Romeo and Juliet Folger Shakespeare Library | William Shakespeare, Barbara A. Mowat, Paul Werstine
post image

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Ages 12 and up? Have they even read this play? Romeo & Juliet portrays mafia rivalries, murder, broken family bonds, sexual puns (I mean, this is Shakespeare after all haha), teenage suicide, and mortality in general. My opinion may surprise you, though. I argue that the real question is: are adults ready for these conversations? This is an opportunity to discuss sensitive topics with kids.

[Text limit. More in comments.]

Megara Maybe the adult should read along with the kid and, as sensitive topics arise, don't wait to see if they ask about it---ask the kid about their thoughts. Have these necessary open dialogues. If parents and guardians create a safe space for kids to talk about things that may be uncomfortable, the kid's maturity and trust in the relationship will skyrocket. [1/2] 4w
Megara When they inevitably have to face when there's a death in the family, for example, they will be better prepared to process and grieve the loss. Don't censor these conversations--they are desperately needed. [2/2] 4w

Wow! I missed my six-year #Litsyversary! Considering I routinely go MIA (in all aspects of life), I feel like the six-year honor isn't fair to our more recent #Littens of the family. 😆

To be fair, I also have been doing all sorts of other things in life and reading books has fallen by the wayside or I'll pick one up then switch to another without finishing the first or I'm devouring other reading materials. Or YouTube and NHL, let's be real. 😆

Watching some cats and a buzzard/vulture (voiced by Neil Gaiman himself because of course he did).

@TheBookDream -- is this the sequel to night of a thousand cats? It even has a guy who collected an organ made of hair. He just needs a helicopter.

Did Neil Gaiman watch our truck stop movie?! 🤣

TheBookDream AHAHAHA! That movie was the BEST. Also great to see you back on here! 😀 5mo
Megara @TheBookDream okay I'm back for real now I swear lol. 4w
Megara @thebookdream also the only way night of a thousand cats can have a sequel IS IF it is set in the 2020s, the caretakers are all dead and gone, and some geocache adventurers stumble upon this castle where they find many, MANY cats who are far too attentive to the adventurers, they come across some skeletons, and begin exploring this overgrown castle and find its collections... OMG. We should do this. Make this amazing low budget film. Hahaha 4w

#PilgrimagesForLittens! ^img cred from SuitcaseMag

ThriftBooks.com and my BFF/coworker parted ways when the warehouse where we worked was shut down. I still recommend ThriftBooks.com and I would definitely work for them again if our journey takes us back to a different warehouse.
So as a rare book nerd, I had to add this article.

A sober #nonfiction about a pastor (Richard Lischer) watching his son die from cancer. Heavy #Christian influences—both #Protestant and #Catholic. Grapples with suffering and faith.

Dear Gods, first, y‘all are the best and Litsy is the kindest place on the Internet and I may go MIA for a while but I‘ll always come back to you.

Second, 1 (one) day after venting on Litsy that Rowling is some kind of awful transphobe and on Twitter I somehow got into a conversation about gender and wages. This led me to the person‘s page and... 😬 yikes.

*heavy sigh*

Megara I mean, absolutely yes to the retweeted post that no answer is not consent. 2y

As we know, R.K. Rowling is transphobic & therefore fans have claimed HP. Write your fanfic & please feel free to promote your HP fanfic in my comments!💜

I saw this display at 2nd & Charles. Apparently they didn‘t get the memo that Rowling is a TERF. The tagged book by J.K. Rowling is clearly transphobic.

If you want to read written by J.K. Rowling, buy used copies or borrow from your library so she does not receive another cent.

Patchshank Sorry for my ignorance, but what's a TERF? 2y

Megara @Patchshank ah, sorry! It stands for “trans-exclusionary radical feminist.” 2y
Patchshank Thank you for telling me. I really need to read up on feminism more. I've been seeing so many terms I'm unfamiliar with. 2y
Megara @Patchshank no problem! I try to be helpful when I can. (: Some folks encourage people to just google it. That stems partially from feeling “omg how many times do I have to answer this question?” and “you want to be an ally? Go educate yourself. It‘s not my responsibility to educate you.” But yeah, you‘ll find a lot of answers on google, but I personally welcome questions and dialogue. I‘m working on educating myself too. 💜 2y
