Dear Jessie, thank you so much for the #birthdaybooks ❤️ I finally got around to picking them up from the PO today. I‘m really excited for the tagged book, it has been on my tbr for ages! I already own and have read the Pinborough book (and really liked it!), but then I can #PayItForward to someone else, who hopefully will like it too!

Thank you my friend!

erzascarletbookgasm I hope you‘ll enjoy the tagged book!❤️ Bad stalking on my part regarding the other book...I loved the story. I hope someone else will be able to enjoy it. 😊 3w
Kalalalatja @erzascarletbookgasm it is tough keeping up to date with all the books we Littens read 😂 don‘t worry about it ❤️ 3w

My library had a book sale this weekend and I was super happy with my finds. My Stephen King Collection continues to grow. It is my goal to one day own all of his works and I with these (as well as all the ones I already had) I would guess I am about halfway there.

Addison_Reads Great find! I have an extra Under the Dome. It's a softcover, used, in readable condition, but not perfect. If you don't have that one I'd be happy to #payitforward and send it to you. ☺ 2mo
jackilynn @Addison_Reads if I didn't already have it I would definitely take you up on that. Thanks for the offer though. It is always nice when us in the book community share our extra/used books. 2mo

I don't like to DNF books, but I wouldn't spend any more time with Gabby in real life, so I really don't feel like putting up with her in my fiction, either!

That said, I have seen a lot of positive reviews for this book also. A friend mailed it to me, so I would love to #payitforward - if you are interested in this book, let me know and I will be happy to send it on!!

Juno‘s getting a good smell off this super light read that I got from the free library down the street. The main story is excellent and reminds me of my love for Paris and all the other stories were short and sweet. Great summer read and I‘ll return it to the free library so someone else can enjoy.

#PayItForward Giveaway 💚

I have another book to send to a new home. All I ask is that you send this book on to someone else once you're finished or pick a book from your shelves to pass on.

First to comment below is the lucky winner. 😁

TrishB I try to do this with a lot of the books I get from Litsy friends it‘s a great idea! I‘ve read this one though 👍🏻 4mo
Macker11 Such a great idea! I love this! Do people do this? I think it‘s a savvy way to read new books! 4mo
Crazeedi @Macker11 yes we do this, it's a lovely way to share books, and media mail is fairly inexpensive 4mo

Crazeedi Did you really enjoy this? 4mo
Addison_Reads @Crazeedi I wasn't a big fan. I thought it was just okay. I didn't really care about any of the characters. It was however a wild ride reading it. Have you read it? 4mo
Addison_Reads @TrishB @Macker11 💚 I was inspired to do this when @Crazeedi sent me a book. I loved getting such a thoughtful gift, and I've tried to pass on books from my own shelves to encourage others to share as well. 4mo
Addison_Reads @Macker11 Would you like this book? I'd be happy to send it to you. 4mo
Macker11 Sure ! I would love to send it along when I am finished ! 4mo
TrishB Exactly 👍🏻 4mo
Addison_Reads @Macker11 just email me your shipping address and I'll get it in the mail this weekend. ☺ caddison97@gmail.com 4mo
Macker11 What is media mail? 4mo
Addison_Reads @Macker11 media mail is an option through the US postal service for reduced shipping cost on media items like books, magazines, even, etc... 4mo
Addison_Reads Sorry... Dvds not even. Silly autocorrect. 4mo
Macker11 Wow! I had no idea ! Good to know 4mo
Crazeedi @Macker11 you have to say at the post office this goes media mail if you send a book or any media, then it's like 2.50 to maybe 4.50 , but mostly I've paid around 3.00 4mo
Crazeedi @Macker11 otherwise they'll try to ship first class or priority which gets expensive 4mo
Crazeedi @Addison_Reads no I have not. I have plenty of reading material, lol 4mo
Macker11 @Crazeedi well that‘s what I was picturing with everyone sending books to each other! I was wondering why not send prime directly After paying for shipping... but that makes sense! Learn something new every day! 4mo
Crazeedi @Macker11 of you have Amazon prime you can ship to someone a new or used book, sure! Some people even give ebooks, theres a way of doing that , I cant remember how right now, someone on here knows. But if I buy a used book or get an ARC or have a book I no longer want I look on people's page where they have their want to read and send or just post and say who wants. I like to send as a surprise 4mo

Giveaway 💚

It's the first in a series about a journalist who was traumatized by her mother's unsolved murder as a child. She comes across a recent case that has similar details to her mother's case and becomes obsessed tracking down the killer.

Interested? There's a catch. You must be willing to #PayItForward and either send this book on to someone when you finish, or choose one of your books to send to someone. First to comment gets it. 😁

Addison_Reads @Butterflyamore Awesome! 😁 Email me your shipping address and I'll send it out tomorrow. caddison97@gmail.com 4mo
Butterflyamore @Addison_Reads Yay! Thank you! I‘ll email you right now! 4mo

My neighbors must be getting used to hearing squeals of happiness, hand clapping, and laughter coming from my apartment when I get Litsy mail but this would be the first time they heard me shriek, “There‘s a hippo in my book!!!!” Thank you @Addison_Reads for making my week ❤️💌📚🦛. I can‘t wait to read this book and I‘m loving my hippopotamus 🤗

Crazeedi Enjoy this book! I loved it. 6mo
Stacypatrice @Crazeedi - It looks awesome! 😊 Thank you. 6mo
Addison_Reads Yay! I'm so glad it made it safely with the hippo still in place. I saw you liked them and couldn't resist. @Crazeedi is right, you will love this book. I certainly did. I'm so happy I could make someone as happy as I was when I received it. 💚 #PayItForward 6mo
