Photographic proof of a little amount of #litsylove going out! I sent some out this morning too. I still have about 30 more letters to reply to but slow and steady wins the race as they say! If you‘ve sent me a letter in the past 6ish months I will reply! I‘m determined to even if you don‘t remember you sent me one ha! Now to eat and read a little before I reply to more! 🥰

BookNAround I think I‘m close to 30 behind too. And I‘ll get there eventually too. 🤪 4mo
Ash.on.the.line @BookNAround ha! That makes me feel a little better to not be the only one! Your letter is in my stack from DECEMBER! 😵‍💫😂 it can be daunting! I‘m getting there though! 4mo
MoonWitch94 I am waaaaaaaaay behind. I just started something new. I‘m typing a general summary of what‘s been going on with me to send to everyone I write to. Then, on the bottom I personalize the letter. That way I‘m not writing ✍️ the same sentences over & over & over. 4mo

Thanks for the tag @EadieB been too long since I‘ve done one of these! 😄
1. I‘ve definitely had some plots but very basic like once I was at a place where a murder happened and turns out it was a twin scenario 🤣
2. I don‘t reread a lot but probably Crescent City
3. Getting back to a normal routine. Working out, writing letters+journal, and reading more of course! 😆

Hello all! I have been off most social media this last month. Life has a way to bring you down and lift you right back up. I‘m truly okay, and starting to get back to a somewhat normal. I‘m sorry @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I should have let you know for #litsylove i just felt so overwhelmed. I love that group so much, and I‘m working on letters little by little everyday. I hope the group understands.

Kind of hard to see on my bingo board but I finished my #bookspin for February. I feel like a slump is coming on and I‘m trying to fight it. I think that‘s why I gave this a so so. It sounded so intriguing but I just couldn‘t get into it.
Also I did get Covid again. Even vaccinated and always wearing my mask I still was exposed. Not as bad as my first time but I wasn‘t in a reading mood. Just rest & YouTube. I hope my Litsy people are doing well!

My February #bookspin #doublespin and #bookspinbingo list. I‘m not really in a slump but I haven‘t read anything that has really pulled me in lately. I have so many mass market paperbacks that I really want to put a dent in this year so they make up a majority of my list. Here‘s to a good February full of reading!

TheAromaofBooks I've been the same way. I feel like my entire month has been 3 & 3.5* reads - okay, but nothing to shout about. 8mo
CoverToCoverGirl So far this year I‘ve read nine books and DNF‘d four, two were just okay but three were excellent. So not a good beginning for 2022. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ 8mo

julesG That's so strange. You can get a Billy here any time you visit IKEA. But, Germany has a lot of IKEA stores. We have one at the other end of town, not twenty minutes away. Used to meet my knitting group at the restaurant there once a week - we had a lot of candles and paper napkins at home during that time. Just couldn't leave the store without buying any. 🤣 8mo
