hey @channel – since it’s national book lovers day, can we do a thing to share everyone’s favorite books?
chelsea [4:25 PM]
It’s so hard to choose though!
abby [4:27 PM]
The Virgin Suicides, And the Mountains Echoed, andddd Pride & Prejudice. @cardle you’re right so hard to choose
chelsea [4:34 PM]
The Kingkiller Chronicles (this is a series) by Patrick Rothfuss, but if you want one book from the series, I guess A Wise Man’s Fear was better. Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann, and The Short-timers by Gustav Hasford
But also, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard and Things That Are by Amy Leach
Oh wait, and also Breakfast at Tiffanys by Truman Capote

jess [4:40 PM]
Ooft. Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs, Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts, andddd All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven (which made me bawl like a baby)!
bethany [4:42 PM]
You couldn’t ask a harder question if you tried ugh I’ll just pick random ones: healing voices by toni ann laidlaw, not the end of the world by kate atkinson, and july july by tim o’brien
chelsea [4:42 PM]
@jess: last time I bawled during a book was a Fault in Our Stars. Goodness, that book was written to tear your heart in half
jess [4:45 PM]
@chelsea: managed not to cry during Fault In Our Stars – have you read All The Bright Places? It was such a kick in the stomach. Literally sobbing on the train, ha.
chelsea [4:46 PM]
No! I’ll add it to the list, though. I haven’t read a heart-wrenching book in a while.
jess [4:48 PM]
Very cathartic! And when I finish this darn MA in Sept I’ll need ALLLLL the recommendations from y’all.
abby [4:54 PM]
this is great, adding all these books to my (ever-growing) list
lesley [5:12 PM]
Really peeved I don’t have my own copy of Jane Eyre for this… classic.
chelsea [5:13 PM]
Great picture! I wish I could take one too (I have jane eyre!), but alas I’m working remotely this week and so far away from my lovelies
I.e. my books
lesley [5:16 PM]
Everyone I know who owns a copy of Jane Eyre has a very lovely vintage copy and it makes me want
I’m totally going to start calling my books my lovelies now.
