This book is about resurrecting purpose in your life so that you too may join the race and claim victory. It is not about escaping our past life, but rather running towards the finish line entrenched in emotional, physical and spiritual wholeness. It is about transmogrifying (which is to change or alter greatly and often with grotesque or humorous effect) and accepting the renewal of our spirits. Slowly building up momentum as we lessen the dead weight of our pain, we can see more clearly our divine purpose in life. Stepping into new sneakers we can now move forward onto the predestined path to our greatness. If you are looking for a get-rich quick book, this is not for you. If you are seeking easy answers, this book is not for you. However, if you are interested in self-reflection and spiritual awakening, this book is for you. The author guides us through her trials and tribulations, well attended pity parties she so cleverly coordinated and her race to the finish line. Recognizing she is the first book of many to be read..we stand on the sidelines cheering her onward. We take a ride with her on a rollercoaster of life's twists and turns as she leaves us suspended in time; we reflect and relate on the similarities in our own lives. (From the Foreword by Raquele Tysheen Brimmage)

I don‘t know what book(s) I‘ll #readordonate this month, but I know I‘ve totally reorganized my shelves and taken a number of books to the LFL, including these from my original list in the top picture.
-Albom
-Brooks
-Cisneros
-Fuentes
-Grann
-James
-O‘Brien
-O‘Dell

I‘ve offloaded enough books that I can have the bulk of my fiction TBR on one shelf as shown in the bottom picture. Hardbacks, MMPBs, and mysteries are elsewhere for now.

KadaGul I love Little Free Libraries (LFL)! Finding good books feels like striking gold, and I share the ones I don't keep with LFLs. It declutters my space and allows the books to find new homes. It's a thrilling way to share the joy of reading! 3w

My first TBR of 2024! Here is my #JanuaryTBR. My goal this year is to read down my owned tbr stacks. So each month everything on my monthly TBRs will be something I already own. Most of these I have physical copies, a couple are audiobooks I purchased. As always I will be participating in #Roll100 #bookspin #doublespin & #bookspinbingo

I listened to the song About You by The 1975 recently and I was inspired to make this bookish meme. The lyrics from the song that I‘m referring to say,”Do you think that I‘ve forgotten? Do you think that I‘ve forgotten about you?” This seemed like the perfect song to use. I‘ve never made a bookish meme. Maybe I‘ll hear another song and be inspired to make another bookish meme. I don‘t know when inspiration will strike me next.

I‘m sharing a Story Highlight section I made on Instagram with books I want to read. I called it To Be Read and I made a collection called To Be Read where I save books that I want to read. According to the collection, I have 382 books saved. Some of the books I saved are mine and some of the books I saved are not mine.

I‘m sharing how I organized my Goodreads TBR recently. I was on TikTok and some people on there said that they organized their Goodreads TBR by tropes that are in the books they want to read but I decided to organize mine by genre. I have a lot of books that I want to read but when I‘m trying to look through my Want To Read shelf, it takes forever to look through it to find something. I have to continuously scroll through it.

Today, I‘m sharing a spreadsheet I made of my book series that I need to finish. I haven‘t started any new series. There‘s 67 series on here. The Harry Potter series was on this spreadsheet before and I finished that series this year so I deleted that one off my spreadsheet. I feel really good about that. If I can‘t find the books in a series to read then I‘ll delete the series off of my spreadsheet.

Today, I‘m sharing a photo collage of the books I chose when I was still subscribed to #amazonfirstreads. I have 49 books. I had to look up the books I chose because I didn‘t remember. I subscribed in 2019 and I unsubscribed this month because I wasn‘t reading the books I picked but I just realized that I read 1 of them. I read The Wedding Game by Meghan Quinn and I enjoyed it but I forgot that I picked it.

I‘m an Amazon Prime member and I‘ve decided to unsubscribe from #amazonfirstreads. I picked out 2 ebooks for this month. I unsubscribed from this program last night because I realized that I‘ve been picking out books to read from this program every month but I haven‘t been reading them and I feel bad about it because I want to read them. When I‘ve read the books I picked out, I‘ll subscribe again.

Here is my #bookspin list for January 2023! I‘m so happy to be participating in this challenge this year. Hopefully, I‘ll do it right! As the months go on, this list will probably get edited because there are a few other challenges I‘m participating in that I might sprinkle in here from time to time. Hoping for a successful reading year! Cheers! 📚 🙂

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! There's pretty much not a “wrong“ way to do this challenge... I'm a pretty loosey-goosey host!!! 😂 1y

I grabbed a few books off my TBR shelves, so here are eight choices. I have many more if the genres don‘t work or if my #LMPBC group has already read these. Like @Readergrrl , I‘ll add bookmarks in comments. I‘m not sure how the selecting works. Do we comment on each other‘s posts? Communicate via email? #GroupT #Round15 @suvata @BookishBelle @vonnie862

vonnie862 The Mystery of Mrs Christie is actually on my TBR so this one is high up on my list. The next two that catch my attention are The Love Songs & Cutting for Stone. 2y
BookishBelle Yes, we comment on each other‘s posts with what we‘ve read and/or are interested in and then the poster decides which of their books to read and send out. 2y
BookishBelle I would happily read all of these. I am most interested in The Mystery of Mrs. Christie. After that, Nine Tailors, Commonwealth, and Seven Gothic Tales. 2y
Kimzey @Readergrrl Would you like to weigh in on my TBR pile? 😏 2y
Readergrrl I‘m so sorry, I don‘t know how I missed your post! These all sound interesting. I‘ve read Mudbound (it was amazing) but I‘m most interested in Cutting for Stone (I‘ve heard such wonderful things about it). But, I will be happy to read any!! 2y
Kimzey @vonnie862 @BookishBelle @readergrrl Well, we had two votes for Mrs. Christie and two for Cutting for Stone. In thinking of how to break the tie, I realized my copy of Cutting for Stone is 667 pages long and The Mystery if Mrs. Christie is only 272. So, I will go with the shorter book, The Mystery of Mrs. Christie! 2y
vonnie862 @Kimzey I'm looking forward to reading it. 2y

