A favourite but I didn‘t managed to snap a pic and I‘m in the office now 😅 Just found an old one stacked up during my book haul in Bangkok 😅 #1990s #artfulaugust @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs

It caught him back to the dreadful moment in the lodge when, raising himself up from Rainer‘s side, he had looked at his hands and seen that they were red…

Scores from Springwood Little Free Library on Saturday just gone. I came across it on the way to watch my niece perform. Not as good as the ones back home.

Does anyone know more about this #BOTM alternative? The set up sounds similar: books are chosen the first of each month and you pick one and can choose two additional books. Ships to the US AND Canada! The US price is $17.99 for the monthly book plus $9.99 for each add-on. Canada price is a bit different. I think they‘re starting in September. Seriously considering it…

vivastory Have you heard of Boxwalla? They ship every other month & have 3 different paperback books to select from, plus 1 pre-selected book. I have been pretty happy with their choices. They tend to focus on international lit fic. Going to tag their choices for the Aug box, so you have an idea of what they offer. The book that comes with any of the choices is 5d

Jas16 I have been toying with a book subscription for ages and then looking at my stacks of unread books and promptly talking myself out of it. Aardvark does look intriguing though. I may have to give it a go. 5d
Chelsea.Poole I don‘t know about this but I love the branding! 5d
Cinfhen No, but like @Jas16 @Chelsea.Poole very intrigued! Also the subscription that @vivastory mentioned 😁Except unless any of them ship overseas to Israel it‘s become too difficult to get my books sent over in a timely or costly manner 😔 5d
Jess Thanks for the heads up. I joined the mailing list so we will see. 4d
Hooked_on_books @vivastory August will be my third boxwalla! I found over the last couple years that I‘m really appreciating translated lit and this subscription is really affordable. I‘m enjoying it so far! (Though their website for picking your box after you initially subscribe leaves a lot to be desired.) 4d
vivastory @Hooked_on_books I agree about the site! I find it confusing. I actually emailed their support about it yesterday. 4d
Megabooks @vivastory @Hooked_on_books thanks for the heads up! I‘m not as much a fan of paperback as I am of hardcover, but I am enjoying more literature in translation lately as well. I‘m going to keep my eye on this and strongly consider it. 4d
Megabooks @Jas16 I‘ve enjoyed having BOTM on and off for 6 years. I prefer subscription boxes that are just books, as I usually don‘t end up using the other things. I‘m interested to see what books aardvark ends up primarily thinking because BOTM has been a bit thriller/romance heavy for me lately. 4d
Megabooks @Chelsea.Poole it is cool! 4d
Megabooks @Cinfhen I know in the pandemic it has been much harder than in the past. I wish more boxes shipped internationally WITHOUT prohibitive expense. 4d
Megabooks @Jess yeah, I think it‘s worth a look. 👀 4d
ICantImReading Oooh… I‘m intrigued! Thank you, I subscribed to the mailing list, too! 4d
Megabooks @ICantImReading I‘m so interested to see what it will be like! 3d

A coming of age novel that I was really looking forward to reading. Nine girls navigate their hopes and dreams against a backdrop of a scandal at the boarding school. The girls discover their voices and their power. The story shifted perspectives several times and the intriguing start had me hooked. But I started to get lost halfway, forgot the characters names and wanted to give up. I persevered til the end but forgettable.

Fabulous book about getting to know kids on their own terms. It teaches important lessons about micro aggressions without being at all heavy handed, or ever even using that term.

mandarchy We both reviewed this the same day! I think I like this book even more now. 5d

A list of questions that prompts conversations about microaggressions and getting to know someone. How does it feel to be asked the same questions. Do we have a right to know the answer? Will the answer change your relationship to that person? What can we say instead?
