What could have been a dry, academic treatise, turned out to be a warm, humorous, informative, educational almost novel. It is nonfiction, but is very story like in places. I learned so much about beavers and their very real extremely positive impact on our watershed and the environment. It gives one hope. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It‘s #blackhistorymonth and this was one of my #roll100 books. No brainer to finally get to this Pulitzer Prize winner.

jlhammar This book is so good! Infuriating, but excellent. 21h

We think of Hawaii as part of the US and a great vacation spot, but the history of becoming so is quite sinister. The deeply researched Nation Within reveals that US control happening initially in a coup overthrowing Queen Lili‘uokalani followed by an annexation the Native Hawaiian people were vehemently against. Terrific, sobering read, and the audio is read by a Native Hawaiian if you want to hear the Hawaiian pronunciations.

Hooked_on_books @shawnmooney I‘m not sure if this one was on the list I sent you before or even matches what you‘re looking for, but it‘s excellent. 1d
Soubhiville Great recommendation, I‘ll definitely see if my library has this. I feel like To Paradise touched on this a bit? If I‘m remembering correctly, but it was in a fictional and maybe topical way. I‘d love to learn more. 1d
Hooked_on_books @Soubhiville I think it did touch a bit on the anger still felt by Native Hawaiians (which I can tell you for sure exists). These 2 would be a great fic/NF pairing for a book club. 1d

January was not a good month for me so I didn't get to do much for #LitsyCrafters
I created a page in my journal to write and doodle some ideas. The only thing I made was this Barbie cassette sticker. My sister and I used to jam to this cassette when we were little 😂 I found the image and turned it into a sticker. 💖
Hopefully February will be better for my crafting!

KateReadsYA Oh Lisa frank was my jam! When it was time to shop for school supplies my backpack was stocked with her supplies. 2d

I like choosing weird monthly themes when I can, and while February is the month of love (and I‘ll throw in some 80‘s Sandra Brown books, as also pictured), I‘m focusing on my collection of Black Donnelly books. The anniversary is tomorrow.

I might throw in a re-read of Attack on Titan.

I am starting this delightful volume today. Not only does it look gorgeous, but it also has pleasing dimensions, and it feels satisfying to hold.

IndoorDame I think sometimes we get caught up with convince and forget how incredibly important that tactile pleasure is! 2d
