This is so true in my life! This bookish life chose me 🥰 Some of my earliest and fondest memories involve books, the library, and reading! This bookish life really did choose me and, books just find their way to me ☺️

I checked on both of my little free libraries after work tonight; I knew I had to add a few books. When I opened the door, the lights popped on revealing this sweet little package for "Book lover". I opened it to find this special book and note. I have no idea who it's from but I sure hope they know that I am honored to be entrusted with its care! I will read it and treasure it ❤️

Doing the bookish discussion question of the day early today 😁! I‘m in #NYC hanging out with an author friend who is in from Scotland to participate in a 1-on-1 debate at a downtown forum this evening, so I have to conserve battery best I can 🙈.

Here it is: Are you friends with any authors?! #BookTalk

TheSpineView Yes, but just by email. I have a few indie authors that email now and then just to stay in touch. 2w
Bookwormjillk Only in my mind 2w
Reviewsbylola I wish! 2w

ljuliel Absolutely . (not). I‘ve emailed a few who‘ve replied. Linda Castillo, Larry Baker and , James Renner . If I could BE friends, I‘d choose David Sedaris and Amy Vowell. They‘d be a hoot together. 2w
tournevis Yes. 2w
Lcsmcat Mostly poets, oddly enough. 2w
TheHeartlandBookFairy Absolutely! I still have to pinch myself sometimes 😅☺️😁 #MyBookishLife 2w
Palimpsest I‘m friends/ acquaintances with people who have published books, mostly professors and poets. 2w
LibrarianRyan How about related to one. My cousin Sara is an author. Not my type of books but that‘s okay. I was asked by her mother this summer what I thought of her newest. Apparently she saw my name on the reviewer list. I declined to review the book. Just no! 2w
Scochrane26 I feel like I‘ve stalked a couple of local authors enough for them to be friends (just kidding). I do see David Arnold at enough author events that he recognizes me. I have a friend who has some writing talent and I could see her being a published author one day. (edited) 2w

Using my lunch hour doing one of my favorite things besides eating lol Getting in a little extra reading time 😊 I listened to my audiobook on the way to a nearby park, now reading my actual book, and then I'll listen to my audiobook on the way back to work 😅 #ThankfulThursday #MyBookishLife

December reading goals 😁. Can you tell I love holiday books? I'm actually hoping to get to a few more that are not shown here but we'll see. There are three books on the Kindle that need to be read for reviews plus the stack here and one from November (not shown) that I didn't get to yet. Tis the season 😁🎄📖

Sunday #mugshot on this cold, snow-covered, but currently sunny Sunday ?. Back from a lovely vacation and mostly caught up on everything except for reading and giving the fur kids a little extra attention! Time to "work" on that I guess lol ?

Stayed up late to read the last third of this brilliant police procedural last night - recommended!

charl08 Such a great author - have you seen the story about his new book? https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/jul/08/adrian-mckinty-interview-crime-nov... 2mo
RachelAmphlett @charl08 yes, thanks - I‘ve known Adrian a while now - The Chain is excellent - have you read it? 2mo
charl08 Good stuff. I had his McGinty books recommended to me, they are so good. Was really shocked he was thinking about giving up writing (and very glad he didn't). Waiting for The Chain from the library! 2mo

Day 10 #FallIsBooked - Sweater

I‘ve only been back in the UK for a year after 13 spent in Brisbane and from September I really feel the cold in the spare room I use as an office. Snuggling up into a sweater is a must - as is a cup of tea to keep warm!
