@Julia oookay, that's an exceptionally good suggestion list, hardly any I would say no to :)


@Virelai Right?! Your suggestions were so good, I took some popular ones that didn't quite make it from the last polls and I added some GR Choice Awards finalists I actually want to read. :fingerguns:

@Julia <33 That's awesome! This month wasn't a great reading month for me, all hopes for december! :)

@Virelai My reading has been truly abysmal this year.
I think that's because the dude lives far away so I can't silently sit next so him and read but I actually have to constanly keep talking which is a problem. I have to talk to him about that. I'm getting no reading and no knitting done because in my "free" time (aka when he's asleep) I do things I have to do, adulting things. -.-

@Julia yes - that's definitely a change to everyday life, especially when you had a lot of me time before to do all those things. I regularly need some me-time but as you said, when you can physically hang out together it's easy to do things on your own but still be close. But - as long as your filling time with things (or humans) you love - it's okay if you can't keep up with 2017-Julia or 2016-Julia in that regard - I'm sure you two will figure something out! <3 *hugsies*

@Virelai Maybe we can implement some us-time with the webcam on but both doing our thing. 🤔
I mean, he reads to me so I COULD knit but I get distracted by his pretty face so that's on me. 😆
We'll figure it out.
🤗 <3

@Julia yeah, that could work :) Seems like all you need to do is get bored by his face - super easy task, riiiiight? :D hehehehe, you two are cuties :blobaww:!

@Virelai You'd think by now I'd be bored by his mug but I told him yesterday that he gets prettier every time and it's very rude because I can't work like that!
Stupid pretty face... 😠

@Julia super rude! So if you're serious about the reading/knitting thing - just have him put on a mask! :D Webcamming with a gorilla or horse face surely won't be distracting at all! Problem solved! Yay me!

@Julia Your so welcome! Anything I can do to help! 🤓

BookToot Club

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!
