Just got my 2020 planner! Not only will it keep me organized 🤞🏻 but it also provides all kinds of interesting book facts. For example, did you know that Gertrude Stein and Alice Toklas named their dog “Basket?” 🐶

Princess-Kingofkings I love that planner!! 16h

I found many of my favorite authors in this book (Alice Hoffman, Anne Lamott, Elizabeth Berg, Kate Atkinson, Sark) and loved reading their personal stories about the books that impacted them most. (I also added quite a few of their picks to my TBR. 😉📚) This an older book published in 2007, but I still wish it included less politicians and more diverse authors.

ljuliel Do you recall if Elizabeth Berg mentioned Maeve Binchy ? In one of her books I recently read, her character in the book was reading a Maeve Binchy book, and mentioned that she cried when she heard Maeve had died. I was wondering if Berg was a huge fan of hers and put that in her fictional story as a sort of tribute ? 3d

The #ReadHarder challenge for 2020 is up already! https://bookriot.com/2019/12/03/2020-read-harder-challenge/

This is the only reading challenge I do. It really helps me diversify my reading and keeps me out of any ruts. This year's list looks like a good one, although there are definitely some categories where I'll be fishing for recommendations. (Anybody know any good books by refugees? Books about climate change?) #ReadHarder2020

effani Also, I have a feeling that the people complaining that the tasks get more specific every year weren't doing it in 2017, which included greatest hits like “A collection of poetry in translation on a theme other than love“ and “A book published by a micropress.“ I made it through that; nothing on this year's list can throw me. 6d

You never know what you're going to unearth while reorganizing your bookshelves. Just randomly flipping through it I discovered promising titles such as, "The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Metal Lunch Boxes," "How to Cook Roadkill: Gourmet Cooking," & "Levitation for Terrestrials." Talk about TBR explosion! ?

Chrissyreadit Hmmm...I see Scouts In Bondage on the shelf.... 1w
Chrissyreadit Wait is the Groping? Is this old school erotica? 1w
vivastory @Chrissyreadit According to the book Groping is a 1933 novel about social struggle by Naomi Ellington Jacob. No sexual meaning was originally intended 1w

sprainedbrain Quite a collection! 😂 1w
Theaelizabet I want the Illustrated Encyclopedia of Metal Lunch Boxes. Really. 😚 1w
TalecArashi @vivastory I wonder if the Watership Down chapter named Groping is a reference to the book, or if the word just lost an entire meaning somewhere? 1w
readordierachel My small plants are in need of ice cream, so this book would be perfect 😆 1w
