The Bookshop Book by Jen Campbell

“Marvel is a division of Disney and its chairman, Isaac Perlmutter, is a longtime personal friend of Donald Trump, donated to [his] campaign and serves Trump as an “unofficial and influential advisor.” Spiegelman‘s intro made reference to this fact and tied the origin of Marvel with its thin-veiled allegories about fighting fascism to the contemporary moment, comparing Trump to...Marvel villain Red Skull and dubbing him Orange Skull.” 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

This collection is a must-read for any creative person. “Make Good Art” has long been a favourite of mine and was actually the first thing I posted about on Litsy. “Why Our Future Depends on Libraries, Reading and Daydreaming” is also great. I have misgivings about “Credo” but I overall HIGHLY recommend this book.

Reading horror in the dark because why not? 👻 This one is creepy illustrations with 1-2 sentence stories around the idea that something is always behind you. It‘s based on thehairsonthebackofyourneck.tumblr.com - which I recommend checking out (the illustrations are animated!)

“You‘re finding out something as you read that will be vitally important for making your way in the world. And it‘s this: the world doesn‘t have to be like this. Things can be different. Fiction builds empathy ... you, and you alone, use your imagination, create a world, and people it and look through other eyes. You‘re being someone else, and when you return to your own world, you‘re going to be slightly changed.”

I didn‘t want to take anything out of the book so I can discover them as I read but I did see things like bookmarks, notes, stickers, magnets and a bluray (a super cool addition). Thank you @Stacypatrice ! It looks great and I‘m excited to go through it.

Station Eleven: A novel | Emily St. John Mandel
post image
Pickpick

One of my favorites of the year so far. Mandel managed to take nostalgia and encapsulate it in book form. Interesting concept, complex characters, and it‘s generally well-written. It‘s dystopian but not quite science fiction(as it‘s often billed), more literary... sci-fi lite. So I‘d recommend this for anyone who wants to ease into that genre.

MrBook Nice review! 3mo

Hey #Ottawa area Littens 🇨🇦 The Book Gallery is closing due to a series of unfortunate circumstances. They have to get rid of almost 100,000 books by June so they‘re giving them all away. Free books AND you‘re helping someone who‘s going through a rough time.

1. Complicated question. Short answer: I live in 🇨🇦, specifically Ottawa. I‘m from here/rural Quebec.

2. I can‘t see myself living anywhere else permanently.

3. All I‘ve had time to read lately is the news.. so, everywhere.

4. Uhh Timbits are considered quintessentially Canadian (Poutine is actually Quebecois and maple syrup is Indigenous). Ottawa has BeaverTails.

5. 💙💚

I enjoyed this. It has some faults typical of a YA fantasy, namely that character development sometimes seems sped up in order to move the plot forward. However, the world building is nice and the start of the book is slow in order to establish character and setting. It‘s from an independent publisher so I know this isn‘t always possible but a map would have been handy. I look forward to reading the second book when it comes out.
