#The2030SomethingBookClub

Another meeting of #The2030SomethingBookClub in the archives! Most everyone really enjoyed the tagged book for today. I‘m so happy I listened to the audiobook—the narrator is excellent and draws the emotions out better. Very funny book that had a few members crying by the end. We‘re all getting tired of these Zoom meetings though *sighs*—been doing them on Zoom since March of last year. 😕

BookishMarginalia Let‘s hope more people get vaccinated so we can get to herd immunity in the US. 2y
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 I‘m less than 100 pages from the end of this book. I‘ve enjoyed a lot of it, but I‘m feeling quite bored with it now. I‘m too close to the end to bail on it, but I wish I had that “can‘t put it down, gonna be so sad when it‘s over” sort of feeling. 2y
TheBookHippie I‘m so over the ZOOM 😝 2y

MrBook @BookishMarginalia 🙂👍🏻👍🏻 @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 , it had a magnificent start, didn‘t it?! Most folks thought it wraps up nicely 🙂. @TheBookHippie , I hear ya—ALL my bookclubs are clamoring to be in-person again! 🤓 2y
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @MrBook I loved a line from one of the first pages in the book. Something about how a hearts are like bars of soap. I don‘t remember it exactly now, but I liked it enough to share it with my husband (who didn‘t get it at all) as well as here. It‘s on my profile as something I shared somewhat recently, if you‘re interested finding the exact line I‘m talking about. 1y
MrBook @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 , thank you! I‘ll take a look! 🙂 1y

Today‘s meeting of #The2030SomethingBookClub was a fantastic success 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Two dozen members had a great back-&-forth about the weaknesses and merits they found in this multi-generational historical fiction tome! The best discussions seem to occur when the group is evenly split in their like and dislike for a selection 😆. Jolly good fun! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 #NYC

I had two glorious #NYC #bookclub meetings today 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻: #The2030SomethingBookClub and #The2030SomethingLongReadsBookClub! The first one was Dan Simmons‘s “Drood”, and the second was TEotH, a great, and rare, re-read for me 😊.

We met in Central Park by the Museum of Natural History and Hayden Planetarium (overseen by Neil deGrasse Tyson). Pitch perfect day to talk books outdoors!

We all stayed afterward for drinks in the Park. 🍻

Lcsmcat I loved Hedgehog! 3y

We‘ve wrapped up another wonderful meeting of #The2030SomethingBookClub 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! It was marvelous! This book provided plenty of conversation fodder if any book club organizers out there are looking for a selection to feature at an upcoming meeting. I give the book 4.5 stars. 👍🏻👍🏻

Have you read this novel?!

Karisa We read it for #botmbuddyread here on Litsy a few months back. Lots of great discussion to be had with Dores, Graca, and Carmen Miranda's life too! Glad your group enjoyed it too.😊 4y

Our latest #The2030SomethingBookClub poll has closed! @BookBabe and I ask everyone for a couple suggestions, and then we narrow them down to 12–since that‘s the max options Meetup allows for polls—and then everyone who wants to vote chooses however many of the selections they want 😁! We‘re very democratic, so no one can yell at the 2 of us for what gets read. 😆

What do you think about the top five winners? Which ones would you have voted for?

Peddler410 My eyes are too old to read that image! Now, if Litsy had a way to click and enlarge images .... well, then I could give you an answer. 4y
TiredLibrarian The winners are good picks! I would have voted for Sophie's World; it sounds interesting and I've been meaning to read it forever. 4y

As one #NYC bookclub wraps up, another one will soon commence! Next up, #The2030SomethingBookClub. The selection is the delightful one above ☝🏻 😁. 65 have RSVP'ed for today 😱! @Apinlibraryland has stepped up to help since @BookBabe will be joining us by phone instead of actually being here. Might have to split up into 2 groups.

CouronneDhiver Awesome! That‘s a great “problem” to have 4y
Magdawrites So bummed I couldn‘t make it! Were there really 65 people??? 4y
MrBook @CouronneDhiver Aye 😁🍻! Apparently, everyone likes the bookclub ☺️. @Magdawrites We missed yooouuu 😩! No, 37 attended, but that's still overflowing, lol. We wound up with all 4 tables and a whole lot of the high bar chairs. It went so smoothly, we have the *best* membership! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4y
EH2018 Interesting! Theres an nyc book club??? More info please! 4y

At the end of #The2030SomethingBookClub, Rebecca, who came for her first meeting ???????(!!!), asked us hesitantly, "Are you MrBook & @BookBabe ?" ?????????????! She's been a Litten for a year now ????????! She doesn't post regularly, but you can find this terrific Litten at @ThePurpleSponge . Sooooo wonderful to meet Littens when we're out ☺️. She's wonderful to have for book club discussions ?????. #LitsyPhotoOp

MrBook @Apinlibraryland Anything you for you, you know that ☺️🙌🏻. FYI for everyone: @Apinlibraryland was the creator of the marvelous #The2030SomethingBookClub before @BookBabe and I took the reins. This Litten is AWESOME! (edited) 5y
