If there wasn‘t so much malice… I‘d say the Sacklers remind me of the cast on Arrested Development. #book18of2022

This was such a great read/listen! Her tips took into account that you don‘t have to spend money for it to be self care, that it isn‘t an excuse for over indulging, and can be very small and simple and personal to you. I appreciated her comments on privilege too. Highly recommend! #book16of2022

Very sweet story. Excellent on audiobook! It‘s overly sentimental but you need that sometimes. #book14of2022

Some had ethics, most were committed to quality, some wanted to make things affordable, some wanted an air of luxury… some were just exploitative. This book was an interesting look into the beauty industry. #book13of2022

@LitStephanie @ozma.of.oz thanks for the tag/post!! #sundayfunday
1- Beauty & cosmetics and the industry
2- The industry is fascinating but manipulative and still somehow the products and the transformation are fun
3- Currently reading “Branded Beauty: How Marketing Changed the Way We Look”

ozma.of.oz Oh that sounds super interesting! Thank you for sharing! 1w

I had chills when she described her experience on 9/11. She perfectly captured the hopeful feeling after the 2008 election and the terrified feeling after the 2016 election. #book4of2022

I thought this book might be out of date because it was written in the 90s… unfortunately it is still relevant. #poverty #racism #policebrutality #forgottenyouth #book3of2022

~15 years later… this satire reads as Tucker Carlson‘s current talking points 😩 #book2of2022

This #firstreadof2022 couldn‘t have been more timely for this “season” in my life and for the literal timing of winter in New England.

brittanybooks @Cortg thank you! I might have to reach out to Litsy folks for help… like is anything free on kindle??? 😆 2w
Cortg @brittanybooks I have a kindle but tend to gravitate towards physical copies of books. If I do read a book on my kindle, I check an ebook (electronic book) out from the library. That‘s always free! There are also free books if you have Amazon Prime, I believe. 2w

brittanybooks @Cortg @dragon thanks & happy new year!!!! I can always count on the Libby app and Overdrive too- they‘re awesome. 2w
tokorowilliamwallace @Cortg, @brittanybooks yes I have 72 pages (of 6 books each) of mostly free Kindle offers (some from Gutenberg Project). Freebooksy helps to curate these, as well as some others.

But I haven't been able to stay focused on reading digitally yet. I'm a physical copy person, but might as well hoard digitally just in case my behavioral habits come through for me, right?

Cortg I have a lot of books on my kindle I haven‘t read yet and they‘ve been there for close to 10 years. I may get to them eventually. 😂 If I read a book on my kindle it‘s usually for book club and borrowed through Overdrive. 2w
