dgingo @StellarDoc Ooh! I need to check out the new schedule! Isn‘t that the weekend of Holly Black, too? I need to get a ticket if I‘m going—I tried to, but my new zip code causes me some problems with online orders. 14mo

dgingo @StellarDoc Thanks! Obviously I‘ve failed to consult my planner. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 14mo

#audioknitting up at the mountain again while the kids 🎿 and board. Homework tonight so I shall enjoy the now.
I‘m not loving this but not hating it either. Celebrity memoirs have a much lenient scale than my usual scale. #sadbuttrue

[DELETED] 3803335244 Beautiful view!!! Yes to audio knitting 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 Wanted to let you know we received round 2 book! Thank you! My son loves the pen & bookmark. ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
josie281 @ForeverNerdy sorry it was late! But glad he likes it! 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 Oh no problem at all! He‘s not crazy about reading the book this time around. But I‘m hoping he changes his mind about it once we read it. Lol 😂 2y
josie281 @ForeverNerdy that‘s the fun of the rounds, isn‘t it?? My oldest son really enjoyed the series but I think it was due to aspects of the story like pigs bladders. 😂 2y

The Sociopath Next Door | Martha Stout, Ph.D.

Slight cheat on this - 11yrs, not 10. I went into this knowing these types of books play off fear & making mundane fantastical. That being said, I enjoyed it. I think it's true that many people around us have at least some traits associated with sociopathy - and that these traits may in fact lead to success for some (in competitive environments where empathy may actually hold you back.) #sadbuttrue #published10yearsago #litsy2017readingchallenge

• People are basically illiterate--either "attitudinally" or "functionally": they simply don't like to do much serious reading or thinking, and they are hooked on entertainment. •

I hope that the fact I am super late with this #Bookface for my #ReadJanuary doesn't matter because, honestly, this probably the best.
