1. The people, the book photos, recommendations and all the love!
2. Hmm...
3. More stickers, auto populate hashtags, TBR list searches & categories
4. Usually 4-5 times a week
5. I do although I haven‘t participated in read along yet.
6. More interaction perhaps?

ljuliel Thank you. I think we can all work on the interaction thing. Even if we ramp it up and reply to someone every day that‘d get conversations going again. 😊 6d

“Women shouldn‘t judge one another‘s lives, if we haven‘t been through one another‘s fires.”
I‘ll admit that I feel judged often and I don‘t know why...
#quote #nonfiction

ljuliel Excellent quote. I agree 100%. I don‘t think most people “ get me”, and I‘m often judged without them knowing why I‘ve had to make some of the decisions I‘ve made , and why I stay to myself so much now. I need my space. I like myself whether anyone else does or not. 6d
Sharpeipup @ljuliel Exactly and I feel myself getting quiet these past few days... 6d
ljuliel I think we all go through times like this. Peaks and valleys. We all sorta walk our own paths through life to come out at the end, hopefully where we want to be. As we get older ( I should know about that part), we need to learn to be comfortable and content with ourselves and learn that we aren‘t here to make everyone else happy.We have to find OUR happiness. It‘ll come. Maybe we are both in a valley, possibly getting ready to hit a peak again. 6d
Texreader Great quote. Incredibly true. Good food for thought. I may have to print this quote out and post it at work 6d

First time attempting to read a book in another language...any tips?

Sace Only stop to look up words you absolutely need to look up for understanding. 3w
Lcsmcat I agree with @Sace - try to get as much from context as you can so you‘re not going back and forth from one language to the next. I sometimes use index cards as bookmarks and write down unfamiliar words to look up later rather than stopping the flow of the story. 3w
Sharpeipup @Sace @Lcsmcat Thank you for that advice! 3w
AnneCecilie What @Sace said. But also to take your time. The first book I read in a foreign language (English), I think I used close to 30 min on one page. I was probably reading above my language level. 3w

SleepyDragon Yeah, but it was in college and near campus, so it wasn't that odd when I did it. It would be weird if I did it now. The bars near me are loud and full of young marines. 3w
