I haven't had a lot of reading time lately, so I'm going with options #1. 📖

Aims42 Oh man, these are all perfect!! If I had to choose just one, I‘d pick the second option. But I hope that money could also apply to bookshelves 😆📚📚📚📚📚📚📚 5d
BeeMagical Ooooooooo… and I can‘t choose them all!?…. I think I want the vacation!!😂 actually… as a thriller lover, maybe I don‘t?😂 5d
RenePenn What a nice thought!! The reading time would be nice! 5d

Bookjunkie57 I think I‘d choose the reading time too. 5d
TheKidUpstairs I think I'd go with number one as well. I mean, I'd never turn any of them down, but number one sounds heavenly. 5d
Kdgordon88 The key word for #1 “uninterrupted”. Yes, please! 5d
MaureenMc Definitely the author one. Something to look forward to every year! 😁 5d
Clare-Dragonfly Oh, definitely #1! Imagine how many books I could read! 🤩 5d

Bailed. This did not hold my attention at all, plus it didn't have great reviews on Litsy. Time to move on.

I think I preferred Tom Sawyer, but that might have just been the narrator. Elijah Wood did a good job mind you, I just really love Nick Offerman.

TheLudicReader Bummer. I have this one on my tbr shelf, too. 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @TheLudicReader It takes a lot to satisfy me when it comes to horror. I have to dip into more extreme horror, usually. So take my reviews with a grain of salt, it is very subjective. 2mo

Saw this on IG and it got me curious. Do you guys all have little movies or nothing?

For me definitely little movies. If I'm really caught up in a good story I forget I'm reading. I don't even see the words anymore, it's just the movie in my head. How about you?

KateReadsYA Same. 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @KateReadsYA No, I haven't gotten it yet. I'm on a book buying ban, trying to only read books I already own this year. 2mo

BookDadGirlDad I will “see“ the scenes play out on books I'm really invested in. 2mo
RaeLovesToRead Not being able to see pictures in your head is called aphantasia. Everyone is on a spectrum from photographic memory to no pictures at all. I believe there is also the auditory equivalent. I only see very dim, fleeting images which is frustrating when reading visual stories (such as LOTR, for example). Most people favour one of 3 representational systems: Visual, Auditory or Kinaesthetic. I'm very much the third of these! 2mo
RaeLovesToRead It's fascinating! 2mo
Zoes_Human No movie for me. I'm an extremely non-visual human. If I'm really into a book the words become full concepts but not anything visual. I think that is part of why it's easier for me to enjoy film conversions. I don't have any preset imagery, so as long as the themes and concepts are right, the film will work for me. 2mo
CoverToCoverGirl Movies for me too. 🎥. What a fascinating post! 2mo
Mollyanna Movies for me too! I thought everyone saw movies as they read. Thanks for sharing that others have different experiences. 2mo
NikkiM5 Movie in the head team lol. I think that‘s why I love reading books before they go to screen; I compare my movie to theirs. 🤪 2mo
persephone1408 Sometimes I do. It helps if they have a movie or show of it and then I picture the person playing them. I've been listening to American psycho read by Pablo Schreiber, so I've been picturing him lol 2mo
julesG @RaeLovesToRead All three? I mean, a combination of the three. Somehow depending on which medium I use (e/book vs audiobook) and what is going on around me. 2mo
sprainedbrain Absolutely have a movie going in my head! 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @persephone1408 I avoid film/tv adaptations if I haven't already read the book, so they don't influence my own images. Celeb narrators do affect my audio book experience as well, I hadn't thought of that. 2mo
RaeLovesToRead @julesG Yeah, most people have all three but have a preference! I'm very jealous of people who can picture things vividly in their minds! 2mo
CaitZ Yup, I see a movie 2mo
Simona Movie! 2mo
MeganAnn Fascinating post! I wouldn‘t say I see a movie going in my head, but I can picture the characters and setting while reading. So sort of pictures of the scene like a storybook or series of photos/paintings rather than a movie. 2mo
MeganAnn @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @persephone1408 what I picture usually changes after seeing a movie/tv adaptation. Even if I read it before seeing the adaptation and pictured things differently, afterwards my brain automatically defaults to the movie visual. 2mo
mrp27 Definitely a movie in my head kind of reader. 2mo
Clare-Dragonfly I don‘t really have a distinct movie but I see shadowy movements. I would need a really detailed description and to actually work at it to get a clear picture. 2mo
Reggie Totally picture movies in my head. 2mo
ShelleyBooksie Movie 2mo
CuriousG I have to actively work to create mental pictures, and even then it is very difficult to do. The only time I'm really successful in having a clear visual is if the description I am reading is close enough to something I have seen in real life, then I see that. Otherwise, it is vague shapes/colors. I like it though. I get completely immersed in the feelings the words evoke. Long after I've forgot a plot I know exactly how I felt when reading it. 2mo
BiblioLitten @RaeLovesToRead How interesting! I actually thought that a movie played for everyone. 2mo
KateReadsYA @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I have tried this two years in a row. Hell it's only March and I've already bought like 6 hahaha! I have no self control. I just bought the tagged one, you might like that one too! 😉 You can totally make it through the year I have faith in you 🙏 2mo
BiblioLitten I just asked my husband about visual images and he said he didn‘t see a movie at all. I never knew this because I always assumed that everyone saw images. You think you know a person after all these years😂 2mo
PaperbackPirate If a book is good I see a movie. The bad ones, not so much. 🎥 2mo

I'm off swaps for a bit, but I couldn't resist this #ValentineCardSwap #VCS Hosted by @LibrarianRyan

paperwitchs Noob question - what are swaps and swap tags? 4mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @paperwitchs Ok. So. Littens (users) host various book swaps throughout the year. There's a theme, and a book/gift minimum. The host will post a link, and a hashtag that goes with the swap. You click the link & fill out a questionnaire, then the host matches you. You shop then mail off your gifts so that they arrive by the set opening date. ⬇️ 4mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @paperwitchs here are a couple of previous swaps you can click the hashtag and see what they're about. #littlechristmasswap #basicwitchswap 4mo

This book was very good. I will say though, I did find it very distracting that the narrator was a man. I will have to look into why the author made that choice. But it is one of the reasons why I think this would be an excellent book club pick. It's also based on true events (that I will also be looking more into).

jdiehr Yes, I spent quite a bit of time Googling after finishing this book 4mo

j9brown I'm almost done with this book myself and have been wondering the same thing. I kind of get the choice (wanting to tell their story from a sort of outsider-looking-in perspective) but I find him a little obnoxious. Anyhow, I'll be googling this one soon, too 😄 4mo
