My book subscription revealed! As a spider hater I‘m not loving the cover - but I do love Kate Summerscale so maybe I‘ll wrap in brown paper before I start reading! 🤣🤣🤣

Monica5 😂😂 I definitely would have to wrap it 😂😂 2d

squirrelbrain This is the one time when you could do with one of those really annoying ‘book club‘ stickers that we always complain about, strategically placed! 2d

Soubhiville I‘m with you on the spiders, but that sounds like a good read. 2d
AmyG It oddly looks fascinating but as someone who can be neurotic….I wouldn‘t want to read anything that will just give me ideas. 😳 2d
Mitch @squirrelbrain absolutely! 17h
Mitch @Soubhiville im not sure that the publisher made the best choice - putting one of the most popular phobias on the cover - and expect us readers to put our hands on it! 😮 17h
Mitch @AmyG I will promise not to share! And hopefully by the time I‘ve finished my personal phobia count hasn‘t increased! 😅 17h

For @sebrittainclark I‘d love to get to know you a bit as well, since we are #AuldLangSpine matches!

I was so excited to receive your list today!

My reading life is by audio in my car and at work and mainly physical books at home. I have a kindle but I don‘t use it very much.

I‘m in 2 bookclubs, both local but virtual since Covid. One is traditional, the other is topic based, so we all read different books that we feel fit a chosen topic. Fun!

Soubhiville I run the #AuthorAMonth challenge here on Litsy. I like to participate in a few challenges every year, and I usually change them up every year. In 2023 I plan to do #Booked2023, and this is my first time doing #AuldLaudSpine! 3d
Cinfhen Love this post!!! 3d

Ways to improve your team.
1. Increase similarity, not diversity.
2. Exploit synchrony.
3. Create healthy competition among teams, not individuals.

"The 1st step's to stop thinking so much about leadership....leadership can only be understood as the complement of followership. Focusing on leadership alone is like trying to understand clapping by studying only the left hand....it's no puzzle to understand why people want to lead. The real puzzle is why people are willing to follow."

This is a really interesting read – though you might have to resist the urge to start pathologising every inclination or distaste once you‘ve read it. Only 1 in 8 people with a phobia seek help, so I think it was really great of Summerscale to wisely include many comforting examples of people who have undertaken treatment with great success.

I related to Jamison in many ways and am appreciative to her for writing the book. It isn't easy living with mental illness, but she wrote in such a way as to be accessible to all.

The Trauma of Everyday Life | Dr Mark Epstein

I really keep trying to give white men the benefit of the doubt on trauma books they get published and I just really have to stop. Author attempts to use Buddha and Freuds approaches to trauma together, as if epistemologically they are aligned. Freud is a problematic elder to the way trauma in psychology is understood. Ugh.

Cozy Wood Wick candle and tagged book is getting me through today. I have bipolar disorder and reading about someone else's experiences with the disorder is comforting to me, even though it isn't always pleasant.

SamAnne Candles and reading help with my depression. Hang in there and glad you are doing self-care. 1w
WorldsOkayestStepMom @SamAnne I'm really bad about self-care, and tbh I never considered candles and reading to be self-care, but it definitely is. Thanks for pointing it out to me! 💖 1w
AkashaVampie I agree, @SamAnne. I read to get out of my head. As my tattoo says, "I've lived a thousand lives!" 1w

WorldsOkayestStepMom @AkashaVampie I love bookish tattoos! 1w
AkashaVampie @WorldsOkayestStepMom I will probably get more throughout my life. I first need to get one for my family. 1w
WorldsOkayestStepMom @AkashaVampie I have 3 tattoos currently, but I'm wanting a bookish one and one with a cat. Maybe one with both books and a cat! 1w

I really loved “The Ghost Map”, so I wanted to give this one a crack. It‘s all about the how the science/ art of decision making has improved over the centuries. I enjoyed reflecting on the process of making decisions and how key various human faculties are to a successful process.

CoffeeK8 This sounds really interesting! 6d
Pedrocamacho @CoffeeK8 It is 🙂 6d
