Our topic for the December meeting of #LitsyATXReadersSociety is Banned Books. While googling to see if I have any sitting on my TBR, I came across this cool article and thought some of you might be interested.

AmyG I will never understand why these are banned. And I am proud of myself for having read many of them. 17h
Soubhiville @AmyG I know, a lot of them are so silly! And I‘m glad to have read many of them as well. 17h
UwannaPublishme 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 15h
ValerieAndBooks Good list! While there‘s several I‘ve read, it reminds me there‘s still more yet to read! 8h

These were the books chosen by #LitsyATXReadersSociety for our November topic, “Something you‘ve been meaning to read.” Quite a varied range!

Next meeting is Dec 21st, topic is Banned or Controversial books. We‘re going to meet in the cafe and do a cookie swap. I‘ll post more about it in Slack.

Today‘s #LitsyATXReadersSociety was a cozy smaller group. Our topic was “something you‘ve been meaning to read”, which led to a really fun and varied selection! Our library has so many interesting spots for photos!

Got my book nerd on with my fab #litsyatxreaderssociety book club (and a couple friends from my other book club) today. We learned how to make a notebook/journal and it was really cool to not only make a book - but to have it turn out so well (will post pics of the finished books in another post). Here‘s to many more book club field trips in the future! 💜📚😃

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.

Soubhiville @Cinfhen it‘s lovely! I‘m hoping we‘ll get the new shelves assembled this weekend, then I‘ll post library photos. Most of the other important things are unpacked. 😊 2w
Soubhiville @Eyelit @marixa awesome! Hope you can make it Marisa. 2w

Pickpick

Merricat and her sister Constance live a quiet, idyllic life with their infirm uncle Julian in a stately mansion at the edge of a village, which they tend to avoid as everyone shuns and hates them. Well maybe it‘s because six years ago the sisters‘ parents, brother, and aunt died of arsenic poisoning. I absolutely loved this gothic mystery that creeps up on the reader as slowly and stealthily as a cat on the prowl. Charming and subversive. 🖤☠️

alysonwrites And my ebook copy doesn‘t have a full-size image of the cover, so I designed a fake cover as a stand-in. It was a real chore for graphic design geek me. Not. 😉 (edited) 2w
alysonwrites This was my #somethingspooky October pick for #LitsyATXReadersSociety. (edited) 2w

One of the best parts of #TXBookFest2019 is sharing book love and nerdiness with friends! I should have gotten pics with the other #LitsyATXReadersSociety gals, but here‘s one of me and @Eyelit from the end of the day yesterday just before we left.

Here are the books #LitsyATXReadersSociety chose for this month‘s theme of “something spooky”. We had a little bit of everything from horror to suspense to bizarre and nonfiction haunting debunking. Fun topic!

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.
