2021 is over in four days, fellow readers. I have been wearing the same pajamas since Christmas day, drunk twice my body weight in hot chocolate and watched every movie from my childhood on a reality-bending loop. Let’s dispense with the pleasantries and get into the links so that we can all get back to the important business of being lost in the pleasantly fuzzy time between Christmas and New Year’s.
- First off, hey look! Up in the top of the post! It’s not a bird! It’s not a plane! It’s just me, and I’m teaching a class in March about Black women in spec-fic. Sign up for it–I’m working hard on materials and reading for it, and would love to see you there. [Midnight & Indigo]
- What on earth are these? LitHub has put together a list of dreadful book covers on classic reprints and…ugh. Get a load of those Dorian Grays. [LitHub]
- BookRiot has released their addictive free book tracking spreadsheet. I’ve used it two years in a row and LOVE it. With a little editing, you can customize it to datafy all of your reading. Trust me, it’s more fun than it sounds. [Book Riot]
I said this was a quickie, and I meant it, fellow readers. If I can crawl out of the bottom of this cocoa cup I hope to do an end of year wrap up post–watch this space.
Here’s hoping you have a wonderful, safe, and well-celebrated transition from 2021 to 2022, everyone.
