The Secret Loves of Geeks | Margaret Atwood, Patrick Rothfuss, Gerard Way, Dana Simpson, Sana Takeda

So this is my #digitallibrary stack for @24in48

This is all from Hoopla. The app got an update and I‘m not sure I like it, since it put a “play “ button in the middle of the boom covers I have checked out.

I‘m going to get my #MargaretAtwood read for #authoramonth lead by @Soubhiville . I‘m going for GN because I‘m not sure Imhave time to finish anything else.

Bookjunkie57 I don‘t like the update either and I didn‘t notice the play button. I think I don‘t like it cause I‘m a grumpy old lady and I don‘t like change 👵🏾 😂 3d
LibrarianRyan @Bookjunkie57 I have seen a things I don‘t care for but we shall see. 3d
Soubhiville I had no idea how many graphic novels she was involved with! 3d
LibrarianRyan @Soubhiville I know. I was looking for audiobooks and found so many. This was just all the check outs I have left for the month. I‘m going to ILL all the others. 3d

Alias Grace: A Novel | Margaret Atwood
post image
Pickpick

This is an illustration of Grace Marks. In 1843, she, along with a fellow male servant, was charged with murdering her employer and his housekeeper. Grace was only 16 at the time. Margaret Atwood has done a fantastic job of bringing the time and place to life. Well researched. Exquisite writing. Was Grace guilty? You decide. @MinDea @Soubhiville #authoramonth #margaretatwood

Soubhiville I really want to read this too, but it‘s not happening this month. I haven‘t seen this drawing before, cool. 5d
Kaila-ann I‘ve read Burial Rites which I‘ve heard is (somewhat) similar. I‘ll have to bump this one up. 5d
batsy I loved this book! 5d

These lectures were invigorating and intellectually energizing. I liked Atwood's introduction where she explained the context of the lectures and how she wore thematically appropriate earrings for each one 😆 And even though these lectures were given in 1991, they are still relevant today.

The Circle Game | Margaret Atwood

I‘ve read a lot of Margaret Atwood‘s novels but not many of her poems, so I chose The Circle Game for #authoramonth
Favorites from this collection were The City Planners, Camera, and Spring in the Igloo.

Soubhiville I haven‘t even heard of this one! Great choice! 7d
mhillis @Soubhiville Thanks! My favorites are Hag-Seed and 3d

I‘m hardly making progress on books in print, but that doesn‘t stop me from checking out more library holds. Most of these are for the July #AuthoroftheMonth. #libraryhaul #bookhaul #librarylove

Soubhiville Wow! Great stack! 2w

I love dystopian, so naturally, this will be one of my favorites for life. However, it also gave me a lot to think about, some of which is not going to be popular. Here's my review: https://www.greatbookstudy.com/2019/07/the-handmaids-tale-by-margaret-atwood.htm...
Have you READ it? and what did it cause you to think about?

pilardib I'm glad I waited until 2019 to read this book 2w
LapReader I wish it was dystopian and not more and more like reality. 2w
TheEllieMo It‘s always described as dystopian, but as Atwood herself states, there‘s nothing in the book that hasn‘t already been done. That‘s what makes it all the more disturbing and thought-provoking. 2w

GreatBookStudy @TheEllieMo This is true. That‘s what makes it so poignant. 2w
GreatBookStudy @LapReader We enjoy so many liberties today, but what gives us pause is the absolute possibility of the instant loss of those liberties. And Atwood does bring that to our attention. 2w
GreatBookStudy @pilardib Like me...I read it in 1990, and it didn‘t have an impact like it does now. 2w

Incredible read.
Although different from the TV series, it was emotional, thrilling and an overall « I can‘t put this book down » read. I cannot wait for the sequel.
