29 October, New York. I almost bump into an aged New York lady as I come into the grocery store and she comes out. ‘Oh sorry,‘ she says, ‘I zigged when I should have zagged.‘

Thanks for the recommendation @BlameJennyJane !

This was an interesting quick listen. I liked Kristi‘s honesty in her essays. I also liked how most of the essays all had a feminist take. This was read by the author and she was a great narrator.

When I read books like this it always makes me take a second look at my life and my habits. It‘s good to know if a change needs to be made.

Finally on my way! 17 hours of reading, sleeping and eating. Well, maybe watching a film at some point. After many obstacles I‘m at least on my way...

Lifeisasnap Glad BA could help you. They are the ones that were striking with us. I‘m glad they solved their situation to be running so they could help you. Enjoy your trip! 7h
Tove_Reads @Lifeisasnap I think it‘s their African daughter, Comair I‘m flying with. Glad it‘s not Conair! 7h

John Bird used to do a very good Harold Wilson and after one show Ned [Sherrin] was summoned by Hugh Carleton Greene, the director-general, and told that the prime minister was threatening legal action. ‘Tell him to go ahead,‘ said Ned. ‘Say that just because he‘s prime minister he shouldn‘t feel he ought not to sue.‘ No more was heard of the matter.

What an inspirational and moving memoir about growing up on a society as a black gay man, who has to navigate being gay and Black. It was a heartfelt story that really makes you think and pause about what it's like for others who are different then you.

Easy delightful listen, heart wrenching at times with moments of violence (CW) and Racism (CW) this story was a great addition to my #NFNov list

I liked this more in its second half, even though at times I wanted to throttle the narrator. 😂 Thanks for the read, @Julie548 ! @TheReadingMermaid I‘m sending this off to you on Saturday! @WriterAtHeart #womenreading #lmpbc
