Is anyone interested in joining @DuckOfDoom in a #buddyread of this collection of novellas by Ursula LeGuin? If so see DuckofDoom's feed and comment in the post. Hope you can join us.

Would anyone care for a #buddyread of this chunkster, maybe followed by the Unreal and the Real at the start of next year? I think Novellas and Short Stories are great for a buddyread, as stories are concluded fast, but the books are daunting!

llwheeler I'd be interested 1mo
TheSpineView I am.👍 1mo
DuckOfDoom @llwheeler @TheSpineView Great! Let's see if some others want to join us! Any cool hashtag suggestions? 1mo

Saw this question on fb and thought I'd answer here cause Litsy is way better than fb.

Hard question! I'd prob give a different answer every day. Today I'm going with:
1. Hobbit & LotR, yeah I'm counting those as one
2. Complete Jane Austen
3. The biggest LeGuin collection I could find

Like how I totally cheated and picked more than 3 books? What would you pick!?

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego That is a very hard question, and I agree that my answer would change every time. At this exact moment I'd say... 1. The Fifth Season 2. The Wolf of the Plains 3. And an Atlas . These are purely emotional choices. 😊 13mo
llwheeler @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Ooh great picks! Love the atlas choice. I still haven't read Fifth Season, it's been on my list for a while! Hadn't heard of Wolf of the Plains before but it sounds really neat, might have to check it out ☺ 13mo
CouronneDhiver Oh wow... that‘s a hard one! I have no idea 😬 13mo
sprainedbrain I love your cheating! This would be very hard, but today I think I would choose Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre, and The Song of Achilles. 🤗 13mo
llwheeler @sprainedbrain nice picks! If i picked just one Austen it would have to be P&P. And ❤ Song of Achilles. Jane Eyre is still tbr for me--definitely want to get to it soon! 13mo

Unwinding from a late night of travel on my father in law‘s top floor patio in North Vancouver. It‘s a little chilly but exactly what I needed today. 😴📖

BookishTrish You‘re in North Van! 1y

Still honeymooning, but onto our final leg in Vancouver. Or we will be once the ferry lands. Not loving the late night ferry, but some tea and Le Guin should take care of that.

Bronte_Chintz I want to love LeGuin, I tried when I was a lot younger and never got far with one book so kind of put her aside. I‘ve just bought the first tales of Earthsea in one volume to try and give her a go again. Are you a LeGuin lover? 1y
Emilymdxn I haven‘t read as much by LeGuin as I should. I always think I must make time for more but then the time never seems to come around, hope you‘re enjoying it 💖💖💖 1y
Jabberwocky @Bronte_Chintz so I never liked the earthsea series even though I usually love that kind of story. I would highly highly recommend starting with the left hand of darkness. I was blown away by it and would now say I‘m a lover and am thoroughly enjoying her work. @Emilymdxn I would highly recommend this collection of short stories. Might work out better for you. 1y
Bronte_Chintz @Jabberwocky Maybe I‘ll get that one to start with then! Thanks! She‘s a writer I really want to love if that makes sense? 1y

#TBRtemptation post! This one is a two-fer. The queen of sci fi & fantasy has 2 collections out that I knew nothing about! Both seem to be made to go with one another, how cool is that?! Both are award-winning, of course, & thick with interesting tales I briefly glimpsed. Oh, I'll be getting both soon enough, you can bet your bread & butter on that 😉👍🏻. If you could only get one for now, which would you get? #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

TNbooklover66 Those covers are gorgeous. Those are going on my Christmas list. 📚🎄⛄️ 3y
Marchpane So hard to choose! But I think I'd go for the short stories over the novellas 😊 3y
Chachic I would totally get both because she's an amazing author. But then again, I'm not much of a short story reader. 3y

bouquinista I just got The Found and the Lost! Picked that one b/c it has "Vaster Than Empires and More Slow" in it, which I wanted to read again. Otherwise I'd probably go with the short stories too. ? 3y
valeriegeary Sigh. These covers!! They are breathtaking! 3y
bookishnerd I really want these! 3y
MrBook @TNbooklover66 @valeriegeary Aren't they 😁?! @Marchpane At least there's options 😉👍🏻. @Chachic 😁👏🏻! @bouquinista 😆😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻! 3y

I don't read much science fiction, but I like Ursula Le Guin. Excited but a bit intimidated by the size of this.

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! Two GIANT editions of work by living legend Ursula K. Le Guin. So many science fiction and fantasy authors owe a lot to her. If you‘ve never read her before, these are a great place to start, and if you‘re a big fan, then WOOHOO! You now have a whole kittenton of her collected work in one place! She is so awesome. 💕

Seshat Want! 3y
silverlocusts I just about cried when they showed up in my Kindle. New Atwood AND Le Guin in the same month gives me renewed hope in humanity. 3y
Bluestocking Wrinkle in Time is my favorite childhood book, and one I still reread every year. Meg is one badass girl! 3y

hlgreenfield I need to get this! I loooove scifi but for some reason have never read any of her books! 3y
jveezer One of my favorite writers. Love her work. 3y
jveezer Gah! There's a slipcased box set with both the book of short stories and the novellas. I might have to wait for that since of course I want both books...ouch, right in the wallet. 3y
