I’m nearing the end of a book & it’s one of those instances where I’m simply not ready to say goodbye to the complex set of characters I’ve come to know.

Oh well. I suppose that’s a sign of great storytelling. 📚 #books #reading


I decided a year ago that I must read books again. I unsubscribed from a slew of things and unfollowed many more, and now I find myself once more immersed in books.

Shoshana Zuboff’s “The Age of #SurveillanceCapitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power” definitely lives up to its reputation. It’s a pummeling analysis of how #BigTech have taken over the modern era, harvesting information, details, sentiments, emotions, etc. from our lives, creating profiles & predictive models, & working to modify our behavior for the purpose of profit-making (all without most of us understanding or being aware of how we’ve been changed). #Reading

I do love having Library Extension in my browser. As soon as I clicked the link to look at the book title on Amazon, Library Extension told me that my local library had the book (both printed copy and ebook), and I was able to place a hold on a copy on the spot. There will be a short wait — some holds already placed — but it saves me the price of the book.

Looking to get lost in a great story?

I’m currently #reading these two wonderful #books & highly recommend both.

I know there's a lot of reading challenges going around, but I wanted to make one of my own centered around how to #DecolonizeYourBookshelf.

I wrote a little blog about the challenge on my site, would love for you to join along! I'm doing it and will share the books I pick for each category!

its day 21 of the harpercollins union strike and still no word from harpercollins execs.

if you want to support they currently have an open letter that you can sign to voice your support.

making the entry pay for publishing prohibitively low means that people who dont have extra social safety nets are essentially barred entry. which is bad for ALL OF US.

I signed and you should too: https://linktr.ee/hcpunion

Inflation’s biting everyone in the butt lately and I wanted to do something about it. So I grabbed 3 of my fave fantasy stories, chopped the price, and released ’em in this collection I’m calling WOMEN OF WONDER. You save 70% over buying each story separate!

Check out that shiny shiny book cover (made with #Inkscape)!

Boosts appreciated!
