The second book of comedian/ actress Laura Clery in which she discusses the turn her life has taken now that she is a mother. From accidental activism concerning public breastfeeding, her continued life of sobriety and more stories of when she was an addict, to her recent diagnosis of ADHD as well as the diagnosis of both her husband's and son's autism, nothing is off limits.

A guide to only giving a f*ck about the things that truly matter to you, and ignoring those that don't, thus living a better life.

I was aware of the existence of this book, but knew nothing of the subject matter. It is a story of WWII told through the eyes of a naive 9 year old German boy. I knew immediately where his family relocated and what his father did. The ending broke my heart. I saw it coming as soon but hoped it wouldn't end the way it did. Very good book.

Very information about protecting and preserving ancient manuscripts in Mali during the occupation by Al-Queda. It gives a lot if background about Al-Queda forces in Northern Africa as well.

Once again, we are taken look into the life of a Starfield loving, book loving girl. When Rosie accidentally ruins a book, she ends up paying it off by organizing the massive library. Supposed to be helping her is Vance, who just happens to play the villain in the Starfield movies. He's also the mystery guy from a convention a few months back. Will they get along and find love?? This is a Beauty and the Beast retelling and I enjoyed it.

I read 2 books by Maya Angelou for #authoramonth. Celebrations was poems that were a part of celebrations such as a presidential inauguration. This was actually my first time reading Caged Bird. I had no idea it was autobiographical, and thinking of what she endured in her young life breaks my heart. It makes her journey to success so much more impressive. I'm so glad I finally read it. @Soubhiville

Featuring poems on many topics. I think my favorite one was called Hands of Trees. I listened to this on audio and discovered that for me, I should read poetry, not listen to it. I think I lost some of it when reading.

I have never seen any of the shows she has done with regard to Scientology, so I went into this knowing very little about it. Wow is it problematic. It does make me want to know more in the watching a train wreck sort of way. I'm glad she was able to leave, but sad for the friends she lost because of it's principles.

I really enjoyed this memoir by Arngrim who played Nellie Olsen on Little House. Although parts of it were uncomfortable, TW: child abuse/rape, she is a strong person. I enjoyed listening to her stories of times on Little House and with various cast members. I admire her work with activism such as AIDS, especially since it was a time of misinformation, and how she managed to endure pure hatred just because she was Nellie.

I gave up last year. The past few years I have been out of sorts to say the least. The pandemic didn't help when it reared it's ugly head. This year I'm determined to be optimistic, to better accept the #BFC philosophy that life happens.
Book goal: 5 books
Fitness goal: This month I'm working on putting things to rights in my aparetment. Doing so will take a lot of stress and the feeling of being overwhelmed away.

@carlthecattt , I just wanted to let you know that I goofed when writing dates down for the #litsylovewinterswap. I thought the send date was the 15th which was very wrong. It was supposed to be delivered today, but tracking just has it moving to the next facility on track for delivery. We aren't too far from each other. Anyways, I'm so sorry that you are getting it late. My fingers are crossed that it shows up tomorrow. Again I'm so sorry.

The Meg Langslow series is my favorite cozy mystery series and this latest one is another pick. A famous painter has taken up residence in Meg's library while he paints birds for a book that Meg's grandfather is writing. He is a completely unlikable guy who has several enemies, so of course he is the victim. I love the antics of Meg's large, crazy family and the humor. #wintergames2021 #mistletoemaniacs @Clwojick #WGwordsearch

I really enjoyed this book. Taking place in Edinburgh, we have Carmen, who is floundering and insecure when compared to her perfect, successful sister Sofia,helping try to turn a profit at a struggling bookstore.We get to explore the rivalry between them as Carmen stays with Sofia. Throw in Mr. McCredie, Sofia's children, a holistic nanny, and a couple of love interests for Carmen and we have a nice little holiday story.

I came across this in Libby while scrolling nonfiction audios. I knew nothing of her other than she is married to Nick Jonas. She was a Miss India and Miss World. An actress. An ambassador for Unicef. A film director with her own company. Through her actions she tries to change things such as India's view on women and beauty. I learned many interesting things about Indian culture, like the many traditional things associated with weddings. ⬇️

Dream More was a short book in which Dolly expounds on her thoughts of the pillars of her Imagination Library foundation.
The Time of My Life is a memoir.

Day 4: #nfn21 Today's podcast was about primatology, the study of primates. There was quite a bit on this subject that I did know given my field, but plenty that I didn't. #TIL that chimps will fight it all out and then be friends a few hours later. They will often use a sort of trust exercise like putting their hand into the others mouth, sort of saying 'are we good now?' Then they will start grooming each other.
