Hey guys! The lovely @GypsyKat made a #ChristmasMovieBingo and I wanted to share it with the #WinterGames team captains!

rather_be_reading yes!! ❤ 1d
SaturnDoo I made some Christmas movie bingo cards in my BUJO that include all the holiday movies currently available on Netflix,Hulu and Disney+. 😊 that's the ones I will be working from for #wintergames. Can't wait to start. 1d

Hello Team #MerryReaders! We have our final team ♥️ I am thrilled to be your team captain, and hope that this upcoming month is nothing but joyous and fun for each and every one of us. Please see the attached file for some FAQs. https://docs.google.com/document/d/16mE1iuQ3uLE90x6XBUccDbFIAy0prEGA8shtFre-_gQ

Clwojick Does anyone want to have a team chat going throughout the month on Slack? Let me know and I can set it up. 😊 Also, it seems that everyone has expressed interest in swapping Christmas cards. A few have mentioned that sending to 1 person, instead of all 12 works better for them, so I feel like that‘s the better choice. I can email you all with your team members address if you are okay with that! 1d
Clwojick As always, if you have any questions about the #WinterGames please let me know ♥️♥️♥️ (edited) 1d
Shakespearience I am not familiar with Slack. And emailing with the address is fine. I am so excited for reading and more books during the upcoming holiday season. Go Team Merry Readers! 1d

Alora I‘m not familiar with slack but would be willing to get it! 😊 1d
Clwojick Here is the link to the slack channel that I‘ve started. It‘s a relatively easy app to use once you download it. It‘s free of course 1d
Emilymdxn I‘ve joined! So excited for this and thank you for organising the team 1d
Simona I am not a participant in #winterGames, but I just want to tell you that I admire your effort and time putting into those events. 1d
Jerdencon I‘ll join slack too - it‘s like what‘s app. Looking forward to this! Thanks for organizing and being our captain! @Clwojick 1d
TheAromaofBooks I joined Slack but have no idea what I'm doing lol 24h
Clwojick @Simona thank you so much! It definitely is a lot of time and effort, but everyone, including myself, had so much fun with the event in October that I couldn‘t resist doing it again. 😆 24h
Simona I know what you're talking about, it's a pleasure for me to see so many participants that you make happy and how much fun they have. Lookin forward for all the posts 😍 23h
Inkblotsandcoffeestains I‘m soooo excited about this! I‘ll try to set up slack now 23h
AmyK1 Excited! My daughter and I have been talking about books and movies for next month. Sadly she‘s on another team lol I‘ll join slack. 22h
TheKidUpstairs I'm pretty sure I signed up for #WinterGames last week, but I haven't heard anything about what team I'm on. Can you check? Did my sign up not go through? 20h
TheKidUpstairs Wait! Just found the post! I'm all good, thanks! 20h
Alora I‘m creating a slack account now, and going to the library today to pay my $30 late fee from 10+ years ago (whoooops! Lol) so I can get a bunch of holiday themed books for the games!? I‘m assuming this is the easiest way to get a bunch of holiday books such as childrens books, etc for points? 15h
Clwojick @Alora while you‘re at the library, as them if they use Libby, Overdrive, Hoopla, or CloudLibrary. Those apps are great for audiobooks and ebooks. YouTube is another good idea for short stories, or children‘s books if you want to check out certain ones before you buy them. I‘ll check them out on YouTube before I buy children‘s books on amazon for baby gifts. 13h
Alora Thank you so much! I will definitely check out YouTube 11h

TheQuietQuill @Kati15 @Clwojick Hello there!! I was wondering the same thing, I signed up but wasn‘t put on a team yet. Can‘t wait for the #wintergames 🎄❄️ 2d

#NotBookRelated - But I thought it was too cute not to share! Thanks to the upcoming #WinterGames, I‘m getting into some serious holiday spirit! I started decorating my clinic for the holidays today. I ran out of red tinsel garland before I could get to the end of the hallway, but how cute is this cardiac rhythm garland? 😱I just love how it‘s turned out so far! 😍

