Happy Wednesday everyone 🤗🥳

#wondrouswednesday
@Eggs

🧡 one of my favorites is pusillanimous
🖤 I guess enough to complete the timeline necessary while retaining great story telling. I have loved Little House series (9?) and Anne of Green Gables (8?). I‘ve also loved series with 3-4 parts (Jenny Han, Neal Shusterman).
💚 I enjoy writing different kinds of poetry

1. David McCullough and Doris Kearns Goodwin, definitely. I‘ve met Wally Lamb and he seems super nice, so him too. And John Irving, although he seems a bit intimidating.
2. I want to hear the gossipy stuff about the presidents that McCullough and Kearns Goodwin are sure to know.
3. I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that my husband might divorce me if he heard an actual number.

@Eggs #wondrouswednesday

@ljuliel , here are mine! 😀

ljuliel First of all, you‘re going to have quite an educational meal. You picked some great ones. Do you think Doris and David are the sort to spill the beans and give their opinions of the current climate in DC .? Second, John Irving is probably really nice. He‘s a very handsome dude, so compliment him on his beautiful hair and you‘ll have him eating out of your hand. That‘d be so cool to meet Wally Lamb. He‘s great. 6d
ljuliel #3. You ornery thing. Use the line I do : How much do you spend on your hobby ? ( whatever that is) Then say you deserve it because you‘ve done his housework for X NUMBER OF YEARS. Never let ‘em see you sweat. (edited) 6d
Kaila-ann Your answer to the third question 🤣🤣. Any time I get grief for the state of my bookshelves I tell them that I could have much worse habits than reading. 6d

Eggs #3: we‘ll never tell 🥰🤗😂😂 6d
Amiable @ljuliel I absolutely think Doris would spill. I‘ve seen her talk in person and she isn‘t shy about expressing her opinions on the lack of leadership in the current White House. David might be more polite about it, but I feel like a bottle of wine could loosen his tongue. 🙂 And Wally and John are on the same page politically as well, so we could all commiserate. (And admire John‘s hair. Which IS awesome, I agree!) 6d
Amiable @ljuliel The housework claim won‘t work in mine—the hubby does as much (or maybe more) than I do. He‘s a firefighter who works rotating 24-hour shifts. I work FT with a long commute. He‘s actually home more often than I am, so he shops, cleans and does laundry as needed. Usually I just tell him that my book addiction keeps me off the streets and leave it with him wondering exactly what I‘d be doing ON the streets if I don‘t have my books. 😀 (edited) 6d
Amiable @Kaila-ann I agree! It‘s the best addiction to have, if you‘re going to have one. 😀 6d
Amiable @Eggs Great! Then I‘ll whisper the truth: (when we moved last year, I packed up 27 boxes of books. So ...a lot. 😬) (edited) 6d
Eggs @Amiable oh Amy 🤗😂🤣 6d
ljuliel Funny ! It keeps you off the streets. 😂. I‘m not judging, but it conjures up a picture of you in spike heels, fishnet hose, black leather skirt, and a Madonna SHIRT ? If that‘s what they‘re called. Anyhow, good answer. And it‘d be great to have someone do their half of the housework ! Although I don‘t work, the hubster does, so the house is sorta my territory. 6d

1) JKR, Neil Gaiman, Laini Taylor, Leigh Bardugo, Agatha Christy, Umberto Eco,...
2) If you were to start writing your first book again, would you change anything about the writing process, or the book's content?
3) I'd guess about 500 books, plus books for teaching, cookbooks, my kids' books. I'd hazard the guess that we have over 1.000 books in our flat
4) Hello to my most recent followers @Schlinkles @MrMisterMeditate @kradebaugh

@Eggs #WonerousWednesday
1. Sarah MacLean, but it‘d have be like over a meal or something protracted enough for me to calm down and have a functioning vocabulary! I‘m always a mess when I meet authors I love in person 😅
2. What publications/blogs/podcasts would you suggest writers/aspiring writers read/listen to?
3. In the neighborhood of 500, give or take 50? Or, to quote my husband, “Too damn many!”
4. @clpreston @pygmywarrior @RealLifeReading

Too many to even go into 🙈
When will we get Lassiter‘s book?

