Now that April's There

Wincy and Angus return to England after being evacuated to America for three years during the war, and find Oxford, their Professor father, their helpless-in-the-household mother all fairly stuffy. Their introduction of American slang, American household and family ways have their effects, and parents and children re-adapt on a better basis.

Posting a month-appropriate favorite, plus I‘m late in sharing my vintage copy of Four Gardens. #FurrowedMiddleBrowClub

EvieBee Gorgeous! 3mo
LeahBergen Ooo, your Four Gardens is gorgeous! And you‘ve reminded me to read the other one since you “made” me buy it last year (or the year before? 🤔)! 3mo
CarolynM How lovely! 3mo
Ruthiella Very pretty! 😍 3mo
batsy That's a gorgeous edition! 3mo

Here‘s my stacks for April #bookspinbingo! I haven‘t received Ancestor Trouble yet, so it gets a stand-in here that stands out a bit. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I don‘t think these will change before the numbers draw, but we‘ll see. 😬

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 3mo
Megabooks I really enjoyed O Beautiful. 3mo
Hooked_on_books @Megabooks I tried to squeeze that one in this month but it didn‘t happen. I‘m planning to start it after my current reads are complete. I‘m excited for it! 3mo

Thanks for hosting another awesome readathon, Andrew! My goals are very modest; I just want to read some each day. With work ramping up and some family stuff going on I‘ve had trouble focusing on anything. Maybe some consistency will be the kickstart that I need. 😊

Andrew65 Good luck 😊👍 1y

Kept waiting to post my list for April, hoping I will finish more books in March but it's not happening so here is my #BookSpin list. Also looking forward to #BookSpinBingo.


TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 1y
claudiuo Finished a couple more books since I posted my list so I'm updating it in place with just some library read placeholders. 1y
TheAromaofBooks I have soooo many library holds coming in & have no idea which ones are going to appear first!! 1y

I‘m still here, still reading, still (sort of) spinning. The slump is real. But I have a list for April that I‘m actually decently excited about! I‘m getting back into audiobooks at work, so hopefully that helps too.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Good luck!! 1y

Friends, I can't believe I'm saying this but - April is only a week away!!!!!! Life is flying by way too fast for me! As many of you know, I work at a greenhouse in the spring so this is one of my busiest times of year. Consequently, I'm not on Litsy as much, but I do check all of my tags. Please make sure you tag me directly as otherwise I probably will not see your posts!! ALSO for some reason Litsy is being a jerk about letting me comment on ⬇

TheAromaofBooks cont'd) on posts?? Sometimes the comments don't appear & I have to say the same thing more than once... & then later it shows up more than once! 😑 So I'm really sorry if you get the same comment on your post multiple times. Apparently Litsy hates me now!!

ANYWAY the actual point of this post is to remind all of you lovelies that it's time to start thinking about your #BookSpin list for April!! As a reminder, I make a NEW TAG LIST every month ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) SO if you want to participate in April (even if you aren't making a new list) PLEASE either comment on this post or tag me when you post your list!! I also appreciate it if you can specify whether or not you are participating in #BookSpinBingo, as that is its own tag list!! For this post, I'm tagging everyone who posted a March list OR who specifically asked to be tagged in April!! ⬇ 1y
TheAromaofBooks If you're new to this challenge, I have a master post about it that can be found here - https://www.litsy.com/web/post/1989556 - or feel free to ask questions!!

As always, I'm so happy to have all of you along for this challenge & can't wait to see what you're planning to read!!! Thanks for all your enthusiasm & I'll see you back here on April 2!!!

Thank so much for keeping this challenge alive even when you are so busy! I‘m in for both #BookSpin and #BookSpinBingo. I will post my April list soon, still trying to finish one book before the end of March.
MehoLovesReading I'll post my list soon I'm just trying to finish my double spin book before the end of march. 1y
kspenmoll Want to give this a try for April. Will post list soon. 1y
Crazeedi Yay!!! I'm getting my list together, I actually made 2 #BookSpinBingo's this month!! 1y
jessjess @TheAromaofBooks I'll give it a try, but we also work for a greenhouse doing cart breakdowns and you're right, these next three months are gonna be BUSY 1y
TheAromaofBooks @jessjess - I don't know about where you are, but last year the pandemic gave us more business than ever! Where I work we have a small (seasonal) retail area, but most of our stuff is grown for wholesale to larger garden centers (we focus on herbs & veggies). I seriously think we could have sold twice as many plants last year if we had had them! We already sent out our first orders for the year last week so things are getting intense!! 1y
meghathecloud I'll have to sit this round out too. I seem to have lost my reading mojo🙄 1y
TheAromaofBooks @meghathecloud - Sometimes life is that way!! Would you like me to keep you on the list to tag for May? 1y
Catherine_Willoughby I be involved in April's bookspin. Easter holidays 😁 1y
jessjess @TheAromaofBooks we (my husband and I) work for Rainbow Greenhouses in Alberta 1y
jessjess @TheAromaofBooks and yes! Last year was very busy (according to my husband, it was my first year) 1y
TheAromaofBooks @jessjess - Wow, that looks like a serious operation!! Our greenhouse is pretty tiny - only about 20 employees & 7 greenhouses. It's hard work but I do love this time of year when it's chilly outside but we're all warm & sunny & surrounded by plants!! 1y
aperfectmjk I plan to participate in April. Hopefully it will be a better month for me. 1y
jessjess @TheAromaofBooks yes, thank goodness I'm just a small coggle! I just get to break down the carts. It's great because it's outdoorsy, yet not so much front-facing, and I don't have to talk to a lot of folks. Plus it's good (and much needed) exercise, last year it was not uncommon to hit 35000 steps on my Fitbit 😊 1y
