#TBRtemptation post 3! Definitely worthy of your coffee table! Wow! What a gorgeous book inside and out! Five classic mysteries that epitomize 1920s crime fiction. Beautifully printed with commentaries. Are you a mystery fan, a 1920s fan, a pretty book fan? This looks awesome! #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

Silver Mirror opined that a country that has reached the age of wisdom would stop building monuments to the warmongers of its history, but rather erect them for its peacemakers, those who saved lives by preventing the course of events from descending into a time of sword and fire.
—from “The Virtue of Unfaithful Translations” by Minsoo Kang

I started this collection of speculative fiction last night, and am really enjoying it so far. I couldn‘t NOT pick it up at the library—it has an intro by Levar Burton, and the epigraph (from which the title is drawn) is a quote by Octavia Butler: “There‘s nothing new under the sun, but there are new suns.”

Yes, please!

Eyelit Ooh, I just saw that at the library today and almost picked it up... but I‘m already close to my limit for check outs. So I added it to my for later shelf. Looking forward to your review! 😄 3d

#lmpbc Group S, it looks like these are our picks so far! ( @suvata this is a great idea!) Looking forward to rounding out our list!

jb72 @Hestapleton @Kaylamburson @Stacypatrice - I will gather my book suggestions as soon as I get my chickens fed. 5d
Kaylamburson Amazing!!! I can't wait!! And real chickens?? Or is that a metaphor? Ha! @jb72 5d
Hestapleton @jb72 girl no rush! We have tons of time. Also, I love that you have chickens! I think they‘re so fun. :) 5d
jb72 @Kaylamburson Yep I have 13 chickens. They are a lot of fun. @Hestapleton They are all so cute and very chatty. 5d
Kaylamburson That's so cool!! I don't see a lot of that here in NYC 🤣😂 @jb72 5d

Hello people of #lmpbc Group S! So excited to start reading some horror with all of you. Here are some ideas I‘m kicking around. I‘ve read HEX before, but loved it would totally read again. Anything catching your eye or anything you want to avoid? Note: my copies of CUJO and THE EXORCIST are mass market paperbacks if it matters. Link and TW in comments!

Hestapleton TW: body horror and animal violence 5d
Hestapleton TW: animal violence and possible child violence? 5d
jb72 Any of those sound fine to me (I‘ve not read any of them). I have been wanting to read 5d

Hestapleton TW Body horror—loosely based on real-life killer Albert Fish 5d
Hestapleton TW: cannibals 5d
Hestapleton TW: possession and body horror 5d
Hestapleton @jb72 awesome! 👍🏼👍🏼 5d
Kaylamburson I haven't read any of these! I would say my preference would be Brother, Alienist (although will I ever be able to walk out of my NYC apartment again?! Haha), or The Exorcist. 5d
Kaylamburson Although looks like The Alienist is almost 500 pages 😮 5d
Hestapleton @Kaylamburson SWEET BABY JESUS IT DOESNT LOOK THAT THICK. We can definitely shelve that one away for length issues lol 5d
Kaylamburson Bahaha, I'm just basing that on what Goodreads says, but it could be wrong! 5d
Hestapleton @Kaylamburson yeah I checked my copy and it‘s just around 500. Thin pages. 😬 (edited) 5d
Stacypatrice I read “The Exorcist “ but none of the others. All look great!! Bloody fun!!! 5d
Hestapleton @Kaylamburson @jb72 @Stacypatrice I‘m leaning towards BROTHER since it seems like we all haven‘t read it and it fits lengthwise. Any objections? 5d
jb72 @Hestapleton sounds good! I‘ve read her book Seed which was very good. 5d

A special, surprising thing happened yesterday as I drove from Denver (where I'd been on vacation) to central Kansas (to visit one of my best friends). I unexpectedly passed Nicodemus, Kansas, so I U-turned to visit. Then I remembered I bring too many books on road trips, and I had this in my trunk. Cue me rereading the final scene where it took place and the unexpected highlight of my trip.

Cinfhen Love that!!!!! 1w

“Admittedly, art is somewhat like spit. It does not repulse or even worry is while it is still inside of us, but once it exits our body, it becomes disgusting.”
