The book is ALL kinds of racist, and I wish I could say times have changed a lot since it was written, but they haven't changed anywhere near enough. The sunrise was gorgeous, though! #audiowalk #litsywalkers

Since there were a few comments about the old cover on my James Bond book yesterday, I thought I'd post pictures of the others from my library. Here are the Roger Moore film tie-ins (and his diary while filming Live and Let Die - I was a huge fan, but you have to make allowances, I was VERY young😂)

Ruthiella Moore was my first bond too. 😀 6mo
Reggie I look at him now back then and wonder what I was thinking, but I had such a crush on him and he still remains my favorite Bond. A View to a Kill is still my favorite Bond movie with him in it. RIP Roger Moore. 6mo
CarolynM @Reggie Clearly we share the same questionable taste😂 6mo

This was my first encounter with Harlem (I read all the James Bond books at an unhealthily early age I think I was 10 when I read this one) but I don't remember any angels.

Ruthiella Love the cover! One instance where the movie tie in is cool (though one may not have agreed with me back in the 70s when it was printed)😎 7mo
CarolynM @Ruthiella I thought it was incredibly cool at the time, but I didn't know enough to know any better! 7mo
TrishB Hard to remember they were books first as the films have taken over so much! 7mo

Cinfhen So true @TrishB I don‘t think I‘ve read any Ian Fleming 😢 7mo
erzascarletbookgasm I love these old editions, cool looking covers. 7mo
Jeg Love Older books. Does that one smell good? 😊 (edited) 6mo
CarolynM @Jeg It definitely has an old book smell, but it doesn't smell as nice as the old leather bound books🙂 6mo

Went to Spyscape in NYC - it's a spy museum/experience complete with surveillance, lie detection, and laser maze challenges among others. I got assigned the role of Spycatcher at the end due to the data they collected on me throughout. It said I am a perfectionist, am analytical, and inquisitive. They pegged me spot on. Super fun day and got some books from the upstairs gift shop. Am about to visit the downstairs SPY BOOKSTORE. #spy #spyscape #nyc

InLibrisVeritas That sounds incredibly cool! 7mo
MaleficentBookDragon That sounds like so much fun. 7mo

More colourful covers from the James Bond collection I bought my husband for his birthday! #PinkCover #AprilBookishMadness

GarthRanzz These are just the best covers! 1y
TK-421 @GarthRanzz 🙌 I'm planning to post pics of all of them eventually. I've been using photo challenges as an excuse to post them here & there, but I might end up just sharing them for the joy of it 😊 (edited) 14mo

Gave up on this because of the racism.

Mehso-so

Not my favorite Ian Fleming Bond book, but it is my favorite copy because it's a souvenir from #shakennotstirred signed by Simon Vance himself. He made listening to the whole series fun, not to mention the Twitter viewing parties.

Dogearedcopy Oh! But this is the novel where we learn that Fleming's Bond & Leiter are not as immune to the vicissitudes of the spy trade as are their Hollywood counterparts! And voodoo! And sharks! And Bond Girl Jane Seymour as Solitaire! :-) #shakennotstirred 3y
LitHousewife Very true, but it's far from Dr. No and On Her Majesty's Secret Service, which are by far my favorites. 😍 #shakennotstirred 3y
bermudaonion That covers embodies everything I dislike about James Bond. 3y
Dogearedcopy LOL, 'Live and Let Die' isn't my favorite either (It's a toss-up btw 'Casino Royale' & 'From Russia with Love.) The whole series was bizarrely uneven, and each novel on itself had something to like and dislike! For this one, I liked the Jamaican setting & Fleming's descriptiveness of the waters :-) 3y
LitHousewife You definitely need to look past the sexism if you're going to read Bond novels, @bermudaonion . 3y
