Just returned home from holiday to #bookmail from @TrishB ! Thank you for sharing the #litsylove and thanks so much for the extra goodies! Very thoughtful.

Cathythoughts Looks lovely 😊 4d
TrishB Glad they arrived safely 👍🏻 4d
gradcat Very nice! Is that an Addams cartoon? And what are the six things at the bottom of the picture? Lots of questions, sorry! 😂 4d

eraderneely @gradcat so many questions! It is an Addams cartoon. Trish has the best postcards! And the things at the bottom are sticky page tabs for marking stuff you want to come back to. 4d
gradcat Oh, you‘re so nice to answer my questions. I absolutely love Charles Addams panels, and aren‘t those sticky things so pretty?! 🥰 4d

I don‘t know if I‘m just not in the mood for YA. This hovered between a pick and a so-so. Interesting subject matter, didn‘t resolve in a cheesy way, believable family dynamic, but I also didn‘t much care what happened. It could just be me though.

(I figured out the answer to my earlier question though! Within the book click “go to” and choose “cover” rather than a chapter.)

TrishB Glad you got it sorted 👍🏻 I think there‘s a million things my kindle can do that I have no idea about! 3w
eraderneely @TrishB I was just thinking, desperately, “how do I post to Litsy without the cover?!?” 3w

Kindle‘s first outing!

Can anyone tell me how to show the cover of the book I‘m reading? All I‘ve figured out how to do is get books from the library and read them. I don‘t understand anything else on this thing. (Yes I am a 110 year old Luddite)

TrishB Is it a paperwhite? 3w
readingjedi Do you mean instead of the default screen saver? If you can do that I don't know how! Sorry, totally not helpful! 😏 3w
eraderneely @TrishB no, regular version 3w
See All 10 Comments
eraderneely @readingjedi that would be great, but even in general is there a way to show it besides in the list of books on the device? 3w
readingjedi @eraderneely I think you just change it from list view into cover view. I think. I'm on my 3rd Kindle & still only do the bare minimum in terms of operating! 3w
eraderneely @readingjedi haha! I knew I had been avoiding these things for a reason! 3w
readingjedi @eraderneely Just looked on mine & you have the choice of views - grid or less. Grid gives you the covers, 6 to a pages. I'm a fellow Luddite when it comes to anything made after 1995! 😂 3w
Leniverse If you mean show the cover on the lock screen, then no. You only get ads for Kindle Unlimited, usually thrillers or romances. I hide the screen from view whenever I open my Kindle, lest someone see it and think I am reading "Marines in Love: War never prepared them for this". ? 3w
eraderneely @Leniverse haha! What? That‘s not your cup of tea? 3w
Leniverse I own my guilty pleasures. Mostly. But no, that's not even my beverage. 😆 3w

Bad Feminist | Roxane Gay

Pickpick

Like short stories, I often wish essay collections were a bit more cohesive instead of having that stop-start quality. But that is my problem with the format, not a criticism of this book. I enjoyed Hunger more - it was more raw - but no matter where Roxane Gay can write. I particularly enjoyed the last essay, Bad Feminist: Take Two.

I had been avoiding this because I don‘t do scary, but then it was a pick for one of my book clubs and it‘s so short I thought I‘d try it.
The first 2/3 there‘s a mounting dread and suspense that was really working for me. Then things got really weird and I just wasn‘t worried for her anymore and I didn‘t care as much what was happening.
Want to read the other 2 to find out what happens, but I‘m not sure I‘ll ever get to them.

Homegoing: A novel | Yaa Gyasi

I‘m a slow reader, so I‘m happy to have finished one book on #readingretreat
This book pairs really well with White Rage by Carol Anderson, which I finished last week.
The chapters are long enough to really get a story for each character, but short enough to keep from getting mired down. I like that each character‘s story is carried on in the next generation. Solid pick.

julesG I was actually quite glad seeing you make slow progress with the book. I felt bad about being such a slow reader. Now I know I'm in good company. 😁 2mo

Kindred | Octavia E. Butler

A book hasn‘t made me feel rage quite like this in a long time. Well done, Ms. Butler!
I was wary of the antebellum setting (slavery is a tough and important topic, but I can only read so much of the same story) but the difficult moral questions posed by Dana‘s trips to the past, her relationship with Rufus, and the power dynamics at play made it really interesting.
Exactly what a book club is for - getting you to read a book you wouldn‘t have.

Emilymdxn I felt exactly the same about this book! That‘s a really nice edition you have there 5mo

This is really difficult to listen to on audio. I want to stop and reread, pause and reflect, and take notes. I‘m thinking of bailing...but then who knows how long it will be before I read a physical copy.

Note: The narrator is great. She‘s not the problem.

I‘ve been trying to find a book like this for a long time. I do building engineering consulting in public housing, and I‘ve always wanted to read narratives of the residents describing their own experiences. This focuses on one housing project in Chicago over thirty or forty years and the author shows warmth toward the people he interviewed as well as writing a larger history.
