What do you read when you don't actually have any time or energy left for fun but still want to read *something*?


Answering my own "reading when you don't have the spoons to read" :

Fanfic, I guess? You'd think comics, with how much I love them and the fact that they actually come in small monthly installments, but it actually takes more out of me to process images than words so they're often the first to go when I'm too tired or stressed.

But I can usually find some fanfic that's entertaining, reasonably well-written, and light enough not to require much from me.

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!