DaveGreen7777 I love it! 💗💗💗 5d

Simona I like this idea❣️ 4d
MidnightBookGirl Lol, I'm an idiot! I found the info and copied it. I plan on making some kind of spreadsheet to keep track of my team's points. Thank you again for coming up with this!!! 😄 4d
BookieBiker As someone that has seen the inside of far too many cardiac units, I love this 😁. Wonderful! 4d
Emilymdxn I‘m so excited for winter games too!! I can‘t wait to get started properly and that‘s such a cute funny decoration idea 4d
Clwojick @MidnightBookGirl I‘ll be sending an email tomorrow with a spreadsheet y out can copy. It‘s all set to add the daily team totals, as well as the individual participants totals. No worries if you don‘t want to use it, but it made Scarathlon tracking so easy, and I was in charge of tracking for 45 people with that event 4d
MidnightBookGirl I will definitely use it! Anytime I don't have to try to math is a good time! 4d
SquidgetsRoom Looks really cool! I actually like that idea so much I think I might do it in my living room & hallway!! I‘m excited for #WinterGames too!! I haven‘t been able to join any events on Litsy before so I‘m looking forward to it! 3d
rather_be_reading very creative! 3d
GypsyKat That‘s awesome!!! 2d
Clwojick @SquidgetsRoom yay! If you do end up doing, I suggest that you use fishing line, and tape that to the wall instead of right on the garland. That worked so much better for me! 2d
SquidgetsRoom Thanks for the tip @Clwojick I will post pics if I attempt it!! 2d

Listened to roughly 1/3 of this audiobook while I got one of the more tedious recipes out of the way. 2.5 hours, 160 chocolate oatmeal cookies and a load of dishes later, I‘m finally stepping out of the kitchen. ♥️

Incoming Litsy comments! #NFNov!

Cortg How's the book/audio so far? Looks good 😍 1w
Clwojick @Cortg It‘s good so far! He seems to have covered a lot of ground in the first 3.5 hours, so I‘m interested to learn more about Amy Winehouse as the audiobook progresses. ♥️ 1w
katads Have you watched the documentary about her on Netflix? If you haven‘t I recommend it! It‘s tragic of course, but she was so warm and talented. Lots of footage from her home videos. 1w

Did anyone else feel like the ending was really rushed?

All in all, I did enjoy the book, but just wish the ending was a little longer. I still have so many questions! 🖤

Bookwormjillk Now that you mention it an epilogue or something would have been nice 1w

Bookwormjillk What do team captains have to do? 1w

Listening to this one tonight while I track the points for #NFNov ♥️ I‘ve always stated that I have a touch of selected OCD. Some things REALLY bother me, but other things don‘t faze me. It‘s definitely a subject that I‘d like to better understand.

Lizpixie My daughter has a habit of rearranging the shelves at supermarkets! Everyone has a bit of OCD in them I think, some just have it to the point it overwhelms them.🙁 1w
Caterina @Clwojick @Lizpixie When I had OCD, I had obsessive thoughts and repetitive, ritualistic compulsions around cleaning/washing and eating (not all those compulsions are entirely gone yet). Mine had nothing to do with tidiness or orderliness, so kind of bothers me when OCD is considered synonymous with straightening or organizing things. The biggest part of OCD for me was the obsessive thoughts, which others couldn't even see. 1w

Me and my husband were just having a discussion about music and songs that immediately make you emotional. What‘s one song that always gets you going? Mine are Not Alone by Red, Be Like That by Three Doors Down and Walls by Kings of Leon.

Alora Whats up by 4 non blondes. Drink a Beer by Chris Stapleton/Luke Bryan. All songs that remind me of my dad. 💔🌹 1w
Kappadeemom One Sweet Day by Mariah Carey because my granddad died when that song was popular. A lot of songs make me emotional though but that‘s the power of music ❤️❤️ 1w

BethM Beautiful graphic! 1w
Librariana Many of the songs on the soundtrack for the musical "Dear Evan Hansen" make me extremely emotional. Given the subject matter of the play, a lot of the songs speak to the importance of inclusion and acceptance. There's also one about what it means to be a single parent raising a child and that one always gets the waterworks going! 1w
AmberWB Sirens, Just Breathe, Man of the Hour- Pearl Jam In My Life -The Beatles 1w

Hello! Welcome to team #MerryReaders. I will be your team captain for the #WinterGames. There will be more details to come, but in the meantime, we should discuss if we‘d like you exchange Xmas cards throughout the team. We can either each send to 1 team member, or each send a card to everyone on the team. Let me know your thoughts below! Go team #MerryReaders!

Alora Awesome! So exciting! How many people are on the team?! Everyone tagged? 10-15? 2w
Clwojick @Alora currently between 10-11 on each team. We‘ll see how many more people sign up! 🥰 I‘m not expecting there to be any more than 15 per team though. I‘d be shocked if there are, since there‘s 10 teams. (edited) 2w

Chili I would be happy to send to the whole team. 🤶🏻 2w
Jerdencon I‘m fine with sending to everyone too 2w
Clwojick I‘m happy to send out to everyone as well. But if anyone is not able to, there‘s no pressure. I understand that the holidays can be very expensive! ♥️ 2w
Emilymdxn I‘d be happy to send out cards but would need quite a lot of notice for international shipping as it can be very slow from England! I‘ll need to check the airmail prices as it can get pricey but it‘s been affordable in the past so hopefully! 2w
TheAromaofBooks I think exchanging cards with the whole group would be fun, but understand if not everyone can. Also, MerryReaders is an ADORABLE team name! 2w
AmyK1 I‘m fine with sending cards to everyone 2w
Shakespearience It looks like a small enough team that I could manage a card to everyone — though I think i might prefer just one to one 1w

