For people following me (echo) who love books!

I am seeking participants for a large-scale book exchange! It doesn't matter where in the world you are; all you have to do is buy a copy of your favourite book and send it to a stranger (whose details I'll provide in a private message). Sending out a pre-loved book in good condition works too.

Reportedly, those who participate receive an average of 36 books in return -- favourite books from strangers around the world, which is pretty exciting. I know I'm excited to receive whatever comes my way!

Are you interested in taking part? Please tell me -- comments or PMs -- and I will send to you all the details!

Happy sharing and reading!

The most difficult part about social justice sometimes is meeting somebody who is clearly on the same page as you about what is wrong and what are heinous crimes, but whose proposed methods consist of "we need bouncers comprised of real men to intimidate the nerds so discrimination doesn't happen."

The myriad of thoughts and emotions which follow - do you risk antagonizing them by engaging to politely tell them that the proposal is still problematic and patriarchal? Do you trust that your similar ethical stance will make them receptive? Will there just be backlash because "hey wtf I was on your side!"?

All of course complicated by how this post is on someone's feed where, two years ago, you yourself got unfairly jumped by over zealous folk for daring to question the still unjust and overly simplistic political labels of one of the worst vilifications of gamer culture since satanism.

Problematic.

Perhaps the worst part of assembling a game setting with loose basis on my experiences in MMORPGs is remembering the true-blue narcissists involved.

Quite amazing how much self-doubt manifests when planning a table of contents. There's so much culture and information to condense and transmit and so much uncertainty as to whether I have the eloquence or authority to do so with accuracy.
