My #FriendsWithBooks bookclub reads our Christmas book in November so that in December we can have our Christmas dinner party and book exchange. It does feel weird reading a Christmas book before Thanksgiving! Lol 😝 instead of stringing popcorn as a garland I‘m eating it for breakfast!

Some well loved books and covers

Leftcoastzen Wow,Bed-knob has a B.Dalton sticker on it .😀well loved books! 2mo
LibrarianRyan You know what I love, that PT does not have a cover change. It has had the same cover forever. Most classics get new covers to entice new readers, but not PT. It has a classic cover that just works. 2mo

Day 4

This is a great cover! From one our own Littens. She is finally touring fairly close to me (Tulsa, OK - I‘m near Wichita, KS) , but I‘ve got to stay home close to my daughter whose 35 weeks pregnant with twins. Snap!


Chrissyreadit So exciting! (The twins)!!!!! 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit yes!!! So thankful she made it to 35 weeks!! now I hope at least 36 but would prefer 37! 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit she‘s been nesting an awful lot this last week though! 2mo
Chrissyreadit 35 is not bad! What do they weigh? Are they Boy/girl/surprise? 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit yes! I‘m so thankful they‘ve stayed inside so long!! 2 girls! Natalya & Emory ! They‘re about 4.5 - 5 lbs now! So pretty good sized. She‘s a walking time bomb! 2mo

tpixie @DrexEdit great question! I saw the book in real life but did not buy it and this one is a photograph from the web. I almost think I remember that it did show the back .... (edited) 2mo

This is a book I chose for its cover AND bought at an airport bookstore this last Spring Break. 2 things I don‘t normally do! The premise of the book was intriguing as well as having a pretty cover.

Those that can‘t go & even those going: Check out CSPSN2 Book TV interviews of the National Book Festival this weekend. There‘s tons of stuff to record!
If you don‘t have CSPAN2 channel, you can watch shows online at CSPAN2 Book TV
Last year this helped me figure out who I should see in person or who should I watch when I went back home! #NationalBookFestival
#NatBookFest #NatBookFest2019

Scochrane26 I‘m sad because Barbara kingsolver will be there & I won‘t. 3mo
Graciouswarriorprincess Thanks for sharing. Moving weekend so I will have to watch later. 3mo
tpixie @Scochrane26 I know!! I wanted to go again this year - last year was my first time and I loved it. My daughter is pregnant with twins and due two months ( 32 was) and I was just worried that she would deliver right when I left town. But now it‘s like, “ I wonder how much a plane trip to Washington DC costs and is there anyway I could find a hotel last minute?! “. Lol. So I‘ll just have to watch C-SPAN2 and Book TV!! 3mo

tpixie @Graciouswarriorprincess good luck moving!! You‘re halfway there! 3mo
Scochrane26 @tpixie I‘m fortunate to have a couple of friends I could stay w/ if I could go. I didn‘t know about it until a few days ago when BK put it on her fb. I just want to meet her, but I‘m sure I would love the whole festival. 3mo
Chrissyreadit I will check it out! I‘m giving my niece my ticket to Dear Evan Hanson and going to the book fair! 3mo
tpixie @Scochrane26 yes! Save up for next year!! Labor Day Weekend! 3mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit awesomeness!!! Have a blast and I hope to see you next year! 3mo
DivineDiana Why am I just seeing this? 🙁 2mo
tpixie @DivineDiana I know! It‘s so hard to keep up with Everything!!! The talks likely are still streaming online at CSPAN2 Book TV. Or even the Library of Congress website. Just remember it‘s every Labor Day weekend and although it‘s a blast to go, you can tape it from home! 2mo
DivineDiana Thank you! Just signed up for an account, so I can save the talks. RBG is still there! 2mo

Reading this novel by a local author. In the vein of Educated and Where the Crawdads Sing. i‘m trying to keep an open mind. I think she does it herself as a victim more than a survivor

Megabooks I didn‘t care for this one and bailed. 3mo
tpixie @Megabooks If it weren‘t audio and I‘m in between book club books I probably would be bail also. I really want to read Educated. I‘m much more impressed with her story of empowerment 3mo

Tattooist of Auschwitz | Heather Morris

“ To Save One, Is To Save Mankind “.

