Some of these works of art are really beautiful. It was a fun idea to compile these images from various time periods on the same topic into a book. The diversity of the subject was limited to age. It would have been more interesting if the author had included more current artwork with subjects of women of color and women of different religions besides Christianity.

I finally broke my #bookbuyban for 2022, it‘s been an awful year already so far, my birthday was a bust with us being sick, so I thought bugger it. 12 books later…They range from Crime to SciFi to Fantasy & Historical. With 3 signed copies! The hubby is going to South Australia for almost two weeks to see his 93yr old Nanna so it‘s a perfect time to tempt my reading brain with some new reads. Fingers crossed it gets it moving again🤞🤞🤞

Mehso-so

This is more of a stocking filler for the bibliophile in your life who you don't know very well, I'd say. It's not very in depth, just a collection of observations, lists and quotes about reading. There's a weird tendency to believe that people who love books are morally superior, and parts of this book indulge jokingly in that. All a bit hyperbolic and for a particular sort of reader for whom “being a reader“ is an identity.

Okay, I am entertained by the fact that Bloomberg have/had a Billy Bookcase Index, demonstrating exchange rate fluctuations in real terms by comparing the prices of IKEA bookcases.

All of ours are Billys, as you can probably see! Iconic. We actually made my dad the gingerbread flatpack furniture as a silly Christmas gift, and obviously picked a Billy!

Here is the absolute STACK of books my wife got me (with help from the last of my February book budget) for the UK #WorldBookDay -- which is apparently a different date to everyone else? A nice display of my random taste in books, I think.

Shelf Respect is very titbit-size and not terribly worth the buy so far. Not really insights, just "I love books, you love books, aren't we clever?"

Pst, #BunniesofLitsy, Hulk's showing off her smarts!

Beautiful day to be outside watching the littles run off some energy. Just so happens to be a perfect reading day as well!

Avanders So nice! 🥰 2y

#ForeverNovember Day 12: 2019 was my year of reading only #Women authors, and I have done a round-up of my progress and my key take-aways from this experience as can be seen above. More here: https://wp.me/pDlzr-leR

Wild Truth | Carine McCandless

Chris McCandless und seine Geschichte und vor allem der Film "into the wild" haben mich sehr berührt. In diesem Buch berichtet uns nun seine Schwester, wie es zu seiner "Flucht" in die Wildnis kam, sie erzählt über ihre Kindheit, geprägt aus Demütigungen, Schlägen und Missbrauch.
Es wird wahrscheinlich keine leichte Kost, bringt uns Chris aber wieder ein Stück näher.
Und jeder der den Film noch nicht gesehen hat:
Anschauen!
