Sace Could you add me to the tag list? Please? And thanks! (edited) 1mo
peanutnine I plan to read Sea of Tranquility and reread Station Eleven if I have time. I'd like to watch the mini series and compare 1mo
Jess I wish I could have my brain scrubbed so I could read Station Eleven again for the first time but since that isn‘t possible, I‘ll be reading her backlist. 1mo

IndoorDame I started The Glass Hotel, but wasn‘t feeling super drawn in so Ive decided to reread Station Eleven because Ive been wanting to watch the miniseries, and maybe it‘ll get me excited to read one of the others tangentially in that universe. 1mo
tpixie @Soubhiville ah ha!!! I‘m going to finally get Station Eleven off my bookshelf!!! (edited) 1mo
Soubhiville @tpixie yay! I hope you love it. 1mo

tpixie @Soubhiville oh my!! It was a present I received for Litsy Christmas book swap in 2017!!! And I‘ve been wanting to read it since before I got it - how did it get pushed back so far?!! 1mo

Heads up #AuthorAMonth readers 🙂. We‘re 2/3 of the way through March and you all have read a lot of Jane Harper! She seems to mostly be a hit.

As we inch closer to April, you may want to place your library hold or order for Ruth Ozeki books. It will be my first experience with her, and I‘m looking forward to it!

Happy Reading 📚🙂💚.

TheBookHippie Just put holds in yesterday!! 2mo
TheSpineView Looked at this author's books. Now I need to see what the library has to offer. 2mo
AmyG All set for Ozeki! I think it was you who gave me 2mo
CatLass007 I thought both of the Jane Harper books I listened to were excellent and I plan to make my way through the rest of her books. I‘ve put a Ruth Ozeki book on hold with my library. Looking forward to it! 2mo
Soubhiville @AmyG yes, that‘s a chunky one! 2mo
Yenya1954 I‘ve never read any of Ruth Ozeki‘s writings. I just reserved “A Tale for the Time Being.” 2mo
Caryl A Tale for the Time Being is one of my very favorite books. 💖 I plan to read The Book of Form and Emptiness in April. 2mo
KadaGul @Soubhiville I'm sorry 😢 to say that I won't be able to continue being a part of the AuthorAMonth book club. Things have been getting pretty hectic lately, and with school 🏫 and summer 🌞coming up, it will only get busier. 2mo
Soubhiville @KadaGul no worries! Do you want me to take you off the tag list? I‘m glad you got to read along with us for a bit. Come back in anytime! 2mo
KadaGul @Soubhiville, If it's not too much trouble, could you please remove me from the list? I will rejoin once things have settled down. 2mo

It‘s March #AuthorAMonth readers! Time to pick up something by Jane Harper. What are you hoping to read?

https://forms.gle/3N5rn4hdF86TXvUFA

All the rules and prize info are on the form.

Your already started form should be available to edit in your Google Drive as well. ⬇️ 3mo

Hello #AuthorAMonth readers! We‘ve got about a week left in February with Lauren Groff. I hope you‘ve been enjoying your time with her.

March‘s author is Jane Harper. It might be a good time to place your library hold or order. 📚❤️🙂

Have a great week!

tpixie @Soubhiville thanks 😊 3mo
CatLass007 I haven‘t gotten to the Lauren Groff book I had chosen. I‘ve felt pressured all month to get everything done before the end of the month. And that pressure is self-imposed. Plus February, even in a leap year, is a short month. Not enough time to get everything done that I want to do. But I am looking forward to Dry by Jane Harper. (edited) 3mo
Soubhiville @CatLass007 no worries! It‘s not important to read every author, it‘s only important to enjoy what you can and do read. 😊 3mo
CatLass007 @Soubhiville Thank you. 3mo

