1. Hot bath🛀, soft music and a good book or occasionally a show on my iPad. Or a good meal I didn‘t have to cook.
2. I hope we all remember to take some guilt free time for ourselves in life. You deserve it.

Thanks @LoverOfLearning for the tag.

My final time for this weekends festivities. 14 hours and 41 minutes. I finished the two pictured books and made headway in another. But most importantly I had a great time. Congratulations @MrBook

I forgot to take a picture of my #Booknbrunch for #LitsyPartyOfOne As I‘ve said I‘m not much of a snack at at home so here‘s the remnants of my bacon and egg sandwich 🥪. I don‘t think I‘ll finish Royal Holiday today because I unexpectedly have a toddler. But I did finish an audiobook this morning so I‘m still making progress.

I‘ve been listening to this book and every once in a while a word is pronounced very strangely. Enough to throw me out of the story. I‘m very familiar with the narrator and have never had this problem before. Then I realized my playback speed is set to 1.25 and that‘s why it sometimes sounds weird. 🤣🤣🤣

wanderinglynn 😂 That‘s one reason I can‘t listen to anything but normal speeds! 😂 4d
Bookjunkie57 @wanderinglynn 1.25 is a bout all I can take and I had it set for my last book. I was trying to rush though it because it was due back the the library 4d
Emilymdxn I find the opposite, for some reason whenever I listen to a book on normal speed it sounds so slow I drift off and can‘t pay attention, it needs to be 2x for me to be able to listen to anything. It‘s weird it just feels like it‘s so much slower than normal speech on 1x even though I know it‘s just normal reading pace? 4d
See All 6 Comments
Bookjunkie57 @Emilymdxn wow. I‘ve never tried it but feel like I wouldn‘t be able to process words. I once say some other Litten say they always listen at 3x. 4d
Emilymdxn @Bookjunkie57 I personally think of 2x or 2.5x as normal for me and would occasionally go up to 3x if I really wanted to finish something but it‘s a little fast, if I listened on 1x I don‘t think I could listen to audiobooks as I can‘t follow the story at all. Different strokes for different folks I guess! I love hearing about how different people read on here 4d
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I have started listening to my books at 1.5 or 2 depending. I can sound odd sometimes. 1 is just too slow for me though. 4d

First unplanned read/listen in #MrBook1InAMillion Readathon. I rarely listen to more than one audiobook at a time but with my other story being on actual CDs I needed something to listen to while working today.

Bookjunkie57 @HerDarkHuntress1 grab a few friends and do it. Doesn‘t have to be fancy or huge (unless you want it to be) 4d
TheBookHippie No -but I do serve kids who have no where to go on the Tuesday before. 👩🏽‍🍳 4d
ImperfectCJ Used to but didn't call it Friendsgiving until another friend introduced me to the term. Then we moved and all the people we know now celebrate with their families so it's just our little family, which means I can wear sweatpants. 4d
Bookjunkie57 @ImperfectCJ we do ours the week before or after actual thanksgiving and sweatpants are welcome. 🤣🤣🤣 some of the kids actually wear pjs so they can go straight to bed if we hang out late. 4d
Scochrane26 I have a couple of times. 3d
AmberWB I am doing it for the first time with this particular group of friends- we wanted to do a turkey trot 5k, but couldn‘t find one we all could do. So, we are doing our own- making funny Thanksgiving shirts and then brunch afterwards on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. 3d

My audiobook loan expired when I had 2 chapters left. 2! And there is a wait list of 5 people before I can get it again. The ebook is available so I guess I‘ll be reading the end.

#BookwormBlues

Crazeedi That's awful! There has to be a way to keep for a couple more chapters?! 6d
Bookjunkie57 Unfortunately nothing I can do now. Had I downloaded the files and listened though Apple Music I would have had them but I listened through the library app and it pulls files to the minute apparently. 6d

On top of making Litsy super sensitive I‘m missing several people in my timeline. And sometimes when I go to their page it says they haven‘t posted at all. This app has been so persnickety since the update.

#AskLitsy

jb72 Yeah the update has made the app so sensitive. It drives me crazy. 2w
ljuliel I looked through my list the other day and noticed several long time members haven‘t posted anytime recently. I just thought they moved on or haven‘t been participating for other reasons ? I know it‘s been really hard to scroll through the posts , it keeps flipping to a different post. I didn‘t know if it was the last Apple update or something wonky with Litsy. 2w
CBee I‘ve had the same problem! It‘s super sensitive! 2w
See All 7 Comments
Bookjunkie57 @ljuliel it‘s definitely the update as far as the sensitivity. I saw lots of reports on FB and I think Litsy is waiting to see if Apple puts out a fix. 😕 2w
LibrarianRyan I too have noticed people falling off my feed, people who used to post a lot. I figured some have just gotten busy, but others, if I go look under their name, they have been posting. 2w
Bookjunkie57 @LibrarianRyan great it‘s not just me. I hope a fix comes soon. I love Litsy but it hasn‘t been as fun lately. (Probably cause I‘m not seeing all I should) (edited) 2w
LibrarianRyan @Bookjunkie57 I see so many new people, which is great, but I miss the people i have had a longtime report with. 2w

1. No I just want to clean up my current reads.
2. Definitely a mood reader
3. No favorites. Whatever is around at the time will do.
4. Night owl 🦉
5. Remember it‘s meant to be fun and not stressful
6. Mostly romance (as usual)
7. Yes 😆

Thanks @Clwojick for the questionnaire.

Andrew65 Yet another night owl along with me 🦉, does that go along with reading. 3w
jb72 I am the same. I have quite a few books in progress that I need to finish up. 3w
Bookjunkie57 @Andrew65 perhaps. It‘s when the house is quiet and you can relax. That goes hand and hand with reading. 3w
