I've had such an influx of long-awaited sequel pre-orders arriving plus library holds coming through, and then a friend lent me yet more books!

I love having so many reading options that I need to use the notes app to keep track of my queue. 🥰

Now I can move on from, "It's not hoarding if it's books," to "It's not a pile of unread books, it's my tsundoku".

Emma, by Jane Austen.
You are but one and twenty, a gentleman’s daughter, but fixed on never marrying so that you may care for your hypochondriac father; this, however, does not dissuade you from the disastrous matchmaking you attempt for others, which goes wildly awry, embroiling yourself even, though you are always sensible to the distinction of rank.

To whoever is DDOSing Internet Archive: stop it right now so I can continue browsing for new books I've never heard of but need to add to my TBR :blobcatangery: :blobcatfluffangry:

@Knightky recorded my public reading of “Sirens Don’t Sing Underwater“ at BookFest on Sunday. It was a noisy venue, but I got good and close to that microphone and used my theatrical projection. #PublicSpeaking #reading #AuthorsOfMastodon #sirens #mermaids #ShortStory #GreekMythology #mythology #Odysseus #SpeculativeFiction #SFF #CanLit #IndigenousCreatives https://youtu.be/_fOz-di71s8?si=qVRGpKAEC2fiE1MD

A spy thriller set in Syria. What could possibly be wrong with that? Well, quite a bit actually...

What's better for the environment: A paper book, or an e-reader? NPR spoke to industry experts about the rise of digital reading, how the publishing industry is reducing waste, and whether using a fossil-fuel-derived plastic e-reader is a better option than a paper book. The short answer, according to professor Mike Berners-Lee (yes, he is Tim's brother): It depends.

Collect ARCs? Like debut YA horror that's fun and kind of Stranger Things-esque?

There are so many updates happening on Google it’s destroying the publishing business. Or is it? It’s time to start experimenting with other platforms to drive traffic to your websites. On of these is Flipboard combined with the Fediverse. The first thing to do is to change your thinking. It’s no longer about keywords but now you have to cater to readers and their interests.

Earlier, I began reading "Mind Games" by Nora Roberts. It promises to be an excellent read.

Book description: The #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Identity presents a suspenseful new novel of tragedy and trauma, love and family, and the evil that awaits. As they do each June, the Foxes have driven the winding roads of Appalachia to drop off their children for a two-week stay at their grandmother’s. Here, twelve-year-old Thea can run free and breathe in the smells of pine and fresh bread and Grammie’s handmade candles. But as her parents head back to suburban Virginia, they have no idea they’re about to cross paths with a ticking time bomb. Back in Kentucky, Thea and her grandmother Lucy both awaken from the same nightmare. And though the two have never discussed the special kind of sight they share, they know as soon as their tearful eyes meet that something terrible has happened. The kids will be staying with Grammie now in Redbud Hollow, and thanks to Thea’s vision, their parents’ killer will spend his life in supermax. Over time, Thea will make friends, build a career, find love. But that ability to see into minds and souls still lurks within her, and though Grammie calls it a gift, it feels more like a curse―because the inmate who shattered her childhood has the same ability. Thea can hear his twisted thoughts and witness his evil acts from miles away. He knows it, and hungers for vengeance. A long, silent battle will be waged between them―and eventually bring them face to face, and head to head…

Social media is so bad for my TBR list 😂 or good, depending on how you look at it. 🤔 :blobcatread: 📚

I still read a lot of "paper" books and take A LOT of notes which often slows me down. My process is to transcribe from the book, there has to be a better way.

Does anyone have any apps that are very streamlined for taking notes while reading on paper & automatic appending to a note?

Update: Actually, Highlighted is exactly that. Capture OCR highlights from books, export a TXT/Markdown/CSV…

Thank you @damirstuhec so much for building Highlighted 🙌🙏
