Saving our #SheSaid schedule so I can remember where I‘m supposed to stop! I‘ve had this one on my TBR forever.
This was a entertaining, interesting, no-holds-barred collection of feminist essays about how language relates to gender and sexual identity. Chapters tackle issues like swearing, how the ways we speak impact the impression we make and how much respect we get, degrading language, how we talk about our genitals, and much more.

Updated Schedule for #SheSaid, some major & minor changes. I kept our January pick since so many are looking forward to more about Ida B Wells since crossing paths with her in a few other places. But I spaced out our reads a bit for the beginning of the year to hopefully make more space in your schedule for everyone who wants to participate in the #1619Project with @4thhouseontheleft
Litsy has my December #tbr branching out to many books I would otherwise never know to connect with fellow readers here. I think it‘s perfect for this time of year. 😊
Happy to be reading along with #sundaybuddyread / @TheBookHippie and #shesaid / @Riveted_Reader_Melissa as well as reading after #NewYearWhoDis buddies @erinreads and @monalyisha. Also, my #wintergames team #mistletoemaniacs 🎄
I know many of you struggled with this book, but I‘ve seen a few reviews so I know some of you have persevered. I myself have fallen behind… sorry, that I‘m the one dropping the ball here. I am determined however to finish it yet this week! I am learning a lot, but I do feel like I need to force myself to pick it up at times. So please discuss what you learned, loved, struggled with…it will all motivate me to catch up. Again, sorry I fell behind.
Our next selection is on sale in the US on Amazon (thanks for the tip @BarbaraTheBibliophage ). I always try my library first, but if you can‘t get it there 2.99 on kindle or free if you have prime. #SheSaid
Lots of updates today #SheSaid, but first the most important one….the schedule for our next book. So pick up your copy or put in your library holds we are heading into Troublesome Creek this holiday season.
It‘s an important book, but it felt kind of jumpy. Within chapters Jones jumped around in history, back and forth, which was hard to follow. And the last chapters felt like a headlong hurtle from post-WWII to the 2020 election, which was also hard to follow. It needs a little grammar editing. Overall it was fine but I find myself a bit disappointed. #SheSaid discussion should be interesting this week! @Riveted_Reader_Melissa
