🕐 This is just a gentle reminder to all the people participating in Round 7 of the Litsy Markup Postal Book Club (#LMPBC). There are less than two weeks left to read your book, mark it up, and get it into the mail. Can‘t wait to share mine with you!

Hazel2019 Mine is on its way! 📖 📦😊 6d
suvata @Hazel2019 You know what they say, “the early bird catches the worm”. 🐛 6d
Bookwormjillk On it! Thanks for the reminder. I‘m really excited for this round. 6d

I literally never seen any of these comics before and found this book. As a book lover and librarian, this book is freaking hilarious. The book is filled with comic strips varying from dating, librarian life to book suggestions. The “beaver“ is my favorite character and it bugs me because is he really a beaver or dressed up like one? Hmmmm...
Great book.

BOTM November picks are up and Woooooo this month is going to be a problem!!!! Ninth House for sure and probably like 3 others....

What is everybody else thinking.....

*Side note* you can only do 2 add-ons 😒

kamoorephoto I want to buy books I already have 😹 I don‘t know if I should get the Lisa Jewell either because it won‘t get here in time for a signing...#BOTM is always so slow to get to me. I also kind of want the BOTM copies of Ninth House (which I loved) and Ten Thousand Doors. 3w
bookish_wookish Yes! Lately my box has been slow and it used to get here so quick! If i was able to i would have gotten all 5 this month! @kamoorephoto 3w

Thank you @Chrissyreadit for tagging me!

I sometimes think I would love to be part of a book club and then sometimes I just want to read what I pick and be antisocial. 😊 Except for the first three nonfiction, these are all books I physically own and want/need to read. I think that they would all be good for discussion.

@monalyisha This was fun and hard! 🙂

Librarybelle Love your choices! 3w
Chrissyreadit Wow! I only know your first three because they are on my TBR too. Now I need to look up the others. 3w
Crazeedi Very nice!! I've read 4 of them, great choices 3w

Wanna join #MyIdealBookClub ?? Thanks to @Chrissyreadit for tagging me. I have such an eclectic taste, and so this showcases some books that I think are highly discussable.

Would you join my book club?
@monalyisha it was very difficult to choose- especially as I choose books based on mood- but these are all books I think would be better with discussion. Thanks for sharing this great idea!
@megnews here‘s my list! I‘m tagging others to share their #myidealbookclub but everyone should feel free!

TheBookAddict 🙋🏽‍♀️ in theory, yes because you have quite a few books I‘d like to read. Sadly I‘m terrible at book clubs, since I can‘t even plan my reading. I just pick up whatever catches my eye at the moment. 🤷🏽‍♀️😅 4w
Chrissyreadit @TheBookAddict I‘m the same way! But it was fun planning a hypothetical book club. And these are all on my TBR. 4w
Come-read-with-me @Chrissyreadit I would join you in a heartbeat. You have a great list of books!! I‘be added some to my TBR list 👍🏻 4w

wanderinglynn Great list! 👍🏻 I‘d join your group as several of those are on my TBR too! 4w
megnews @Chrissyreadit great choices! This year I read and loved 4w
Librarybelle I love your book club! I‘ve read close to half of these and enjoyed them. Plus, I still have books from your #NewYearWhoDis list that I need to read, so I haven‘t forgotten about that! 🙂 4w
Chrissyreadit @Librarybelle I am still tracking your list too! I think we have very similar taste. 4w
Chrissyreadit @Come-read-with-me thanks! Did you make a list? I‘d love to see what your choices are! 4w
Chrissyreadit @Librarybelle @wanderinglynn I would love too see what your lists would be! 4w
Librarybelle Okay! I‘ll think about it today and post later tonight! 🙂 4w
Chrissyreadit @megnews I‘m hoping over Christmas break to read books that I think take more time or emotion. But I keep hearing how amazing it was! 4w
Chrissyreadit @hermyknee I wonder what your list would look like? 4w
wanderinglynn I‘ll have to think about it. I‘m a mood reader, so it‘s tough to pick! 4w
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan what would you‘re hypothetical book club list look like? 4w
LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit I'm working on it. @Trashcanman hit me Friday, but I had the nephews all weekend. 2 hyperactive boys. And it RAINED!! it rained out all the Halloween events we had planned. So they got 2 trips to BN and a very tired aunt RyRy. I'll get mine posted today sometime. 4w
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan I think Halloween events and bookstore visits are a win win in either direction. 4w
Come-read-with-me @Chrissyreadit I did! I posted them late last night 😴 4w
Bookzombie I would absolutely join your book club! I have read The Dry and a number of the others are already on my TBR. I will have to think about what I would pick for my book club. It's hard not to lean towards ones I have already read and want to talk about. 😁 4w
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie I can‘t wait to see your choices! 4w
BethM I‘d come! 4w
Crazeedi I love your choices!! 4w

