So I‘ve discovered a game that works like Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity, but the twist is, your responses come not from cards dealt to you, but from whatever book you have on hand. So I thought I‘d see if folks are into playing virtually 😊 Here‘s the first prompt: to play, submit a quote —one word, a phrase, a sentence, a paragraph— from a book you‘re reading, that answers the prompt. Mine in the comments! #bringyourownbook #BYOBook

kgriffith My entry: “You‘ve got that shit!” 2w
TK-421 I love this idea! Here‘s mine: “You‘ll go a long way.” 2w
kgriffith @TK-421 Nice one! Love that book so, even more now with the miniseries 😊 2w

#fallintobooks Day 13 - Guilty
Even though I collect these books as a joke from the $1 paperback section of the Thrift store I still feel #guilty having such ridiculous things on my shelves. It's a real laugh using them to play bring your own book, pretty much the sole reason I collect them!

It's taking me a long time to read this novel, but I'm really enjoying it!! An academic vampire novel? How could I not?

so I'm still figuring litsy out. Any hashtags or features discussion tags you've found that are fun or particularly active??

sara.the.librarian I love this book! Seriously one of my favorite books of all time. It's hard to explain it to people though since the main character is never named! 😅 2y
thebookdiviner I also adore this book! Kostova is such an interesting writer. And I'm with @sara.the.librarian - legit have no idea how to explain it to other people 😂 2y

sara.the.librarian @thebookdiviner For real! Saying things like "And then the main character does ..." or "The main character meets so-and-so" will get you some off looks. When I met my best friend in college (she too has already read the Historian) and we were bonding over books, I mentioned how weird it is that we never find out her name and I watched this slow realization and horror spread over her face. I think she gave her name somewhere along the lines. Haha. 2y
thebookdiviner 😂😂 I do that when I can't pronounce someone's name in a book, just make up my own name for them. Totally! And even giving basic descriptions doesn't really work, because it's a vampire book, but not really; it's historical fiction, but also not really. It's just all over the place but in a really good way @sara.the.librarian 2y
sara.the.librarian @thebookdiviner Totally agree! It's so good that I can forgive it being impossible to explain! 2y
Atasteforbooks @thebookdiviner @sara.the.librarian that's part of why I like it!! It's hard to pin down and refuses to be easily or neatly categorized! (edited) 2y
