Steve Martin reacted to one of his books being banned in a school district in Florida in a very Steve Martin way.

Not only are books being pulled from libraries, but libraries are being de-funded. As much as I’d like to see this bullshit stop because the book banning crowd got trounced in elections this week…I’m not holding my breath. This all sucks.

Also sucks: sexism in birding books!

But in better news! There’s a new romance bookstore coming to the Twin Cities hooray! h/t to Smart Bitches Trashy Romances for that one.

November is Indigenous People’s month, so here’s Book Riot’s list of 12 memoirs by Indigenous people.

I don’t think I have it in me to listen to Barbra Streisand’s memoir, which is 48 hours long (!!!!), but here’s The Washington Post Review.

And on that note, I’m headed across the Atlantic for some literary-themed R&R (I planned part of this trip before my dog died, then extended it after. Because why not). I will be reading of course, and plan to pick up whatever I’m reading next in the UK. I may post while I’m gone. I may not. But as always, you can keep up with my adventures over on Instagram.
