      I found out my library uses hoopla and libby to let me borrow ebooks so no I read on my phone instead of doomscrolling all day. Working my way through the Hunger Games series at the moment, I can’t believe I slept on it for so long.

    I am telling my partner about almost all funny memes at Lemmy while they are reading a book. It is frustrating at times, when there are too many good memes.
