There’s nothing more I like than a new project, and when this whole pandemic started, I got a little idea. There were SO many great quotes out there by female authors about books and reading and the importance of literacy. I also had so many people asking me for random book recommendations.
So, I developed Ladies Love Literacy, an instagram account where for 50 days, starting May 1st, I will be featuring ONE quote from a female author about reading and books and pairing it with not necessarily a review of the book the quote is from/one from the author but just any book. I’m a librarian, I have lots of book recommendations!
This isn’t, for me, a way to get a lot of Instagram followers or connect with authors or anything, I just hope it reaches SOMEONE who enjoys reading and finds a new favorite quote, a new book they want to read, or something that makes them pick up a book.
Here are the first two posts:

This is my new experiment. 50 days, 50 quotes from women about literature and book, and 50 random book recommendations. I hope you find something that drives you forward. 1: If you’re looking for drugs, sex, and rock and roll but also stunning prose and a unique narrative style, you want to read DAISY JONES AND THE SIX by Taylor Jenkins Reid. The rise and fall of a 70s band is told in this oral history style narrative that is a totally unique read and a compelling story.
