Seven books I‘d ideally like to read in the next seven weeks #booksIown

SamAnne Oh! That's a great list! You might want to throw in an uplifting or escapist book in there! Have read all except Spring (on my list). Loved Nickel Boys. Not sure I've fully recovered from Black Leopard Red Wolf--so violent and disturbing but beautiful writing. Flights I was mixed about but no doubt the writer is brilliant. Happy reading? (edited) 1mo

I bought this whole series from the fall library book sale. I am actually reading from my TBR list that I own. This rarely happens. #charlaineharris #librarybooksale #tbr #booksiown #readinginbed

alanacristin I'm trying to do that as well! Today I finished a book that's been in my house for a year and a half 🎉 progress! That series was pretty fun -- hope you enjoy it 😊 10mo
Vexingcircumstance @alanacristin I am enjoying it. I‘m on the last book now. I wish there were books in the series. 10mo
alanacristin @Vexingcircumstance agreed! The last book got my hackles up a bit but i wasn't ready to say bye to the quirky little town and its inhabitants 😚 10mo

Prior to #Litsy my bookshelves contained mostly picture frames and baskets, etc... Post Litsy they are are mostly filled with books! 📚 I still primarily read ebooks, but I love sitting on my sectional and looking at my growing home library! They‘re so pretty! 😍📚🤓 Many of the books on these shelves are from #BOTM, #litsyswaps, gifts, #bookoutlet, and #giveaways! Thank you all for your book recommendations, your kindness, and your generosity! 🤗

kgriffith I‘m headed in the opposite direction: I moved back to Maine from California with over 1,000 books. I purged ~300 before I started at LibraryThing in 2014, but working with people who read in my wheelhouses has meant WAY more books coming in than being read! So I‘ll be culling this spring in anticipation of a move this summer, and recently invested in a Paperwhite to join my Glowlight so I can go mostly digital with a few exceptions. 2y
Jess7 Ohhh my digital library has grown exponentially too! When I joined #litsy almost a year ago, I owned about 10 ebooks and maybe 10 physical books. I borrowed books through overdrive and read them on my paperwhite most often.... Since Litsy, I still do that, but I also have purchased nearly 500 ebooks from Amazon daily deals and have accumulated all of the physical books pictured. I lovingly #blameitonlitsy 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️🤗 @kgriffith @TheLibrarian 2y
kgriffith @Jess7 oh my gosh my jaw dropped like a frickin cartoon character‘s when I read how many books you owned pre-Litsy 🤣 That‘s AMAZING that you‘ve cultivated this hobby and curated your physical and digital libraries through Litsy, I love it! 2y

Another goal is read down the number of first in a series books I own. Once again, don't plan to finish it, but I'm going to give it go. #booksiown

Soubhiville Wow! 😲 2y
drokka I'd like to do something like this next year. I'm torn between all the book 1s, then 2s, finishing series I've started, or starting at 1 and ending at whatever was published by the time I get there. Either way, I should, hopefully make a dent in my TBR. 2y
LibrarianRyan @drokka I know. Hard to decide. 2y
