"It is a wound that bleeds when any hand but that of love touches it, and even then must bleed again, though not in pain."

So many parts of this book I marked as favourites, but I think that this one might be the one I liked the best. ??❤️?????#oscarwilde #nonfic #sorrow

Started reading this little gem, and so far I'm really enjoying it. It's a very honest and touching insight into this extraoridnary man's mind.#oscarwilde #nonfic 📚📚💘

Any other linguistics geeks & John McWhorter fans in the house?? (I wish Litsy counted “The Great Courses” audio books as books, LOL.) I have listened to all of Prof. McWhorter‘s podcasts, courses, and audio books to date, and own both his friend Gaston Dorren‘s books (Babel & Lingo). I‘ve got 1 Audible credit left to spend & I already have most of Steven Pinker‘s...anyone have a good #linguistics #audiobook to recommend?? #recommendations #nonfic

rretzler I‘ll have to give these a try. I have a sub to Great Courses Plus 7mo
CKBrooke @rretzler All of John McWhorter‘s are fantastic if you like linguistics! If you aren‘t familiar with him, I highly recommend his TED Talk on YouTube, entitled “Txting is killing language - JK!!”, and his podcast, Slate‘s Lexicon Valley. 😀 7mo
rretzler Thanks! I think just about everything is killing language! 7mo
CKBrooke @rretzler Ooh...I used to think that too. Then Professor McWhorter changed my mind! ;-) Linguistics is the study of how people actually speak (descriptivism), versus, say, a grammarian (prescriptivism) who studies how we write, or ‘ought to‘ speak. But language is constantly shifting, evolving, changing. Definitely give his TED Talk a listen! I found it most enlightening. ☺️ 7mo

#violet is my favorite color! But I don‘t seem to have very many books that shade in my collection. Luckily I have these two: Take The Cannoli by Sarah Vowell and Beyond Heaving Bosoms by Sarah Wendell & Candy Tan. Both books have made me 😂with laughter. And learning about the #magicalwang in Beyond Heaving Bosoms is a gift that keeps on giving.

I've been challenging myself not to check social media between classes and reading a book instead. Two (short) books finished this week. #librarybook #librarybooks #nonfiction #nonfic #feminist #feminism #purple

TheBookstorePodcast This was such a great, short read. I really enjoyed it and find myself recommending it to people who want a simple introduction to feminism. 2y

Becoming Bicultural: Risk, Resilience, and Latino Youth | Paul R. Smokowski, Martica Bacallao

As the aging non-Hispanic white workforce retires, they are likely to be replaced by young Latino workers. Considering the rapid growth and relative youth of the minority population, it is critical that we focus attention on promoting the health, well-being, and academic achievement of minority children, particularly Latino youth, given their substantial role in the future of the United States. 🙌🏽 #requiredreads #homework #nonfiction #nonfic
