Default Ah, the sweet smell of bookdust!

Great thread, Diva! I will be a frequent poster, I'm sure. I've managed a bookstore, worked in a a GREAT indie bookstore in G'ville, MS where we stopped for tea at 4PM everyday, and then was a Librarian for years!
Right now I'm in the process of simplifying my life. This includes even-gasp!-getting rid of some of my books! I am not sure what I'll be doing with them. Perhaps I'll put some one here on Queerbay, gratis, of course. I'll never charge family for books!

Night is one of my favorite books as well. I was fortunate in that I was able to talk with Mr. Weisel when he gave a lecture for my AP English/Lit class in high school. He was such a very nice man and was very patient with us teenagers asking him so many questions. I learned so much that day.

Normally my preferred reading genre is true crime. I have a favorite book called Mistresses of Mayhem by Francine Hornberger. It details centuries of women criminals, from Elizabeth Bathory to Lizzie Borden, and many others. The book itself is actually very poorly written and has lots of typos and errors, but I still like it just the same...lol

Negative.

There's something so special about the feel and smell of a book (especially library books!). But then, I am rather tactile and a bit old-fashioned.

I am in a book club and we are reading Bleeding Kansas right now. One thing i haveenjoyed about joining this club, othetr than it is all lesbian women lol, is i haveread books by authors i never would have picked up before. Some of them I consider good and some not so. I am more into sci fi and paranormal. Love Laurell Hamilton, Sherilyn Kenyon, Christine Feehan, lots of sex scenes and strange actions going on lol. I have read all of Anne Rices older stuff and for those of you who are curious about the Beauty series, it is not anything like who vamp novels, but EXTREMELY good lol. I have all of Steven Kings books and just saw on tv that Bag of Bones is coming to tv, and have read the Dark Tower series is going tobe a movie Yeah!!! Anyway that is what i like to read.

I just got the new book from Amazon today by Jeanne Cordova: "When We Were Outlaws", described as "...a love story set between sixties radicalism and the rocky but energetic blast-off of the lesbian movement...queer history that recaptured that reminds us of our roots.

"...the first lesbian conferences, the first women's music festivals, the first gay centers...lesbians in the SLA and FBI witch hunts".

It looks great and I am going to start it now

A book that I have truly enjoyed is A Name Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.

I was hesitant at first simple because of the way the friend who recommended it described it! I've given copies of this book to countless friends, family members, and even a relative stranger standing next to me at my favorite used book!

Right now I am reading *Fly Girls*

It is about the early days of women in aviation (and aviation in general) and the downright bullying they took to make way in a man’s world of aviation.

It’s a really good book!

I'm making a list of books I have either missed or overlooked as I watch The Great American Read series on PBS.


Their Eyes Were Watching God a 1937 novel by African-American writer Zora Neale Hurston and Another Country by James Baldwin are first on the list!
