Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: Which authors drive you a bit crazy with having to wait for the next book to come out? 😆 #BookTalk

MelissaSue81 Well, I started hand typing Fredrik Backman's newest into google translate last week since I can't wait for the English version to come out. :) I gave up after a page though.. way too much work. It would probably be quicker to learn swedish.

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: How often do you find that you‘ve drifted from what you‘re reading/listening to, and you have to wind up re-reading the passage again? 😆 #BookTalk

megnews I‘m really bad for that with audiobooks. Happens occasionally with print books. 1d
Mdargusch Daily but especially when I read in bed. 1d
wanderinglynn Depends on whether I‘m enjoying the book, where I am, and how tired I am. If I‘m loving the book, am someplace quiet/home, and am not too tired, I rarely have to reread. 1d
See All 16 Comments
booksandsympathy If I'm stressed I find I do this a lot. It's just harder for me to focus. Also if I'm really tired. 1d
GardenJess More if it‘s an audiobook, and more when tired. 1d
unique Depends on the environment. 1d
Lizpixie If I‘m tired or distracted, or if I‘m having a bad health day. I have to admit that audiobooks are the worst for this, if I‘m in bed it‘s like I‘m programmed to fall asleep when someone reads to me, then I have to rewind when I wake up!😴 1d
bookseller_cate Far more often that I would like to admit, especially with the short story I‘m currently on. 1d
Butterfinger Only when I have troubles on my mind. I try to read so I won't dwell and I'll be on the same sentence after an hour of reading. It is truly frustrating. 1d
Sbk89 Quite often! Something it would be because my mind is elsewhere, or it‘s because I‘m pondering over the previous paragraph. (edited) 1d
tournevis Audio-books? All the time. I fall asleep if one reads to me. Every time. As for reading, if I'm nodding off, it's time for a break or bed. 1d
DrexEdit All the time with audiobooks. I definitely have not found my groove there. 1d
JacqMac If I‘m home alone, I‘m ok. But my family. They are forever distracting me. When I was younger I could block out everything when I was reading. Having kids has ruined me. Lol 1d
Billypar Agreed with others about audiobooks, but a decent amount with print too. I often find I'm following the plot fine, but when I go back and re-read sections I realize I've skipped sentences without realizing. This is different than when I zone out completely and have to go back. I think I'm doing ok, but if I test myself and re-read, not so much 🤷 1d
twohectobooks It really depends on the book. Whether I decide to go back and reread really depends on the book as well. If I‘m not that into it, I just keep reading. 22h
LapReader I think it is why I am such a slow reader. 21h

3/3. Finally the religion section. I wanted to get major religions in, from the Eastern faiths to atheism, which rejects religion but is involved in theological debates. If he makes it through all of 1-3‘s readings, he gets some kind of merit badge or a big box of cookies or something. 😂👏🏻

2/3. All of these subjects he‘s asking about are quite broad, to say the least, lol. So, I‘ve recommended to him general surveys and some of the most pivotal material in philosophy. As for history, well, that‘s huge 😆! Broad surveys it is, so he gets the entire world‘s history through ~1500, and then bits and pieces thereafter, with a focus on his own country of America, touching on many world events 1700s-2010.

#LitsyLovesLibraries

rwmg TBH I wouldn't recommend Hume: A Very Short Introduction. It's based on a series of lectures Ayer gave expounding his views on Hume rather than an introduction to Hume.
2d
MrBook @rwmg That‘s totally fine 😊, I think 10 librarians would offer 10 different lists, lol. Besides a couple of Hume‘s actual works, it was this or the Hume installment in the “in 90 Minutes” series, which is a meh series to me. 🙈 2d

1/3. Okay, so here‘s my latest Readers Advisory response. Patron is entering the university in town. Wants a basic general introduction to political theory, philosophy, history, and religion. Which books should he start with? (I also offered podcasts for him too as a bonus.) Some books we have, some we don‘t. These books assert a smattering of major political philosophies across the spectrum, from dictatorship to anarchism.

Time for the bookish discussion question is the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: How often do others ask you for book recommendations? For me, I‘d say maybe at least once every couple weeks. Being a Readers‘ Advisory librarian, most such requests come to me here. In fact, I just did one for a local college student Friday and today—would you like me to share my recs for him with you? #BookTalk

TheSpineView One or two times a month. Mainly at the office but also friends and family members. 2d

Linear Never, I mean. Its more like people know I read so their always trying to give me recommendations. I'm the friend who reads, feed her a book lol. 2d
TheLudicReader Constantly. Loads of students ask and many of my friends, too. I used to talk about books on CBC radio...I love to offer suggestions, but strangely I don't like it when people tell me what to read. Weird. 2d
Dyslexicon13 I usually don‘t. I have an odd taste in books and most people don‘t recommend anything I would like. I however recommend books for other people to read all the time and they typically enjoy my suggestions. 2d
rwmg People don't. I'm with @Linear . Oh look, it's a book. Give it to Robert. 2d
tournevis For academic books, weekly. I also write reviews often in academic journals. For fiction, it's common, but not as often. People know I'm a reader, but they also know I like really weird books. 2d

