Currently rereading an old favorite at home, and listening to a totally new one during my suddenly longer commute. Loving this one so far, and super thankful to my favorite aunt who recommended this to me on Thanksgiving. ❤❤❤

I have been away for too long, and I have a backlog of bookish pics to post. This is literally one of my favorite pics ever! My baby boy is so into the crayon books right now that he had to stop and sit on the stairs after his nap the other day just to look at this book. 📚🤓💙😊

Have you ever had a nostalgic flashback to a favorite book from your teen years??? Over the past year I have been randomly purchasing books I read in my early teens, but one is so obscure (but was a definite favorite) that I can't find it anywhere. I am so frustrated! 🤯

Traci1 Yes there are a couple I'd love to get my hands on. But I only remember the name of one and it's long since been out of print. 😔 I tell myself it probably wasn't as good as I remember it being to try to make myself feel better. But it doesn't really work. 7mo
jlabombard10315 @Traci1 yes! I recently read one from around the same time frame, and realized that it really belonged in my youth. I realized that the main character was unlikeable, and the story line wasn't great. I will probably keep the book for nostalgia, but I can't really see myself reading it again. But I have other ones that have stood the test of time (*ahem* Are You There God, It's Me, Margaret *ahem*). Maybe someday I'll give up the search for this ome 7mo
Traci1 @jlabombard10315 I noticed that Are You There God, it's Me Margaret was on sale today on kindle for $1.99. Just fyi. 😊 7mo
jlabombard10315 Ooh! I don't own a Kindle version yet. My copy was a used one, I donated it back when I thought I outgrew it, and had to buy another one. But I do 99% of my reading o my 7mo
jlabombard10315 *on my Kindle now because I find it works best for me. I may have to snag it for $1.99! Thanks! 😊 7mo

Here's to introducing my 10 year old stepdaughter into the Judy Blume world! We have done (my personal favorites) of Are You There God, It's Me Margaret and Just as Long as We're Together. Now we have completed Here's to You, Rachel Robinson, and started It's Not the End of the World. We are on a roll!

This book definitely provided more insight into Rachel as a character, and definitely has its place in the Blume universe. I recommend it!

My sister and I have been doing a lot of babysitting for each other over the past few months... I've noticed that since my nieces have been here more weekends, that they have started to ask me to read to them. Not sure if that is because they see my one year old constantly bringing books to me that he loves or because they are excited that someone will read to them, but I'm happy to help them broaden their horizons! #raisingbooknerds

Is it just me, or is anyone else excited about the book haul that their littles took home for Christma? When asked what they needed for Christmas my answer was always, "we could use some new books."
My stepdaughter snagged the Princess Diaries box set, and Judy Moody #4. And Baby Boy lucked out with Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories, Bruce's Big Move, Santa Bruce, and several titles from Usborne Books. ❤❤❤

Thank you!
