I was able to hear Patty Wetterling speak at the Minnesota Treatment and Sexual Abuse Conference this week. She is incredible and the entire reason a sex offender registry exists (though it‘s not what she envisioned☺️), which is where I am finishing my career in corrections this year. She is an inspiration, she has survived a parent‘s worst nightmare and has fought for protection for our kids. What an honor to hear her again. Her book🩷

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle | David Wroblewski
post image

Two books, going backwards. I just finished the prequel to The Book of Edgar Sawtelle, which I first read in 2008. After waiting 16 years for this, it was everything I needed, excessive at times. I need to ponder Familiaris a bit before I can really review it - meanwhile I want to take another run at the original.

Different Seasons | Stephen King
post image

#TLT Thanks for the tag @dabbe
All three of my favorite novellas are in one book - Different Seasons has Rita Hayworth (The Shawshank Redemption), The Body (Stand by Me) and The Apt Pupil in it. I am generally not a fan of short stories but this book was a 1982 standout. I wore it out and bought a used copy last summer to read them all again. Stephen King is synonymous with childhood and shaped the 6th grade reader in me.

Bklover Wow- we did make similar pics. I forgot about Apt Pupil! I agree- I love going g back and reading the novellas and short stories. LOVED Different Seasons! 1mo
Reggie I read these 3 for the first time this past winter and totally agree. Standouts. 1mo

slategreyskies When I was in Botswana years ago, a group of my friends and I were singing songs from musicals to pass the time on a bus journey.

I‘d always assumed it was made up for the movie, but it‘s genuine. Cool, huh? 😎 2mo

peaKnit @julesG I‘m doing a three week detox program with my long time yoga practitioner - she moved so it‘s on zoom and I do yoga at home. Anyways, I think the best tip is to really give yourself a lot of self care while you‘re detoxing, take the baths, get the rest, somehow that feels like a reward. As I‘m almost wrapping up I currently have less cravings. I‘ve slipped a teeny bit here and there so also important - give yourself grace🩷 2mo
peaKnit @julesG and yes, I‘m coasting into lent with plans to maintain some of the things I‘ve adopted, I hope to stay off the diet soda and be more plant based. I also hope to be mindful that I like how I feel in control right now, 40 more days wouldn‘t hurt ;) it‘s weird, part of feeling more in control, I feel nicer and more patient.🤷🏼‍♀️ 2mo
julesG Thank you! I've given this a lot of thought, looked at my current habits and came to the conclusion that I'm not using a lot of sugar already. Hence I'm not going cold turkey, but cut chocolate and desserts this week. Next week I'll look at what processed food I can cut - won't be much, I'm already making most from scratch. Maybe I should cut carbs in total, but I'm not ready to try that. 2mo

I finished a second book recommended by my #AuldLangSpine partner @Birdsong28 ❤️ - a fun romp through the public relations world of fashion in London. A solid, eccentric group of workmates working in a pretty despicable world of celebrity. The leading lady Frankie finds herself as she realizes she pretty good at handling the crap she is handed. If there is sequel, she will get her feet fully under her and create some clever boundaries.

Birdsong28 Glad you enjoyed it. It was a fun read. 3mo

Just finished an excellent audio of Dennis Lehane‘s Small Mercies, he writes a gritty Boston. The story is told over the background of busing in an effort to end segregation of schools in Boston in the 70‘s. I enjoys the book so much and it got me thinking about the back story as well. I found this documentary on YouTube, well done and interesting. It‘s a good day for me when a fiction book brings historical awareness. Doc link in comments.

Finished my first pick from @Birdsong28 #auldlangspine list. After reading this I am very curious to learn more about mid-1800 London. The workhouses and rented beds intrigue me. Id like to know how the city transformed. I may have liked more details about the cases, perhaps because I‘m in Corrections. The victims were quickly written off as vagrants and prostitutes, the book uncovered so much more. They shared a thread of addiction and loss.

peaKnit @birdsong28 Thank you for this recommendation, I also really enjoyed the depth of research on the victims. Sometimes details veered off course for me, but the information developed 150 years later is quite impressive. 4mo
Birdsong28 @peaKnit Glad you enjoyed this. I found that myself that it went off in tangents at times that sometimes slowed the narrative down. It's such a valuable book not just in the Jack the ripper history but in the history of women and our place in the world. 📚📖 4mo
peaKnit @birdsong28 yes, you said that do much better than I did. I was so taken in by the scene and I can imagine losing myself in a rabbit hole of research into how did London get from there to here? The investigations at that time were so primitive and the victims were largely discounted by society. It was well done - it was an arduous task digging back so far with so few records. 4mo
