Interesting collection so far. Pub date is October 1, so it might still be on NetGalley.

#Friyayintro @howjessreads

1. Loved revisiting some places I knew well, back in the day, including the Marina Safeway.
2. Chilly and overcast. About 70 degrees.
3. This guy Paul that I met at church. We went to see Full Metal Jacket. Not a date movie!
4. 4 sons, 6 grandkids, no pets (lots of family members have allergies)
5. 👍🏻👍🏻

Here‘s my eclectic haul from one of a few library and other book sales happening over the next several weeks. I‘m trying to restrain myself, because I also want to buy The Testaments. But these backlist books all intrigue me for different reasons. $5.25 for these plus three more I‘m giving as gifts.

The Overstory: A Novel | Richard Powers
post image

Our neighbor just had a row of tall pines taken down today. I‘m especially sad because I‘ve spent the week immersed in Richard Powers‘s incredible novel. It‘s making me hurt for these missing pines.

“This is not our world with trees in it. It's a world of trees, where humans have just arrived.”
― Richard Powers, The Overstory

Crazeedi I hate when people cut down trees😢 (I know it's really necessary sometimes, but just for no reason???) 6d
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Crazeedi Me too. We aren‘t close with these neighbors, so I don‘t know the whole story. But the trees seemed fine to me. 😢 6d
SauerPatch My mom had several trees cut down a couple months ago because they were dead or going to be very soon. And since then MULTIPLE neighbors on our street have had several cut down for no immediately apparent reason. It makes me sad. 😔 6d

DGRachel I was worried about neighborhood backlash when we recently had trees cut down. You couldn‘t tell by looking that there was anything wrong, but we had an arborist come in. We had two Bradford Pears removed (terrible, stinky, weak trees) and a group of cedars in the backyard that were dying. We‘ll eventually replace the Bradford with something better suited to our location. 6d
Crazeedi @DGRachel we've had to cut down dead ash trees and a pear that died so I get it! 6d
Hooked_on_books I found this book a little difficult to get into initially, but it completely won me over by the end. It‘s fitting that your neighbor‘s trees were removed as you are reading this—their loss will resonate with you so much more. Trees are amazing. 6d
BarbaraTheBibliophage @SauerPatch I‘m glad I‘m not the only one. Trees are so vital to our world. 6d
BarbaraTheBibliophage @DGRachel Funny, I was just talking with someone about the downsides of Bradford Pear trees. I know my neighbors trees might have hidden problems. Still sad to see them gone, though. 6d
Kayla.Adriena Ooooo love the quote. And I know how you feel. My dad just had to have a lovely tree removed because they are building a house. Makes me feel sick to my stomach 6d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa We‘ve had some pines by the house cut down a few years ago, PP&L wanted them gone. They were to close to their lines and a junction box apparently, never mind that they were older than I am, I still miss them. But after we had to remove a few in the back yard that blew over a few years before due to micro burst winds, I understand why they had to go. 6d
DGRachel @barbarathebibliophage I understand. I was especially sad to lose my cedar trees. Some of the shrubs are now thriving because they get more sunlight, but I‘m looking forward to replacing the Bradfords with better, native trees. 😊 6d
LibrarianRyan Here‘s hoping they plant new ones. 6d
UwannaPublishme It makes me sad to see trees cut down to build another shopping center or resort. I find solace in hugging our eucalyptus trees. 🤗🌳 6d

All the stars. Insightful and readable, I couldn‘t put this down. Read this if you care about the opioid crisis, mass incarceration, and how we fight the combination of drugs and crime. Also valuable if you want to learn about the issues from end-to-end. I couldn‘t recommend it more.

1. I just don‘t like books where the male boyfriend/lover/protagonist is this controlling. Especially when the book is read by legions of teenage girls. Healthy relationships don‘t have to be this way, people.
2. M*A*S*H — I‘m old school

Second-to-last Kinsey Millhone story. If you like your female detectives to solve crimes with old school methods, she‘s your girl. She is a bit cranky, mostly introverted, and takes a morning jog only out of necessity. This time, she sticks her neck into a few places it doesn‘t really belong. Definitely better than the last two books, which were disappointing.

BarbaraTheBibliophage @Gissy I have read them in order. Very very slowly, since she was still writing them during this time. I think I‘ve listened to more on audio than read the books. My first was back in the early 1990s. 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Gissy If you were going to start them, I think it does make sense to read them in order. They all happen over a relatively short time (just a few years) in the late 1980s. 2w

This is part memoir and part historical, political, social, racial, and religious commentary. The author is a Jew of Arab descent, and I liked the familial stories. He interspersed them with the other topics, which weren‘t half as strong. I‘m glad for what I learned, but definitely regret that I‘ll never get those hours back. Did a LOT of skimming.

