My latest #libraryhaul and a copy of Book Page!

Mskt6891 What is Book Page? The cover looks really interesting but I can't see the details 3w
Graciouswarriorprincess @Mskt6891 It is a monthly newspaper/magazine. My library has it for free. https://www.bookpage.com/ 3w
Mskt6891 Oh nice ☺️ I never see cool stuff like this here in the UK! 3w
BookBabe Oooh! I want that copy of Book Page! I haven‘t been to a library since the pandemic started. Guess it‘s time to venture out to one! We actually have a shiny new gorgeous local library and it‘s been soooooo tempting to go check it out! 3w
Graciouswarriorprincess @BookBabe Send me an email at akallas@loyola.edu with your address and I can mail one to you. 😀 2w

The Ballerinas: A Novel | Rachel Kapelke-Dale
post image

Book two of 2022.

I wouldn‘t have read this except I heard about it from @booksparks as it was their December #bookclub pick.

This was a fascinating read about three women friends who “grew up” together in a ballet school. The story alternated between their teen and thirty years. The ruthless, politics and characters were beautifully written.

My first book of 2022. I finished all the days of Shakespeare on the 31st but wanted to read the epilogue.

This book was a great introduction to Shakespeare‘s works and his life. Everyday reading was approximately 5-10 minutes but so fascinating that I spent more time just learning about him.

Thanks to @DebinHawaii and @MaleficentBookDragon ! These are the books for the #jolabokaflod swap! Chocolates arriving today!

I can‘t wait to dive into this series as I love Ellie Alexander! You are so sweet, @DebinHawaii !!

Happy reading and Merry Jolabokaflod/Christmas!

DebinHawaii I was happy to see them on your list as I love this series. No new updates on the chocolate I am afraid but I remain slightly hopeful it will arrive today. Happy Jolabokaflod & Merry Christmas to you too! 📚🎄 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DebinHawaii Thank you!!! You are so sweet! I will let you know when it arrives! 1mo
DebinHawaii I‘m just glad you have some chocolate already there just in case. 🙏🏼 1mo
DebinHawaii @Graciouswarriorprincess So the chocolate still shows “Delayed Delivery” no movement & since it‘s so late now, I am going to see if it delivers tomorrow. If not I am going to put in a refund request & get some other chocolate out to you. So sorry for the delay. I specifically picked chocolate that said it would deliver by 12/23. ☹️ 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DebinHawaii No worries. Please just get a refund and don‘t order anything! We have so much food and goodies here. I am fine with the books and it‘s the thought that counts! Hugs!!!😊 1mo

DebinHawaii @Graciouswarriorprincess Just got an alert that your chocolate is delayed. It says delivery expected Dec 24 - Dec 25. ☹️ I am still 🙏🏼 it gets there tomorrow. It shows it made it from Graham to Durham early yesterday morning & was received by delivery carrier about an hour later yesterday then today shows just “delivery delay.” I‘ll keep you posted. @MaleficentBookDragon 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DebinHawaii Thanks! It arrives when it arrives. I will open the books tomorrow and we have a 2 pound box of chocolates so I can enjoy those until yours arrives. No worries!! Merry Christmas!!! @MaleficentBookDragon 1mo

DebinHawaii @Graciouswarriorprincess Hi Anna Louise, I am you #jolabokaswap sender. It was a bit of a surprise to me when I got a swap package because for some strange reason, I didn‘t get my match email or Google Doc response & had it in my head that I goofed & didn‘t submit before the deadline. When I got the package I freaked & then had some challenges with getting my email responses that @MaleficentBookDragon sent in my mailbox. Long story (not that) ⬇️ (edited) 1mo
DebinHawaii … short. Thanks to the help of a few Litsy friends I was able to get your info from Michelle. I wanted you to know that you have 2-3 packages coming from me from all from Amazon. The books may be together or not but are scheduled to arrive Tuesday. The chocolate is coming Wed or Thurs. All are supposed to be in gift bags. I apologize for the down-to-wire & that it‘s an Amazon send. I just didn‘t want you to think you were not getting a package.🎄 (edited) 1mo

DebinHawaii @Graciouswarriorprincess Thank you for living up to your name & being gracious about it. I feel awful. Big thanks to @sprainedbrain @Chrissyreadit @Avanders for getting me connected to Michelle. (edited) 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DebinHawaii Aww, thanks. Again, life happens and all is good! I just really appreciate all that you did!! Thanks to @sprainedbrain @Chrissyreadit and @Avanders !! This is why Litsy is such a great community!!! Love you all!!! (edited) 1mo
sprainedbrain @DebinHawaii @Graciouswarriorprincess happy to help everyone have a happy Jolabokaflod! ❤️ 1mo
MaleficentBookDragon Yes, sorry about the delay. For some reason my email does not like Deb. 😒 1mo
DebinHawaii @MaleficentBookDragon @Graciouswarriorprincess And that‘s sad because I am so likable normally! 😆😜 Amazon says they delivered one package today & I just saw you got it! 🙏🏼 🎉 (edited) 1mo
