Day 21 of #RiotGrams is How-to books

I'm reading THE GIFTS OF IMPERFECTION: LET GO OF WHO YOU THINK YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE AND EMBRACE WHO YOU ARE
You can see what I think of this chapter by the note I made

Prairiegirl_reading I have said this book could have been titled Angie, I‘m going to tell you your life. It probably won‘t have sold as well but 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2mo

Just read Gmorning, Gnight by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jonny Sun.

This one hit me particularly hard. My demographic is rarely the target audience for anything and I notice this more and more.

Day 19 of #RiotGrams is #librarycards and I have quite a few. Super handy for getting ebooks and accessing electronic resources. Did you know that in #california, you can get a #librarycard for most any public library as long as you are a CA resident? Not pictured is my Beverly Hills library card.

Day 6 of #RiotGrams is a book outside of your comfort zone
This book was given to me by my grandmother when I was 15.

She handed me this and said, "I know you don't like romance but I really think you will like this." That was almost 25 years ago. My grandmother died when I was 16.

This book has traveled with me to all the places I have lived since then. I have not yet read it.

Perhaps this is the year.

My current read is THE CITY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT by Charlie Jane Anders. Also, the first ARC I mustered up the courage to ask for from a publisher

Hey friends! I know I've been absent from Litsy the second half of this year but I wanted to pop in and say I have a real live story in a real live book! Best Women's Erotica of the Year Volume 4. It's available for purchase now and I highly recommend it and I am also sooooo biased!

Weaponxgirl Looks great! And I get so frustrated with the love argument. Like cool come at dismantling the systems that keep racism in place from a place of love but love on its own ain't gonna do sh*t. 1y
