#LMPBC Round 7 - #GroupL
@suvata @sprainedbrain @Chili @thebluestocking

Any ideas on what the missing books will be? Maybe they were already chosen and I missed the post. Just checking. No big hurry. We still have a couple weeks left.

Chili I‘m going with Invisible by Paul Auster 4d
suvata @Chili Cool. I will update the graphic. Good choice too. 4d
suvata Graphic has been updated 4d

Hi @Libby1 and @jhod ! As @suvata has emailed & posted on her page, are you happy to be a group of three for #lmpbc or do you want to wait a little longer to see if someone else signs up? If you want to wait, might I suggest the 19th October as a cut-off point? It would give us 12 days to sort the books out.

jhod Im happy with a group of 3 xx 2w
jhod But we could wait and see if we get a fourth abd if not continue as a 3? 2w
jenniferw88 @jhod @Libby1 yes, exactly. I personally think we should wait a bit, as it's still quite early in the month. X 2w
jhod 👍 2w
Libby1 I‘m happy to wait, too! I was perusing my bookcase this morning to come up with some options. 2w

#LMPBC ROUND 7 - WE‘RE FULL! WooHoo 🥳

Well, almost full. There is one spot left in the UK group. I have sent out an email to the three people in that group and it‘s up to you if you want to do it on a three-month rotation or wait until another person from the UK joins. After all, we have until November 1 to even start reading the book. This club fills up so quickly I wanted to get an early start this time. Thanks to everyone who signed up.

Lovesbooks87 Yay! Thanks for putting this together! 😀 2w
suvata @Lovesbooks87 you‘re welcome. I really love doing it. I can‘t believe this is seventh round already. 2w
Lovesbooks87 @suvata this round will be my 5th round and I have read some pretty amazing books that I would have never read without being in this postal book club! 2w
suvata @Lovesbooks87 That is exactly one of the reasons I wanted to put this club together — to expose people to books they wouldn‘t normally pick. I am a very avid reader yet every round I get surprised by books I‘ve never even heard of before. Glad you are enjoying it too. 2w

There are still openings in the following #LMPBC groups;
Group Q - Quick reads (short stories and novellas (1)
Group W - We‘ll read anything (1)
These groups are open for any book not by genre.

You can sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080444aead2ca0ff2-litsy7

Groups Y and Z only have three people. It‘s up to you if you want to get a fourth person or you just want to rotate amongst you three.

IvoryLunatic Ah, I wish there was still room in the memoirs. That‘s my fave genre. I‘m not sure about signing up for the any books categories that are open because I can‘t read thrillers and horror stories cause I‘m a wimp. 😂 2w
TheAromaofBooks @IvoryLunatic - you may be able to work with the other people in the group to agree to not do thrillers/horror. I know with the groups I've signed up with, we've each posted a few potential reads and given the other members a chance to let everyone know if they really love or hate an option. 2w

hes7 I just read The Right Swipe, but if that‘s what everyone else wants to read, I‘d be happy to reread it. The three others are all on my TBR, so any of them work for me. In fact, I was considering including a backlist of Mhairi McFarlane in my choices. 2w
Lovesbooks87 @hes7 I am fine with picking one of the other three. I wanted to make sure to pick something that no one has read. I have never read anything by Mhairi McFarlene but I have heard get things! 2w

#LMPBC UPDATE

Emails have been sent to everyone participating in Round 7. The email includes name, email address, postal address, and Litsy name for everyone in your group.

There were 9 groups that did not have four members. Information on those groups will be mailed as soon as the group is full. If it doesn‘t fill up, you‘ll have to wait until the next round to sign up.

Let me know if you would like me to change empty genre names.

collegecatlady I did not receive an email. Perhaps I entered my email incorrectly. I am in the horror group! 2w
collegecatlady On second thought, I received sign up confirmation so I‘m not sure what‘s going on! 2w
DGRachel Since there was no other interest in Group P, I deleted my sign up, so you can open it up to any genre. 😊 2w

Dragonfairykats My biggest problem is I normally read ebooks. I would have signed up for group U instead of group S if I had more actual books (though I plan to stalk my local used bookstore).

- Non-US residents can still pick any book they want regardless of genre

hjreviews @GypsyKat I was the same way for a while and joined earlier this year, and what I‘ve found is either I love 3 books or are meh about all of them. But if I‘m meh about all of them, I typically use my credit to go back and get one of the books I didn‘t get previously that I was really interested in. Still a better deal than buying them from the store 2mo

Angeles How about ancestral night by Elizabeth Bear? 3mo
Sunraven I‘m coming to this late, so is there a list of past books that were already done, so I don‘t duplicate something if I nominate? 😁 3mo
imyril @Laughterhp ooh seconded! 3mo
TheSpineView Children of Blood and Bone 3mo
InLibrisVeritas @Sunraven Welcome! I just posted a list for you and anyone else who would like to know the previous books. 😊 3mo
Sunraven Woohoo! Thank you very much! ❤️ 3mo
Sunraven Although, does “no direct sequels” mean nominations shouldn‘t BE direct sequels, or that they can‘t have any direct sequels? Just making sure I understand. 😉 3mo
bookandcat @Sunraven they can have sequels you just can't suggest a sequel to read 3mo
Sunraven @bookandcat: Okay, great. Thank you! ☺️ 3mo
InLibrisVeritas @bookandcat Thank you for helping out! 3mo

@Hooked_on_books Did you decide on a book yet?

