This is one of those books that has sat on my TBR for years and once I picked it up I could barely put it down.

Picking Cotton: Our Memoir of Injustice and Redemption | Jennifer Thompson-Cannino, Ronald Cotton, Erin Torneo
Pickpick

A game changer and a ground shaker. This true story was recommended to me in my Forensic Psychology class and I am endlessly glad I picked up a copy. I‘m going to warn you from experience- don‘t read this on the bus unless you‘re happy to cry in public!!

This book has me on a pepto-bismol diet. That so many people have suffered needlessly due to our “justice” system and I never knew about them....just devastating.

Cathythoughts I have this waiting on kindle 👍🏻must get to it 2d
Nebklvr @Cathythoughts It isn‘t an easy read but Oh, my....definitely well-written and thought provoking. 2d

#Top10oftheDecade #NonfictionEdition

Well this was hard! After leaving some beloved books on the cutting room floor, I think I have come up with my Top 10 of the 2010s. Every single one of these books left a profound impact, and changed my thinking in some way. These are the books that I still quote from, and recommend to others on a regular basis!

I may do another round for memoirs, I feel sad for Michelle and Trevor not being here. 😆

4thhouseontheleft Tagging a few people whose Top 10‘s I would love to see! If you did this already, I‘ll catch up eventually, I was off Litsy most of yesterday. ☺️ @wanderinglynn @julesG @Clwojick @DGRachel @Texreader @riversong153 @monalyisha @BookishMarginalia @JenlovesJT47 @SkeletonKey @ElishaLovesBooks @LaurensLibrary (edited) 3d
Kalalalatja I have only read She Said, but I need to check out all the rest! 3d
Scochrane26 I loved Trevor‘s book, too, but ended up leaving it off my list. I really need to read the New Jim Crow. I should be getting She Said soon. 3d

julesG I will try to come up with 10 books. Right now I'm wondering if I've even read 10. 3d
wanderinglynn Great list. I read Immortal Life and several of these are on my TBR. I‘ll have to think about my top 10. 🤔 3d
Cinfhen Great list!!! So many I still need to read 🤓hoping to add a bunch for my 2020 challenges!!! 3d
Addison_Reads Great picks! 3d
Amiable Two of yours made it onto my top 10 as well! 👍 2d
4thhouseontheleft @Kalalalatja This hashtag is adding greatly to my #TBR! 💓 💓 2d
4thhouseontheleft @Scochrane26 I think I may post a memoirs list tomorrow. Definitely read The New Jim Crow! I read it as part of a 6-week discussion series, which was fantastic. 2d
4thhouseontheleft @julesG Maybe top 5? Or do fiction! It will probably take me a few days to figure out my fiction list. 2d
4thhouseontheleft @wanderinglynn It was not easy narrowing it down! @cinfhen Thanks! This was a great idea! I shared my picks on FB as well, and my bookish friends are coming out of the woodwork. 😂 2d
julesG Good that the decade isn't over yet. 😉 2d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I felt sad leaving those two too! 2d
Cinfhen Hahaha!!! I like that your list inspired the bookish FB friends to resurface 😂😂😂 2d
4thhouseontheleft @julesG That too! Although I felt pretty comfortable posting nonfiction since I only have one on my radar for this month, and while I‘m enjoying it, it wouldn‘t make this list. 2d

Catching up on #Adventrecommends, this is my recommendation for day 6

This book shows all the injustice in the world and how certain groups of people (African Americans, the poor, mental disability and reading disability) are more likely to suffer from this injustice

TiredLibrarian This book is so powerful. Loved it. 6d
