Wow what a heartbreaking and beautiful story about the harm done to a young trans teenager and how this one decision changed two young people's lives. I felt really bad for both students. Really well done story. I learned a lot about juvenile youth in the corrections system. This was a very informative story that I didn't know about. Well done.. #NFNov #NFN21 #NFN

“We all have different ways to decompress & our tanks start to empty at different rates. What is the point of self-care if you‘re stressing about how & how frequently it‘s practiced?” (Episode 10)

This is a great 30-day challenge #podcast for anyone wanting to start walking/running but unsure how/when/where to start.

And I recommend it for all my #BFC21 participants.

TheDaysGoBy Sounds like something I could get into! I‘m assisted to podcasts and would definitely help with #BFC 3mo

Well, I kinda stunk at #NFN2020. Only 3 nonfiction books this month. I still have about 400 pages to go in the Frank Lloyd Wright book I started so I don‘t think I‘ll finish it today. Oh well, 3 is more nonfiction than I usually read in a month. #NovemberStats #NFN20

Chab256 I love #NFNov but this year I read zero nonfiction. 🤦‍♀️ 14mo

Good assumption challenging perspective on some of the worst corporate practices out there. I summarized each lie in previously posted quotes but that doesn‘t do the book justice so I highly recommend reading this one. Well researched and excellent story telling and writing. #nfnov

Highly recommended for sales people or anyone who has to negotiate for a living. Much of the books reads more like a memoir than a self help book, following the author‘s experience through some very high stakes hostage negotiations. The lessons he learned though are relevant for many situations and he does a great job tying his experience to more approachable day to day experiences. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. #nfnov #nonfiction

#nfnov #til that getting a “yes” too fast puts the other person on guard. Better to start with a “no” which makes them feel as if they are in control and gets to the objection faster. Also, “you‘re right” only confirms your opinion but “that‘s right” indicates that you understand their position and puts them at ease. In sales and negotiations, aim for no and that‘s right more than yes and you‘re right.

Lie #5 - people need feedback. “We aren‘t looking for feedback. We‘re looking for an audience.... attention” #til #nfnov. “The truth,then, is that people need attention - and when you give it to us in a safe and nonjudgmental environment, we will come and stay and play and work.”

Since we are preparing for NF November, I thought I‘d share something a friend posted. The movie is coming out soon, but many Appalachian writers would rather people read books that provide a more accurate picture of Appalachia. I‘ve only read a few of these, so I‘m going to put more on my TBR. #nfnov

Butterfinger I've been meaning to read Rocket Boys forever. Loved the movie October Sky. 1y
Scochrane26 @Butterfinger Rocket Boys is a great book. Love the movie, too. There‘s 2 more books that go along with RB about his town. 1y

1. Yes, I don‘t always complete them, but I try. I really enjoyed #nfNov, GAR, & the sci-fi/fantasy challenges.

2. Right now, the GR annual reading challenge (I participate in that one every year) & the Modern Mrs. Darcy 2020 reading challenge. I‘m sure I‘ll sign-up for a few more too.

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! Happy Tuesday! 2y
marleed I loved NFNov. I audited it because points stress me out but I learned NF is one of my favorite genres. 2y
wanderinglynn @marleed 🤔 I never heard if there was a nfNov “winner”. 2y

marleed Oh I don‘t know anything about the outcome of the points, but I sure loved reading NF and seeing Litsy posts on their reading! 2y
Addison_Reads @wanderinglynn They picked the top three people with points for NFNov and sent gift cards. I was one winner, but I can't remember the other two right now. I didn't even know there was a prize; I just love reading NF. 2y
jennbee Definitely going to do GR. I couldn‘t really understand the instructions for how to post about my progress in their app, but I‘m going to at least do it for fun. And I always post about whatever I‘m reading on Facebook! So glad I found this app too! 2y
wanderinglynn @marleed it certainly helped me thin my NF TBR pile! 👍🏻 2y
wanderinglynn @Addison_Reads congrats! 🙌🏻 2y
wanderinglynn @jennbee 👍🏻 on Goodreads, you just have to mark the book as read and put the date you finished it. Then GR automatically tracks your progress that way. 2y
jennbee @wanderinglynn thank you for that explanation! The way that I saw it phrased in the post on GR made it sound more complicated. 2y
wanderinglynn @jennbee 😀 my pleasure 2y
jillrhudy I'm creating one right now for the library. It's my project! 2y
wanderinglynn @jillrhudy fun! 🙌🏻 2y

So now that I am finished and have taken a significant break from Litsy and #NFNov which was fun I'd like to give a shout out to any one who facilitates an event, a book swap, a reading challenge, a whatever! To keep our community engaged and active. Taking on the role of leading #NFNov was hard work, managing people and points and trying to keep up with my own responsibilities was just difficult for me. So here's to all of you awesome leaders!

LauraJ Thank you for doing it! I loved nonfiction November 🖤 2y
NeedsMoreBooks Thank you for hosting #NFNov, I enjoyed it 😊 2y

ljuliel I found in the past that leading was a lot more work than I thought it‘d be. For me, it‘s easier to be a follower than a leader. I do hope there are more book events coming , to keep that activity going. There are lots of new readalongs coming for 2020. 2y
Addison_Reads Thank you for taking the time to do NFNov. 🙌 2y
marleed Thank you for NFNov. I participated in an ‘auditing‘ fashion because I stress myself out with points. But I learned so much and discovered I enjoyed NF every bit as much if not more than fiction. And my NF has carried into Dec! I enjoyed the NFNov posts too! 2y
Scochrane26 I didn‘t participate this year, but thanks to everyone‘s posts, my NF tbr has grown a lot. 2y
rsteve388 So this is all great and thanks your appreciation m but I just wanted to acknowledged the other Litsy leaders who lead other events cause I now know how hard it is. 2y
