My 2nd nonfiction book for February and in celebration of Black History Month, I'm currently reading Before The Mayflower by Lerone Bennett Jr. This book has been around me for at least 25 years and I had never decided to read it...until now. Bennett's book is considered an essential book for Black History and it seems to be a comprehensive view of Black America from 1619 to the present. Full review to come. #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory

Lesliereads I can‘t tell you how long I have owned a copy of this book and have yet to read it all the way though! #Goals 3d
Kammbia1 @Lesliereads It is a dense read for sure. It will be an achievement when I finish it. LOL!! 3d

On my #TBR shelf for the rest of February and March. Moloka‘i is my pick for #LMPBC Group H - hope you haven‘t read it Group! This is an ambitious stack for me - I don‘t have as much time to read as I‘d like, but #goals!

Yoshi-and-a-book 👍 I have it. But I‘ll wait for yours to get here! 5d
JackOBotts Sounds great! @Yoshi-and-a-book @megnews @JenniferTapler - here‘s what I‘m thinking for my selection, have any of you read it? 5d
JenniferTapler @JackOBotts no! But it‘s been on my “want to read” list for awhile!! 5d

Yoshi-and-a-book I‘m thinking about this one. Undecided. 4d
JenniferTapler @Yoshi-and-a-book sounds good! 👍🏻 4d
megnews @JenniferTapler I read Moloka‘i for the first round of lmpbc I did. 4d
megnews @JackOBotts Rules of Civility is on my tbr. Can‘t wait to read it! 4d
megnews @Yoshi-and-a-book I‘ve never read The Truth of the Matter. Sounds interesting. 4d
JenniferTapler @megnews hmmm. Did you like Moloka‘i? What about Honolulu? (I‘d like to pick something culturally significant to where I live - don‘t HAVE to, but trying to) 4d
JenniferTapler How do you guys tag book titles in the middle of a comment? I can only figure out how to put it at the end. @megnews @Yoshi-and-a-book @JackOBotts 4d
JackOBotts You live in Hawaii, @JenniferTapler ? I don‘t know how to do tags mid-comment...🤷🏻‍♀️ that would be good to know, though. (And I have not read Honolulu, so that title works for me, as well.) 4d
JenniferTapler @JackOBotts yes, specifically Maui. 4d
megnews @JenniferTapler I loved Moloka‘i and looking forward to the sequel. I haven‘t read Honolulu. I don‘t think you can tag book titles in the middle of a comment. If you can I‘ve never figured out how. 4d
JackOBotts @megnews @Yoshi-and-a-book @JenniferTapler - 🤓 do y‘all have a preference for ink color? I‘m thinking green ink for my mark ups...and what I wouldn‘t give to live in Maui on these colder winter days. 😎🌴 3d
megnews @JackOBotts @JenniferTapler @Yoshi-and-a-book My favorite color is purple! 💜💜💜 3d
JenniferTapler I‘ll use blue! @megnews @JackOBotts @Yoshi-and-a-book 3d
Yoshi-and-a-book Pink 💕💝👚👛🌸🌷💒🎀💖 @megnews @JackOBotts @JenniferTapler (edited) 3d
Yoshi-and-a-book @JackOBotts @JenniferTapler so...tagging during a comment. There‘s a tag 🏷 icon next to the skull and crossbones right below the text entry box when you‘re posting a comment. The skull and crossbones ☠️ is used when you‘re posting a spoiler- something that would give a away or spoil the book for those who haven‘t read it yet. Tap the text box to add a comment and these two icons appear. Tap the tag 🏷 and tag away! (edited) 3d

After a long fight with myself I have finally decided to stop requesting books on Netgalley unless I really really want them. These are the last two on my shelf and after that NO MORE! I am determined to listen to more audiobooks, finish my BOTM backlist and my picks from my own shelves. #goals

• Kicking off my personal 2020 Short Story Challenge, the tagged story by Flannery O'Connor was really quite good. I hadn't read O'Connor since college days and I was reminded how wonderfully gothic her writing is. This story was the first short story of the year; I plan to read a minimum of 25 and I've already read 3 💪 •

I'd heard a lot about this book (both good and bad) so I had no idea what to expect when I started it. It's not my preferred genre, but I've been slowly trying to expand my comfort zone - a little dystopian here, a little sci-fi there - and while it wasn't my favorite book so far this year, there's no denying that I did enjoy it. Some beautiful prose, some vivid (nightmarish) descriptions and an engaging story made this one a pick for me.

Louise That‘s a kind of Magritte-esque cover! Like she‘s coming uncoiled. 1w
BookDragonNotWorm @Louise That enchanting cover is what made me read the book! 1w
Louise Ah, so sometimes one CAN judge a book by its cover! 😆 1w
BookDragonNotWorm @Louise 😂 I'll just a book by every thing I can - it's the only way I'll ever even hope to be able to conquer my TBR list (and that's only IF I somehow end up immortal!)!!! Sigh. #goals 1w
Louise Conquering a TBR list is a thing? Hmmm. 1w

Don't think I'll get very far with this one this month; too focused elsewhere and I don't read much romance
