"Fish! Fish with teeth! Nothing is safe here. You can't even trust the fish not to eat you. What's else? Pigeons with fangs? Monkeys with guns?"

These are true concerns. Be aware.

emtobiasz I‘ve had several kids recommended this to me, so I should really read it soon. 😂 9mo

It‘s taking me forever to get through books recently, even the ones I love. I also find I post more when I am stressed. I need a hovel or a nice tent or cottage or something to crawl into for about 4 days with no one to disturb me, except maybe the pups. Then I might be human again...maybe.

Squeee! @Schuhbox thank you so, so much for my #easterbasketbookswap! I have had a few very, very stressful weeks (okay, months) and opening this wonderful box of goodness was a special moment this week. All great choices, but I‘m most excited about Windup Girl! I cannot wait to dig in. Thank you, thank you! #bookswap

Schuhbox Yeah! I‘m glad you hadn‘t read them yet! You‘re very welcome! I‘ll open yours later today! So excited! 2y

Loving this new transitional #chapterbook with a diverse cast! Perfect for Ivy+Bean fans. A little magic/whimsy and an absolute wordsmith of a main character. #diversity #comingsoon

kgriffith I don‘t suppose you would be willing to take a moment and tell me how the Whichwoodians‘ names besides Laylee are spelled?? I‘m listening to the audio and there are some great lines of dialog, but I don‘t want to misspell the names and can‘t find them online without potential spoilers 😬 I‘d be so grateful 😊 2y
ThatOneLibrarian @kgriffith Gah! I‘m away from both home and work and don‘t have a copy with me right now. I‘m so sorry. I Don‘t naturally have a head for remembering spellings, either. Alas, I am useless. 2y
kgriffith @ThatOneLibrarian Not at all! @GondorGirl, despite also listening rather than eyeballing, did a deep dive and found what I needed because ROCK STAR. I appreciate your librarian heart, oh apologetic one 😏 😊 2y
ThatOneLibrarian @kgriffith Woot! I‘m glad you have found victory. 2y

Ugh, after the 11 hr workday yesterday I knew the chances of actually hitting the 24 hr goal were ridiculously slim, but I set my alarm super early to try. But when I had to choose between a rested, pleasant day and the chance of 24 hrs this morning, I chose the former. While I‘m no longer in the running for the full 24, I‘m still dedicating my entire Sunday to reading! #24in48 #brightside #irequiresleep

Tamra I ALWAYS choose sleep. 😴 2y
abbylibrarian Good choice! Me too! 2y
BibliophileMomma My chance of doing it went out the window Friday when everyone in our house got sick. Sucks but hopefully the next time. 2y

The face of a very tired #librarian after the annual foundation fundraiser. Only about 8.5 hours of audiobook listening accomplished, in the first 24 hour block, but it‘s way more than I would have normally done on a weekend like this! #24in48
