#AnneRice

Q is definitely my most ambivalent letter for #ManicMonday. I‘m firm on my book & show picks; otherwise, I‘m like 🤷‍♀️.

Book: The Queen of the Damned - Anne Rice

Author: I haven‘t read enough from Questlove to say if he‘s a FAVE, but he‘s got me intrigued.

Show: Queer Eye

Band: Queen? Probably?

Song: I only have 3 Q songs in my music library. Quand Vous Mourez de Nos Amours (Rufus Wainwright) and Quittin Time (The Band Perry) are both good.

DNF- I tried and I really liked it in the beginning, but I could not get into it after the first main story.

emz711 It's a slog but somehow kept me hooked through all of them 3w

Today's modest library haul and a question:

As do most of you, I'm betting, I read a lot and enjoy engaging with ideas and the ways that stories/fiction can help us work through situations and emotions that are hard to get our heads around in real life. Books are a huge part of my life, and yet when I talk to most people, I rarely mention books/reading, and when I do, I feel almost embarrassed. I don't know why this is.

Does anyone else do this?

mcctrish I talk about what I read all the time. I‘m reading Cultish right now and it has a lot to say about multi-level marketing companies and brands like Peloton and how they use “cult speak” and I just need to talk about it. I‘m pretty sure people are used to me by now 🤣🤣🤣 1mo
Aimeesue Depends on where I am. At work, people don't read, apparently, but I help run the book sale at my church, so I'm pretty well known as a reader there. And happily there are a lot of readers, so I'm always talking books or recommending to someone. (edited) 1mo
ImperfectCJ @Aimeesue I guess this might be my issue, that I don't really have an IRL "reader" space. I should probably get in the habit of mentioning it to people I just meet so I can feel them out a bit. Who knows? They might be readers and are just waiting for an excuse to talk books. 1mo

ImperfectCJ @mcctrish That is an incredibly interesting concept! No wonder you always want to talk about it! That's a topic I'd have to tread carefully around, though, given the people I know. I used to bring up Timothy Snyder's The Road to Unfreedom all the time, but that's not a conversation that I find is usually welcome, either because people interpret it as political or because they find it boring. 1mo
mcctrish Oh I might need to listen to that ( I love non-fiction on audio) and then share 🤣🤣 1mo
ImperfectCJ @mcctrish The audio was great! I listened to it and also bought be the print book so I could underline and make notes (it's pretty dense). 1mo
bthegood so glad you mentioned this - I work at a University so mentioning reading is not a negative although I tend to mention it in terms of texts, not for leisure - I am going to make a conscious effort to mention reading for leisure more often - #noapologiesforreading 😊 1mo

Started this book, it‘s starting out sloow….

5feet.of.fury I‘m hoping to get back to it, but it is very rambling and slow to start, I put it down at only a few chapters in. 1mo
persephone1408 I am 80% thru it...but I stop and read other things. And then go back. It is a tough one. 1mo
