This book sat on my shelves for too long because I was daunted by the size of it. I shouldn‘t have been concerned because I was easily drawn into the story and the pages flew by. It was an overly long parts but I didn‘t much mind. Two timelines, one modern with scholars rushing to discover the secrets held in a trove of newly discovered documents, and one set in the 1660s about a female scribe. I found it all fascinating. #24in2024

I need this. At €46 it will have to wait until next month though.

I got reprimanded by @Clare-Dragonfly for not drinking tea while reading this book, so here is a proper set-up 😜

I adored this book and found myself chuckling often at the banter and smiling at the profound conversations. Just an absolute delight. I will hope for a return to this world but would be satisfied if this is the ending.

This is a beautiful philosophical study around the pursuit of happiness in Western societies, which has created an entire cult dedicated to assessing everything through a filter of pleasure and of the duty to be happy.
I just picked it at a wrong time and I hope I'll revisit it more seriously at a better time in the future.

Did you know...in Russian there are two completely different words for light blue and dark blue and experiments have shown, it takes Russian native speakers a fraction of a second longer to place blue objects into color categories than e.g. red ones, as they have to decide between light or dark blue🥴

I can confirm this, but this book is very easily sorted into the light blue category 💙🤓

Sorry guys! I totally dropped the ball this week. It‘s been a crazy couple of weeks. I‘ll get the questions up sometime tonight or tomorrow.

This book force feeds academic theories with little evidence beyond the authors‘ opinions. I wanted a close look at the Matsutake mushroom, instead I got many long theory papers without proper citations.
Read for a biased look at the social & cultural world of Matsutake & for even more bias around the science. Some basic mushroom biology is included
1/5 Skim this book if you want to learn about Matsutake mushrooms; read for academic theory

iread2much To be clear, I am an academic, so I am used to reading academic papers (I‘m in science and we don‘t use theory as much, but I do occasionally publish in social science) but I don‘t like when people don‘t cite things properly if they are writing with academic materials and I really don‘t like when people make huge assumptions without the data (or citations to the data) to back it up (edited) 4d

Good time for a reread !

My heart feels a lot right now. I imagine his is broken. I know B. did the right thing, but I am so afraid. I don't think my heart can hold everything that will come if this wicked man gets back in the office again. I will do everything I can to get peoplx to vote. I will vote. I will continue to try and help others like I always have. I will try to hold on to some hope…we are at a critical point right now. This is not the time to sit it⬇️

JenniferEgnor out. We can choose to work to create a more loving, just, and democratic future, or we can choose a fascist, totalitarian nightmare. Choose wisely. This is not a game, this is not hyperbolic. Pay attention. This is it, folx. If we go over this cliff, there is no coming back from it. Choose wisely. Remember this—in the end, fascism comes for everyone…even the fascists. Choose wisely. 4d
Leftcoastzen Love this post , ready to reread this book 4d
dabbe Agree 💯! Dare I say #harrisandbuttigieg!!! We're getting involved in the swing state of Arizona, too! 💙💙💙 4d

Cuilin @dabbe I would love Buttigieg too though I think they‘ll pick a governor from a swing state though I heard Mark Kelly is also on the list!!! 💙💙💙 3d
Cuilin I spent a lot of time on TikTok yesterday, checking out the vibes. I feel really hopeful most that younger generation seem to be ready to vote for Harris. 3d
dabbe @Cuilin We love M. Kelly and all he's done for our state. We lost our governor (Napolitano) to Obama's administration, and our state has just now just recovered. I would hate to lose a Senate seat because who knows what our purple state would do if he left. 3d
Cuilin @dabbe I believe your governor is a Democrat and gets to pick a replacement for Kelly if needed? 🤞 3d
dabbe @Cuilin Yes, but then comes an election, and that's when things can get crazy in this state. 🤪 3d
Cuilin @dabbe got it. NH is a weird little purple surrounded by blue. 3d
dabbe @Cuilin I have high hopes for both of our states! #gobigblue 3d