Finished this one off last night before bed. I‘m thankful that my anxiety is not nearly at this level, but I know for many people, it is. Whether or not you suffer from any level of anxiety, I feel like this memoir is worth the read. ♥️

Total time for #24B4Monday, #MrBook1inaMillion us roughly 4 hrs 25m. I‘m not bothering with the ⏱as I know I won‘t be able to read much. Spending time with my husband before he goes back underground for 2 weeks.❤️

Andrew65 That time with your husband is more important and still a great time given this. 👏👏👏 2w
Lynnsoprano Hubby is definitely priority. Mine deals with significant anxiety. This sounds like something I should read. 2w
WorldsOkayestStepMom I deal with high anxiety and should probably read this book as well as others that my therapist has suggested. But fiction is more fun and a great escape for me! Lol enjoy the time with your husband! 2w

Switching up the audiobooks again. 33 Men is just too emotional for me to fall asleep to. This is my bed time choice for tonight. I haven‘t had much chance to read for #24B4Monday so far... slightly over an hour before I crashed last night. Hoping to get in atleast 5-10 years this weekend, but honestly that‘ll even be a stretch. 🙈 Sad to be working for the next 6 weekends. #MrBook1inaMillion

I‘d be lying if I said this book didn‘t keep me up last night. I had a hard time sleeping after finishing just the first 3 chapters. I knew it would be a hard one for me, but I‘ve wanted to read it for a while now.

Some of you may know that my husband is an underground miner. I often mention that he‘s gone for 2 weeks at a time. He was recently promoted to blaster, and I feel better knowing that such an important and dangerous position ⬇️

Clwojick ... is being filled by such a smart, level headed person. I know that the mine is in good hands with him being trained in one of the more serious positions. While I‘ve always known that his mine is always SAFTEY FIRST #TIL that some mines could care less about the safety of their miners. I want to continue with the book, my my heart is hurting. 😞 (edited) 2w
Bookwormjillk Take care of yourself @Clwojick 2w

4thhouseontheleft I knew your spouse worked away from home for weeks at a time, but didn‘t know it was in a mine. Congrats on the promotion for him! I‘m sure you are a source of strength for him too. 💜 2w
Clwojick @4thhouseontheleft I certainly try to be! I‘m grateful that his mine is only 2 hours from home, and that his mine takes all levels of safety procedures seriously. ♥️ 2w
Clwojick @Bookwormjillk always! ♥️thank you 2w

♥️ I hope you all have a beautiful day today! Get out there and crush whatever obstacles are in your way! You‘ve got this! I promise! 🙌🏻

Cinfhen For some reason I haven‘t been able to see any of your posts in months! I was trying to see your TBR because I wanted to send a thank you gift for the awesome decal you sent me. (edited) 2w
tessavi Thanks & the same to you! 🦔 2w
Clwojick @Cinfhen lol! Did you have the #Scarathlon or #TeamSlaughter tags blocked? 2w

Cinfhen No...it‘s so weird!! I‘ve been trying to find you since September!!! 2w
Clwojick @Cinfhen I‘ve been overly active on here too! That‘s so weird! Someone else was questioning whether or not Litsy changed the algorithm... 2w
Cinfhen Well I‘m glad to find you again and I now have access to your TBR!!! Hope it‘s up to date😂 (edited) 2w
Clwojick @Cinfhen 😂😂😂 relatively up to date, I believe? 🙈 2w
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen I have been wondering if the algorithm changed too. There are some Littens that never show up on my feed anymore, I have to seek them out, which I find out, because I thought it was still a chronological feed. 2w
MrBook @TimSpalding ☝🏻 2w
TimSpalding It‘s still entirely chronological. 1w

Well, that took no time at all to get 10 team captains for the Winter Games. I wanted to tag you all in a separate post so we can chat about a few things before the event gets rolling and the teams are sorted First of all, we should each choose a team name!

