This morning, I am sitting in my apartment with a glass of fresh cold-brew and my laptop, going through my Pocket list.

Reading and writing are how I form new thoughts and, eventually, articulate them. What I choose to read matters to me, on both a personal and professional level. Usually I strive for a balance between familiarity and novelty, and a mix of topics and formats. Lately I’ve been reading more articles and blog posts than long-form work or books. It’s not quite my ideal, but a natural consequence of being ill, so I’ll deal with it.

Here’s what I’m reading this morning:

And my current books:

  • Fading Scars: My Queer Disability History by Corbett OToole. It’s really long, but fascinating, and covers a lot of history that I know embarrassingly little about.
  • Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer, a creepy scifi novel that I just finished. Eurgh. Would recommend, if you like that sort of thing.

So…sci-fi, disability stuff, tech, knitting, coffee. Can you tell where my interests lie?
