Applications close tomorrow night for JET and I've made 3 appointments at the writing center to look over my statement of purpose. I'm crossing my fingers I'll get an email about an interview!! In the meantime, I gotta up my Japanese language and culture knowledge and figure out how not to bomb that #interview. I have a few #selfhelp titles I borrowed that I'm hoping will help with this! #jobhunting

Crimson613 if anyone is curious, i have a month (probably two depending on the interview date) to make myself an even more desirable candidate (assuming i'm a good candidate right now LOL) 3d

Regarding Susan Sontag:Portrait of a Feminist Icon, a documentary on Kanopy.
I did not know that Susan Sontag had cancer 3 times. She eventually died because a transplant was a failure, and there was nothing she could do. But I did not know she had cancer, and beat the odds twice before.

Ted Bundy: Conversations with a Killer | Stephen G Michaud, Hugh Aynsworth

In interview form, this book gives insight on just exactly what Ted Bundy's mind was like. Some people might not like the way it was written, as it is in 3rd person, but the book clearly explains why they took that approach. Someone being so intrigued with true crime, I was interested the whole time. It was interesting to hear his thought process and what really goes through serial killers minds

This is the only thing I could think of. The subtitle is "A Festival of Poets".

Littens! I have been out of pocket due to midterms followed by a whirlwind 48 hour trip to NYC with my older daughter. My first time to NYC, so of course I had to visit The Strand! Purchases = the script for Betrayal, the play we saw on our trip, for Katie and a Strand tote for me.

Amiable Love the Strand! How fun for you! 1mo
PirateJenny Oh! You saw Hiddleston! 😍 1mo
mom2bugnbee @PirateJenny I'm about to post about that, even though it's not technically books. 😉 That was the reason we went - he is my older daughter's fave actor, she's a senior, you only live once. 😍 He, his co-stars, & the play was stunning. I'll never forget it! 1mo
PirateJenny @mom2bugnbee A friend and I are considering going (our office is ten blocks from the theater). We should get off our behinds and get tickets! I'm so gla the two of you went! 1mo
mom2bugnbee @PirateJenny You should! All three were amazing. 1mo

AmyG No 2mo
Come-read-with-me @Ddzmini I want to say no, but curiosity might get the best of me. If I could read it the day before my life ended - definitely! 2mo

LoverofLit No thank you. As soon as I realized it I'd give it to my husband and demand he burn it so I wouldn't peek. No one should know how their story ends. 2mo
nitalibrarian Honestly, I probably would. I can't resist spoilers. 😆 2mo
DaveGreen7777 I wish I could say “No”, but the truth is, I‘d probably peek at the ending! 🙈 2mo
jaimeisbionic I'd probably peek at the last page. I'm a last page peeker. 2mo
Ddzmini @Come-read-with-me, @LoverofLit, @nitalibrarian, @DaveGreen7777, @jaimeisbionic I don‘t think I could, I like the mystery 🤣🤣🤣 (edited) 2mo

I have never listened to Howard Stern‘s programme and really enjoyed most of the interviews he has compiled into this collection. Also enjoyed the bonus of his introductions to each of them with a more recent perspective on the discussions than what he may have felt at the time they were done. Not all of them work - but there was a lot of fascinating tidbits throughout.
