I just read that Elizabeth Wurtzel died. She was only 52. While I have not read Prozac Nation, I burned through this one and More, Now, Again. I would recommend either of those. 😥

Does anyone else use the BookRiot reading log spreadsheet? I didn't use all of it but the year-end charts and graphs were a lot easier than the clunky way I'd get info in Goodreads. I examine the data at length here: http://readingenvy.blogspot.com/2020/01/2019-reading-by-numbers.html

wanderinglynn And the GR data isn‘t entirely accurate. I looked at my 2019 in review, it showed my longest novel had over 600 pages, which was completely wrong. That particular novel might clock in at 300 pages, but not 600+. I‘ll have to check out your post. 👍🏻 3w
judith_reads I didn't do it in 2019, but want to start for 2020 as I find GR to be really unreliable with their stats. They are also not tracking enough metrics. 3w
CocoReads I didn‘t even know about this. I may have to check it out! 3w

ReadingEnvy @kadeeth I'd try getting around the Goodreads limitations by creating tons of shelves and then combing "read2019" with each shelf at the end of he year to generate numbers.. this is easier!! 3w
ReadingEnvy @CocoReads just Google book riot reading log! 3w
Suet624 I really enjoyed reading your blog post about this. 3w
CocoReads @ReadingEnvy, I have it now. I don‘t know if I‘ll remember to fill things in most of the time but it looks like fun so I‘ll give it a whirl! 3w
ReadingEnvy @Suet624 thank you! 3w
ReadingEnvy @CocoReads I often do a bunch at a time. 3w
judith_reads @ReadingEnvy I did export my data on CSV and was thinking to throw it into Tableau to see what I can do there. I really want to visualise my reading year more! 3w
DGRachel I love it. I‘m trying to tweak the 2020 to suit me better, but I may just update the formulas in the 2019 one so it stays consistent. I don‘t care about most of the options added for 2020. 3w
ReadingEnvy @DGRachel I downloaded it but haven't really looked at it carefully. I saw in their post that they added narrator space which I liked, I thought I'd use it for translator too. 3w
ReadingEnvy @kadeeth ah cool! 3w
DGRachel I do like the narrator/translator field, but there‘s a bunch of fields now for tracking when you bought something, where, and how much you paid for it. I haven‘t really decided what I‘m going to do, yet. I‘m tempted to build something in Excel. I know how to create pie charts in Excel, so I could do it. 🤔 3w
ReadingEnvy Can you just download this one to Excel and just delete the stuff you don't want? 3w

On “efforts to mobilise against the prostituting and trafficking of women for sexual and other abusive purposes. This is sometimes cast as solely a gender problem—yet there are hierarchies among women in the US & all over the world that contribute to a woman being prostituted or trafficked. Ethnically & socially marginal women have fewer economic options & are more vulnerable to traffickers.”
Kimberlé Crenshaw

‘I don‘t find any basic contradiction or any tension between being a feminist, being a pan-Africanist, being a Black nationalist, being an internationalist, being a socialist, and being a woman.‘

Weaponxgirl I would agree. I find it can be scary to think about how vulnerable we all can be. Some people understandably don‘t want to think or talk about it and disrupt their sense of self and security. 3w
WomanistBibliophile @Weaponxgirl sadly true how much people prefer denial over reckoning with the reality of our vulnerability. I feel every day this is what is happening with environmental destruction as well. And the more denialism the greater the threat to us grows 3w
