Jules, reading

Joined 6 months, 1 week ago

Hi I'm Jules,

I read a lot of disability related more academic stuff and then mostly fantasy, science fiction / speculative fiction to relax.

I read mostly e-books for accessibility reasons. So if you're interested in a book on my lists, just send me a DM. I can point you to sources or just send it over.

I'm on masto and on pixelfed.

I was meeting new people, I was connecting with folks, and I started to see the ways that collective care functions as anti-ableism training for folks.", she said. People were becoming radicalized around care and disability through participating in the collective."
