📚 Is there something like Calibre ebooks (for ebook management) that isn’t such a hot mess?
Me: “want to listen to our book, like an Ettin?”
(we both wore one earbud.)
🕊️📚 Double-preordering this Advent book from the incredible Shannon Walker Dycus: The Holy in the Night - Herald Press. You should too!
📚 Finished Reading: The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde.
Seemed like a solid idea, but just ended up feeling silly. (And not in a good Monty Python way.)
📚 Finished The Far Reaches short stories.
Sci-fi to open the mind.
I recommend the stories by: James S. A. Corey, Ann Leckie, John Scalzi.
Unfortunately only available on Amazon.
📚 Almost done reading Wool (Silo #1).
Has anybody finished 📺 Silo season 1 and also the books and therefore knows if I should keep reading the rest of the books before watching the show?
📚 I had been looking to try Martha Wells. This humble bundle is a great opportunity to get started.
📚 The Heron Haven library is coming along nicely.
🎲📚 reading my new copy of Whitehack 4th edition.
Between this and Knave 2nd edition it’s a great time to move away from D&D while keeping the best bits and losing the worst.
(I really want a notebook version of Whitehack like a previous edition had.)
Isn’t the real question this: Is the work worth doing? Am I, a human being, working for what I really need and want–or for what the State or advertisers tell me I want? Do I choose? I think that’s what anarchism comes down to. Do I let my choices be made for me, and so go along with the power game, or do I choose, and accept the responsibility for my choice? In other words, am I going to be a machine-part, or a human being?"

📚 Half Price Books was 🔥 today
Finished reading: Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Q. Sutanto 📚
It’s like Nicholas Sparks tried to write a Coen Brothers script.
📚 As someone who has taken copious notes and lessons from the podcast over the years, I’m excited to read this accumulated tome of wisdom.
📚 I’m going to read the fantastic An Elegant Puzzle again.
Anybody want to do a reading group? Maybe chapter-based discussions?
📚📑 Another goodie from Death to Deconstruction.
