We went out for a delicious ramen dinner so I didn‘t get as much reading time today as I‘d hoped, but moving on to this used book I bought in Seattle, which was previously owned by someone in Baton Rouge, and is now being read by me in Connecticut.

Wondering why I am starving so early in the day... oh, that‘s right, we changed the clocks and it‘s causing havoc with my internal clock. Anyone else having trouble adjusting?
Sad desk lunch at eleven is a bit less sad with the #Plantagenets for company.
Apparently people in CT take their visit to the DMV seriously. They are not open for another half an hour and already ~15 people waiting outside. Glad I brought a book.
I didn‘t make it to the literary festival today, but I did find this fantastic poster at the library where we had our DAR meeting. Marty McFly says “read”.
Hey CT and CT-Adjacent Littens!
Today I will be mostly reading and enjoying my pumpkin iced coffee.
I have been waiting for this book for 2+ years (GRRM fans, I get it, I know) and now it says not available until March of 2020. I actually just emailed the publisher to ask if they have any ARCs available. I was nice about it.
Is this a jerk thing to do? Is this a reasonable ask? Has anyone else asked a publisher for an ARC? Did you get one?
I was skeptical but they were correct. #ravenclaw #cravingdonutsnow
Accompanied by crickets
1. I am planning a girls‘ trip to PEI for next summer. It is a book themed trip since we are all kindred spirits who love the Anne of Green Gables series. 🇨🇦
2. I‘ve been to six of the seven continents and am planning a trip to Antarctica. 🇦🇶🐧🐳
For once I am reading an ARC in a timely manner, as in not a year after the book was released. 🤣
It is far too hot here to do anything other than sit in the air con and read.
5/7. I missed Phoenix and Goblet.
Fun day spent in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, plus I found this cute indie bookshop. Had to limit myself to one, due to space in my bag. Beautiful area! 🇦🇺
Do people buy travel guidebooks still? #ontheroadagain
Heading to DC for DAR Continental Congress. Any other members on Litsy? #darcc19
If I had a lot of money, I would buy acres of woods. I would put a wall around them and live there like it was another time. Maybe I would find one other person to live with me there. Someone who was willing to promise they‘d never speak a word about anything in the present. I doubt I could find anyone like that. I‘ve never met anyone yet who‘d make that kind of promise.
Even though I don‘t believe in God, last year I convinced my mother to let me join the Catholic church choir in our town just so I could sing the Mozart Kyrie at Easter. I can‘t even really sing, but the thing is, if you close your eyes when you sing in Latin, and if you stand right at the back so you can keep one hand against the cold stone wall of the church, you can pretend you‘re in the Middle Ages. That‘s why I did it.
Thanks @HarperCollins and goodreads! I need to read the second in the series so I can dig into this when it arrives. Really enjoyed the first installment.
Just signed up for #lmpbc #round6 #groupN
“A cross between Umberto Eco and Anne Rice”. SOLD!
Found a nice little indie bookshop near Pike Place Market. I wish I had more time to browse but they were closing.
I have underestimated my book needs for this trip. 😕
Just finished this one on my flight. I never get this right. Anyone have any good bookstore recommendations in Seattle?
Did we post our pic from this weekend? I didn‘t see it so I‘m sharing. Nice to meet everyone and hope to get together again soon! #ctlitsymeetup
