The Corfu Trilogy | Gerald Durrell
post image

We are big fans of the Durrells in Corfu show and I downloaded for free the book it was based on... my 10 year old son is reading it on my kindle as we take the bus to head into Manhattan to see the Rockettes at Radio City. #raisingreaders #startingtheholidayseason

Lifeisasnap Great way to start it off public transit and a good book. Enjoy the day! 16h
Blueberry My son enjoyed it also and then read the other two in the trilogy 14h

TheAromaofBooks Wow that sounds so delicious!! Why is homemade bread the best food in the world?! 2d
Jerdencon @TheAromaofBooks I could eat the whole thing in one sitting! And I made it in the bread maker so it‘s super easy! #bestinventionever 2d
jb72 And now I want to go make some bread. 🍞 2d
TheAromaofBooks Yesss I love my breadmaker! I also sometimes buy frozen bread dough already in loaves, so all you have to do is let it sit out the thaw/rise for several hours, and then bake it. SO GOOD. NO WORK. :-D 2d

5. Hard cover or paper back?
#friyayintro @howjessreads

Mandoul Boggle is a classic! I would also vote paper back 😃 4d
Crazeedi Paperback, but not the little ones! 4d
ImperfectCJ ❤️❤️❤️ Boggle! And hardcover usually, but paperback if I plan to write/underline extensively. 4d
See All 18 Comments
TheDaysGoBy Paperback 4d
sherryvdh Paperback because it fits in my purse much easier. 4d
TheLibrarian Hardcover because it's easier to keep them in good condition. 4d
ljuliel Paperback. More lightweight. 4d
ShelfRighteous Hardcover if I just have to preserve it on my bookshelf. Paperbacks are more practical to read. 4d
Bklover Paperback! 4d
AmyK1 Paperback. They‘re cheaper and take up less space. 4d
wanderinglynn Paperback for reading. But hardcover if it‘s a special edition or one I want to keep. 4d
hes7 I don‘t know that I really have a preference. I‘ll take whatever. 4d
Laughterhp Usually paperback! It‘s cheaper and not as heavy to stick in my purse! 4d
Balibee146 Mostly paperback... Love a floppy one... Often American editions 👍 4d
TheAromaofBooks I just like binding that lets the book stay open when I am reading it! Sometimes HC or sometimes PB, whichever one let's me keep my hands free!! 3d
TheEllieMo I love a hardback 3d
AmandaEve Floppy paperbacks! 3d
Crimson613 Paperback because they're cheaper :))))) 3d

These are my books that I‘m in the middle of and will be continuing on for #litsypartyofone Not sure how many hours I‘ll get on the #24b4monday readathon (I‘ll be happy with 4 or 5!) because of, you know, life and responsibilities lol.
So I‘ll mostly be having a #Litsypartyofone this weekend in honor of @MrBook milestone #mrbook1inamillion

1. I‘d love to chat with JK Rowling
2. Honestly - I just would want to know what her normal life is like and how her brain works! Lol
3. Not many actually - I hate clutter and live in an apartment and love my library and never reread books so not that many. Once I read a book I usually pass it on to someone or donate it.

ljuliel You sound like me regarding books. I also hate clutter, rarely reread , and give books to others when done so I don‘t have a big backlog. Plus it bothers me to have lots of books waiting their turn. I know it sounds weird, but I guess we al have our quirks. 6d

1. Most of all the comraderie
2. Posts about certain genres of books I don‘t like but that‘s to be expected
3. Not sure
4. Every day/every other day
5. I love the swaps, questionnaires and read alongs
6. Not sure - I kinda like it the way it is but have also noticed people leaving... not sure why. Maybe a way to put all book posts one place and the questionnaires and swaps somewhere else.
@ljuliel
#keeplitsyactive

ljuliel Thanks for your reply . I agree, it‘d be great to have those areas separated if there‘s a way they can do it. 6d
MuddyPuddle Yup, I‘ve backed off because of all the questionnaires and back-and-forth about book swaps. Not so interesting if you‘re just looking for booktalk. 6d
Crazeedi That's a great suggestion!! 6d
ImperfectCJ I, too, like the suggestion to filter/sort book posts separate from questionnaires and swaps. 6d
TheAromaofBooks Yes, if you could filter by review/blurb/quote and added another category for “other“ or some such, that would be quite helpful. For instance, I didn't mind everyone participating in the Halloween contest/points thing, but the amount of posts concerning just that and not actual books was somewhat overwhelming. 5d
