A short punchy book with lots of good advice.
Also ticking off the #somethinginspirational box for #NonFiction2019 as this book has inspired me to just do the art. 😄

No offense meant for Grandma Gatewood - her story is an inspirational story, and I‘m sure it would be a hoot to have heard her talk about her adventure. The low rating is really due to the construction of the book. I wish the writing was as glowing and glowing throughout the entire book rather than at the end. Too choppy in a way, and I think it‘s because every detail from her journal is used. I can see why people gush over this, but not for me.⬇️

Librarybelle #SomethingInspirational for #Nonfiction2019 , because she had such a terrible life and found inspiration in nature. @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 4mo
Librarybelle And, my choice for #withmylittlestickofblackpoolrock , because she had a walking stick and climbed over rocks! 😂 Probably as close as I can get for today‘s #RedRoseSeptember @Cinfhen @arlenefinnigan 4mo
arlenefinnigan Good work! 😉 4mo
Cinfhen Ha!!! Great review and nice way to tie in today‘s prompt!!!! 4mo

Odette Sansom deserves to be more well known. After volunteering in WWII she was sent into occupied France where she successfully ran missions until betrayed by a member of her unit. Imprisoned & tortured by the Gestapo & was eventually sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp, put in a dark isolation cell & left to die. She survived all of it & was the most decorated spy of WWII #NonFiction2019 #SomethingInspirational #Booked2019 #SoldiersStory

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Stacking! That sounds excellent, and definitely like someone we should all know more about. 6mo
Cinfhen Sounds great!! Thanks for posting & sharing ♥️ 6mo

Oh how I wish I could be as brave as Lindy! I am happy that she is one of the women changing the framing of rape in comedy. I am overjoyed that she is proud to be fat because I am one of the women she makes feel more beautiful. I can‘t wait for her next book this spring! 5⭐️

britt_brooke Meg, may I ask what book you used for “from another POV”? I‘m trying to gauge if what I‘m planning to use makes sense. 11mo
Megabooks @britt_brooke I used this one. There were so many examples of how black people (students and professors) were treated differently - on college campuses in particular. Especially black men. Plus his upbringing was entirely different from mine. I feel like I was too dumb and immature to think about how people were treated when I was actually in college. I‘m glad I‘ve gone back and thought about it. Hope this helps! 11mo
8little_paws @Megabooks that book is amazing! 11mo

Megabooks @8little_paws It totally is! Kiese follows me on Twitter!!! 🎉😁😱 I posted to him how grateful I was to read Heavy and HtSKYaOiA. Both are fantastic books! 11mo
Weaponxgirl Just so you know, of course you are beautiful! 11mo
britt_brooke @Megabooks Thanks! Very helpful. I was thinking of using The Trauma Cleaner and I think it works as well. PS. I read Heavy recently and loved it. 11mo
Megabooks @Weaponxgirl Thank you! ☺️ 11mo
Megabooks @britt_brooke From the description I read from @Cinfhen, I‘d 100% agree! 11mo
britt_brooke @Megabooks Thank you! 11mo
Cinfhen I read this last year and thought she was really entertaining and insightful. A few essays were a bit over the top but that‘s her “shtick” 11mo
Cinfhen I think I used Hillbilly Elegy for my another POV @britt_brooke 11mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen That‘s helpful, too - thanks! I feel good about my choice now for sure. You ladies are the best! @Megabooks 11mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I thought she struck a pretty good humor balance. I‘m excited to see what‘s next for her. 11mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen @britt_brooke I think the two of you are pretty fantastic! 🤗🤗💙 11mo
britt_brooke @Megabooks 🥰🤗😙 11mo
Cinfhen Awww, feel the same way about you, Meg 😘😘 11mo
