Thank Goodness For Books. As some of you might not know, my dad spent the majority of the month of June in the hospital. So I spent my time whilst keeping him company reading. As a result I completed my board! Dad is finally home! And if any of my reader friends are nurses THANK YOU for all you do. Our nurses rocked! Nurses put the “care” in healthcare. At least ours did. @TheAromaofBooks

Dragon So glad your dad is out of the hospital 💚🐉 1h
Smrloomis Very glad he‘s out! That‘s a long time but at least you put some of it to good use. Hope he‘s feeling much better 🙏🏽 1h
KristiAhlers @Dragon he is! We have home healthcare coming round once a week to monitor the CHF. But he‘s back home doing his thing. I‘m so relieved. 1h

KristiAhlers @julieclair thank you! I try to give each board a theme. I‘m weird that way. And since I haven‘t been able to get back to my favorite city I shall have to visit via stickers for now! 60m

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom: Book & CD | Bill Martin, Lois Ehlert, John Archambault, Ray Charles

This is what my last year has been about. Haven‘t really had the time to start, let alone finish any of my own books. But he‘s been enjoying mommy reading to him his books. His favorite at the moment is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. Plus we‘ve moved again and most of my books are still in storage. Can‘t wait to get them out and organize my bookshelves when I order new ones.

Today was a long day of work, but I did fit in a few pages of Tolkien‘s letters this morning while I was filling the overhead bin with corn. I was intrigued reading Letter 210 with Tolkien‘s comments about a possible film adaptation in the late 1950s. I often wonder what authors think about adaptations, so it‘s interesting to actually get some of his unsatisfied perspective.

I think #FurrowedMiddlebrow brought this to my attention and I just loved it -- more than D.E. Stevenson's similar “Mrs. Tim,“ books, to be honest. Narrator Henrietta would be a huge hit on Twitter.

LeahBergen I have this waiting on my shelves. Are you going to read the sequel, too? 3d
willaful I've recommended it to my library, so I hope so! Open Library has it, but not downloadable alas. I can't read on my computer. 2d

I won't be able to read any of the other books I put in my #bookspinbingo for June (and that includes my #bookspin and #doublespin) because I got arcs that have a priority for the month... I so hope July goes better :/
How is your bingo going?


Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I can‘t commit because I‘m a mood reader! I‘ll have a book planned next and then change my mind at the last minute 🤦🏻‍♀️ 3d
