Men Explain Things to Me | Rebecca Solnit

I tried to read this before my recent hysterectomy and couldn‘t get past the 3rd page because my Mirena IUD turned me into a hormone monster. During recovery I listened to the e-book while cross-stitching. It was so validating and infuriating all at the same time. I‘ve been telling every woman I know that she needs this book in her life.

Third book in this series and I find out he plays Ripley in an adaptation of it. I love Patricia Highsmith‘s books. If you haven‘t read her and love thrillers I highly recommend her work.

The title caught my eye but the story has sucked me in. The contrast of beauty and oppression in so many traditional cultures is a theme that has fascinated me since living in South Korea for 6 years. Coming from a grey (boring) city in Ontario I was jealous of them, but as the saying goes- Their rice cake always looks bigger than yours (The grass is always greener).

Had to share this here.

Samplergal Hysterical! Working in elementary schools much of my career, I remember one school where a random grandmother came in from off the street. She saw the sign and came in and eventually bought $75 of books for her grands. She was disappointed she couldn‘t get adult books! #booklover 2y

Not really reading this, just seemed appropriate. This was thrown on the road about 15 feet from the trash/recycling cans of a Tim Hortons. Litter usually bothers me but this one made me think for a while about the story behind this eyesore...

I like to share the literary tattoos I do

TieDyeDude Tattoo question: I'm planning a literary tattoo, but I want some design input from whichever artist I choose. If I were to approach someone and we couldn't work out something I liked, would I be expected to pay for their time? I've drawn my other tattoos myself, so this is one will be different 2y
Tamarity @GoodForCirculation, good question. I would recommend looking at artist‘s portfolios in your area and find someone with a style you like (similar to what you want). Different shops have different policies but we only charge for actual tattoo time, on the rare occasion you don‘t like what is drawn up and can‘t agree on a design we sit you down with another artist. But again you only pay for getting tattooed. Shops may vary...call around:) (edited) 2y
TieDyeDude Great, thanks. There are two artists in different shops I'm looking at. I'll make sure to study their portfolios before deciding. 2y
Tamarity @GoodForCirculation also bring bunches of sample pics/drawings etc of what you want. Contrary to popular belief we can not read minds. 2y
TieDyeDude Ha, understood 2y

Tamarity @ForeverNerdy I just started it a few days ago! Loving it so far. Have you read Strangers on a Train (one of my favourite movies) or The Blunderer? (edited) 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I have read it & enjoyed it. I haven‘t seen the movie yet. I haven‘t read The Blunderer, haven‘t heard of that one must go check it out. I believe she wrote one called Edith‘s Diary that‘s another one I can‘t wait to read. 2y
Shortstack I'm reading Strangers on a Train right now and it's so unsettling! Great build of tension there as well! She's one of my new favorite writers. I've only read the first Ripley. 2y

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie

My second Agatha Christie book and I really liked it, I had an old copy called Ten little Indians, I guess they had to update...I googled it to be sure I wasn‘t making this up and found (on Wikipedia ) it was originally published as ‘‘ten little n*****s” *Jaw dropppppp*
I hear lots of people talk about censoring Mark Twain, that it‘s worse than keeping the original historic reality of things...what about this?
Thoughts?

Mariposa_Bookworm I think it's important to maintain the historical accuracy even if it is offensive. We need to remember that these behaviors existed in hopes that one day humans will stop repeating it. 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 @Mariposa_Bookworm I totally agree with you. 2y
Tamarity @Mariposa_Bookworm @ForeverNerdy, It is Christie's best-selling novel; with more than 100 million copies sold, it is also the world's best-selling mystery and one of the best-selling books of all time. Publications International lists the novel as the seventh best-selling title.[7]” “It was first published in the United Kingdom by the Collins Crime Club on 6 November 1939, as Ten Little Niggers.” Should it be on bookshelves like that? (edited) 2y
Mariposa_Bookworm Yes. Just like some of the racist remarks one of the characters makes about indigenous African tribes shouldn't be left out. 2y
