I appreciated this book‘s approach to making your home functional instead of spotless and rhythms over routines. A cleaning book that actually contemplates busy lives, anxiety, and being overwhelmed. Took away some helpful tips about prioritizing and tidying and the comfort that it‘s ok to give yourself a break.

Cathythoughts Definitely stacking. I need a few tips like that 👍🏻😁 1w

In the wake of all the upsetting news this week I need a book to take me away and not keep me up at night. This was perfect. It captured the beauty of the all the national parks and the stories behind them as well as a good road trip telling.

It‘s been forever since I‘ve posted…reading this for my office book club and definitely recommend as an easy read to understand the constitution and how it‘s principles and interpretation have impacted Black people. Written with humour and in a way you don‘t need to be a lawyer to get (even tho I am a lawyer).

I read this slowly to absorb it. The parts of policy that I already knew were pulled together to show how completely racism infects all facets of American society and how old policies continue to have disparate impact. She shows how many white people see progress for people of color as a zero sum game and how white people would often choose to lose an advantage - like closing public pools and schools rather than allow Black people access.

Blaire She also provides some solutions to these problems and policy changes and approaches so that Americans will see the advantages of a diversity society and working across color lines. She shares specific stories of this working to demonstrate. Very informative and well -written. 6mo

Men Explain Things to Me | Rebecca Solnit

Pick because I think some of my lack of enthusiasm is because I read these all in one sitting in a bout of insomnia. Some of the essays felt repetitive referencing each other and citing the same studies. However the takeaway- that society doesn‘t talk about violence against women and violence in general as gendered phenomena is important and that not enough attention is put on how to change men‘s behavior and societal expectations of men

4.5 but rounding up because my son loves it so much. Beautifully told story of a Deaf girl who has a talent for fixing radios and goes on a quest to meet a whale whose song other whales either cannot hear or cannot understand. My son connected with it deeply as his sister is nonverbal and also communicates in a way others cannot understand.

This book took me from wheels up to wheels down Denver to Pittsburgh. Aside from a mystery it also got into what life was like for a Black man in Los Angeles in the 40s including issues of police brutality and systemic racism that felt very current. Glad I made time to read this classic of political corruption, murder, and lust in 1948 la.

I found the central tension in this novel to build throughout and I was continually surprised by where it went. There was an intensity to the friendship of Konrad and the General and the discussion of how their relationship formed and matured bore fruit later in the book. A lot packed into a short book. In a lot of ways it also reminded me of classic mysteries. Liked this much more than I expected. I think this is one you either love or hate.

Libby1 I loved it, too! 7mo
Blaire @Libby1 were discussing it with my family at book club this afternoon and I think we‘re split on it‘ll be an interesting discussion. I liked the slow burn nature of it. 7mo

Smith visits Monticello, a confederate burial site, Angola prison, and the Whitney plantation among other places to look at how enslavement impacts our history and present day. I found the Angola section to be particularly powerful and visceral. The epilogue about his own family made the whole book feel very personal. Highly recommend. And my 100th book of the year. ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I switched to this audiobook bc the one I was listening to was way too stressful. This was the right antidote., Made me think more deeply about how to craft my at home yoga practice, that yoga music can and the importance of breath and meditation. I liked how she wove her personal experience as a black woman in a mostly white space and how that impacted her yoga journey and current practice. Listened while enjoying fall colors.

I found this really fascinating, and the afterward is worth reading about how the project evolved from mostly instruments music to song to novella. It takes one of the horrors of enslavement - pregnant women thrown overboard from slave ships - and imagines a world where the children survive as a sea people. The study of collective trauma and memory and how to handle as an individual and community was really powerful.

Thoughtful novel about artificial intelligence, the emotional capacity of an AF (artificial friend), what makes a person who they are, and the quandaries of genetic engineering. Klara is an AF and as the novel unfolds we see how she perceives the world and how she learns emotions through observation and how her beliefs are formed. Beautifully written. (Perfect paired with an Amtrak ride and banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery.)

Disclaimer: this book is written by a friend of mine who is the host of a wonderful podcast - death, sex, and money. A fast read in which I could clearly hear Anna‘s voice. It was interesting to learn from her experience about what works in how to listen and to how to discuss difficult topics. Knowing so many of the people in the book definitely added to the reading experience.

Told by a west point historian who grew up in Virginia and Georgia revering Lee, he takes a military historian‘s eye to Lee‘s legacy and confronts his own past as someone who held Lee up as a hero. Good perspective on how the civil war used to be taught, and shines a light on origins of confederate monuments, the myth of Lee, and southern military officials who chose to stay loyal to the union.

When I finished I wanted to learn the author‘s background as the characters and setting felt so authentic and clearly drawn. Living in WV, I have seen similar devastation and desperation in former coal towns. It felt so visceral and the characters‘ struggles were complex - I particularly thought it was strong in intertwining circumstances with outcome and showing how an addictive cycle can continue. Brutal in many parts. Palate cleanser up next.

How I wanted to love this book, but I needed more well-developed characters. The start with the heat wave in India pulled me in but then it lost steam and felt like reading general theories on addressing climate change with interludes of Mary‘s story. Parts of it made me think but the style was not for me.

Reggie When he killed the guy off in Antarctica I laughed because I think he thought Oh the readers will be sad. But we hardly knew the guy. I don‘t think he married the fiction and the nonfiction part of this story all that well. 13mo

Overarching themes of what free will means, morality, and truth. I think anyone who liked The Good Place would find themselves pulled in to these stories.

Unpopular opinion. I wanted to love this but in the end it did not work for me. The first part where each character was introduced was the strongest and those short stories were beautiful, but as it moved into the long section it was too rambling and not compelling to me. The end didn‘t make sense given various statutes of limitations, I had a hard time suspending disbelief.

Ruthiella I totally agree with you! I‘m glad to have read it, however, because it was a message I needed to hear about the importance of trees environmentally. 1y
Blaire @Ruthiella completely. A lot of what I‘ve learned about trees was encompassed here, I just wish the middle part of the book had been edited differently. I‘ve started this book which is a lot like what is described by Westerford. 1y

Reading a book about a worse pandemic in the middle of a pandemic was disconcerting at times. The epidemic of blindness and how humanity reacts and survives was moving and disturbing. The long unbroken narrative with shifting perspectives worked and heightened the sense of not knowing what was happening and why and how long it would last. The descriptions of the smells and deteriorating conditions and brutality were visceral.

Trigger warning: sexual abuse. I listened to this book which is done by a full cast and I think it really added to the story. It is told in alternating chapters by Sadie and a podcast host of a true-crime podcast investigating her disappearance. Sadie takes off after her sister is murdered in search of the man she thinks killed her. If you listen to true crime podcasts those chapters hit all the tropes of that genre. #audiobook

Fun rom-com set in Los Angeles and centered around a woman who works at an independent bookstore. Nothing particularly surprising, but a nice comfort read, with a sense of place and appreciation for people who love to read and how it‘s fine to center reading in one‘s life. It was predictable but that didn‘t bother me since it goes with the genre. 3.5 ⭐️
