This is such a sweet fantasy with beautiful characters full of optimism. “Change starts with the voices of a few.” An all around feel good kinda story ❤️

This audio kept me company on the drive to/from my parents for a Mother‘s Day visit. A steamy novella about a couple with a short past, stuck in an elevator in the building they work at.

This book is part memoir of the author‘s brief time working for the DC public library and part social economics. She covers a lot of what libraries do and have become, and it‘s all prevalent and true, but I wish she talked more about programs, events, community partners etc. My library system (between DC/Baltimore) does a great job of supporting staff and the community, and I wish more of these aspects were highlighted in the book. I ❤️ my job!

Graciouswarriorprincess I have this on hoopla. 2w
Cortg @Graciouswarriorprincess It was good! I‘m still debating about getting my MLIS. We can now become asst. branch managers at the smaller branches without one but I know I have a job if/when I finish and I‘m in it for the long run. She only made it in the job 9 months. Her branch is not for the faint of heart. 2w
Graciouswarriorprincess @Cortg What wonderful news!! I am 2 classes into my MLIS and probably 2 more years before I finish. I miss working for AACPL! 1w

Whew. This audiobook was like taking a whole college semester course on CRT. I will say it was extremely well done! I don‘t usually buy books but I‘m going to pick this up at a black owned book store in Baltimore in the near future and read through the chapters/essays/stories at a slower pace. So much to take in.

I love this song so I needed to check out Alicia Keys new book and I‘m so glad I did. A strong, female, teen heroine, with superpowers, yes please! For a short book, she did a nice job of including systematic racial problems within the pages which went well with the story. Great YA graphic novel, and the illustrations were fantastic!

Cortg @Cinfhen I agree with @squirrelbrain you‘d probably enjoy this book. It‘s on the lighter side and each chapter is kinda the POV of someone different in Eva‘s circle for whatever reason, big or small. Some intertwine with others but not all if that makes sense. (edited) 1mo

The Deep | Rivers Solomon, Daveed Diggs, William Hutson, Jonathan Snipes
post image
Pickpick

This is like a modern day myth. Originating from an album by Drexciya, ‘Journey of the Deep Sea Dweller‘, it evolved into a song by Clipper, then written in lyrical words into a novella unlike anything I‘ve read before. Extremely creative and quite sorrowful, it‘s the story of mermaid-like sea creatures born from the birth of pregnant slave women thrown overboard during the slave trades and the historian that holds the memories.

I‘m not usually a romcom kinda gal but I keep seeing this and thought, why not?! It was cute, the characters were a bit annoying but it made for an enjoyable listen and I thought of my daughter a lot as she‘s thinking of going for a PhD in the STEM field. I hear it‘s a tough environment, especially for women, and I like that the author added some support websites for women in STEM at the end.

BarbaraBB I keep seeing this book everywhere too! 2mo
Cortg @BarbaraBB There‘s definitely some cheesiness and a very detailed sex scene but overall, it was what I needed; something light and entertaining. I think the STEM aspect drew me towards it. 2mo
BarbaraBB I need a book for #pop22 ‘character on the ace spectrum‘ and am thinking to use it for that prompt. You can too 😄 2mo

This book covers the Sandy Hook shooting, but it also focuses on the conspiracy theories and highlighting the viral spread of misinformation on the internet, calling out social media platforms and people like Alex Jones of InfoWars.

I‘m giving this a pick though I don‘t think I‘d recommend it unless they‘re big readers. The first two stories felt incomplete and it kinda frustrated me and I wanted a bigger, dramatic ending to wrap the timelines up and I knew it wasn‘t going to happen. I really enjoyed the third story. I like what she did with the timelines, characters, generations, altered universe, and it‘s a book to ponder for a while so I‘ll give it that. #pop22 #booked22

I think this will be our July graphic novel choice for the grades 4-6 book club this summer. It takes place on Martha‘s Vineyard. A movie is being filmed on the island and there‘s a film fest for kids. An unlikely group forms to create a documentary about the history of a retired sea captain and the history of the island as they interview the “islanders” and form a friendship bond with plenty of bumps along the way.

Perfect read for our grades 4-6 summer book club at the library that fits our ocean theme and diversity.

When her teacher shows the class a video about a whale whose song isn‘t in line with other whales and can‘t communicate, Iris decides to try to help the whale, with help from her grandmother!

I enjoyed listening about the Padillo family. There are three POV‘s; Yolanda, her son Amadeo, and his daughter Angel. Their lives are complicated and honestly, all three of them kinda pissed me off with their choices. At times I thought, are people really this bad at getting through life, then thought, if I was in their situation, would I choose or adult any better? I have empathy for most of the characters, and a final happiness for the Padillo‘s

I thought the book had some good messages about the importance of voting and fighting to let your voice be heard. I just kinda went with the flow with this one. 2mo

I graduated high school, college and got married all in the 90‘s! It‘s amazing to think how culture and technology has evolved since then, including our perception and thinking as people.

This biography is written in verse and will appeal to any music lover, ages 7 and up (it‘s on the longer side.)

Rebecca Hall left the NYC to pursue a law degree from Berkeley and became a tenant‘s rights attorney. To better help her clients and understand the justice system, she went back to school to earn a PhD in history focusing on slavery. From this, her story was found and written; the stories of slave women who led revolts. This is a power graphic novel exploring women and slavery. The graphics are pretty amazing as well!

Whew! 29+ hour listen covering his family‘s immigration to America and finishing with his decision to run for president. This is Part 1 of 2 books. I enjoyed learning about who JFK was; his childhood, into adolescence, into an adult, war hero and his political career. I also liked the rosy and not so rosy parts of his life that are highlighted, not just all the love for this complicated president and ladies man. Now to wait for book 2.

Loved this one and can‘t wait for book club to discuss! It‘s long, too long for some, but I love really getting to know the characters, though most were rich snobs, there were plenty of layers to peel and they were nitty gritty.

This is one that I‘ll be thinking about for a long time. #pop22 ~ A book set in the 1980‘s
