Pinned toot

June mainly for myself but also whoever wants to join in.

Books that had a major influence on your worldview. Informing, challenging, outright tearing it down or introducing something completely new, etc.

I'm gonna try to do one a day.

Looking forward to tomorrow with some because I have a long day ahead and need something nice to think about.

1 - What's the longest fanfic you've ever read?

2 - The shortest?

3 - What fanfic have you re-read the most times?

4 - If you *had* to, what fanfic do you think you could write on the spot right now?

(I've stopped doing them by the month for now, I'll just post when I think of some. Feel free to add your own, as always.)

1. Books that have helped you better understand a social justice issue

2. Books that have become harder or less fun to read since becoming more aware of social justice issues

not all for today but for anyone to do whenever. Sometimes I want to talk in the tag but don't have any fics to share so figured this would help.

When did you start reading fanfic and what sorts of fics (fandom, style, whatever) did you read back then?

Have you ever written any?

What sorts of fic do you read now?

Do you ever read fic for fandoms you don't actually follow?

What do you like about fanfic?

Favorites?

sick, meds

Think I'm gonna be werewolf-Jughead for Halloween. One of my friends was a Weird Sister from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (not one of them specifically, no wig or anything to match, just the same style dress, like a CAOS-sona).

Wonder if I could get any other friends to join me and have a whole Archie horror group theme.

Brown dragon for Etsy. Got another gold and bronze/copper to finish, and then I gotta fire up the sewbot and make a couple of blues and greens.

And my sister posted her notebook (adventure/bugs here: mastodon.art/@silverseams/1025) on FB and one of her friends wants to buy one so I guess I need to get some of those listed.

Since stores have decided it's Halloween and I'm seeing reminders everywhere, I keep wanting to re-read the Hocus Pocus novelization. Which is a *little* weird because, looking back at my notes from last year, I didn't actually like it that much.

I'll probably read it again anyway, but does anyone have some suggestions for other (better) Halloween reads?

Yay, I finished at least one book (Wilder Girls) this month! Expect I'll also finally finish the Runaways audiobook I started at least a year ago now that I'm in the habit of listening.

Also

Animorphs 1
Spinning Silver
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina novel

Between the last issue of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" and finally starting to catch up on She-Ra, I'm in the mood for magical girl stuff. Trying to find that in non-comics form mostly winds up with fairy tale retellings. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

I'm slightly interested in the Lunar Chronicles but the Twilight-style covers are throwing me off.

Has anyone read it? Is it good?

YAMG Bookclub nominations Sept 

Whew, work week's finally over. On chapter 21 of Wilder Girls, 1 hour and 16 minutes left.

I usually only listen to it when I'm walking or on work breaks, but I think I'm gonna just try to finish it off tonight instead.

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!
