Reading is my break from the world of technology. And yet I'm on an app now, go figure.

I hate calling out sick, but it gives me a chance at least to finish my library book. #tea #kindle #library #ebook

It‘s getting cooler out, which means Pumpkin Spice Tea time! My parents gifted me this mug because I adore Rosie the Riveter. This book wasn‘t in the Litsy database, but I did borrow it from the NYPL. Support your libraries! #tea #kindle #ebook #library

So, is anyone else looking forward to the new movie? I‘ve decided to do a reread for this. #tea

SpeculativeFemale I am, and I was thinking about a reread, too, but then my massive TBR pile jeers at me, and makes a reread harder 😂 1y
Nerdfins @SpeculativeFemale I have a library book that I had been waiting for since August 31st that I just got that I am trying to also read, but I couldn‘t stop thinking of Dune. Dang TBR! 1y
TheSpineView Super excited! 1y
TugstenDragon I have been told the movie is good! So I am excited to see it 1y

sarahbellum I recently came across a new one to me in The Duke I Tempted: quim. Not a romance reader myself (read it for book club), so it‘s very possible this is more commonly used than I thought 2y
Nerdfins @sarahbellum Loki uses the phrase “mewling quim” as an insult at Natasha in The Avengers, which means weeping vagina. 2y

Essential Emily Dickinson | Emily Dickinson

Back to work from my Book Shopping Vacation. I finally found poetry I love and understand in this book. I never really got into poetry or realized how delightfully morbid Emily Dickinson was. #tea #poetry

Kimberlone The Apple TV+ show Dickinson is also wonderfully morbid and absurd. I was surprised how much I liked it! 2y

I took a few days off and I decided it would be a Book Shopping Vacation. I accumulated these from indie bookstores, the Women‘s Hall of Fame gift shop, and the Women‘s Rights Historic National Park gift shop. The Sotomayor and Colvin books are author signed. A good vacation haul. #bookhaul

I went to a used bookstore for the first time in a long time (thanks Covid...) and found some treasure! Hidden Figures is an ARC, and the pretty hardcover on top is a collection of Harlequin Romance novels. I‘ve never read from that genre before, but the prettiness of the binding stood out. #bookhaul

My attempt at cooking a low-fiber/FODMAP ramen. Just pure noodles with tofu and chicken broth, and the seasoning packet left out. It‘s amazing how many things have onions and garlic in it... #food

ImperfectCJ Oh, man...I'm in the process of reintroducing foods after a couple of months low-FODMAP. So far it's given me some valuable information. How long have you been doing low-FODMAP/how long do you still have? 2y
Nerdfins @ImperfectCJ Only a couple weeks so far. I haven‘t been told when I can start re-introducing stuff yet. This is so hard... 2y
ImperfectCJ @Nerdfins It's definitely a challenge. Do you have the Monash University app? That helped me a lot. Confusing at first, but it has some decent recipes and I like being able to search the database and have a good sense of "safe" amounts. I got a couple of cookbooks, too, but found them less helpful. 2y
Nerdfins @ImperfectCJ I do not yet. Thanks for the tip! 2y
ImperfectCJ @Nerdfins No problem! I'm a veteran of elimination diets, and low-FODMAP is almost certainly the most challenging I've done. It seems at first like there's nothing you can eat. Hopefully you get some relief and some good info out of it. 2y

The October Country | Ray Bradbury
post image

I‘m participating in Drawlloween, and the day 2 prompt was Mummy. In 1945, author Ray Bradbury visited Guanajuato, Mexico, and saw the disinterred mummies of residents whose families could no longer pay the rental fee for plots. This experience led to him writing the short story “The Next in Line,” which is part of the collection “The October Country.” I love reading this book every October #horror #art #raybradbury #halloween
