NeedsMoreBooks Thanks for playing 😊 2w
AppuNthebooks @Megabooks more an adventure sports enthusiast than someone committed to the sport. I‘ve zip-lined in Thailand and I‘ve done some rock climbing. 2w

1) I have a scar from mid-chest to groin. I probably own 50 lipsticks. I have a remote storage unit just for books.
2) Tagged. WTH was the big deal?
3) Yes
4) Too cold. If you're too hot, you can't just (legally) remove all your clothes; if you're too cold, you can snuggle up in more layers!
Thanks, @Alora #litsylearn

Alora Ouhhh 50 lipsticks?! Lol. Thank you for playing! I‘m going to guess that lie is that you have a remote storage unit for books?! 2w
TiredLibrarian @Alora You're too good at this! 💄💋😎 2w
Alora Hahaha yay! 😂 50 lipsticks?! Amazing! Lol💄 2w

1. I speak four languages, I have no siblings, I can't take ibuprofen
2. Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell
3. At signings etc, not in ordinary life. Neil Gaiman is probably the most impressive one.
4. Too hot. I'm cold blooded and never melt even during a mild PNW winter.

Alora I‘m going to guess the lie is that you‘ve never ate a PB&J sandwhich?! 3w

DaveGreen7777 Hmmm... 🤔 I‘m going to guess never pumping gas is the lie? 3w
JenlovesJT47 @DaveGreen7777 nope! I don‘t drive so I have never found myself needing to pump gas 😬 3w
Alora Hahaha I was thinking maybe you were allergic to PB so thats why you didn‘t eat it 😂 Not allergic to shrimp?! 3w
JenlovesJT47 @Alora nope! I‘m blessed and not allergic to any food. Most people don‘t believe me when I tell them I‘ve never eaten a PB&J or pumped gas before 😬 3w
Alora Hahaha my grandma has never pumped her own gas (but she‘s also 80 lmao) and whenever she goes to a gas station they pump it for her. Or I had to do it for her one day...which was my first time doing it 😂😂😂 3w

Alora Me too! However, my cousin spoiled dumbledore dying while I was on like the second or third book back when they came out. So I got all mad and never finished them. I want to read them all now that it‘s been so long and I‘ve seen all the movies. 3w
LiljaPleasant @Alora I know everybody says it... But seriously... The books are sooooo much better 3w
Alora I can believe it :) Maybe I‘ll ask santa for a nice box set for Christmas and finally read them lol. 3w
LiljaPleasant @Alora sounds like a plan 👍 3w

3. Yes-I‘ve had more opportunities the last few years.
4. Too hot. @Alora #litsylearn

Alora Very neat that you went to Delia Owen‘s signing! 😍 Super jealous. 3w
Alora I‘m going to guess that the lie is you haven‘t travelled outside the us?! Thank you for playing!! 😁💙 3w
Scochrane26 @Alora you‘re right. I haven‘t been too far out of the US though, I have many places I want to travel to. 3w

1)a- I've dyed my hair every color except black and green
b- I have a vocal range from 1st Soprano all the way to tenor
c- When speaking to people with accents I (unintentionally) mimic it back after a few minutes
2) Catcher in the Rye. Seriously thought my English teacher hated me with how slowly we worked through it, and I just hated it so bad.
3)Yes! Jenny Lawson & Grace Helbig
4)Probs too cold, you can always layer

Alora Thank you for playing!! 💙💙 is the lie that you unintentionally mimic peoples accents?! Lol 3w
AprilMae @Alora no its the vocal range. I have the high notes (definitely a 1st Soprano) but I bottom out in the alto range! I've actually been told I collect accents lol 3w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘m going to say b is a lie! 🤷🏼‍♀️ (edited) 3w

1a) I was born 3 weeks late.
1b) I only have 2 first cousins.
1c) I played clarinet in middle school band.

2) Pachinko by Min Jin Lee—thought I‘d LOVE this one but ended up DNFing it.

3) Hmmm...well, I met Rachel Maddow and she‘s written a couple of books!

4) That‘s a hard one, I‘m really sensitive to both...but I guess cold because you can always bundle up more, but if it‘s hot, it doesn‘t matter how little you wear, haha 😆


Alora Hello!! 💙💙 Thank you for playing! 😁 love your answers lol 3w
Alora Is the lie that you were born 3 weeks late?! 3w
alisonrose @Alora Nope, that‘s true—just ask my poor mom, LOL 3w

Jee_HookedOnBookz Kayla tq so much for your lovely package! I love it! I appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness 💕😘 3w
Jee_HookedOnBookz About no 2 I thought I was the only one! I attempted the book twice! And I just couldn't get into it I don't know why 😭😭 3w
Kaylamburson I'm so glad it arrived this time!! Phew, hahaha. And so happy you love it. And right? It's just so long. I finally forced myself to finish and there was no point to it! @Jee_HookedOnBookz 3w

Jee_HookedOnBookz @Kaylamburson omg really?? At least you managed to finish it... I just couldn't 😔don't think I'll try it again.. 3w
Kaylamburson Not worth trying again. I only did because it was for a book club. @Jee_HookedOnBookz 3w
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Kaylamburson OK! 😊Tq for letting me know💕 3w
Alora Is reading every jodi picoult book the lie?! 😱 I‘ve never read one! Which is the best in your opinion?! 3w
Stacypatrice @Alora Jodi P is awesome! Try “Small great things.” @Kaylamburson - I know you must of broke cement because I have a feeling that you‘re a badass 💪🏼😘 3w
DaveGreen7777 I‘ll guess that being captain of the cheerleading team as a sophomore is the lie? 🤔 3w
Kaylamburson @alora you're right! I have read many of her books, but def not all of them. Small Great Things and Salem Falls are probably my favorites. 3w
Kaylamburson Hahaha, thanks @Stacypatrice. And you're right, I have broken cement for my black belt test. It was when I was 9 though and haven't tried since! 3w
Kaylamburson Good guess, @DaveGreen7777 , but that one is actually true! We were quite a small club team, and I'm the only one that had cheer competition experience 🙈. It wasn't pretty, lol 3w
Alora @Stacypatrice @Kaylamburson Thank you! I will try small great things :) 3w