This was a powerful book!

thewallflower0707 I heard a lot about this book! But I think it is important to mention that the @/AuschwitzMuseum twitter account has pointed out the several factual errors in this book. 3mo
tpixie @thewallflower0707 thanks!! For info!! I bet it was due to poetic license since it‘s a novel or maybe even Lole‘s memory. But I‘m sure the Auschwitz Museum wants to keep things as factual as possible. 3mo
tpixie @thewallflower0707 I really did enjoy the story this and the Alice network have been my favorite books lately. I want to read the huntress next because there‘s a cameo of one of my favorite characters from the Alice network in there 3mo

tpixie @Scochrane26 awesome!! This museum is pretty inside and out!! Apparently the museums on the east and west coast are mad that there is such a museum in the Midwest. They believe all the artwork should go to the east or west coast and not in the Midwest! 😃😜😆😂 4mo

Hestapleton @tpixie no blue light (which makes it easy on your eyes) and it‘s so cozy to just read in the dark until you fall asleep. :) 5mo
tpixie @Hestapleton yes! I‘m really interested in protecting my eyes. I‘ve been using my iPhone to read at night and I know it can‘t be good for me. And the paperwhite is light weight too so it when it falls on my face it won‘t hurt too!! And the #paperwhite is lightweight too so it when it falls on my face it won‘t hurt too much! 🤓 5mo
BookBabe I saw you were asking around about e-readers, so I came here to see if you got one! Congrats! I love them. I have an iPhone and iPad, and I do read on them sometimes when it‘s more convenient for whatever reason (like it‘s the device in my hand at the moment), but e-ink e-readers are a far superior reading experience. My new Kindle Oasis is arriving today, I‘m so excited! I‘ve been using Kindles for the past few years. 😊 3mo
tpixie @BookBabe I have enjoyed my kindle paperwhite- esp for my eyes. I do miss the color that‘s on my iPhone. And the kindle is slower when I‘m highlighting or looking up things, which surprise d me. (edited) 3mo

This is a fun book where the reader can communicate with the character in the book. I like the sentence where they use LISTEN instead of HEAR. There‘s a big difference between hearing something and really listening.

tpixie @rjsthumbelina yes! I think it‘s my favorite from 2019!! This and all of Fredrick Backman books I‘ve read so far and The Nightingale are my most recent favorites! 6mo
tpixie @Larkken oh fun! Ours are at the end of their peak. And it‘s going to rain all week so I‘m not certain how well they will holdinghold out. I was hoping they‘d be pretty for Bookclub on Thursday, but the rains will wilt them. Enjoy yours as they bloom! 6mo
tpixie @DrexEdit thanks!! 6mo

I wonder if they used the same cover artist?? The font is similar also.
Different publishers though - Putnum & Ecco, Respectively.

Cathythoughts It is ! Beautiful covers 6mo
tpixie @Cathythoughts they are pretty!! 6mo
wanderinglynn They are both very similar & pretty. #thingsbooknerdswonder 6mo

JaclynW I bet they are! Very pretty! 6mo
tpixie @JaclynW lol that's why I ended up buying The Immortalist! The cover! I think there's another cover out there that is similar, but I can't recall it. 6mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Both gorgeous!! I‘ve read The Immortalists...loved it! Can‘t wait to read Stella! There‘s another book that‘s so gorgeous too..I have to find it...it‘s by an English author, it remains a me a bit of these 2 but I think it has grapes...ok, I just found it...Everything Under...gorgeous book, but def different then these...sorry, my mix up. (edited) 6mo
tpixie @JanuarieTimewalker13 Stella does look good!! This is a pretty cover! (edited) 6mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I know!! Can you imagine displaying all three?....complete works of art!! EU was shortlisted for the Man Booker (2018). Lots of times I find award finalists tedious, but I‘ll give it a go (one day), hopefully. 6mo
tpixie @JanuarieTimewalker13 I think that‘s one reason why REAL books I have had an increase in sales – they really improved the covers- now they really are artwork!! i‘ll need to try to read this book too because well, the cover is pretty!! 6mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @tpixie you know, that‘s an excellent point! I never thought about that!! Covers nowadays are stunning! 6mo
tpixie @JanuarieTimewalker13 🥳😊📚😊🥳 6mo

Enjoying my 1st book in Round 3 of my #CoverToCoverBook. I can‘t reveal the book so here‘s an iris instead!

