inspringthedawn I haven't made much progress on my current read, which I randomly chose by opening up one of the book boxes and picking up the first one I saw on the top. But this organic vegan strawberry cashew 'cheesecake' was very tasty!

inspringthedawn So I finally finished a book this week! The first one in over two months! With all the moving stuff, and related stress and busy-ness, I just couldn't concentrate on reading, or even have time to read!
In truth, I actually read over half of this a month ago on my flights back to San Diego - a few hours of respite - but then things got crazy again, so it wasn't until this week that I finally got back to it. It's so nice to read something again!

inspringthedawn So this is what about 40 boxes of books look like.
The movers delivered our stuff today, so now I just have to unpack everything!
At least the cats think it's fun.

  •   kdsundell We're building a house in Ottawa, lots of room for visitors! We will have to come visit, last time I was there was your wedding! 2w
  •   inspringthedawn @nafizaaz I know! But kind of fun too. I need more shelves probably since I only brought a couple. 2w
  •   inspringthedawn @kdsundell Nice! I'd love to visit, I've never been to Ottawa! And yes, you should come out here too! :) 2w

inspringthedawn Anyone in the San Diego area want to take these old ARCs off my hands? Since you're not supposed to sell them, or donate them to someplace that will sell them, what's a girl to do with the ones I've either read, or don't think I ever will, and don't feel the need to keep? #bookwormproblems

  •   monnibo @bildungsromans I've seen a YA ARC Club at the Vancouver Public Library. 3w
  •   bildungsromans Cool @monnibo -- I just meant in general libraries can't do much with them and usually already have their own surplus. Awesome for Vancouver for finding a great solution! @inspringthedawn I just remembered that sometimes we are able to donate YA ARCs to local teen shelters or juvenile detention centers. It helps to check with the personnel first, especially with the detention centers as sometimes they have requirements about the content of the books they can accept. 3w
  •   inspringthedawn @ramyasbookshelf That's so funny! 3w
  •   inspringthedawn @monnibo That's great VPL has that club! @bildungsromans Another nice idea! 3w

inspringthedawn Just some of the books that didn't survive the big pre-move purge of 2016. I still have way too many books, and this big sorting made me realize just how bad the unread situation is. Yikes! I think for the rest of the year I really need to #readmyowndamnbooks!

  •   inspringthedawn @gnoe Oops, I guess I never replied. Sorry! Back to Canada after all these years (almost 19!) mainly because my father's health is failing. H is still in California for work. 3w
  •   inspringthedawn @tulipbooks It's taken me many years to get to this point, but when your shipment is charged by weight and there are books you're just not interested in anymore... 😬 3w

inspringthedawn I can't wait for life to calm down a bit since I always seem to be behind these days. But here is a belated pic of the March @landfallfreight Box : Hello! Tokyo!

inspringthedawn Thank you to @eccobooks for this fun tote bag! A few weeks ago they had a giveaway, and I actually won one of them! And you can never have too many bookish tote bags!

The books were not included, but are some Ecco imprint titles I bought previously and that are waiting impatiently in my TBR mountain. Have you read any of them?

inspringthedawn A belated pic of the February @theboxwalla Book Box. Of course I couldn't resist a literary fiction / world literature book box! The three books included:

A True Novel, Minae Mizumura
Autobiography of Red, Anne Carson
A Heart So White, Javier Marias

+ a J.D. Salinger notebook from @obviousstate

I actually already have a copy of A True Novel, but no surprise, haven't read it yet. I'm looking forward to reading all of these when life finally calms down a bit.

  •   inspringthedawn @fullybooked That's good to hear! And somehow I missed the comments before and never replied! Sorry! 1mon
  •   inspringthedawn Thanks @caecilia_saori! I hope things will begin to calm down next month. I definitely escape with TV when life is stressful. Sometimes it's easier than trying to concentrate on a book, though it can depend on the genre for me. I haven't read anything by Mizumura before so don't really know. Looking forward to it though! And btw, sorry for the late reply, somehow I missed the comments before! 1mon
  •   inspringthedawn @ramyasbookshelf Sorry! Somehow I missed the comments here and never replied! I really like the curation of the box! I'd recommend it if you like world literature and being introduced to new authors from around the globe. 1mon
  •   caecilia_saori @inspringthedawn ~ no worry on the late reply, we all need some time off from bookstagram & co, now and then 1mon

inspringthedawn I finally read Outlander a little over a year ago - after watching the first half of the first season of the TV series and before the second part aired - I really should get around to reading the second book soon.

inspringthedawn Just say no to algorithms, and Instagram dictating which photos we're allowed to see. See you on the weekend! #boycottinstagramalgorithms #boycottinstagram #keepinstagramthisway #keepinginstagramchronological #saynotoalgorithms 2mon

inspringthedawn Life has been so busy lately I haven't had much time to read, take or post pics, but I still try to pop in and see everyone else's photos. However, Instagram's proposed update that will no longer allow us to see the photos we want in the order we want makes me so sad. This was one of the main reasons I quit Facebook a while ago! Instagram is the only social media I use regularly at the moment, but that will no longer be the case if this really happens. So I'm joining the 24-hour boycott of Instagram in an effort to make them see that their greed is not the answer. Please consider joining in if you are also against the planned algorithms. #boycottinstagram #boycottinstagramalgorithms #keepinstagramchronological #minirant #notoalgorithms #saynotoalgorithms 2mon

inspringthedawn What's better than bookmail? Unexpected bookmail!
Last month I entered to win a Chatterbox of Dan Vyleta's upcoming new novel, Smoke. Then, I forgot about it since I rarely win things on the internet. But earlier this week, a box from @penguinrandomhouse arrived with all these treats inside!! A Smoke ARC, along with a bookmark, discussion guide (not shown), tea, candies, and a candle! Thank you so much to @doubledaybooks for this wonderful surprise and fun themed box!

inspringthedawn February wrapup: 4 comics and one memoir. Considering I didn't read much of anything during my two weeks away, it's not too bad I guess.
Favourite of the month: The Nameless City, with her other two close behind. I've said it before but I love Faith Erin Hicks' art!

  •   zintellectualbadassz I love the game the Last of Us. It's really good! Is the comic the same? 3mon
  •   inspringthedawn @zintellectualbadassz I believe so. I got it originally because of Faith Erin Hicks and the story sounded cool. Later I found out it was based on a game. Almost makes me want to start gaming! 3mon

inspringthedawn Sometimes, you can't help but buy a new book even when you're in the middle of a STRICT book buying ban. In my defense, it was discounted AND I had a B&N coupon.
