Spare | Prince Harry the Duke of Sussex
post image
Pickpick

This book made me cry, laugh out loud, gasp, clench my fist in anger and frustration, and swoon. It has confirmed many things I long believed and showed me that things were even worse than I could‘ve ever imagined. This is the story of a man who took control of his life, who stood up for the love of his life and their children. Many others have tried to tell his story. Prince Harry has finally taken control of the narrative. Bravo! #IYKYK 👀😉

Bklover I‘m reading it now! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 1w

GingerAntics @FashionableObserver let‘s be honest, if I had a tube of it, it would have been in the picture, too. 🤣😂🤣 It really did have to be done!!! 🧡🧡🧡 2d
FashionableObserver @GingerAntics And the wild thing is: the stuff actually works! I haven‘t had to use it in the manner that poor Harry did (for obvious reasons), but I use it on my cuticles and they are soft! 🤷🏾‍♀️🤣 2d
GingerAntics @FashionableObserver I‘m not going to lie, I‘m a bit curious. Did he go out and buy the stuff? Did he ask someone to get it for him? Did he just happen to have this laying around his house? Maybe he uses it on his cuticles! 16h
FashionableObserver @GingerAntics I had the exact same thought! Also, which one did he get? There are a few products in the 8 Hour line… now

I preordered my hardcopy of this memoir months ago! I‘m sure it‘s waiting for me back home, but I couldn‘t wait a moment longer. Just boarded the plane and am listening to the Audible version. It‘s time Prince Harry had a chance to tell his story, and I‘m looking forward to his velvety voice keeping me company on my way home from paradise. #Spare #InHisOwnWords #TheTruthShallSetYouFree

When someone waved a red flag you were supposed to stop, not wave back and keep on going because the map you‘d been following for ages told you to. Roads changed, bridges crumbled. Old maps needed to be replaced with new ones. Sometimes you had to find a new way to get to your destination.

Driven by the convictions that the Union was sacred and that slavery was wrong. Lincoln was instrumental in saving one and in destroying the other, expanding freedom and preserving an experiment in popular government that nearly came to an end on his watch. In him we can engage not only the possibilities and limitations of the presidency, but the possibilities and limitations of America itself.

I‘m looking forward to reading this and meeting the author at the next Twin Cities Civil War Roundtable meeting! It‘s gonna be a good one. These stories have to be told. Reading them will certainly break our hearts, but we have to learn about and remember this history so that we don‘t repeat it. Lessons from the past can be warnings….

“…in the UK, it‘s hard to get a rifle and next to impossible to secure a handgun. Yet somehow, against all odds, British people feel free. Is it that they don‘t know what they‘re missing? Or is the freedom they feel the freedom of not being shot to death in a classroom or shopping mall or movie theater?”

TrishB Pretty much…. 8mo
MicheleinPhilly 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 8mo
Bookwomble Yup, pretty much! Just watched a US TV show in which one character walks up to a house in a town, knocks on the door and the homeowner comes out with a rifle and says they will shoot them for trespassing if they don't get back on the sidewalk. And, I think that can't be legal, that even in the US you can't just shoot somebody for standing on your drive, but then ... 🤷🏻‍♂️❓ 8mo

“…it‘s less about the places we go than the people we meet along the way. …most of all, it‘s about the ones who stay, who become home.”
I LOVED this book. Emily Henry does a great job of crafting characters and stories that take readers on delightful journeys. On the surface, the stories seem fluffy—Hallmark Movie-esque. But they are so much more than that. The characters are complex. The plot and resolutions make you think. I‘m officially a fan!

Rest in Peace, Beverly Cleary. Every year since about 2nd grade I‘ve read my favorite Ramona book on your birthday. I didn‘t even miss a year during my wild college days or my first years as a mom! This is my original copy from 1990. It‘s always been prominently displayed on a shelf wherever I‘ve lived. I cherish it. Tonight I‘ll read it a couple of weeks early in honor of you. Thank you for sharing your gifts. I‘m forever grateful.

FashionableObserver @Reggie when I started reading it on Friday, I was taken back to my childhood—walking to the neighborhood library with my friends, to get my weekly stack of books (a Ramona one almost always in that stack)—and I started to smile. Remembering that simple, happy time erased my sadness. Look at that: even in her passing, Ms. Cleary managed to bring joy! 2y

Aftershocks: A Memoir | Nadia Owusu

“My parents are a representation of what is possible when love wins and freedom rings and the pendulum swings toward justice.”
I wonder if that‘s what we are in our son‘s eyes. 2020 introduced him to deeper thinking about Race. The lesson came much earlier than we anticipated or would have liked, but it was necessary nonetheless. I wonder if he sees our family as a kind of triumph, or as just a regular family. Can it be both? I kind of hope so...
