#weekendreads @rachelsbrittain
1️⃣ Tagged and The Way of All Flesh. About a hundred pages to go in each.
2️⃣ Both, but slight preference for mornings. Starting the day with reading is A+.
3️⃣ Not really any? I think I recently followed Laila Lalami as a goodreads author, and I‘m a faithful reader of Charlie Stross‘s blog but that‘s about it. Wish more authors were on Litsy!

I didn't want to go back. Not the first time. I didn't think my heart could stand it. But the aeroplane is a wonderful thing. You are still in one place when you arrive at the other. The aeroplane is faster than the heart. You arrive quickly and you leave quickly. You don't grieve too much.

The Way of All Flesh | SAMUEL BUTLER
post image

I haven‘t had as much reading time as usual on the past few weekends because I‘ve been engaged in a big organizing project (as is evident in the background of this photo). Because of this I feel like I‘ve been reading both of these books for about a hundred years. Hope to make some progress this afternoon (on the books and the organizing)!

Yesterday‘s #libraryhaul

I‘m hoping to read the top two and review them on my blog. The bottom is non-fiction that I plan to read to add further context to my #bookclub book, The Moor‘s Account.

The Way of All Flesh | SAMUEL BUTLER
post image

...He did not say smart things himself and did not want other people to say them. Besides they talked about music, and he hated music, or pictures, and he hated pictures, or books, and except the classics he hated books; and then sometimes he was wanted to dance with them, and he did not know how to dance, and did not want to know.

(The fact that I can relate to this attitude may have something to do with the fact that I‘m still a spinster.)

University of Saskatchewan - Murray Library | Saskatoon, SK, Canada (Library)
post image

Once or twice a year I visit the university library to get my hands on things the public library doesn‘t have (I‘m aware of interlibrary loans but haven‘t had much need to use them yet). I‘m always struck by just how much material is in this library.

twohectobooks Also yikes this photo is crooked 1w
Lucy_Anywhere I loved my university's library - you could get lost for days in there! And you'd find done really, really niche books 😂 1w
twohectobooks @Lucy_Anywhere I was going to say “obscure” but “niche” is so much more accurate! My degree is in engineering, and I only took one book out of the engineering library throughout my entire degree because the online resources were much more relevant. I did have some electives that brought me into the main library though and I always loved it. 1w

#quotsynov19 #bonfire
For some reason, the sight of snow descending on fire always makes me think of the ancient world—legionaries in sheepskin warming themselves at a brazier; mountain altars where offerings glow between wintry pillars; centaurs with torches cantering beside a frozen sea—scattered, uncoordinated shapes from a fabulous past, infinitely removed from life; & yet bringing with them memories of things real and imagined.

Kimberlone I love this quote! There is something about snow that makes the surroundings feel otherworldly. It can cover and hide things that are unseemly or remind you of the present world 2w

#litsyquestionnaire No one asked me but I have a lot of thoughts about this so I‘m doing it anyway. Hope it doesn‘t end up TOO long.
1️⃣ The focus on books and book talk rather than aesthetics or average ratings or how many people are reading a certain book.
2️⃣ Any litsy post that‘s hashtagged like an instagram post. Swaps (more on this later).
3️⃣ ▪️A method to sort/see only reviews OR blurbs OR quotes for a given book