Clwojick I‘m stuck between #TeamMistletoeMoose and #TeamEpicElves 😂😂😂 2w
Crimson613 if it's like the halloween event can i have jack skellington :DDDDDD so like teamskellington or something HMMMM 2w
Clwojick @Crimson613 I love that that movie covers both holidays! ♥️🌲🎃 2w

Crimson613 @Clwojick yes! I love the style too :) 2w
Crimson613 @Clwojick i like the alliteration xD i think misletoe moose sounds like a tongue twister so i like that one more >_> 2w
LibrarianRyan Hummm. #teamFragile or #TeamElectricSex. #teamMarlysGost sound to been there done that. 🦵🏻💡 2w
wanderinglynn How about #teamFestivus? 😂 2w
Clwojick 😂 😂 😂@LibrarianRyan 😂😂 😂 2w
mdm139 Not a team Capitan but since we are tagging at least 3 people and #wintergames already I would suggest short team names. Maybe use the reindeer names. #teamvixen. Etc 2w
BarkingMadRun Loving all of these so far! @LibrarianRyan I love yours! 2w
Clwojick @mdm139 Thats a good idea too! 2w
Clwojick #GangsterWrappers and #GrinchGang 😆 SO many good ones. 2w

Bookworm54 TeamNutcracker! I almost missed the best one haha 2w

StayCurious Haha these are all great! I‘ll have to put my thinking cap on! 2w
FantasyChick Ahhh!!! I love some of these names! Right now I've got #TeamTinselToes and #TeamKrampus but I'll keep thinking. My brain hasn't coffee'd yet this morning 2w
FantasyChick Ok...I've got the winner. #JingleBallers 2w
StayCurious I was thinking TeamMistleWhoa ;) lol or I'll keep thinking.... 2w
Clwojick @MidnightBookGirl oh my gosh! If you don‘t take MerryReaders, I will! That‘s a fantastic one! 😍😍😍😍 2w
MidnightBookGirl @Clwojick You can have that one then! 2w
Clwojick Hahahha Hahahah! 2w
Clwojick This comment feed is hilarious 2w
Clwojick @sharread Any thoughts on your team name? 2w
sharread @wanderinglynn 🤣 For the restavus. 2w
wanderinglynn @sharread exactly. We shall have the airing grievances & feats of strength. 😂 2w
Clwojick @sharread @wanderinglynn @LibrarianRyan @MidnightBookGirl @StayCurious @FantasyChick @Bookworm54 @BarkingMadRun @Crimson613 Amazingly enough, we‘ve already surpassed 100 participants. I‘m guessing wash team will be between 10-15 ppl by the end of the month. I‘d be shocked if we had more than 150 total people, but it‘s always possible. Does that work for everyone? 🎄🦌🎅🏻 2w
BarkingMadRun @Clwojick fine with me! 2w
StayCurious Yay! So many Holiday peeps! 2w
sharread Sounds fantastic 😮 2w
FantasyChick Sounds like it's going to be a great time! 2w
Crimson613 @Clwojick 👌👌👌 2w
wanderinglynn That‘s a lot of people. Any chance of recruiting more team captains? 2w
LibrarianRyan @Clwojick I can take as many as need be. Are you going to let members pick their teens or auto assign? Just curious. 2w
Clwojick @wanderinglynn I can certainly put the word out once we have a better estimate of participants. 🥰 I want everyone to have equal team members. I‘ll be auto assigning them. I‘ll just be going down the list and numbering them 1-10. I feel like that‘s the easiest way. @LibrarianRyan (edited) 2w
Bookworm54 @Clwojick sounds good! 2w
Clwojick @wanderinglynn, @BarkingMadRun, @Bookworm54, @LibrarianRyan, @MidnightBookGirl, @StayCurious, @FantasyChick, @Crimson613, @sharread Hey guys, I just sent you each an email with the start of your teams. Please let me know if you did not receive it. 😆 2w

#KeepLitsyActive

1. The recommendations for books I would never have read before joining Litsy, the community of amazing people, and the wide variety of events.
2. There‘s nothing that comes across my feed that bothers me.
3. I like the idea of having an Owned TBR list, and a Do Not Have TBR list
4. It varies, but normally multiple times throughout the day.
5. I‘ve taken part of and enjoyed them all.

