Someone want to explain this addition to biography & memoir in the Libro.fm app?
Planning out my reading challenges for 2022. Not sure what it says that I can find potential picks for every square for the #nonfiction2022 bingo card already sitting on my shelves. I guess this is a good argument for me to #readmyowndamnshelves.
I got my #wintersolsticeswap package @staci.reads - thank you! My husband would like to know if things are wrapped so I can open it and he can throw away the box. It drives him nuts when I have boxes laying around (doesn‘t bother me either way.)
Y‘all it happened. I went to go pick up the book I ordered from my local indie. As I was standing in line waiting, one of the booksellers said “Amanda, I have your book right here!” Yep, they know me by name now 🤓
Totally forgot to post. Finally got my #wintersolstice and #jolabokaflodswap packages in the mail (took me multiple trips to the post office.) I forgot to put the hashtag on the #jolabokaflod package, so @Soubhiville the package you get from Nebraska is for the swap! @sprainedbrain @Chrissyreadit @MaleficentBookDragon
For anyone on Storygraph & doing @PuddleJumper ‘s #roll100 challenge, I created a challenge to track your list of 100 books. Thought if it might make it easier for me to track, it would probably help a few others too.
Amazingly, I have read none of the books off this list @sprainedbrain ! The three in the corner I already own, so I will definitely be checking those out. The ones on right have my interest piqued. Funny enough, there was a Sally Rooney book on @MallenNC ‘s list last year that I bought & never read. Maybe someone is trying to say I should read some Sally Rooney? Though, I think I may check out the tagged book first… #newyearwhodis
I may have overdone it with the book swaps this holiday season! At least I know there will be books under the tree for me! #jolabokaflodswap #bestof2021swap #wintersolsticeswap @candority @MaleficentBookDragon @Chrissyreadit @sprainedbrain
I‘m working night shifts this week & have no idea what day it is, but I realized I forgot to post my #bookspin & #doublespin books for November. One of the lists I have that I‘m trying to read more off of was picked, so I chose a physical book off the list. I wanted to read Sister Outsider, but sadly, it‘s packed in a storage unit while we redo the basement. But, I‘m excited about this one!
Y‘all. When I sold my townhouse earlier this summer, my husband said I should get one thing I really, really wanted. I have been wanting a custom picture from Ideal Bookshelf for about a decade. I am so excited about this! It came out fantastic & I love it! I can‘t wait till there are walls in my library to hang this up on!
Picked this up on our Costco run today. Anyone know how to get the sticker off without damaging the cover?
My favorite day! New picks from #MyTBR, and as always, they look fabulous!
My #pennyperpage for August. I should be more in the red, but I decided the books I bought in August don‘t count. August is my birthday month & this year I turned 40, so I get all the books!
My July #bookspin is an enthusiastic pick. This was a love letter to the food & people of the United States. The nuance he used when looking at cuisine, culture, the immigrant experience, tradition, cultural appropriation, and life was masterful. After finishing, I promptly went out and bought his cookbook just to read more.
My July #doublespin. I think I might have enjoyed this more in paper? It was meandering and I kept losing the thread as he was talking. I did enjoy some of the stories, but it was a little uneven. Maybe it just hasn‘t aged well?
And the ever favorite, audio book #doublespin.
Gus finally decided to let me read.
Indulged in some literary treats on my 40th b-day trip to New Orleans. Went to the Faulkner House Bookstore & we stayed at the Hotel Monteleone (on the literary landmarks registry!). The only thing I couldn‘t find was a books & booze tour - New Orleans would be a great town to tour literary landmarks with cocktails.
