I‘m participating in an ABC book challenge over on Instagram and thought I might as well share my photos here as well, I‘m not sure if my bookshelves will contain a book that begins with every letter of the alphabet - time will tell!

This was one of my absolute favourite reads of 2018 - it‘s sadly underrated!

Just signed up! And guess what, you guys? @suvata has added categories! I‘m pumped to be signed up for the biography/memoir group. I‘ve got some (hopefully great) memoirs in my stacks I‘ve been meaning to get to. 🎉 #LMPBC

suvata I‘m glad you like the idea of having genres. This is the first time we are trying this. After this round we will take a load on walkway works better for y‘all. Enjoy! 4mo
Libby1 I‘ve just signed up in the UK group! Thanks for the info, @Hooked_on_books and for organising this, @suvata . 4mo
Hooked_on_books @Libby1 You‘re welcome! Hope you love it. I‘ve really enjoyed my rounds thus far. 4mo

arubabookwoman I like the idea of categories. Unfortunately, by the time I got onto Litsy late today the only categories left were ones I had no interest in. I'm really disappointed to not be participating in this round of LMPBC! @suvata (edited) 4mo
Hooked_on_books @arubabookwoman That would be a disappointment for sure. I would suggest that if certain categories aren‘t as popular, perhaps they could be changed up to anything and/or a different category. Then you could join in. @suvata 4mo
suvata @Hooked_on_books @arubabookwoman Let‘s wait until closer to the middle of the month and see if any of the groups are empty. That‘s when I would make a decision about opening up a second group in the same genre. (edited) 4mo
arubabookwoman I would love a chance for Classics, International, Literary, Nonfiction, or Biography/Memoir. Regardless of whether that‘s possible, I do want to thank you for all your work in setting this up and keeping it running smoothly-it‘s a great experience! @suvata 4mo

Recently, I tried to convince a room full of people to read these books. Mixed results. I think I also got talked into reading Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club and revisiting Jasper Fforde...

Lillie I have The Binding on my tbr list. Looking forward to it! 6mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Lillie, one of the best books I‘ve read this year! 6mo
Lillie @thegirlwiththelibrarybag good to know!! Thanks 😁 Need to put it on hold at the library. 6mo

What's your favorite Shakespearean work? One of my favorites is Macbeth! How could it not be with wonderfully dark (albeit beautiful) lines like "Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires." ✨?✨

This is a short book, 150 pages, but it is anything but a quick read. Every little section requires contemplation. The author writes from the perspective of an octogenarian looking back on what she has learned from her life, and wow, is she wise. I wouldn‘t have heard about it but for my boyfriend, who read an article in which a man cited this book as one of his top 10 books of all time. I can‘t wait for him to read it too, so we can discuss it!

This is a book not to be read fast, because every section—even the little blurbs—is thought-provoking.

I never seem to enjoy the genre of biography as much as I think I'm going to (I've realized memoir and autobiography both appeal to me more for whatever reason). But I quite liked this, at least as much as I have other biographies of historical #LGBTQ people. I knew very little of her going into this and thought Lorraine was a complex, fascinating artist who fought against many different forms of social injustice from the 40s - early 60s.

SW-T She was a fascinating woman. 10mo
