Snow day means teleworking. In other words listening to work related podcasts while working on my library 🤓
This is headed your way @mabell ! And spoiler alert - it was my favorite book of January! Enjoy! 🤓
And #doublespin for February 💖
February #bookspin list 🥰
I only managed to get one read off the #auldlangspine list from @mrsmarch but it was delightful! It was sweet without being saccharine without too much teen angst and a good message.
I‘m hoping to get to a few more read off the list throughout the year. Thanks for another fun swap @monalyisha ! 🤓
My reading buddy.
This book is warped, but I am thinking of cutting out these two pages to frame and put in my library. Everyone calls me Panda and I love gin, so they seem perfect. I‘m not a terribly awful person if I cut pages out of a book, right? (Sorry for the language!)
I was really liking you Liz Lighty, I really was. 🤣
My husband says we need dinner, but do we really? I mean how can I go make dinner being this close to finishing?
My #bookspin, #doublespin, & #roll100 selections for January. Now let‘s see how many I get to…
Trying to keep up with #weeklyforecast posts this year to hopefully keep me on track with my reading goals. We‘ll see how that goes. 🤓
If you use a magnifying glass, you can see my 2022 reads 🤣
A smattering of StoryGraph stats from my 2022 reading year. I find their stats delightful.
It‘s 10 am and the hubby‘s not up, which means quiet time to start my first book of the year. An #auldlangspine pick from @mrsmarch that was also on my 2021 list from @MallenNC . Here we go!🎢
Thank you @BeaG for the lovely #winterwonderlandswap gifts. The books look fantastic & I‘m super excited for the book sleeve (it‘s my first one!) The ear muffs made me way more excited than a pair of ear muffs should, they are so soft and cozy. My husband & I both like the smell of the candle which is amazing in and of itself. (The bottom picture is him hitting the box with the bottle of champagne - why? I don‘t know.) Thanks again!
Reading adjacent goal is to finish up my library and spend more time in it reading.
Reading goals for the new year. I‘m going to try really hard to focus on my own books in 2023.
…and for my #doublespin I have all audio books under 8 hours, because there‘s no way I could get two chunksters listened to in a month.
Doing something new for this year‘s #bookspin. All my choice are audio books longer than 12 hours. I‘m trying to get a “chunk” of them off my TBR…
Went with my stepdaughter to the B&N sale and made out like a bandit (she already put hers away.) Now I‘m introducing her to Silence if the Lambs.
We‘ve been together for five years and my husband finally bought me a book! He‘s active duty Air Force, but between growing up in the AF, active duty, and reserves, I‘ve spent the last 41 years around the Air Force. The inscription is hilarious and includes all kinds of cliches we‘ve endured while serving together.
Thank you @Graciouswarriorprincess I‘ve been wanting to read this one! And the chocolates look delicious! Thanks @MaleficentBookDragon for setting this up again this year! #jolabokaflodswap
My #jolabokaflod package is here @Graciouswarriorprincess ! (We haven‘t checked mail in a couple of days so it may have been here earlier.)
My new library chair came in! The library‘s not finished, but I‘m going to sit here in my new chair and finish my book.
Dang it! I‘m always a day late! #Pemberlittens
I forgot to take a picture, but I think I mailed my #winterwonderlandswap box. I did pickup and they took the box but I‘m not sure I paid for it and I don‘t have a tracking number, so I‘m confused. @Pigpen_Reads if you don‘t get it in a few days, let me know.
My #jolabokaflodswap is on the way to its Litten! I also received my #winterwonderlandswap package, but I can‘t find the person it‘s from on Litsy…
🌼 I‘ve been married to a wonderful man & stepmom to two great kids (we get along!) for three years
🌼 I have a Bulldog named Gus, who is usually very sweet, often a pill, & likes to interrupt my reading
🌼 My stepkids call me Panda (it‘s also my call sign)
🌼 I‘m in the Air Force Reserves & will retire this year
🌼 I used to be a registered dietitian, but now I‘m a government contractor
🌼 I live in Omaha, Nebraska
Lovely list @mrsmarch ! I‘ve already read City of Brass and the adult version of Stamped. I have Once Upon a River on audio and All That She Carried in print, so I‘ll start there. This is the second time my #auldlangspine list has had You Should See Me in a Crown, so I definitely feel I should read that one! I‘m looking forward to diving in! Thank you for running the show @monalyisha !
Last #bookspin & #doublespin for the year!
I grabbed a cup of coffee & leisurely filled out the form for #auldlangspine with the list I‘ve been lovingly curating for the past 10 months, because this is one of my favorite Litsy events. Thank you @monalyisha for hosting & the early sign up! And I like the name change, since I always messed up the old name! 😂
I went to the wrong polling place to start, but I got it done!
Here are a few suggestions I have on my cookbook shelf. Anything look appetizing? #LPMC
November #bookspin & #doublespin. I‘m only one book behind in my listening, so I picked some shorter ones this month.
About to have a very long day at a swim meet. Good thing I have a good book with me.
Sat in traffic for an hour and a half (why Omaha?), but it was worth it to pick up my preorder of this book from my local indie. And not to brag or anything, but I am related to the author. I know what I‘m reading this weekend!
October #bookspin & #doublespin. This year is flying by!
They‘re finally here!
I was supposed to mow the lawn today since my husband is gone for work. But it‘s been raining all day, so I was forced to watch Austen inspired movies and read instead. Poor me.☺️
I‘m super excited to be the first one to post on my cousin‘s debut novel! And I‘m doubly excited to read it in November!
Good use for the new projector & surround sound - putting on an ambience room from YouTube while I read. 🤓 (Gus decided to photo bomb.)
September #bookspin and #doublespin.
Hanging out with my reading buddy this evening.
I‘m only a week late, but here‘s my July wrap up. Apparently I was in a cleaning/organizing mood.
Audio #bookspin for August 🥳
Y‘all! I got rid of some books! Taking them to goodwill today so I don‘t have time to think about it. 🤓
Reading chairs. I‘m looking for on for my library. Do I go with this very comfy dad chair (that my stepdaughter is testing), which is not at all what I had envisioned. Or do I keep looking for the “perfect” reading chair?
After almost 2 1/2 years, CoVID finally got me. I have my snuggle buddy, some light reading, and lots of fluids. Gonna try to take it easy. Maybe I‘ll finish a book or two? 🤒