↘️Continued down below. ↙️

Clwojick 6. I feel like one of the major things that is lacking in Litsy that was a major thing a few years ago is genuine conversation. Maybe people are more shy now, I‘m not sure... but there seems to be less back and forth conversation then before. Yes a comment here and there, but not as much back and forth. Does that make sense? 2w
Clwojick 6. Continued... I am a fan of the addition to “hide” a hashtag. I‘ve never needed to do so, but I like that the option is out there for others. I realize that not everyone wants to be apart of all events, so it‘s great to have the opening to “opt out” of having to view related posts. 2w
See All 21 Comments
ljuliel Thanks for responding. Yes it‘d be a great help to know which books people already own on their tbr. It‘s a bit hard to know that with the current setup. You just have one long list of books in that area. 2w
Clwojick @ljuliel 😅 Especially after forging the lists with my Goodreads list. I gave up trying to keep it up to date after that. 2w
ljuliel I agree about the conversations. A lot of that is lacking now. That‘s sort of the reason I put these questions up. To get people talking a bit amongst ourselves. Things have changed in here , but maybe we can turn it around somehow. I always think there are lots of lurkers that have yet to post. I‘d like to get them more involved too. It‘s really not scary to post. Most everyone in here is nice. I‘m probably the crabbiest one, but I can be nice🤨 2w
ljuliel Yea, I just saw that feature on the web page where you can add your Goodreads books. That‘d definitely make it more confusing ! 2w
Alora Love the idea of an owned and non owned tbr! 2w
Bookish.SAM @Clwojick whoa... I didn‘t know you could hide a hashtag ?!? On that note... I sort of wish there was a way to follow hashtags @ljuliel ... or is there and I just don‘t know about it either? 2w
ljuliel @Bookish.SAM I‘m not a very good one to ask about the hashtag follows and unfollows . I can‘t get mine to work from online, so it apparently doesn‘t work for everyone. Hopefully someone will look into this. 2w
Crazeedi I didnt know you could hide a hashtag either. So much I dont know even after 3 years. I'm going to answer this after I've considered the questions a bit. I love Litsy 2w
Clwojick @Bookish.SAM if you go onto the Litsy website, not the app, and go to your profile settings and scroll down, there‘s a “Mute Hashtags” option. There‘s no option to follow a hashtag yet though. I agree that would be nice 2w
Clwojick @Crazeedi the option to mute hashtags was just added back in May, I believe. 2w
effani I'm new here, but I've been surprised at how little conversation there is in comments. It seems like the culture is to hit the “like“ button and move on, even if the poster asked a question. It's interesting to hear that hasn't always been the case. 2w
Clwojick @effani it definitely wasn‘t! I‘m not sure what exactly has changed about it. I know we all have our antisocial days, and we don‘t want to communicate too much, but I try to make a point of going back the next day and comments or reposting etc. @MrBook made a good point about just taking 15 minutes a day to actually reach out to one another and get give our fellow Littens the love they deserve. 🥰 2w
AnneCecilie I love your answer to no. 3. That would be great 2w
Lizpixie Yes, about conversation! It‘s disheartening to write a post with a question in it, even one as simple as Should I Read Book A or B? and not get any response. We used to talk a lot more when I first joined over 3yrs ago #OGsOfLitsy 2w
Clwojick @Lizpixie exactly! There used to be more free flowing communication. We would get tabs on each other, and wish each other well on big days, check up on each other if we haven‘t posted in a few days, ask how someone‘s sick cat is doing, or ask how the first few days at their new job is. I RARELY see that anymore. And I don‘t know if it‘s cause people stapling sharing those moments in their life‘s, or if others stopped caring enough to check in. 2w
gradcat @Bookish.SAM If you know what you‘re looking for, you could always find your favorite hashtags in the search feature under tags...that way, you can get right to them. It will help even if you only remember the first word. ♥️ 2w
RainyDayReading I agree with #6. I joined Litsy in 2017 and was seeing all these conversations in the comments between people like they had been friends for years! I was really hopeful that I would be able to forge friendships like that here but it never happened. I'm not sure what changed or when it changed but it did. I thought for a while that maybe it was because I don't read the same things as everyone else but I don't know. 2w
Clwojick @RainyDayReading I don‘t think it‘s has anything to do with what you read, I think it‘s just the way that Litsy has evolved 2w

Crimson613 What do team captains do? 👀 2w
Clwojick @Crimson613 they would be in charge of tracking their teammates points, and reposting the daily games & tagging their team members in them 2w
Crimson613 @Clwojick and when you mention read from your tbr, is that from somewhere? Do we make it before the event? Or how does that work? 2w
Clwojick @Crimson613 Your TBR is just your personal list of books you want to read. You can stack them in this app. But if you have a “to read“ list on any other app, or a handwritten list that works too... As well as the obvious unread books that you own. My TBR is in the thousands, so i have to work on lowering that. 😅 2w
Crimson613 @Clwojick i see, i've only added two on litsy to my stacks but i do have a tbr on goodreads and a ton of books i own that need to be read ^^;;; so those would work? would i need to share them on litsy? i guess idk how the tbr points would be calculated... 2w
Clwojick @Crimson613 no, you dont need to add them on prior to the start of the event. When you finish reading a book that month, you would simply tag myself and @stayCurious, and your team captain... if you choose not to be a TC yourself, and then use the hashtag #TBRread if its one you've been meaning to read, or #ImpulseRead if it's a book that is completely new to you, but you came across on Libby or at the Library and decided to read. 2w
Clwojick @Crimson613 So long as everyone uses #ImpulseRead, #TBRread, or #HolidayRead their team captain will be able to easily track their points. 2w
Crimson613 @Clwojick ohhhh ok 👌👌 signed up :) this sounds fun!! 2w

