Here‘s my #orangebooks in support of Gun Violence Awareness Day in the US, @britt_brooke .

Gun violence are not as rampant in my country, though there‘s an increasing number of shooting cases in recent years. (According to the Arms Act and Firearms Act, using a gun for crimes is punishable by death while anyone caught in possession of firearms without a licence can be jailed up to 14 years and get 6 strokes of the cane.)

erzascarletbookgasm 🙏 to an end of gun violence. 1w

#riotgrams #stacksonstacks

Bit of a blank on this prompt so here is a photo of some French language books that I keep on top of one of my shelves plus a “stack” of foreign coins I‘ve been stuck with after various travels. I want to start reading more French language books as soon as I‘ve finished my #modernlibrarytop100 project.

(Missed yesterday due to going to bed early with a bad headache 😭)

Chrissyreadit I like this stack!!! 2w
Leftcoastzen Like your pretty French stack.❤️ 2w
twohectobooks @Leftcoastzen @Chrissyreadit thank you both! These are all books I acquired from various relatives. For some reason I haven‘t figured out yet, French books have their spines printed in the opposite direction to English books, so you have to lay them down on their covers to see the spines right side up. 2w

School is out for the summer! Which means I can now get started on my stack of books! I am currently reading "Bone Gap," have two books to pick up at the library, "The Sound of Gravel" on the way from Amazon, and these books to read for my classroom!

CoffeeNBooks Welcome to Litsy! 📚 Yay for summer break! I teach 12th grade English and AP Literature. #teachersoflitsy 2w
Johanna414 How fun! I‘m a middle high school librarian and the stack I take home every summer is pretty comparable... unfortunately I‘m in NY so I‘ve got another month to go! 😆 2w
Kaylamburson Welcome to Listy!!! Some of my favorites from that stack are Salt to the Sea (would prompt amazing discussions about little-known historical events/tragedies), The Program, and The Treatment (which are intense looks into depression and teen mental health)! Then, if you'd want a follow-up for teens to aid that mental health discussion, Don't Call Me Crazy would be perfect. 2w
WhatWouldJaneDo Welcome to Litsy! Enjoy all your summer reading, I've read a few from this stack and I think you have some good ones ahead! 2w
MrBook @KaraWines I got a degree in English instead of English Ed. Now I‘m a librarian. 😁 2w

KaraWines @baes Thanks! They are all new additions to my classroom library! 2w
RebL I hate to be a jerk and add to your already robust & beautiful stack, but Litsy is sort of the place for this kind of behavior. The tagged book is one of my favorites of 2019 for teens. 2w
Readergrrl Welcome! I‘m an English teacher too! I teach a variety of levels of 12th grade and I‘m also always looking for recommendations! 2w
Readergrrl What I love about teaching 12th grade is that we all share our books and my students give me as many ideas as I give them! Win win!!! 2w
KaraWines @CoffeeNBooks Awesome! I teach 10th grade, college composition 1 and 2, and creative writing! 2w
KaraWines @RebL Thanks! I'll add it to my list! 2w
KaraWines @Readergrrl Me as well! I buy way too many, but I just cannot stop! 2w

One of my best friends is moving to Liverpool next month (the traitor), so he asked if I wanted any of his books since he wasn't taking them... stupid question 😅
I have graphic novels or days now 😀 If I get through my latest picks for my #TBRChallenge I'll be getting a start on some of these methinks 😊
#Comics #DC #Marvel #AllTheBooks #GraphicNovels

shanaqui Ahhh, Civil War Captain America/Iron Man is heartbreaking, IIRC! Or... I might be thinking of Civil War Iron Man -- whichever one has Tony's confession to [spoiler]'s dead body.

I really need to try more Wonder Woman!
TrishB A wonderful place to move to 😁😁 3w

As some sort of bizarre coping mechanism, during the last couple weeks of classes I somehow brought home 30 LIBRARY BOOKS. Here are the ones that aren‘t picture books or currently on my mother‘s desk. (She wanted to read it. What can I say? I‘m an enabler.) Now that I‘m done with the semester I can actually maybe read some of them! But where to begin?

dragondrool I would be starting with the Kiernan. 1mo

Before I moved, I did a bit of a book #unhaul by donating books to my local library and selling a few to an independent used bookstore. Most of them I read and enjoyed, but I won‘t read them again and would rather someone else enjoy them. A couple of them I didn‘t read, but have lost interest in (I can always get them from the library if my interest is renewed).

MrBook #NiceStack! Wait, you just moved too? 1mo