3. Approximately 3000, in my defence I have two libraries in my house 📖 📖

#WonderousWednesday @Eggs
1. Adrian McKinty, Jane Casey, Robert Goddard, Peter May.
2. Are you ever worried that you would run out of ideas to write about? I would ask all of them the same question.
3. After I would buy my books from thrift stores or library sales, I would add them to my Book Crawler App. I stopped adding books when I got to 10,000 books and my husband was afraid our house would burn down. I whittled them down to about 5,000. lol

ljuliel Thanks for the tag Eadie. I‘ll do mine shortly. Wow 😯.....10.000 books ! Our town library probably doesn‘t own that many 😊 1w
EadieB @ljuliel Definitely was a little crazy! 1w
ljuliel Your dinner guests would sure be fun to listen to with the accents. Adrian McKinty‘s is especially nice ! 1w

Clwojick 5,000! I'm jealous! I'd image I have under 1,000 still. I simply don't have the room in my apartment - although I sure wish I did. 😻 1w
EadieB @ljuliel I know but the British, the Scottish and the Irish write the best mysteries. 1w
EadieB @Clwojick I don't have room for all my books in my house either that's why I am still dwindling them down and trying to read as many as I can as I get rid of them after I read them. 1w
ljuliel Eadie, could you recommend a couple to start off with ? I‘m highly lacking in the mystery area. 1w
Crazeedi @EadieB yes to the mystery writers 1w
Texreader Good question to ask. I‘d also ask where they get their ideas in the first place! 1w
Eggs Great questions! Now I see why you read all day everyday 👍🏼😂 1w
EadieB @Texreader Yes, that‘s a good question too! 7d
EadieB @ljuliel I would start with Peter May‘s Blackhouse series and Ann Cleeves Shetland Island series. 7d
ljuliel Thanks Eadie. 💕. I‘ll go see what I can find from those 2. 7d
EadieB @ljuliel Peter May‘s books are called The Lewis Trilogy (Blockhouse is book 1). His chinese series is good too and he has a French series. I love all his books actually so just read what you can find. 7d
ljuliel Thanks Eadie. I‘ll go search right now while it‘s fresh on my mind. I‘ve spent all morning replying to posts. 🙂 7d
ljuliel Bingo. ✨✨Got the first in each of the series you mentioned. 7d
EadieB @ljuliel Nice! Hope you enjoy them! 7d

1* dead: L. M. Montgomery. Living: Kristin Hannah
2* Who is/was your favorite author while growing up? Also, esp. for KH-do you sob while writing like we do when we‘re reading your books?
3* approximately 460. But 100s on my kindle

Crazeedi Thanks for tag!❤ 1w
arubabookwoman When my RL book club read The Nightingale, we were able to connect by phone with KH, and she participated in the discussion with us for about an hour. One of our members just randomly contacted her publisher and arranged it. Apparently not a totally uncommon occurrence. 7d

Gissy @mabell I haven't sent the box because I had some problems with Amazon.😡In the first package, some books came with damages, today I received an incomplete order. I wrote them an email🙄As soon I receive the item I will send you the box. So sorry for that😔Some of those items in that order were for a swap and I'm also late because of them. I hope you can understand. 2w
mabell @Gissy I‘m so sorry you are having problems with Amazon! I‘ve had things arrived damaged before, and it is so frustrating, especially when it is for a swap. But please don‘t worry, it‘s just lots of fun to send and receive! 😄 The last item for your box just arrived, so I‘ll be sending yours very soon. Just to make sure, should I still send to the address I have (your old address)? 2w

#wondrouswednesdays

Joined: July 2016!

More books since I joined Litsy!

2019 Favorite Author: Angie Thomas! (Subject to change at any time!), but overall it‘s definitely Shauna Niequist. She could write the story of my life!

Most Read/Favorite Genre: For 2019 I have a hunch it‘s faith-based books.