Kimzey I‘m not sure if I should be giving my opinion on which to read, but the ones that appeal most are Overstory (I‘ve started it on audio ), Cloud Cuckoo Land, Firekeeper‘s Daughter, The Vanishing Half, Ptolemy Grey. 2y
Readergrrl Thanks @Kimzey ! I should have been more clear. Yes, I would love your opinion. I want to pick a book that no one has already read and would like to read too. I‘ll wait to see @vonnie862 and @BookishBelle think as well. 2y
vonnie862 Sorry, I've been out of town & won't be returning home until tomorrow. Firekeeper's Daughter, Cloud Cuckoo Land, or the Vanishing Half sound good. 2y
BookishBelle Sorry, I‘ve just had too much going on lately. I am most interested in Vanishing Half, The Historian, Ptolemy Grey, and Winterset Hollow. 2y

Even though I‘ve been so busy this month, all together I just flew through this book. I gave it a 4/5 ⭐️ 2y

My plans for March. Some of them I already finished because I‘m reading a lot while I am on vacation. Both my #bookspin and #doublespin are #NYRB books an I certainly hope to read both this month.
Also I need to finish the first quarter of #Booked2022 and I want to keep up with #ReadingAfrica2022!
Laat but not least, it‘s the month of the #ToB22 and I want to read just one more shortlisted book before the tournament starts!

I have been eyeballing the #bookspin and #doublebookspin challenge for a LONG time! I think I‘ll give it a shot this year! Hopefully, I‘ll do it right!

Here‘s to more reading in 2022!!

Bit of an issue with my TBR shelves now….. (photo is of *some* of my physical unread books).

At the start of 2021 I had 246 books on my TBR mountain. I‘ve only read 35 of those books during the year 😬(mmm….shiny new books instead!)

So now, with the books I‘ve bought and not read in the year my TBR mountain currently stands at 348 books. (194 Kindle, 154 physical)

Guess what one of next year‘s challenges is?! Yes - read the TBR mountain!

Hazel2019 Love it! That‘s what I‘m doing in 2022! 2y
catiewithac You are brave to count! 2y

Nute I never count the books that are unread on my shelves. I would probably be so disappointed at the lack of movement from unread to read, but just like you, Helen, maybe the number grows because I keep adding shiny new books to it.🥴 @MicheleinPhilly I love the idea of enjoying your bookshelves as your own personal bookstore!

squirrelbrain @Caroline2 I haven‘t gone into full book-buying ban (yet!) but definitely trying to use the library more, and Libby / Scribd etc. For #booked2022 I‘ve managed to get nearly all off my own shelves. I‘m actually skipping this month‘s book club read - I nearly bought the hardback but changed my mind. I may buy it if it goes cheap on Kindle again. I wonder how many TBR books we have jointly that we could buddy read?! 2y

Just found this comparison of tags on StoryGraph. Interesting to see the difference in the ones I tagged 2020-favorites and the ones on my current #TBR list.
SG is working well to capture my TBRs. I'm still struggling to capture WHY I add certain books. This morning I realized that I could stack them here with a blurb to explain why I'm adding it.
I don't see that done much though? How do you remember why you chose a book for later?

DGRachel I love that template! It‘s gorgeous! 4y
suzie.reads @DGRachel it's great isn't it? I literally can't remember who posted it as it was in January 🤣 4y
LibrarianRyan It was me!! @DGRachel I can repost the blank one if you like it if you use Canva I can send you a canva copy. I just change the colors each year. 4y
DGRachel @LibrarianRyan I have no idea what Canva is, but yes please - if it‘s no problem to repost, that would be great!! 4y
suzie.reads @LibrarianRyan how did I not remember it was you? Thank you 😊 4y

@TheAromaofBooks

Sarah, thanks so much for adding me to your #BookSpin list! What a great way to get motivated to look back at my TBR and commit to whittling it down. These are all from my Kindle, but I have quite a few physical ones as well. 🤪🤪🤪

I‘ll re-post your original announcement as well in case more are interested. 😊👍

TheAromaofBooks Love your list!! I am so enjoying seeing what everyone is thinking about reading! I'll be sure to tag you with the lucky number on Sunday!! 😁 4y
robinb @TheAromaofBooks thank you! 💕 4y

Been sorting out my 2020 #tbr stack going to try and fit all these in around the new releases and my impulse reads 😏 Will definitely be doing #MountTBR 📚 Mount Munch on Goodreads - 36 books, don't want to go too high ⛰

Jeshara I see Kathy Reichs on top there. Are you a fan and would recommend? I love the TV show Bones, and I've always wanted to try out a book or two of hers. 4y
suzie.reads @Jeshara I haven't read any yet but they've been recommended to me 😊 4y

Jumping on board #LitsyAtoZ reading challenge hosted by @BookishMarginalia

Here's my #AbecedarianTBR. I'm not much of a longterm planner when it comes to reading, so that's just about as far as I've gotten. I think this book challenge will suit me just fine! (Rules are simple: one book per letter of the alphabet--either beginning of title or author's last name). 😊

This is my pile so far for #24B42020 all of these are also audiobooks that I will be listening to as I read, for some reason that is my favorite way to read books at the moment. I am not sure which one I am going to start with yet.... The Help is going to be a reread for me, so I may push that one towards the bottom of the pile.

#WinterGames #MerryReaders

Andrew65 I loved The Help. Enjoy the Readathon, great to have you with us. 😊👍 4y
