Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: I‘m making the long drive out to western PA today. Of course I have an audio book and podcasts to keep me company 😊🤓. Do you keep the same company when you go on a long drive? Any kinds of books and podcasts in particular? #BookTalk

BibliophileLibrarian Absolutely! I drive from Elizabeth to Pittsburgh every day, about 45-60 minute drive. Some podcasts I listen to are: What Should I Read Next?; Book Riot; Simple Show; Vibrant Happy Women; Mining Poldark; The Productive Woman; and One Great Book. And then I listen to my audiobooks as well! 1h
TheSpineView Yes! Drives my husband crazy that I don't want to bbbbc talk the whole trip!😋 59m
Sharpeipup Yes...unless it‘s time for Christmas music 56m
Crazeedi Where to in western PA? That's where I live!!😊 47m
Soubhiville Oh yes, only audiobooks though. 29m

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: What do you do when someone gifts you a book that you really don‘t want to read? #BookTalk

GrilledCheeseSamurai Reeeeeeeeeeegift! 👀🤷🏼‍♂️😜 1d
Carolyn11215 I give it to our library to sell in their shop, which supports library. :) 1d

JacqMac Little free library. 1d
LibrarianRyan Regift it. 1d
BillBlume One birthday, my overly conservative parents got me an awful book called Agents of Babylon. The writing in the book was beyond pathetic. I took it to Barnes & Noble and traded it in for another book (they‘ll give you store credit if you don‘t have a receipt. The gamble is that it will be for whatever the lowest price it‘s been sold at their store). I used the refund towards buying The Hate U Give in hardback. 1d
BethM Regift 1d
twohectobooks I‘m gifted actual books so rarely that I usually do read them. Haven‘t had to re-examine this policy yet haha 1d
Emilymdxn If I‘m given a book in good faith by a person I like and I know they wanted me to like it I do read and keep them, I try to enjoy them for what they tell me about the person who gifted them to me even if I don‘t love the book. If someone gifts me a book I already read and didn‘t like I would keep it on my shelves but not feel I had to read it a second time 1d
sharread I buy myself books I don't want to read because of the awesome cover. 🤣🎃👻 1d
JulietBooks I try to stay open minded. 1d
Crazeedi I check to see if my daughter is interested as we have different tastes, if not I'll regift or donate to library 23h
Billypar Luckily this only happened once when my dad gifted me The Millionaire Next Door when I was in high school. It was never mentioned again, and if I give books to others, I make a point of never asking them about it later ☺ 23h
ravenlee I give them a fair try (at some point) and then they usually go to the used book store. I kept one from my MIL for YEARS after reading it and hating it, then I figured if she was grading me I‘d already passed and sold it. 22h
xicanti Since I became an adult I‘ve always at least tried to read gifts, even if I‘m not super drawn to the title at first glance. When I was a teenager, though, things were different. Everyone knew I loved to read, and none of them really understood or accepted that I quit reading kids‘ books when I was twelve. (YA wasn‘t much of a thing back then.) I basically sulked whenever yet another well-meaning person gave a book that was way too young for me. 22h
TheHeartlandBookFairy Usually it lands on my epic TBR stack for a while (unless it was already on my wish list). eventually I'll get to it and if I'm not riveted by the book, I'll at least try to give it 10 or 15 minutes a night before settling in with the book I really want to read lol 😂 it takes longer to get through a book this way but, sometimes it ends up being a book that I really enjoy and it was worth the effort. Sometimes not. 🤷 22h
rwmg If somebody insists on my taking a book I don't really want, I put it on the TBR shelf and then eventually find myself in the mood to at least try. I've often been pleasantly surprised. I've only ever decided I am never going to read something and passed it on. As the donor had left the country I felt safe enough. 22h
Kimberlone I will just add it to my shelf. Sometimes I will end up reading it later. If I don‘t, then eventually it goes to be traded in at the used book store. Honestly I don‘t get gifted books that often though so I can‘t say it‘s been a big problem 21h

Saw this today. It was good! Deep psychological suspense. Not nearly as violent as so many other films that have been coming out. Interesting approach to the Batman mythology. I hear Phoenix wants to do a sequel. I‘d definitely watch it.

