Home today which means it‘s Wednesday #ncbd...on a Saturday! Only two comics this week, Wonder Woman #79 and Pretty Violent #2. I added the tagged book because my son has been cranking through the series faster than I am! My pull list is shrinking, a couple comics having finished their runs etc..., so if there are any comic readers with suggestions about comics I should add, I‘d love to see them!

The BFG | Roald Dahl

Mehso-so

Book #79: The BFG is a children's book about a little girl who discovers a Big Friendly Giant (AKA the BFG). Along with the BFG, there are other giants who are not so friendly, well, because they eat people. The plot of the story is that the little girl convinces the BFG to take the bad giants down. I found this to be a rather gruesome story for a child...

#79 of my year! I aim to collect and read all of her books because they‘re so great. Going to go back towards the beginning and see what‘s been going on where I left off. This one is a Grant County series book number 3.

Caffeinated_Reader Dang. Karin Slaughter never disappoints. The whole story was heavy with suspense. The main focus wasn‘t really on Jeff & Sara which is a nice change of pace. And that ending. Holy hell. All and all another great read by this author. 4mo

The Queue | Basma Abdel Aziz

Thanks to @ReadingEnvy for recommending this one! I heard it on her podcast #79 and I found it interesting. I will admit that I have OD on dystopian fiction but it seems that The Queue comes at it from a different perspective like Station Eleven. I hope it is!

ReadingEnvy I think it has more similarities to Kafka than anything else...also hi! Thank you for listening. :) 1y
Kammbia1 @ReadingEnvy You are welcome. I was writing not that it is similar to Station Eleven but it comes at Dystopian Fiction from a different perspective. I have read a lot of dystopian fiction over the years and if there‘s a new angle or perspective then I‘m intrigued. 1y
TrishB What a cover 👍🏻 1y

ReadingEnvy @Kammbia1 totally... And it's another one that feels very present day, as if dystopia is just one bad decision aay.. 1y
Kammbia1 @TrishB It is an interesting cover. 1y
Kammbia1 @ReadingEnvy I got my hold from the library here in San Antonio for this novel. I will start reading it tomorrow. 😊👍🏿 1y

Last night we started a movement to boost Litsy in the App Store and Google Play by rating/reviewing.

Since then, 49 people have rated Litsy. The numerical equivalent has gone from 4.4 to 4.6. On the iPhone App Store, “our” rank in the Books category is oddly inconsistent. But on the iPad we‘re up to 28. And reading the reviews warms my heart!

Now if it can just attract new users! Pls take a minute and contribute your words to Litsy‘s future.

Ashley85 Just did! 2y
swishandflick I saw this too, yay! 2y
cariashley Done! What a great idea! I‘m seeing it at #74 on my iPhone (which is so weird, what on earth are the 73 apps ahead of it aside from the big obvious ones??) 2y

jfalkens Done on Android 😊 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @cariashley I agree! So many of the apps are weird little things that don‘t seem like they‘d have much to offer. The ranking on the iPhone has jumped all over the place since I‘ve been watching—allof 24 hours. I‘ve seen it as good as #67 and bad as #79. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Ashley85 @jfalkens Cool! 🙌🏻❤️💛💙 2y
Kimzey Done! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 2y
tpixie I‘ll go work on this! 2y

Craftylikefox Yay!!! This was the first thing I have rated on I tunes !!! I hope more friendly book lovers show up 😊 2y
GlassAsDiamonds Done - rated and reviewed (but in “my” App Store; Litsy only had 9 reviews? Such a strange system). 2y

2017 #79 self help audio I think this should be the go to gift for any graduate. It isn't that amazing but how Acuff sets it up makes common sense tangible. Yes don't burn bridges is a given but how to maintain those bridges is put in a context that makes sense. Weirdly timely and good for any stage of the employment game.
