Booked: The Last 150 Years Told through Mug Shots | Giacomo Papi
57 posts | 1 to read
Every year twelve million Americans are arrested and photographed by the police. In many ways, mug shots are our history. Using a dazzling selection of mug shots that are arrestingly raw in their starkness and strangely eloquent in their simplicity, this absorbing, humorous, often bewildering collection sheds a whole new light on our rebellious century. From political icons Martin Luther King Jr.and Angela Davis, to A-list celebrities Hugh Grant and 50 Cent, from killer Ted Kaczynski to the actor who aided in Abraham Lincolns assassination, from prisoners of Auschwitz to a bearded Saddam Hussein, all of them declare a simple truth: The last 150 years told through police photography is truly an alternative history. Author Giacomo Papis brisk and insightful commentary enlightens us with intriguing backstories and little-known facts. A feast for the eyes and the mind, Booked presents an ingenious and utterly unique snapshot of our times.

These are what I read for #BOOKED2021 SUMMER. Actually I‘m still reading “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close”. May I use that again on the FALL list for the Jewish Author and/or MC?

Cinfhen Unfortunately, that‘s our ONLY “rule” one book per prompt!! Sorry ? Don‘t forget that we are now tallying completed prompts with a form submission???Every book read, from July 1- September 30th earns you a chance to win our quarterly drawing? You have until midnight, **Oct 3** to fill out the third quarter form
Allylu @Cinfhen That‘s fine. I have another one in mind for that prompt anyway. I‘m not really interested in drawings right now. I‘m just enjoying the variety of books I‘ve discovered fulfilling the prompts in this challenge. It‘s been the best one this year. Thanks for doing all the work! 1y
Cinfhen So glad you‘re enjoying the challenge!!! That makes us SO HAPPY 😁 @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft 1y

I was in my slump, when it was time to post our reads for the second quarter of #Booked2020. However, better late than never 😅 I‘m reading complete out of season, because my reading is all about mood, and very little planning 👍

Repost for @Cinfhen :

We‘re SO excited to share our 3rd annual reading challenge #Booked2020❣️
As usual, there are 24 prompts broken into 4 quarters/seasons. You are free to read in any order you wish. Just one book per prompt, please.

*New this Year* the last week of each quarter you MUST post & tag us with your completed prompts in order to be eligible for the quarterly drawing.

Questions ~ ask away
Sign up: https://tinyurl.com/y62p9fxs

marleed Does this mean you read throughout the quarter but wait until the last week of that quarter to post about that book with the booked2020 hashtag - meaning no booked2020 hashtag until the last week of the quarter? 3y
Cinfhen No @marleed We STILL would LOVE to see what you‘re reading/ have read but those posts are no longer counting as an “official” entry post. It became too overwhelming checking & logging every day so now we are ONLY recording “wrap up posts “ as “official” entry posts for Quarterly Drawings. Thanks for asking!!!!! (edited) 3y
marleed Oh, I get it - thanks! This will be my first time participating in this challenge- I‘m excited! 3y
AmyG Omg....it‘s here! Thank you. I have one book left for 2019...and then I can start figuring this out. I think my favorite part is finding books for the prompts. 3y
IamIamIam Whoo hoo!!!! Just signed up!!! Thanks so much for running this challenge! It's so easily managed that I don't feel any pressure, except when it comes to #LiteraryMammograms. 😂😘 @cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft 3y

BarbaraBB @JanuarieTimewalker13 And do are you up to it? Or too many challenges right now?! 4y
andrew61 Great choices - i have seating arrangements somewhere, didn't think to try it. 4y
JanuarieTimewalker13 I may try summer-when is the start date? 6/22? 4y
BarbaraBB @JanuarieTimewalker13 I think you can start anytime but just to make sure I‘ll ask @Cinfhen ! 4y
Cinfhen Hi @JanuarieTimewalker13 You can join #Booked2019 whenever!! It‘s 24 prompts broken into 4 quarters but the goal is to read all 24 by Dec 31,2019. You might have read a bunch already without knowing. I‘ll look for the original 24 prompts and tag u. Just use #hashtag #Booked2019 when u post a review and tag me and my cohosts @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft We do a quarterly drawing for a $20 gift card each quarter 👇🏼 4y
Cinfhen And for every book read, no matter from which quarter/ season you earn a chance for the drawing. One book per prompt with a maximum of 24 entries! It‘s fun and no pressure 💞 4y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Cinfhen ok, cool, thank you!! So if I have books I‘ve already read that fit, I should just go back and tag them? 4y
Cinfhen Yes @JanuarieTimewalker13 ❤️and I‘m sorry I forgot to search for the original prompts. I will try later today 4y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Cinfhen No worries, I found them just below this post!! 4y
Cinfhen Oh that‘s great @JanuarieTimewalker13 🧡welcome to #booked2019 📚📚📚 4y
JanuarieTimewalker13 Mahalo!!🌸 4y