Have you seen this film?! 🎞

Today‘s author spotlight: Clive Barker! The 67-year-old was born in Liverpool, UK. He was the executive producer for the movie “Gods & Monsters”. You may know he created the Hellraiser franchise, but did you know he also created the Candyman one? Besides being a prolific author, he‘s also a prolific artist, with paintings having been shown in #NYC. He‘s been happily with his partner, Johnny Raymond Jr., since 2009. #AuthorPotpourri #TheMoreYouKnow

Hey Litsy! Our wonderful and resourceful @Andrew65 has come up with a fabulous idea for #24B4Monday this month. For those of you who are not taking part in the #Scarathlon, you can sponsor a team! For the weekend of the readathon, you‘ll be able to gain 5 points PER HOUR that you read which then goes to the team you are sponsoring! Sign up with a comment below!

TheReadingMermaid @sharread so what will happen is the read-a-thon starts on Thursday night at midnight and runs until Sunday night at midnight. You will keep track of the hours that you read and gained five points per hour to the team that you are sponsoring. We encourage people to post updates of their reading progress and times throughout the read-a-thon. A stopwatch function on your phone is very handy for this. 3h
TheReadingMermaid @sharread oh and the read-a-thon is from the 25th to the 27th 3h

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: How does a book‘s popularity influence your decision about reading it? #BookTalk

Bookwormjillk I sometimes put off reading them because I‘m afraid they won‘t live up to the hype 3d
Chrissyreadit It does not, necessarily influence- unless people with similar taste to mine are raving about it. Then I want it. 3d
Sace I have similar thoughts to @Bookwormjillk I'm also a curmudgeon and tend to avoid things that everyone is raving about. 3d
See All 16 Comments
LauraJ It depends on who is hot for the book. I generally trust my favorite Littens. (edited) 3d
OrangeMooseReads It might get the book on my list if it seems interesting but it doesn‘t make me read it any sooner. 3d
Amiable Not at all. I read what I want, not what others like. 3d
DGRachel Like @OrangeMooseReads hype might put a book on my TBR list, but it‘s not going to get me to read it any faster. I‘m too much of a mood reader for that. 3d
BethM It probably makes me less inclined to read it 😂 3d
Caffeinated_Reader Not usually. I try not to read reviews or any type of book info because I like to go in not knowing much and not knowing what to expect. 3d
IamIamIam I don't trust popular opinion too much and I'm almost always disappointed by the hyped up books. I'll stick to my weird eclectic tastes!!! 3d
sharread None, I prefer inde authors. 👍 3d
Reecaspieces Not usually 3d
bookaholic1 I read the back of the book and judge it myself, not from anyone's opinion 3d
Peddler410 Unless the book is one I am anticipating, I let popular books wait. If it‘s an author I love, I will track down a copy ASAP. If it‘s not on my radar, I let the buzz die down — otherwise, I am usually disappointed. 3d
rwmg Only if it sounds like the sort of thing I might like anyway and is popular amongst people whose taste I trust. I've got too many series and genres to catch up with as it is. I've re-read too many hyped books after the hype has died down and wondered why they caught so much attention. 3d
Reviewsbylola I am much more apt to read a book that I‘ve seen around a lot, but only if it‘s a book I think I‘d like or by an author I know. 3d

The Snow Child | Eowyn Ivey
post image

Today‘s author spotlight: Eowyn Ivey! The 46-year-old Alaska resident and mother was named by her mother after the character in The Lord of the Rings. She grew up in the Alaskan wilderness, where her family grew and hunted their food. She was a newspaper reporter before becoming a bookseller. She was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for the tagged book. She has two published novels so far. #AuthorPotpourri #TheMoreYouKnow

