⭐️⭐️
As an MZD fan, I really wanted to love this, but I just didn‘t. The story is okay, but reading it feels clunky. There are 3 different ways you can read it and I feel like that nesting of the stories was detrimental to all variations, especially the shortest one. I also don‘t really like the look of the book. The art, for the most part, isn‘t my thing and the use of WordArt type fonts throughout just doesn‘t look good.

When Strand Bookstore comes through and you still get your signed copy of Mark Z. Danielewski‘s new book. 💙

Te Araroa kilometers tramped: 224.8 of 3005.3

Books completed on trail: 4

This book can be read three different ways. My bf read two of them to me on our first day off from hiking. MZD books are always fun and interactive.

As I mentioned in my previous post, a friend and I went book shopping on Saturday. Of course, I ended up buying a few things, including this. New Danielewski! I‘m so excited! 😄

TheRiehlDeal Have you read his other books? I heard House of Leaves was really confusing. Debating whether to get into his work. 2mo
shadowspeak17 @TheRiehlDeal I haven‘t read Only Revolutions yet, but I‘ve read his other novels and really liked them. I don‘t know that I‘d say House of Leaves is confusing. It‘s just kind of a lot... if that makes any sense. I really liked it though and would definitely recommend it. 2mo

Repost for @heylaurenmack :

Long shot ask - Anybody in the NYC (Strand bookstore) Nov 11 or Atlanta (Wrecking Bar Brewpub) Nov 13 areas wanna do me a huge favor and make my life? My favorite author is releasing this new book & doing a signing. I can‘t make it because of work. I‘d pay you for the book and the shipping and you‘d be making my whole life. And you‘d get to meet a brilliant author. #nyc #atlanta #houseofleaves #markzdanielewski

Long shot ask - Anybody in the NYC (Strand bookstore) Nov 11 or Atlanta (Wrecking Bar Brewpub) Nov 13 areas wanna do me a huge favor and make my life? My favorite author is releasing a new book (tagged) and doing a signing. I can‘t make it to either location cause of work. I‘d pay you for the book and the shipping and you‘d be making my whole life. And you‘d get to meet a brilliant author. #nyc #atlanta #houseofleaves #markzdanielewski

Cinfhen I wonder if Strand is offering signed copies for sale?? Or do you want it personalized?? Sorry, can‘t help you but it‘s a good idea to put it out on the Litsyverse!! Also ask @LitsyHappenings to repost for you!!! 3mo
heylaurenmack @Cinfhen Yeah! I found I could just order a regular old signed copy. Shooting for a personalized since he‘s my fav but if I have to settle I will. 3mo
Cinfhen Good luck 🍀 🤞🏽 3mo

Kaylamburson I so wish I could do that for you tomorrow, @MrBook!, but i have to head to CT right after work to get fitted for invisalign. Yay, dentistry lol. I hope someone is able to for you! 2mo
Caterina Wish I could help!! I hope someone can!🤞 2mo
heylaurenmack @Caterina I ended up preordering a regular old signed copy from Strand. Still holding out someone will be able to snag me a personalized one but it doesn‘t look hopeful 2mo
Caterina Bummer. 😓 I hope you get to meet the author someday yourself! ❤️ 2mo
mrozzz Sorry I‘m not actually working in NYC anymore! @MrBook I‘m glad you‘re getting a signed edition and hope you can get a personalized copy in the future @heylaurenmack 2mo

Reading #TheLittleBlueKite again. This illustration gets me, every time. I can't wait for this to come out next month, so you all can read it, too. I need more people to talk to about it! #love #fear #Kai #kidlit #middlegrade #alsoadults #MarkZDanielewski #MZD

One thing I love about #TheLittleBlueKite is despite all the parts geared toward the youngest readers - there are multiple ways to read it - those of us who love #MarkZDanielewski 's other works have all kinds of things to find and pick apart or just enjoy. This is one of the illustrations that strikes me most, on initial reads. #TLBK #HouseofLeaves #OnlyRevolutions #T50YS #TheFamiliar #love #joy #fear #Kai #kites #flying #skies #kids #kidlit

I cannot tell you all how special a book this is. It's for children. It's for middle grades. And it's for adults. Depending upon which way you read it; there are at least three or four ways to read it. #joy #fear #loss #love #HouseofLeaves #HoL #OR #OnlyRevolutions #T50YS #TF #TheFamiliar #MZD #MarkZDanielewski #BeaHymnforGood
