I love wine, find it fascinating & enjoy books about it so
I decided to go the non-fiction route for today‘s #winetasting prompt. 🍷🍇🍷 Most of these are books I own/have read except for Wine Girl which is on my Kindle #TBR & the tagged book which is on my #wishlist just waiting for a good reason or at least some semi-reasonable sounding justification to buy it.😉 📚📚📚🤷🏻‍♀️📚📚📚

JenReadsAlot I enjoyed Wine Girl! 6mo
Eggs 👏🏻🍇🍷🥂👏🏻 6mo

I haven‘t made nearly a big enough dent in my TBR this year compared to last year but that didn‘t stop me from checking out my local Goodwill. A little retail therapy was in order and this is what I ended up with 😜. #bookhaul #goodwill #usedbooks #wishlist #photography

All This Could Be Yours | Jami Attenberg
post image

Went and saw Jami Attenberg tonight. Loved it. I finished the audiobook earlier today and had a very good time reading it. It‘s juicy. It‘s fast-paced. It‘s about what a dysfunctional and very wealthy family does when the patriarch (an undeniably BAD man) is in a coma. One child asks, “Do you promise?”

Jami described the book as kaleidoscopic and I agree. Central characters exist, also cameos of others; every one has a place and feels explored.

Texreader Great review 2y

I'm rereading the tagged book. It's heartbreaking. I have no words. There are many alive today who believe it is "Jewish propaganda" something I've been told to my face and that I'm a "lying murderous jew". We can #neverforget and we must teach our children. This can never happen again. (I know I've been posting about the holocaust lately sorry if it upsets anyone my experiance hit me hard and It impacted me greatly)


AprilMae I had a crazy intense argument in high school with a kid 3 or so grades older than me about that same thing. His parents or something basically told him that it never happened. I got so, so, so angry with him. So the people who lost family were lying? So the people who have those tattoos and the terrible scars were lying? So Germany and Poland have these giant random buildings and sites set aside BECAUSE NOTHING HAPPENED????? 2y
Chrissyreadit It should hit hard- and should be taught and discussed - sometimes I think we did not learn a damn thing. 2y
Insightsintobooks @AprilMae wow, I'm suprised he didn't learn at least something about it in High school. I heard more schools are making holocaust education mandatory which I believe is a good thing. 2y

AprilMae I couldn't believe that this guy, who had to take the same history class as I would the following year, which was a huge in depth look at the Holocaust and the war, didn't believe it. After all the stories, the videos and the haunting photographs, he just didn't get it. 2y
AprilMae The following year I had the opportunity to visit Dachau on a trip to Germany. It was an (for lack of a better term) amazing yet terrifying sight to see. In the 2-3 hours we were there is would end up crying numerous times. I honestly think that if these non-believers who think it never happened had to go to one of the camps, saw the crematorium, saw the massive pile of shoes from the victims, still there! Maybe they would understand. 2y
AprilMae @Insightsintobooks my school did a great job on teaching it. And maybe I'm just a history nerd who soaks up all the history, but I think that class was one of the more well liked classes (not because of subject matter but because of how it was taught). I fully support a well taught Holocaust class be mandatory for all students. 2y
AprilMae (Also, sorry to take over your comments @Insightsintobooks !!! But I too, am passionate about people knowing about this) 2y
Insightsintobooks @AprilMae I agree, and one would only hope. 2y
Insightsintobooks @AprilMae it's okay. I understand. 2y
Insightsintobooks @Chrissyreadit I agree that sometimes it feels that way. 2y
nichollinlove In high school I hosted two girls from Germany and the very first night here they apologized with tears in their eyes for the Holocaust. At 15, I was beside myself, something that seemed like a lifetime ago to me was something these girls still felt the burden and shame of. That experience helped open my eyes and my heart more than anything I learned in a textbook at school. 2y
nichollinlove Also, I just started reading Tattoist of Auschwitz and 50 pages in, my heart is just breaking. It's hard to understand how this could happen. How men/soldiers could be so blindly cruel. I can't imagine how dense you would have to be to choose to believe this didn't happen. It's disrespectful and shameful as a thought alone. 2y
Insightsintobooks @nichollinlove I agree it is a shameful thought. 2y
Lifeisasnap I met a 20ish gal the other day that denied it ever happened & that all the historians were making it up because we are a war loving nation. I almost slapped her face! My grand uncle was liberated from Auschwitz-Birkenau & yet never returned to his family. My poor Oma didn‘t know her brother had been liberated when she died at the age of 92. My uncle found out after they went to the camp & saw his name in the book. It was a blessing & traumatic. 2y
Lifeisasnap Have you read Cilka‘s Journey yet? I found it more hopeful and yet even more heartbreaking. If you haven‘t read it I recommend it. 2y
Insightsintobooks @Lifeisasnap I'm so sorry. And yes I have read Cilka's Journey. 2y
Ddzmini 😨😰😰😰 2y
AnneCecilie That quote really is food for thought. I‘ve visited Auschwitz a while back and then the immensity of it all hit me. Rows and rows and rows of chimneys, as far as the eye can see. When I left, I was in tears 2y
Gaylagal2 Have you seen Prosecuting Evil on Netflix? The man is a hero for what he did and his perseverance to prosecute natzis👊🤙 2y
Insightsintobooks @Gaylagal2 no, I haven't. I actually don't have Netflix. 2y
Insightsintobooks @AnneCecilie I agree about the quote. I can only imagine what visting Auschwitz was like, I've never been, but maybe one day. 2y
CarolynM I've met someone who was with the first British troops into Belsen-Belsen. I suppose he was lying too😡 2y
Cinfhen Such a powerful quote! I recently read this book and I was astonished by new “material” I wasn‘t aware of. Really heartbreaking. 2y
Insightsintobooks @Cinfhen it is. Have you read Cilkas Journey yet? 2y
Cinfhen Not yet, it‘s high up on my #WishList 2y
