A little Friday night inspiration. Most sticky for me: “Be grateful for what you have AND demand what you deserve” and “Failure means you‘re finally IN the game.”

A great graphic novel with a serious discussion about race and immigration, but also with some giggles.

Mehso-so

Blah. He tells many semi-entertaining stories about running and complains much about his divorce/ex-wife. I kind of see why he was divorced.

I AM, I AM, I AM by Maggie O'Farrell--a fascinating collection of essays about the author's near-death encounters, written in a way that sparkles, like the feather on the cover.

monalyisha I‘m very interested in this book! 🤗 2y

Sherlock Holmes is better as a woman and with a cat. This is the second book in an amazing series and the cat is featured only outside of the story.

Beautifully written book about Germans, especially German women, during and after the World War II. It's about national guilt and responsibility and personal capacity to live and feel connection with other people in spite of the darkest of evils. And, with their themes of spreading nationalism and fascism, the story feels unfortunate in its relevance to current times.

Suet624 This review nailed it. 2y

Stories within stories. Rich language. Big feeling. Messed-up characters. A story about creating, being yourself, and being happy.

A fictional story of Thoreau, Emerson, and mostly Samuel Lock, an escaped slave living next to the Walden Pond. Racism, privilege, and the meaning of freedom, or even the meaning of life.

When was the last time you read a book by and about a Czech, let alone a Czech in space? I'm slightly in love with this book. 😍📚Philosophical, lyrical, political, humorous, and a bit cynical. Sooo good!

ruskigurl16 Ugh. I need to get to this book soon. It sounds wonderful!! 3y
