I was totally blown away by this wonderful Toni Morrison documentary “The Pieces I am.”I was trying to get to a theater to see it, small films don‘t stay around very long.She is amazing & to see her fellow writers sing her praises is wonderful.Watch for it , time well spent.

#PoetryMatters - Home: I don‘t remember how I found this poem. When you read poetry it comes to you from several different places. Whatever I was doing on the day of this discovery I was in the right place at the right time. It has the weight of an anthem & the urgency of a black & white truth. The poet wrote it while at a deportation center after visiting an abandoned Somali Embassy in Rome that had been turned into a home by some young refugees.

Nute ☝🏽 no one leaves home until home is a sweaty voice in your ear
saying —
run away from me now
i dont know what i‘ve become
but i know that anywhere
is safer than here👇🏽

TheSpineView This poem speaks volumes in just a small amount of verse! Excellent! 💜 5d
Nute @TheSpineView Agreed! It does speak volumes. It is an urgent beacon from the poet to the reader to look at the world and really see what has become of us and our home. Words serving as a warning...a signal. It is a reminder that once peace is disturbed in any home then the peace is disturbed on a universal level for all inhabitants of this place. She is a gifted poet! 1d
TheSpineView @Nute Very gifted poet! Thanks for sharing this gem! 💜 1d

1. Middle-Earth. Anybody may guess it from my feed 😆
2. I think three is about right. Enough to create a world but not too long to give a conclusion to a story. I read also longer series, especially if each book can also stand alone. My favourite series is of course The Lord of the Rings.
3. Yes. I write historical fantasy stories set in the 1920s
4. I tag @KendallHershey @Lifeisasnap @Hazel2019

One of the best things in life! When you go to a bookstore you shopped years ago ..before you moved away...still the same owner, still the same carefully curated selection of wonderful books! Chopin‘s 1st book ,#virago , and a Grace Lumpkin !😻😻📚📚
Happy dance!

LeahBergen Ooooo!😍😍😍 I‘ve never read Grace Lumpkin. Should I? 1mo
Leftcoastzen @LeahBergen She is an excellent writer ,her approach was more left leaning in the 1930s.I think her under appreciation could be the rise of the McCarthy era red scare in the fifties .She writes more of the working class .I loved (edited) 1mo
batsy What a gorgeous haul. Green Viragos and that Chopin cover! 1mo

#bookhaul! Seven books including: three ARCs and one signed first edition. All written by women! 🙌

I hope this week is going to have as much reading time as I think it will!! 🤞🤞🤞🤞🤓📚📖🛋

This is how I ruin my chances of succeeding in my 2019 reading challenge. 👎

I ended up enjoying this book a lot more than I anticipated, despite the fact that Vivi made a lot of opposite-than-I-would choices. In a lot of ways, this is a story about secrets and how often keeping them hurts the people we are trying to protect. While I did enjoy this one, I doubt I will read it again, so let me know if you would like me to mail you this copy!!

1. I‘m so not a scary movie person and what I look forward to most at Halloween is It‘s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. Love that!
2. My boss is pretty awesome - let‘s me come and go as I please and trusts me on projects
3. I‘ve only really had 3 in my lifetime so far 😂 I guess this one? I complain about it but I do have a good situation going on
