The Royal Society @royalsocietyBorn #OnThisDay in 1863 was astronomer Annie Jump Cannon. Cannon, who lost most of her hearing early in life, was one of the Harvard Computers, and her work was vital to the modern classification of stars, classifying around 350,000 stars over her career. #DisabilityHistoryMonth pic.twitter.com/EK0p5qa1YD

I'd love to see a graphic novel with this much drama in its imagery as well as text! #MSWL
Looking for ALL the graphic novel ghost stories! More more boo than blood and more spooky than scary for MG, but I'm all in for YA and Adult. Have a headless horseman retelling? Yes, please.

CrimeReads @CrimeReadsCreepy houses are here to stay! crimereads.com/whats-left-to-…
I am obsessed with houses born bad. I'd love to see more ghost stories (MG and adult) with a house as a major character! #mswl
Elizabeth Kingston @EKingstonBooksI'm sure one of you will write the Romance of two strangers duetting each other on TikTok with increasingly romantic songs as they fall in love and then they finally meet in person and why is this not already on Netflix?
Pulp Librarian @PulpLibrarianToday in pulp: a woman with great hair is fleeing a gothic house. Why?
Well this is a signal to the reader: they hold in their hands one of ‘those’ books – not a historical romance or a ghost story, but a modern gothic romance.

I'm always in the mood for a ghost story! A fresh take on classic themes (I am a sucker for haunted houses) for adults, spunky kids in spooky houses for MG, nonfiction how-tos: how to build a haunted house, Halloween how-tos, crafty Halloween. #MSWL QueryManager.com/Stacey3Seas

Philip Parker @parkerpj01@HistoriumU @FolkloreThurs Virtually unique to British Isles, #Bee Boles are recesses in walls were straw baskets containing #honeybees were kept (before bee hives invented). Mostly from C17 and C18, thousands remain. pic.twitter.com/g9Zdd7WTmI
#MSWL I'm always looking for nonfiction on bees. History of bees. Beekeeping. Beekeeper fashion. Honey recipes. Art featuring bees. You get the picture. ;)
