My next selection for #nonfictionnovember, for the DESIGN prompt. I have never and—unless they invent 1000% safe and painless teleportation—will never visit Paris (or.........anywhere else), but I‘ve always had such a strong affinity for it and everything else to do with France. Je t‘adore de loin, et je suis content d‘avoir des livres qui m‘aident rêver. (I probably made a few errors there. C‘est la vie!) ???? #nowreading

About unpleasant people on the internet:

“There are some horrible, nasty people in the world who delight in making other people unhappy... if you were at a party and there was an obviously aggressive dickhead there, would you try to engage them? Would you earnestly try to explain why they were wrong or would you instead spend your time with people who don‘t make you feel like shit?”

Good advice.

MicheleinPhilly Seriously. I‘ve never understood why people take the time to engage with trolls. 14h
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly @Libby1 exactly! If you were in the pub you‘d just walk away. 14h
MicheleinPhilly @TrishB The sad thing is that I feel the vast majority of these people would never behave that way in a pub (or anywhere else IRL.) It‘s the anonymity that empowers them. 14h
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly so true 😕 11h

I‘m only on chapter 6 but what an eccentric cast of characters.....and they aren‘t fictional 😉I‘m intrigued so far #MidnightParty #NonFictionNovember

Cinfhen OMG!!! Chapter 7 was WILD 😳I hope none of you are going to be offended....lots of foul language and The Lady Chablis is quite a character 😛 (edited) 19h

vivastory Your posts are making me really eager to start this, but honestly it might be a couple of days before I do. I really want to finish Dark Tower before I begin any other books right now. 17h
Balibee146 I'm only a couple of chapters in but loving this.... Its making me want to travel 👍 17h
Suet624 A great story. This book got me interested in reading non-fiction 15h
Cinfhen I always say real life is stranger than fiction @Suet624 but this group is UNREAL 14h
Cathythoughts I‘ve started too ...I liked the start with Jim Williams & Danny .... a lot more characters coming in now , but I‘m anxious to get back to the main story about the murder. Savannah sounds like an interesting place for sure 😁👍🏻 unusual place 14h
Cathythoughts I have to keep reminding myself it‘s non - fiction 😳 14h
Balibee146 I need to get a couple of hours reading tonight.... Need to get to Chapter 7 right 😉😁👍 cheers reading buddies 💕 12h
lele1432 Ugh my audio loan has been saying "available soon in the next few days" since last week! ? Hopefully it will come through tonight or tomorrow lol 12h
Bookzombie You are all making me want to push this one up on my TBR. 🙂 6h
mrp27 I enjoyed this book so much I added a stop in Savannah on my cross country road trip (summer 2001) Loved the city. 4h
Cinfhen This book is great for #ArmChairTravel but like you, @Cathythoughts I‘m curious about the murder....I purposely haven‘t read anything about it so I don‘t even know who was murdered and who was accused of murder @Balibee146 @mrp27 @lele1432 it reads pretty quickly so I‘m sure you‘ll catch up. @erzascarletbookgasm @vivastory haven‘t begun either so no worries. If you have a copy and want to join in @Bookzombie feel free!!!! 2h
Cathythoughts I thought everyone knew ( I didn‘t) about this murder because it‘s a true story.... I‘ll be careful with my comments when I get there 👍🏻😘 (edited) 36m
Cinfhen Ha, nope I‘m ignorant of all info @Cathythoughts and it‘s better that way... but don‘t worry about slipping up ❣️ now

Fascinating and powerful essay collection. So many varied perspectives within the collection give a well rounded picture of the difficulties facing women journalists, and women in general, in the unsettled Arab world of today.

I‘ve been busy reading for #NonFictionNovember ! Loved YEAR OF THE MONKEY, which focused on death of loved ones. Disappointed in A ROOM OF ONE‘S OWN, which can be summed up in: “A woman needs money and a quiet space in order to write successfully”. 💜