⬇️MORE⬇️

twohectobooks 3️⃣ cont‘d ▪️a method to see my own posts about a book ▪️a fix for the fact the app crashes every time I create a new post (? I think I‘m the only one who has this issue) (edited) 2w
twohectobooks 4️⃣ so rarely! Between 1-5 times per week 2w
rubyslippersreads @twohectobooks My IPad and iPhone both crash when I create a new post. 😠 2w
See All 16 Comments
twohectobooks 5️⃣ ▪️Readathons - yes! If I don‘t have time I don‘t participate but love to see others enjoying themselves together ▪️Readalongs - yes! Same as previous ▪️Questionnaires - yes! Same as previous ▪️Swaps - so tbh this is one thing about litsy that kinda bugs me but there are so many swaps. I can‘t afford to participate and feel really uncomfortable giving out contact info and since I only use the app on my phone it‘s so hard to tune them out. 2w
twohectobooks @rubyslippersreads ah, so I‘m not the only one! I‘ve never seen anyone mention this issue before! 2w
twohectobooks 6️⃣ Besides my other suggestions, it just frankly needs to be easier to find other users (eg see who else likes similar books to you, is in your area, etc), interact with them (eg PM, threaded comments), and organize books. Making it easier to find posts again later would help as well. ⬇️MORE⬇️ 2w
twohectobooks To be frank as much as I love litsy (and I honestly do despite all my complaints above) I‘m pretty sure it‘s a dead app and I‘ve just been waiting for the announcement that it‘s been abandoned. There are so few active users (I‘m curious about the number) and authors, publishers, etc do not seem to be adopting the app, which is what it probably needs to be worth the developers‘ investment. Until that day comes, I‘ll continue hanging out here 🙁💛📒 2w
Samplergal Great ideas! 2w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Have you considered following more users? It‘s definitely not a “dead app.” I think @Liberty has approx 24,000 followers. 1w
ljuliel Thanks for your participation, and of course, you are welcome to do it. I originally posted this to anyone wanting to answer, so it‘s for the group. You brought up some valid points. I agree about the swaps. I‘ve done a couple in the past but won‘t do another. There are lots of kinks that need worked out in there. As for your post making the app crash, I‘m not sure what would cause that. I‘m not very tecchy , so I can‘t figure out those things. 1w
ljuliel And last but not least, I don‘t think Litsy is dead just yet. If we all post and respond to other‘s posts, we can keep it going and more active again. 🌟I don‘t think you have to follow thousands of people to keep it active. You couldn‘t keep up and post to that many 🌟. The key is to participate, reply to others, etc. you can meet new people that way, and slowly add friends as you find those with similar book tastes and personalities. 1w
twohectobooks @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I wonder how many of those 24000 are active users though? I follow or am followed by a lot of people who either never posted at all or haven‘t posted in multiple years. I‘m happy with the activity level on my feed, but for the app to feel vibrant and active it needs more users overall. 1w
twohectobooks @ljuliel I‘m glad others are more optimistic than I am! The way you describe is definitely how I use the app and find people to follow. I think the things that keep the user base small are what make this such a pleasant app to use—it‘s just too inconvenient to get on here and be a jerk lol. 1w
twohectobooks @ljuliel also thanks for starting this conversation! I actually just joined the Onward Litsy group on Facebook to see if a similar conversation was going on there. 1w
TheAromaofBooks I liked your thoughts on making it easier to find people to follow who have similar book-reading interests - when I first joined in May of this year, it was really difficult to decide who to follow or not. I love reading, but it would have been easier if there was any type of profile even “my top three genres I love to read“ or something! 1w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @twohectobooks I‘m not sure, I‘m very active with many members on Litsy. I‘m not sure what all the fuss is about 🤷🏼‍♀️ I cohost buddy reads, photo challenges, a huge pen pal group with over 130 members with @TheBookHippie and we are not seeing what has been mentioned. Look at @MrBook celebrating his 1000000 milestone!!! (Congratulations!) I don‘t understand the negativity... (edited) 1w

Have been trying to reintroduce morning reading into my routine but as you can see I am already on my phone instead. At least cuddles with Jacques are happening whether I‘m reading or scrolling.

I‘m the first person to post about this book on Litsy, which surprises me! I‘m 100ish pages in and it‘s a lot of fun so far!

I don‘t think I‘ve ever been so devastated by a book as I was at the end of this one. I‘m still thinking about it weeks later. I can‘t stop telling people about it either-it was so good and yet I hesitate to recommend it. It‘s about the titular bastard, a young girl named Bone who is growing up amid a rough but mostly loving extended family, tormented by an abusive stepfather. An extremely tough read but a very very good book.

This is way up high on my #modernlibrarytop100 list but is mostly pure fun. Claudius is a fun and not completely reliable narrator of his own rise to the position of Roman emperor. I think at its core it wants to make the reader think about history, the people who populate it, and how their stories are told. I‘ll definitely be reading more Robert Graves.

Agnes Grey | Anne Bront

Not as good as Anne Brontë‘s other novel, but still solid and enjoyable to read. Agnes can sometimes be frustrating in her passivity, but I also realized that I have more in common with her than I do Jane Eyre (Catherine Earnshaw is in another class entirely) and so maybe this is just a little too real.

