Joining! @Andrew65

Ironically, I decided to go solo camping this weekend to get away and read, without even knowing this was happening. Got quite a bit done already, so here‘s what I hope for the rest of the week:
1.) Finish: Kaikeyi (#bookspin)
2.) Finish: Eleanor & Park
3.) Start & finish: Perfect Shot (#doublespin)
4.) Start: The Magdalen Girls (book club pick)

I just realized I never posted my May #bookspin TBR or the bingo board. So, here it is, all late. Lol. The picture isn't that great, but it's gonna have to do for now.

The Big Book of Science Fiction | Jeff VanderMeer, Ann VanderMeer

My #BookSpin for May was a story from The Big Book of Science Fiction. If the spinning wheel of book fate keeps this up I'll have this 1160-page book finished in no time! ha! This month's story was Mechanopolis from 1913 by Miguel de Unamuno; translated from Spanish. It's a very short story. A man travels to a world where there are no humans, just machines. ⬇


DrexEdit Cut off from all human contact, he loses his sanity. When he finally escapes back to earth he resumes his life devoid of all de-humanizing machines. Yeah, the author's point of view is crystal clear. 3 ⭐

I shall pick my #DoubleSpin short story from this book of Latin American stories I just happen to have checked out from the library. Can't imagine I won't find a good story to read here!

I just realised I haven‘t posted my May #Bookspin #Doublespin & #BookspinBingo list yet! I‘m really hoping to read at least one of these, though more would be better. My Reading Mojo had best be back quick smartish or I‘m gonna lose my mind real soon.😵‍💫

Cinfhen What‘s going on???? You‘ve been quiet or I‘ve just been missing your posts!! 1d
Lizpixie @Cinfhen hi lovely👋I‘ve been quiet for the last month or so, still struggling with memory & concentration issues due to post Covid syndrome. It‘s taken away my reading Cindy! Pisses me off that my only way to de-stress & relax is gone. Praying it‘s only temporary🙏 1d
BarbaraBB Wishing you that much needed recovery ❤️‍🩹 1d
Cinfhen Oh no, that‘s terrible. Sending you loads of good vibes and best wishes for a quick & complete recovery 💕💕💕 1d
TheAromaofBooks Never too late to BookSpin!! Hope you are feeling better soon. It's amazing how long recovery can take sometimes and it's hard to be patient!!! 19h

Raw visual poetry about loneliness, love, how the two might intersect, and the wildness of life. It‘s quite sad, and I see myself in some of these images when my mental health is taking a turn…. I felt connected to this in that way. #foundonlitsy #bookspinbingo #doublespin

I‘m excited about the #MiddleGradeMay readathon this weekend! I‘ll be reading from the above choices—or maybe some others depending on my mood. 😁

I like the idea of reading the three across the bottom…with a midnight & magic theme! Especially because Midnight Magic is my May #DoubleSpin. Door in the Wall may help me to a #BookSpinBingo, though, and Akata Woman will need to go back to the library soon, so I‘ll just see where my reading takes me!

SpeculativeFemale I absolutely LOVED Akata Woman. One of my favorites of what I've read so far this year, for sure. 2d
megnews Great line up! 2d
