I've never tried a challenge of this sort before, so I'm not sure how far I will get. However, I printed out a blank map of Europe and will go from there. And I definitely have been wanting to reread the tagged book, so I have at least ONE idea so far! :-D

If you're interested, check out the hosts' pages for a link to the sign-up form!!

BarbaraBB Thank you for sharing. Looking forward to a year of reading and posting about European books! ❤️ 2d
Librarybelle Thanks so much for sharing! So glad you can join us! 1d
TheAromaofBooks @BarbaraBB @Librarybelle - thanks for hosting!! I've never tried this type of challenge, so I'm excited about it. And it's even inspired me to finally start cataloguing all my books onto LibraryThing so I can sort them by location more easily! 16h

BarbaraBB That‘s a nice job for the weekend, cataloguing your books 😍 16h
TheAromaofBooks @BarbaraBB - I'm always looking for new ways to track them haha I do technically have every title entered in a spreadsheet so that I can track if/when they have been read. But entering them via LibraryThing means I can also sort them by tags, which is pretty nifty. Over a thousand of them so it will take a little time!! 15h
Librarybelle I love LibraryThing, and I heavily use the tagging feature. Very time consuming, but also very rewarding! 15h
BarbaraBB @Librarybelle @TheAromaofBooks Me too, I love LT for cataloguing and tagging! 14h
TheAromaofBooks @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB - while we are on the topic of LT and tags, do either of you happen to know if it's possible to just copy community tags for a book onto mine? For instance, I add a book I own. I can look at the book on LT and see what tags other members have used for the same book. Is there a way to bulk add those tags, or do I just need to add tags for each title on my own? Lots of times other members have much better tags than I do! 4h
Librarybelle That‘s a good question! I‘ve not tried to do that on my account. I usually just retype any tag I like better than mine. If you do discover a way, please let me know. That would save some time! 4h
BarbaraBB I don‘t know either. But we can always ask @TimSpalding 2h

I went clothes shopping at Value Village yesterday and figured I should pick up some kid's books as well. There are three little free libraries near where I live that I've taken books from. The kid's books always seem to go first, so I thought these would be good additions.

Helen, thank you so much for the book! Sorry it‘s taken so long to post - it turns out I don‘t have much time to do anything that can‘t be done one-handed glued to a chair 😃. And yes, this is the perfect book! Neely is also very fond of squirrels so he was dead excited.

squirrelbrain Glad that you all like the book! Hope baby is doing well! 👶 ❤️ 2mo

I never read Heidi as a child, so I don‘t have any sentimental strings attached. I don‘t feel this one has aged as well as other children‘s books from the mid to late 1800‘s, like Little Women. It was also quite preachy, esp the 2nd half. It is a sweet story.

It did fill a lot of prompts!

LibrarianRyan I agree. 2mo
Cinfhen I‘m not sure if I could make it through a preachy tome written in the late 1800s 😜 sounds like torture 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen It wasn‘t too heavy-handed, and it was all in the 2nd half, so I was already committed by the time I reached it. I probably would have bailed if Heidi didn‘t ✔️ so many reading challenge prompts! And it‘s a quick read. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen It does make the very short list of books I won‘t recommend to Maya. 😂 2mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Who picked these prompts, anyway! 🤪👊🏻♥️ 2mo

arlenefinnigan I've never read this, it's a bit sad how 'Pollyanna' has become a bit of an insult 2mo

I started off thinking I‘d rate this read of it (an audio) 4 stars, I decided on 3.5 (good). I suspect it might have been better to read it, rather than listen; however, fond memories remain. I did enjoy the reminder of what actually happened in the book (although it does seem I missed bits and pieces, here and there – I suspect I wouldn‘t have if I‘d not listened to the audio).
