I added the notes that came with my #monstermadness2017 prizes from @LibrarianRyan too, on top of the schedules for buddy reads I didn't have time to participate in. My #bujo is now a scrapbook and I love it. It's not a reading journal or a bullet journal, it's straight-up just a Litsy journal. #blameitonlitsy

Reviewsbylola I️ so need a Litsy journal! 2y
Cinfhen That‘s fab 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @Reviewsbylola Yes! It's so awesome. Now I have all my reading challenges and TBR bingos and photo challenges and monthly reading stats/wrap-ups, and buddy read schedules and readathons and postal swaps and book club picks all in one place! Plus a reading log. I was going to put reviews in as well until I realized there wouldn't be space AND it would be hard to find in the future. So I bought a little reading journal just for reviews and quotes. 2y

kamoorephoto I think I‘m going to start one... 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @kamoorephoto Do it! Do it! Do it! 😄😄😄😆 2y
Sarah83 Such a great scrapbook 😍 2y
UnidragonFrag I love this! Mine is starting to devolve into this plus quotes and doodles. Not good at the day-to-day updates. 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @UnidragonFrag Yeah, @Librariana had a really lovely daily tracker I copied, but I found I'm not capable of checking in on the page numbers of all the books in reading at the same time which are scattered throughout the house EVERY DAY, I got behind FAST. 😂 My adhd is way too bad for that level--I have to remind myself to brush my teeth, I definitely can't keep up a recording habit that detailed. Oh well--I tried! 😆 2y
rubyslippersreads What a wonderful idea! I'm not nearly as creative, but a Litsy journal sounds like fun. 2y

I always love receiving a letter from @LibrarianRyan

As always the bookmarks are fab! Thanks again for doing the challenges, I really enjoy them! ☺️ (in this case #MonsterMadness2017 )

Regarding your question about the naming of Newcastle upon Tyne, I‘m afraid it is as uninteresting as you envisioned! It is named for the New Castle built upon the Tyne river... ironically now in an area known as Old Newcastle 🤣

Look what I pulled out of my mailbox.

Thank you, @LibrarianRyan - I will hang up the sparkly spider, it's much too cool to hide in a book. Will make a great addition to my meagre Halloween decoration. 😉

I know who might want to have the Monster bookmark.


PS: Edward Cullen can play instruments, but I think Gerard is the better singer.

This was a nice thing to come home to after work today! Thanks, @LibrarianRyan !! I already hung my spider from my Scrabble tile wall decoration and put my bookmark on my shelf. I LOVE the Clawdeen sticker on my envelope. I can't wait for the Christmas challenge! I had so much fun with this #monstermadness2017 challenge.

By the way, your stamp was awesome.

sisilia @LibrarianRyan has the best bookmarks 😍 2y
WarpedSweetness @sisilia Yes she does! I need a better shelf to display it. 2y

I thought I'd walk up and check the mail while I listened to this audiobook, and I was surprised and delighted with a special delivery from @LibrarianRyan !! It must be my prize from #monstermadness2017! What a lovely surprise in my day. ❤️❤️❤️ THANK YOU
(Also, I'm obsessed with your address stamp! Where did you get it?)

Cinfhen Oh, that stamp is 🙌🏻💜🎉💘 @LibrarianRyan 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @Cinfhen Yeah, I'm so into it. I want a Litsy-Specific address stamp! (Though she could be using "Librarian Ryan" in many different ways) 2y

Cinfhen It's still awesome, even without her Litsy name ‼️‼️ 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @Cinfhen Haha, yeah! I wrote about liking it before I even realized it had her handle! 2y
LibrarianRyan It's from Paper source. It has different plates and I change it out for what I'm doing. And yes I use Librarian Ryan a few places and with a lot of the kids I work with. When I had to have a stamp made for the new house I had 2 made. @Natasha.C.Barnes @Cinfhen 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @LibrarianRyan That is awesome, thanks for the info! 2y

What can make a Friday even better? Mail from @LibrarianRyan . I love the book marks ( but I will be hanging the spider in my kitchen). Thank you so much! #monstermadness2017
