Today's library haul! I'm not usually a good cook/baker, but the #wintergames inspired me to find and try some holiday recipes! 🥧⛄
Also picked up some graphic novels and shorter reads for #24B4Monday this weekend. 📚

FantasyChick Great stack! I always do a ton of baking over the holidays. Can't wait to see what you decide to try 😊 14h

1. How about a #shelfie instead?
2. "Anyway, I was trying to visualize it, him crawling under the couch, trying to grab the rabbit but missing everytime, and I got the helpless giggles." (From The Ditch by Herman Koch)
3. 38F and overcast.

I've decided I'm going to attempt to participate in this weekend's #24B4Monday readathon, even though every time I try my weekend ends up getting interrupted. 😒
Fingers crossed I'll be left alone this weekend!
@TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 @jb72

ljuliel Good luck. 👍🏼 I‘m not sure yet if I‘ll give it another go or not. I‘m not very good at readathons . I hope all that participate have a good time , though. 🙂 22h
LaurensLibrary @ljuliel Thanks! I'm not great at readathons, either, so we'll see how it goes! 22h
SamAnne Oh I might! Lots of work around the house to be done and I can listen to my audiobooks! When, what hour does it actually begin? 22h

This one was okay. I was kind of annoyed by a lot of it, but it was an interesting story. Totally unsatisfying ending.

Picked up a few holiday books for the #WinterGames this morning! I was so happy to find The Best Christmas Pageant Ever at HPB! It used to be one of my favorites and my mom gave it away when she purged all our "baby stuff" a few years ago! Anyway, I'm officially ready for the games to begin! ???⛄

An in-depth look into the rise and fall of the biggest pain clinic in Florida. I wish I could say I'm shocked at what they got away with, but I'm not. An interesting story, but nothing new I haven't heard before.

I'm not sure if maybe I just wasn't in the right mood or what, but I had a hard time getting into this book. The end still made me cry, though.

Determined to finish this one today, even though I'm really not in the mood for it. Only 40-ish pages to go. 😒

1. Beanie babies! I believe my parents still have them all in totes in their attic.
2. In gym class.
3. Rugrats!
4. I don't really remember. Maybe Lunchables?
5. No, I was a picky eater so I usually packed.
6. Rode the bus!

#yourstory @nu-bibliophile

Pruzy I feel you with the Beanie Babies stored in a parent‘s home. They never turned out to be the money making collector‘s item we hoped they‘d be as a kid. 5d
TheLibrarian @LaurensLibrary I have a bunch of Beanie Babies too and as @Pruzy said, they didn‘t quite turn out to be the collector‘s item I‘d hope for. 5d
LaurensLibrary @Pruzy @TheLibrarian I know! I bought all those little tag protectors and everything thinking they'd be worth something someday. Now Idk what I'm gonna do bc I know my mom is going to dump them on my doorstep one day and I have no where to put them all! 😫 5d

nu-bibliophile Beanie Babies were a big obsession back then. Sometimes I still see them around though. 5d
marleed The lines I stood in for beanie babies my kids tired in before I stepped out of the lines may account for the embarrassment of my parenting. I try to get rid of them and I swear, there‘s yet another box - they multiply in the dark tucked away corners! However, it still is a lesson on collections for all of us. We skipped the Pokémon card craze that fallowed! 5d
LaurensLibrary @nu-bibliophile Yeah I think they've got big eyes now or something. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 5d
LaurensLibrary @marleed Ugh, I know! I have so many. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them all! 5d
marleed It‘s become entertainment to my kids. They‘ve watched and sometimes participated as I‘ve donated boxes of beanie and teeny beanie babies. Yet, we always discover more! Except a teeny beanie monkey- we keep that because it is the ‘baby‘ of my 19 yr old cat. We can tell when she has it - she meows differently. 5d
LaurensLibrary @marleed Thats so cute! I love when animals adopt little stuffed "babies!" 5d

1. An obvious choice 🤷🏼‍♀️
2. Am I lame if I say the Disney+ launch? 🤓
3. Hub is working late, hanging out until he gets home then having some gyros and watching Live PD. 🚔
4. Eight still living.
5. Will do! 👍🏻
