A thoroughly charming collection of essays and comics exploring different kinds of love, from romantic and sexual love to fandom love, self-love, familial love, and beyond! I was delighted to find favorites like Maia Kobabe, Dana Simpson, and others. Lots of queer rep too! I did skip one essay that felt like it was by a guy who thought girls owe him sex. #LGBTQ #Nonfiction #Love

Anyone else spend a ton of time in text RPGs when you were a teen? I started in middle school and absolutely loved playing/writing these games. I mostly did fandom RPGs, but sometimes I ventured into original RPGs. My friends and I also exchanged notebooks at school with RPGs in them we were playing/writing together.

Clare-Dragonfly When I was a teen? I did text role playing well into my twenties 😆 I miss it! It was so much fun. 5mo
Kenyazero @Clare-Dragonfly That's awesome! I miss it too. I don't know why I stopped when I went to college, maybe just got busy. 5mo

So far, I'm enjoying this collection of comics and essays by various authors, illustrators, and others. I was delighted to find this comic by Dana Simpson in the collection 🥰

I've savored every moment reading through this fabulous anthology of stories and comics over the past couple of weeks. It was the perfect reading material when I only had a snippet of time here or there.

Love this description of the 90's and the footnote! Apparently my teenage years were during a "quaint and totally wild moment in time." Loving this collection so far, and I really liked this story by Gabby Rivera.

So this is my #digitallibrary stack for @24in48

This is all from Hoopla. The app got an update and I‘m not sure I like it, since it put a “play “ button in the middle of the boom covers I have checked out.

I‘m going to get my #MargaretAtwood read for #authoramonth lead by @Soubhiville . I‘m going for GN because I‘m not sure Imhave time to finish anything else.

Bookjunkie57 I don‘t like the update either and I didn‘t notice the play button. I think I don‘t like it cause I‘m a grumpy old lady and I don‘t like change 👵🏾 😂 3y
LibrarianRyan @Bookjunkie57 I have seen a things I don‘t care for but we shall see. 3y
Soubhiville I had no idea how many graphic novels she was involved with! 3y
LibrarianRyan @Soubhiville I know. I was looking for audiobooks and found so many. This was just all the check outs I have left for the month. I‘m going to ILL all the others. 3y
Eyelit Yeah I don‘t like the play button on books/graphic novels. Weird decision on their part to apply it to all materials hopefully they fix in a future update 😂 3y

A good variety of comics and stories, of creators I recognized and ones I didn‘t. I enjoyed some of the contributions more than others, but that‘s to be expected in an anthology. 4/5 #comics #anthology #novemberreads

I‘m really loving this collection of essays/comics. It‘s not only about geeks finding love, but ultimately finding themselves. This particular paragraph resonates for me for a few reasons. The full essay itself is fantastic. #24in48

Soubhiville Wow, you‘re doing great! 4y
Annl Love that paragraph and so true! 4y

So my proposed #24in48 #tbr is a teensy bit Lemire heavy... 😁

Not pictured: short story collections on my kindle. So I‘m totally prepared for this weekend.

Looking forward to this readathon and hopeful I can actually accomplish 24 hours of reading!

LibrarianJen Good luck! 🙌🏼 4y
UwannaPublishme Great stack! Happy reading! 🙌🏻 4y

Pretty excited about this holiday appropriate #bookmail 😁
I feel the need to point out that this does not break my book buying ban because I preordered this back in early December. I know no one but me is keeping score, I just had to clear the air, so to speak. 🤣

dariazeoli Lookit the cats! 😁 5y
Eyelit @dariazeoli I have to admit that was a big selling point 🤣 (ok, I also liked its predecessor, but really - all the kitty cats) 5y
