So I‘ve been missing for a while due to school and work but I‘ve still been reading..... this accomplishment happened last week..... I know it sounds cheesy but I honestly couldn‘t have done it without you guys..... or I might have been able to but because of you I know for sure I‘ve read some really awesome books I would never have read otherwise😘

LiteraryinLititz That‘s a great accomplishment! 2y
Angitron Congrats!!! 😊 2y
alovely26 Thank you soooo much @LiteraryinLititz and @Angitron. I have never tracked my reading and we still have 2 months left to the year I‘m really excited to see how far this can go! 2y

Hello Littens!!!! Any advice for a frugal friend wanting to find books for their library????

diovival I buy most of my books used. Check out Goodwill and local libraries for great books at super low prices. There might even be a fill-a-bag deal on the last days of a big library sale. 2y
alovely26 Thanks @diovival I will look into that 2y
Liatrek If you are in the DFW area keep a look out for the Half Price Books clearance sale at the Dallas Market Hall. It's normally around this time of year and everything is 2 dollars or less. They have two clearance sales a year one in Arlington Convention and the other in Dallas. It's how I got my little library up to 450 :-) 2y

I DID NOT have a great day today and my night at work started off quite turbulent. After I finished Beautiful You ( I wasn't ready for the content however I couldn't put it down once I started) I started this on audio. I've been laughing ever since. Nothing like sarcasm and dark humor to turn your day ALL THE WAY AROUND!

Life of Pi | Yann Martel

Some of us give up on life with only a resigned sigh. Others fight a little then lose hope. Still others, and I am one of those, never give up. We fight and fight and fight. We fight no matter the cost of battle, the losses we take, the improbability of success. We fight till the very end. It's not a question of courage, it's something constitutional, an inability to let go. It maybe nothing more than life hungry stupidity.

Sooooooo my wonderful husband has decided since we don't really use this space in the house, he wants to build a library for me! I guess he's tired of tripping over books in our bedroom. Also I was able to get some great new additions today! Excuse the mess! It truly is a non functional room at this point
