What‘s been sitting on your TBR shelf for the longest? It‘s hard for me to say for sure, but I‘ve got several contenders for this month‘s topic of #LARS.

If you‘re in the Austin area and interested in checking out our monthly Litsy bookclub meetups, let me know! New comers always welcome!

Reminder: Journal making field trip this Sat, Nov 9th, 2-5.

Here‘s today‘s photo from #LitsyATXReadersSociety. This month‘s theme was Something Spooky. Once again most people read multiple books. We had creepy in the form of haunting, ufos, killer mermaids, regular old crazy people, and paranormal occurrences. It was a fun seasonal meetup.

Group shot of #LitsyATXReadersSociety that gathered together today to discuss #classics

For those who couldn‘t make it - we‘d love to hear about what you read for this month‘s theme!

Looking forward to seeing y‘all again next month 😊

Julsmarshall Sorry I missed it! See you next month! 3mo
alysonwrites Great photo! So sad I didn‘t make it, I tried! But I couldn‘t find any parking at or near the library. 😭 I read Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens and will post a review later. I am so curious, please tell me what y‘all read! 3mo

It was #classics month for #LitsyATXReadersSociety - and we read some great ones! I loved hearing about quite a few books I haven‘t had a chance to pick up yet, and hearing different perspectives on books I‘ve read in the past. 😍📚😍

It‘s just a week until our next Litsy ATX Reader‘s Society Meeting! August‘s topic is Classics. Have you read yours yet?

This time we‘ll be on the 4th floor, room 471.

I‘ll arrive by 1 as usual if anyone would like to have coffee or a snack in the cafe or in the rooftop garden before the meeting. Hope to see you there!

We‘ve talked about doing some sort of field trip or bookish project... bring your calendars and let‘s see if we can plan one!

Eyelit I‘m looking forward to it 😃 3mo
Sg1224 I‘ll see the group next Saturday! 3mo
Julsmarshall I hope to come but will be out of town working most of the week. I‘ll have to play it by ear. 3mo

Good Morning Litsy ATX Reader‘s Society!
Our August topic is Classics. Have you chosen yours yet? I started mine a few days ago.
The August meeting will be on the 17th at 2 pm.
I hope to see you there!

Anyone else in Austin TX is welcome to join, whether you live here or will just be here visiting 😊📚.

Eyelit I‘ve changed my mind multiple times, but I think I‘ve got it selected 😂 I‘ll be there! 4mo
alysonwrites I‘ve been slowly working on my classics pick for months—it‘s a doorstop of a book! Finally cut it down to a manageable length that I can finish this month. 4mo
k.reads Yay can‘t wait! I‘ll be sharing Moby Dick and, if we all send me positive-speedy-reading vibes, Emily Wilson‘s translation of the Odyssey. 😄 3mo

jpmcwisemorgan I really like this picture. I think we need to consider take our pictures in some of the chairs at the library more often. They have a lot of great options and we could show off the library more that way. 4mo

Hi Litsy Austinites! Reminder we‘re splitting the meeting this month so those participating in the 24 in 48 this weekend have the option of tonight instead.

Tonight we‘re in room 207 at 6:30. Saturday will be in room 206 at 2:00. Feel free to come to either or to both! Saturday folks, it would be awesome if you could take and post pics of the group and your books!

See some of you tonight! ❤️📚

Eyelit Looking forward to seeing y‘all tonight! 4mo
Soubhiville @k.reads and @Sg1224 I think it may just be the two of you tomorrow, just FYI! @alysonwrites said on Slack she can‘t make it. (edited) 4mo

Have to catch up on #30junebooks as I was out of town for a bit! Here is a favorite #booksource - our beautiful Central Library (although my membership is currently expired 😅)

@howjessreads

BooknerdsLife Look gorgeous! ...You have expirations date for library membership?? 😱 5mo
SenatorMothma @BooknerdsLife they renew each year! I'm not a city resident though, and pay for my membership. Waiting to see if I really need to renew it (I have 3 other library memberships!!) 5mo

3rd meeting of the #LitsyATXReadersSociety and our theme this month was Fantasy/Sci-Fi. Of course I had to read one of both. 😄 I‘ve reviewed both of these in earlier posts and was happy to share them with local Littens. I got quite a few great recommendations as well! Love this group 🥰

Soubhiville I meant to check that sitting area out before I left... oops! Next time I‘m there I will. I‘m really interested in the sci-fi one! 5mo

Soubhiville @Lauren.Archer next meeting will be July 20, topic- POC/ own voices fiction 5mo
Soubhiville @Lauren.Archer although that IS the same weekend as the 24in48 readathon, so we may try to switch it to Friday evening instead... I know Leslie and I both wanted to participate in the readathon, so we‘ll vote on Fri/Sat this weekend. 5mo
Eyelit I‘ll be there! 5mo
