Okay, #GroupQ! I thought a novelette that‘s won the Shirley Jackson Award would be fun, so I picked four that stood out to me. Most are part of collections, which I‘ll link in the comments; the Neil Gaiman is a stand-alone. Let me know if one or more of them sound best to you!! #LMPBC

1. Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains, Neil Gaiman
2. “The Summer People,” Kelly Link
3. “Help the Witch,” Tom Cox
4. “Reeling for the Empire,” Karen Russell

shadowspeak17 I actually read Get in Trouble earlier this year, but I‘d be good with any of the other three. :) 1w
Linsy @shadowspeak17 Good to know, striking off the list! 1w
JenlovesJT47 I‘d love to read the Neil Gaiman one but I haven‘t read any of these so I‘m okay with whatever. 1w
Bookwormjillk I haven‘t read any so I‘m good with all of them. 1w
Linsy Okay team, @JenlovesJT47 and I are leaning towards the Neil Gaiman, and as you two said you don‘t have any prefs, except that one has already read the Kelly Link, I say Neil Gaiman it is! I can‘t wait to start reading and sharing with y‘all!! @Bookwormjillk @shadowspeak17 1w
shadowspeak17 Sounds good! :) 1w
JenlovesJT47 Yay! 🤗 1w

Do you like short stories and novellas? If you do, you should join #lmpbc #groupq! 😄 One of our group members is no longer able to participate, so we wanted to see if there is a US litten who would like to take her place. If interested in joining us, please leave a comment! We‘d love to have a fourth person in our group! 😊

(I‘ll tag the books we‘ve selected in the comments.)

suvata It‘s a busy time of year coming up so it‘s just perfect for a short stories and novellas. I hope you‘re able to get a fourth. 2w
Linsy I love short stories and novellas. I‘d be interested!! 2w
ljuliel Nope 👎🏼. I like to get to know the characters really well, and you rarely ever do if it‘s just a snippet of a story. 2w
shadowspeak17 @Linsy Awesome! 😃 Do you know how the #lmpbc works and everything? 2w
Linsy Yes, I think so. We each pick a book in our category and share with notes and everything and then share it with the next person in our group? Then they kind of cycle? 2w
shadowspeak17 @Linsy Yep, you got it! Can you email me your mailing address please

What do you guys think of these? I wasn‘t sure if you all would want to read any short story collections since they‘re a little longer and we‘re doing “quick reads,” so I included a few in case you guys are interested, but if not, that‘s cool too. 😊 #GroupQ #lmpbc

JenlovesJT47 Ooh ooh!!! I vote for The Birds!! 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ one of my favorite movies and has been on my TBR forever! That is if it‘s cool with you guys 🤓 1mo
JenlovesJT47 I‘m cool with any of those, haven‘t read any of them. 1mo

shadowspeak17 What do you think @laurenslibrary ? 1mo
LaurensLibrary I'm fine with any of them. I'm not picky. 😊 1mo
shadowspeak17 @JenlovesJT47 @Bookwormjillk Hey, so if you guys saw Lauren‘s email, she‘s no longer going to be able to participate in lmpbc this round. So I just wanted to see what you guys want to do. Do you want to do it just the three of us or try to find someone to fill her spot or not do the round after all? What do y‘all think? 2w
Bookwormjillk @JenlovesJT47 @shadowspeak17 I‘d still like to do the round either with three of us or with a replacement 2w
JenlovesJT47 I‘m cool with either option, whatever you want to do! @Bookwormjillk 2w
shadowspeak17 Okay, well I think I‘ll make a post tomorrow then to see if anyone would like to fill her spot, and if there are no takers we can just do it with the three of us. @JenlovesJT47 @Bookwormjillk 2w
JenlovesJT47 Sounds good! 2w

#LMPBC #groupQ @laurenslibrary @Bookwormjillk (I still can‘t tag Stacy_31😕)

I don‘t want to send out any spoilers for my group. This was a book that I would never have read, but glad I did. I learned about a time and place and people that I knew nothing about. Thanks Lauren. I will try to get this in the mail today, but latest will be Tuesday because of the holiday. 2/5⭐️s

LaurensLibrary I still haven't received the book I was supposed to receive for August. 2mo
Wife @laurenslibrary @Bookwormjillk Oh no! Did you get my book Jill? I still have the tracking receipt from the PO. I haven‘t been able to tag @Stacy_31 when I‘ve posted. I hope everyone is still participating. I‘ll wait for responses before mailing Lauren‘s book. 2mo
Bookwormjillk I got your book and mailed mine to Stacy last month. Finishing up Maid this weekend and will mail Tuesday. 2mo
