I did my first display at the library today! Inspired by #readthemoviesswap. Thanks Littens!!

Freespirit Wow great choices @ReadingDownUnder ! 9mo
ReadingDownUnder @Freespirit Is it wrong to hope no one takes one out?!? They‘ll ruin the display! Can always fill with Harry Potter, I guess. 9mo
Freespirit No..I would feel the same...another good one is The Martian😊 9mo

Merry Christmas Littens! Great presents, good lunch, and Santa came around in the fire truck. Got sprayed with the fire hose TWICE. Now time to follow the little fella‘s example. 🎄📚😴

A book club pick by a Scottish friend. Very fast read. Should be an interesting discussion as a few former teachers in my group. I already know one woman was surprised there was so much about sex!! 🤷🏻‍♀️ Any insights from Littens to bring to the discussion? #bookclubread #modernclassics #aussiereaders #aussielittens

gradcat It‘s one of those rare books where the movie was actually better...doesn‘t happen very often.... 12mo

Fahrenheit 451 | Ray D Bradbury
post image

Onviously a classic but not my cup of tea. Some phenomenal quotes, though! #aussielittens #aussiereaders #catsoflitsy #fFahrenheit451 #raybradbury

CarolynM I read this for the first time earlier this year (don't know how I hadn't read it before) and although it wasn't my usual thing I have to say I thought it was brilliant. 12mo
Marilyncjackson This was the scariest book I have ever read. I love Bradbury though. Sorry you didn‘t like it, I read it in one sitting. 12mo
ReadingDownUnder @Marilyncjackson I could definitely see the brilliance in it. I just don‘t enjoy dystopian novels. I did love Handmaid, though! I like this world. 😛 12mo
Marilyncjackson @ReadingDownUnder I don‘t like dystopian very much either. I didn‘t like Handmaid‘s Tale 😝. But I could see the brilliance in that novel. That‘s why I love Litsy we can all find something good even if we didn‘t like something else. Here‘s to reading 📖🍸 12mo
BooknerdsLife @Marilyncjackson Couldn't agree with you more about Litsy🤗 12mo

Victoriahoperose I just read this! So crazy. The film was pretty good too! Welcome to litsy @LuckyDuck 😊 12mo
Book_Lust I‘m reading this right now! 12mo
LuckyDuck Thank you for your welcomes. I must confess, I did an awful thing in lending out this book. When this book came out it blew me away. I lent it to a good friend who was pregnant with her first child. She has never let me forget that she is forever fearful that she has somehow impacted her child .....oops! Needless to say, Lionel Shrive remains one of my favourite authors to this day. She never fails to tackle hard core issues full on. (edited) 12mo
ReadingDownUnder @LuckyDuck OMG! I have to read it now to see what you did to your friend‘s baby!!! 😂 12mo

Not sure I will keep going with this. Not doing anything for me yet. Anyone read it? #aussiereaders #libraryhaul #isitgood? #aussielittens

Victoriahoperose I liked it a lot. It took a little bit to get into, but I think you may find it worthwhile if you keep going! 12mo
MrsMalaprop Liked Ove, but haven‘t read any others yet. 12mo
BookaholicNatty I loved this book but yes it did take a little while to get into it. 12mo

Repost for @ReadingDownUnder. She wants to find the Australian Littens and I don't want to start tagging people because I'll just forget someone. So Australian Littens, identify yourselves and say hello🙂🇦🇺

ReadingDownUnder Awesome! Thanks! Anyone doing the #StuffedStockingSwap? #aussielittens (edited) 13mo
ReadingDownUnder @LapReader Yay! I was afraid I‘d be the only one!! 🤶 13mo

thegreensofa I‘m Australian @ReadingDownUnder sooooo happy to find other Australian Littens! 👋🏻 Thank you Carolynm! 😃👏🏻 13mo
ReadingDownUnder @thegreensofa Is there one # you all use to stay connected? I‘m still trying to figure out how to do stuff on here. Like, can you follow a #? How do you remember them all? I‘m hopeless! 😛 13mo
MrsMalaprop Hi there @ReadingDownUnder 👋. I‘m in Perth. 🇦🇺 13mo
thegreensofa @ReadingDownUnder sadly there‘s no way to follow a hashtag, it needs to be keyed afresh each time in the search hashtag button. I don‘t know of any particular # myself to follow us, great idea though! 13mo
MrsMalaprop By the way I use #ozfiction when I post about fiction by Australian writers. I‘m not aware of any other way of connecting with Australians on here 🤔. I do use the 🇦🇺 in my bio and over time you get to know the Australians 😊. 13mo
LeeRHarry Hi @ReadingDownUnder I‘m a fellow Aussie Litten from Melbourne 😊 13mo
ReadingDownUnder @MrsMalaprop Hi! Lived there for 4 years before migrating south! 13mo
ReadingDownUnder @LeeRHarry I love Melbourne! 👋 13mo
ReadingDownUnder @thegreensofa Maybe I can make #aussielittens happen!! 13mo
LeeRHarry @ReadingDownUnder I loved visiting Denmark - all those tall trees in the area !!😊 13mo
thegreensofa @ReadingDownUnder I love it! 😻👍🏻 13mo
julesG @thegirlwiththelibrarybag is from Australia and several more Littens that I'm following but I have trouble with names. 13mo
margreads I'm from Melbourne too 13mo

CarolynM @Centique I think you should say hello too🙂😘 13mo
Centique Oh thank you @Carolynm 😘 Hello @ReadingDownUnder I‘m a kiwi in Auckland! Might not count 😂😂 12mo
