#ReadingTheAmericas2023

With a jumpstart in December last year I now have read 6 books for the challenge:
▪️USA - Ocean State
▪️Puerto Rico - Olga Dies Dreaming
▪️Paraguay- H(a)ppy
▪️Mexico - My Volcano
▪️Greenland - An African in Greenland
▪️El Salvador - The She-Devil in the Mirror

So I‘ve made a first dent in the 48 countries to be read!

This was so much fun. I'm always intrigued by what it's like to work with books from perspectives other than mine (as a public librarian), and this was so flippin' charming. I'm not being condescending, it was simply lovely. Highly recommend.

Thanks to #wwnorton for the #arc.

This was a great listen. Read by the author, it explores the history of his own book lust, his time working in and frequenting various bookshops in the Bay Area. He packs in a ton of history about book selling, book binding, early writing to publishing, libraries, renowned sellers and the future of reading and books themselves. I particularly enjoyed that with later releases he includes (2 in this edition) updates on the state of the trade. 4⭐️

This was my #doublespin for Jan, finished this weekend. It's a deep dive into data analytics of literature - classics, modern, popular fiction, fan fiction. Really engaging and surprisingly funny. @TheAromaofBooks

Some of these works of art are really beautiful. It was a fun idea to compile these images from various time periods on the same topic into a book. The diversity of the subject was limited to age. It would have been more interesting if the author had included more current artwork with subjects of women of color and women of different religions besides Christianity.

An annual re-read for me. It's a perfect book, in my opinion.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
