Two holiday reads so far, so a few Bingo boxes checked!!

#WinterGames #MerryReaders @Clwojick @StayCurious

Clwojick Woohoo! I love that you printed this to use in a bullet journal. 😍 2d
TheAromaofBooks @Clwojick - I borrowed some ideas from @SaturnDoo and printed off calendars to track this month's photo challenges, too. I mayyyy have gotten carried away and created a bullet journal just for Litsy stuff!! 😆 2d
SaturnDoo @TheAromaofBooks wooohooo I'm so happy you're borrowing ideas and journaling with me ❤❤❤❤ I have 1.5 bujos dedicated just for Litsy/reading. 1 of them I'm just trying to use up the last few pages in it. You made me 😊 2d

Clwojick My bujo has maybe 5 pages that arnt Litsy related lol. It quickly went from a day planner to a Litsy tracker 😂 2d
Clwojick @TheAromaofBooks if you don‘t mind tapping in some pages and print offs I can send you a few small things with your Christmas card? I have LOADS. you too, @SaturnDoo ❤️ 2d
SaturnDoo @Clwojick thank you!!! That would be awesome!!!I was just saying yesterday that I've never done the taping in or washi tape but I'm sure going to buy some washi tape and give it a whirl. It will be a #blameitonlitsy and @Clwojick and @TheAromaofBooks 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 2d
TheAromaofBooks @Clwojick that is so thoughtful!! I am actually all about taping stuff in my journal because I have no artistic talent at all haha I never turn down any kind of journaling supplies because I have a serious addiction. If it's easier, you can also totally email me pdfs? I know mailing anything heavier than a regular letter between Canada & US can get pricey, so it's whatever works for you! And @SaturnDoo I accept full blame for any washi tape ⬇ 2d
TheAromaofBooks ...addictions. I MAY have sent you a small package yesterday! 🤗 2d
SaturnDoo @TheAromaofBooks OMG really??? You didn't have to do that...you just brought😢 of joy to my eyes. ❤❤❤🥰🥰🤗🤗🤗 I am so glad we started chatting here. I've really enjoyed our chats and your company 🌞🌞🌞 2d
TheAromaofBooks @SaturnDoo - I had some extras around because I'm totally addicted to washi tape, and just felt like it would be fun to send them your way!! It was going to be a surprise but... I'm pretty terrible at surprises!!! 😂 2d
Clwojick Also 1 pt 😉 1d

This was a fascinating listen, some things I had read about or knew about from other sources and many I did not know. The style is conversational and humorous.

I finished listening while taking a walk and feeding the calves at my sister‘s while visiting this weekend.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘ve seen this one on here before, it always look so tempting! 6d
Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa This was absolutely a #BlameitonLitsy choice. It‘s a very light and fun listen for something that could be a heavy topic. 5d

Started this one on Kobo last night. I'm excited to complete the Farseer trilogy, and am so thankful to all the Littens who have trumpeted their love for Robin Hobb. I don't think I'd have picked up these books without the Litsy love, and I've been so engrossed in Fitz's world. #BlameitonLitsy

I'll be using this towards #Booked2019 because I've been reading enough real world political intrigue in the news, so it's fantasy world intrigue ftw!

Cinfhen Good choice!!! 1w
Kalalalatja Yay! So happy you are enjoying the series! 1w
BarbaraTheBibliophage Can‘t blame you for staying away from real life for this prompt! ♥️📚👊🏻 1w

This was a #blameitonlitsy read. For months I waited to find it at the library and it was worth it. The German title translates as The horror of early medicine, and it was indeed a horror for patients and doctors, until anesthesia was invented and Joseph Lister took up the fight against infections. One caveat: you should have a strong stomach for the book.

readordierachel It's wild to think about how far we've come since then. This was a fascinating read. 2w
PickwickPlockPlock @readordierachel I knew that the times were bad for patients, but I had no idea that the medicine students suffered and were traumatised, too. 2w

Anything stay with you?
Anything you learned ?
Need to discuss ??

Do you look at the assassination differently now?