CatLass007 Since I won‘t be doing the challenge portion, I don‘t think it‘s vital that I fill out the Google form. I already have my Lauren Groff book, The Vaster Wilds! 4mo
Gissy Thank you! I completed the form with books read in January 2024🤗I‘m planning to read, but not 100% sure, more books by this author but later in the year, as part of another reading goal. 4mo
Soubhiville @CatLass007 you may want to do the Google form if you‘d like to be eligible for the prize drawing. Everyone who reads at least one book is automatically entered, but I go by the form to draw winners. 🙂 4mo
Soubhiville I hope to read the tagged, if I have time to get to it this month. It‘s the only book of Groff‘s I haven‘t read yet: 4mo
KadaGul @Soubhiville I got done ✅ w/ my local libraries' 📚 reading 📖 challenges earlier than anticipated that's why I can participate in February. I'm looking 👀 forward to reading 📖 Vester Wilds. I just have to pick up from library 📚 4mo

peanutnine I'm planning to read Monsters of Templeton since I got a copy from a used book sale a while back. I'd also like to try to get to Fates and Furies if I have time, it was recommended highly on my favorite book podcast 4mo
LiteraryHoarderPenny @peanutnine Monsters of Templeton is my absolute favourite by Groff. Loved it! 4mo
Jess I got a head start and just finished Arcadia on audio (a low pick for me) and have Fates and Furies and Monsters of Templeton on my shelves so hope to read both this month. 4mo
peanutnine @LiteraryHoarderPenny oh yay, that makes me more excited to read it! 4mo
TheSpineView This author is going to be hard for me. I tried to read Fates and Furies a few years back and ended up bailing on it. I think it will just be whatever is available at the library. 4mo
Yenya1954 I enjoyed Delicate Edible Birds and other stories. 4mo
Bookzombie I‘m going to read Monsters of Templeton. 4mo

We have a little more than a week left in January #AuthorAMonth readers. 🙂 I hope you‘re enjoying reading Jane Austen‘s books.

Quick reminder that February will be Lauren Groff‘s month of recognition. Do you need to put a hold on a book from your library or place an order with your local indie bookseller?

I‘ll be posting the 2024 google sheet at the end of January.

Happy reading!

AmyG I am excited for Groff. 4mo

Megabooks Ordered this but I may have read it years ago. I also plan to try one of her earlier novels on audio! 4mo
Soubhiville @Megabooks I think that‘s the only one I haven‘t read yet, so I hope I will read that as well 🙂. 4mo

CBee @Soubhiville could you email me your new address please? I‘d like to (eventually) send you something 😊 it‘s cydneybean@gmail.com. 4mo
IndoorDame My hold on The Vaster Wilds just came in yesterday. I‘m super excited about it since it‘s on my #auldlangspine list and I‘ve never read anything by Groff before. 4mo
CatLass007 Does anyone have any recommendation(s) for my first book by Lauren Groff? 4mo
AmyG @CatLass007 I can only say my first Groff was Monsters of Templeton and I loved it. I am going to read Florida and maybe, MAYBE, Arcadia. 4mo
Soubhiville @CatLass007 if you like short stories, Florida is my favorite by her. If you prefer novels I thought The Vaster Wilds was great. 4mo
AmandaBlaze I couldn't get into Northanger Abbey. I'll probably try again some day. I'm going to read Vaster Wilds for February. I loved Arcadia. 4mo
CatLass007 @AmyG @Soubhiville Thank you both. I think I prefer novels over short stories. It‘s hard to be invested in the characters in the short form. But if I like the novel I choose, I‘m more likely to choose books by the same author. 4mo
AmyG @Soubhiville OOOO thrilled to know how good Florida is. (edited) 4mo
Bklover I have The Vaster Wilds that I don‘t even remember buying, but I‘d like to try Florida as well. 4mo
Laughterhp I own the vaster Wilds, so I‘m going to read that and try fates and furies because I own that one as well! 4mo

Yenya1954 Thanks! I just reserved one! 4mo
Gissy @Soubhiville Thank you🤗 4mo
Morr_Books I can't believe I haven't picked up an Austen yet. I guess there is still a little time.... 4mo
Bluebird I‘m reading an annotated version of Pride and Prejudice, nearly done. I am a bit nervous about Groff. I bailed on the Vaster Wilds at about 15%-despite it being read by one of my favorite narrators. I have Monsters of Templeton and Edible Birds on hold at the library-will see what comes up. 4mo

Preparing for #authoramonth for 2024 is proving difficult. I have very few books by these authors. Husband has most of Pratchett‘s books, so he‘s going to help me pick for December. But otherwise, I‘ll be looking for suggestions.

Other than Emma, I‘ve not read books by Jane Austen. I‘m about 1/3 into Pride and Prejudice and I‘m enjoying it very much. I‘m pleasantly surprised (& some authors not so much—Rushdie). That‘s why I love this challenge!

