This made me nostalgic for getting up on Saturday mornings and watching cartoons in my pjs. I‘m not really sure how long I actually did that as I have always liked sleep, but it definitely made me sentimental about the idea. Not every cartoon that aired is included, but it‘s still a fun flashback to some of the cartoons of my childhood. #nonfiction #somethingyouwerentlookingfor

Read in April.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Great job! I‘m pacing myself out too... I want to stretch it out over the year. 8mo
AnansiGirl @Riveted_Reader_Melissa good to know! I‘ve seen other littens with almost filled cards and I was like I need to catch up. 😂 🐢 🐇 8mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @AnansiGirl Yes 😂 I few did coverall already! But I definitely need to space out my non-fiction with some other genres. So take your time, you have over half the year yet! 8mo
Smarkies Good to know that other people are also going as slowly as me! 😂😂 8mo
AnansiGirl @Smarkies we‘re doing ok with reading at our own pace 🙌🏼 😄 8mo

#nonfiction2019 #SomethingYouWerentLookingFor | This was an Audible daily deal last week and I grabbed it without knowing anything about it! Wow! It was great! Goldfarb is a journalist who did a ton of research for this, but it‘s written like a great story, totally engaging! Superb on audio with Will Damron narrating! The book just won 🏅2019 PEN/E.O Wilson prize for literary science writing!

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds really good, and I‘ve never heard of this one before. 10mo
AnneFindsJoy @Riveted_Reader_Melissa - yeah i hadnt either, I‘m so glad I discovered it! Highly recommend it! (edited) 10mo

Up next is my pick for #NonFiction2019 #SomethingYouWerentLookingFor #MountTBR2019 #Bk9 & #Pop19 #PopSugarReadingChallenge #BookYouThinkShouldBeAMovie The story of Sandra Pankhurst, a trans woman in Australia, who overcame abuse as a child & then coming to terms with her sexuality as an adult, becomes a trauma cleaner who deals with other people‘s pain. Comes highly recommended by littens I trust. And I‘m stoked it‘s another #AussieLit book!

Cathythoughts The cover of this book really freaks me out. And I‘m ok with scarey books usually.... 11mo
JacqMac This one is so good! Heartbreaking, but well told. 11mo
JennyM It is soooo good. Sandra is an amazing lady. Enjoy 11mo

Wow. Just wow. Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in intersectional feminism or race in America. One thing, I was vaguely aware of is the black-black, immigrant-black distinction, but this book really drove home to me how many different Americas there are. 4⭐️

Her essay on being pregnant was devastating. May be a TW for some. 💕

Available on #hoopla
