I do love this book. Sometimes it is for the soap opera, sometimes it is for the sass. #pemberlittens

15 servings potatoes (freezer)
6 servings squash (freezer)
2 quarts of fire cider
1 quart elderberry cough syrup

12 hrs of duma key listened to.

Is anyone using story graph?? I'm using it to track my buddy reads for #losersclub & #pemberlittens and really liking it! Is the pro worth it?

wanderinglynn I love Story Graph. And I did pay to upgrade, but I can‘t remember now what the differences are between the free version & paid. I mostly upgraded to support SG and help provide an alternative to Amazon-owned GR. 4w

I love oklahoma. So much of it is amazing. But the dark sides are starting to get more and more frustrating. The QR code provided was for the New York city public library.

My nephew's school is currently banning Anne Frank, To Kill a Mockingbird, and most curriculum concerning the Holocaust, integration, and some Oklahoma history.

What's happening in your area? I'm genuinely curious.

WorldsOkayestStepMom I'm in Oklahoma too, and agree that parts of it are amazing! 1mo
Bookwomble So much of the news from the USA sounds like the country is slipping into a new Dark Age 🙁 I don't mean to be disrespectful, and I have to say that the enlightened posts of US Littens does give me cause for hope that the tide will turn 🤞🏻❤️ 1mo

Saknicole I am always worried as a ELA teacher when I hear this news. This is becoming such common news that it is terrifying. The number one thing I can recommend is going to school board meetings. They only listen to educators so much, but it‘s parents and community members they listen to more. Also kids speaking at the meetings. (edited) 1mo
ErinSueMreads @Bookwomble honestly I couldnt agree more. It's so scary what's happening here right now. I often am curious as to what the rest of the world sees and what they think 1mo
ErinSueMreads @Saknicole the school district here is in a really bad place and the unfortunate part about Oklahoma is that a lot of people in the rural communities agree with the moves they are making. There are voices that could make a difference, but it's all a big family, old family, money game in a lot of places. 1mo
Saknicole My district in Alaska is still safe and I am about to start teaching TKMB to my freshman as I do yearly. Another district tried to remove Gatsby and other classic texts a few years ago but backtracked after huge Backlash. I hope there is enough attention there to change that tide. 1mo
ErinSueMreads @Saknicole me too. I'm so glad you are still teaching those. It's so scary to me...scary to the point where it's like "gosh do I even want to have children?" 1mo
Saknicole Same- but as an education I look forward to having more parents who support the opportunities for learning and reading for all students! 1mo

Blerdgal_Fenix I lived in Oklahoma for over a decade. I know the struggle in living in a state that claims to be history but struggles with being honest with its self. I hate to see the state go backwards and act like their history is marked with blood & pain. 1mo
ErinSueMreads @Saknicole that's an excellent outlook 💜 1mo

WorldsOkayestStepMom 🤣 You're not wrong. 1mo
ErinSueMreads @TheBookHippie what! No! A pregnancy clinic?!? Is it attached to the bookstore??? They can sell the anti abortion safe for consumption no gayyyyssss reads and then just send them right next door for their male approved lay down only child births. 1mo
TheBookHippie @ErinSueMreads a few blocks apart it‘s a focus on the family bookstore the pregnancy place is called positive choices 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1mo

Readergrrl Great review! I‘m another huge fan of Stephen King‘s. I started reading King in my very early teens (I‘m now 53) and feel like I‘ve grown up with him. My father ran into him at a bookstore when we lived in Bangor back in the 70s. My dad always said that Stephen King was the nicest guy you could meet. I follow him on social media and I‘m thrilled to learn that we share many attitudes toward many things. Probably because he “helped” raise me! 😝 2mo

Let me know if you can help her out. Especially if you have a blog or Instagram you wouldn't mind throwing it up on. She's doing a free pdf for reviewers. Her name is Zoe Nauman.

I know #beltanebox is supposed to be a surprise but I wanted to give @TheBookHippie a heads-up. They are splitting your package into like four different boxes. I had to do Amazon because the post office is tacking on all kinds of surcharges right now. It is costing as much to ship swaps as it is to buy the stuff. I shipped a smallish box and they charged me thirty damn dollars the other day. Sorry it will be so impersonal! Card coming too!

TheBookHippie No worries I had to do the same thing!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️ 5mo

'Salem's Lot | Stephen King
post image

I was wondering why everyone was so quiet today...my #tarottakeover post for yesterday never posted!!!

The last draw is the unknown. What is underneath. What worries us. And of course the card is the Three of Swords. A card steeped in isolation, heartbreak, and betrayal. They just can't ever be polite can there?

ErinSueMreads I chose Salem's lot because the mains are so isolated and terrified by the end of the book. They eventually go burn the whole town to the ground! 7mo

ErinSueMreads They are mineral lick buckets left over from our cows 😂😂😂 totally stole them out of the burn pile. I have so many things started. I usually do a huge herb garden. In these I'll do tomatoes, okra, broccoli, green beans, corn, who knows what else 😂 7mo
janeycanuck Oh, man… I can‘t wait to get back into the veggie/fruit gardens. Do you eat everything as you grow it or do you do a lot of canning? 7mo

The Foxfire 45th Anniversary Book: Singin', Praisin', Raisin' | Joyce Green, Foxfire Students, Casi Best
post image

Day 4 of #tarottakeover is all about the known aspects of life. This is what is known, what is dominant in our lives, and what is focused on.

The card for the day is the Hierophant. It is all about tradition, ceremony, practice, religious beliefs, and conformity. What is your take on how this all fits?

@amyg also mentioned the belief of being gifted your deck. What are everyone's else's beliefs. No need to discuss stealing. That's wrong kids.

