My local bookclub reads based on a monthly topic. March was “a color in the title”. These were my reads. We had an interesting and diverse mix of books chosen.

What book would you suggest with a color in the title?

#LARS #LitsyATXReadersSociety

UwannaPublishme Your book group is so creative! I‘d have to pick 6mo
Soubhiville Thank you for the recommendation @UwannaPublishme ! I‘ve stacked it 😊 6mo
Kitta What a good idea. Maybe this? 6mo
Soubhiville @kitta that sounds really interesting! 6mo
Kitta I loved it but not everyone agrees! So it would make for good discussion. I‘d also recommend 6mo

I first heard about this book over a decade ago and finally decided to read it for my book club‘s May theme, “a book you‘ve been meaning to read for a long time but keep putting off,” after a friend highly recommended it. In a word: Wow. I can see why this is considered a modern classic—it‘s provocative, unsparing yet also compassionate, and unputdownable.🔸#aprilreads2021 #LitsyATXReadersSociety #LARS

Read this for my book club‘s April theme, books/library. It‘s a short collection of quotes curated from C. S. Lewis‘s essays and letters, so probably not super interesting unless you‘re a fan of the author, which I am, so I enjoyed it.🔸#aprilreads2021 #LitsyATXReadersSociety #LARS

I read this for my book club‘s (#LitsyATXReadersSociety) March theme of espionage and thoroughly enjoyed the true, amazing story of Virginia Hall, an American field operative who arguably helped the Allies win WWII through the vast and meticulously curated network she built, person by person, in France. And she did all this with the perceived “disadvantages” of being a woman who had a prosthetic leg. Au contraire!🔸#marchreads2021

The Litsy ATX Reader‘s Society met today to discuss this month‘s topic: Books About Books or Libraries. I enjoyed all four of the books I read for it, to varying degrees. I think I actually liked the two non fiction best, which is unusual for me.

#LitsyATXReadersSociety #LARS #BooksAboutBooks

May‘s topic: Something You‘ve Been Meaning to Read for a Long Time but Keep Putting Off.

(We‘re still meeting online. Let me know if you‘d like to join)

CaffeineAndCandy What does the group do? How often do you meet? 1y
Soubhiville @CaffeineAndCandy we meet the third Saturday of every month, and we‘re a sort of non traditional bookclub, in that we read to a different topic each month instead of all reading the same book. At our meetings we each talk about the book(s) we read, and we usually talk about life stuff a bit as well. We all live in Austin TX (ATX), but occasionally have drop ins from elsewhere in Litsyland. 😊. We use Google Meet. 1y
CaffeineAndCandy So nobody reads the same books? 1y
Soubhiville @CaffeineAndCandy it does occasionally happen, but if so it‘s not intentional. 1y
mhillis That‘s a great concept for a book club! 1y

Recommended by several members of my book club, #LitsyATXReadersSociety or #LARS for short. It was also my pick for our January theme, “Read previously for LARS by another member.” I loved the openly curious and innocent questions of the author‘s young mixed-race son about race, religion, and culture. 🔸 #januaryreads2021

My local Litsy club, #LitsyATXReadersSociety, reads to a different theme each month. For February our theme is “A Book Whose Universe You‘d Like To Live In.”

What bookish universes are your favorite AND why?

(Tagged this book because the Hitchhiker universe is fun and silly)

The upcoming meeting of #LitsyATXReadersSociety is November 21st. Our topic this month is Female Relationships. I can‘t wait to hear about your books!

Pictured here are some of the most special women in my life: my mom and aunts, my sis, and my best friends. They all live far away, so making this collage felt pretty great 💕.

robinb Beautiful collage! ❤️ 2y
