This month's book choice is in honor of bell hooks who interviewed me for Paper magazine this month. Maya Angelou said of bell’s work, “Each offering from bell hooks is a major event, she has so much to give us’. I love hearing from bell, I am pretty excited to start “All About Love: New Visions". It’s been on my list for a while.

Simon Kuhn | 223 comments Ooh yes! I heard a lot about this book since I got somewhat into feminism, and only heard positive things so it promises a lot :)

Hopefully they got this one in my library, excited to read this one <3

Yay!! So far, all three books have been new to me, which is great. The more new stuff I read, the more I'll be introduced to! Looking forward to finding it.

Alexandria | 24 comments Yay! I've liked everything I've read by bell hooks so far, but I haven't read this yet.

The only downside (for me) is there doesn't appear to be an e-book version of this one. Oh well, ordered it from Amazon!

message 14: by Caroline (new)

Caroline Gabe (cmgabe) | 23 comments So excited for the latest read. I have heard of bell hooks and read some excerpts of her work, but never a full book. This group has been great so far in focusing my reading in a way that I really didn't know I needed (or wanted for that matter).

I am so excited, I just placed my order.

message 19: by Ashley (new)

Ashley (ashpohlenz) | 10 comments Really looking forward to this new book. I love that each of the 3 are ones I never would have picked up and I have thoroughly enjoyed the first 2. I am expanding my reading and learning through this book club. As I librarian I see so many books and have tons on my to read list but this book club and the threads with suggestions have expanded my to read shelf even more. We are even featuring this book club (Our Shared Shelf) in our library links article for the local newspaper while we talk about Women's History Month and our favorite female authors.

This is not something that would have occurred to me personally, and I don't want to speak for anyone else on the team, but I'll bring this up and add it to the list of things we should keep in mind in the future as far as accommodating members. Thanks for letting us know!

Excellent, thank you for featuring us! The more the merrier :) Hopefully more people are bringing OSS to their local communities, via libraries or otherwise!

Julia Scherf | 18 comments I'm very excited about this month's choice. I haven't heard of this book before but it sounds amazingly good. I'm curious about the psychological aspects mentioned in there.

Romina Scianatico | 37 comments This has been on my list for aaaages! I can't wait to start it!

message 32: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie (meetmeinmalkovich) Thank you all of those who have posted links for finding this book. I immediately went to my library, but of course they don't have it. Small town libraries aren't very selective.

message 33: by Romina (new)

Simone | 85 comments Brilliant choice!!I've always wanted to read bell hooks 's books!And that's it,All About Love!!!

message 36: by erika (new)

erika | 36 comments YES!!! I have been hearing that name a lot lately and I am SUPER excited to finally read some of her work!!

message 37: by Carolina (new)

Carolina Echevarría | 29 comments I'm so excited! I hadn't heard of bell hooks until recently and I'm certain this book will be great. I've learnt a lot about myself and how to appreciate others and my surroundings from Gloria Steinem and Alice Walker's books, I can't wait to see what bell hooks gives me!

My library doesn't carry it either-- I had to request an inter-library loan. Takes a little longer to get, but is definitely worth it! I hope you are able to track it down!

Michelle (michelleturnerismyname) | 28 comments Very excited to read some bell hooks!

message 40: by Thabata (new)

Thabata | 7 comments Did anyone find the kindle version? Desperate here!

message 41: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Cunning | 10 comments I've been searching all over for it (kindle and otherwise) and can't find an ebook format so I guess I won't be reading it. I really wish the book picks were easier to access. I had the same problem last month!

message 42: by Kylie (new)

Kylie Reardon | 49 comments I love the fact that I never would have picked up any of these three books at the bookstore, and yet I couldn't wait to come home from work and pick up where I'd left off in both so far.. I'm learning as much about myself as I am about feminisms and literature. A huge thank you to everyone involved in this brilliant gathering ! :)

Evelia | 89 comments Also looking forward to reading this book. :)

message 46: by Haylee (new)

Haylee Lederer (hayleeonfire) For those who can't find it at their local libraries - try interlibrary loan. Most library systems offer it.. you just input the information for the book and they will borrow it from another library for you! It's totally underutilized but such a massive help sometimes.

Jessica (city_jess) | 1 comments Excited to read bell hooks this month! I just learned about Our Shared Shelf through Emma's interview with her in Paper. Looking forward to joining the conversation!

I feel like you should post this in a different thread.
