I‘m going with a classic #iconic figure, Charlotte Bronte. I can‘t imagine growing up in such an isolated place and yet crafting arguably one of the best loved novels ever. This recent biography is on my tbr list - another book I started when it first came out, had to put down, and haven‘t had a chance to pick it up again. I adore the cover! #Movember

Also, I woke up to see so much concern over personal fears on not doing Litsy right - be you! ⬇️

Librarybelle These fears show me I‘m in the right place, because I honestly felt the same way, yet feared (haha) mentioning it. Did I post my cats too much? Anyone super annoyed over my buddy read posts? Then, I thought, just be myself. This is my happy place, and I really feel blessed to know all of you. You‘ll never know how much you help me! ❤️❤️❤️ to all! 6d
Sace @Librarybelle I wonder if people have the same fears on bigger social media outlets. The fact that we are having this conversation makes me think not. We are less "anonymous" here. I like that intimacy 6d
ljuliel Agreed. You guys just post. The older I get, the more I realize I can‘t please everyone , so I just say what I think. I‘m not too concerned about winning popularity contests. Life‘s too short. Be yourself. @librarybelle @Sace (edited) 6d

Librarybelle @Sace Agreed. We‘ve developed a close relationship in here compared to other social media sites. 6d
TheAromaofBooks One of the things I love about Litsy is how personal it feels. I think the lack of political discussions around here really helps us all to focus on more happy things than other social media! Also, side note, I don't really think it's possible to post about cats too much, so keep up the good work. :-D 6d
Billypar I like the cats: my apartment doesn't allow them, so I feel like I'm living vicariously through the #catsoflitsy And to my knowledge, no one has suggested that we ditch the books and change the name to Catsy (though, wouldn't be bad as its own social media app 😸) 6d
Mollyanna I love the focus on books with the accoutrement of life on Litsy!! It‘s a beautiful balance. And I totally agree, you be you, and @Librarybelle You are awesome! 6d
batsy Charlotte! ❤️ I want to read this, too. 6d
Librarybelle @TheAromaofBooks @Billypar Catsy! Now that‘s an app I would download! I think animals are perfect reading companions and love to see everyone‘s pets. 5d
Librarybelle @Mollyanna Thank you! 😊 5d

Toni Morrison talking about racism and fascism in the 90s. Every brilliant word still sadly relevant.

This interesting little book is a dystopia. I think. Or maybe a man‘s descent into mental illness? Or maybe it‘s really an allegory that went over my head, as I definitely don‘t know enough about Korean history or current events to pick up on an allegory. But this was interesting and unusual. The main character is not named, and his story makes odd sense—until it doesn‘t. #intranslation #koreanlit #dystopia

@Tamra here's some more books on Jane Austen. I haven't read them all but 4 of these are written by well-known literary or Jane Austen scholars. Will tag the rest in comments. I haven't read The Secret Sisterhood one - I know it features other authors but they may crop up in your modules!

jenniferw88 I haven't read this one either 2mo

Oh man, this book made me feel like I was back in school. It made me think really hard, which made it harder to read, but also made me very envious of anyone who was able to be taught by Toni Morrison. She will be missed.

A raw, gritty look at addiction with darkly humorous undertones, Problems is a small book with big impact. It doesn‘t hold back on the self-destructive behavior of the protagonist and can be painful at times to read. I didn‘t love the ending, which I found a bit sudden and pat, but the rest is terrific.

(Since I bought this book, I had in my head that it had a sand dollar on the cover. That‘s not a sand dollar. 🙄😆)

TrishB Great review 👍🏻 just read this week too. 2mo
Hooked_on_books @TrishB I think maybe you and I were both influenced by the same post about the author‘s sad death. She was talented. 2mo
Soubhiville I‘ve wondered what IS on the cover? Looks like the foil top of a yogurt container? 2mo
Hooked_on_books @Soubhiville Yeah, I think that‘s what it is, though I don‘t really know why. Frankly though, a sand dollar wouldn‘t have made any sense to the story. 2mo
