Friend of No Award Kat Clay offers six rules for giving away your books.

2. If you bought it more than five years ago but haven’t read it yet, give it away

The book you bought because you liked the cover. The book you got because it would be ‘good for research’. The book you bought when you went through a succulent obsession. If you haven’t read it five years after you bought it, get rid of it. You are not going to read that thing.

I feel so attacked right now.

Also, hopefully by the time this post goes live, the nice people from Savers will have picked up the three large bags of books and clothes I left outside my door this morning.

Everyone has linked to this, but that’s because it’s a wild ride: I ghosted my ex, and she’s about to be my new boss

Touched On: A tabletop party game of accidental fare evasion and undercover inspectors, based on Melbourne’s public transport network. I played this game on Saturday, and it was a little over-complicated, but also very fun.

Remember that time Queensland was dependent on slave labour? Or maybe you don’t, since it’s not a big part of Australia’s history curriculum. This article is a good overview of both the history and the current debate about statues of racist assholes:

I know it’s a minor thing, but I’m so stressed about this: Melbourne BOM radar goes offline for six weeks, so how can weather watchers ride out the storm?

Imagine how much less we’d be posting about marriage, an institution No Award is not really into, if we didn’t have this plebbyshite? Marriage equality’s silent supporters need to speak up.
