An 80-year-old German man collected and stored over 70k books in a hidden library! And he didn‘t tell anyone about it!

I just want to tour his home. Look at the shelves on the ceiling!

JenDR I am not sure what I am more impressed by - collecting almost a 100,000 books secretly or the engineering and construction of his house to take the load of that sort of weight. 1w

Nice story about a child who has anxiety about sharing their dream careers. They have 3 ideas. And additional shame about their parents' jobs. But all I can think about is that there are schools that don't have their own library. I'm sure it's normal, but it just makes my heart ache. Every child should have access to a library and a teacher-librarian. Just my opinion.

I am very happy with 2022 reading results. I crossed over the number of books and the page number goals. I read 17 five 🌟 books, and with the help of Litsy I discovered many new authors and books to enjoy.

Happy New Year Everyone!! Onward to 2023!!
New Year New Reading Goals!!

Watergate: A New History | Garrett M. Graff
post image

My nonfiction goal for the year is 12, fell a little short this year. Mainly because I did the 800+ page Watergate book as a slow and steady for 5 months! #yearinreview #nonfiction #goals

ChaoticMissAdventures Wow that is a lot of Watergate! Did you learn a lot? 1mo
LeslieO @ChaoticMissAdventures I did! There was so much more than what was depicted in All the President‘s Men. So much more corruption. (edited) 1mo
LeahBergen I‘m going to have to count my NF reads of this year. You have me interested now! 😆 1mo
LeslieO @LeahBergen Do you do a lot of nonfiction? I think I need to up my game. 1mo
LeahBergen @LeslieO I read way more fiction and think I need to up my game a bit, too. 😆 I think I read probably 15 or 16 nonfiction reads this year? 1mo

5 cats meant my forest is limited to shelves the cats stay away from. I sort of miss my forest but I love my cats. My dream would be to add a Sunroom and use that for the forest in December #goals #holidayfriends

TheBookHippie SUNROOM. I‘d love one too! Plants!!! 1mo
Chrissyreadit @TheBookHippie I have to use my office at work- I know the cats would love a Sunroom and when I empty nest I‘m sure I will do that for them 😆😆😆😆 but December will be for me! 1mo
TheBookHippie @Chrissyreadit 🤣🤣🤣💯 1mo

I completed the Storygraph Reading Challenge, 150 books read and still 11 days left in the year. I'm hoping to make it 153-155 before I'm done. I still need 366 pages to meet my page count goal.

Ruthiella You can do it! 👍 2mo
wanderinglynn Congrats! 🎉 And you can get the last 366 pages! 2mo

Buenos días, fellow Littens! Good morning to you all ☺️ Buongiorno!

Here is my mini reading plan for the #NovelNovember #Readathon. Thank you so much for hosting, @Andrew65!

#Goals are to
• Complete reading "One Italian Summer" and jump into either "The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina" OR "Our Missing Hearts". Or BOTH! ?

Cont'd in comments ⬇️

Librariana (1 of 2)
• Read "Anne of West Philly" (graphic novel modern retelling of Anne of Green Gables) and then follow it up with either "Enemies" or "Hollow" (the latter is a library loan, so may have to tackle that one first!)
Librariana (2 of 2)
• Read 50 pages of "Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life" (this has proved to be kind of a dip in and out of sort of book; lots of little morsels for consumption!) as well as start both of the other 2 Non-fiction titles below. Spine Poems is a library loan, so gotta dive into that one soon!
• Attempt to read for more than 1 hour a day ?