TEArificbooks For SA Cosby, I loved Razorblade Tears so I have his new one pulled for that month 5mo
TEArificbooks For Emily St John I loved Station 11 and Sea of Tranquility 5mo
See All 14 Comments
TEArificbooks For Tana French I liked In the Woods the first in a series. They made it into a tv show but the mixed two books into the first season so you might want to read both books before watching 5mo
Texreader @TEArificbooks I actually bailed on that Tana French book. I got so bored. Any others? 5mo
TEArificbooks @Texreader I did like The Dry and every Sarah Addison Allen that you already have there. Only read the one French so far but I have The Witch Elm pulled for it. 5mo
Texreader @TEArificbooks I‘m really struggling with Sarah Waters. Every book that looks interesting to me has poor reviews that I‘d likely agree with (they are too slow-a complaint I take to heart). Have you read anything you liked by her? 5mo
Texreader Kuang‘s Babel was on my tbr, so I‘ve easily added that one. 5mo
CBee @Texreader a lot of Littens really like Fingersmith by Waters. Anything by Cosby is bound to be amazing. The Aaron Falk series by Jane Harper is good. 5mo
CBee Kuang‘s Yellowface was amazing, and my favorite by Klune is The House on the Cerulean Sea (Under the Whispering Door is also so good). 5mo
TEArificbooks @Texreader never read Waters but had many friends recommend Fingersmith 5mo
Texreader @CBee Thank you!! I‘m pretty sure my son has House on the Cerulean Sea so I‘ve stacked that one. And thanks for all the recommendations. Really appreciated! 5mo
Amiable @Texreader If you couldn‘t get into Tana French‘s Dublin Squad series, try “The Searcher” or “The Witch Elm.” They aren‘t related to the series. 5mo
CBee @Texreader you‘re welcome ♥️ 5mo

Gissy I completed the 2023 form. Is this a new form for 2024 or is the same for 2024? There are some months without information because I didn‘t read any book or I didn‘t complete the book for that author. (edited) 5mo
Bklover I sent mine yesterday 😊 5mo

Amiable I think I submitted the form? I updated it every month after I finished a book —did that do it ? I only read 12 books —one for each month. 5mo
dariazeoli Form should be complete. Thanks! ♥️ 5mo
Soubhiville @amiable sounds like you‘re good. I am not opening the spreadsheet until I‘m ready to start calculating, late tonight. 🙂 5mo

Welcome to January 2024 #AuthorAMonth readers! Time to pull out our Jane Austen books. What are you planning to read?

#AuthorAMonth is a no-pressure, no-commitment Litsy challenge. The goal is to celebrate the works of a particular author each month. Authors were chosen through polls by Litsy participants. Read as many as you like, skip months when needed, it's entirely up to you! ⬇️

Soubhiville There will be some prizes sent at the end of the year:

-There will be ONE prize book box for "MOST READ." In order to qualify, books must be FINISHED in the appropriate month. (Bails will not be counted.) It is up to you to keep track by editing your Google form each month. (this prize can only be won once, there will be a different winner every year.) ⬇️
5mo
Soubhiville -There will be one prize randomly chosen from the "EVERY MONTH CLUB". To qualify for this prize you must read one or more book every month for the qualifying author. For this category BAILS COUNT. The winners will be chosen randomly from the participants that qualify for the club. 5mo
Soubhiville -There will also be one or more random prizes sent to any randomly drawn participant who has FINISHED at least one qualifying book during the year.

Only Listy members who are still active in the Listy community at the time of drawings will qualify.

