~From the rustle of flickering pages..
To the unwinding of words...
~From the journey to wonder places..
To the scrabbling of thoughts...
~I stayed face stuck to a book; lost and bound;
~And that‘s how I got myself found!

Frog Music: A Novel | Emma Donoghue

My first visit to the used book store I love near me since the pandemic started. I‘ve ordered a book or two and bought countless ebooks and audiobooks. But my first browsing visit in so long. #myhappyplace #bookhaul

Freespirit Great haul😊👏🏼 1y
Lcsmcat I loved Paris to the Moon and Frog Music was good on audio - I didn‘t read it. 1y
AmyG How great did it feel? I miss my used books for sale library section so much. Loved Beasts. 1y

Hooked_on_books Isn‘t it wonderful to browse again? 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Freespirit I'm pretty happy ... thanks! 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Lcsmcat Good to know! After spending endless days in my house, I feel this need for memoirs set in lovely places. And historical fiction set in unique situations. This haul helps that urge, for sure. 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @AmyG It was really nice. It's a small shop and everyone I encountered was respectful and safe. Plus the owner is just lovely, and it's really been a struggle for her. Not something I'll do much this winter though ... as our COVID numbers just keep climbing exponentially. 😷 😥 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Hooked_on_books It was lovely, and felt at least as safe as the grocery store if not more so. But I won't be back any time soon. Our county is just exploding with COVID numbers! 1y
Hooked_on_books Oh man, that‘s too bad. I hope you soaked up enough bookstore vibes to last you for a while. 📚📚📚 1y

That was fun! Interesting that all but one of my answers was in the right hand column. See @rather_be_reading for the template.

Hot weather has finally said goodbye. Citrus are back in the Limonaia. I have my Fridstool back. Limonaia & Fridstool; words I learned from reading. "Fridstool is a seat of refuge, of sanctuary." My Fridstool is my Yoga Mat. ?‍♀️
#fridstool #limonaia #myhappyplace

Crinoline_Laphroaig Limonaia becomes a Cactus house in the Summer. Fall through Spring it's home to 4 Lemon trees, 4 Limes and various plants that can't survive winter in Oklahoma. Limonaia - "a garage-sized room on the side of the house once used for storing pots of lemons over the winter." ??? 3y
ChasingOm Lovely! I have the same refuge on my mat. 🧘🏻‍♀️ 3y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @ChasingOm It's been a crazy few days. Getting back on my mat this morning truly saves me. 3y

An excellent mix of anthropology, archaeology, and a simple conversation takes place between Dr. Michael Coe and the reader. He recounts stories of traveling the world as a young Mayanist and what life was like for his family.
Finally caught up on #Booked2019 #Winter #MyHappyPlace

A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara

A four-day weekend with absolutely no plans, and for two of those days, I'll have the house completely to myself. Considering taking on the tagged book. I've been hesitating because of the impact everyone talks about after reading it. I may barricade myself in my library all weekend. #MyHappyPlace #LoveMyLibrary

AmyK1 I‘ve hesitated on that one for the same reasons. 3y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Good luck - I found this book more annoying than emotionally exhausting, but that‘s my unpopular opinion! 😬 Also - what‘s your model ship? 😍😍 (edited) 3y
Tamra Lucky you, enjoy! 😁 3y

AmyG Such a good book. Enjoy your “you” time. 3y
goodbyefrancie @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled The ship's name is Belem. I picked up 8 or 9 of them at an estate sale, all in various sizes. Total impulse buy, but they are so interesting and detailed! 3y
SaraFair What a lucky girl! 3y
marleed Oh have a great weekend - so good fo the soul to move about in your unusually empty house from time to time. And great pics! 3y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled That‘s super cool. We have some model ships in the house too - none that big though. That‘s awesome 👍 3y
Cortg In all honesty, it was a tough book to read with some of what happens but it's so, so, so good! 3y
Reggie If you read this book, tag on 2 days for the sad funk it leaves you in. Enjoy!!! Lol 3y
perfectsinner It's on my want-to-reads list. 3y
