I didn't choose this anthology for the cover, but I do love it.

I've been having trouble focusing lately, and have been reading a LOT of short stories as a result

How to Be an Antiracist | Ibram X. Kendi
post image

"The claim of “not racist” neutrality is a mask for racism...it‘s important...that we...return the word “racist”...back to its proper usage. “Racist” is not—as Richard Spencer argues—a pejorative...it is not...a slur...the only way to undo racism is to consistently identify & describe it— then dismantle it. The attempt to turn this usefully descriptive term into an almost unusable slur is...designed to do the opposite: to freeze us into inaction."

EchoCharlie I had to edit it so badly because if the text limit :( 2y

No escapism for me, apparently.

"Justice is expensive, that's why there's so little of it...there is a limit to the evil one despot alone can do, and if he is truly vicious he may be overthrown; a hundred corrupt members of Parliament may together do as much injustice or more, and be the less easy to uproot."

I've had this book for years and haven't read it yet, even though I knew I'd love it.

This line is a great reminder of how much of women's history is oral. A woman's hands were always supposed to be busy doing the "menial" housework, but they were so often family historians, artisans, and experts in medicine.

I grew up loving the work of Ray Harryhausen, so I am SO excited for this book. Especially after this intro:
"It's so difficult to be something if you cannot envision it. To see no way in, to see the world you love populated exclusively with those who are not like you is devastating."

Celebrating #NationalPoetryMonth right before it ends. Edna St. Vincent Millay has been my favorite poet since high school, so I am throughly enjoying her biography (with blueberry muffins, in honor of her New England childhood)

It took me awhile to get into this sequel, just because it was very heavy on navy and ship settings (this is why it took me so long to get this series in the first place). But they're back on land and discussing aviation again.

Mulan, featuring actual dragons.
