I feel like I should say this: I'm not following non-book accounts with this account. It's not because I hate you, I just want to keep my home timeline here book-related.
If you super duper like me come follow @Julia@boringpeople.org and if you super duper like me and we've actually talked to each other before follow @Julia.
I guess I should do some #introductions, eh?
I used to read a lot (mostly fantasy and scifi) but over the years I went from >100 books/year to 34 last year. Unfortunately that has not deterred me from accumulating even more books. It's a problem, y'all!
I'm hoping being part of this instance is going to motivate me to read more again.
Have touched the first book in months two days ago:
"I'll Be Gone In The Dark" by Michelle McNamara.
The older I get the more often I just go for non-fiction.
That non-native speaker feeling when you know what words mean because you've been reading them for years but while reading aloud you suddenly realize you don't know how they're pronounced.
This toot has been sponsored by "cymbals".
(My stab in the dark was correct but hooboy, was that stressful.)
I think I may have found a porn book that is the right amout of ridiculous and actually good?
Is that a thing? Is that even possible?
I don't read enough to justify the amount of books I have.
Also @quatschmitsauce and @Julia@boringpeople.org
A place for sharing and discussing books. After suggesting a Mastodon-based book club and getting a lot more interest than I expected, I decided to make a place specifically for facilitating that. So this aims to be a home for creating and organizing book clubs and read-alongs.
Not just for clubs, though. Like books? Want to talk about books and read about what other people are reading? Congrats, you're welcome here.
Well, with some restrictions. No hate speech, threats, etc. See our rules/code of conduct for more of that and general posting guidelines.
Not looking to join a new instance but wanting to join in the discussion anyway? No problem, just look for and use the hashtags.
This instance also now has its own Patreon page to help with the basic costs and maybe even (if I'm being very optimistic) help it grow into more. Check it out if you're willing/able to consider helping me out that way.
Thanks for stopping by!
