📔75% voracious reader, 15% bibliophile

📗📘 Lots of books I must keep for a variety of reasons, but many more that I donate or share with friends and family.

#two4tuesday @TheSpineView

LiseWorks I am a 100 % voracious reader. I read from my tablet. If I read a real book it's because it was given to me and I usually pass it on. I really do not keep books. 11h
TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 👍📚💙📚💙 10h
jlhammar Thanks for the tag! If a book doesn't fall under the really like or love category for me, I pass those on to others. Usually via my Little Free Library. That way my home library consists only of my favorites and books that I haven't read yet. 9h
SusanLee Thanks for the tag! I think I‘m 50/50 😅 37m

1️⃣ If I take good care of my body, my mental/emotional health improves.

2️⃣ I went to the shoe 👠 store on my day off, and bought a pair of shoes that I rationalized i couldn‘t live without🤫

#thoughtfulthursday @MoonWitch94

KristiAhlers I always make time for myself and I treat myself to sound baths, or guided meditations. I suffer from an anxiety disorder and this helps me so much. And today after I cleaned the house and changed the sheets on the bed I read a book I bought the other day and had a cup of tea and didn‘t do much else for a few hours. 5d
Texreader Thanks for the tag! And yes shopping is wonderfully therapeutic! 5d
LiseWorks @ eggs I have never been one to actually ever worry much. I have never been depressed I am a cup is half full kind of person. I also have Jesus in my life. I always start the day with reading the Bible. 5d

Happy Wednesday❣️Here are your queries👆🏻

1~I enjoy walking and paper arts like bookmarks, cards, and scrapbooks

2~I read them occasionally. I don‘t physically write reviews, but I do rate and analyze each one in my head. There is something to be gained from every book, odd as it may be.

3~A leather chair and ottoman in my room.

Care to share? I love reading your responses -

Happy Wednesday and Happy May! Thank you for all the “wondrous” responses to all my questions 💕

💫 yes! Especially after watching or reading twisty compelling mysteries

💫💫 Jerry Seinfeld‘s Halloween - I believe I‘ve read it 3000 times minimum for my grandkids over the years 🤣 and I still reread Dandelion Wine to myself

✨✨✨ Intermittent fasting!! Until my pants feel looser 🙄

KristiAhlers Thanks for the tag! For me yes book characters always show up in my dreams. And the book I‘ve re-read the most is Les Mis. I‘ve even read it in French. There is just something about that story…and my goal for May is to finally sort through the rest of my dads things he brought with him after he moved in with us after the death of my mom. May marks a year here in Illinois with me and my husband. He will be 88 this year and doing so much better. 2w

These 2 memoirs were tough to read…but similar in terms of the dysfunctional parents…sad for the kids.
