I pretend that I read these books so I can make sure they‘re ok for my nieces and nephew but I think we all know that I read them because they‘re funny and smart and adorable. 🦄

LiteraryinLawrence They are soooo cute. I only read the first couple. Thanks for the reminder that I should get back into them! 2y

Thunderstorms knocked out our power about 6 hours ago. What‘s a gal to do but read a somewhat-work-related-book by headlamp?

DaveGreen7777 Hope you get your electricity back soon! 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds like a great reading day...thank goodness it‘s daylight and not to hot/or cold. We had a bunch of trees down here overnight too, so I‘m considering myself lucky. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Spoke too soon... my power went out at about 7 last night and just now came back on (hopefully it stays on). I hope yours is back on now too. (edited) 2y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Plus, I think I need to invest in a headlamp now.... 2y
Hoopiefoot @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Oh no! I‘m glad you have power again & hope you didn‘t lose much food in the fridge/freezer! We were out for about 8 hours yesterday. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Hoopiefoot We kept them closed to keep the cold air in, and so far, I think everything eeked through....we were lucky in that regard that it was a cold and overcast day today...so cold in the house too. We ordered out and picked up warm food for lunch and otherwise snuggled under the covers, went to bed early last night and read/napped today. 2y
Hoopiefoot @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Inconveniences aside, that sounds like a pretty nice evening 🙂 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Hoopiefoot Funny, that‘s what I thought when you posted your post...quiet reading, at least it‘s spring and not freezing winter or humid summer. I think I was too cavalier and jinxed myself. It was definitely cold in my house today, hence the snuggling in the beds to read. 😂. But yes, over all I was fine and enjoyed my reading time.... my mom missed her TV though, and my nephew with no games...you‘d have thought it was a historic tragedy.😂 2y

Celebrating International Women‘s Day by learning more about Mary Ann Shadd Cary. Born in Wilmington, DE to free black parents in 1823, she was an educator, the 1st African American woman to publish and edit a newspaper in North America, a lawyer, and much more. I learned about her while researching a work project and now I‘m completely fascinated by her life.

I read this 10 years ago and it was a delightfully immersive reading experience. It‘s equally as immersive and delightful on audio now, although this experience is heavier knowing that Bourdain is no longer in this world.

AvidReader25 I loved this too. I think it would be hard to reread it now. 3y

I‘ve decided I‘m not allowed to buy any more books until I read all of these first. I also have a giant stack of holds from the library. Although I‘ll miss the rush of buying new books for a few months, I don‘t think I‘ll have any trouble finding something to read.

These are the books I‘m giving to my nieces & nephew for their Dec. birthdays and Christmas. True confession: I‘m reading/rereading them all before I wrap them up.
