A beautiful book about a woman who is tortured by her dreams so commits suicide and goes to book heaven. I read it on the train on the way home from work on this cold and windy day as I need to return it to the library.

So totally for this book until the end which made me more upset than anything for personal reasons but still a very compelling short story. I like the idea a lot and hope to see my bookmobile one day.

I posted about this one a few months ago but wanted to repost for #becausethenight. Not only is it a fantastic book but also perfect for the prompt.

This is a short graphic novel but any reader will be able to visualize themselves in the bookmobile. #marchintothe70s

Cinfhen I missed your original post so thanks for posting again ❣️❣️❣️ 8mo
gradcat Omigod...I think this one might have been written just for (the teenaged) me! 🥰 8mo

I like a dark twist as much as the next gal, but there needs to be some sense to it, and this one seemed to come out of nowhere. I love the idea behind a bookmobile that houses all that you‘ve read in your life, and the concept of becoming the librarian in charge of that is intriguing, but this needed more build-up to make sense.

I would need a whole Winnebago just to house my unfinished books. 😂

This is a delightful short story about a woman that stumbles upon a bookmobile one night. It houses every single book she‘s ever read, and she becomes obsessed with it, to the point that the bookmobile and reading overtake her life. It has a dark undertone but is also exciting.

And with this book, I‘ve completed #pop18 🥳🥳🥳🥳

I would love to see with my own eyes all the books I ever read all in one room, how big would it be? How impressive? How?? This book was short and thought-provoking.

This was originally a short story that was condensed in to a mini graphic novel. I love the story concept and would enjoy reading the original story because this left me hungry for more!

kyraleseberg @vivastory Me too!! I actually put a hold at the library after I saw your post about it :) 2y

A charming & short graphic novel with surprising emotional depth. The titular bookmobile randomly appears. It is personalized for each individual & contains everything they've read. The main character is only allowed a few hours to browse before she is asked to leave & has no idea when she'll see the bookmobile again.

Texreader Sounds very odd; and then I saw the author. Having to add this to the tbr list! 2y
vivastory @Texreader I really liked it. Short & the art is great. 2y
TieDyeDude I first heard of this as a reading on the Selected Shorts podcast. Loved it! The art in the print version is good. 2y
vivastory @GoodForCirculation I'd never heard of Selected Shorts before. It looks really interesting though. Thanks for the tip! I loved the art in this 2y

This is my library's #bookmobile! I hope someday soon that I can help man it and see how one of these puppies operates (via books, not mechanics 😂😜). The only other bookmobile I've ever come across is Penguin Random House's when they have it at the Javits Center for #BookCon. Our library's bookmobile is a much bigger beast. #LitsyLovesLibraries

TheLondonBookworm That is so epic- I want one!!! 3y
audiothing Remind me of the days years ago, when I lived in Cornwall. The library van trundled in to the village on every other Tuesday. What a wonderful service that was 3y

RachelO @audiothing Yes! The first library I remember was the van-at-the-top-of-the-lane in Devon. Don't think there are many left here now. 3y
LeahBergen I loved the bookmobile as a kid! 😩 3y
LibrarianJen Our library has a bookvan that takes books to the all the senior homes since they can't come to the library. We also have a gizmo mobile that has all kinds of electronics and they go around to various places and teaches people how to use them. 3y
Aseleener I love our bookmobile. It used to park right in front of my house. That was the life! 3y
LEGolasa We just lost our Bookasaurus 😔 and yes that's what we call our bookmobile 😀. Apparently it ran it's course as being an integral part of the community. The county didn't think it was worth the money spent on it 😬😬 3y
minkyb I had the bookmobile every week in elementary school. I wish It still existed. Great memories. 3y
Elizabeth2 The bookmobile used to pull right up into the court I lived on when I was a kid. I loved bookmobile days. ❤️I don't know if our county has one anymore. They've opened more library branches, so everyone is a bit closer to a library now. 3y

One of those books that feels like it was written for me-so many people must be head over heels for this story! It's far from flawless and I felt the end was unnecessarily severe. I can't stop thinking about it though-always a good sign. She's a captivating writer with a real flair for the unexplainable. This will be on my bookshelf for a long time to come.

I love the library! I was super surprised that my library even had this graphic novel. They don't have many in their catalogue.

CynCruz23 Just picked this up from my library too! A lot of people I know think the library is old fashioned and stodgy but they don't know how hip it actually is. While they go out and spend money on books they're not sure, I'll be enjoying my FREE previews! 🤗 3y
Adrienne_KG @CynCruz23 I borrow around 5 books per week from my local library. It's a win-win for everyone! I'm saving money and don't feel as guilty if I don't finish a book because I didn't pay for it AND my support keeps my local library open! So many libraries and bookshops closing - it's sad 😥 3y
