Alora Hello!! Thank you for playing! 😀💙 2d
Alora I‘m going to guess the vegetables is a lie?! 2d
AmyK1 @Alora Nope. I really don‘t like veggies. I have ridden a horse before 😊 1d
Alora Awesome!! I used to horse back ride when I was younger. I love taking rides through the trails up north 🍁🍂🌲 🐴 1d
AmyK1 @Alora I haven‘t been a lot but I really like it. Got the whole family to go last year when we were in MI. And my son‘s fiancée shows horses and works at a barn, so that‘s a lot of fun too. 1d

#aBookishquiz #justforfun @ljuliel

I can see 9 books
I can reach 4 of them
1 green book
No bookish apparel or cups. No library books and no kindle
My book is open and @wideeyedreader is reading on the couch next to me
Concentrated is the longest word, 12 letters

So that‘s 45 points

5. What is your favorite Christmas book or movie?
#friyayintro @howjessreads

Bookjunkie57 Christmas Vacation or The Holiday. I rarely read Christmas books at Christmas time so no favorites. 1w
AmyK1 @Bookjunkie57 I don‘t read Christmas books either but Christmas Vacation is definitely one of my favorites too! 1w
wanderinglynn Fave movie is White Christmas. I also love Miracle on 34th Street & How the Grinch Stole Christmas. 1w
See All 12 Comments
AmyK1 @wanderinglynn LOVE White Christmas! They had it in the theaters here last year and we went. Took my SIL, who had never seen it. Really like Miracle on 34th St too but not a huge fan of the Grinch, unless it‘s the original short cartoon one. (edited) 1w
wanderinglynn Definitely the original TV show with Boris Karloff as the Grinch. 1w
HerDarkHuntress1 My favorite Christmas movie isnt really about Christmas. Its Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. When i was little my mom had a vhs that she would always play on Christmas. It was Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, The bitter Butter Battle and the Grinch who stole Christmas. honestly i think she was just to lazy to forward the tape but it became my fav movie and tradition! 1w
ImperfectCJ It's a Wonderful Life. It's schmaltzy and cliched, and I love it. 1w
TheKidUpstairs Fave Christmas movie is a toss up between Miracle on 34th Street (the original, NOT the remake) and Muppet Christmas Carol. For book I have to stick with the classic 1w
AmyK1 @HerDarkHuntress1 lol that‘s awesome. 1w
AmyK1 @TheKidUpstairs We all (husband, kids) LOVE the Muppet Christmas Carol. And A Christmas Carol is one of the 2 Christmas books I‘ve read 👍🏼 (edited) 1w
TheBookHippie Christmas Vacation and the original Grinch 1w
AmyK1 @ImperfectCJ Definitely. We have to watch It‘s a Wonderful Life every year 😁 1w

3. Someone else mentioned having an option for DM. That would be nice. Somewhere to find information about the different “groups” for swaps, challenges, etc would be helpful. I‘m pretty new and have so far been unable to figure those out.

In October, for the first time ever, I picked out books to read ahead of time. I only picked 5 because I figured it would be easier to stick to that way. I did and ended up reading 5 more as well. It worked so well I‘m doing it again this month but still only choosing 5. @wideeyedreader and I start our cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie marathon today, which will cut down on our reading time 😉😂

I‘m starting this book today while I wait to go to lunch with a friend. I‘ve read her other 2 books and enjoyed them.

Crazeedi This was really good. I've been thinking of you, how are you doing?? 3w
AmyK1 @crazeedi It was good. Have you read The Glass Castle? I‘m doing pretty well. How are you? 3w
Crazeedi @AmyK1 oh yes it was the first of hers I read, and that book affected me for a long time. I'm doing well! 3w
AmyK1 @crazeedi It was the first of hers I read too. It was the freshman book when my daughter started college-they pick a book every year for the freshman class. She hated it lol So I read it after her. 3w

I almost never plan what I‘m going to read ahead of time. Usually I finish a book then stand in front of my TBR stacks until something jumps out at me. So I decided to give it a try this month. Some of these I‘ve had for quite awhile. We‘ll see if I actually stick to it or not 😉 Starting with the tagged.

Crazeedi I have cutting for stone on my shelf, haven't read, let me know if its good! 3w
AmyK1 @crazeedi It was a pretty good story but had A LOT of medical descriptions that seemed very unnecessary. 3w

Back in the Philly airport on my way to spend the weekend in MI with my dad. Had a long layover already and now the plane has been delayed almost an hour. I almost didn‘t bring a book. Started this one a few days ago. It was a bit slow at the beginning but is picking up now. I loved A Man Called Ove and this one may be almost as good. Might have to look for more of his books when I get home.

Crazeedi May I ask, is your mom still with you? I just now read your posts, my prayers are with you tonight. We sat with my sister in hospice in 2013, she was only 60, had Alzheimer's, but they were very good to us. Hugs 3mo
AmyK1 @crazeedi No, she isn‘t. She passed away on July 19th. Thank you for the prayers ❤️ 3mo
Crazeedi @AmyK1 I'm so sorry, my heart goes out to you. My mom is in heaven too, but there isnt a day goes by that I don't want to pick up the phone and talk to her, or go see her. I hope you find comfort, and that your dad is doing ok. 3mo

AmyK1 Thank you @Crazeedi. I know exactly how you feel. I want so much to be able to talk to her and see her again. And I know I will, one day. It‘s a comfort to know that she is no longer sick or in pain, even though we miss her desperately. My dad is doing okay. We are all trying to focus on all the good years we had, not on what cancer took away. 3mo
Crazeedi @AmyK1 it is a blessing to be out of pain, your mama is healthy and whole again! It's so hard for us though 💔 I lost my sister and then my brother 2 months later from cancer, I had a year I didn't even read a book, I realize now I was in a depression. Hugs, any time you need to talk email me crazeedi73@gmail.com 3mo
AmyK1 @crazeedi I‘m so sorry about your brother and sister. It‘s so hard to lose siblings, especially so close together. My sister passed away almost 5 years ago, also of cancer. She was only 37 😢💔 Same goes for you. My email is mattema3@gmail.com 3mo

I haven‘t picked up a book in about 2 weeks, between our anniversary trip and making an emergency trip home to be with my mom (and Dad) after she came home from the hospital with hospice care. Sitting in the airport in Philadelphia waiting for the last plane back to SC and thought maybe I‘d start this one.

Spillmrj So sorry to hear about your mom. My wife and I have worked as hospice volunteers we‘ve seen how important and how much that care is appreciated. Our prayers are with your family 4mo
AmyK1 @Spillmrj Thank you to you and your wife. You are right-it‘s so important and appreciated. It allowed my mom to be in her own home for her last few days and for my dad and I to be with her. 4mo
