Can someone clear this up for me: is this book autobiographical, i.e telling the real life story of the author? Or is it just a satirical commentary on society or something?

8little_paws It's not the author's real life story. 2w

Trying to look for this prompt has my head spinning and I feel like I'm not trying hard enough. Zombies aren't for me so Dread Nation is out, I read Kindred about 20 years ago and I'm finding lots of paranormal romance which isn't going to happen! Looking for alternate suggestions for the #POCMCParanormal prompt! #Help #InSearchOfSuggestions #LibrariansOfLitsy

Bookzombie I think this would work. I‘m probably going to go with a book by Daniel José Older. 2w
IamIamIam @Bookzombie Thanks! I've not heard of Older yet so I can take a look at the options. 😁 2w
Hestapleton I bet this would work! 2w

IamIamIam @Hestapleton Ooooh, good call!!! I have those on my TBR! 2w
LibrarianRyan While it's not really a paranormal book, he is visited by ghosts which are paranormal, so I say go for it. 2w
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan That's what I thought. With Kindred, I didn't think time travel is really paranormal but ghosts definitely count. 2w
4thhouseontheleft Labyrinth Lost would definitely work! I like that book, but FYI it does have a romance component. A few others are Shadowshaper, Akata Witch, and Fledgling. 2w
IamIamIam @4thhouseontheleft Awesome suggestions!!! Thanks so much!!! I have Labyrinth Lost on hold with Libby but I'll definitely check out the others! I think I was focusing on the POC part but not really thinking of all the colors available. 😂 Also, thanks for the heads up on romance! I can handle a relationship but not a romantic focus. 🤢 I know, very tween of me... LOL 2w
4thhouseontheleft @IamIamIam Labryinth Lost has a love triangle component. It‘s not a huge part of the plot, but it is there. 2w
IamIamIam @Bookzombie @Hestapleton @LibrarianRyan @4thhouseontheleft I was talking to my husband about the prompt and he asked if it was just ghosts or magic also. He suggested this too... what do you guys think? We have the audio, which is a huge bonus! 2w
mrp27 American Gods works, I was thinking about doing that one and Long Way Down certainly works, it's a fantastic read! 2w
IamIamIam @mrp27 Excellent!!! Thanks!! 😁👌 2w

Does anyone know how I can add a cover to this entry for the book? It doesn't have one, and it's such a stunning cover that I hate for it to not be there. I figured out how to add a cover when I create a book, but not how to do it for an existing book like this. I'm willing to do the work; I just don't know how.

(I mean just look at that! Gorgeous!)

So... If I want to start reading Terry Pratchett: is there a good book to start? Or a series? Is there a specific order to read?

I‘m here to ask Litsy for help: I seem to be at a crossroads. My job is inadequate, I‘m looking for work but have the impending recession looming over me now, my car needs 1000‘s of dollars or repairs to be safe to drive (I‘m lucky I have a good support system, so getting to my job won‘t be a problem). I‘m starting to see depression looming again. What books made a mark on you during a crossroads in your life? #help #crossroads #recommendations

TrishB I don‘t have any specific books. But when I feel so many different things getting on top of me I try and see which I can actually solve and try and plan something for those. Just having a plan helps me. I‘m not trying to be patronising as we all approach things differently I know. Hope you start to find some answers. 1mo
Megabooks I‘ve had two years worth of issues in my life recently and read this three times 1mo
TheBookDream @Megabooks thank you, I‘ll check it out 1mo
TheBookDream @TrishB I‘ve been working on that too, but having trouble with the long term planning. Either way, it seems like leaving the weekend free of such activities has been helpful in getting perspective. Weekend for books and board games. Weekdays for life. 1mo
TrishB I try not to do anything at least one day of the weekend for the same reason! 1mo

I read this book and enjoyed it. I also studied Latin in school and learned about Pompeii for a significant amount of time. I‘m looking for recommendations for other good books about Pompeii, fiction and non. I want to write my own story about the time and need more information and I‘m not sure where to look. #pompeii #reccomendationswanted #help #ancientrome

Soulless | Gail Carriger

I got lost down the rabbit hole that is fanfiction. I love reading but sometimes (Most of the time) it's too much for me to get emotionally invested in another fictional character. So I always end up turning back to books I've read before because it seems safer. I'm trying to get better.....I'm rereading Soulless for the third time this year but I am trying. Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions? #readerproblem #help #suggestions

Y‘all I‘ve gotten so much reading done over my vacation but so much was dropped on my plate the moment I got back. I‘ll be posted a bunch of reviews in the next week because I‘m more than half way through the Throne of Glass series since starting it this month and I also have a bunch of manga I need to read before my loans are due at the library! So much to do and so little time!

#librarian #autism #mom #bookseller friends - please help! I have a 17 year old autistic son who hates reading, but has to do 20 minutes a day over the summer for school. His reading comprehension skills are very low and he only likes the Wimpy Kid books. We‘ve tried Big Nate, he wasn‘t a fan. He‘s huge into Nintendo. Any suggestions? #HELP #litsyloveslibraries

Palimpsest Percy Jackson? Fablehaven? I know these are more fantasy based and not exactly like Nintendo games. Although there are some Nintendo comics if that counts. Nintendo comic systems and I think there are Zelda comics if you choose to google them. 3mo
Hoopiefoot Not Nintendo related but my nephew who doesn‘t like reading but really got into the Dragon Masters books. 3mo
