Since the community is starting a reading group in the near future, I thought it would be a good time to talk about my reading habits and tastes.

My favorite books I’ve read in recent …

Currently reading: The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo πŸ“š

I have so much respect for how dark Bardugo is willing to go with these fairytales. The twist is consistent but shocks me each time.

I started reading A Court of Thorns and Roses because it’s, um, overdue & 9 people have it on hold (sorry people, thanks library for eliminating fines). I don’t know why I waited so long to start this series. It’s very much my thing. πŸ“š

Want to read: The Comedy of Survival: Literary Ecology and a Play Ethic by Joseph W. Meeker πŸ“š

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.

We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah β€˜TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
