I wanted to read this on #SerialReader @SerialReader but the app is glitching too much, so I read it on the Kindle app instead. 😢 Read this short story in bed with a stomach bug and loved it. It pokes fun at a pretentious book club of society women and just cracked me up, perfect distraction from being sick! Love Edith Wharton. 😂❤️ Book 4/4 for #BFCr4 so I guess I'm upping my goal to 6 books! #BFC is helping me read more, as is being sick. 👍

Centique Hope you feel better quickly! 5d
Emilymdxn Get well soon! I‘m glad you have the silver lining of reading more at least! 5d
MatchlessMarie I haven't been feeling great this week either. At least you found a brightside! 4d

Finished this quirky little book today! I was utterly charmed by its odd little ghost/supernatural stories, and its meanderings on butterflies, mosquitoes, and a particularly dense bit on ants as ethically superior creatures to close the book out. These Japanese ghost stories aren't scary, but can be creepy or funny. This public domain book (1904) is a gem. Recommend for #Scarathlon folks as a quick, odd read! Book 2/4 for #BFCr4. #SerialReader

Reading some more of these stories before bed. Loving this collection of Japanese ghost stories!! ❤️ #SerialReader

I'm not currently in the zone of PG&E power shut offs in the Bay Area, but I'm very close to it, so if the wind changes my power will be shut off. (Our electric company is shutting off power in much of the area due to high fire risk, and it could take up to 6 days for power to be restored.) Crossing my fingers.🤞

nelehelen Ahh hope you don‘t get affected! I‘m in the city but my work is in the red zone... soooo I‘m not sure if I‘m supposed to go to work tomorrow. Guess we‘ll just seee! 2w
Caterina @nelehelen Thanks!! Oh that's stressful, I hope you find out quickly and easily tomorrow whether you need to go in! 2w
Crazeedi I just heard about this on the radio, I hope you and @nelehelen stay safe and keep electri!! 2w

A great feminist utopian short story set in India. I found this gem on #SerialReader

For reading some of the early “feminist” stories from women of European heritage, I found this short story written in 1905 by a Muslim woman reversing the gender roles very interesting.

* Recommended if you enjoyed Angel Island by Inez Haynes Irwin or Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Bookwomble It's also collected in the tagged book, an anthology of Victorian/Edwardian sci-fi stories by women authors. I'd recommended it and it's companion volumes, The Darker Sex (horror/macabre), and Sisters in Crime (detective). 2w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Bookwomble That sounds excellent! I‘ll definitely look for it! 2w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I bet @BarbaraTheBibliophage would be interested in that book to. 2w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Bookwomble I‘m definitely interesting in finding more from other POV‘s. This one and Woman at Point Zero are two that I‘ve stumbled across so far. Both polar opposites too, but great women fiction. 2w

All y'all #Scarathlon folks have me inspired! As a break from school readings tonight I read the first issue of Kwaidan, a collection of Japanese ghost stories. Loved the first story in the collection! And so glad that #SerialReader had a non-Western option in the "horror" category! @SerialReader

LauraJ Very cool! 2w

Oh yeah!!! Already getting the stack ready for October!!!! #TeamStoker we got this one in the bag everyone! Let's DO THIS!!!! 👻💪🤓📖🎃
On a side note, Sweeney Todd has been replaced by The Hatching. I realized that this is more of a slasher book then a monster book after I took the picture 🤦🏻‍♀️😂

Clwojick Ohhhhh! Bye Sweeney Todd is a GEM! 3w
Melismatic Hey! When are you planning on the Dracula buddy read? I went to my local store today and they had no copies...wanted to know how much time I have to play with if I want to take part. 💪🏻 Thanks! 3w
TheReadingMermaid @Melismatic hey hon, the #DraculaBuddyRead starts Oct 1 but it is a short read so probably only a couple check-ins for it. 3w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Melismatic Dracula should be free in the public domain by now, so it‘s probably free on kindle and available on #SerialReader or at Project Gutenberg and Librivox 3w
