Spent most of the morning on campus, probably the longest I've been there since graduating. Caught up with some people I haven't seen in a couple of years, and set up my alumni card for library access (got tagged book for research). Then got a card for another public library - a library-tastic day!
The wind was absolutely bitter though so now I'm home with a hot drink to warm up. And books! Life is good.

xicanti Any day with multiple library card acquisitions sounds might good. 7d
llwheeler @xicanti I agree 😃 7d
Jaimelire I graduated from Waterloo too! We are taking my son to visit this summer. I met my husband there while doing my undergrad. 6d
llwheeler @Jaimelire that sounds like it will be a nice trip 🙂 6d

#bookmail #HappyPubDay 📪📚
This little beauty was here when I got home after work! 😍
Thinking of using it as a #doubledip for #Pop2020 and #Booked2020 for next year....
This would work for Makes you LOL, #ThinkPink or Pink covers, Millenial authors and for Pop challenge for Set in an Olympic city (London)....... 🤓

Cinfhen Gotta love those #DoubleDips 🍦🍦 1w

When you go back to work full-time after 4 1/2 years and you‘re exhausted because you kinda know the industry you‘re in but you kinda don‘t so there‘s a learning curve - and on your first day, you find THIS waiting for you from your BFF - who also held my hand this entire year while I looked for job. I wish everyone could have a @MicheleinPhilly in their life. Friendship is also a love story. ❤️

The BFG is neglected now that I‘m gone all day! 😹

TrishB She‘s an awesome friend ❤️ good luck!! 2w

marleed Oh so sweet. Good luck in your job! What a wonderful friend and I completely agree. I often wish a hallmark movie about love and happiness would widen its world view. Some people find incredible happiness through platonic friendships old and new! 2w

Suet624 So what‘s the new job? 2w
LauraBeth @Suet624 it‘s destination/tourism marketing - so I‘ll be overseeing marketing strategy, creative development of ads and ad placements. That part I‘m used to but I‘m used to doing it with a corporation. This is within a government framework so there‘s a lot more stakeholders. 2w
Suet624 That‘s awesome!!! Sounds very challenging but I bet you‘ll be fantastic at it. Congrats! 2w
LauraBeth Thanks @Suet624 😘 Less time for reading though 😢 2w

I was totally blown away by this wonderful Toni Morrison documentary “The Pieces I am.”I was trying to get to a theater to see it, small films don‘t stay around very long.She is amazing & to see her fellow writers sing her praises is wonderful.Watch for it , time well spent.

#wondrouswednesday @Eggs

1. Middle-Earth. Anybody may guess it from my feed 😆
2. I think three is about right. Enough to create a world but not too long to give a conclusion to a story. I read also longer series, especially if each book can also stand alone. My favourite series is of course The Lord of the Rings.
3. Yes. I write historical fantasy stories set in the 1920s
4. I tag @KendallHershey @Lifeisasnap @Hazel2019

Eggs I love your responses! Fantasy HF!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3w
Lifeisasnap Oooo, I would love to read your HF stories!! Anything published or finished?? 3w
JazzFeathers @Eggs Are you a reader of historical fantasy? 😊 3w
JazzFeathers @Lifeisasnap Thanks so much for the interest 😊 l've just started the serialisation of a novel on my blog https://theoldshelter.com/chapter/the-frozen-maze-episode-1-an-unknown-world-of-... l'd love to hear what you think, if you end up reading it 😁 3w
Alora Very neat that you write historical fantasy!! 3w

One of the best things in life! When you go to a bookstore you shopped years ago ..before you moved away...still the same owner, still the same carefully curated selection of wonderful books! Chopin‘s 1st book ,#virago , and a Grace Lumpkin !😻😻📚📚
Happy dance!

LeahBergen Ooooo!😍😍😍 I‘ve never read Grace Lumpkin. Should I? 1mo
Leftcoastzen @LeahBergen She is an excellent writer ,her approach was more left leaning in the 1930s.I think her under appreciation could be the rise of the McCarthy era red scare in the fifties .She writes more of the working class .I loved (edited) 1mo
batsy What a gorgeous haul. Green Viragos and that Chopin cover! 1mo

I ended up enjoying this book a lot more than I anticipated, despite the fact that Vivi made a lot of opposite-than-I-would choices. In a lot of ways, this is a story about secrets and how often keeping them hurts the people we are trying to protect. While I did enjoy this one, I doubt I will read it again, so let me know if you would like me to mail you this copy!!
