I remember when I heard Hillbilly Elegy was a great explanation of the rise of the Tea Party and the conservative right in blue collar America. Then I read the book and found it wanting. I should have immediately picked up this book, because it‘s everything the other book wasn‘t. Social commentary done by a professional, but readable.

Sace I have avoided Hillbilly Elegy because it just strikes me as a book I don't want to read (don't know why), but I have this one sitting on a shelf. I should read it. I bought it right after the 2016 election and then didn't read it 🙄 1mo
Crazeedi I may read this one, I have Appalachia in my background, and it's much more complex and misunderstood than people know. Parts of elegy were on the mark, but parts were not. 1mo

BarbaraTheBibliophage @Scochrane26 Thanks - even reading the posts about that book is interesting. 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Sace Give it a try. It‘s way more worth your time than Hillbilly Elegy. 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Crazeedi it‘s a good book. But know, it‘s not about Appalachia. It‘s mostly about Southern Louisiana. 1mo
Crazeedi @BarbaraTheBibliophage yes I did see that, still many things may be similar in traditions, that's what I'm interested in learning!! 1mo

1. Either returning to the gym after a cold and sinus infection, or the Lev Parnas interviews
2. Expecting some snow, so I put the puzzle table up!
3. The tagged book and Wild by Cheryl Strayed

Thanks for the tag @Riveted_Reader_Melissa ! I‘m late to the game, so if you‘re seeing this, consider yourself tagged. 🤓

Audiobook accompaniment to my holiday de-decorating today. I‘m trying hard to read not just #MountTBR books, but those from the #waybacklist. And this is long overdue. Hoping it also counts as #somethingabouteconomics for the #nonfictionchallenge2020.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds like a great book, and I think it will definitely work for that. 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yeah, it‘s really interesting and so far set in Louisiana bayou country. We are headed to NOLA next month, so it‘s a good perspective. And I‘m about 2 hours in—seems like a fit! 1mo

When your 4 yr old daughter sets up a tea party and includes a book at each place setting ... and puts the one titled "Play Nice" at her twin brother's seat.

#LetsTravelJuly Day 28: What I found so fascinating in this book is the hint of danger that is skirting around the edges. When the girl got lost in the #forest (she was actually following a bear rather than her father), she chanced upon this strange house where apparently, a tea party was taking place.

Starting this one tonight.
Might be perfect timing - might be enraging.