To the Lighthouse | Virginia Woolf
post image
Pickpick

I feel like this will be an unpopular opinion, but I didn‘t love this. My first time reading Woolf, and I certainly didn‘t hate it, either. She is so, so good at getting inside the thoughts and feelings of her characters. The brief section of “Time Passes” was my favourite by far. The issue I had was that everything felt so aimless that I couldn‘t really care about what was going on or what the characters were feeling. Maybe I just didn‘t get it.

twohectobooks Thanks @Curiouser_and_curiouser for reminding me I needed to post this review, and it still took three more days to get it done! Despite my lukewarm reaction I think it‘s well worth a read if you ever want to try again! 1mo

Was reading this with my sister and I ploughed right through it in a hurry and I don‘t think she‘s even finished it yet ie this won‘t be for everyone.
Ada Palmer is an historian and she‘s used her knowledge of the past as a foreign country to create a very foreign and intriguing future. My main complaint is that I wish this book was more of a complete package - NOTHING is really resolved at the end. But the sequel is on my shelf, ready to read.

I was really conflicted about whether I still wanted to read this after the allegations of Max Landis being a creep. Ultimately decided that I‘d read stuff by creeps before (mostly dead ones) so I‘d give it a shot.
It‘s fine. This is my 2nd superhero comic ever & I liked it well enough but ultimately I just didn‘t really connect with much of the material? I dunno.

A story about the author trying to figure out his role as a young Israeli soldier in the 1982 Lebanon War. I think I probably would‘ve had better luck watching the animated film, which I may still seek out, because once again the graphic medium just didn‘t do it for me.

And this is why I still read comics despite how often I‘m disappointed by them. This is a really excellent exploration of the author‘s experience growing up Chinese American that makes excellent use of the format.

Hey Littens, what do you do when you are stuck in a rut? Not a book rut, a life rut.

For the last several weeks I‘ve felt very listless and have barely accomplished anything that I would normally or that I want to do.

I suspect I‘m mostly just burnt out, but I need some suggestions for how I might snap out of it.

Samplergal I‘m no doctor or nurse, but make sure you‘re getting vitamins and iron in your diet. Also thyroid messes with it all. Other than this, I recommended visuals to help motivate, if that‘s a to do list and checking it off. Make them SMALL things so you‘ll feel good about it. ❤️. 3mo
TheKidUpstairs I second @Samplergal 's digestion of small, easy to do lists (even start the list with little things you've already done). Starting with those small things can really build a sense of accomplishment. 3mo
TheAromaofBooks Sometimes getting a little bit of exercise really helps me - just getting up and walking around the block. For some reason, moving my body seems to also help move my brain! 3mo
twohectobooks @Samplergal @TheKidUpstairs @TheAromaofBooks thank you all for the tips! I definitely make lots of lists and have been getting more exercise than usual. Just need to take a look at what I always do vs what I could do differently. 3mo

This is a pick because of content rather than execution. It‘s a collection of stories by various authors and artists of episodes involving indigenous people in Canada‘s past, present, and future. I found there was a marked difference in quality between the different stories, chiefly based on whether the writer had worked in the graphic medium before. I did learn a lot, though, and I think it was a worthy read.

An American Tragedy | Theodore Dreiser
post image
Mehso-so

This book is too long.

I‘d hoped Clyde Griffiths‘ story would be similar to Sister Carrie‘s and it does share my favourite characteristic of Dreiser‘s earlier novel: he‘s very very good at depicting characters who are deeply flawed in a non-judgemental way. Unfortunately, this is even more prone to wheel-spinning.

I found myself wishing I were reading Hemingway or James M. Cain‘s version of this story. #modernlibrarytop100

More ⬇️

twohectobooks The end is the strongest part; it‘s a shame that by the time I got to it I was so worn out by what came before that I just wanted to get everything over with. I‘m against capital punishment and the book is somewhat illustrative of my reasons why. (Also why women need access to abortion!) Clyde absolutely needs to be punished for his crime. He never takes responsibility for killing Roberta, just regrets how it‘s ended up for him. 3mo
twohectobooks And yeah, the title pretty much sums it up: this book is about Clyde, but it‘s really about him as a product of his environment. I just wish it had been a little (or a lot) tighter. 3mo
