Today I started the book I spontaneously checked out from the library yesterday while out doing a "Berkeley Walks" date downtown with my husband! I love the Berkeley Public Library. ? And so far I'm enjoying this book, which I picked up simply because it was in the "New" section and is titled after one of my favorite hobbies. ? #libraryhaul

Scochrane26 I like to cross stitch, too. 2h

Stone Yard Devotional | CHARLOTTE. WOOD

Simone saw me at the tall glass-fronted 'library' in the sitting room, looked at the book in my hand and snorted. 'You know there are good books in those shelves, don't you?' I did know. Dorothy Lee, Edith Stein, Joan Chittister, Simone Weil, Ariel Burger. Arendt, Nussbaum, Hitchens, Robinson, Merton. But Simone had caught me engrossed in Stories of the Saints...

.... at every step of my every attempt I have only worsened the destruction. Every email, meeting, press release, conference, protest. Every minuscule action after waking means slurping up resources, expelling waste, destroying habitat, causing ruptures of some other kind. Whereas staying still, suspended in time like these women, does the opposite. They are doing no harm.
On the other hand, 'evil flourishes...'

The full cast and plethora of suspects made this a very enjoyable listen. The information contained in the letter written by one character was necessary but it felt so bizarre that anyone would have written that stuff down so I felt like that was a week spot. Otherwise this was a good background to my work day.
(This title is not in the database so I tagged a different book by this author.)

Started this one a couple months ago for a study at a friend's church. Some of the stuff it talked about was already things I did, but this organized it all in a different way to give you a solid structure for how to read the Bible. I'm not quite sure about everything she had to say, especially in the beginning chapters, but her desire for proper Bible study bled through the pages. I'm definitely going to begin using her method.

I should have read this book ages ago, but better late than never! I see the drawbacks of Friedan‘s approach, how she focuses on a very narrow subset of women for her work, but I do think it‘s full of important criticism. I saw myself in these pages, much more than I‘d like. Definitely worth a read.

TheDaysGoBy It‘s on my TBR. I‘ve never read it either 2w
GingerAntics I remember reading this for a class in grad school, but for the life of me, I remember very little of it. 2w
Singout I‘m listening to Doppelgänger by Naomi Klein right now… she talks about this era of feminism. 2w

(Inset from Rollo May, “Contributions of Existential Psychotherapy)

Friedan uses this in her argument against housewives “adjusting” to their limited existence, but it really struck me how this applies to LGBTQ+

Bookwomble I want to read some Rollo May - he's often referenced in other books I've read, but I've not managed to get around to him. I see here what I'm missing! 2w

This week, I‘m sharing my #weeklyfavorites. The only book I finished this month and liked was the tagged book. It‘s about all of the women in the Bible. It was interesting. I think it‘s a good book for a Women‘s Bible Study group or to read on your own for fun like I was doing. I‘m not in a Bible Study group but I still got a lot out of reading this book. This one was on my #bookspinbingo list and I can finally cross it off.

Read4life Nice pick! 🤓 2w

Here‘s my review for a book I just finished reading. This is the second book I‘ve read for #awesomeapril. This will also count for #bookspinbingo. This book was picked last month when the numbers were drawn so now, I can cross this one off my #bookspin list and be done with it. It was interesting but I‘m not going to reread it. Reading it once was enough for me.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 3w