Clwojick @SaturnDoo Oh i love your #bujo spreads! Can't wait to see them! Maybe I'll actually do one for this event! i meant to last month, but ended up being totally distracted. 2w

Clwojick Absolutely! A lot of the games with be Christmas related because that was was I was able to find, but if you have any suggestion for Hanukkah games or posts that you find please send them my way and we can repost them for points. We are trying to be as inclusive as possible ♥️ @Insightsintobooks 2w

Hello my lovely Littens! After the complete success of #Scarathlon, I knew I‘d have to get something in the works for a Christmas/Winter themed event. Unfortunately, @TheReadingMermaid will not be able to cohost this event with me, so before I fully plan #WinterGames, I thought I would like to see how many people are interested in participating, and if needed would anyone be willing to be a team captain.

↘️Continues below↙️

Clwojick As with the Halloween event, there will be a point value for different things. Reading books, watching movies or shows, and playing a ton of games! Since Xmas is all about spending time with family, there will be a few additional mini challenges up for points, as well. Please comment if you‘d be interested in participating. Depending on how many people are interested, I‘d like to have smaller teams this round. Sign up form to come shortly ♥️ (edited) 2w

Scochrane26 Would I have to read Christmas-related books? I‘m very bah-humbug about Christmas, but the games, recipes, maybe a few movies sound fun. 2w
AsYouWish Oh my stars!!! This sounds amazing!!! I am totally interested in participating!!! 2w
Clwojick @Scochrane26 You don‘t have to do anything you don‘t want to, Love. There will be a point value for Xmas books and movies, but there will also be a point value for all other genres. We won‘t be separating specific genres like we did with mystery/horror for Halloween. 2w
Linsy I‘m there!! Can‘t be a team captain, unfortunately, but I‘m definitely up to participate! 2w
Clwojick @AsYouWish Yay! Glad that you‘re excited! 😍😍😍 2w

jenniferw88 I'm interested. 2w
Scochrane26 @Clwojick Ok, I‘m interested, too. I usually read a lot during December. 2w
Clwojick @Scochrane26 I‘m still rolling around some ideas, but I was thinking of having a higher point value for books that are on your #TBR vs impulse reads. I think that would be an added incentive to tackle those #MountTBRs before the end of the year. 2w
teebe Definitely interested! I couldn‘t participate in the Halloween one because of work, so I‘m excited for a Christmas one🎄 2w
Scochrane26 @Clwojick that would be perfect for me. I usually read more books that I own or are on my tbr as a way to finish out the year. I already have several I want to read by end of yr. 2w

