LGBTQ [Virtual] Bookbox - EU edition
- books, non-fiction or fiction, and of any genre, by LGBTQ authors, illustrators or editors. For example, Sarah Waters' 'Tipping the Velvet' would definitely count, but so would her most recent novel, 'The Little Stranger', even though the latter only features straight characters.
- books by straight authors/illustrators/editors featuring sensitive portrayals of LGBTQ people or characters. Obviously these would primarily be fiction, but e.g. a biography of Benjamin Britten would also count.
I'm just gauging interest at the moment - do comment below or PM me if you'd like to join in.
I've appreciated boxes which didn't require too quick a turnaround time - as offhand I haven't too many I could add here, it would be nice to be able to read and put back in the box before sending on. I've been in both kinds of boxes (send out as quickly as possible and also those where it's ok to keep and read some first).
Would anyone else like to join in? If so, PM me or reply below, letting me know where you are and how far you're happy to post the box. Existing participants, I will contact you via PM to confirm mail preferences.
If anyone who signed up for this expecting a real bookbox isn't happy, please let me know, and I'll, um, think of something ;-)
PMing all interested parties now.
I'll be sending reminder PMs to those who haven't yet replied to my first one.
So let's recap: I sent the email to the first participant, but had no response, so will resend. (I've found a few more books to add to the list, in any case.) I haven't PM'd other participants, but will be doing so today.
And if anyone else wants to join in, PM me, or post here.
