Anna and the King of Siam | Margaret Landon
post image

Reading this during my trip to Thailand formerly known as Siam. That is the city of Bangkok where this book takes place. BTW this book is awesome. I learned so much about Thailand and life at the Grand Palace. Spoiler there was no love or romance between Anna and the King. Just friendship.

I met Tommy Orange last week when he came to our school Pow Wow. The part about the spider legs- he admits he pulled them out of his own leg. His dad said he was hexed and he put it in the story.

Started my travel reading. I‘m going to Cambodia in June and thought it was time to read this memoir. Incredible survival story.

Caterina I almost bought this on Monday at a used bookstore. Look forward to hearing what you think, I'm sure it will be a tough read. The Lutheran volunteer program that placed me in Palestine 2017-2018 also has volunteers in Cambodia, and those volunteers taught me a lot about Cambodia. Heartbreaking what the U.S. did to it, and heartbreaking that they lost free press last year. 4mo
Booksnob I have so much to learn about Cambodia. @Caterina Thanks for sharing this with me. The book is heartbreaking but also full of hope. 4mo

This book is so good and I‘m learning a ton of facts about jellyfish, so much so that I‘m going to be afraid of swimming in the ocean when I‘m in Thailand this summer. 1 in 46 people have been stung by a jellyfish. Have you?

This book is so good and I‘m learning a lot about evictions. My brother and his girlfriend is being evicted in one month and his girlfriend has attempted suicide twice since learning they will be homeless. It‘s very difficult to find affordable housing in the Twin Cities area. Being evicted creates a lot of stress and even I‘m feeling the effects of it and I‘m not being evicted. So hard.

Broken for You | Stephanie Kallos
post image

Today Laura is sporting two new lovely casts for your viewing pleasure. One is traditional and made from fiberglass in the adorable shade of ocean blue because she wishes she was spending all this time healing in a seaside city somewhere other than frigid Minnesota. On the left you will see a black leather zipper cast and here she is channeling her biker girl vibe or maybe even a medieval badass knight.
