Well, you know what they say. Finding the right analogy is as hard as... as hard as...

A student of mine was reading this book, completely entranced. We talked about it and she was so full of enthusiasm that I wanted to read it too. Unfortunately, my library doesn't have it. When I told her.... she let me borrow her copy! I can only say to her: thank you for not seeing me as another teacher and showing me what you care about. She was right btw, this is a great book!

AmyG Every time I see this I thank Litsy. I just loved this book. 2y
GondorGirl That's so awesome! I love that books can bridge the gap between kids and adults. 2y
SmallestAct Thank you @GondorGirl. Very true ! I also think it's amazing to see her read a difficult book in a second language. 2y
Cinfhen Love everything about this post ❤️ 2y

I finally had time to go to the #library for an excellent #bookhaul. Can't wait to get started! I've got books in #Dutch #Spanish and #English, it's a nice mix. Which one should I read first?

Yes! Lazily reading in bed on a Sunday evening after moving yesterday. I'm happy to see that Odysseus and Penelope are also discussing interior decorating. Sleep well!

My handle here is from a quote by Oscar Wilde: " The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention ". I try to be kind, but I forget sometimes. This quote reminds me. Also, I'm kinda small and people used to tease me with it. Now I know that I'm perceived a certain way and I make use of it.

@Chelleo thank you for the inspiration!

As a biology teacher I talk about sex. A lot. Mary Roach gave me new facts and made me laugh out loud! I thoroughly recommend this book. Her writing style is quirky but gets the point across. I booked this as 'a book about sports' on #popsugar2018

Amazing book! There was more going on than I imagined, it was personally recommended to me by a colleague and he was right! However: the Next hunger games? No way! That's a selling trick. Read this.

It' s nearly time to move! One week left. But where did I leave this book? I'm sure it must be in one of these boxes.

AmyG Thst‘s my problem. We moved from a house to a small apartment and most of my books are in storage. Good luck with your move! 2y

I got this book in my last #libraryhaul because I liked the cover. I couldn't really get in to the book, maybe because I didn't read the first one? I think the plot could have been more complex. Sometimes it felt like a long narration of things they saw. However, if you are looking for an easy read, and you have read the first one, I would definitely recommend it. There's a lot of cool pictures too! #popsugar2018

I chose the book because of the cover. Liking it so far! I like the new take on history. I didn't read the first book 'Abraham Lincoln: vampire Hunter' . #library

I read this book because my students have to read it. I loved it! I think the themes of teens trying to find their place in the world is recognizable for my students.

As you can see by the dust jacket: I love this book and I've read it a few times. I like the fairy tale themes combined with a tough lady who follows her own path. I thought it was unique, because of the central role nature played in the story.

Coco I loved this story! So original and Noviks writing style was gorgeous I thought! 2y
RaimeyGallant Nice review. :) And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you're interested. :) 2y
SmallestAct Thank you @RaimeyGallant for the warm welcome! I was a bit creeped out that you noticed my newbie status (internal monologue: what am I doing wrong? Can everybody see this?) But after reading your tips I understand! And I'm happy to call myself a Litten too :) 2y

DeborahSmall This edition is gorgeous. I just picked up the paperback after reading The Bear and the Nightingale and The Girl in the Tower. It‘s difficult to get the hardback in the UK ❤️ 2y
