So by a quick count I already have 29 books specifically planned to read next year. Almost 3 books per month. Wow.

I guess maybe limiting myself to only 10 new books for the year will work out alright after all. ๐Ÿ˜†

Open to recommendations for the other 21 books I plan to read to reach my goal for the year. Particularly looking for books by and about POC, both fiction and non.

And I figure at least like 6 of those are gonna be books related to my work. Pharmacy/health/hospice stuff.


2019 Reading List, t-slur 

Books I started this year but still haven't finished so they're on the 2019 list: 

Books I already have and want to read in 2019:

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: 2 Fast 2 Furious (Shannon & Dean Hale)

Modern Serpents Talk Things Through (Jamie Brindle)

Welcome to Night Vale (Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor)

Binti: Home (Nnedi Okorafor)

Hunger (Roxane Gay)

Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation (Kate Bornstein & S. Bear Bergman)

The Summer Is Ended & We Are Not Yet Saved (Joey Comeau)

How To Be A Normal Person (TJ Klune)

The Omega Objection (GL Carriger)


2019 Reading Plans thread (the rest will be off public so I'm not just spamming)

Goal: 50 books (2 more than 2018)

More queer books.

More POC authors and characters.

More books that directly feed into my career goals and other passions. Pharmacy, health care, ministry, humanism. Especially things that combine those, like books on chaplaincy, end of life care, etc.

At least one poetry book? It's been quite awhile since I read poetry but I used to love it.


Oh wait I thought I had 2 more books for my GR challenge but the site informs me I actually met it. Wahoo!

Now to plan for next year.

What's on your reading list for 2019?

Goals for number read, types of books, etc?

Any books you know you definitely want to read? Exciting new things coming out next year?

Any official or unofficial challenges?

Oooh, more books for my 2019 reading list.

(Best queer YA of 2018 list. It's buzzfeed, ew, but the list looks good.)

I traded shifts with a co-worker so I have to start at 9 am instead of 1 pm yayyyyyyyyyyyy.

But hey, I get to come home and start my weekend earlier, so I guess that balances out. Planning to do a whole lot of reading after work.

Hey, it's technically now where I am!

Tonight I read a few Carry On SnowBaz fics, all from this author.

They're so cute and fluffy.

a bit of y2k-era futurism iโ€™d like to share with yโ€™all. itโ€™s another kids nonfiction book, sorta like the Future Files series, albeit a bit more down-to-earth, and with more original artwork that i think channels the eraโ€™s aesthetic really well.

Iโ€™m not the first to say it but Terry Pratchetts handling of dwarfs who come out as women is disarmingly good and good to read as a trans woman

Every year thousands of Santas crawl out of their hive, depositing presents in exchange for sugar which they bring back to their queen.

Ughhhh I really wanna get this podcast episode out this morning but also I'm exhausted and it's 5:30 in the morning and I've slightly nodded off twice in the past few minutes.

Guess it's time for a nap at least.

can i offer a dabbing sylveon in these trying times (art by tsukaui on twitter)

Mary: โ€œHere comes that fucking drummer boy againโ€

Jesus Christ: โ€œJesus Christโ€

Tumblr, silliness

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!
