Going with titles instead of covers for #readingresolutions #green—I have a lot of “green” titles on my shelves! The tagged is a short, intriguing little sci-fi book I remember reading as a kid. It‘s an account of a group of refugees fleeing our dying planet and trying to survive on the planet they call Shine. There‘s a neat little twist at the end.
Starting with one of the shorter books from my stack for the #throwbackreadathon. The #LittleDude is bright eyed and bushy tailed right now so I‘m reading it aloud to him while we snuggle. Hopefully he‘ll doze off soon but until then, he‘s the cutest reading buddy on the block.
I know it's become hugely popular, but when I first started reading post-apocalyptic & dystopian fiction at the tender age of seven in the late 1980s, it was definitely #notyournormalgenre.... & to be fair, I still read more of it than the average reader. #whatcanisay #imdarkandtwistylikethat #thisshelfismissingabouttenfavesthatareoutonloan #alsomissingmykindlebooksfromthissubgenre
I can't believe the Lincoln County School District of Newport, Oregon marked this incredible #speculative book OUTDATED. This book is a gem & they were fools to discard it. That said, I'm glad they did so I could snag this #usedbook find via Amazon because now it is has a loving home where it is appreciated. Same edition my mother read me as a child. #booksarefriends #sciencefictionforchildren #iseriouslyLOVEthisbook #itwasmy1stspeculativefiction
