Just returned from vacation and my mailbox was stuffed with this gorgeous tote bag and a stack of #LitsyLove letters. Wow! Thanks @24in48 for such a cool door prize. And I‘m so grateful for all my #LitsyLove pen pals. Thanks for all the love! 😘😘😘 It‘s going to be a weekend of power letter writing. 😅✍🏻💌
P.S. Next #24in48 Readathon is January 18-19, 2020.

ljuliel Are they skipping the next 3 months for readathons ? That sounds so far away ! Is it for the holidays ? 2mo
Avanders 🥰🥰🥰 2mo
UwannaPublishme @ljuliel I‘m not sure. I only remember them having two a year. But there‘s never a shortage of Readathons. Dewey‘s is coming up on Oct 26. And #24b4Monday is going on now! 😊📚 2mo

It‘s Canada Day long weekend and I‘m feeling very thankful for all the thoughtfulness of my fellow #PoutinePenPals! I‘ve been feeling rather overwhelmed lately, so I haven‘t been able to respond as quickly as I‘d like. But I wanted to let you all know how very much I appreciate you. 💜

Sometimes things happen exactly when they need to. 💕

Was feeling a bit sad yesterday (lots of self doubt that wouldn't leave me alone). Then today a much loved library patron came in and gifted me with this lovely bag with my initial embroidered on the front! The card says, 'thank you for making my days at the library so enjoyable!'

I really needed this today and am endlessly lucky to work at such a wonderful library! 📚💕

Thanks @Owlizabeth for cool books, sweet summer pampering, Harry Potter and cat related love, and a poster book with my favorite group of women, the madres de la plaza de mayo (in addition to other coolness). And, when I checked my email, awesome ebooks were waiting too! I appreciate everything so much! I‘m excited to read stuff I haven‘t come across before! #summersantagoespostal

Managed to catch this milestone and then promptly forgot to post it🙈 Let‘s blame it on the pregnancy hormones😜

So, a little later, but no less heartfelt, a huge thank you to all you wonderful Littens!! I love knowing there‘s this beautiful community of lovely people who are just as crazy about books and reading as I am☺️
You‘ve inspired me to read even more, to read outside my comfort zone, to be more aware of what I read... I can keep going☺️

@TheSpineView I don't even know what to say! I felt like a kid on Christmas day all over again opening up that box of goodies! You are such a generous person. I love every single thing and I appreciate it all more than you know. I really needed some cheering up so I thank you so, so much. Ferrero Rocher is my absolute favorite chocolate with Ghiradelli at a very close second! The B&N gift card I was not expecting at all.. just.. thank you

TheSpineView I am so glad I was able to spread a little cheer. I hope you enjoy. Hide the chocolate!! 🤩 11mo

Dear @erzascarletbookgasm,

My reading year was pretty awesome! (I don't use that word lightly) I nit only upped my Goodreads Challenge to 150 books I also far exceeded that hoal thanks to Litsy friends, recommendations, NetGalley and lots of reading time.

I've read so many different books, tried new-to-me authors and genres.

Thank you for this generous giveaway! #festivebookishbox

Thank you Littens for being the best!

erzascarletbookgasm Congrats for surpassing your GR goal 👏. Here‘s to a more awesome year ahead 🍻. Thanks for entering, 🤗🍀 11mo

Thank you @LapReader for the AMAZING haul! I want to read all the books, will be making a Christmas shopping list in the notebook tonight and may even put on the socks! I can‘t believe I‘m hard to buy for. 😛 Funny that we got each other for #thankfulforbooksswap. I can‘t get books here fast enough so not many swaps in my future. I‘ll send you the book I ordered for you! Thanks @JamieLou for organising!!

KrystleTheBookSlayer @Jee_HookedOnBookz it's one of my best ideas ever! 😂 it keeps temptation out of the house, I snack proportionally (and only if I'm feeling hungry), plus anyone who happens to be in my vehicle gets a free snack, everyone wins! So far, it hasn't derailed my diet at all. 😊 12mo

Oh my gosh...look how much Megan spoiled me! 😍

I didn‘t get a chance to open my #AllHallowsRead package until after conferences tonight, but it was so worth the wait!

A gorgeous tarot deck (with a book!), all of these lovely books (Made for Love! Craft!), Pennywise stuff, ghost socks, a witchy candle, Alice‘s Nightmare coloring book, a sugar duck!! So much more. And a string of lights I can use to make my posts 😎

Thank you so much! ❤️❤️❤️

sprainedbrain Also! @ReadingRover I just love that totally rad 80s cat card and your note. You obviously put so much thought in to everything and I truly LOVE everything you sent. Thank you again! 12mo

@monalyisha - I am floored by your thoughtfulness! I have not read any of the books and am so happy to add them to my shelves. I‘m totally stealing your “My Pick/Your Pick” idea! 💖 The bonus birthday book is so generous! That mug is right on time because one of my other mugs started ‘bleeding‘ the ink off & I was super bummed. An overall great #fallingforfallswap P.S. L😍VED the wrapping