I will build a new Google form for 2024 by the end of January. ⬇️

Soubhiville As always, let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the tag list. 🙂📚. Happy Reading! 5mo
Soubhiville I am using the 2024 tag list for the first time. If I‘ve made any typos let me know, or if I‘ve somehow missed adding you I apologize, just let me know. 😁🤞 5mo
Susanita Maybe this time I will actually finish Emma! 5mo
Soubhiville Some of you are tagged more than once because I‘m not sure the tag worked for the first time… let me know if you got two notifications? I‘m going to read 5mo
Soubhiville @Susanita good luck! Classics can be a challenge for me. 5mo
dariazeoli This is the year I finally read 5mo
IndoorDame I‘m thinking I‘m going to read Emma. I think it‘s been by far the longest since I‘ve read it. 5mo
Lcsmcat I may reread Persuasion. It‘s my favorite Austen. 5mo
Bookwormjillk I‘m not sure yet. I‘ve read them all so it‘s going to be a mid-month treat for me to pick whichever one I have a feel for. 5mo
Laughterhp I‘m going with Sense and Sensibility. I‘ve never read it before. I‘m just waiting on my library copy. 5mo
Amiable I may skip this month to focus on my #AuldLangSpine booklist—undetermined at this time. 🙂 5mo
Jess I found two different copies of Sense and Sensibility on my shelves so will start there but I‘ve never read Northanger Abbey and may want to try that this month. 5mo
AllDebooks I might go with Persuasion as it's the only one I haven't read or maybe stick with comfort reading my favourite 5mo
Melismatic I‘m not an Austen girlie but I trust this challenge! Gonna go left field with 5mo
vonnie862 I'm going to try Northanger Abbey. 5mo
Soubhiville @Melismatic I‘ve actually never read her! I feel like a book traitor to say I enjoy the movies but have never been drawn to the books. I‘m trying this month though! 5mo
Soubhiville @Amiable I love that challenge! I hope you have a bunch of books you‘re excited about for it. 5mo
vlwelser Emma. I'm not really an Austen person. I read P&P and kept expecting (hoping) zombies were about to lumber out of the bushes. We'll see what happens with this one. 5mo
BarkingMadRead I think I‘m going to read Persuasion. I always reach for P&P so I thought I‘d try something different 5mo
Read4life I‘m going to try Northanger Abbey on Serial Reader 5mo
Soubhiville @Read4life oh great idea! I often forget about serial reader. 5mo
Bookzombie I‘m going with Sense and Sensibility. 5mo
MrsV I think I might try Persuasion 5mo
Julsmarshall I‘m not sure, like @Bookwormjillk I‘ve read and own them all and plan to see where the wind takes me mid-month. Excited to get back into Austen 🤩 5mo
Caryl I‘m excited for Austen month! It will be fun to read all the posts. I‘ve read The Big Six, so I‘m going to start with one of her early works, then see if I have time for more. 5mo
Deblovestoread I‘m going to start with Persuasion. If time allows I might squeeze in either P & P or S & S. 5mo
dabbe Either SENSE AND SENSIBILITY or PERSUASION. Haven't read either one. 5mo
mom2bugnbee My favorite! So excited to have an excuse to re-read her catalog! 5mo
KadaGul @Soubhiville I might not be able to get to the Authors until March. I am in few local Library 📚 reading 📖 challenges. They all will end in February. For March #JANEHARPER I'll have #DRYBYJANEHARPER 5mo
Soubhiville @KadaGul do you want to be added to the tag list? 5mo
KadaGul @Soubhiville Yes I want to because 5/12 I'm in local library challenges and then the rest i don't know 🤷‍♀️ what to read. This way I'll have little theme going on to fill in the gaps. If that's ok with you. 5mo
Andrew65 Going in for January with 5mo
DHill I‘ll be reading 5mo
gossamerchild I think I'm gonna start with Persuasion, as it's my favorite ❤️❤️❤️ 5mo
Bluebird I can‘t decide! I may put the names in a hat and choose that way. 😂😂 5mo
Eyelit @Caryl Twinsies! That‘s what I‘m doing as well 😃 5mo
Caryl @Eyelit - Awesome! We‘ll have to compare notes. 🤓💖 5mo

