post image

Hello, Kindred Spirits! Here is an UPDATED schedule for May/June. Since the #CHILDRENSCLASSICREAD2024 with @TheBookHippie will be reading Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm in MAY, I shuffled our schedule around so we can join in the excitement and read it together.

We'll start the Complete Journals on May 1 - which is next week!! 😱 I'll post a weekly check-in/discussion post on Saturdays.

#KindredSpiritsBuddyRead #LMMJournals #LMMAdjacent #LMMReread

BarbaraJean Preview of coming attractions: We'll start Volume 2 of the Complete Journals in July/August, and will also re-read Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea. 9h
julieclair Yay! Very excited for all the LMM-adjacent reads! 😃 3h

Tonight‘s #Naturalitsy #HyggeHour features Pippi for #ChildrensClassicRead2024 & finishing up A Little Bit of Astrology for #travelingstars2024 so I can get it sent out this week.

Drinking green tea & enjoying some KitKats a coworker brought back from Japan & a mini lemon bar from Friday‘s meeting. Mood is a bit blue that Monday came so quick.😔Last week was hard & busy & I think this week will be the same, but it‘s nice to have this quiet time.

slategreyskies I find the Kit Kat flavors available in Japan to be fascinating. Did you know that, in the past few decades, there have been hundreds of different flavors of Kit Kats released in Japan? I couldn‘t even think of hundreds of flavors if I wanted to, and the creativity with the flavors released is just amazing! Everything from roasted tea to wasabi to chestnut to sweet potato flavored ones. So incredibly cool! 🍫 3d
DebinHawaii @slategreyskies Yes! They are so creative with the flavors & I love that! The ones here weren‘t too different/fancy-white chocolate strawberry & strawberry cheesecake but they were good & fun to try! 3d
TheBookHippie Have a wonderful week!! 3d

TheBookHippie @BarbaraJean oh 😬 sorry bout that. I make and put out our schedule Oct 2023. I didn‘t catch you had it on your schedule. But please do read along.

curiouserandcurioser @TheBookHippie I read this a long time ago and loved the Shirley Temple movie:) I'm excited for this❤ 4d
BarbaraJean @TheBookHippie Oh, no worries!! I made up our schedule only a few months ago and wish I‘d thought to look at your schedule before I did. I may see if the Kindred Spirits readers want to move things around a bit… there‘s just a few of us and some are on your tag list as well 😊 @TheAromaofBooks @julieclair @rubyslippersreads 4d

This zany red head was a childhood favorite and she stands the test of time of time. Still a fun read. Now I have a hankering to watch the movies. Pippi on the run is my favorite.

“ 'Goodness, how it stormed!' Pippi would say. 'Even the fishes were seasick and wanted to go ashore. I saw a shark that was absolutely green in the face and an octopus that sat holding his head in all his many arms'“

I love Pippi Longstocking and wanted to be just like her. I still do! She‘s a rule-breaker, she‘s outrageous, she‘s fearless, she‘s self-sufficient and she has a kind and generous heart. This is the 2nd book in the series & just as much fun as the first. Only this time, we get to meet Pippi‘s almost as strong and equally outlandish seafaring Dad.
Thanks @TheBookHippie for bringing Pippi back into my reading life.😍📖

PurpleyPumpkin So glad you‘re enjoying these books! My hold just came in from my library. I‘ll be diving into this one soon. You know, I don‘t think I‘ve ever read it!😲 1w
UwannaPublishme Yay! Your hold came in. Get ready for Pippi to knock your socks off. 😁 She‘s quite a character! Hope you‘re doing well and enjoying some warmer weather over there. ❤️ 1w
