The little boy in this book has mysterious symptoms that doctors can not figure out. I spent about a year at Duke Children‘s doing my clinical hours for Child Life. So I spent a lot of time working with a lot of kids similar there & in early intervention. The mom highlighted the prevalence of racism & misdiagnosis of kids (which I‘ve seen lots of that, unfortunately). It was an interesting story about their experiences of dealing with a lot of

ncsufoxes medical unknowns, lack of answers, frustrations of doctors & the school system not taking 2 well educated parents seriously (I‘m white & my husband & I are well educated & we feel like no one listens to us). So on one level I get her frustrations plus to experience racism on top of that is another level. #bookspin #nonfiction: I‘m Unplanned- because life with a disabled child is unplanned (rewarding but more exhausting than you planned) 2d

“A book, like a person, remains imperfect, incomplete, during its entire creation. At the end of the gestation the person is born, then grows, but I consider a book alive only during the writing. Afterward, at least for me, it dies” 

The book dies when the author writes “The End” in their books, and yet they are reborn in the minds of the readers.

Dystopia: A Natural History by Gregory Claeys explores how long this concept has been around and its future development. Read my review.

An interfering read! I really enjoyed the subject and hope to continue reading about it. As for this book, I know nothing about flowers and plants and their more negative and dangerous aspects, so this was really enlightening. It's a mini-reference book with history and myths and facts #nonfiction

I listened to the audiobook for this one and now I wish I had the physical book. It's a book that really creates a melancholic atmosphere and just, I loved most of the words. I really felt them in my SOUL #nonfiction #words #dictionary

Spooky tales. Perfect for the fall but pretty good right now too 🙂 currently reading the California section. And not to brag or anything but my home state of Alabama has one of the best ghost stories EVER 😬😱 #currentlyreading #nonfiction #supernatural

As an English teacher and someone fascinated by the way language changes over time, I truly enjoyed this entertaining and informative look at punctuation.

LitStephanie My heart loves the idea of a zero tolerance approach to punctuation. 🤣 6d
kspenmoll Her books are great! 6d
Daisey @LitStephanie @kspenmoll It was interesting to compare a few differences between British & American punctuation rules, but overall I found it easy to follow and amusing. (edited) 5d

I don‘t tend to swear much, but I find books about swearing just as fascinating as other aspects of language. This one includes some interesting discussion of gestures in addition to spoken language and quite a bit about how the brain works in relation to profanity.

JazzFeathers Well, this sounds surprisingly fascinating. 4d
Daisey @JazzFeathers Not sure what it says about me, but I‘m getting a collection of similar books on my Goodreads linguistics shelf. 😂 🤷‍♀️ 3d
