Sapphic Book News, Naomi Rivers, 25 Books on Sale, Caturday, and More!

SapphFic Mischief Saturday Morning Graphic
Happy Pride!

Saturdays are when we round up all the sapphic book news from the previous week into one convenient location. Think of it as your personal queer reading directory! After all, we know the weekend is when so many of us are able to unwind for a minute and want to get lost in a good wlw book. What could be better?

The thick smoke from the Canadian wildfires have left New England, making it much easier to breath just in time for the weekend. Unfortunately, both TB & Miranda are furiously prepping for their big road trip in less than two weeks, so they’ll be in most of the weekend working. It’s all for a good reason, though. They can’t wait to hit the road and have time away from their computers.

Countdown to TB & Miranda’s Epic GCLS Road TripIn just 13 days, TB and Miranda will start their road trip to the Golden Crown Literary Society conference in Denver, Colorado!

How much trouble can TB get into on 2,000 miles of open road? How many embarrassing t-shirts does she plan to wear along the way? Subscribe to the new IHS Patreon page to find out.

TB and Miranda will be sharing their daily adventures, complete with photos exclusively for Patreon subscribers. If you want to be part of their epic road trip, click here to join them. Whether you select bronze, silver, or gold level, every supporter will get access to the roadtrip stories and photos.

Meet Misha Orange and White Cat

Meet Misha! Misha likes to cuddle under blankets and fall asleep on my neck. So when I read or work, I accommodate him by wearing a fluffy coat he can cuddle inside while he’s still close to my neck. Submitted by Shani, a reader.

Where the heck was TB?

TB loves exploring places near and far, so we’ve created a weekly game where TB goes on an adventure, snaps some photos, and then lets you guess her location.

To answer last week’s mystery, 85% of you were right. TB & Miranda visited the home of Emily Dickenson. Also 13% think Miranda had to explain the poems to TB. In a shocking twist, both TB & Miranda are rubbish when it comes to dissecting poems. When the guide asked for volunteers to read a poem, both TB & Miranda immediately looked to the ground, so they wouldn’t be called on.

Now for the new challenge. Due to the air quality emergency in New England, TB & Miranda stayed home this week. While the air quality wasn’t as dire as in NYC, it was enough to make their eyes and chests burn.

TB went back into her photo archives to share photos of one of the places she loved to walk her dog when she lived in London.

Here are some clues about the place.

1. The cemetery is located in in West Brompton in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and it opened in 1840.

2. It’s one of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries.

3. It’s the final resting spot of Emmeline Pankhurst, a UK suffragette who died in 1928.

4. This cemetery has appeared in many films including Sherlock Holmes (2009), Goldeneye, Stormbreaker, Johnny English, The Wings of the Dove, Eastern Promises, and The Gentlemen.

5. Beatrix Potter used to walk here and came up with character names from tombstones, including Mr Nutkins, Mr McGregor, Mr Brock, Mr Tod, Jeremiah Fisher and, Peter Rabbett.

Here are some photos one of TB’s favorites spots in her old neighborhood.

Time to vote on the mystery cemetery.

Where in the heck is TB?

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!
