Bailedbailed

My pledge this year is to not waste time on books I don‘t enjoy. Both of these have been on my tbr shelf forever…and #bookspin and #doublespin has cleared them. I bailed on them both.
@TheAromaofBooks

BarbaraBB That‘s a relief 😉 15h
TheAromaofBooks So good to get those kinds of books of the shelf - ones I feel guilty about not at least giving a chance, even when I am pretty sure I'm not going to like them! I had someone do a bingo list last year comprised entirely of titles she thought she was going to bail on and she cleared all 25 off her shelves that month!!! 3h

Hmm hmm hmmm. Whewww!!! Man Alive! The power. The pain. The amazing land. The anger. Just one more thing that I didn't realize till reading - American government desecrated the land stolen from the Indigenous people for nuclear testing. Knew facts separately; but now I see the whole picture clearly. What a great book!!! Thank you @jmofo Thank you so much!!! @sprainedbrain @arubabookwoman

1 I have so many challenges. I love using several prompts, across the challenges, for one book.

2 I have to steal @Amiable I want to be calm.

3 It has a nonlinear timeline that throws me off at times.

5⭐️! This is a wonderful teaching tool not just about fry bread, but about Native American culture. The beginning is a wonderful, poetic story about making fry bread today and its history, paired with amazingly evocative illustrations. At the end of the book each line of the poem/story is explicated in greater detail for older children. Both sections can spark important discussions. #WinterGames2021 #ImpulseRead #TeamGameSleighers @StayCurious
