Finished this book while sitting on my basement stairwell—what better place to read a Stephen King novel? Haven‘t read King in decades but always meant to read this. The ending wrecked me. I feel like if I had read this in my 20s, I would have shed some tears and moved on. At 45, death seems so much closer. I‘ve always felt his best work showed that the true monsters aren‘t supernatural but are, instead, we humans and what we do to each other.

jb72 I read this last year and absolutely loves it. It just rips your heart out and stomps on it. 3d

I‘ve never bought a book at the airport—too expensive—but I read an article a couple weeks ago that said Paradies Lagardère-owned airport shops in US and Canada will buy back a book (50% back) within 6 months of your buying it. Any condition and all you need is the receipt. #bookwormbingo

Found signed copy of #Pachinko at local #Goodwill for $1. Didn‘t know it was signed till I got it home. (Her signature was upside down on page.) While I have never bothered to stand in line to get a book signed by author, it is still cool to think #MinJinLee touched this book . . . my book. What about everyone else? Ever found a signed book at a yard sale? Thrift store? Author signed in person? What‘s your story? #signedbook #thriftbookfind

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Awesome find!!! 🙌🏻 2mo

BarbaraJean That‘s so cool! I‘ve found a couple of author signatures in books, after buying a book secondhand. My favorite find was a signed Madeleine L‘Engle book that sat on my TBR shelf for so long that by the time I picked up the book to read and found the signature, I wasn‘t even sure where I‘d bought it! 2mo

WorldsOkayestStepMom I bought my husband a book off of Thriftbooks a couple years ago and we didn't know it was signed until he opened it on Christmas morning! 1mo

VanChocStrawberry I love that! I find signed copies at half price books sometimes—Local-ish authors as well as owl crate books. But my favorite finds are a couple of Madeleine L‘Engle signed copies. 1mo
GlassAsDiamonds @VanChocStrawberry oohhh!! L‘Engle signed copies!!!!!! 😱😱♥️♥️😱😱 1mo

PurpleyPumpkin Finding signed books is amazing. I'm like you, I love knowing that the author held my book at one point in time. 💜 1mo

RealBooks4ever Mostly I like getting to meet the author more than the signature. Recently I met Bill Griffith, the author of the Zippy the Pinhead comics. I just about fainted. 💜 Welcome to Litsy! 1mo
NeamhainHughes My sister got me a used copy of Nnedi Okorafor‘s Akata Witch, and I opened it to see her signature in it! Since it‘s basically my favourite series I was ecstatic. 1mo
CaitlinR Glad you‘re with us on Litsy. 1mo
wanderinglynn I found the first Discworld book signed by Terry Pratchett at a used bookstore. I kept the book. 😉 1mo

My first Litsy post. 💕 Using BORN FREE as my first book for #MayScavengerHunt. Author born on my birthday (January 20th); more than 300 pages; a character dies; made into a movie; and written by an author from different country. #MayMadness @Clwojick @RadicalReader @TheReadingMermaid

Clwojick That sounds like a great book! I‘ll have to check it out ♥️ 2mo

Lady_Tigana_20 @Clwojick, not sure if you have ever heard of Christian the lion. There was a book and a famous video about his reunion with former owners. He was bought at Harrods in late 60s and eventually the owners decided he needed to go back to Africa. Joy Adamson‘s ex-husband, George, taught him how to survive in African wild. He even had his own pride. Videos are on YouTube. I read the book about Christian, but I have only ever seen the movie about Elsa. 2mo

Buechersuechtling Welcome @Lady_Tigana_20 to this warm-hearted bookish network. I really love it here and soon got kind of addicted. As I started here I was thinking about opening my own blog but hesitated because I knew this would cost time that I could not spend reading. Additionally there was the GDPR coming up … As I then discovered @Litsy I found out that it was exactly what I was looking for: A reading log with short reviews and communication with others. 1mo
