Glory | NoViolet Bulawayo

When you haven‘t visited the bookstore in awhile, this happens.

I regret nothing

DivineDiana As you should. 👏🏻 5mo
JamieArc I‘ve heard a lot of good things about Glory. 5mo
squirrelbrain And why not?! I have the Ellmann on my physical TBR shelf as I have a subscription to #galleybeggarpress (see my recent post!). @JamieArc - I too have heard good things about Glory but I worry it sounds a bit weird for me… I‘ll await your review Anne! 5mo
Brimful Just started Glory myself! Going well so far! 5mo
Cathythoughts I‘m interested in Glory too 👍🏻❤️ 5mo

Insignificance | James Clammer
post image

My first #galleybeggarpress book and it was a good one!

Clammer is a YA writer and this is his first adult novel. It follows a day in the life of Joseph, who is a plumber. It‘s an unusual style, with an omniscient narrator. The book starts in a kind of Everyman suburbia with some very detailed, specific descriptions but soon grows to encompass some big themes such as mental illness and religion.

And my favourite bookmark ever!

squirrelbrain This is my #doublespin book for August @TheAromaofBooks 1y
Megabooks That is a great bookmark!! 😂 1y

Things Are Against Us | Lucy Ellmann

Very exciting #bookmail today! @Moray_Reads posted a little while ago about Galley Beggar Press and I signed up to their buddy subscription. I didn‘t expect to receive *two* books on the same day!

Both sound really intriguing and I loved Ellman‘s Ducks, Newburyport so very much looking forward to these.

Loving the bookmarks too….

Thanks Moray for the heads-up! 😁


TrishB I need to have a look just to get that bookmark! 1y
TrishB Well both to be honest! 1y
squirrelbrain I nearly tagged you @TrishB ! ? Actually, I think it‘s a fab concept - (e0 for 4 books! @Oryx - might be up your street too, as I know you‘re enjoying Ducks. 1y

BarbaraBB Wow that seems a fab subscription! 1y
TrishB I‘m very tempted, have it open now on my phone…. 1y
Oryx Ooooh. What's this? I'm loving Ducks. I really didn't think I would. 1y
charl08 Argh, I don't need more books. But I'll just take a look at the site... 1y
squirrelbrain You‘re not buying more books, you‘re supporting a small press @charl08 @Oryx @TrishB ! 🤪 1y
MicheleinPhilly @TrishB Right??? This press gets me. 1y
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly supporting independents, that‘s what it is, definitely, yep 1y
rabbitprincess Omg those bookmarks 😂😂 1y
Moray_Reads I just got my Lucy Ellman today. I read Insignificance last week, very strange, very interesting. I hope you enjoy being a Galley Beggar! 1y
squirrelbrain Looking forward to reading both @Moray_Reads ! 1y
