Finally purchased this....I‘m really interested in seeing what Dr. Joy DeGruy‘s research say about its lasting impact on black bodies/well being and health. #books #booklover #newbooks #socialjusticereads

#30junebooks - day 19 - reading place. One of my most frequent reading places is my car! I love audiobooks, and they make drives so much more fun. •
(Also, guys, WHITE FRAGILITY is wrecking me. I‘ve read a lot about social justice in the last few years, and racial reconciliation is important to me, but ooooof this book is hitting painfully close to home.) 💔❤️

Kimberlone Awesome that your car actually displays the audiobook cover art! 12h
BooknerdsLife Hahaa I used to get a lot of reading done in my car too 😂 But not with audio books, just from reading in the car while waiting for my kid from school or other after school activities 😆🤗 Really miss those days! 10h

Reading this book on Juneteenth feels very appropriate. I could quote from it all day, but here is one I made a bookmark of in my audiobook. “My race is unremarkable. I belong, when I turn on the tv, read bestselling novels, and watch blockbuster movies. I belong, when I walk past the magazines racks at the grocery store or drive past billboards. I belong...” #howjessreadsin2019 #juneteenth #whitefragility

Ashley_Nicoletto Oh man. This quote makes me want to read it more. 11h

I actually really liked this book - infinitely readable (or listenable lol) and covers important topics more people need to be aware of. Unfortunately, the ending is probably a little too perfect and neatly wrapped up to be plausible.

EVERYBODY go read this book!! I know I‘m late to the party and everyone already knows this, but I really needed this hook. It wasn‘t always comfortable, but that‘s the point!! Let it push you to do more and be better, and just THINK about things you may not have considered or might need to look at in a different light!!

My co-worker endorsed this one saying it made her cry. I don‘t usually enjoy Jodi Picoult very much but figured I‘d give it a try. #labsoundtrack

Kaylamburson This was my favorite Picoult so far! 2d

When you find out you can get a library card from the next county........why not?!?!? I obviously have a problem. In my defense our county library is super small and has a limited selection. #librariesarecool #readingaddiction #books

Kaylamburson Small Great Things is amazing! Picoult's best in my opinion. 5d
jb72 @Kaylamburson Good to know. I‘m not a huge fan of her books, but wanted to give it a go. (edited) 5d
Kaylamburson I'll be interested to hear what you think! 5d
jb72 @Kaylamburson I‘ll keep you posted. 5d

A very good book and must read. a good book for every person, every college student, every high school student should read it and really think about what's being said in the book. It's a real eye-opener.

This is a MUST READ! Our info-seeking habits are almost exclusively focused on internet tools like Google & Yelp, but many of us don't know how these platforms work. Dr. Noble does an amazing job examining & exposing the predatory ways these companies colonize, monetize, restrict, manipulate, & distribute info. Digital media literacy is so important cuz we are effectively lied to by tech every day. We need more regulation & more librarians!
