1. I‘ve kissed a killer whale; I put sriracha sauce on everything; I‘m two degrees of separation from a Munchkin
2. The Secret History
3. Yes, at book signings. Sue Grafton, Marie Lu, Barbara Kingsolver, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Mitali Perkins, Laura Levine, Lara Parker, Don Lynch & Ken Marschall, Nigel Nicholson
4. Too cold—you can always add more layers 😊

Alora Thank you for reposting! The kitty is sooo cute! 😍😍 5d
Alora Is the lie siracha sauce?! 😱🥵 5d
Megabooks You‘ve kissed a killer whale is the lie 🤔 5d

DaveGreen7777 Hmmm... I‘ll guess the sriracha sauce is the lie? 🧐 5d
rubyslippersreads @Alora @DaveGreen7777 Yep. It‘s my SIL who douses everything with sriracha. 😄 5d
rubyslippersreads @Megabooks Well, technically, the killer whale kissed me, but the sriracha sauce is the lie. 😄 5d
Alora Ouhhh I like spicy and hot things but I don‘t know if I could do that 😂 5d
UwannaPublishme I‘m going with the hot sauce because you may have kissed a whale at Sea World, and I have no doubts by your reading list that you‘re related to a Munchkin! 😆 4d
rubyslippersreads @UwannaPublishme You guessed right! Technically, the killer whale kissed me (at Marineland), and my mom knew one of the Munchkins. Unfortunately, this was long before my mom knew me, so she didn‘t get an autograph. 😄 3d
UwannaPublishme 😂 I bet your mom asked for an autograph. As they say: The apple doesn‘t fall far from the tree. Or vice versa! 🤣 3d
LeahBergen I guessed right! 2d

The Wizard of Oz | Salman Rushdie

The Wicked Witch of the West is much scarier in the movie, due to Margaret Hamilton‘s iconic performance. And I suppose a witch might enjoy living in a #ghosttown #characteryoulovetohate #gratefulreads #illgetyoumypretty #movember

GidgetsTreasures75 @rubyslippersreads I just read that the director of The Wizard of Oz edited out a lot of Ms. Hamilton‘s scenes because he felt they were too scary for children to see on the big screen! Can you imagine what he must of left out? That witch scared me for years!!! 1w

Questionnaire | Evan Kindley
post image

1. I ❤️ having a group of kindred spirits to discuss books with. We may not all like the same books, but the important thing is that we all ❤️ books.
2. I‘m interested in most things, although I haven‘t done any swaps in awhile. And I love how Litsy has expanded my TBR. Also #catsoflitsy 😸
3. I wish there were a way to organize our followerers/followees. I have so many in my feed, I feel like I‘m sometimes missing things. #litsyquestionnaire ⬇️

rubyslippersreads 4. I used to post every day, but I‘ve gotten lazy. This discussion is making me resolve to be more active, because there‘s really no place like Litsy. 🌈👠 #keeplitsyactive #keeplitsyalive
5. I love readalongs/buddy reads, especially when they make me read a book I‘ve had on my TBR for ages. I like some of the questionnaires, but haven‘t done any readathons.
6. Make the app stop crashing after a new post in iOS. ⬇️
(edited) 2w
rubyslippersreads P. S. For those who think Litsy has slowed down, my cats blame #JohnnyBergen for distracting @LeahBergen from reading and posting. 😹 2w

Look at the great #litsymail that just arrived from @UwannaPublishme 😍 I‘m dying to watch the Jane Seymour version of #EoE and compare it with the James Dean movie. The vintage book is gorgeous, as is the bookmark peeking out of Travels With Charley. And for those of you unfamiliar with Dark Shadows (see card in upper right), Angelique is the evil witch—though maybe not quite as evil as Cathy. 😂 Thanks so much, Donna!

@LeahBergen I promised I‘d show you my hardcover copy, which came with an interesting bit of ephemera. It belonged to a woman named Carolyn Fisher, who Google told me was a professor at UCLA. She apparently received it as a gift (or a recommendation) from another professor (whose name I can‘t figure out), because this letter was pasted in the back. No date, but obviously typed on an old typewriter. I ❤️ love finding these treasures in books. 😊

LeahBergen Has one what? 😮😮 😆😆😆 5mo
LeahBergen But I love both covers! 5mo

1 I‘m just happy that the latest Avengers film finally explained that Peggy is a nickname for Margaret. 😊

2 My Sister From the Black Lagoon

3 Hype can sometimes keep me from reading a book, because I‘m already sick of hearing about it.

4 Very important; I ❤️ pretty covers. That said, if it‘s a very HTF book that I‘m dying to read, I‘ll be happy with any cover.
