Well, this was a nice way to discover one of my books was listed in the Bi-Bibliography! I didn't know that.

Overall I think those lists don't really give enough credit to the romance genre, and I don't quite know that "Call Me By Your Name" actually counts as a romance (romantic, but not Romance)...but look at all those books with bisexual characters! Love it! Thanks for the post!

That's a hell of a lot of homework for one week.

Seriously, though, glad to see lists like these.

I'm a bi reader and that's a bit heavy for me even.

Rock on, you all!

Um... We're gonna need a bigger week.

(But srsly. This is great! Thanks! Waves bi-flag, too!)

Hot off the press suggestion: Kristin Cashore's new book Jane, Unlimited was released on the 19th, and having read it, it is a lot of fun and has a bisexual female protagonist, a bunch of queer secondary characters, and a cute central queer romance.

Can't believe I wasted so much of my week of visibility reading a book instead of running around doing mischief and crime, oh well.

I thought reflecting photons was enough for me to do during bi visibility week, but clearly I need to put on my reading glasses and get to it. Thanks for the links.

Y'all have until midnight to read all these books and I expect thorough book reports on my desk Monday morning.

I read Bi ANy Other Name about 25 years ago and it probably saved my life.

While you're at it check out Dhalgren.

I saw this mentioned the other day on the We Need Diverse Books instagram feed: 16 Great 2017 YAs that Celebrate Bi Visibility.

Oh hey! Can't wait to dig into this list! In the interest of visibility I've been a somewhat active mefite for probably more than a decade and have often described myself as a gay man. But I've recently (and very happily) learned that I'm bi. It's only taken me until middle age!
