My pick for the Exemplary Badge in the round one catchup for the #Bookemon read-a-thon. I found it just ok. Not a bad read but not one I plan to pick up again.

Book #100: I rather enjoyed Black Beauty. I thought it had an interesting perspective, which was looking at a horse's life through the eyes of the horse. It didn't have the ridiculous "animals talking" thing that a lot of books have, but I felt it was rather natural. The way a horse would act if you could get inside it's head. You saw his (Black...

Day 3!

@Heatherfeather would you like to join the #covercrush party??

sudi Love this one 😍 2mo
Heatherfeather Oh man would love to but I have totally overextended myself and I can't be on here every day. But thank you for thinking of me!!!! 😘 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @Heatherfeather - no worries!! It's taken me several days to post three covers, since I haven't been able to give Litsy daily attention haha Hope things calm down a bit for you!! 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @sudi - I really love these Pantone covers, although I don't always think they get the color/shade exactly right. But it's pretty hard to mess up Black Beauty 😂 I collect Black Beauty editions... I could have done #7days7covers with just BB covers!! 2mo

I decided to revisit this old classic today while I worked around the house. And while the story was as I remembered it, this particular Audible version isn‘t one I‘d recommend. Not the best quality. Still, it was good to reread this.

The book Black Beauty, is an eternal favourite, and I used to love watching the TV series the Adventures of Black Beauty. My uncle once asked, at a crucial moment, “is this a sad bit?”. From then on, my family always asked, during the show, “is this a sad bit?”, or “is this a happy bit?”🙄 Whichever it was, I was invariably in tears...

All of my local branch libraries have a little stash of books for sale .I think what made me buy it, I was a bit of a horsey girl & read this many times.It is an old Whitman in beautiful shape. The time of year between Thanksgiving & Christmas always fills me with memories,thinking of friends,family, who we were & what we might yet become.Books have been a huge part of all of that ,I bet it is the same for many of you treasured Litsy friends.

MrsMalaprop I recently bought an old copy of this at a charity book sale to read to my 9y/o. He‘s loving it so far & I‘m loving sharing it with him 😊💕. 12mo

2. Pie for main course and cake for dessert? That‘s such a tough one but maybe cake wins by a nose.
3. Knitting and spinning and many other crafts to a lesser extent
4. I love green surroundings...hills and trees so...Vermont?...Maine?...I loved London and would love to experience the English countryside...hell I don‘t know

3. Little Space Girl - OMG this memory made me laugh so much. This song tells a silly story and my brothers and I used to act out (minus the kissing part) the story - brothers that used to fight with me most of the time. I felt like an actress and a star at ~ 5years old

"Do you know why this world is as bad as it is?... It is because people think only about their own business, and won't trouble themselves to stand up for the oppressed, nor bring the wrong-doers to light... My doctrine is this, that if we see cruelty or wrong that we have the power to stop, and do nothing, we make ourselves sharers in the guilt."

These are some of the Penguin Threads editions of popular classics, the book covers inspired by the aesthetic of handmade crafts. Sketched in a traditional illustrative manner, the final covers are sculpt embossed and present full front and reverse hand-stitched designs. I don‘t own, but covet these. 💚💗🖤❤️

You know, this is one of my all-time favorite stories. When I was very young I had a cartoon version of this story that I watched constantly. I now own the live-action film. I know the story like the back of my had. But I'd never read the book... til now!

So I haven't posted in an age, mostly because I've been overwhelmed with stress and a pretty aggressive reading slump brought on by said stress. But today I finished my last masters degree class of the semester and decided to celebrate. When I saw this gorgeous copy of one of my all time fav books as a kid I had to splurge! I can't wait to see how the original stacks up against the Great Illustrated Classics edition. Those pics still haunt me 😱

These were $12 from another Beaumont St. op shop. I am a bit obsessed with Geraldine Brooks at the moment. Black Beauty is for my step daughters who love ‘horseback riding‘.
P.S. The older I get the more I like candles.

If I am in any a way cliche, it may be my horsey girl era .Instead of dolls , Breyer Horses. We had real horses in the family , spent summers on my Grandparents farm. They both remembered when horses were still workers on the farm, that time had passed but my grandfather insisted they still mattered to his farm. Today is Anna Sewells birthday, & her book I have read many times.This Whitman classic edition was the one I had ,must be in a box ?

What a great way to start my #YearOfRereads. All the feels and tears. She does such a wonderful job showing the ways a horse is treated and what people should do when seeing cruelty happen. Once again I cried through the whole last chapter. This time I listened to the audiobook and the narrator was fantastic 🐎🐎🐎🐎🐎/5.

At night with my 5 year old, we read a few picture books and a chapter of this. She gets bored with it sometimes and it gets shelved. Then she remembers and wants multiple chapters a night.
