    Olympic Read-a-thon

    Hi Friends! Shelf Space is hosting a read-a-thon in June. It is a competitive team based read-a-thon with 16 possible prompts, each one completed earns your team points. The teams are determined randomly and to join you only need to sign up by 5/24. All of the information is available on the Shelf Space discord server. https://discord.gg/pMP9NG I am joining, so don't be a square and sign up too. Maybe we will be on the same team, or maybe we will be competing against one another. Either way, it will be F-U-N! I know I have a ton of books to read in June, why not make it more fun with a competition? Jessie Mae put up a video announcement with some of the details. Check it out

    I love Discord, been using it since it replaced Ventrilo as a gamer. Much easier to navigate through the channels and quickly change between servers. I'm the opposite of all y'all, I don't like forums. BUT I'M TRYING!!! I'm a Team Captain for this readathon and we've been working on it for the last 4 months, so would love to see you guys!

    I'm filming a vlog and doing some Spring cleaning around the house, the husband is tackling the yard. Besides that I hope to film and edit my review for First Law to have it on the channel tomorrow evening. If the weather stays nice, I'll go for a long walk with the dogs, the eldest turned 3 today so my husband went on a drive with him (he loves sitting in the car, we don't know why ).

    Hoping to join Las on Sunday with Sherlock. I have half of E03 to watch. Going to look at the problem with the Smart curtains. Depressing to even mention it. Literally no other plans. Which will hopefully mean a bit of gaming, watching films, or maybe cooking up something nice. I have a Teriyaki marinade that's calling out for some attention.

    The Ketogenic Diet

    That looks delicious! I should really start reducing my carb intake. I don't think I'll want to go keto (also don't know if I'm allowed, I've had some damage in the past because I suffered from ketoacidosis when I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes) but having a limited amount of carbs (let's say max 100grams a day) would definitely be beneficial for my health. Unfortunately I'm really lazy and often just eat takeaway but something has got to change. I'll check this topic once in a while to see if you have sugar-free recipes that I can easily use!

    I only have Netflix, but I have... Other ways I could get a movie. I think what is available on my Netflix is different than what is available on the US one anyway unfortunately.

    I don't like discord either. I don't know why everyone uses it. You can still join, just find a prompt that matches the books you already plan to read! That's what I did.

    I think I scared myself watching too much horror as a kid so now I have a hard time. Steve can usually get me to watch it if I can watch a pallet cleanser like Curb your enthusiasm, before bed lol

    Where do I sign up? Now, if you pick a horror film, I may watch it with my eyes closed and ears covered, so that might make discussion interesting.

    Yes, but I have a feeling that's different. I suspect most of the money made on the game has been from people paying to improve cosmetics. The additional cost to xbox that gives you access to Fortnite, gives you lots of other things too. So it's hard to discern what proportion goes to that one game. My son has spent over £120 on cosmetic changes on Fortnite alone. More than i've spent on any other game, excluding pay monthly MMO's back in the day, and even then, probably only the one game - DAOC. He's only allowed to spend money he's made through chores on it. No savings.

    Hi everyone! I created events for our meetup to talk about the Raven's Shadow trilogy: As you can see, one book per month, starting with Blood Song in June. At the moment @Lasraik, @EpicTalez and I will each host one meetup on our channel. I will make the announcement on my channel somewhere next week, but this way anyone here already knows and can make their TBR for the next couple of months if they want to join!

    Hah, understandable, I think I have a similar amount at this point, but at least I've already read Blood Song before So, seems it's going to be us, @Lasraik and @EpicTalez If you're both still up for it at least, don't feel pressured. I'm going to announce it on my channel somewhere next week, so by then I'd like to know Who wants to do which liveshow? I don't have a preference.

    Started watching Bloodline on Netflix after scrolling looking through Netflix for a bit. Three episodes in and it's not bad. Big fan of Friday night lights so good to see Kyle Chandler again. A lot of episodes in the first series which find odd as feels like 8 episode series. On Amazon started watching Buffy and last season of Vikings.

    What do you collect?

