And here‘s game 2 for Dec. 7 of the #wintergames

What‘s your reindeer name #TeamFestivus? For an easy 5 pts.

Mine‘s Pointy-toes Lord Crackle 🤷🏼‍♀️ Doesn‘t really sound like a reindeer. Maybe more like some kind of ballerina rapper. 😂

I‘ve noticed that many bibliophiles have cats. I‘d love to see by emoji who has a cat, who has a dog, or who has both...

I‘ll start: 🐕🐩
#curiousitykilledthecarbutnotthedog #catvsdog #bookcompanion

Librarybelle 🐈 🐈 🐈 3d
AkashaVampie 😣 (means none) would love to have some but would have to pay our landlord so much more money a month 3d
Lifeisasnap @Librarybelle do you have one that rules them all? I can‘t imagine having them all be royalty!! Lol 3d
See All 39 Comments
Lifeisasnap @AkashaVampie totally makes sense. We didn‘t have any for the longest time for that very reason. 3d
Skeebies05 🐈 🐈 ( both black, both jerks 🤣) 3d
Librarybelle Haha! There are power struggles for sure! All three are males as well, so I think that adds to the dynamic. 3d
Lifeisasnap @Skeebies05 that‘s why as much as i loved my childhood kitty, i could never have another one. I like to be in charge! Lol 3d
InBooksILive I've noticed that too actually! I have 1 🐕 3d
Lifeisasnap @Librarybelle smart move. A female would rule! 😉 3d
Prairiegirl_reading 🐶 but when she does something she isn‘t supposed to she is just extra lovey to distract me. She knows I can‘t be mad at her then. 🤣 3d
Lifeisasnap @InBooksILive what kind? I have puppies- a male and a female: ones a Border Collie the other a Border Aussie. 3d
Lifeisasnap @Prairiegirl_reading i totally get that. Our BC is outside mudding it up. He seems so proud of himself except i told him he now has to wait to come in until his dad gives him a bath. I rinsed him off three times yesterday. The snow is melting making a mess of everything. His sister- clean as fresh fallen snow. 😂 3d
ruskigurl16 🐱 and he rules the roost! 😹😹 3d
InBooksILive Aw I've always loved border collies, they're so smart, it blows my mind. Mine is a husky/chow. He's 6 😔 getting older way too quickly 3d
JanuarieTimewalker13 Hahahaha...my cats run me, ragged... 3d
Lifeisasnap @InBooksILive too smart- it gets them in trouble a lot if you don‘t walk them or run their energy out. We do this twice a day. You‘d think I‘d be skinny, alas no. 3d
Lifeisasnap @JanuarieTimewalker13 really? I thought cats were super chill. You must have unique kitties! ❤️ 3d
dariazeoli 🐶 3d
JanuarieTimewalker13 They‘re only super chill when they are sleeping. Lol I‘m always yelling “you‘re supposed to be a cat!!” to my Dean, who, clearly was a dog in his last life. I‘m getting old and ornery, and he‘s a 13 yo puppy-cat. Lol (edited) 3d
Branwen I have three kitties! 😸😸😸 3d
Soubhiville 🐈🐈🐕 3d
BookNAround 🐕🐈🦔 3d
Lifeisasnap @JanuarieTimewalker13 that‘s awesome! 3d
Lifeisasnap @Branwen how fun! 3d
Lifeisasnap @Soubhiville how‘s the dog feel about being bossed around by your cats? 3d
Lifeisasnap @BookNAround a dog, a cat and a hedgehog?? That‘s too cool!!! 3d
Soubhiville She‘s fine with it 😊. They all get along great most of the time. 3d
Karkar 🐶🐶 3d
Lifeisasnap @Karkar two dogs? Me too! What kind? 3d
Karkar @Lifeisasnap I have two miniature schnauzers - Sheba and Zelda. How about you? 3d
Lifeisasnap @Karkar how cute! Mine are a Border Collie and a Border Aussie. One normal size the other a mini. 3d
Enchanted_Bibliophile 🐕🐕🐈 3d
Lifeisasnap @Enchanted_Bibliophile does the cat rule your dogs, or do they all get along well? 3d
Enchanted_Bibliophile Mostly they get along. They are both very protective of her, whenever she gets in fights with other cats they will run to the rescue. Even if she started the fight. 3d
Lifeisasnap @Enchanted_Bibliophile i love the dogs will come to her defense!! Great siblings. 1d

I am so behind on my reading! ARGHH!! How do you guys get back into the reading groove after surviving life‘s curveballs? I have so many books to get through and am not sure how to prioritize them.

wanderinglynn After a life happening, I try to read a book that is light-reading or even fluffy. Something that will allow me to easily escape reality without having to think too much. I hope things are going better for you. 💚 4d
Lifeisasnap I hate when that happens. I always choose the book that‘s cover calls to me first to read when i can‘t decide which to start with. I hope your journey back to reading is enjoyable. Sounds like you deserve some down time. 4d
Valeka @wanderinglynn and @Lifeisasnap Thank you for the suggestions! Something fluffy with a catchy cover sounds perfect right about now! ❤️📚 4d
Lifeisasnap Enjoy 3d

marleed Oh yes. I was recently talking to a friend and she noted that she never eats a meal alone. And is seldom alone for even a morning or an afternoon, and almost never an evening. 5d

UnidragonFrag All this, all the time 😂 5d
marleed @wanderinglynn I think about that a lot - why I‘m content to be alone when so many people I know are not. I was alone often as a kid and maybe that has something to do with it. I try to tell them there is a big difference in being alone and being lonely but I‘m not sure I‘m really believed. I can point to the loneliest year of my life and I was definitely not alone. 5d