Eggs Beautiful photo❣️ 6mo
AlaMich I don‘t think I‘ve ever seen an iris that color. It‘s lovely! 6mo
tpixie @Eggs @AlaMich thanks! It‘s one of my favorite colors!!! I have a beautiful burgundy one, but we just had hail and so the pedals were damaged. Luckily the plants weren‘t though so hopefully later in the week I‘ll be able to get photos of that one! And my peach ones coming up and I love my orange one that will be coming soon! But I am sure to tell all my purple and yellow ones that I love them too and that they are pretty! Lol 😂 (edited) 6mo

Sills How beautiful:) - can't wait to see them in person! @tpixie
tpixie @Sills lol. Of course by book club they will probably be done blooming!! We need a mid- May visit!! 7mo
minkyb My goodness that iris is stunning! 7mo
CouronneDhiver Pretty! Do you know what kind of iris that is? I‘ll be planting Dutch iris bulbs in a few weeks‘ time. Just curious 6mo
tpixie @minkyb thanks!!! 6mo
tpixie @CouronneDhiver no, I don‘t. I‘ll let you know if my husband does. We usually just make up names for them. He has over 125 varieties! 6mo
CouronneDhiver More pictures? And maybe some advice if he has any. 😃 6mo
tpixie @CouronneDhiver he doesn‘t know the name. But his advice: Don‘t plant them deep. Make sure the top of the rhizome is above ground. Make sure there is good drainage, so they don‘t stand in water. 6mo
JoanehSmith That 100 year old man sure has had an interesting life...I‘m halfway through it and shaking my head! 😁 6mo

I‘m finally reading this cute book! If I were reading the physical book I would be highlighting every book that Mr. Lemoncello casually integrates into his sentences! I listened to the Author at #NatBookFest #NatBookFest2018 he was so entertwining !! And I had such an awesome time at the Festival with @Bookworm83 and we had fun meeting other Littens while we were there!

ReadingRover This books was so much fun to listen to on audio! I just listened to it a few weeks ago and loved it. 7mo
tpixie @ReadingRover yes it‘s a fun audio!! I also got the e-book from the library to help me when they have more of the visual clues! 7mo
Lady_Tigana_20 This series has been on my TBR list for too long. Pretty sure my library has the ebook. Need to read it. 7mo

tpixie @Lady_Tigana_20 yes, I finally decided to give it a try!! The ebook is helpful for all the visual clues/ codes!! 7mo
jewright I read this one last fall while I was recovering from my broken leg. I liked the literary allusions, but the story kind of dragged for me. 7mo
tpixie @jewright it‘s definitely a kids book 📚 but I‘m palate cleansing 7mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @tpixie @bookworm83. Did you see that he released a new book in this series today? 6mo
Bookworm83 @Graciouswarriorprincess No, I didn‘t. Thanks for the heads up! 6mo

tpixie @Tanisha_A thanks! The purple is so pretty!! My husband and I are thinking about planting some red buds outback so there‘s more color out where we sit! I wish I had time to plant more flowers that would progressively flower throughout the summer. To keep all the colors coming! 7mo

Us Against You | Fredrik Backman
post image

Just finished this book today. It was awesome! This book and Beartown has all the feelings! Backman's writing brings out my emotions like the books I read during my childhood.

BookishMeanderings I love Backman's writing. I have Beartown on my tbr and can't wait to get to it when I have the time. 7mo
tpixie @BookishMeanderings He has become my favorite author. I really held off a long time before reading Beartown because why would I want to read about hockey?!!! but there‘s so much personal relationships it really was a great read. and my husband is a basketball coach and my kids played sports so I can relate that way too. 7mo
