Here's my new tarot deck resting after a super intense reading. I'm super tired from it too but I still want more. This work feels really good to me actually.

I'm starting to learn tarot, which I've sort of always been curious about about. Got this from the library and read it cover to cover in less than 16 hours (which includes sleeping). My first deck is on it's way and should be arriving tomorrow, along with my own copy of this book. I can't wait to get started!

CoffeeCatsBooks What deck did you get? 2mo

I went to a clowns only screening of It Chapter 2 last night. This is before. The after photo was a lot messier because I had just cried for three hours. There were flaws of course, but that was good, y'all.

My storytime thing I am doing on YouTube, which was supposed to be starting there today, is only having a soft release today. I was not able to get my channel up and running soon enough, so I can't stream there yet. I'll post it tonight after I stream it on Facebook, but feel free to subscribe now for updates! (Book will be The Secret Garden!) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJA1K5F84tRxN8b8R1d1ikw?view_as=subscriber

I got a new phone and I have some audiobooks from audiobook sync's summer freebies that I can't figure out how to transfer over. I looked up how much they would cost to replace and, as I suspected, it is prohibitive. Does anyone have any experience with this? I'd love to keep the books without having to keep the phone if at all possible.

Megabooks There‘s no way to just download and sign into the app with your account name/email and password? I‘m not familiar with this service, but that‘s how it‘s worked for me with other services. 3mo
RiaWritten @Megabooks Unfortunately it seems they're not located in the cloud anywhere. When I downloaded the app on the new device it had no record of them. 3mo
Megabooks @RiaWritten Yikes!!!!!! I‘m so sorry! 3mo
RiaWritten @Megabooks It's ok! I've essentially decided to hold onto the other phone just to listen to those. Maybe I'll be able to knock them all out in a year! Could be a fun challenge. 😸 3mo

As some sort of bizarre coping mechanism, during the last couple weeks of classes I somehow brought home 30 LIBRARY BOOKS. Here are the ones that aren‘t picture books or currently on my mother‘s desk. (She wanted to read it. What can I say? I‘m an enabler.) Now that I‘m done with the semester I can actually maybe read some of them! But where to begin?
