Readathon for Autism Acceptance Month

April has arrived for this wack-ass year that is 2020, and that means, it is, once again, Autism Acceptance Month. Because this month is so difficult for plenty of us Autistic people due to a lot of misplaced faith in Autism Speaks (they’re a hate group) and lots of non-Autistic people speaking over us because they for some reason believe that’s what advocacy means, Bex came with the wonderful idea to hold a readathon. Read by Autistic authors, about Autistic characters, and support wonderful examples of good representation (read here what I mean by good representation).

Want more details about this readathon? Go check out Bex’s page on this for images, information and lots of great book recommendations! You can also follow their Readathon twitter account @AutieReadathon.

So here’s Bex beautiful bingo card for the readathon:

I’ve got some books ready to read this month, some already bought, some available on Scribd.

Scribd has a great assortment in books and I love how many audiobooks are available there. It’s like the Netflix for books. You pay a monthly fee to read everything they have available. They have ebooks, audiobooks, documents, music sheets and magazines. If you’re interested, you can sign up here.

Books I’m looking forward to:

  • Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde
  • No man of woman born by Ana Mardoll
  • A girl like her by Talia Hibbert
  • Ascension by Jacqueline Koyanagi
  • The white stag by Kara Barbieri
  • No room at the inn by Brooke Winters
  • Blood-bound by Kaelan Rhywiol
  • Into the drowning deep by Mira Grant
