Soubhiville @JoScho he would love that. He feels sort of like suede all over, even though he only has peach fuzz on his nose and is otherwise naked. He‘s softer than my Chinese Crested was. 8h

Can anyone suggest some short, fast paced audiobooks for a road trip with my husband? Available on hoopla would be a plus. He‘s not a reader. He enjoys fantasy and sci-fi, action and superhero type stuff. Thanks!

(I‘m considering rejoining Audible just to get All Systems Red if I can‘t find something on Hoopla or Libby)

Please rescue me from 5 hours of heavy metal... 🙄

The Good Husband of Zebra Drive | Alexander McCall Smith

Pickpick

Another lovely installment in The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

There is some restlessness in the office, leading to some changes in staffing. Mr. JLB Matekoni tries his hand at being a detective. And everyone learns a bit about trust.

I love the way Smith portrays human emotions and tendencies, and his quiet wisdom. These books always bring me a sense of peace.

Ordinary Girls | Jaquira Diaz
post image
Mehso-so

Growing up in Puerto Rico and Florida in a poor family that struggles through divorce, mental health issues, and addiction crisis, Diaz hasn‘t had an easy life.
It‘s a memoir full of strife, abuse, drugs, and poor decisions.

I found the time-jumping writing style difficult to read. I had to set the book aside several times for a break. But ultimately I think it‘s a good book, from a point of view I‘d not heard before.

This is a really cool illustrated novella or maybe short story about a girl traveling cross country with her droid sidekick, Skip.

Virtual reality has bypassed TV as Americans‘ favorite pastime. And it turns out to be heavily addictive.

These illustrations are incredibly realistic, and this is a dark tale of a strange land that‘s actually pretty easy to see current technology creeping towards.

I really enjoy animal memoirs. This was a fun one from the author of Homer‘s Odyssey (Homer was one of her cats.)

There are several separate stories about cat ownership, from adopting a new kitty to dealing with an antisocial feline to trying to take 3 cats to the vet on public transportation in NYC.

Funny, sweet, and achingly familiar to any cat lover, these stories will bring all the feels!

“I think love is kind of like those waves out there,” she said. “You ride one in to the beach, and it‘s the most amazing thing you‘ve ever felt. But at some point the water goes back out; it has too. And maybe you‘re lucky- maybe you‘re both too busy to do anything drastic. Maybe you‘re good as friends, so you stay. And then something happens- maybe it‘s something as big as a baby, or as small as him unloading the dishwasher- and the wave comes ⬇️

This was an informative Middle Grade novella about a Muslim girl‘s struggle to think of something interesting about her mother to share at school for International Women‘s Day.

I finished my title #LitsyAtoZ! And I have just one more on my author version! Woohoo!

This was a really great book about a Latina who has to go to a new high school and finds that through no fault of her own, someone is bullying her. My heart went out to her as she struggled to remain a good student while dealing with daily fear.

This is a great addition to any YA library!

It was nice enough for a little outdoor reading earlier today, but the temp continues to climb, so I‘ve moved the party inside. I‘m about halfway through this YA about bullying. I like the main character so far.

I went to Recycled Reads today to pick up a stack of children‘s books to restock an empty Little Free Library I discovered near a favorite ice cream shop. I picked up this little haul of Easy Readers to fulfill my #BBRC prompts and pass along to the LFL. 😊📚

I may also have picked up a few #LitsyLove wishlist books while I was there 💌.

What a great collection of novellas! Mira Grant can sure spin a great zombie story. I love her scientific explanations of how zombies came about, and how the Rising (the Zombie Apocalypse) progressed.

My favorite novella in here was How Green This Land, How Blue This Sea. It‘s an in depth look at Australia‘s method of dealing with the undead. Zombie Kangaroos y‘all! What‘s not to love?!

This bookmark from @Rissreads was the perfect match!

Soubhiville @LibrarianRyan I‘m using this for my #FreezerBook for #BBRC. I had a few nightmares from it! Still loved it though. 1mo
LibrarianRyan @Soubhiville That is awesome!! 1mo
overtheedge Mira Grant....zombie kangaroos.....I'm In!! 1mo
Soubhiville @Rissreads and @overtheedge these novellas do have spoilers for the trilogy, so you might want to start with those... if they interest you. The Newsflesh Trilogy is: FEED, DEADLINE, and BLACKOUT. I‘m not yelling at you, the titles are all caps 😊 1mo

It‘s just a week until our next Litsy ATX Reader‘s Society Meeting! August‘s topic is Classics. Have you read yours yet?

This time we‘ll be on the 4th floor, room 471.

I‘ll arrive by 1 as usual if anyone would like to have coffee or a snack in the cafe or in the rooftop garden before the meeting. Hope to see you there!

We‘ve talked about doing some sort of field trip or bookish project... bring your calendars and let‘s see if we can plan one!

Eyelit I‘m looking forward to it 😃 1mo

I finished up my #BBRC picture books with these two. XO Ox was adorable. I loved the illustrations. Now I‘ll be moving on to a day at the library in the easy readers section.

LibrarianRyan Yeahhhhh 1mo