This is a lovely book about life transitions, and how starting something new like a yoga practice can help manage the necessary adjustments. It‘s funny, touching, and easy to read in one quick sitting. If you run across it, and like yoga, Yiddish, and a little genuine advice from a Bubby, then give it a go. My pick for #booked2019 #giftedtoyou prompt. Thanks to my cohost @Cinfhen for sharing it with me. I‘ll pass it on to my yoga teacher friend.

Mary Beth Keane is a new author for me and her latest book has rocketed into the public consciousness lately. It‘s a character-driven novel with some intense events.

That moment when the last book you finished runs directly into the book you just started. The war on drugs is completely and entirely different for people of color than for white people. This is the third time I‘ve seen it said in print (that I recall). This is why I‘m angry about social injustices, among other reasons.

Definite 5 star book. It‘s a comprehensive look at systematic racial injustice in the U.S. from Reconstruction to the presidency of Barack Obama. Great overview, but also goes into plenty of specific detail. Solid half of pages are footnotes, so it‘s scholarly. OTOH, totally readable. Although I read slowly since it made me 😡.

This should be subtitled “The Perils of Parenting in 2019 When Your Teen is Accused of Killing a Much Older Man.” A lawyer mom and pastor dad with different parenting styles offer their perspectives. Edvardsson weaves it all together with the teen‘s viewpoint as well. He shifts us to past and present but keeps it mostly clear. It‘s a good twisty Swedish thriller! (TW: rape)

Last Sunday I listened to a podcast that presented an appallingly gendered way of describing readers and their preferences. I was so gobsmacked that I wrote a fairly long blog post discussing and refuting their theory. I‘d love to start a discussion on the blog post, if you‘re up for a read! 🚻🚺🚹

Full post http://thebibliophage.com/lets-not-make-reading-gendered/

Blaire Great post! Totally agree with your post...also I read fiction not just to empathize but also to learn - about other cultures, other identities, other life experiences. There is much to be learned from fiction. I‘ve heard from people who don‘t read fiction because they want to learn when they read - I always say you can learn from fiction too. And yes some of the best non-fiction reads like a novel and evokes empathy. (edited) 4w
Blaire Also I love Ann patchett and get her descriptions about her customers, but reading is so gendered from a young age, that it is important to push back. 4w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Blaire Thanks! Yes, I have learned SO much about other places and people from fiction. It‘s made me a better judge of people, I think. I found a bunch of articles online about raising readers in a non-gendered way. It‘s so important! And I think it‘s becoming more common, but we still need work. 4w

BarbaraTheBibliophage @cobwebmoth Thanks for taking the time to give it a read. Glad it resonated with you too! 4w
TrishB I loved that Barbara and agree with every word! I had a rant in Waterstones once with staff when they had a ‘mother‘s day‘ display for books to obviously buy Mum. All pink and fluffy, have no problem if anyone wants pink and fluffy, I don‘t. I pointed out not all Mums are the same and we don‘t all read the same. 4w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @TrishB Exactly!! Why would we stereotype reading choices? Thanks for reading and letting me know it made sense to you! Now we need our Litten booksellers to switch some displays around! 4w
TrishB On the other hand, Dads had a display that was all DIY or war books, nothing hubby wanted to read!! Just quit the gender stuff, read what you fancy for whatever reason. Disappointed in Patchett, pandering to stereotype. 4w
TrishB I already do that 😁😁 4w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @TrishB Exactly! Again. 🤪 My brother in law reads a ton of hot and sexy detective novels. He looks like a “history / war book guy,” but it‘s just not his thing. 4w

Soubhiville Great blog post! I also thought of non-binary folks and wondered how left out/ overlooked they were. One of my reading influences was my dad, who read me The Hobbit and bits of TLOTR, his favorite books. He also was a Winnie-the-Pooh fan. 4w
Soubhiville I wonder what the podcasters would think and how they would respond to our reactions to their opinions... 4w

This is a solid group of essays. Sure, they were written a bit ago. But, sadly, we are still dealing with the issues she writes about, and plenty have gotten worse since 2016. So they felt relevant for me, even though her featured events are old news. Her writing is readable, but her narration just so-so. I‘m anxious to listen to her podcast, Gaslit Nation though.

Pearson is exquisitely vulnerable throughout this book. She never shies away from telling the painful truths of her experience, even when it makes her look incompetent. As the book progresses, she gains so much knowledge and, yes, competence, that she ultimately seems almost too hard on herself. I applaud her ability to tell her unvarnished truths. Super medical memoir!

