Am planning to buy this as a gift. Then I realized this mega list of reccos can be useful for #LitWorld2018GB & #readaroundtheworld titles.

While not all countries are listed, it's still a time saver. Lovely to recognize names I've recently learnt, to unearth more writers, who never turned up on other searches. Bigger thrill when their books are available!
Popular Varga Llosa was not mentioned for #Peru, proving so many writers to be discovered.

GatheringBooks oh wow! looks like a book i MUST have! 2y
BookishMe @GatheringBooks 👍🏽👍🏽 Nancy Pearl's Book Lust series ensure infinite TBR ;D 2y

RachelO 😂😂Think we're all eyeing this one now! I'm still waiting for Lost City Radio to arrive from the other end of the county - my reservation had 'technical issues!!' - but I agree that books being available are a major cause for celebration! 2y
RachelO BUT what's the Book Lust series? 2y
RachelO @BookishMe OK - thanks - had assumed it was a TV/radio show or something. Will see if I can find them anywhere 2y
BookishMe @RachelO that's the first title, followed by 'More Book Lust'. You're right about the thrill of available books - euphoria on loop ;D 2y
BookishMe @RachelO I borrow it from Overdrive... Should get hold of the physical copy one day 2y

Being a somewhat rude foreigner by drinking my Hojicha frappuccino on the train en route to babe's music class. But since he's snoozing, I'm researching books for my #passportlitsy itinerary. Thanks, @steverogers! #challenge #tbr #mommyreads

After our bookclub in #NYC, @BookBabe and I stopped by the bookstore on the way home 😆👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻, since it's now an hour and a half away 🙄. So, I've restocked my photos with glorious titles for upcoming #TBRtemptation posts 😁👍🏻👍🏻! Hope you enjoy them!

Richryan52 @BookBabe if you can make it into the mysterious that would be great. Have you ever seen the rare book room in the basement? 2y
BookBabe @Richryan52 the owner is holding out on us! He didn't tell us about it. But now we know, thanks for the tip! We do adore the rare book room at the Strand. We'd love to make it to your signing... @mrbook is working a later shift, so we definitely wouldn't make it on time. (edited) 2y
Richryan52 @BookBabe better late than never would love to meet you both 2y

I received the best action figure of all time in the mail today! Obviously a close second would be My Dinner With Andre action figures.

aeeklund I love that she's an action figure. SO MUCH! She's local and comes into our bookstore all the time. She's just the sweetest person. 2y
vivastory @aeeklund That's awesome! It would be a blast to go book shopping with her. I think I'd be broke afterwards. 2y
ReadingEnvy In my library at work I have her, lego librarian, Giles from Buffy, and always looking for more 2y

vivastory @ReadingEnvy That's wonderful. There should be more bookworm action figures! Have you heard of the Vonnegut stuffed figures? 2y
vivastory @readingenvy There are action figures for Shakespeare, Austen & Poe on Amazon. 2y
ReadingEnvy @vivastory oh I stick with actual librarians for now 2y

#maybookflowers day 29: #inmemoriam
My husband's grandmother passed away last week in Singapore. She was in her 90s and when we saw her last July, she was bedridden but still had a big smile. Her ashes were scattered at sea as she had wanted to sail the seven seas and that made me sad as I'm not sure that she traveled out of Singapore and Malaysia. So in her memory, a stack of books from some different countries that she may have liked to visit.

LauraBrook How sweet! I'm sorry for your loss, she sounds like a wonderful lady with a great spirit. 💖 2y
LeahBergen Lovely. 💗💗💗 2y

I got into an interesting conversation at work about libraries and Readers Advisory. What does your library do to promote RA? #LibrarianLitten #TalkingshopbecauseIloveit

JEMoutrageous I have no idea what Readers Advisory is. Please explain. 3y