Chrissyreadit @LeahBergen I hope your having a great birthday- I think birthdays should be a week long celebration! What would your ideal bookclub booklist be? 4w
Avanders Oooh great list! I will have to think about this... 😁 I have a #reallifebookclub .. but I let others have a say too 😆 4w
Chrissyreadit @Avanders I have never been part of an IRL book club- I think it was hard to find one with my taste in this area. Does yours read a variety or particular genre? 4w
LeahBergen I‘ve been so busy on this birthday! 😂 In a good way, though. I‘ve been a member of an IRL book club (with both men and women which is unusual) for 22 years now. It‘s amazing! 3w
Chrissyreadit @LeahBergen wow! That sounds like a great group. 3w
mabell The Color of Magic is on my TBR too! 😄 Along with most of the Pratchetts! I‘ve only read I believe 2 so far, but I loved both of them. For my book club, I‘m still ruminating on my 12 choices... 🤔 3w

Calling all sci-fi nominations for Nov/Dec's pick! Sorry this is horribly late. It seems most of you wanted to keep these last two months as our normal schedule.

1. No direct sequels.
2. Must be sci-fi.
3. Must be available in audio, print, and ebook
4. Only 1 nomination per person

Hi @Libby1 and @jhod ! As @suvata has emailed & posted on her page, are you happy to be a group of three for #lmpbc or do you want to wait a little longer to see if someone else signs up? If you want to wait, might I suggest the 19th October as a cut-off point? It would give us 12 days to sort the books out.

jhod Im happy with a group of 3 xx 1mo
jhod But we could wait and see if we get a fourth abd if not continue as a 3? 1mo

#LMPBC ROUND 7 - WE‘RE FULL! WooHoo 🥳

Well, almost full. There is one spot left in the UK group. I have sent out an email to the three people in that group and it‘s up to you if you want to do it on a three-month rotation or wait until another person from the UK joins. After all, we have until November 1 to even start reading the book. This club fills up so quickly I wanted to get an early start this time. Thanks to everyone who signed up.

Lovesbooks87 Yay! Thanks for putting this together! 😀 1mo
suvata @Lovesbooks87 you‘re welcome. I really love doing it. I can‘t believe this is seventh round already. 1mo
Lovesbooks87 @suvata this round will be my 5th round and I have read some pretty amazing books that I would have never read without being in this postal book club! 1mo
suvata @Lovesbooks87 That is exactly one of the reasons I wanted to put this club together — to expose people to books they wouldn‘t normally pick. I am a very avid reader yet every round I get surprised by books I‘ve never even heard of before. Glad you are enjoying it too. 1mo

Emails have been sent to everyone participating in Round 7. The email includes name, email address, postal address, and Litsy name for everyone in your group.

There were 9 groups that did not have four members. Information on those groups will be mailed as soon as the group is full. If it doesn‘t fill up, you‘ll have to wait until the next round to sign up.

Let me know if you would like me to change empty genre names.

Repost for @suvata :

Who‘s ready for Round 7 of #LMPBC? I think everyone knows how it works by now but, directions and sign-up can be found at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080444aead2ca0ff2-litsy7.

NEW IN THIS ROUND:

- I have separated the groups into genres. I thought that would be fun to try. If people don‘t like it then we can switch back to the old way on Round 8.

- Non-US residents can still pick any book they want regardless of genre

CollyRae This looks so fun! This is my first time, is there anything I should know that wasn't covered in the instructions? 1mo
LitsyHappenings @CollyRae someone in your group will likely email the group once finalized to work out the details. Other questions can be directed to @Suvata ☺️ 1mo

I was going to take a break from book clubs, but I love the fact that the groups this round have specific genres. I LOVE spy thrillers/espionage books. Fingers crossed that the groups all fill up!