StayCurious I‘d be willing to be a team captain and help out in any way you need! I‘m super into the holidays. 2w
Liatrek I‘m totally in😊 would this be tied with a Christmas swap or just books and games? 2w
kezzlou85 I'd be interested too. 2w
Jadams1776 Sounds fun! 2w
lele1432 Sounds fun! This winter will be pretty busy for me but I'd love to participate as much as possible! 2w
BookwormAHN I'm definitely interested 😸 2w
Chili I would be interested. Especially if I could knock some books off Mount TBR. 2w
Kimberlone Sounds fun, will it be similar to #Scarathlon? I would definitely try to participate! 2w
RainyDayReading I‘d be interested! 2w
Clwojick @Liatrek I don‘t have a swap planned, but if that‘s something that a lot of people are into we can consider it. I know Xmas is expensive for so many people, that maybe something like Swapping Xmas cards would be more affordable ♥️ 2w
Clwojick @Kimberlone very similar to Scarathlon with points. 2w
Clwojick @StayCurious Oh thank you thank you! I‘m hoping to break it down into smaller teams to make it a bit easier on the team captains for point tracking. I was easily spending an hour or two a day tracking all the TeamSlaughter points 😂 I know that‘s a lot to ask out of someone, especially around the holidays, so smaller teams should make things easier 2w
Laughterhp I‘d be interested. I‘ll probably be busy in December so may not to participate as much as I did in October. I‘ve already started making lists of Xmas books I want to read! 2w
StayCurious @Clwojick anything you need, let me know. I can help find x-mas games and come up with challenges so that it doesn't all fall on you. I know you and Tamara had several months to plan Scarathlon - and December is fast approaching. 2w
Shakespearience I love the idea! Not sure I could help sponsor a team but if they were smaller teams I could possibly do it. Would want to hear more about theme/points and what it would look like. 2w
Clwojick @StayCurious oh I have LOADS of games. I have about 75 saved on my phone lolol 😅 Considering coming up with a photochallenge, though I‘m not sure yet. What do you think? 2w
StayCurious @Clwojick photo challenges are fun - just like the Halloween costumes, we could do Ugly Christmas Sweaters, or decorated trees or houses. 2w
Clwojick @StayCurious are you on insta? I normally use insta chat to do the behind the scenes planning, since I don‘t have fb 2w
StayCurious @Clwojick I am - reneemitchell87. 2w
ElizaMarie I‘m interested but not sure how much time I have to participate during the holidays (still planning my holidays now) 2w
Clwojick @ElizaMarie That‘s the good thing with these events. There will be lots of games to play whenever you can participate, but it‘s not necessary to do them all. All in all, it‘s just about having fun and getting into the Xmas spirits alongside your Litsy fam! ♥️ 2w
Clwojick @Shakespearience there will be a starter point breakdown on the sign up form. 2w
JacqMac It sounds really fun, but I just know I won‘t have the time to commit. I wish I could. Good luck! 2w
thereadingunicorn Sound great I am in 2w
LibrarianRyan I could be persuaded to be a captain. I have a lot of time off in December. I will have a few days in No-Man's land (my parents house on the nature preserve.) right around Christmas but I can play catch up. I get some cell service, but not much and not fast. But pops will bring the hot spot home and that will help. 2w
ElizaMarie @Clwojick that‘s what I love about these groups! 2w
Charityann Sounds like fun! I‘d love to participate. 😊 2w
BarkingMadRun I would love to play and will gladly bring a captain 2w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Thanks for the invite, but I‘m going to set the next one out. I have a few other reading challenges for the year I want to concentrate on and I don‘t think any fit into any Christmas theme. Maybe I‘ll catch you another time. Have lots of fun though!! 2w
MidnightBookGirl I'm totally in for a challenge. I'd be willing to help captain if the teams were small. 2w
Stacypatrice I‘ll be sitting this one out but cheering you all on with my self-made Pom-Pons and my lame cheers.... “rah rah READ!!!!” 2w
Clwojick @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I just posted the signup form which has the point breakdown. The reading may still fit into your plans, as the points are for impulse vs TBR, as opposed to set genres. Xmas books are obviously still on there though 😉 2w
madamereadsalot1 I would love to play! I wouldn't be a good team captain though with my schedule. 😅 2w
chaoticgoodhufflepuff 🎄❄️🎄❄️🎄❄️🎄 This is going to be amazing! 2w
FantasyChick I don't read much for holiday books but I'm in for the fun!! Had a blast last time. Let me know if you need another set of hands to help out!! I take most of December off work so I've got some spare time coming up 😉 2w
4thhouseontheleft Depends on how Christmasy it is. I don‘t read many Xmas books and don‘t celebrate the holiday, but if it is multiple holiday inclusive (Chanukah, Yule etc), then maybe. Unless I can be the Grinch or Scrooge. 😂😂😂 2w
Clwojick @4thhouseontheleft There are a lot of holiday themed games. But as for reading, it‘s more based on Reading off of your TBR as opposed to reading a specific genre 2w
Godpants I could be in. I have a ways to go to finish my goodreads goal so this will help. 😊 2w
kymmiesreads I‘d love to participate! 2w

Finished off the tagged book in one sitting last night, and I‘m using it for my free space. Although it certainly wasn‘t the best book ever, it made me laugh... and also mentally facepalm a lot! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Some people.... 😂 #NFNov

I‘m heading straight into my third #NFNov audiobook for the day while I get all comfy and ready for bed. Another book that‘s been on my personal shelf for far too long. I‘ll be jumping between the audiobook and the physical book for this one.

Sweet dreams, my fellow Littens! ♥️

Jumping straight into this true crime audiobook by James Patterson for #NFNov, while I make some Christmas light cutouts. I‘ll be turning them into garland to decorate the clinic I work at. I try to make our clinic warm and welcoming, especially near the holidays, as many of our patients bring in their children. The little ones seem to love all the decorations. ♥️

AprilMae Love this idea! Prior to having a cricut I made a lot of decorations for the hotel I worked at by hand, including large Christmas lights to put employees names on for Christmas! 3w
Clwojick @AprilMae Yes! I can totally relate! Sometimes I‘m a bit in awe over what I used to do by hand before having this lovely machine. 3w

The one on the bottom, second last is “On your TBR for 3+ Years”. I know it‘s kind of hard to read.

Clwojick @BGam Hello! There is no set list of books to read. The idea is just that you read as much non fiction during the month of November as possible.

Hey #TeamSlaughter!

The #TriptychBuddyRead discussion is finally open! It‘s seems that it was a pretty good divide between those of you who loved it, gave it a so-so, and didn‘t enjoy it at all. I love to hear your thoughts!

Please comment below your thoughts on the book, and let‘s have a chat amongst the team!

