På vegne av venner: essay | Kristopher Schau

"New to me book" for RAT bingo, nice smallish break

The book is about the amazingly crazy musician (who I've been in touching range of haha) and how he decided to attend funerals arranged by the public. People who had no one else to see to their final resting place. Have no expectations, just picked it up randomly.

The Colour of Magic | Terry Pratchett

Can't believe I've been literate for 21 years and this, is my first time in discworld!

Aimeesue It won't be your last! This one's not my favorite, but the books get better as they go. I'm a little envious of all the fun you have ahead of you. 2mo
Tex2Flo Disc world was a recent find for me, too. Love the th absurdity of it all. (edited) 2mo

Started this on top of many other open books. Figured I needed a change and this audiobook provides it by both genre and voice. And it is perfect from the first "page"! Thanks Litsy for bringing this book my way. (Also what even possessed me to think I was cured of reading more than one at the same time?)

Slajaunie You will never be cured but that is okay. 🤪 2mo

I Hid My Voice | Parinoush Saniee
Pickpick

Even at work I had to hide away to read a few pages, and I didn't sleep until it was over. (Under interesting cicumstances this book also joined me in the ER) it is such a competent story about what it means to be a sensitive child/person, what true genius is, and family relations both good and bad. This is one of those very honest novels. It tells a truth and doesn't try to be more than it is.

M.V Whohoo thanks 😄🌷 2mo

This book is a mystery to me, does anyone who sees this post know anything about it? I find nothing on neither author or book other than that it's deemed culturally important!

Crazeedi Welcome to litsy!!🎶 2mo
Crazeedi Sorry that I can't answer your question! @Cinfhen do you know anything about this ?? 2mo
Lcsmcat All I could find is that the author was from New Zealand. Have you read it? 2mo

Went straight from #Chile to #Iran on my literary trip around the world today. (It's "the Shrouded Woman" by the way.) Have any travel tips? I've only been to like 15 countries yet. #literarytriparoundtheworld

Chess Story | Stefan Zweig
Pickpick

Absolutely brilliant, masterfully lined with simultaneously different meanings. That feeling of being able to tell many moves ahead in chess, chased through my body as I was reading this. And not because it was predictable, no, because it invoked a certain sensation of intuition.

I was picking books from the shelves of the library, first thinking they where at random, afterwards noticing they have a lot in common. All have "women" in their titles as the most eyecatching. A good warm up for the 8th?

Anne of the Island | Lucy M. Montgomery

This is really not giving me the same good feeling as the previous ones... Yet I couldn't ever think of quitting it. Halfway

Won't be closing this one until it's done, somehow it really drew me in from the first page.