Owlizabeth I‘ve already signed up for fantasy, but romance is calling my name too... 2mo

I'm excited for the new take on #lmpbc! I signed up for the memoir/bibliography group. Are we allowed to sign up for multiple groups @suvata ?

suvata Sure, if you‘re willing to juggle two books a month from two different groups. It might be good to see if the groups fill up first. 2mo

Signed up for the next round of #LMBPC. It is different this round and broken down into genres. I signed up for group T because for some reason I have always picked thrillers for my book. I would love to do around round with you @aroc @EH2018 and @Honeybeegirl ! But if you want to sign up for another group I understand! 😀

Who‘s ready for Round 7 of #LMPBC? I think everyone knows how it works by now but, directions and sign-up can be found at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080444aead2ca0ff2-litsy7.

NEW IN THIS ROUND:

- I have separated the groups into genres. I thought that would be fun to try. If people don‘t like it then we can switch back to the old way on Round 8.

- Non-US residents can still pick any book they want regardless of genre.

Laughterhp What a fun idea! 2mo
Chrissyreadit Great idea! 2mo
suvata @Chrissyreadit @Laughterhp I think it might be popular. Just thought I would change it up from time to time to keep things interesting. 2mo

Wonderwoman89 Can I join this please 2mo
suvata @Wonderwoman89 Of course. Just follow the link in the post above and you can read the instructions and sign up. 2mo
Wonderwoman89 @suvata I signed up for the kids to young adult because I am now raising my 8 year old grandson and we are catching up on reading on his grade level 2mo
suvata @Wonderwoman89 that‘s a great idea. 2mo
Owlizabeth I just signed up for my first round! 2mo
suvata @Owlizabeth Yay! Welcome. 2mo
sweetpealsd Just signed up!❤️ 2mo
Kappadeemom If you end up making another thriller group, I‘d like to join! 2mo
suvata @Kappadeemom Maybe your book would fit into another category. I‘m trying to stay with the alphabetical genres if possible. This is the 1st/trial run of this so we‘ll see how it goes. 2mo
inthegreensandblues Just signed up for my first time. And the first person in Epistolary. 😊 2mo
sprainedbrain Love the groups, but I had a hard time choosing! 😂 2mo
4thhouseontheleft I was going to jump back in after a long #LMPBC break, but the Kids/YA group filled up quickly. Let me know if you decide to make another kids/YA group, that's where my interest is at the moment. If not, maybe next time! Thank you for continuing to organize LMPBC! 2mo
suvata @4thhouseontheleft No problem. Let‘s wait until closer to the middle of the month and see if any of the groups are empty. That‘s when I would make a decision about opening up a second group in the same genre. 2mo
Wife Thanks for organizing. I love ❤️ writing in my LMPBC books now! You have created a monster 🤣📚✍🏻😈 2mo

BOTM books are up for September! What is everybody thinking?!

Im not really excited about any of them 😕

GypsyKat I‘ve gone back and forth about joining BOTM, but I‘ve yet to commit to it. I feel like I would just end up skipping a lot of months. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
hjreviews @GypsyKat I was the same way for a while and joined earlier this year, and what I‘ve found is either I love 3 books or are meh about all of them. But if I‘m meh about all of them, I typically use my credit to go back and get one of the books I didn‘t get previously that I was really interested in. Still a better deal than buying them from the store 3mo
Alfoster I really liked This Tender Land! It‘s The Odyssey meets Huck Finn. 3mo

8little_paws I went for Wild Game and added on the Goldfinch so I could have a nice hardcover copy since all I have is a Kindle version. Wild Game I am not *super* excited about, but so many people have given it rave reviews perhaps I will like it more than I suspect. 3mo
GypsyKat @hjreviews good to know! I‘ll definitely keep that in mind, thanks. 😊 3mo
Redwritinghood Not excited either. Will probably skip. 3mo

Sunraven Although, does “no direct sequels” mean nominations shouldn‘t BE direct sequels, or that they can‘t have any direct sequels? Just making sure I understand. 😉 4mo
bookandcat @Sunraven they can have sequels you just can't suggest a sequel to read 4mo