Hooked_on_books I‘m likely to go with Miracle Creek, but @Mynameisacolour hasn‘t weighed in yet and I wanted to give her a little more time. 3mo
Mynameisacolour Sorry! I'm good with any of them! 😊 3mo

🧐🤔🤔🤔 @Suvata's Group needs another member for #lmpbc if anyone still wants to join!

madamereadsalot1 What's this lmpbc thing all about? 4mo
Kayla.Adriena @madamereadsalot1 it's a group of 4 members and each person picks a book and marks notes in it then sends it to the next person and so on so on. Eventually you end up with your original book all marked up with everyone's notes! 4mo
madamereadsalot1 That sounds super cool. I'm in no place to participate right now, but one of these days I would like to! 4mo
Kayla.Adriena @madamereadsalot1 the time line is actually pretty relaxed, I sent every book late last round and no one cared. And if you do media mail it's cheap! 4mo

#LMPBC Round 6 - #GroupB
@mynameisacolour @Kaila-Ann @EmilyM @suvata

HELP! It seems that @EmilyM will not be able to participate in this round. I know this is late notice, but would anyone like to pick a book and take her place in our group?

Hooked_on_books If someone is willing to mail to Hawaii (it would have to be priority or maybe regular mail, as media mail is not reliable enough), I‘d be happy to join you. (edited) 4mo
suvata @Hooked_on_books @Kaila-ann would you be willing to mail to Hawaii via priory mail? 4mo
Kaila-ann I can, yes. 4mo

Hooked_on_books Cool! I‘m all signed up and will pick and post some book options later today. I‘ve done a couple of cycles of this and enjoy it so much! @Kaila-ann, I‘ve found that the priority flat rate bubble mailers work well and the price is the same to ship them here as on the mainland. Thanks for being willing to mail to me! 3mo
suvata @Hooked_on_books Thank you so much for bailing us out. You are awesome! 3mo

I find that I've been picking up more and more books that are in a book club recommendation.
Which, if any, book clubs are you drawn to?

I've been working my way through Reese Witherspoon's picks lately.

elyseh I'm in Reese's I love her choices! I didn't know Sarah Jessica had one now I have to check it out lol. Most of my choices come from my book club on facebook though. 3mo
ChristinasBookChronicles @FeministBookClub 😁👍 I love Our Shared Shelf, too, AND I tend to choose a lot from Oprah's and Reese's as well! #LoveThemAll 3mo
FeministBookClub Thanks for the shoutout @ChristinasBookChronicles! Our books are all suggested by and voted on by members. 💜 3mo

Just a reminder from #LMPBC ...

Welcome to Round 6!

Hopefully you have picked out the book you want to share by now. It‘s time to start reading and marking-up passages you want to highlight. Be creative and don‘t forget to introduce yourself in the front of the book. I will send out a few reminders during the month and then a final one at the end of the month to remind you to mail it out to the next person in line.

Shakespearience Got it! Saving this post for later so I can remember the order. Thanks! 4mo
suvata @Shakespearience no problem 4mo

I‘m super excited to (hopefully) be spearheading a parent-student book club at our elementary school. It‘s in the early stages, but we‘re thinking 4th and 5th graders will be our target participants. Our PTO is working with our principal to role out some books about diversity and inclusion, so our first book will be one of those titles. Any input on titles or even how to implement a book club like this is much appreciated!

crazyspine Out of my Mind 4mo
Lindy That's a great target age. Before I retired, I loved doing library presentations for Grade 4 because they didn't seem to censor their excitement about books. 4mo
Amiable How exciting! My only input would be to make sure the books chosen are ones that boys would also want to read. As the mom of two boys, that was the complaint I heard most often from them at that age -- that the books they had to read in school were “too girly.“ 4mo

mdm139 My kid‘s school does a book club each month and they read the battle of books books each year. You don‘t have to participate in battle of books, it is just how they choice the books. Last years books had some diverse books. 4mo
ravenlee It might be a bit above the age range, but one that could spark some very interesting discussion with parents and kids. 4mo
Slajaunie Exciting!! 4mo
Cinfhen Tagging @Lmstraubie she‘s an elementary school librarian and she‘s 💯awesome ‼️‼️‼️great 💡, Steph ❤️ 4mo
britt_brooke What a great idea!! 4mo
IamIamIam I'm late to the party because I commented in my head and not for real... 🤣 I'm definitely excited to see this come to fruition and to see what books you guys come up with!!! @LibrarianRyan may have some great suggestions too! 4mo
LibrarianRyan I miss doing book clubs like these. I always liked to mix old and new releases. I got to where the kids would help pick the books. We would have a vote day where I would put out about 80 titles. The kids got their top three choices, I got my top 3, and the rest were used to fill in genres the kids didn‘t already picked. Each year we would also read a classic and read a retelling. 4mo
LibrarianRyan Book suggestions now. An older black man and a blind young while child must survive on a deserted island. (edited) 4mo
LibrarianRyan A great look at how something small can be known out of proportion. 4mo
