Hello #SheSaid, sorry for the late start today. Got busy with other plans and just now settling in back at home.

Ready to discuss, even if a bit late on my end 😉

Bookwormjillk I thought her observations of the 2016 election were fascinating. 16h
ravenlee @Bookwormjillk exactly - the whole idea that not having a specific plan let all the candidates get away with avoiding the whole issue was eye-opening. And candidates (Sanders) actually leaving forums because they were questioned on something they didn‘t want to answer smacks of taking dollies and dishes and going home. 15h

Great read! I remember that moment when I got hooked only a few chapters in.

My #bookhaul from yesterday's London #bookshopcrawl with @squirrelbrain @Oryx @LeeRHarry and @scripturient

Some of these were planned, others were total impulse buys. Some are gifts for the fam.
Books bought at Waterstones, Foyles, Daunt, and Gay's the Word. (And I lost my self control almost completely in Foyles. If we hadn't been on a schedule I might have ended up with twice as many books (and possibly a fraud check-up from my bank) 😅)

Oryx Lovely stack. Foyles' best customer yesterday 😁 1d
merelybookish It looked like such a fun day! And what a stack! 1d
Leniverse @Oryx @merelybookish 7 books and a very sturdy tote bag from Foyles. I winced when it was totalled up, and the book seller jokingly said he hoped I hadn't come in for just one book. 😂 I assured him that I'd come to London for the express purpose of buying lots of books. 1d

BarbaraBB Quite the stack 😍 1d
squirrelbrain You win the prize for the biggest stack! 1d
batsy What a stack! I'm totally drawn to that Ransome spine. 1d
Leniverse @batsy They're great! My 11 y/old has four of them already with that cover so I got him one he hasn't read yet for his collection. 1d
LeeRHarry Stack of the day! 😆 24h
LeahBergen What a haul! 20h

I liked this. She is an amazing woman and an amazing speaker. There are still some things that I don‘t understand about American politics (I‘m Canadian), but I learned a few things, too. And it really was an interesting look behind the scenes of the Obamas lives, as well as behind the scenes in the White House. I like that she really seems down-to-earth and was all about (as much as she could be) keeping her daughter‘s lives as normal as possible

kbibliophilific She‘s a true gem! The book was good- just like Barack‘s book! ❤️ 1d
ravenlee I don‘t think it‘s possible to truly understand American politics… 1d

This book is incredibly important for Americans. Koch is an out of control extremely conservative family and giant conglomerate. They have spent decades buying up companies and abusing workers and in the last few decades have turned to manipulating the US government in everything from tax plans to healthcare to the EPA.
This was well written and well researched and shows not only how pervasive the co is but how controlling and greedy.

ChaoticMissAdventures The writing and layout of this is similar to (giving so much to think about) and just as good as 2d

When you go to the library to pick up the one book you had on hold and you come home with five. 🤭

Nute That‘s the way to do it! 2d
BarbaraJean Yep! It‘s nearly impossible for me to check out just one book from the library—I‘ve taken to having my husband pick up my holds if I really need to keep my library pile down! 2d
Amiable @Ruthiella @Ruthiella @kspenmoll @Nute Now I just have to finish them all before they‘re due! 😀 1d
Amiable @BarbaraJean I hear you! I‘ve been trying to borrow e-books through my library‘s Libby app—that way I just get the one I want and get out. It‘s harder to browse that way! But this one was only available in print. So I went crazy in the stacks. 😀 1d

This was an excellent read that talked about John Lewis lessons learned during the various moments during the civil rights movement. Loved the narrator, they did well by John Lewis.