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I knew you‘d like this one! 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Riveted_Reader_Melissa For sure. It is exactly in my reading wheelhouse. 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Riveted_Reader_Melissa And I‘m glad I have the Kindle version—bought long before we picked this. BTW, did you see the Kindle SFF sale today? 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BarbaraTheBibliophage No, but I‘ll have to check it out. 1mo
Crazeedi @BarbaraTheBibliophage recently read *the shift* (which I saw you read), *12 patients*, *the butchering art*, *lab girl*, many many others I can't think of right now. Oh one about cancer made into a PBS documentary, what do you recommend? 1mo
Crazeedi @BarbaraTheBibliophage I also have shelves of herbal tomes, ayurvedic medicine, Chinese medicine, homeopathic, etc. I have studied on my own systems of healing. I did attend a conference with Deepak Chopra once. Just super interested in medicine. And botanicals and on and on, lol😉 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Crazeedi Oh we might be reading twinsies. I haven‘t read 12 Patients, but have read the other two you mentioned. I the PBS / book you mean is Emperor of all Maladies. I bailed on it—but only because it was due back at the library. Bought a copy since then, just need to get back to it.

BarbaraTheBibliophage @Crazeedi I‘m definitely more focused on medicine these days, but I‘ve read a ton of holistic books in the past too. 1mo
Crazeedi @BarbaraTheBibliophage that's a great idea, making a medical shelf, I need to organize my goodreads shelves too. Thanks! I'll tag you if I read/find any ones I enjoy. Have you read *Dr.Mutters Marvels*. I purchased after we toured the museum in Philly. Haven't read yet 1mo
Crazeedi Adored *when breath becomes air*, so good 1mo
Crazeedi @BarbaraTheBibliophage I also have *in the magic shop* my husband read and said very good, I haven't read yet. Ok I'll stop now! Lol 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Crazeedi I really want to got the Mutter, especially since I only live 90 min away. But it grosses Mr. B out so we haven‘t ... if you liked Breath Becomes Air, try this one 1mo

Well, I‘m almost finished with this so I thought I‘d let you know I‘ve been reading it. I‘ve been following her on Twitter for a while, and this is just as insightful, if significantly more dated.

Megabooks I agree! I enjoyed it, but it‘s hard to read political nonfiction more than about 9 months old and not find it dated. Still, I thought the essays were insightful. 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Megabooks I‘m actually finding the higher education essays to be the most interesting. I know a few people who are adjuncts. And our granddaughter is applying to colleges this year, aiming to major in French. I‘d like to pass these essays on to her and her parents, since (to me, anyway) they feel applicable to her life decisions. 1mo
Megabooks @BarbaraTheBibliophage Agreed. I had a friend who was an adjunct in the Communications department at UT and she had to be a sorority mom and teach yoga on the side to make ends meet. There‘s so much wrong with higher education in the US. 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Megabooks There sure is. Your friend probably didn‘t get insurance benefits either. So much wrong! 1mo

Take my last two reads, add them together, and you‘ve created this book. It‘s a post-pandemic adventure that has a magical element. Everyone‘s escaping the cities. Some people discover they have extra abilities—all those magical creatures are real now. If you‘ve survived The Doom. Sadly, prejudice and evil also survive. So good vs. evil, well told.

This is the library we visited today. Those stairs are cool! I‘ve been trying to find a birth certificate for my grandfather and thought the state archives in Annapolis, MD might help. Turns out they didn‘t have any information that I hadn‘t already accessed online. But I did get some ideas based on the conversations with the librarians and volunteers. And also now have a hard copy of my great-great-grandfather‘s death certificate.

Amiable How wonderful! Genealogy research finds like that give you such a rush, don‘t they? 1mo

I loved the author‘s earlier series. But after 3 books, I‘m giving up on this series. Tooooo many characters, which keeps me from caring about any of them enough. Or maybe his writing just isn‘t strong enough to draw me in. I‘ve felt this way for each book in this series. Enough is enough. But if you love Witches, New Orleans, and voodoo you may love this.

We went to see our eighth Cirque du Soliel show yesterday. It was a dazzler, as always. Called Amaluna, it celebrates the power of women. We took our four young granddaughters and college-age grandson. And then their parents and other grandma wanted to see the show too, so the whole family was there! I love how the show modeled female strength and flexibility. And p.s., I just bought a used copy of the tagged book. ♥️ Cirque!

A Piece of the World | Christina Baker Kline

Mehso-so

Christina Baker Kline opens the doors and invites us into the farmhouse in Andrew Wyeth‘s iconic painting, Christina‘s World. This fictional work offers readers a chance to understand the world of the rural Maine residents he painted. It‘s not about Wyeth very much, although Kline does imagine the relationship he had with Christina Olson and her family. It‘s a bit depressing, though.

Seriously. If you are #GF, this and the previous volume are must buy #cookbooks. Especially if you like to bake. The recipes include a few extra steps than their gluten versions, but is TOTALLY worth the effort. Everything turns out like a dream. These are ginger snaps for my #writinggroup. Hope we don‘t eat them all before Wednesday (when the meeting happens)! Plus #audiobaking. Win win win!

Sometimes I regret having accepted a book for review. I thought I‘d like this more, considering I often read politics and history. But it wasn‘t my kind of book. The writing was deadly dull.
