For today‘s #inspirednewyear challenge, my #admirable book is Jane Austen‘s Emma. Not only is it my favorite Austen novel, but Mr. Knightley is (in my humble opinion), Austen‘s most #admirable hero.💘


TheKidUpstairs That is a beautiful cover! 2y
Leelee08 @TheKidUpstairs I think so, too! I collect different additions of Emma, and this is my latest one. I think I paid 50 cents for it at a thrift store.😂😍 2y
TheKidUpstairs @Leelee08 what a great find! I've just started collecting different editions of one of my favourite books: 2y

Leelee08 @TheKidUpstairs That‘s awesome! It‘s fun to find all of the different covers.🥰 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Beautiful cover!! 💛 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @TheKidUpstairs Which ones do you have? Do you have a pic? I can‘t believe it took me so long to read this one!! 2y
TheKidUpstairs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I've only got two at the moment, I'll post a picture when I can. Unfortunately I've lent two out that I never got back. My former sister in law borrowed my favourite edition, and left my brother before I got it back 😭😭😭 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @TheKidUpstairs ughhhhh that‘s awful!!!!! 2y

I guess I'm too cynical to be a #NewYearNewYou person; I vibe much more with Sam Irby's take. That said, mad respect for folks who take this time of year to set goals and make resolutions! You are focused and motivated and totally #admirable! #InspiredNewYear #JumpIntoJanuary

A still from the 1957 (57!!) film version of the comedy of social mores in the early 20th century.

Some folks use January as a catalyst for change #newyearnewyou ! Some folks write resolutions on paper, share with loved ones, then pop them into a roaring fire. On Litsy, there is every kind of challenge you could want. And plenty of lovely people to cheer you on! Have you planned some #admirable changes to your life??

jb72 I have several changes I‘m hoping to make this coming year both health wise for me and environmental for the earth. 2y

TheKidUpstairs I'm hoping to make some sort of regular exercise and stretching a part of my routine. 2y
TheKidUpstairs @OriginalCyn620 thanks for the tag! I'm sure it'll happen a couple times, people are so used to tagging you 😉 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Drink more water (yuck!) walk more, read more 🤗🙌🏻📚 2y
TheKidUpstairs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks ugh. I'm trying to be better about drinking water, too. I hate drinking water during the day, but for some reason at about 8 pm I start craving it. So weird. 2y
Eggs @jb72 Good for you 👏🏻👏🏻 2y
Eggs @OriginalCyn620 Thanks for the reminder👍🏼 2y
Eggs @TheKidUpstairs Good for you👏🏻 2y
Eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @TheKidUpstairs Think of your body as a car engine—if you don‘t keep water in there, your car overheats and stops running ❣️All noncaffeine beverages count-sparkling water etc. also try lime or lemon wedge in cold water! Or herbal tea 🍵❤️❤️ 2y
ElizaMarie I have made my #21for21 list for things I want to accomplish this year. Some are one off things : like get a tattoo and others are more everyday changes like “drink 8oz of water in the AM before I check my phone“ ... Here is to a healthy and happy 2021! 2y
Eggs Sounds like a great plan! May you reach your goals 🤗👏🏻🤗. @ElizaMarie 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs I‘m going to buy some lemons and lime!! 🍋 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @ElizaMarie that‘s a great idea!! 🙌🏻 2y

There has been so little progress in these stacks over the past few months. I‘ve decided not to enter any giveaways for the foreseeable future. Since I failed my #bookbuyingban, I‘m reinstating that. Additionally, if I do acquire any books, I‘m going to try making sure they are of the Kindle variety!


Cinfhen #admirable 💕🙌🏻 5y
Traci1 Good luck. I know I need to ban myself from buying any more, but I am severely lacking in self control. 5y
DivineDiana It is sooooo hard! 🙁 5y

hilded I keep saying the same thing, still I'm failing miserably every month! Too many temptations 😔🤓 5y
emilyhaldi You have some good ones on that shelf!! 5y
laurieluna I've put restrictions on what I buy. So not an all out ban but lowering the number coming in each month. My tbr has turned into a monster in the past year so I'm just focusing on completing my Pratchett collection and building my Persephone collection each month until I can get it under control! Good luck in your endevours, it is hard 😬 xx 5y
Eyelit Same!!! 5y