CatLass007 I enjoyed Nnedi Okorafor. I‘m still reading more of her books. 5mo
Soubhiville My favorites this year were Louise Erdrich and Maggie O‘Farrell. 🙂 5mo
BarkingMadRead Loved Reid, st James, and O‘Farrell 5mo
Melismatic For me, a toss up between Erdrich, Okorafor, and Morton 💖 5mo
tjwill I already loved and had read most of Ruth Ware‘s, Taylor Jenkins Reid‘s, and Simone St. James‘s books, so I read theirs that I hadn‘t read yet, but the one I read the most this year was John Steinbeck. I think I read 6 of his books. I read some AAM books every month but December because I was busy and didn‘t finish the one I was working on. (edited) 5mo
Andrew65 Thanks for such a great reading year @Soubhiville. I completed the form earlier today. Amazed when looking back to see I‘ve read 28 #AuthorAMonth books. Happy New Year to you. 5mo
Amiable Steinbeck and Larson. In fact, my Steinbeck pick almost won my nonfiction reading bracket for the year. I‘m proud of myself for finally making it into the “Every Month Club” this year! (edited) 5mo
DHill My favorite new-to-me author was Maggie O‘Farrell. 5mo
AmyG My favorites were O‘Farrell and Morton, though not new to me. 5mo
Soubhiville Thanks @Andrew65 ! Happy New Year! 5mo
dabbe Thanks for hosting this incredible event, @Soubhiville. I can only barely imagine the hard work involved. My faves this year were totally new to me: Erdrich, O'Farrell, and Ishiguro. Steinbeck has always been a personal favorite, so it was nice to read something of his I had never read before. Looking forward to 2024! 💙🖤💙 5mo
Megabooks I already knew I loved O‘Farrell, but discovering I loved Erdrich, too, was wonderful!! Thanks for another great year!! (edited) 5mo
UwannaPublishme Thanks for being our awesome host of this fun challenge! I was thrilled to finally read Taylor Jenkins Reid‘s Evelyn Hugo and Steinbeck‘s Grapes of Wrath. 5mo
BookwormAHN Surprisingly my favorite was The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie 😺 5mo
Bookwormjillk I loved re-reading some of my favorite Steinbeck books. 5mo
gossamerchild I was super surprised by John Steinbeck (The Grapes of Wrath might have been my favorite of the year) and Simone St. James. Such a great year of authors. I'm so excited for 2024! 5mo
Teresereading Ursula Le Guin was a great discovery for me 5mo
Jess My favs this year (although not new to me) were O‘Farrell and Ishiguro. It was great to clear my shelves of their backlist. My surprise fav author was St. James. I will definitely be picking up others from this author. Thanks for a fanatic year! 5mo
Read4life Kate Morton. I ended up reading 2 different books from what I originally picked because library holds came in. I plan to read the 2 I own in early 2024. 5mo
Caryl Favorites: I loved beginning 2023 with Erdrich‘s The Sentence! I was also happy to finally read O‘Farrell‘s Hamnet. I didn‘t get to Ishiguro or Morton, but hope to sneak them into my 2024 reading. Thank you for hosting this wonderful challenge, Soubhi! 5mo
Gissy Maggie O‘Farrell

Followed by Kate Morton and Simone St. James
5mo
Bluebird Reid and O‘Farrell were my favorites. Both were new to me. 5mo
Bklover I love St.James. Also Steinbeck and Ishiguro. Was a very good year!! 5mo

We are drawing close to the end of December and the end of the year #AuthorAMonth readers. I hope you are enjoying your Kate Morton books. I‘ve been seeing your reviews 🙂📚.

We will be starting off 2024 with Jane Austen, get your holds placed soon if you need to. I‘m pondering which to read, and I‘ve appreciated everyone‘s recommendations.

Don‘t forget to fill in your google form when you know you‘ve finished your last #AAM book for the year.

Soubhiville @vonnie862 and @BarkingMadRead you‘re both added to the tag list 🙂 6mo
Soubhiville Happy Thanksgiving all! Happy Thanksgiving 🍁🍽📚 6mo
Gissy Fantastic selection!!! 🤩Yes, I‘m here seeing the post and already reviewing in my mind the books I already own from each author!!! There are some authors that I need to buy at least one book, great excuse to acquire more books📚☺️

I‘m still reading books from this year AuthorAMonth but those are books I owned so is good to continue reading books from my physical tbr.
6mo
gossamerchild Yay! What a great lineup. I love it. Thank you! 6mo
Amiable That‘s a whole lotta female authors —it wasn‘t as obvious until the photo collage. Wowsa. 6mo
Bookzombie I‘m excited for this list. There are a few authors I will get to revisit and the rest will be a push to finally pick one of theirs up. Happy Thanksgiving to you, your husband and your fur babies! @Soubhiville 6mo
jenniferw88 Thanks for organising, @Soubhiville , but I'd just like to mention that it's AustEn, not AustIn. It's one of my few bookish bugbears - you're not the only person who spells it wrong! 6mo
Eyelit Please add me to tag list - I‘ll def be participating this year! You do a StoryGraph challenge for this too, right? 6mo
Eyelit Also, who is that for the pic of Jane Austen? 6mo
rwmg @Eyelit Is it Virginia Woolf? 6mo
Eyelit @rwmg yes, I think it might be. Thanks! 6mo
Soubhiville @Eyelit @rwmg oh no it‘s not her? I used Pinterest. I will try to find another portrait! Oops! Thanks for bringing it to my attention! 6mo
Soubhiville @Eyelit yes I‘ll set up a StoryGraph for those who want it, but it might take me a couple of weeks to make that happen. 6mo
DHill So excited for 2024 authors! 6mo
peanutnine Could you add me to your tag list for this next year? There are a lot of authors on here I'm interested in ☺️ 6mo
Soubhiville @peanutnine you are added 🙂📚 6mo

