💗 First book of the new year! Now I have to wait for Vol. 6 . . . 😔
Merry Christmas to me! 💗🎄💗
Look. I got my hair cut. The salon is just steps away from my local indie. I was OBLIGATED to go
OMG. I got to go to Birch Bark, the bookstore that Louise Erdrich owns!
“If there is any clear message in the fossil record, any distilled takeaway that the entire history of life on Earth speaks to with a full and clear voice, it‘s that no species is inevitable.”
“We must work to create a society with liberty and justice for all. We will fail and fail and fail at this goal. Our failure is the history of the world. But our humanity is in the fact that we never cease to try.”
Eager to read this!
“. . . I described my classmates as “a herd of mouth-breathing fucktard yokels who wade around in a miasma of cliché so thick you can practically smell the bacon and cabbage and cow shite and altar candles.” Even assuming I was having a bad day, I think this shows a certain lack of respect for cultural differences.”
This is my first Tana French. So far, so good!
Oh, how angry and despairing I am! I already knew and agreed with Synder‘s big points on healthcare in the US, but he is very good at weaving in the details, the effects, the havoc . . . This book is tiny, but mighty. Another one I wish I could make all people in the US read.
Doing my part to keep my local indie alive through the pandemic! 💗
That‘s quite the dedication.
(In the summer of 2016) “. . . it was common to hear in certain circles the disbelieving cries, “This is not America,” or “I don‘t recognize my country,” or “This is not who we are.” Except that this was and is our country and this was and is who we are, whether we have recognized it or not.”
Bookstore haul! Got these beauties. (Am currently re-reading Wolf Hall to get ready for the new Mantel.) Plus - cute kitty sticky notes. Remember, bookstores make a lot more money from the sidelines than the books, so get those socks, pencils, stickers, etc. when you get your books.
I need more! These boys are going to kill me. 💗🤺