ErinSueMreads
My book choice is foxfire: 1. It is a study in tradition in the Appalachian wilderness. If you are interested in homesteading, history, or primitive living it's a must read. There is a whole series that was put together by high schoolers in the sixties who interviewed old timers from the Appalachian mountains and documented their traditions, beliefs, and way of life beautifully in 12 volumes.

StaceGhost I was always told you should be gifted your deck but I have a different idea of what constitutes a gift, especially after reading Braiding Sweetgrass. The artist providing the imagery is gifting their vision, so every deck is a gift. TLDR: Buy all the decks you want! 😂 (edited) 7mo
AmyG My daughter -in-law had told me it should be gifted. I had no idea, but I like the idea. (edited) 7mo

Sorry for the late #tarottakeover post. Don't you hate when real life gets in the way of litsy? Anywayyyyy

Today's draw is for the third spot. It represents the future, should we keep going the way we are with our previous draw.

Today's card is the five of Wands. It represents struggle and strife, especially internal conflicts.

What are your interpretations? I can't wait to see your books. My book is below.

ErinSueMreads These books are like a fever dream for me. I absolutely loved the first one and everything after that was a train wreck I couldn't stop watching. HOWEVER when I say this book is perfect for conflict....tatiana and Alexander spend about 95,000 pages struggling against the gates and trying to come together to save their relationship. It's a hot mess. 7mo
ErinSueMreads *fates.... 7mo
sprainedbrain Ok so I‘m ridiculously behind but going to post mine today anyway. I‘m here to say that I completely agree about this series. I loved The Bronze Horseman with every fiber of being… second book was a disappointment, but the last one? Omg. She destroyed my love for those characters completely and I‘m still mad. 😞 7mo

11.22.63 | Stephen King
post image

Day 2 of #tarottakeover is all about our past and how we got to the current sitch with the Nine of Swords. The card drawn is the Two of Cups....reversed....makes sense.

Sorry guys we know the tarot is never rainbows and sunshine 😂😂

Typically this signifies disharmony and conflict, often associated with issues in love or commerce depending on your spread and your conflict.

My book explanation is below!

ErinSueMreads I am listening to 11.22.63 right now and George-jake is in fort worth. Lee Harvey Oswald is beating on marina regularly and then loving on her right after...Sadie and George-jake are broken up. Everything is a disaster. 7mo
sprainedbrain Just once, I‘d like to get a rainbows and sunshine spread. 😂 7mo

Shadowscapes Tarot | Barbara Moore, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law
post image

Day 1 of #tarottakeover!

I don't usually do spreads when I do photo challenges because I find that they end up being focused mostly on my energy. BUT the more I thought about this ominous start the more I thought it was reflective of the world mood currently.

The nine of swords is all about fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. The center spot represents the current situation the drawer faces.

My book is Skin Game from Dresden files. Spoilers 👇

ErinSueMreads Harry has been strapped with the mantle of the winter knight and is being forced to do mabs will, which is very much against his own. H le is fighting to stay a step ahead of the people he is being forced to work with, they happen to be some of his biggest enemies. The whole time he's falling apart inside terrified he's turning into a monster and terrified he won't be able to keep his friends and family safe. 7mo

AmandaBlaze @ErinSueMreads Destroyer of Light by Jennifer Marie Bridgett definitely has a lot of fear and uncertainty. 7mo
ErinSueMreads I imagine it would have to @amandablaze that synopsis has a lot going on 😂😂 7mo
sprainedbrain I see 👀 me tagged, but for some reason I didn‘t get a notification! Going to play catch up now. 😂 7mo
Chrissyreadit There are so many directions I could go in with this. And I‘m oddly satisfied that the card seemed to pick up on a universal/collective vibe. 7mo
AmyG I am new to tarot and I find this fascinating that the card picked upon the worlds feelings right now. 7mo
ErinSueMreads Well dang it @sprainedbrain I wonder if it's spelled wrong and I'm missing it? 7mo
ErinSueMreads Yeah no kidding @chrissyreadit the tarot is a spooky mistress. I have been doing it for yearsssss and it still catches me like that regularly. 7mo
ErinSueMreads @amyg welcome to the club! Are you new to the spooky life? An old hat? Just dabbling in tarot? I'm so curious! 7mo
sprainedbrain Nah, I think it‘s my phone or Litsy or who knows. 😂 7mo
ErinSueMreads I think litsy only ever sends me about half my notifications. I'll get like three and then open the app and I've got twenty sitting there 7mo
AmyG I am very new. I just got my Osana swap and am praying tnere is a tarot deck in there. If not, my daughter said she would get one for me (My DIl says I shouldn‘t buy my own deck). I have a book on reading the tarot from another swap. 7mo

Are you familiar with Ostara? It's the Spring equinox! It's a celebration of spring, new beginnings, fertility, and birth. Easter as we know it originated from the original Ostara celebrations which includes food, dancing, singing, and all kinds of fun and happy things.

The spread we are using is a simple five card cross. Each day I will draw a card and post the meaning of the draw spot and the card. Then you post a book you think associates!

ErinSueMreads If you want to post your interpretation or anything else as well feel free. If you miss a day no worries! Jump back in. If you want to add a friend to the tag list have them let me know. I'll post our first draw this evening. 7mo

Can you believe it's been 2 flipping years since we did a #tarottakeover ??? I think we should have an #ostara themed one to celebrate my return to litsy. Who is in????

Not familiar? I draw a card every morning and tag everyone interested. You post a book you associate with that card. I think this time though we will do a full draw and spread leading up to Ostara rather than just pulling cards. Comment if you want to be tagged! More info 👇👇