Mitch Really liked this pick - i probably wouldn't have read it if it wasn't for this group - and i enjoyed it - another #blameitonlitsy ! Love the characters and thought the historical setting was really pitch perfect! 2w
Librarybelle It turned into a good read for me! While it has the assassination as the backdrop, it hasn‘t really changed my thoughts or feelings on the assassination. Instead, I will take more of the “mobster feeling with a more human touch” away with me. I picked it up from #BOTM for the historical aspects, but honestly not one I would read on my own normally. Thanks ladies! 😁 2w
Sargar114 @Librarybelle me too! I enjoy things of the Kennedy era, and while that‘s the backdrop, it‘s not really the bulk of the story. Not one I would normally read, but a fantastic story that I really enjoyed. And of course the discussions 🥰 2w

I have been working very hard to clear my shelves so I rewarded myself with these purchases at my library book sale. Tagged had been on my #tbr for a long time. Carnegie's Maid is a #blameitonlitsy as I saw it featured on a post before I checked out and went back to grab it! Christmas movie and book are for #wintergames how weird is this movie going to be?! @Laughterhp

Laughterhp That‘s awesome! I‘m glad I could influence your purchase 😂😂 Also that movie looks super weird! Hope you enjoy it! 2w
marleed Oh fun. I love supporting Library Book sales. This week I learned our Friends of the Library earns over $100k for the public library. ...I also realize it‘s much easier for me to part with books for which I‘ve thrifted vs those I‘ve paid full or near-full price. 2w
Clwojick hah! that movie looks amazing! And i love all of Brenda Novak's books. 2w

Thanks to @Andrew65 for these #MaeveBinchyBuddyRead I love reading her books again. Fun fact this was a #BOTM pick in 2009. I missed reading this at the time of publication (I almost died in 2007 and 2011 and was very sick through 2012) I am enjoying this read very much. It‘s very soothing in the storytelling way.
So thank you Andrew I would have not thought to pick her up again. #blameitonlitsy in the best way. ❤️

Andrew65 She is a great storyteller, and this is one of her very best in my opinion. And thanks 😍🥰 Those waffles are making me hungry! (edited) 2w
marleed I sure hope your health is on the right track now! 2w
TheBookHippie @marleed I‘ve made huge life changes and I have to live differently. ALLL worth it. I just went through all my doctor appointments and I‘m doing very well. ❤️ It‘s been wonderful not having to be in hospitals these past 7 years. 2w

How to Stop Time | Matt Haig

I finished this #blameitonLitsy audiobook on the road today and glad for the recommendation. The premise is that certain folks age very slowly, the mc in current times is 400+ years old. He has a daughter whom he has lost track of and much of the book he is trying to find her across centuries, while also trying to deal with a potential new love and manage old friendships. The story continually kept my interest. The narrator was terrific.

CWilson Maybe I should try listening to this! I borrowed a digital copy from the library and I DNFed it at like 50 percent so maybe the audio will keep my interest more! 2w
Texreader @CWilson I‘m sorry to hear that and have been wondering if I‘d have done the same thing with the book. I thought the narrator was terrific and really kept it moving. So maybe try the audio. Good luck! 2w

Skip Beat!, Volume 1 | Yoshiki Nakamura
post image

#inspiredbylitsy (since I've decided I don't like the negative vibe I get for myself when I say #blameitonlitsy) and @xicanti.

For me this first volume is a pick on the so-so end of the spectrum, but sometimes the first volume of a #manga can be that way. I love the determination of the main character and I'm already in love with the president of the agency. I had several laugh-out-loud moments. I'll definitely read the next two volumes.

xicanti Lory is fabulous! I think he might be the most flamboyant character in all of fiction. I wasn‘t initially hooked by this first volume, either, but the next two pulled me in. Nakamura‘s layered approach pays off in a big way as everything rolls along, too. 4w
Sace @xicanti I loved him in the second volume too. I think I'm getting used to the writing maybe? I've been reading more straightfoward manga with fewer asides and thoughts so sometimes I'm having trouble following who is saying/thinking what. Does that make sense? 4w
xicanti @Sace definitely. This last reread really hammered home for me that SKIP BEAT! is a hard manga. Nakamura often juggles three or four narrative streams at once, between the dialogue, the characters‘ surface thoughts, and their deeper observations. It takes a bit to get used to. 4w
Sace @xicanti that makes me feel better. I might give it more that 3 volumes. 4w
Sace *than 3 4w
