The Horror!! The Horror!! Its November 14th, but you would think its December 14th. Not only is the mall decked out top to bottom with Christmas decorations and blaring yuletide music, but there was a Christmas parade through the mall tonight. A Christmas parade in November, 5 weeks before 12/25!!
Luckily, I found a few books that made the mall trip worthwhile.

BookNAround We got our first Christmas card today. Bah-humbug! 6d
Reggie Yikes!!! 6d

Today is the first day that actually felt like Autumn, not 90+ degrees outside. Instead it's a nice 71, sunny and breezy, so a used bookstore visit was necessary. I wasn't consciously thinking about October or Halloween, but I ended up with a book about a zombie, one on a creepy deserted space station, and one with a werewolf (maybe).

4thhouseontheleft Lucky! We finally get the cooler weather tomorrow. It‘s 96 right now. 😩 2mo

erzascarletbookgasm Sherlock Holmes retelling? Looks interesting 🙂 2mo
RamsFan1963 @erzascarletbookgasm Its an interesting series, having SH meet real people like H.G. Wells, Poe, Houdini and Teddy Roosevelt, but also tangling with fictional characters like Dracula, Dr Jeckle & Mr Hyde and The Martians 2mo

MiniMe's selection process for the #7days7covers challenge was rigorous and (to the detriment of some of my personal faves) ruthless.

We're talking group stages, knock-out rounds, the whole shebang 🤣

This is part one of my #BNBookHaul! My local Barnes and Noble didn‘t have a very large selection, so I also placed an order online which should be in next week! I also got this free bag for purchasing at least 3 books!

The chaos is coming together and the new place is starting to feel like home. The other half of this room will be devoted to Funko Pops. If 90 % of the books are mine--10% are his; it is the reverse for Pops...and I love it! 😍😍😍 IKEA will be consulted soon as we've run out of shelves..🤷‍♀️

I've only been on Litsy for about a year and a half, so I didn't have to go back too far for my first book haul. Of the three, I've only read The Witch of Lime Street.

Used my 20% BAM coupon on these, picked something outside my usual genre choices. I've heard very good things about The Gray Man series, and the other book gave me good Tom Clancy vibes.
Also, saw the movie Hobbs & Shaw. Two big thumbs down👎👎 So loud, so many obnoxious characters, a ridiculous storyline that makes no sense. Unless you're a big fan of either of the leads, I'd skip it.

I had to have dental surgery this morning, so I just wanted to go home with my swollen face and read. Of course I have nothing to read, yeah right, so a stop at the used book store and BAM was required.

So far this year I have finished 91 books and 22,484 pages. I finally feel like I‘m getting back to my reading life pre-motherhood! (Kiddo turns six the end of next month)

Caveat: last year I didn‘t include books I read with the kid, so that‘s part of the difference. We read quite a few books, including Chronicles of Prydain and other series. This year I‘m counting them.

Crazeedi Great job! And the year is only half over! 5mo
rretzler My boys and I read and enjoyed The Chronicles of Prydain several years ago. Have you read The Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins yet? That‘s another series that we enjoyed together. 5mo
ravenlee Thanks, @Crazeedi ! @rretzler we haven‘t yet, but I‘ve heard good things about it. This year we‘re doing the Nancy Drew challenge, so other reading has taken a backseat to that. It‘s on my list to check out, though! 5mo

1. Reading more
2. Reading more fiction
3. Trying different genres to fulfil challenges
4. Trying to get hold of US books which aren‘t (easily, cheaply or sometimes at all) available in the UK.

Interesting. Thanks @Megabooks

Megabooks Interesting! I didn‘t used to read a lot of nonfiction before Litsy. Totally agree about the challenges! 6mo

Beautiful sunny day, perfect day to add to Mount TBR. I'm pretty sure I read Seinlanguage back in the 90s, since I was a huge fan of the show, but if so I don't remember it. I found The Cuckoo's Calling at Goodwill for $1, thought I'd check it out since everyone on Litsy has praised the series.


Leftcoastzen Nice haul! 6mo

marleed Daisy Jones has been singing in my head since I read her. 6mo
MrBook @marleed Been seeing that one everywhere! Is it based on a true story? 6mo
marleed @MrBook It‘s fictional which somehow makes the way it was written intriguing. But I‘ve read piles of author interviews in the past 3 months. She was inspired by the relationships of Fleetwood Mac. She also thought of a 60s Linda Rhonstat. So a little bit Stevie and a little bit Linda. 6mo

One of today's projects was building shelves to display some book collections in my "grandkids room." there's tons of books on a big unit in the closet along with some puzzles and learning toys but these are some of my favorite collections and I wanted to display them. The shelves were an easy project coming together in the course of the afternoon ?

Princess-Kingofkings These shelves and their occupants look so inviting. 10mo
TheHeartlandBookFairy @Princess-Kingofkings Thank you! I'm still going through my grown up and out of the house kids stuffed animals, I know they had a giraffe beanie somewhere and I'm pretty sure there's a chicken too. I must find these LOL 😂 Seriously though just looking at these makes me so happy 😊📖❤️ 10mo

TheHeartlandBookFairy @Princess-Kingofkings , each of those collections Have a special meaning to me. My daughter's nickname was giraffe, she is tall and thin LOL. My late husband loved bears and one of my Pomeranians is named bear. We also have a bat house and I usually have at least 20 bats in the it. Bats are fascinating hence all the bat books. My granddaughter is currently in the unicorns. My grandparents owned a poultry farm & the Little red hen was a fam fave. 10mo
TheHeartlandBookFairy @Princess-Kingofkings another son was Independence and I have a whole collection on a different shelf. And my oldest son's 2nd grade class adopted a manatee. For about the next 20 years, we adopted a manatee for him for his birthday each year. We even went and visited his Manatee one year.they are truly the sweetest most gentle creatures ever! 10mo
TheHeartlandBookFairy @Princess-Kingofkings and all of The wizard of Oz books are a nod to l frank Baum and his ties to Holland Michigan and the macatawa area where I live. They are actually creating a yellow brick road and an oz theme to a park near our library in his honor! I'm so excited 😁 https://www.hollandsentinel.com/article/20120408/NEWS/304089929 10mo
