The Freedom to Read | American Library Association

The Missouri Library Association is fighting against Missouri House Bill 2044 which would appoint a “parent group” to pass into law censorship of library books. I can only hope the librarians and library patrons who fight against this censorship win this battle. #censorship #freedomtoread #ala #ireadbannedbooks

I picked up this cookbook at #ala this year. I am a vegetarian and this book had mostly things I cannot eat. But I liked the spice mixes, though.

This was a volume two, which I picked up at #ala and did not read the first of. It was for younger readers. The art was a little simple. But the story was cute.

Joined today after the joint Litsy/LibraryThing meetup yesterday evening. Thanks, Tim, for getting me into the Exhibits to get all these great books!

BookFreakOut Hello again! I also picked up Luminous Dead and Terra-Two! Managed to get everything packed up under the airline weight limit. 7mo
drneutron @BookFreakOut Luminous Dead will probably be the first one I read, but unfortunately, I picked up 6 library books before I left (and have a seventh waiting for me). So I have to figure out how to interleave the two batches. 😁 7mo
charl08 Still super impressed by this haul. One day I will get to an ALA meeting! 7mo

SqueakyChu Welcome to Litsy! Great book haul! I‘m sure you‘ll get them all read...eventually! I hope you enjoy Litsy. I find it fun to post brief messages here about books as I read them. (edited) 7mo
drneutron Thanks! I‘ve been posting as I finish, but will probably add those in process too. 7mo
SqueakyChu @drneutron So how have you been enjoying Litsy? I love to stop right in the middle of a book just to jot down my thoughts here. 6mo
drneutron So far, I‘ve enjoyed seeing the range of what folks are reading! 6mo
humouress I'm still working out how to use Litsy, but I'm finding it useful to put down thoughts/ quotes as I read. Then I can use them to write a review on LibraryThing (and then bring the review back here and work out how to condense it right down). (edited) 5mo

This is what I dragged home on the Metro. 😁
I really tried to stick with diverse books, and there were SO many books in translation, books set outside the US, and #ownvoices. It was really great to see. I'm excited to read these. Exhausted, but glad I went. #ALA

LeahBergen Nice! 👍🏻 7mo

vivastory Ah, never mind. I see your hashtag. 7mo
Aimeesue @vivastory 😂 It was at the ALA annual conference in DC. I live very close by, so took advantage of the Litsy passes for the exhibits hall yesterday. 7mo

Anyone going to ALA this year? Perhaps we could have a meet up?

#ala #americanlibraryassociation #litsyloveslibraries

kamoorephoto I had every plan to, but alas, I am trying to leave my horrible home-life situation. Life is mean sometimes. 8mo
SkeletonKey @kamoorephoto - Oh no! I‘m sorry about the timing but truly happy for you if you‘re getting out of a bad situation. Better things on the horizon. Let me know if you need someone to talk to. 8mo