Megabooks @jenniferw88 thanks for the tip! 6mo
Andrew65 @jenniferw88 Thanks for the suggestion 😁 6mo

#AuthorAMonth readers (and anyone else who is interested)

It‘s time to nominate authors for next year‘s reading list!

I will build the poll in 2-3 weeks. Nominate anyone you‘d like, but I‘ll remove all authors we‘ve already read from the poll list.

Authors can write any genre, but must have several books published.

I‘m looking forward to seeing who you suggest!

It is up to you to keep track by editing the Google form each month. (this prize can only be won once, there will be a different winner every year.) ⬇️
8mo
Soubhiville -There will be one prize chosen from the "EVERY MONTH CLUB". To qualify for this prize you must read one or more book every month for the qualifying author. For this category BAILS COUNT. The winners will be chosen randomly from the participants that qualify for the club.

CatLass007 I have a couple of Grady Hendrix books in my audio library that I might try to fit in during October. I‘ve never read anything by him either, but I remember a lot of Littens referring to My Best Friend‘s Exorcism in a positive way. I remember reading The Exorcist and The Shining at different points in my youth and I don‘t think anything could be more scary than those two books. 8mo

August is more than halfway over #authoramonth readers. I hope you‘re enjoying your time reading Salman Rushdie. (I see from reviews he‘s a bit hit or miss.)

September will bring us to Nnedi Okorafor. Place your library hold or orders, or find her on your shelves. Binti is a favorite of mine if you‘d like a recommendation 🙂📚.

Teresereading Home now from my trip. I have find a Rushdie. Midnights Children is an all time favourite but maybe I should try one of the later ones? 9mo
IndoorDame @Soubhiville When we go back and fill out your google form do we add DNFs to the number column, or just to the title column? (edited) 9mo
Soubhiville @IndoorDame just note them in the title column and note that you bailed. 🙂 9mo
IndoorDame @Soubhiville got it. Thanks! 9mo

Repost for @Tove_Reads

Here‘s my idea: one author, one day, and everyone loving his/her books will post on Litsy and other social media, tagging the author, to show love! I want this authorto be fantastic, but sadly not that famous. I‘d love to have several people helping me coordinate this, and as many as possible to participate. What do you think, Littens? ...

monibookishnerd Sounds great! I'd like to participate! 10mo

Happy August! Time to pull out our Salman Rushdie books for #AuthorAMonth. What are you planning to read?

#AuthorAMonth is a no-pressure, no-commitment Litsy challenge. The goal is to celebrate the works of a particular author each month. Authors were chosen through polls by Litsy participants. Read as many as you like, skip months when needed, it's entirely up to you!

Hello #AuthorAMonth readers! July is winding down and we‘re wrapping up our month with Maggie O‘Farrell. I‘m happy she was voted onto this year‘s author list and I enjoyed my first experience with her. 🙂

If you haven‘t yet, it‘s time to place your holds or orders and find your copies of Salman Rushdie. He‘s our August author.

Bookzombie I was really going to try and complete 1 book for each author but I think I‘m going to skip July. 11mo

Bookwormjillk I tried two for June but couldn‘t get into them. Looking forward to July though. 11mo
dabbe @Bookwormjillk I did, too! I just couldn't get into the sci-fi vibe, and the writing seemed to be in the past instead of futuristic. This is my first fail this year. ☹️ 11mo
Cinfhen I skipped this month and I‘m skipping July too! I‘ve read several by her which I loved but the books I haven‘t read im really not interested in 🤷🏼‍♀️ 11mo

Hi #authoramonth readers 👋. May is halfway over already. Can you believe it? I hope you‘re learning interesting things with this month‘s nonfiction author Erik Larson.

June will bring us to Ursula K Le Guin, so start finding her on your personal shelves or putting in those library holds. I‘m excited for some sci-fi/fantasy! 📚
