Hey #SFFBookClub! @naga is taking December off from organising, but for those who still want to take part this month I suggest making it a sequels month. I will be reading Jeff VanderMeer's Authority https://www.librarything.com/work/14511352 which has been sitting on my bookshelf since shortly after we read Annihilation. I've also read Ann Leckie's and Margaret Killjoy's sequels and would love to talk about those if any of you pick one for your December read.
@jessmahler happy to, with the caveat that I’m still figuring it out a bit myself. Do you have specific questions or just want an overall intro?
@eldang Overall intro would be great. Thanks!
@jessmahler Actually, one more question before I start: are you a Goodreads user? I'm realising how many things I'd explain differently by reference to Goodreads vs for someone who doesn't have that set of habits.
@eldang Yeah, I'm on goodreads
@jessmahler Cool. I think the natural starting point is to import your existing library, which I did by following these instructions: https://blog.librarything.com/main/2013/05/sync-your-goodreads-to-librarything/
But I also got confused by some differences between GR & LT, so I'll mostly talk about those. (...)