    Luckily in Belgium, the 'good' breeders don't overcharge, prices are somewhat the same as before (1000-1500 euros for a puppy), but the puppymills are increasing their price to absurd amounts. At this point you're paying more for a dog like that compared to one with a pedigree. Unfortunately the good breeders have insane waiting lists (waiting 2+year for a puppy for most breeds) I don't care about the pedigree that much to be honest, but here you either choose one with a pedigree, or you get one from a puppymill. Almost no in between... (Or ofcourse shelter, but I've never seen pups there and with the dogs we currently have, I don't want to risk bringing an adult dog in the mix. My dogs can be assholes around adult dogs they don't know...)

    Plans for the Weekend? 5.14.21 Edition

    They were up 2 weeks and someone in my house thought it would be a good idea to add tie backs (ropes that keep them tied open) and not tell my son. Who shortly after tried to shut them. The motor now grinds and nothing happens. They were expensive, but it was the 10-20 hours of effort and thought getting them up that really pisses me off.

    A lot of reading, as usual. I am reading a series that I am not particularly fond of right now, I don't really want to give up but I may have to step away from it and move on for now. I have other books on my May TBR that I am dying to get to and when I am reading something you aren't enjoying I find that I tend to read it a lot slower. Our son starts some summer college classes Monday and he is taking a full load, so I plan to spend the weekend doing some meal prep for the week ahead. I will be on the road a lot! I'm kind of looking forward to that a little. I used to be taxi a lot more, so it feels like a return to normal life. I may not be saying that at the end of the summer! Gardening is always in the plans Also planning to join in on Sherlock discussion. Excited about that, I really liked the first season.

    Streaming Services?

    So to get a better idea of what movies are on the table, let's start with which streaming services we all have or how we acquire movies we watch. I currently use: Hulu HBOMax But I'm open to getting another service like Netflix if most of you use it. Knowing which services or ways we all get movies will help with starting nominations and a schedule.

    Nice! I look forward to your video! I'm finding it hard lately to find movies that interest me, but knowing that there'll be a discussion afterwards would increase my investment in any movie.

    Page Counts on Goodreads

    You can't change the page count for an edition that is already setup. BUT...you can add an edition with the new page counts. On the book page scroll down to where the edition information is, and click Add a New Edition. This will open a window to enter the new edition's information. Somethings will fill in automatically from the original edition (like description, title and author). This is easier to do on a computer, but here is a quick set of screenshots.

    It's a great idea, that i would support. But i totally get that, for live discussions at least, timezones will make if tough for all of us. And that's to be expected.

    I only read the prologue so far, but my weekend starts tomorrow so I hope to get a big chunk read the next couple of days! The prologue was already very promising, it immediatly gave me the feeling of traditional fantasy.

    The first series is exceptional. Goes downhill after that, but quite slowly. Really good cast in S02, but not enough. I hear they're working on an S04

    Plans for the Weekend? 5.8.21 Edition

    They look good! Seems to be a marinade, or something on the top, or is that just what's in 'em? Spent last weekend pottering. Fin wanted to build something out of wood, so we both put together a small workbench to help him, and that was all he had capacity for. But it's built anyway. Cooked a curry on Sat night and a mighty lasagne last night. Watched E01S01 Sherlock last night. Helped a neighbour shift a ton of topsoil into a flowerbed and got the below as an offering at my doorstep an hour later. So Sat night was SORTED! Had a really tough time Sat night, as my son tried to shut the motorised curtains, after my wife put in new tie-backs. It don't work no more, and i don't have the heart to look at it yet. I was not a happy bunny. We've booked to go with friends for food and a drink on the 22nd. First time out for a year. On the 22nd, this is going to be me...

    Thanks. Ours is a bit of a barker. It's a mixed blessing, in that anyone at the door gets an earful. But it also means that any overnight prowlers get the same (not had any yet tho). We're going to try to train her our of postman barking offenses before the TT arrives. Just FYI, dogs in the UK are ridiculously expensivesince lockdown. You can pay £4-5k for our current dog, which is 4 times what we paid for her 2.5 years ago. The TT comes from ethical breeders, who charge reasonable rates akin to Winnie.
