Question: Is Anyone Interested in Doing a Ms Marvel ReadAlong With Me?

I just plowed through the first 10 volumes of collected Ms Marvel strips, covering 2014-2019, in like two days. They are sooooooooooooo good, and there is so much to discuss.

DCIB Book Club One Off Reviw: Angela Thirkell’s Cheerfulness Breaks In, History As it Happens “All You Can Do is Trust in God, and Isn’t That The Worst Part?”

This book is so FASCINATING, and also so odd, that instead of telling y’all to read it and then having an equal discussion, I want to write a really in depth review so you can make an informed decision, and I can get all my thoughts out. Mostly you need to know that it is weirdly relevant to 2020/2021, as you can see by the quote above summing up a character’s feelings.
