I‘m on the @batsy failure train. Epic fail on lists. I make them ,lose them or stash them #underarock . This one ,
#LitsyAtoZ2018 found this morning, my #litsyclassics can‘t find it, my #GARBingo I have read 5 but not in a row for bingo. There is a #readallcultures list here somewhere....Hey , I wouldn‘t want to create a database on computer so I would know where they are....heck no!😂 #NoFemmeber

Billypar I'm a big fan of Excel sheets but I'm not sure they're more effective- I know I have countless that I start and forget about! And Litsy A to Z looks pretty successful to me 👍👍 11mo
RealBooks4ever You can do it! 💜 11mo
batsy The lists are the best part! You're already on a roll 😁👍🏽 11mo
erzascarletbookgasm There‘s hope in this challenge- only 5 to go. You can do it! 🙂 11mo

Four books waiting to be read: three from countries I haven't read before (Latvia, Ecuador, & Nicaragua), my first Kenyan Luo author, and all women. #ReadingWomen #ReadWide #ReadAllLanguages #ReadAllCultures

Ponder this with your latte: "Is it possible to achieve a humane end through inhumane means?” #ReadWide #ReadAllLanguages #ReadAllCultures

Been wanting a visual map of my reading and looking for the best app for that. Here's a view of 2017 using the free features of Mapline.com. Not that eye-catching but workable. #ReadWide #2017ReadingStats #ReadAllLanguages #ReadAllCultures

Tamra That is fun! 2y

Only ~3% of all books published in the USA are works in translation. Here is my 2017 effort to read from non-english speaking countries/cultures. 42% of the 43 books I read were Literature In Translation(LIT) or from authors for whom English was a Second Language (ESL). EFL= English as First Language. So I'm well above the published norm. #2017ReadingStats #ReadWide #ReadAllCultures #readAllLanguages

A lifetime of reading inadvertently inside the white male canon slowly being corrected year by year. For 2017, 77% of the 43 books I read were by LGBTQIA+, women, people of color, indigenous, etc., authors. #2017ReadingStats #ReadWide #ReadAllCultures #readAllLanguage

MariettaSG 50-50 for me, I will have to improve. 2y
jveezer @MariettaSG That's still significantly above what the USA publishing industry feeds us. Well done! 2y
MariettaSG Thanks 🙂 2y
