Once again Ralphy and his friend Jackson Johnson team up to help children understand their feelings. Today is the first day of school and some of the students do not feel good : some are scared, anxious or sad. The dogs do their best to help the children feel better, offering them advice to feel better.

Just a reminder If you have a huge collection of books, thats great, but if you dont, youre no less a reader. Love for books has many forms.
Watch the full video here:


1) Fantasy&ScienceFiction Nov/Dec 2023 - Honestly a pretty solid issue, if I named the ones I liked it would basically be 2/3 of the issue.

2) Whatever Gets You Through: Twelve Survivors on Life After Sexual Assault - From around 2017 yet still quite relevant. Accessible yet powerful reads. I recommend it, but also taking care while reading this one.

3) Gyo - A horror manga by Junji Ito. One of the big three he's made (about 400 pages). I haven't seen a lot of talk about this one. Its generally 'go read Tomie and Uzumaki'. I can see why. Gyo is so strange, even compared to those two. That said I really enjoyed it. It bounces between campy and incredible body horror. Its hard to recommend unless you are familiar with the artist and can handle his work, then give this a shot.

Working On:

1) Tomie - Another horror manga by Junji Ito and one of the 3 tomes. This one explores the horrors of lust and I feel would appeal to feminists if you can stomach the surreal and visceral horror. Not done, but this one makes me think alot about misogynistic trends in society, its really interesting.

2) Octavia's Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements - A short story collection from diverse writers writing about possible futures and exploring social justice topics. Only a little way in and I like the stories more than no so far. They also seem incredibly short (a few pages) so this may appeal/turn off. I like short stories so I'm ok with it.

Double review! Killer Notes by CJ Barlowe:

"A quick read, with the high strung suspense of a thriller, leavened with humor and some very steamy moments."

"I read this book in one sitting. And don't worry - there is an HEA."

I'm forever getting lost in a book my family tells me they've had conversations with me of which I was unaware. Now they stand in front of me until I've sufficiently emerged. Smart family.

"Museums, Heritage, Culture: Into the Conflict Zone" by Kavita Singh (2015).

"But think for a moment of the history of museums. Think of the way their collections have been built, and the purposes they have served. Think of the violent encounters that often lay behind the collecting of curiosities in the age of exploration or think of the museums built by missionaries to display pagan gods wrenched away from natives. Think of the vast collections built (and the ways these were built) during the age of colonialism, with entire monuments transported across the seas and re-erected in museum galleries. Think of the nations transformed by revolutions, where treasures were violently wrested away from the church and presented as desacralized avatars in museums".

The Lepidoptera of Ceylon by Moore, Frederic, 1830-1907

Christmas is coming and you are still struggling to find the right book to give This will keep him/her quiet for a while:
"A Viable Future",
Think of it as a detailed reader on the alternative to the decidedly unviable growth-obsessed society and economy that is fracturing and decaying before our eyes.
Affordable paperback (or free download).

1995 A red leather book with gold text

This image showcases a book that has a striking red leather cover, giving it a classic and sophisticated appeal.
The cover itself is well-preserved, reflecting the light in a way that highlights the texture of the leather.
The book's title and possibly the author's name are etched elegantly in gold text on the cover, adding a touch of opulence to the overall design.
The book appears to be bound very neatly, with attention to detail, indicating its high quality.
It's a stationary item, suggesting it could be a part of a library or a personal collection.
The vibrant red color and the shiny gold text stand out, making the book quite eye-catching.

One of the first books that inspired meaningful thinking about interface design was released early in the scheme of things. Clement Moks from 1996 was my go to book in the formative days of web design. It provided approaches and strategies to screen design that simply hadnt been captured and it did so visually.

It helped me hone my craft and articulate the value of UI design to clients.

When I saw Erica Heinz was writing a book about experience design I subscribed to updates as it took shape. And once I saw the printed version it felt like a spiritual successor to Clements book.

delves beyond the art of screen design and into the more nebulous questions of why and how.

Im always on the lookout for new books for the design library. Most are compendiums and surveys of a particular designers portfolio or a collection of work from others. Every once in a while there is a rare gem like by Frank Chimero that digs into the soul of design.

Think in 4D occupies a space that touches on the good parts of all these books and wraps it up in a pragmatic tome.

Library haul day!

I Knot Your Damn Omega by Devyn Sinclair. Im not a huge Omegaverse fan but sought out a few lately for reasons. Its probably been a couple of years since I enjoyed one, which is sad. This one is heavy on the reverse harem sex scenes (meh) but also has an actual plot (). TWs for toxic parent, dead parent, violent-ish chase and primal play, and twin issues. No actual shifting.

Today's review: "The Monk's Lair" by Ellie Thomas:

"A gothic 18th century story... Christian and Sam's chemistry is sweet and wonderful and brings a lovely romance to the story. IAn easy-to-read novella filled with twists and surprises and very likable characters."
