manifesta: (Never Turn Down Tea)

follow friday

I've been reading lots of books that make me happy lately, and I'm torn between muttering about each them in a single post or critically analyzing each of them in separate posts or sitting on them like a dragon. What the posts would not be are reviews. I would most likely be picking apart certain aspects of the book, aspects that relate to social justice issues in some fashion or another. I wouldn't discuss the writing, plot, characters, etc. unless it was relevant in some way. If asked, I could certainly say if I recommended it, but the analysis itself wouldn't paint a complete picture of the book, and I'd acknowledge that.

It's [community profile] followfriday!

[personal profile] madame_parker is new-ish to DW and is a bookworm with fannish interests. Go say hi!
[personal profile] ephemere talks about gaming, culture, history, and economics.
[personal profile] lea_hazel comments on books and general general geekery, and makes the occasional but highly amusing psychological observation.

[community profile] three_weeks_for_dw starts on Monday the 26th! To echo [personal profile] erda the easiest way to contribute, if you don't have the time/don't want to write up anything in a post, is to comment! I'll be posting... something. It's a surprise (even for me!).

Thank you so much for the Follow Friday rec. :)

And I already have a huge list written of the many shiny posts I'll be making during the three weeks for dw fest.

Critical analysis sounds brilliant, and it would be great to hear about books that make you happy!

Thanks for the rec :D

I, too, would like to read your critical analysis of those books! (The image of a dragon sitting on books is really rather adorable, haha.)
