Hello folx! For September's club pick, we are reading "Forest of a Thousand Lanterns" by Julia C. Dao!

For obvious reasons (especially if you've seen the Weed Is Life shit go down) I'm locking this account. I'll probably approve most of y'all but better safe than sorry.

Poll Ended!

August we are reading Wilder Girls by Rory Power!

Hey club:
The book for July is "The First Rule of Punk" by Celia C. Pérez.

If borrowing: I think you want this one physical. I've heard it has drawings in it, but if you're reading on like, a phone or tablet (like a Fire) it's probably fine.

The other ones I've heard raved about, especially George, so I'll probably check them out too, if anyone wants to talk about them too.

Dear USA people 

I finished "Forest of a Thousand Lanterns" today. Which may have been a poor choice. Not for spoiler reasons.

More for, I wanted something to read in front of my happy light, and I was at like, the 66% mark, figured I'd read for 30 minutes, and at some point figured I was close to finishing the story.

A while later I finished. You're supposed to get 20-60 minutes of light, and I think I got at least 80. 😅

My head hurts...

just sent me an email saying "It's your turn to marry for money". It's like they know I want to marry an American Man just to steal his house! Mwahahaha! 😈

What's a better host for comics? Tapas (allows NSFW) or Webtoons (does not) or any other (or just post in all of them)?

I'm not getting into the "spoilers" aspect of it.

I don't like introductions in Classics and such because they seem to assume I've already read the thing, which seems to defeat the point of the very WORD "introduction".

On the other hand, I'm pretty sure the distilling it's doing in this assignment is better than I will get from reading Rousseau.

I think the kids are too busy with school. I can actually check out a bunch of titles with no waiting list. (unless I'm so uncool that "With the Fire on High" is no longer cool)

¿Adonde comprar libros impresos españoles y iberoamericanos en el Internet?

- en la UE
- no Amazon

Estoy en Finlande, así que despacho internacional es esencial.

Very very important news: for my library, at least, Mariko Tamaki's Harley Quinn graphic novel is available to borrow on Hoopla!

It is called "Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass" and looks completely amazing. Don't you want to see a Harley reimagined w/o her identity revolving around Joker? I sure do!

Also it's Tamaki and Poison Ivy's a major character, so I'm betting it's at least a LITTLE gay.

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!
