Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – The Reading Challenge at the Provincetown Library

All you queer darlings who might not have gotten the chance to visit Provinctown yet can still participate in town doings by taking on the library’s sweet reading challenge! Doing a reading challenge is like browsing the stacks and allowing book magic to wash over you in a sparkling wave! And actually, in order to meet the reading challenge, you do have to browse the stacks, and, people, really, is there anything more fulfilling than a good dose of library therapy? What are you waiting for?!

Oh, and my first book (“choose a book for its cover”), was Seraphina by Rachel Hartman. It wasn’t bad, lots of music and the dragons were kind of fun – basically like Vulcans – but does growing up have to involve getting a lover? I mean, there are other parts of growing up, although they seem to be few and far between in YA books. Always with the girlfriend or boyfriend! I was really hoping for a threesome here, as that would be the perfect solution to the ye olde I-like-him-but-he’s-betrothed-to-her-and-she’s-pretty-awesome-too, but that hadn’t happened by the end of the book, so it will just have to happen in my head.

Provincetown Library, you get one pingy-dingy! Thanks for making the winter months more fun and for keeping the reading fire alight!

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter, love, and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”)