Jess She is fantastic. Thanks for the short bio. 3d
Kimberlone Fun fact: The jacket she is wearing is made by Copper River Fleece, which is a very popular local clothing company based in Cordova, AK! If you ever come to AK you will see definitely see locals wearing this brand all over the place. 3d

Kimberlone @MrBook I live in Anchorage, which is the main city in the state. It would be amazing to meet another litten IRL someday! 3d

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: You are placed in charge of a book club, and you can only pick books one of two ways: do you pick books you‘ve already read, or do you pick books you haven‘t read? #BookTalk

CrowCAH Books I‘ve read, so I can be knowledgeable about the content. Would put less stress on me not to have to quickly read and finish the book before the group discussion. 5d
TheSpineView Books I have not read. 5d
Sarahreadstoomuch I run a book club at my library and I ask members to vote for our books for the year. However, I do make the list they vote from, and while it‘s probably 80% books I haven‘t read, I‘ll stick in a few that I have so that I can catch a break sometimes. Still need to skim it again though - discussions can get pretty in depth! 5d
See All 8 Comments
bookaholic1 Books I haven't read, but if someone suggests that they wanted to read one I have already read, I wouldn't stop that from happening 5d
Prairiegirl_reading I‘ve been in my book club for many years and we always choose our books for the year in September. Everyone brings their suggestions that they preferably haven‘t read, we make a master list and pick from there. We ask that people suggest books they haven‘t read so that people aren‘t hurt by someone who hates a book they love. If we all start off with curiosity then hopefully no one gets upset. 5d
DGRachel If those are my only two choices, then books I haven‘t read because while I know that no book works for all people, it sucks if the entire group hates a book you love. 5d
Samplergal Books I‘ve read and know can be a great discussion book. Some books that are great, may not have a lot to offer a book discussion. It‘s how I run mine and have been successful. Even when the participants don‘t like the book, a lively discussion is had! 5d
rwmg When my book club started the rule was books nobody had read, but as the number of members increased that proved impractical. We take it in turns to choose a book. Each of the original members still holds to the rule of a book he/she hasn't read before but the newer members tend to choose a favourite for their first book till they get the idea. 5d

#NobelPrize for Literature winner announced! I haven‘t heard of either author before 🙈. What do you think of the recipients‘ works? https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wsj.com/amp/articles/nobel-prizes-in-literature...

#LitsyNewsNetwork #LNN #TheMoreYouKnow

ljuliel I‘ve never heard of either one. I think someone needs to invent a Chastity Belt for men that works a bit like those Shock Collars for dogs. Maybe that‘d teach them to keep their danged pants on. It seems that scandals are bleeding over into every area anymore. That‘s why I don‘t watch the news. Ignorance is Bliss. Too depressing. 6d

ljuliel Nice to see a company with a sense of humor. I wonder how many people buy it but never read the tag ? I probably wouldn‘t. I‘ve never read tags on any of my rugs. 6d

Tonight was a laugh-filled, delightful meeting of The #OmnivorousReadersBookClub! This book club works on themes, and this month‘s theme was Food. So, I chose this one, and, my, what a fantastic book this is! One of my all-time favorite non-fiction reads! Have you read it?! Excellent audio.

jb72 I love nonfiction books especially about food. Going on my TBR. 7d
SW-T Yes! This is one of my favorites, fiction or nonfiction 😊 7d
Lcsmcat Cool! Stacked. 7d
Tex2Flo I love the idea of themed reads for bookclub! What other themes have you all followed? 6d

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: If you could be a superhero, which superpower would you have, what would be your token weapon, and what would your uniform look like? #BookTalk

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Teleportation....and a book (of course!)😉🦸‍♀️ 1w
LauraJ I‘d be The Introvert! My super power would be to shut up people holding loud cell phone conversations so the rest of us can read in peace. 1w
tournevis I'd be Faith. 1w
Slajaunie I would have super intelligence and be able to fly. I would have a flyswatter as a weapon (annoying people get swatted). My costume would be a short dress with thigh high boots. Black and purple! (edited) 7d
