Louise Brooks Society on GoodReads

Are you part of the smart set? Do you enjoy reading and love Louise Brooks and the Jazz Age? Do you have an interest in the silent film era, pre-code Hollywood, or all that was going on in Berlin and Paris between the wars? How about F. Scott Fitzgerald, flapper fashion, or femme fatales? Are you on GoodReads?

The Louise Brooks Society has its own GoodReads account, and would like to connect with you.  Check out the LBS on GoodReads at

There, you can see what other related books the LBS is reading (Ziegfeld and His Follies: A Biography of Broadway's Greatest Producer by Cynthia and Sara Brideson ), has read (Wild Bill Wellman: Hollywood Rebel by William Wellman Jr. ), or wants to read (The First King of Hollywood: The Life of Douglas Fairbanks by Tracey Goessel).

And if you go through the LBS book shelves, you might also pick up a recommendation or two, such as Idols of Perversity: Fantasies of Feminine Evil in Fin-de-Siècle Culture by Bram Dijkstra, or Dark Lover: The Life and Death of Rudolph Valentino by Emily W. Leider, or Jazz Age Beauties: The Lost Collection of Ziegfeld Photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston, by Robert Hudovernik. There is a lot to check out.

And while you are on GoodReads, don't forget to add these key titles to your your own GoodReads bookshelf -- and give them a rating too!
