@TheBookHippie @ravenlee how about this? I don‘t have a hat, but I can create a random-ish outcome.

GingerAntics One spin or best of three? 6mo
TheBookHippie 😂😂😂 oh the decisions 😬 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie right? I like best of three, because it gives both books a real chance. If there were more than two books it would be easier to just go with one. 6mo

GingerAntics @TheBookHippie this is totally how we‘re picking books from now on. 🤣😂🤣 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics I‘m for that best of three and yes. This IS the way! 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie the wheel of wisdom has spoken… 6mo

Since we are skipping Piglet now, we need to choose our next read(s). Originally, we were going to read How the World Thinks after Piglet. We‘ve also discovered Every Time I Find the Meaning of Life, They Change It which is about past philosophers. We‘ve also found This Life (which some of us are quite excited about) that is more modern philosophy. Some argue it‘s Marxist, but they also seem very conservative, so we may not find that problem.

GingerAntics Plato at the Googleplex was also suggested. It‘s more a defence of philosophy and why it‘s important. What are everyone‘s thoughts on our next read (to begin in the new year) and the reads after that? Voting open now. 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie I have no idea what it‘s beef is. 6mo

Chrissyreadit I am not sure. But I have lots of philosophical thoughts in general I‘m desperate to discuss…. 6mo
GingerAntics @Chrissyreadit lol maybe you should write them all down, send out this magical document and THAT will be our next read. 6mo
Chrissyreadit 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 6mo
GingerAntics @Chrissyreadit we can give you some time to gather your thoughts if you‘d like and make it the read after next. 😂🤣😂 6mo
TheBookHippie @Chrissyreadit SAME😂😅 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics lord. I‘m banned literally everywhere 😂😵‍💫 6mo
TheBookHippie This Life is calling me but I‘ll read anything, clearly. And take notes 😂😅 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie you‘re definitely not banned here! Of course you‘ll take notes. What else would we all be doing. This Life is calling me as well. Of nothing else, it should produce interesting conversations and give us the opportunity to articulate our own spiritual lives which I‘m always game for. Sadly, neither of my libraries have it. I‘m going to have to buy it which is less of a problem if I get this job next week (but I doubt it‘s happening). 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie clearly a new book would make me feel better about that. 🤣😂🤣 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie oh it‘s dirt cheap on Apple Books. Obviously I deserve this book for going to a job interview last week. 6mo
Chrissyreadit @GingerAntics we have a massive teacher shortage here. You could get a job tomorrow. 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics 😂I‘ve had a week so … 😂 new book it is 😂😂 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics sorry about the job 😝 6mo
GingerAntics @Chrissyreadit I don‘t have a teaching certificate, just my masters. That‘s why I worked at a junior college. 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie I have no real logical reason to say it went badly. It‘s just a feeling. I don‘t know why. Maybe I‘m reading too much into things. I guess we‘ll see if I ever hear from them again. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics Me after every interview...... OY 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie at least it‘s not just me… it was the perfect job for me. It was the one job I‘ve applied for since September that I was absolutely confident I had all the qualifications before. There are a lot of life insurance companies looking for Sales people around here, but most of them require a car, even for working from home. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics the job market is just strange right now, in general, everywhere. 6mo
ravenlee I‘ve already got the Baggini, so I‘m ready for that one. I can track down whatever else I need to, though. 6mo
GingerAntics @ravenlee same. I got everything after we decided because I knew I could lose my job at any point. 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie there is all this “”we need people to take jobs,” but then all the jobs are so specific. 6mo
TheBookHippie @ravenlee that‘s good with me too. 6mo
kspenmoll I will read anything- I have This Life because my son has it, but I can go with whatever works best for all! 6mo
kspenmoll @GingerAntics So so sorry about the job hunting- I am thinking the interview might have gone better than you thought… I hope so! Looking for work is such a roller coaster. 6mo
kspenmoll @Chrissyreadit I am a newbie at philosophy, so love the idea of your own thinking… a magical document for us! @gingerantics 6mo
GingerAntics @kspenmoll it really is such a rollercoaster. It just feels all over the place. The phone interview seemed to go well. I was told they would make an appointment for an in person interview by the next day. I didn‘t hear anything for a week. So of course, in that week I figured I was out of the running. Now I‘m supposed to hear something next week about a decision from the in person interview… we‘ll see. (edited) 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics good grief 😝waiting is awful 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie it really is 6mo
GingerAntics @kspenmoll @TheBookHippie well, the wait is over. It‘s officially official, I did NOT get the job. I fear I‘m going to be selling life insurance very soon. 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics ACK. I am so very sorry!!! UGH. 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie no biggie. At least they had the courtesy to let me know so I wasn‘t sitting around waiting and wondering. 6mo
kspenmoll @GingerAntics I am so so sorry! I was really hoping this would be your job…💜 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie @ravenlee @kspenmoll @Chrissyreadit okay just wondering… between This Life and How the World Thinks, is one of the books easier to obtain and are they similarly priced or is one more expensive than the other where you prefer to get your books? (edited) 6mo
JaclynW @GingerAntics So sorry to hear you didn't get the job. Keep trying! Hopefully a good fit is coming your way soon! As far as the new books, I will try....my libraries don't currently have any of them. And sorry to be MIA lately! I've had kid stuff, holiday stuff and I was in charge of a big event that just wrapped up. No time for me lately.🙃 Hope to get on track again. 6mo
GingerAntics @JaclynW that‘s fine. This is a crazy time of year for everyone. I think that‘s why waiting until the new year will be a good move, especially for something like philosophy. There is so much to think about with it. 6mo
GingerAntics @JaclynW I have access to two libraries (and possibly soon three) and seriously neither has ANY of these books. I guess philosophy just isn‘t of enough interest, which is unfortunate. Maybe when I have a job again, I should get a copy of Plato at the Googleplex for each library (and maybe the little free library near here). 6mo
GingerAntics @JaclynW @kspenmoll @TheBookHippie okay, so I have a phone interview with one company and an in person interview with another company tomorrow. There is also another phone interview that still needs to be scheduled with a third company. The in person job, I can literally see from my front window, so 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 for that one for sure. 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 6mo
JaclynW @GingerAntics Best of luck to you! 6mo
JaclynW @GingerAntics Agreed. It's unfortunate that these books are difficult to come by. I will have to ask if my library will order them. 6mo
GingerAntics @JaclynW that‘s a good idea. What better way to get more people into philosophy than to try and get the library to buy them. Once it‘s more consistently safe, I wonder if I could convince the library to start a philosophy reading group. There could be one for jr high and high school kids and another for adults. Heck, if they ordered the right books, there could be a group for elementary age kids, too. 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics OH YAY A HOLIDAY GIFT!!!! I‘m so very happy for you. Plus so much writing material to be had!!! ✍🏼 6mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie right?! I can get all the philosophy books!!! So many philosophy books!!! 😂🤣😂 6mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 6mo
kspenmoll @GingerAntics So sooo thrilled for your new job!!!!!!!!! And right in your neighborhood!!! 💃💃🎉🎉 5mo
GingerAntics @kspenmoll isn‘t it great!!! 5mo
