I‘ve only sort-of participated in #readathons since being back in school, but I‘ll of course tag my normal everyday reading for @DeweysReadathon 🤓 #QueerBookClub pick for@to@orrow‘s meeting.

“I called him his true name. Léon, the one he‘d chosen himself. None of this was strange to me, a boy deciding his own name. The only strange thing was the fact that he knew mine.” #queerbookclub

“I love him on purpose.”
Took me about half of the book to get into it, but the second half is well worth it, particularly the “PS”-es. #queerbookclub

Read for the queer book club I‘m in. I enjoyed the writing. The ending wasn‘t entirely to my liking. But I think I would definitely read something else from her in the future.
I‘m glad there was some younger members at the club tonight it was a lot of fun. Hopefully the next one follows suit. I‘d like a friend.

“Adam is super practical about everything. He‘s the kind of person who always parks his car in the direction of his house, so he doesn‘t waste extra time when leaving for home.” #queerbookclub #audiobooking

brandybear22 I kind of do that, at least backing in and things. I just thought it was a lesbian thing. Maybe Adam is a lesbian. I‘ll bet they drive a Subaru. Practical AF 2y
brandybear22 I just responded before I realized that you tagged me, probably because you know I‘m like this and it is tres sexy 2y
kgriffith @brandybear22 Correct. 😉😘 2y

“To oppose something is to maintain it.”
I appreciate Le Guin‘s way of spinning out these simple philosophical statements. #bookclub #queerbooks #queerbookclub

Feeling very on brand for a certain segment of my identity Venn diagram today. Happy #Pride, Littens! Tagged book is this month‘s #queerbookclub pick; I won‘t be there for the discussion, but I‘m going to still try to read at least a few of the stories during my travel this Saturday.

sprainedbrain LOVE that shirt! 2y

Fridameetslucy Happy pride !!!! - this year I have to go to an unveiling so can‘t go to NYC pride 2y
kgriffith @Soubhiville I wanted the glittery silver but they only offered it on the high tops!!! Happy pride to you 💜 2y
kgriffith @sprainedbrain isn‘t it great?? I couldn‘t resist 2y
kgriffith @JoScho 🤗🏳️‍🌈🙌🏻 2y
kgriffith @Bookladylinda Thank you! 🏳️‍🌈💃🏻 2y
kgriffith @Fridameetslucy Aw, and what a year to miss NYC Pride, too 😔 I hope the unveiling is wonderful! 2y
readordierachel Love everything about this 👍🏼🌈 2y
Fridameetslucy @kgriffith omg I feel like an idiot. I have been home on a work injury since mid May and has lost track of time. An Unveiling in Judaism is when a gravestone is put on the burial site. In this case my friends 20 year old daughter who died a year ago. Nyc Pride is the weekend after - so I can go. Are you coming for pride in nyc ? (edited) 2y
kgriffith @Fridameetslucy oh goodness, I didn‘t think to ask for context, apologies for the inappropriate wishes; I was thinking something art related. 2y
kgriffith @Fridameetslucy and no, I‘m going to be in PR, but many friends of mine are heading to NYC for the Stonewall anniversary 2y

“Sometimes the gods just want to see what you are going to do.” I‘ve always hated the platitude that god doesn‘t give us more than we can handle, and feel like this is much more in keeping with my idea of what a higher power actually is: curious, not necessarily malevolent, but not seeking to spare me from anything, either. #queerbookclub #queerbooks

Notafraidofwords That‘s interesting. Hmmm. A nugget I‘m chewing on. 3y

Got this one for #queerbookclub today. I didn‘t know before I bought it that it‘s non-fiction. Not looking forward to it as much as I was before this realization. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

britt_brooke That makes me want to read it! I had no idea this was nonfiction. #stacked 3y
brandybear22 There‘s a fair bit of critique and theory, which I find engaging 3y
kgriffith @brandybear22 that‘s because you‘re brilliant. I like that about you. 💋 3y