🌟5points per comment🌟

rsteve388 It was okay... I listened to an abridged version which I didn't realize until after I read it I am sure the full version was better. I did enjoy how the story was narrated from different perspectives including the actual killers. 3w
See All 25 Comments
Clwojick @rsteve388 I jumped between the physical book and the audiobook, which I enjoyed well enough. I probably would‘ve enjoyed it more had I stuck to the physical book only, since I found the narrators female voice was a bit annoying lol. 3w
rsteve388 Yeah ugh that's the worst when you can't stand their voice. Ruins the story. :( 3w
Clwojick As for the story itself... In true #KarinSlaughter fashion, I knew it would be dark and gritty, as most of her other books are. I didn‘t find it as gritty as some of her other books, but it still had its moments that make my flinch. I love Will Trent, and found that myself sympathizing with him as the story progressed. 3w
Clwojick I also liked that she kind of gave away the killer early on in the book. The mystery isn‘t who‘s doing the crimes, but how and if they will get caught. 🙌🏻 3w
Stacypatrice I really enjoyed this book and now a new Karin Slaughter fan! 3w
Clwojick @Stacypatrice yes! I have a few more of her books on my shelf that are bling moved up on the list! 3w
Lizpixie I enjoyed it, it wasn‘t her best by a long shot, but it introduces Will & his diabolical wife Angie, which is its highlight. I didn‘t like Will at first, mainly because I loved Jeffrey so much, but he‘s grown on me💁🏻‍♀️ 3w
EadieB I've read all of Karin Slaughter's books. I think it's best if you start with the Grant County series before the Will Trent series as that's the beginning of the timeline for Sara and Jeffrey. Her last book, The Last Widow, I did not enjoy as much as it got too political but hopefully she won't keep the series going in that direction. 3w
Charityann I enjoyed this book. I hadn‘t heard of Karin Slaughter before, but now I‘ll read more of her stuff. 🎃 3w
Liatrek I‘m so glad this was our team buddy read because it introduced me to Karin Slaughter and this amazing series. I enjoyed the characters and the story. I really like her style of writing and also read the The Good Daughter. I can‘t wait to dive into the rest of the series😊🎃 3w
Clwojick @Lizpixie surprisingly enough, this was my first of her Will Trent books. ☺️ I can‘t wait to read on. 3w
Clwojick @EadieB Thanks for the suggestion! I‘ll keep that in mind. ☺️ 3w
Clwojick @Charityann I‘ll admit to reading more of her stand alone books, but I‘ll definitely be continuing with this series too. Some of the members in the group were talking about starting a #SlaughterBookClub ♥️♥️♥️ 3w
Clwojick @Liatrek woohoo! I‘m glad I chose a good one! I‘ve been familiar with the author for a while now, but I‘m happy to see that this event has introduced her to other. 🧡 3w
Bookwormjillk This book was more violent than what I would normally stick with, but the twists and turns kept me going. As someone mentioned above it was different knowing who the killer was but not how they‘ll be caught. I‘ll read more of this series but after reading this and Misery in one month I need a break from unplanned amputations for a while 🤪 3w
Sarahreadstoomuch I was really glad to read this, even if I didn‘t like how poorly all the ladies were characterized or the audiobook narrator. I‘ve never read books like this, and I‘m encouraged to try more. I did like the twists and some of the “mic drop” moments. 3w
FantasyChick Slaughter's been on my radar for a while now but I haven't had a chance to pick up one of the books yet. I'm glad I started with this one! I enjoyed the twists and I actually really like books that give away the killer from the beginning. The guessing to how they will get caught is exciting! I also really liked all the connections between the characters. Looking forward to continuing the series 3w
hes7 I‘ve only read a couple of Slaughter‘s books now, but I did not enjoy this one as much as the other. Will was probably the only character I liked, which made it hard to keep caring through the end of the book. It did have some good twists and surprising connections, though, that I appreciated. 3w
4thhouseontheleft I thought it was okay. I would have probably liked it more if I hadn‘t listened to the audiobook. The narrator was terrible, especially when doing the female characters. 3w
Clwojick @4thhouseontheleft You must have listened to the same audiobook as me! 😂 I totally agree with that. 3w
samanthagutt I loved the book! I completely agree with @Clwojick that it was cool to know the killer so early on in the book, because it actually was a huge shock to find out that the detective Michael was John‘s cousin Woody! I think if she waited until the end I would have figured it out myself and it wouldn‘t have had that same “shock” factor. I really found Angie irritating, to me she was the worst part about the book. Overall I loved it! 3w
4thhouseontheleft @clwojick Probably! His narration was so distracting! I definitely plan to read more in the series, but not on audio! 3w

kamoorephoto I‘ve really enjoyed it. It has kept me connected to something and given me something to keep my reading on track on track with for October, and it‘s been a REALLY rough month for me (well, the last few months).
