AHHHH MY FIRST SEMESTER OF GRAD SCHOOL IS DONE. Chronic illness stuff has been acting up lately so I barely made it through, but now I am done, and in 7 hours I will be starting my ~12 hour journey home to NC for Christmas. Hopefully that means lots of reading.🤞 Audible gave me free books in a settlement thing, so I also have 3 new audiobooks to look forward to! (After I finish my current reads 😂)

Eggbeater Congrats on finishing your first semester! 🎉👏👏👏 7h
Caterina @Eggbeater Thank you!! 😊 6h
LiteraryinLititz Congrats for getting through the semester! I hope you have a relaxing trip with lots of reading. 💜 5h

The second Night Vale book was as fun as the first. If you enjoy quirky horror comedy, this is a good pick even if you haven't heard the #podcast (it is much more fun if you have, though). #science #religion #parallelworld #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtcharacter

Five good reads in November. The eye-opening Leaving the Witness and the melancholy A Piece of the World were my two favs. #novemberwrapup

I‘ve always had a special devotion to Mary Magdalene, and I found this book on our shelves by sheer chance one night. I turned around, and there she was. Looking forward to possibly getting to just sit with this at work tonight! #marymagdalenebrideinexile #marymagdalene #maryofmagdala #margaretstarbird #biblicalwomen #womenofhistory #womenofthechurch

Trigger Warning for a dead baby!
I was listening to this while feeding my daughter and all of a sudden the author is describing her 4 month old son‘s death. At most points in my life I could bear hearing that part of her story, but right now I‘m doing everything I can not to have those sorts of nightmares.
I love a leaving-a-cult memoir, but this was just average. The descriptions of JWs working within China was the most interesting bit.

eraderneely If you‘re interested in the book, but not in a place to hear about her experience with her son, just skip the last 15 minutes. 2w

Ending #NFNov with a book that I started reading at the beginning of Nov. I practice the Buddhist life philosophy of Nichiren Daishonin, a 13th century monk who believed that The Lotus Sutra contained the main teachings of the Buddha, as summed up in Nam-myoho-renge-kyo (I bow to the cause of law and effect). This book is simple with QandA, history, and descriptions of the main concepts, great for anyone interested. Details👇🏼#total 232, books-25

For #NFNov I wanted to share the Noble Blood podcast. It tells stories from royal history that are kind of bloody or sad. I‘ve learned a lot and the host has the best voice! In this episode I learned about the aftermath of the wedding of Margot of Valois and Henry of Navarre. Spoiler alert: there was a massacre. #TIL

raeintheworld Every single episode has been great! 2w
MallenNC @raeintheworld They really have! It‘s exceeded my expectations. 2w
