Invisible Cities | Italo Calvino

Pickpick

Reread for my #lmpbc book for our translations #groupl group. Even better than I remembered. Gorgeous, surreal prose that makes you think about place and humanity in new ways.

Sending this out soon!

I wanted to sincerely apologize to the members of the #LMPBC #groupL members for the lack of posts and news. 😳😢 I had received the latest book some time ago, but managed to put it away and only recently found it. I know the next round has already started, but I will return it back, upon completion, with my comments. Thank you for letting me participate @suvata @Kayla.Adriena @Skeebies05 @shellleigh33 #backonLitsy #stillabookworm

Kayla.Adriena @ruskigurl16 Ohhhhh trust me no need to apologize! I have set us back since we started! No worries . It took me forever to get through Elegance of the Hedgehog 5d
ruskigurl16 @Kayla.Adriena thanks for the reassurance. Strangely enough, I suspect I am going to love this book. ❤️😁 5d
Skeebies05 No worries! Life happens, ladies!! ❤️❤️ 5d

Any ideas on what the missing books will be? Maybe they were already chosen and I missed the post. Just checking. No big hurry. We still have a couple weeks left.

Chili I‘m going with Invisible by Paul Auster 1mo
suvata @Chili Cool. I will update the graphic. Good choice too. 1mo
suvata Graphic has been updated 1mo

Hello #groupl for #round7 of #lmpbc! Here are a few works in translation I‘ve been eyeing for a while. The tagged book is a collection of short stories; Memory Police is nominated for the National Book Award this year; the other two have been hanging around my TBR for a long time because they sound really interesting. Let me know your thoughts; I‘ve tagged the others below. Excited for this round! @rachelm @lele1432 @Carolyn11215

Carolyn11215 The Memory Police sounds amazing! 1mo
rachelm Ditto Memory Police! 1mo
lele1432 I was thinking of doing Things We Lost in the Fire as an option myself, so I'm really interested in that one! But Memory Police sound amazing as well! 1mo
aeeklund @lele1432 You could still pick Things We Lost in the Fire, if you want! I‘ll go for Memory Police. (Cc: @Carolyn11215 & @rachelm ) 1mo
lele1432 Sounds good!! 1mo

#groupl #lmbpc Here are some options! I haven‘t read Cosmicomics, but I usually love Calvino (Italian). That‘s a short story collection. Kitchen and Volcano are novels translated from Japanese. Kitchen is more contemporary and Volcano is more philosophical. Pyongyang is a graphic memoir translated from French about an artist working in North Korea. I‘ve tagged them all!

lele1432 These are all so interesting! I think I'm leaning towards Calvino. I've had Invisible Cities on my TBR for a little while, and Cosmicomics sounds just as good. But I'm also intrigued by Kitchen! 1mo
Carolyn11215 I‘ve read Kitchen many years ago and remember really liking it but that‘s all I can remember about it! :) I‘m a fan of Calvino and never stumbled across this book of his so that‘s probably my first choice. Would be happy with any of the others though! 1mo
aeeklund I've been meaning to read Calvino for so long, but never have, and this book sounds really intriguing! The others also sound good, if there's a different one calling to you. 1mo
rachelm @aeeklund @Carolyn11215 @lele14 I started the Cosmicomics and it is ... weird. I dug around and found my old copy of Invisible Cities (which I loved) and will send that instead 1mo
Carolyn11215 Great! 1mo
aeeklund @rachelm Perfect!! 1mo

#LMPBC Round 7 - #GroupL
@suvata @sprainedbrain @Chili @thebluestocking

I‘m so excited to start a new round with new people and new books. If y‘all don‘t mind, I would like to pick The Dutch House by Ann Patchett. If that‘s OK, here‘s what our group looks like so far. if anyone objects, there are plenty of books that I can change it to. No problem.

Chili Looks good. Eep! I have to figure out a book. 1mo
sprainedbrain Sounds great to me! I will figure out mine tonight. 🙂 1mo
thebluestocking Works for me! The Dutch House is definitely on my TBR. 1mo

I‘m probably jumping the gun, but here are some book suggestions for #literaryfiction #GroupL #lmpbc #round7. I went with backlist titles from female writers.

Let me know what you think, ladies. 💙
@suvata @sprainedbrain @chili

sprainedbrain I love that you‘ve done this already! I‘ve read The Accidental fairly recently, but I would be happy with any of the other 3. If I had to choose one, I think 1mo
Chili I haven‘t read any of them. The Visit from the Goon Squad has been on my TBR list forever. Any of them would be an excellent choice. 1mo
suvata I‘m interested in reading some Sally Rooney. 1mo

Reading on my lunch break, while wishing I was at home snuggled up with this book on my couch. I‘m really enjoying this #LMPBC #groupL #round6 book so far.
