a come back! Been slacking and falling behind all of my books! But here‘s a silly picture of me at work today! 🤷♀️🙃 I hope you all enjoy 😂
Cuddling with this little man and reading! It‘s a good Wednesday! 😍💕
1. Old book selfie from my phone, and a couple of my overly stuffed bookcases.
2. ‘I turn on the TV and Pitch Perfect is your most watched thing, which makes sense now that I can see your college life on your Facebook.‘
3. Cool. Breezy. Cloudy. 53°. Great day for coffee and a book.
I‘ve never done a booked challenge before but decided this is gonna be the year I make a start! Is it something i officially sign up for with a form or do I just start taking part in the new year?? I‘m factoring my winter choices into my new year reading planning already 🥰

1. A photo from my brief "outfitwithbook" Instagram phase. My friend and I jokingly attempted to start a hashtag. What's the opposite of viral? I suppose the hashtag went antiviral.
2. ¡Me comeré el helado!
3. Rain and 60°F! Rainy season has begun! I might need to shelter my succulents.
Dear audiobook loving Littens, would you please be so kind to give me your opinions on the best way to get audiobooks? I'd like to start using them on my drive to and from work but I'm not sure where to start. 🤔
1. I don‘t think I have a bookish selfie on hand surprisingly! Here are some selfies of me from the last couple weeks and pics of bookshops I‘ve been to in London recently.
2. The “millennium” edition of Tolstoy fills a hundred volumes and weighs as much as a newborn beluga whale. From The Possessed by Elif Batuman
3. Cold and crisp winter day absolutely gorgeous in London!
My newest crochet project - a Santa-sack case for my kindle 🎅📚❤
I've decided I'm going to attempt to participate in this weekend's #24B4Monday readathon, even though every time I try my weekend ends up getting interrupted. 😒
Fingers crossed I'll be left alone this weekend!

@ljuliel asked “Can you name a book that has been written within the past few years that will be considered a Classic 100 years from now , and why you think it will be?“
That's a hard one. Maybe The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Maybe 100 years from now kids will read it while studying injustices of the past... one could wish.
The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else's cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same #name you call God - if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That's what I think.

Carys starts having flashbacks to her childhood on the farm, her father‘s punishments and a nightmare of abduction by the Shadow Man starts to recur. What secrets has she kept hidden for all these years? Was her father responsible for the missing girls and the remains buried on his land?
The story is told in chapters by various characters, with Carys in the present and past, as these progress there are some truly dark moments
