I spent most of the last two years reading Myths/fairytales/folktales/folklore and theoretical writings about them and storytelling in general. There's is still a lot about that subject that I'm really interested in but I'm going to take a break to let what I've learnt shift and settle and focus on books about disability/gender/feminism/queerness with some wildcards thrown in (and poetry, there will always be poetry!)
