This is fun for booklist geeks: LitHub combed through many "best of 2019" lists, and tallied the titles named most frequently. It's embarrassing how few of these I've read, although in my defense, it's almost all fiction and I've read a lot on nonfiction this year. Thoughts? #bestof2019 #booklist https://lithub.com/the-ultimate-best-books-of-2019-list/

Emilymdxn That‘s so interesting! I always hope I‘ll have read more books on these lists than I have lol 3d
TiredLibrarian @Emilymdxn Me too! I feel like such a slacker when I haven't read many of the books on the list. 🙁 3d

I'm re-reading this book about the early days of the AIDS epidemic; it's so well done, and damning of the lack of action early on. I saw the miniseries years ago, and can't believe I forgot Sir Ian McKellen was one of the main characters. I want to see this again, when I'm in the right frame of mind. #nonfiction #AIDS

Megabooks Fantastic book! I listened to the audiobook. HBO adapted it into a wonderful/terrifying/angering movie back when it came out. You can watch it on Amazon Prime video. (edited) 1w

Tough to do a #WeeklyForecast this week with Thanksgiving coming up, but I'd just like to finish one or more of the above! One Day is really good; it's the story of different things that happened on 12/28/86, a randomly chosen day. Decadent Society started well; is getting a bit odd, but it's an ARC. Belichick & Fashionopolis have been in progress for a while, and I've wanted to read Dignity because I really like Chris Arnade's writing. @Cinfhen

squirrelbrain I‘d be interested to hear your thoughts on Fashionopolis - I‘ve picked it up a couple of times in the library, but not broken got it home (yet!)... 3w

So this was returned to the library today. It came back from an older woman whose home was flooded. At first I was appalled by the condition, and then when I heard what happened, I was amazed it was even on her to-do list to return it! Thought I could use the pics for a "what not to do to your books" display.

Nute I feel for the book, but I guess that I feel for the patron far more. A house flooding is probably devastating on any level.😞 3w
EH2018 I hope she was pardoned....how awful... 3w
Eggs It was kind of her to make the effort of book return, even if the book is unsalvageable 3w

GingerAntics Oh wow, I feel bad for the woman and the book. The book is probably a good representation of how she‘s feeling at the moment. 3w
Shakespearience Reminds me of the time I had a senior returning his textbook before graduation in rough condition, before I could say anything he told me that the textbook had been in his truck when it was picked up by a tornado. He told me he didn't want me to be mad or worried about the text book so he made sure to save it from the truck. I was like “OMG I'm just glad you're okay!“ 3w
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian Reminds me of someone who called the library worried about not having returned their DVDs and explained that it was because they were going through an awful divorce and living in their car. I was like, that is okay please not do worry about your DVDs we will sort it out when you are able to come in. 3w

Day 21: #wander #wandering #wanderer @LazyDays #poetrymatters #poetry

This is from my high school literature textbook. I fell in love with this one, and it was the 1st time I realized that people centuries ago felt the same emotions and passions that we do now. Human nature hasn't changed. A different translation: http://www.aimsdata.com/tim/anhaga/WandererMain1.htm?p=1548061026867

TiredLibrarian (Full poem under "free translation" link) 11mo

TiredLibrarian @zsuzsanna_reads I know - I couldn't find this translation online, and the one in my book has so many notes around it that it's hard to read! 😕 11mo
TiredLibrarian @Emilymdxn ❤ Did you study medieval lit? That would be so interesting! I waited throughout my undergrad years for a Chaucer course to be offered & missed it (they ran it the year after I graduated😕) 11mo
Emilymdxn Oh that‘s so disappointing! Yeah my degree was English literature but I only studied medieval, I did old English, Middle English, textual history, historical linguistics, medieval welsh, medieval romance and a dissertation on medieval dream visions - so very medieval! 11mo

Congratulations @REPollock on the 6000 Litfluence!

I've never had a #Blinddate with a book, although those look pretty cool! I've had a couple with human males. One was meh; the other was pretty good. It was awkward because we were both pretty introverted people, but we met at a Barnes & Noble (my pick 😊) and talked books 📚😊 We wound up being together for 4 years, and B&N was always a favorite date night 📚🙃

REPollock Aww, that‘s such a sweet story about the bookstore blind date that turned into something more! Thank you for entering my giveaway! 11mo

I've been feeling pretty depressed and worn down by life lately. Looking for books that give you hope and inspiration. What are your favorites? Note: not looking for inspirational/Christian fiction, or anything overly sappy or superficial. The tagged book is one that really speaks to me.

Thanks for your input, Littens. ❤

hermyknee It made my ♥️ happy 1y

Aimeesue In a kind of off kilter way, I was really inspired by A Man Called Ove, in a “real communities CAN be built” sort of way. People connecting and seeing each other for who they are… and still liking each other. (edited) 1y
JPeterson I really enjoyed Jenny Lawson‘s book 1y
Aimeesue @JPeterson Ditto. Furiously Happy is great. (I have a raccoon who visits my porch every night. Should I put this book in the window?😄) 1y
mcipher Jenny Lawson‘s books - funny and weird but they make you feel not so alone, like you are part of a tribe. I agree with @Aimeesue about Ove, too. It doesn‘t feel that way at first, but then it‘s SO feel-good. 1y
wanderinglynn Agree with @JPeterson & @Aimeesue Furiously Happy as well as her 1st book, Let‘s Pretend This Never Happened. Then in a similar vein as A Man Called Ove (which I also second), I suggest 1y
Rcoco I really loved 1y
alysonwrites The astounding diversity of people portrayed in this one book lifts me up because it‘s a reminder that there are so many other humans walking with me on this journey called life, and every single person has a unique story with their share of struggles and dreams. (edited) 1y
Velvetfur 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho, I always recommend that one for inspiration as it's sweet and it's an adventure 😊 1y
Weaponxgirl I'm weird with what uplifts me sometimes. But reading about amazing people in horrible times sometimes give me hope. Such as Paul rusesabagina who inspired the film hotel rawanda. Obviously it's a true account of the genocide so makes me cry but someone doing the right thing regardless makes me feel better. Like I say I'm weird but it gives me strength mentally when I read about these people 1y
Bookwomble The Summer Book by Tove Jansson: A young girl and her grandmother spend summers on an island in the Gulf of Finland. Gentle and beautiful. 1y
Aimeesue @alysonwrites Great pick! I follow Humans of New York for the same reason. (edited) 1y
knittedgnome I am not religious at all but I adore The Book of Joy. It's conversations with the Dali Lama and Desmond Tutu. Really insightful. 1y
alysonwrites @Aimeesue Yay! Sometimes it helps to just remind ourselves we‘re not alone in the human struggle. 1y
alysonwrites @Bookwomble I love Tove Jansson‘s Moomin novels and comics, but I haven‘t heard of this book. I‘ll have to try it! 1y
Bookwomble Her adult fiction is less well known, but just as magical. The Summer Book is semi- autobiographical and the love oozes off the page, entirely without mawkish sentimentality. 1y
