I loved this book, about all the different ways that charts can deceive us, particularly those shown in the media. I‘m sure some people would absolutely hate a book all about charts and graphs(it does get quite math-y in places too!), but it‘s right up my street!

Thanks for gifting it to me @jenniferw88 , from your #jennyis30 challenge!

Thanks @jenniferw88 for the goodies 😻

Invisible Women illustrates how the male default/bias across broad swaths of society leads to policies and behaviors that benefit men and discriminate against women, at times with deadly consequences. It‘s data-heavy but not at all dry and sadly it did not surprise me at all, though it is fascinating. In order to change our world, we need to make problems of ingrained bias visible and this is a good step in that fight.

squirrelbrain I‘ve had this on my TBR shelf for a while.... it‘s one of those books that I really want to read but somehow never get round to! 2y
Hooked_on_books @squirrelbrain I know how that is! I think you‘ll be glad when you get to this one—it‘s really well done. 2y

Sorry for the delay in posting my #jennyis30 bingo board, Jenny. I hope I‘m not too late!

I had lots of fun doing this challenge, although pulling it together this morning I feel like it seems a loooong time since I read some of these books - what a year!

@jenniferw88 Thanks for the reminder to post my #Jennyis30 board!

I find it hard to keep up with bingo boards, and all of my reading goals sort of fell apart with the stress of this year, but I loved this challenge. It pushed me to read a few books completely out of my comfort zone, and I got 1 bingo line!

I hadn't updated this in so long and had to go back through my reading log to see what fit. I did manage a bingo which surprised me.

Not the neatest of bingo boards, but you can see I managed 5 bingos, only three spaces are left but all in different lines which stopped me getting more of course! #JennyIs30