2. Yes, I‘ve given my daughter-in-law a box of books for her birthday and at Christmas every year, ever since my son started dating her - she depends upon it! ❤️

LeeRHarry I‘ve been in Aus for 20 years and still find it a bit strange 😆but it‘s lovely to sit outside with good company and a glass of wine 😊 6d
samanthagutt I wish the North Pole really existed so I could go there for Christmas! I‘d just love to go somewhere that would guarantee a White Christmas. I live in NJ so it‘s not impossible, but it rarely happens 😔 6d
teebe Banff or Lake Louise with my entire family. I need snow for the holidays so I wouldn‘t want to go anywhere warmer for Christmas, and I love the mountains. 6d
wanderinglynn @teebe Banff & Lake Louise are both on my list of places to see. 👍🏻 6d

samanthagutt 130 points! I have everything on this list BESIDES: pop song as my ringtone, candy crush app, no cell phone, and YouTube Kids app 6d
Chrissyreadit 54 points. 5d

Chrissyreadit @samanthagutt how do you deal with no cell phone? 5d
wanderinglynn @Chrissyreadit 🙌🏻 And I think Samantha means she got all the points *except for* no cell phone & those other things she listed. 5d
samanthagutt Thanks for clarifying @wanderinglynn , that‘s exactly what I meant! Sorry for the confusion, I just thought it would be a lot quicker to name the points I didn‘t get 😂 @Chrissyreadit 4d

I‘ve loved Niall Matter since he played bad boy genius Zane Donovan on Eureka. And playing a single dad in Falling for Christmas just makes him that much more adorable!

1. Probably not a lot because I‘m going to a friend‘s house and I‘ll be there most of the day.
2. No because I rarely visit family on Thanksgiving. Normally I binge Netflix. Sometimes I go to a friends.

Like the curious cat, I gotta know, @Cinfhen , or anyone else, what are the hashtags #MOvember and #papadontpreach all about?? I‘m finding all the books fascinating that are playing under those hashtags!!

Cinfhen Ha!!! Cute graphics😻😻😻I‘m hosting a monthly challenge based off of the songs of Madonna (#MOvember) and I guess it was day 21 that the song title was #PapaDontPreach. If you want to join in for the last week I can tag you on the original post. Basically you think of a book that corresponds to either title, lyrics whatever. No pressure and a nice way to interact with others🎶 2w
Caroline2 Cute!!!! 😍 2w
Lifeisasnap @Cinfhen I would love to play. Darn I‘ve missed so many days. I‘ve been wondering for a week, and finally I‘m like, “why don‘t you just ask, duh...” I loved Madonna as a teen, especially the Blue album. Spanish Lullaby was my first song to play for my first child. I just thought it was so pretty. (edited) 2w

1. Sometimes. Sometimes I can‘t focus because life happenings. Sometimes it‘s not the right time for me to read that book. Sometimes it‘s the book.
2. If I‘m having to force myself to read it. If reading the book feels like work. Or if the book is just terribly written.

TheSpineView I am a mood reader so sometimes I have to put a book down and pick it up later. Thanks for playing! 😊 3w

1. My favorite word is Killjoy. “Like come on, let‘s go. Don‘t be a killjoy!”
2. 3-4. It too long, not too short. Enough to develop the characters, have a good speed to denouement and not enough length to feel like it was too slow at the end or they rushed at the end to fit it all in.
3. Yes. Working on a YA, usually do memoir or middle grade.
4. @A_bookworms_nook @DaisyLu @ZacharyP

Your favorite books to get you in the mood for Thanksgiving? 🦃🦃🦃

Hoopiefoot I know it sounds strange, but for me it‘s Moby Dick. I spent one very quiet Thanksgiving in grad school alone reading Moby Dick, eating pie, and cat sitting for my friend. It was delightful & now I always think of Moby Dick at Thanksgiving. 4w
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Hoopiefoot What a delightful memory. 4w
Sace I tend so associate A Tree Grows in Brooklyn with Thanksgiving. I did one of many rereads when my daughter was in college and just my husband, daughter and I spent Thanksgiving together. That's only happened twice. Normally we are with the in laws. 4w

1. I love the interaction of groups of book lovers who share their passions & introduce new books to each other.
2. I haven‘t found anything, yet.
3. A glossary for all the hashtags so I knew what they all meant.
4. Daily
5. Yes
6. I‘d love to have a way to find the different readathons, swaps, read alongs etc. to me it‘s like the menu at In-N-Out Burger — you have the menu & then the cult menu that‘s not listed. I want it all listed. Lol

rules?

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego For 6 I suggest following @LitsyHappenings they repost most events on Litsy, so you can check there to see what's current. 1mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego The hashtags a mainly a way connect an event, and are ever changing, as new events pop up. The best thing to do is just comment and ask the person what a particular hashtag means... But I know what you mean. It took me forever to figure out what #lmpbc means, and now it's one of my favourite activities on Litsy! (Litsy Markup Postal Book Club) 1mo

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego It's so much fun! It's a book club where your in a group of 4 and you pick a book, write your comments in it and then mail to the next person.

Lifeisasnap @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I‘ll keep watching for the next round! Sounds like a lot of fun. Hey, Danielle, is there a group for the #NovemberTBR ? Or just everyone lists what they have picked from certain clubs followed like #MMD which I knew about since I‘ve been following her for years, or Reese‘s Bookclub?? I love the idea of collaging my TBRs for the month. Thanks for all your help. 1mo

I had to choose this because If Nobody Listens Part 2 isn't listened. This is a Norwegian Thriller that is action packed. I don't know how the author did it, put Part 2 was even better than Part 1. Rikard Sommer is a good writer. Can't wait to read more from him.
