#nonfiction2023. My usual goal is one nonfiction per month. Crushed it! I have a couple “slow but steady” reads that have turned into just slow. So my goal this year is to finish a couple nonfiction chunksters. And that‘s it. #nonfiction24

My end of the year #Nonfiction2023! Not a complete card, but boy some great books in there!

And I can see I‘m way WAY behind on reviews 😂. New Years Resolution, go back to reviewing right after I finish or I won‘t get back to it. 🤣

#Nonfiction2023 There's nothing I love more than a completely subjective BINGO! Really had fun with this one.

Is anyone doing a nonfiction challenge for 2024?

Amiable Yes, @Riveted_Reader_Melissa is again hosting a NF challenge: #Nonfiction2024 6mo

Highly recommended: captures the courage and terror of people fleeing through #Mexico from #Guatemala, #ElSalvador, and #Honduras in the hope of a safer life in the U.S. Centred on “The Beast,“ a train to which people cling in any way possible through Mexico. Martinez does a fabulous job of interviewing people from various backgrounds and at all stages of the journey. #ReadingtheAmericas2023 #Nonfiction2023 #StillHaventfoundwhatI'mLookingFor

Definitely one of my favorite books of the year. This book was had so many facets. Insurance coverage in the US, disability coverage, medical care. Chung discusses the health outcomes of both her parents & their subsequent passing. There were several aspects of her story that I definitely related to. My FIL had several types of cancer & he had been sick as long as my husband & I had been together. When my husband was offered a post doctoral

ncsufoxes position on the other side of the US it was a hard decision to make but necessary for his career. My husband couldn‘t bare to watch his dad get sicker, even though it was so difficult to be so far away (& we didn‘t have money to travel). We did get to be with him for the last few weeks of his life but it was not what my husband imagined (his dad passed when he was 40). My in laws fortunately had great health insurance & great doctors. It still 6mo
ncsufoxes doesn‘t take the hurt away. My husband still hates that he never got to do all the things he wanted to do with him as an adult but my FIL was always sick. Anyhow a heartbreaking story but such a great book. #bookspin book, #nonfiction2023 prompt: killing in the name (because the healthcare system in the US sucks & too many people suffer needlessly) 6mo

#nonfiction2023 is complete! Thank you @Riveted_Reader_Melissa for the fun prompts. This is the most nonfiction I‘ve read in a year and I‘m very proud of this fact.

I‘m glad this book exists and I hope it gets to be widely read. Sarah writes about childism with knowledge & passion but it‘s a very accessible read. Why are children still treated so poorly despite increasing research into child development etc? There‘s chapters on neoliberalism & how this impacts the school system, politics, reasons why people choose to ignore childism, discipline & lots more. It made me mad reading it but also more informed.