How‘d I get started with Litsy: I think it was just a random App Store search for something that would allow me to save quotes in one place!

Chelseabillups30 If you‘re tagged: Create a post that includes when you joined Litsy, if you‘ve read more or less books since joining, favorite author, favorite genre, how you got started w/ Litsy. Ready? GO! 3w

1. I think it was March 2018 so about 18 months ago!

2. I think I saw someone refer to it in a comment on goodreads? No idea who tho

3. Probably the same amount but I‘ve been much more thoughtful about it

4. I read a really wide range of genres or at least I try to but I‘m loving classics and politics rn, Naomi Klein is my fave

5. I remember following @Mitch very early!

-I think it was as December 2018.
-I joined a book group on fb, think it was through buzzfeed. I regretted that decision because of the constant posts but found out about Litsy.
-I‘ve read more. I definitely have added to tbr & found more audiobooks because of Litsy.
-still HF, YA, and fiction. Still have same fave authors, but I‘ve read more new authors to me this yr.

🔸️I joined Litsy in Feb '18
🔸️I was looking for an app to document my reading habits & to save my tbr
🔸️Reading more coz litsy introduced me to hundreds of like minded people, & there's no pressure of posting everyday like Instagram
🔸️My all time fav is horror, but nowadays I read a lot of middle grade too. Fav authors are Neil Gaiman, Ania Alhborn, Alice Hoffman to name a few

Happy Wednesday! Anybody can tag along! #wondrouswednesday @Eggs

Eggs Thanks for joining in 📚💕🤗 3w

?May 2019
? I heard about Litsy through readathons (Dewey's, 24in48), but didn't join until I saw through LibraryThing that it was newly available on the web.
? About the same, I think.
?Goodness, I couldn't say. I read all over the place. I really like strong, literary horror and fantasy, but it's difficult to find.
?"know" in the online sense is tough for me to define.

3. Night auditor for Super 8. Dead most of my shift so I got tons of reading done, and got paid for it lol.

2. Going home at the end of the day!

3. Probably my current one, but it‘s not without its challenges.

3. Hmm, working at an ice cream shop (all you can eat ice cream 🤤)

1. Not really Halloween, but my favorite scary film is Rosemary's Baby.

2. Watching my kids address challenges and get frustrated, then seeing their triumph when the lightbulb goes off.

3. Best job was as an editor at a drug company, but my vocation is being a parent. It's the very best fit for me at this point in my life and the most meaningful and satisfying (and challenging) work I've ever done.

4. ❤️❤️❤️

1. Yes 🦇 This year planned with a (Bluenotes) winged bat onesie, for handing out candy at our new townhouse.
2. Cheerleader version of Wednesday, for an October laugh at home. 😅 The Addams dresses tend to run a bit short, going best with a mall shop cheer skirt.
3. My dad is an artsy expert at pumpkin carvings. I'll sure post his next styles! 🎃

Thanks for the tag, @Eggs

I‘m not a fan of Hallowe‘en, but here goes:

1. In a manner of speaking

2. I dress up as a grumpy old woman that doesn‘t answer the door to strangers (so, basically, the same as every other day!) 😉

3. I‘ve never decorated for Hallowe‘en. I barely even make an effort for Christmas. I truly am a grumpy old woman!

4. If you‘re reading this, consider yourself tagged!

1. Recent photo? A selfie-gone-wrong. 😆

2. Rainy day? I live in south Texas. What is “rain”? When it happens, I like to step outside, under cover, to smell the rain and marvel at water falling from the sky.

3. Weekend plans? A friend is holding a scrapbook “garage sale” where lots of crafters sell their extras for cheap. I always like to check out the deals there.

4. Thanks for the tag @TheSpineView

Texreader @Eggs I remember most rain in Austin fell during the short winter but always when it was cold enough to freeze and wreak havoc on everything. As a kid I remember Mom picking me up from school-in Pflugerville-when an ice storm hit and we spun so out of control we thought we were goners. We rarely rarely have ice in SA. Whew! 1mo
