Starting Line: #48 HBC

Embedded image permalinkMs. Yingling Reads

Plan: Have some things to do this morning, and might not be near computer, so will post #48HBC Starting Line even though the reading won't actually begin until noon. This year, I can get the reading done, but the computerized socializing might be more sporadic.

Revelation: Twitter and Instagram would be so much easier with a smart phone instead of a laptop. Tumblr may be beyond my capabilities. But look! Got my #bookaday Pic Badge, even if I didn't post it quite right!

Confession: Sylvie got a treat for agreeing to sit on top of my TBR (Hope to make a big dent in that!), and she is, in fact, glued to my side most of the time. (She is even guarding me from the house in last year's photo shoot.)

But the dog at the left isn't Sylvie! It's Library Jim's dog! How weird is that?

Off to do, you know, real life things, then on to the FUN!

  1. Stopped by to say happy reading! Don't even have my post up yet, but will do that later today...off to work, doing inventory, which in the midst of packing up the library is rather relaxing! LOVE the pic of your dog, glad she agreed to sit atop the TBR.

  2. Oh wow, your dogs do look similar! And that is such a cute photo.

    (Maybe I can get Pat and Pais to pose with my books this weekend.)

  3. Ah!
    What a great picture of your pup atop the piles! I admit, I bribed my bunny with raisins to the same effect. ;)

  7. Good strategy, using dog to attract blog visitors! I should try sticking the cat on top of mine....

    I hope the reading goes well!

  11. Good luck with your TBR pile (and that is quite a pile) but luckily you have Sylvie to help. Happy reading!

  12. Your TBR is impressive as always, and the pictures are charming. I hope you're having fun with it! I'm glad I'm not the only one who has trouble keeping up with Twitter!

  13. Yes, indeed, your TBR pile is indeed impressive. The Iron Guy will do well to get halfway through his pile of 5 books! Hope you're having a good time.

  14. Love the excitement here! So far I have a dog and a bunny mascot in our line up of #48hbc participants. I need to find a cat, hamster, and a pot-bellied pig now. ;)
