I didn't know this book was a memoir when I started it. I'm really enjoying the author's account of returning to India.

Just finished this book! I'd give it 4/5 stars. It was fun to learn about the NYC art scene, but I think it dragged a bit in the middle as the author was trying to be subversive about the protag's criminal behavior. I thought a major plot point had been dropped until I got to like the last 50 or so pages. 😂 Would still totally recommend this one!

Y'all ever wish you could reach into a book and smack some sense into a character? 😅 Chapter 24 of Sankofa had me wondering if the protag learned absolutely a n y t h i n g.

*Hypothetical* question...if I started an Etsy shop where you gave me a little bit of info and I sent you a hand-selected "blind date" book with fun goodies like stickers and bookmarks, is that something you'd be interested in?

Hypothetically, of course. I'm totally not getting some books ready to ship as I type this so I can start a side hustle to supplement my meager teaching salary or anything like that. ?

Texreader This could be my study! Scrapbooking paper, bookshelves, Baby Yoda…. Check! Except yours is way neater! As for your question, possibly. 3mo
thegreensofa I would (in Australia), and maybe gently-used secondhand books. 🙂 3mo
Rachel.Rencher @thegreensofa They will be new or gently-used! I'll have to figure out international shipping (not sure if it costs an arm and a leg), but thank you for your interest! 🥰 3mo

Today has been icky for a lot of reasons. My heart is with everyone who is also feeling scared and unsettled by the Supreme court's recent decisions.

I'm going to attempt to distract myself with a new book and the sound of rain outside my window.

In lighter news, I was finally given a volunteer spot at the library. I was on the waitlist for almost a year, and I start next month. 💕📚

Hey all! I've been busy setting up my new classroom, and I'm wondering if any teachers on here know a good place to buy fun books for cheap? The books I inherited from the last teacher are mostly old mystery novels that nobody wants to read, but my budget doesn't allow me to replace all of them at once.

Or, do you know of any grants out there for this kind of thing? I teach 9th & 10th grade ELA. Thank you! 😍📚

mandarchy Do you game a Half Price bookstore where you live? Ours will have dollar days or quarter sales. There is also a reading foundation that collects and distributes books, but it's local to me. 4mo
ozma.of.oz See if you‘ve got a book exchange store locally! Exchange unread books for in store credit! 4mo
ozma.of.oz Also, hit up those library discard/overflow book sales! When they get more copies of a book donated than they circulate, a lot of libraries will sell pretty good condition books. 4mo

CoffeeNBooks I get a lot of my classroom library books at Goodwill, or online at Thriftbooks and Discover Books- I can usually get books for about $4 each on those websites, if there's something in particular I'm looking for. 4mo
MicheleinPhilly Have you considered setting up a campaign through DonorsChoose.com? 4mo
Rachel.Rencher @MicheleinPhilly I haven't! I'll try that. Thank you. 🙂 4mo
Rachel.Rencher @mandarchy I didn't know that! I'll look into it. Thank you. 🙂 4mo
wisherwishinguponastar You can also request donations for a general type of book through Half Price Books, if you are near one like @mandarchy is. You wouldn‘t have to pay for the books, but it might take some time for them to put it together. You can send a request through their website, but I would call your local store first just in case their rules are different near you! (edited) 4mo

I'm not big on self-help books, but OMG this book is a masterpiece.
