I couldn't remember why I had put a book on my "up next" list, but then I saw a review on goodreads that said "The author has something against men" and I knew to trust myself and buy it.

When I make an alt account for shitposting in Middle English, the bio will be "Of fartying and of speche daungerous"¹

¹ Miller's Tale, line 3,338

pessimism, Middle English 

I just remembered the plot to The Mayor of Casterbridge and it's like WHO HURT YOU, THOMAS HARDY?

In which the knight abruptly interrupts narrating a vicious duel to check in on what the duke was up to, basically inventing the smash cut. #CanterburyTales 

I gave my avi some books. Go read, little ghost.

How long after a book is published does it not require a CW for spoilers? Is 600 years enough?

📚 This is my booktoot account 📚

I typically read classics and (uhhh) literary fiction. Despite a habit of reading classics, there are huge swaths of "the classics" that I haven't read because I'm an unrepentant re-reader (though I'm working on doing that less).

After spending the last two years reading mostly post-1950 novels, I'm currently (slowly) making my way through The Canterbury Tales.

I will read every toot in the local timeline.

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!
