librarygoddess619 I really enjoyed your review. A colleague and I were just talking about burial practices during Victorian times today. Did you know that they used to bury people with bells so that if they woke up, they could ring them? Fascinating! 3w

I‘ve decided to start a new series entitled “My Reading Life” where I interview people who I think are interesting about the books they love. This week I was able to interview Scott Santens, who is the Editor of Basic Income Today, and serves on the board of directors of both the Gerald Huff Fund for Humanity and also USBIG, Inc.
Check out the interview here:

CarolynM Great review, it made perfect sense to me. I liked the book too - I loved that you were finding out such a lot about the people the narrator met (in so far as what they said to her was true, and I had my doubts) but virtually nothing about the narrator. Cusk is a really interesting writer. I have to get around to the next one soon 2mo
Wellreadhead Thanks and same here. I need to finish the trilogy. I also want to read some of her nonfiction, which I have heard is really great as well. 2mo

#athinsliceofanxiety #bullshitjobs

Rebesta I tried to leave a comment on your blog review, but apparently I have some forgotten account there and couldn‘t resolve it before the comment disappeared. Anyway, that was a stellar review and commentary on the book. Much of it I have known for quite some time. I think I picked it up from reading The Beat writers and Bukowski. Then working in sales and marketing drove the point home. Marketing is perhaps the biggest bullshit job ever invented. 4mo
CouronneDhiver I have one of those 😆 4mo
Wellreadhead @Rebesta Thank you! I‘m also a big fan of Bukowski. 4mo

Book mail is by far the best kind of mail!
#athinsliceofanxiety #appalachia #jdvance #hillbillyelegy #bookmail

cathysaid Oh no 🤬 They‘re making Hillbilly Elegy into a movie? I just detest how Appalachia (and often, by association, the South) is depicted by the media. So much amazing art, culture and transcendent intelligence in the area not only goes unrecognized but is misrepresented and stereotyped and it just makes me so sad. (edited) 5mo
Scochrane26 @cathysaid I heard they‘re making a movie, too. I also loathe hillbilly elegy, I‘ve disliked it more & more since I read it. And I really want to read the book pictured. Several KY authors have been voicing their dislike of hillbilly elegy recently. 5mo
paulfrankspencer I'd be curious to read your review when you're done. @cathysaid @Scochrane26 what was so repugnant about HE? Just the stereotype? Although JD does make a number of generalizations, I found a majority of the book to be highly personal and anecdotal. Enough to connect with, but not so much that he's calling out everyone in the region. 5mo
Wellreadhead @paulfrankspencer I think one of the biggest criticisms of Vance is that he perpetuates the narrative that people in the Appalachian region are solely responsible for their problems and that he ignores the complex history of economic and cultural exploitation that has taken place there. 5mo
Scochrane26 @paulfrankspencer I liked the book as a family memoir, but then feel that he generalized to the rest of the culture. Plus, he didn‘t actually grow up in Appalachia. I think @Wellreadhead‘s comment sums up the criticism. 5mo

GreenReads Hello! I don't know him or his other book that you've mentioned in your review. Is it okay to start with this one? Also, does it delve in American politics too much or can non-Americans relate to this? 6mo
Wellreadhead @grayidlings If you‘re not familiar with him then this book would be a great place to start. It‘s not a political book at all really, at least it‘s not intended to be, so you shouldn‘t have any problems relating to it‘s content, thanks 6mo

Dwayne_Shugert Just curious...what app did you use to track your reading like this? 8mo
Wellreadhead @Dwayne_Shugert This graphic was made on Goodreads. I also use an app called Bookly to keep track of my reading, it allows you to keep notes, track reading time, and even has ambient background noises if you need them. 8mo
Dwayne_Shugert I thought it was Goodreads...but I can‘t seem to find how to do that. And I will look into Bookly as well. Thanks... 8mo
SmartSassery This is really cool. 7mo
jjmcgaffey The graphic is at https://www.goodreads.com/user/year_in_books/2018/ (once you're there, there's links to move by year, or edit the URL). Unfortunately since I _don't_ track on Goodreads (though I have an account), mine is essentially blank - I track on LibraryThing, but there's no clever graphics there. 5mo
