#FoodAndLit @Butterfinger @Texreader
This is an article on sugarcane production in Brazil. It is the world leader in producing this vital staple. The book I'm reading takes place partly on a sugarcane plantation in the early 1900's.

Butterfinger That was interesting. I'm glad it pointed out that the sugarcane development will destroy the rainforest environment. Thank you for sharing. 2y
Butterfinger Diane, I don't know why I tagged you on your own post. It is one of those, "Look at this momma!!!! Her dress turns colors! moments. 2y

TheBookHippie We did this for Bookclub when we were BOTMBUDDYREAD all the questions and research I did is still there but the search for it 😝😩 enjoy it‘s quite good. #botmbuddyread (edited) 2y
Texreader Looks good! Stacked! Thanks for posting the article! (edited) 2y
EadieB I read this too with the BOTM Buddy Read. Enjoyed it very much! Hope you do too! 2y
Crazeedi @EadieB I really am, the audio is very good 2y
EadieB @Crazeedi I think I did audio + book! Good story! I own her other book but haven't read it yet (edited) 2y
Crazeedi @EadieB I ordered the seamstress too, have it in my stack! Lol 2y
EadieB @Crazeedi I could have read it and sent it to you. 2y
Crazeedi @EadieB I guess I should have known you might have! Lol. You've been generous already! 2y
EadieB @Crazeedi You should check with me because I have to read and get rid of my books after I read them as I have too many books. 2y
Crazeedi @EadieB well I will definitely remember (I hope)!! 2y
LitStephanie Clearing rainforests to grow sugarcane to make fuel doesn't seem to be a win for the climate or biodiversity. Interesting that sugar cane is such a big part of Brazil's economy, though! 2y

8little_paws I saw BOTM posted a response to what happened. I hope they apologize to those specific posters and they commit to the long term changes they announced. 2y

Reviewsbylola Holy shit! I had no idea. That‘s horrific. The company has really changed in the past few years, and not for the better, so I can‘t say I‘m too surprised. 2y
8little_paws @reviewsbylola @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I am cautiously optimistic they'll stick to their word. I do think they're fairly diverse in their selections--I have a lot of books by nonwhite people as well as some LGBTQ books from them--they just aren't specifically promoting Black voices as strongly as they could.

Oh my god the anxiety. I feel like this EVERY time I find a rhythm to not be so anxious and then it comes surging back. It always seems to be in an instant like this, too. I just want to hug Nina.

“It was pretty much downhill from there.”
Oh my god, it‘s a miracle they both weren‘t hammered by the end of that event. Wow. Just wow. Is this a real book? I‘d almost read it, just for the laugh now.

@TheBookHippie and @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

I‘m reading this book at the moment and think it would be a great #BOTMBuddyRead. Some great discussion points with it.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Did you see that we changed our name? #SundayBuddyRead check out Christine‘s page! 2y
Andrew65 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks No thanks I hadn‘t. Due to health issues and work work work work not had much time for Litsy recently and look at people‘s posts. Thanks for letting me know. 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Andrew65 I hope you are ok! I will tag you in the announcement! Get to feeling better! 2y
Andrew65 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thanks, cannot believe what they did! 😡 Generally okay apart from the pain that come and goes. Stress levels at moment aren‘t helping, may hopefully feel better when get MRI results. 2y
