tpixie @TheBookHippie lol 😂 yes 2w
julieclair @TheBookHippie Yes! And even if they manage to hold their tongues, their facial expression and body language makes their opinions clear, lol. 😂 But honestly, that scene was incredible. The impertinence and condescension. Ugh. 2w
TheBookHippie @julieclair just in time for Mother‘s Day … this is my in-laws… 2w
julieclair @TheBookHippie Start practicing your zen breathing exercises now... 😂🧘‍♀️ 2w
TheBookHippie @julieclair LOL 🧘🏻‍♀️ I stay home and avoid the world on Mother‘s Day. Tradition I started when I turned 45. I‘m allowed a peaceful beautiful day. I‘ve done my time 🤣 2w
julieclair @TheBookHippie What a lovely idea! Mother's Day the way YOU want it! And I bet books will be involved... 😃📚 2w
TheBookHippie @julieclair I‘m hiding in the library with Chinese food and an air mattress 🤣🤣🤣 2w
Bookwormjillk @TheBookHippie sounds like a perfect Mother‘s Day to me! 2w
Chili @TheBookHippie 🤜🏻 I‘m hiding in my room with a stack of books. The perfect Mother‘s Day. 2w
julieclair @TheBookHippie Yum… Chinese food… this is getting better and better! 🥡👍😆 2w
mollyrotondo My edition‘s notes on this chapter talk about this book being an early example of the temperance novel. I love that this book explains the importance of understanding a family history of addiction and how it needs to be tempered in future generations in order to stop the cycle but is also very honest about how much to control this when raising a child since outright denial can lead to the same outcome of overindulgence. Really love her writing. 2w

This short book is a difficult read, if you take it seriously and really get introspective and honest with yourself. She frequently references how each of us, and the church as an institution, needs to die in order to become something better, like a seed must crack open in order to produce fruit. The basis of the American church, as an institution of colonialism and oppression, is hard to take for those who love it. But we need this book.

My parish did a book study on this last month, but I was unable to participate. So I‘m going it alone now.

Nonfiction November Week 3 is "Be the Expert" - If you find yourself pulling further left politically, or just want to learn more about leftism, I think you'll enjoy the titles shown here (and others mentioned in today's post). They all have clear, accessible writing styles and a hopeful tone. ❤?❤ https://lovelybookshelf.com/2020/11/books-for-leftists/

#BloomingBibliophiles Day 28: Mariama is from a little village called Fulakunda in Gambia (which I figured out by reading the Illustrator‘s Dedication). She & her family have moved to a far away country “after a long journey by car, train, boat and plane.” Things were very strange for Mariama when she attended school where she does not speak & understand the language. A lot of #Changes in Mariama‘s life. My review here: https://wp.me/pDlzr-lLv

Book friends! As you may know, Amazon warehouse workers in Minnesota are on strike to protest their abysmal work conditions. Don‘t cross the virtual picket line by shopping Prime Day! Here‘s a great place to buy books instead, or shop at your local independent book dealer. #shoplocal #solidarity

Megabooks Emily said it was worse working at Amazon than a call center or McDonald‘s! This is a great book!! 3y
Jilly6183 @Megabooks It's on my TBR, definitely looking forward to reading this one 3y
Jilly6183 @Megabooks I picked up a copy the other day. I'm only about 70 pages in so far but it is exceeding my expectations. Thanks for putting it at the forefront of my mind! 3y
Megabooks @Jilly6183 So glad you are enjoying it. It was so eye-opening! 3y

Oh hey, new best friend.

CocoReads It‘s so hard—my oldest hasn‘t passed a section yet. She missed audit by 10 points and she works in audit. The others have been more dismal. 3y
WhatWouldJaneDo Good luck! Glad I'm not the only one posting giant textbooks on Litsy #solidarity 3y
8little_paws Good luck!! If you need extra help or want a different guide I can say gleim worked for me. A long ass time ago but it worked! 3y

Ashley_Nicoletto @CocoReads It is so hard. This is the one I‘m most nervous about so I‘m starting with it. It just has so much content. But people pass it everyday so I have to just keep my 🤞🏼🤞🏼 that I can somehow pull it off. I hope your oldest passes soon. 3y
Ashley_Nicoletto @WhatWouldJaneDo Thanks! 🤜🏼🤛🏼 3y
Ashley_Nicoletto @8little_paws I‘ve heard from someone else that they passed with that one as well. This baby cost me $2,014 so it better be amazing. 3y
8little_paws If you are specializing in nonprofit most of this is utterly worthless too which makes it even worse. 3y
CocoReads @Ashley_Nicoletto thanks. She‘s got one one more section to take before she exhausts the funds from work and then she‘ll have to start paying for them. 😬 good luck to you! 3y
8little_paws @CocoReads I had to pay myself for the exam (my job reimbursed for only in person class after you passed all 4 sections and I didn't have the money to front the cost of that) Gleim got me to pass and it was the lowest cost option I could find. Passed all 4 on first try with them. 3y
Ashley_Nicoletto @8little_paws Life has a funny way of shaking things up so I imagine I will eventually work back in private corporate accounting. I also have to pay first and could be reimbursed. 3y
MicheleinPhilly $2,000???? That is OBNOXIOUS. 3y
Ashley_Nicoletto @MicheleinPhilly Girl. I had a $900 off coupon so I got a deal. 🤣 3y
8little_paws Well if you have any interest in moving to chicago, my last day at my current nonprofit job is in about 2 wks. It's director of finance for about $10M op budget and $4M assets. Having worked this long in nonprofit (10+ years) i'm considered an expert in the niche so there's no way i'm leaving now! 3y
CocoReads Her job payed for the study books and depending on which option you choose you may have enough left for more than one go round. She‘s using Becker which was the more expensive option so she had enough left to pay for each section once. After this next one, she has to start paying herself 3y