TheLibrarian Yes! Except ours has had the filter needs changed light on for awhile so it makes me hesitant to use the fountain ☹️ 2d
Linear I love these because you don't have to worry about germs as much as you do from regular fountains. I mean, when you drink from one, the water doesnt all get in your mouth, it usually sloshes back into the fountain and sometimes on the spout. So I dont use fountains in public 2d

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: Which films have improved in some way upon the book they‘ve adapted? #BookTalk

vivastory It's a series, not a film but Killing Eve is leaps and bounds better than somewhat standard source material 3d
vivastory I also don't think this one is better than the book, but I think it's as good as the book (which is very rare) 3d
Emilymdxn I think Brokeback Mountain did a lot more with the concept than the original story - I absolutely adore the story, but it‘s so short and a longer movie was able to flesh it out more, I love them both but prefer the film 3d
See All 16 Comments
GloVerdino A Simple Favor - the movie actually added some humor and made Anna Kendrick‘s character less annoying 3d
Beatlefan129 It was very true to the book, but I think the movie was so perfectly cast 3d
Billypar Jurassic Park: I read it as a teenager before seeing the movie, the first book I had both read and seen the adaptation. At the time, I objected to every deviation from the book: it was only much later that I realized, for all of the positives of the book, the screenwriters envisioned more memorable characters than Crichton's, who were a little stiff. 3d
Crazeedi I don't really watch or go to very many movies so I can't answer 3d
BookPixie How to Train Your Dragon, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and Fight Club 3d
BookishJess Silver Linings Playbook. The only case I know of where I enjoyed the movie significantly more than the book. They went a bit deeper into the characters than the book did I felt. 3d
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego This movie had a far better ending. The book left me so unsatisfied. 3d
Geeklet Everything about Children of Men the movie is superior to the book. I don‘t remember much about the book except for this crushing disappointment because it was the first time I encountered a book I liked less than the film. 3d
Samplergal I agree with Brokeback Mountain. It was expanded to give the viewer a much more dramatic and sad story. 3d
bookseller_cate The Prestige — they (wisely) ditched the framing story and increased the flamboyance and suspense to a level that did the plot justice. 3d
TheLudicReader The Kissing Booth was far superior to its source material, which was virtually unreadable. 3d
tournevis Princess Bride. Les tables tournantes (the book is so bad!). There's more, but it doesn't come to kind 3d

Drood: A Novel | Dan Simmons

Sorry I‘ve been MIA over the last few days! I‘m doing 2 big things: first, getting some projects ready to roll within the next couple months *finally*; second, I‘m working on my book club reads. This is the clunker I need done in a week, and I‘m really enjoying it.

Based on actual biographical events, it explores the still-unsolved mystery of Charles Dickens‘s dark final days, and what came to be the world‘s first great mystery masterpiece! 😁

DivineDiana It‘s a chunkster, but it sounds fascinating! 4d
Ruthiella I really enjoyed this book! It was pretty creepy and satisfying as a fan of both Dickens and Collins.😀 4d
Aloisi_tribe Dan Simmons is one of my favorite authors and Drood was the first book of his that I read. He‘s such a great writer for evoking feeling with his words. If you enjoy Drood, give The Terror a try. His writing about being on board the ship and stuck in the ice make you feel claustrophobic and isolated and terrorized at the same time. 4d

ginganinja We have a lot of stuff at ours as well (although yours seems to have a lot more), but the adult stuff seems to be more geared toward retired folks and the kids stuff to stay at home parents because it's mostly all during the day. I really wish they did more at night. 1w
Cortg ALL THE TIME! I have personally done 76 programs this year. Chess club is going on tonight. Tomorrow we are having 2 sets of Tape Town for the littles (morning and afternoon) and then Mixed Media for adults in the evening & D20 for teens Friday is a K-Pop fan fest for teens, and Saturday finishes out the week with Build and Play (Legos.) Last month our branch alone had over 60 programs! (edited) 1w
mdm139 So many events - daily story time for kids (each day is geared to a different age range) weekly movies, teen tuesday, puppet shows and theater and magic shows, even mini festivals, book clubs and sales, Zumba, neighborhood watch and police meetings. Craft classes, music appreciation club, adult story time (person reads while you eat sack lunch). Our library system won a big award from Michele Obama few years ago for good reason 1w
RaimeyGallant They do have different series. I need to get involved! 1w
Susanita Book clubs, kindergarten prep, middle school prep, ukulele classes... One branch lends tools and gives DIY classes. 1w
Chelsea.Poole We do several things mentioned. And Acoustic Night at the Library. It's great 😊 1w
kspenmoll All kinds of activities for all ages! Love our library! 7d
kezzlou85 Yep it always has stuff going on. They run lots of kids clubs, adult groups, summer reading challenge, getting back to work groups, Lego groups. 7d
