Not my usual, but for the next while I'll be manually approving followers. BC follower spam is apparently a thing now.

Apparently this is a thing. And I'm just... surprised, but also surprised that I'm surprised?

Don't know what this says about the US, but it by God says something...

IRS Guidance for Thieves, Drug Dealers, and Corrupt Officials

Hey all! Visiting family and having great time. This was exactly what I needed.

Hope everyone is well. I'll be back in a few days.

There is another here entwined with us /
Another girl who'll learn to hate before /
He learns to love, to break our curse and thus /
Release my life, for far too long endured

She'll hate and run and die and he will rage /
And I will feel another petal gone /
The last I have, and oh! I feel my age /
This Rose will die, and leave the Beast alone.

I said this morning that given everything, I'm thinking a holocaust book next, and as NP if they think Number the Stars or The Upstairs Room would be better options?

She says, in a deliberately creepy voice "Night, by Elie Weisel!"

And OMFG, the point is to teach the kid, not traumatize them!

Yes, they should read Night or something else that shows the worst horrors eventually, but like Mary Logan says, there's some truths they can wait a bit to learn (and should *never* accept)!

My nesting partner, sometimes...

Kid is in grade school. In addition to reguarl school assignments we are picking out 'history' books (fiction books that accurately depict different important points of history) to read with him. Working our way thought Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry right now, and introducing the reality of Jim Crow and the history of US race relations.

We're in PA near Allentown. Willing to try shipping stuff, by health issues will make that challenging so would rather they go to someone local-ish.

Any mastonauts have good reading resources on #polyamory #nonmanogomy and #queer #relationships?

I found a book that piqued my interest but I’d rather see if anyone else has a rabbit hole they enjoyed going down before I make my own.

Who don't we call important rabbis by their names?

I was just explaining the influence of the Tzitz Eliezer, and it occurred to me that I have no idea what the man's name actually is. Ditto the Rambam. Ditto many others.

Does anyone know why we do this/where this custom started?

I'm thinking of pulling off of non-Amazon retailers and registering it for KU. I've never put a book in KU before. I really hate how hard Amazons been pushing for a walled garden set up.

But I can't help being curious about if it would actually make a difference in terms of reaching readers...
