When your friend sends you a postcard to make sure you've read the book she let you borrow 🤣 luckily a combo of finishing work early last week to read and slow post means I had read it first! #candybars #bandette #postcardclub @thegirlwiththelibrarybag

thegirlwiththelibrarybag It was so subtle 😂 2y

My lockdown power move is to lend graphic novels to friends and then sending them a postcard that references it...

I was looking forward to buying volumes 3 & 4 of Bandette but the publication dates have been pushed into 2021...

1. @bookriot but I had to wait for it to be available for Android devices.
2. Yes through my Goodreads challenge. I started a paper log as well but I've fallen behind 🙄
3. We'll Litsy certainly does, but I haven't been buying as much lately. Still book related social media definitely influences my reading choices.
4. It's a secret! Don't want to spoil anything for Group K #lmpbc readers.
@Chellebearss beautiful graphic!

Chellebearss I find Litsy and Library Thing have affected the books that I buy or borrow. I see things that are out of my comfort genres that I think I should try and end up loving 😀 4y

😀✒🖌📖❤ #GraphicNovel #Humor #GirlPower

This campy comic was a fun quick read with a plucky heroine/thief who loves books & art, has a crew of friends whom she pays with candy bars in exchange for help with her escapades, and a cheeky sense of humor❣

Nothing too serious here, just a fun filled little adventure.🤓

I tried to start this book last night, but Oscar found out I was eating Hot Chocolate Oreos, and he ambushed my cozy little reading area. ❤️

Finished the book in approximately 2hours. Fun read. The lead is a female thief, I hope Vol. 2 has more character development but over all a pick. This is my favorite frame of the book.

Just started this and would have finished it in one sitting but I'm exhausted. First graphic novel since high school and I'm loving it. Any suggestions for my next one?

AWahle Lumberjanes, Bitch Planet, Nimona, Chew, Sweet Tooth... depends on your interests, but I've enjoyed all of these. (And so many more) 5y

Vol 1-3. Francophile styled. About a teenaged charming plucky thief heroine who is always eating chocolate bars and has many devoted friends/helpers. It took me awhile to get into, when I did I loved it. I liked the main story of the last one the best. The urchin stories and the extras at the back of each book really help make it an enjoyable read.

Ekkross I adore bandette! I actually met the writer/artist duo at rose city comic con a couple of years ago. They are lovely. 5y

Why did this arrive shrink wrapped? 🤔

MCYmermaid Because there are stolen jewels inside? 😉 6y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @MCYmermaid, that's really the only acceptable reason 6y
Lindy It might be to prevent browsers from reading the whole thing instore and then not purchasing? I've seen shrink wrap a lot on new graphic novels. 6y

thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Lindy, but I bought it online! I can see how that could be a problem for bookstores tho... 6y
Lindy @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I think they come that way from the printer, or from the distributor. Our library acquisitions received some that way, before book processing was outsourced. 6y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Lindy, you're probably right. I'm just trying to de-plastic my life - and it's frustrating (much like book processing being outsourced! Did this happen to selection too?) 6y
[DELETED] 1409720085 Mine came that way as well. Amazing book though. 6y
Lindy @thegirlwiththelibrarybag Mass market paperback selection was outsourced about 5 years ago. I think the rest of the collection is still chosen by the acquisitions team. 6y
Chachic All graphic novels in bookstores here in Singapore are wrapped in plastic. In the Philippines, they do that to ALL books, sometimes they leave one copy open as the browsing copy. 6y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @emilydecato, good to hear! I've wanted to read it for ages - but only now have gotten round to buying it (Litsy has been very helpful in breaking down my slight resistance to graphic novels) 6y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Lindy, that's good to hear. I'm dreading such a thing happening where I work 6y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Chachic, is that to stop people browsing or to protect it from humidity? This is my first shrink wrapped book! 6y

This is a fun graphic novel with a retro style about Bandette, a cat burglar working both sides of the law in Paris.

HEY EVERYONE THIS COUNTRY HAS TURNED INTO A FASCIST STATE IN FOUR DAYS BECAUSE OF ALL THIS OPPRESSIVE EXECUTIVE OVERREACH FROM DONNIE so I've been reading this book to calm me down a little. Am so anxious. It's a cute book, and mimics francophone style. Bandette is the most adorable criminal you will ever meet. She will help you forget about the flaming dumpster fire that is happening in this country. For like a few minutes, at least.

And here are my #bookstats in all their glory.

#Litsy has really inspired me to power through and read more during traditionally slow months - when work annoyingly eats into my real/reading life.

Thanks for the booknerd support, team!

RanaElizabeth Princess and Mr Whiffle! So amazing! There is video somewhere on the webs of Rothfuss reading it and then going back and pointing out the "things" that weren't quite what they seemed. 6y
elkeOriginal @RanaElizabeth Loved that book! I will go find that video! Now I need to get book 2...😁 6y
[DELETED] 1409720085 So many greats! Seriously though, Bandette is a new favorite! 6y
elkeOriginal @emilydecato Yes! I just handsold Bandette to a coworker - a completely unsolicited recommendation whether she wanted to hear about it or not! 6y

Another recommendation from @brownekr! Lighthearted amd quick, but with an interesting tension/threat of harm beneath the surface. Definitely going to pick up the next volume.

brownekr I love these a lot--I find them really visually interesting, and the tension you mention between stylish fun and real harm continues to be (for me) balanced well. 6y

My new love = Bandette.
Such a charming thief with her band of urchin helpers and her dog Pimento. Bandette is fearless and crazy talented at thievery and amusing quips. Even her rivals seem to admire her - when not trying to assassinate her! ADORE the illustration style. And looking forward to the next adventure filled with daredevil stunts, close calls, and candy!

MCYmermaid Moi aussi!! 6y

At ECCC last year I got to meet and actually have an extended conversation with Colleen Coover & Paul Tobin. Colleen impressed the hell outta me when she named the Dewey for comics.

A fun, light graphic novel about a fearless, whimsical cat burglar. Set in Paris, Bandette claims she is the greatest thief in a world where heists and criminals are notorious.
