I was going to finally finish Comey today, but then Overdrive suddenly dropped A Brief History... Choices choices.

panoramix Well, my kobo refuses to download anything other than the store preview of a brief history, so that takes the decision out of my hands. 10mo

Can someone please fix the Litsy Android app?

tournevis I don't know about 'fix'; it works as is. It's clunky, though, I agree. Maybe, 'make better'? That'd be nice. 14mo
panoramix Make better is nice, fixing the regular crashes is necessary. 14mo

Arguably: Selected Essays | Christopher Hitchens
post image

"This is the world of wretched, tasteless food and watery drinks, dreary and crowded lodgings, outrageous plumbing, surly cynicism, long queues, shocking hygiene and dismal, rain-lashed holidays, continually punctuated by rudeness and philistinism."
- Christopher Hitchens aptly sums up the England that produced George Orwell and Philip Larkin.

Rainy Sunday afternoon reading and cooking. Perfect.

Hard to find an image that depicts the early part of this book, it'll have to be this crappy one. Happy almost-easter! #scifi

Planning out the next #scifi read. Which one would you pick?
Raven Stratagem, by Yoon Ha Lee
An Unkindness of Ghosts, by Rivers Solomon
The Wanderers, by Meg Howrey
Provenance, by Ann Leckie
How to Stop Time, by Matt Haig

AiBBot I vote for Raven Stratagem. I have never read anything like it. 1y
AiBBot Although all the other books are on my “to read” list. 1y
Beckys_Books Just finished How To Stop Time - one of my favorites so far this year. 1y

Mehso-so

Chilling and creepy, but yet somehow unsatisfactory. Stops when it's about to get really interesting.

Ok, I'm new so let's do this #readingfavorites thing.

1. Ebook definitely, I have all my books with me all the time.
2. On a train, in the ssh-be-very-quiet-section, going far.
3. Coffee.
4. Multiple. A novel, some nonfiction, one of them audio for workouts and cleaning.
5. All the time. Stuff that needs brain power in the day, lighter stuff after six.

Kaye Thanks for the Follow, and welcome to Litsy 😊 1y
Chelleo My favorite section! 😊 1y

By far the best book I read in February.

This makes me think of Greg Bear's Darwin's Radio.

Lightyear, by Didrik Hallstrøm is a short piece of #scifi touching on climate change, interstellar travel and mental health. It isn't perfect, and I have questions, but it's by far the best Norwegian-language sci-fi I've read in a long time.

(How do I add books that aren't in the database? Added another book to post this.)

panoramix Asked the librarians nicely to add it. 1y
RaimeyGallant You figured it out! Yea! 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 need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo just put some together. 1y
panoramix @RaimeyGallant Thanks for the welcome. Is there a notification or something when and if the librarians add my suggestion? 1y

RaimeyGallant I haven't received any. It'd be great if there were! 1y
DivaDiane Hi! Welcome to Litsy! I don‘t think they notify you. Although it‘d be nice if they would. I‘ve read some pretty obscure poetry collections (SF!) that aren‘t in the database... 1y
DebinHawaii Welcome to Litsy!!🎉📚👍😀Hope you enjoy it here! 1y
