Wisdom from Carly and Stella.

RadicalReader Thanks so much for joining Litsy hope you love it here as much as I do. I have never seen such a mammoth TBR pile but definitely gives me a lot of exciting reads to look forward to picking up from the library 8mo
SharonAlger @RadicalReader are you saying my TBR pile is mammoth, or yours? Either way, it‘s gotta be a good thing 😊 8mo

RadicalReader @SharonAlger my TBR Pile has become mammoth ever since I joined Litsy and discovered so many more delightful books I didn‘t even know existed but never been more insistent on reading 8mo
SharonAlger @RadicalReader I see what you mean! Same here. I love it, too ♥️♥️♥️ 8mo

Dinner/bookstore date with my FP big sibling tonight. You know you‘ve got the right person when they pull this off the shelf as something they‘d read for fun, and it‘s the textbook for a class you‘re currently taking and loving. I wasn‘t going to drop $70 on the text when the prof is providing PDFs, but I‘ll pay $7.50 for the ease of paper vs screen for the last month of class. (And of course gift it to my friend after finals, I‘m not a monster)

Emilymdxn This looks like such an awesome textbook! What class is this for? 12mo
Chrissyreadit That does look like an awesome book! What are you studying to do? 12mo
kgriffith @Emilymdxn @Chrissyreadit it‘s for Self-Awareness in Education. I‘m so glad I‘m taking it, it‘s basically a 15 week long therapy appointment asking us to interrogate our biases and consider how we bring our whole selves to the environments in which we lead and educate. 12mo

Was getting settled in for my reading homework and had to giggle when I saw my TinyCat tattoo and TinyCat coaster in such close proximity. 🤓

I‘ve only read the essays in the Race section so far (during an all day meeting 😑) and it was quite good. 👍🏾 Explores a number of perspectives on various “isms.”

I've got two recommendations for books about disabilities. NO PITY looks at the history of the disability movement. My only criticism is that it's written by an able-bodied author(a strong ally), and it shows throughout the book, but it's a good place to start if you don't know much.
WHERE WOMEN ARE KINGS deals with behavioral issues of an at-risk kid, also not perfect, but very poignant. #disabilities #photoadaynov16

I've been struggling with choices for #politicalfiction for #photoadaynov16 all day and dismissed a dozen. I've also been thinking too hard all day, and some of that thinking is about the freedom to read-- to learn to read, to write a book on anything, to have libraries to check out books on any subject. Widespread literacy is relatively new. So, reading some fun fluff or something awesome for @LitsyFeministBookClub ... its all good.

BookishFeminist So true! That was my philosophy earlier with my post. Personal = political. 3y
Hooked_on_books Awesome post. Thank you for it. 😊 3y

I don't usually read books about special needs children. I've found most of them about as useful as I did most books about pregnancy and parenting in general. But the cover art caught my attention. It slightly resembles an artists whose designs I like (Cristy Road) and the blurb sounded worth checking out. We shall see. My copy came in the mail today.
