This is a good story of a boy with a unique eye condition and the challenges he faced as he grew, but it's also a touching story of deep and lasting friendship, and fierce support from those friends and his family. There are some descriptions of bullying and violence, and I wish I had known that before picking it up. I'm still glad I read it, but that awareness will be part of any recommendation I make.

This is really interesting, but not easy to listen to.

avgeyer I haven't read this one yet, but I recommend Dreamland by Sam Quinones- a really interesting look at how the drug companies and drug cartels collided to create the crisis we have now, particularly in Appalachia. 4w
Scochrane26 I just downloaded this. 4w
goodbyefrancie @avgeyer I have added that one to my list. This book mentions Dreamland, too. 4w

goodbyefrancie @JanuarieTimewalker13 @erinreads This is a 1940s book, but I believe the dust cover is a reproduction. I have several different versions of the book, so this a great addition, even with a replacement cover. 1mo

A four-day weekend with absolutely no plans, and for two of those days, I'll have the house completely to myself. Considering taking on the tagged book.

Just finished this one on #Overdrive and I will be buying the hardcover. I seriously want to buy a ton of copies and give them to everyone I know. There is so much to be learned here, and it's such an important book. Melinda Gates knocked this one out of the park, and gets to the deepest parts of empathy, compassion, understanding, equality, and explains in an indisputable way how inequality impacts every aspect of life. Go get this book. Now.

Sometimes, the right book finds you. Nearly four years ago, my family suffered a loss that literally took our breath and, to this day, still often makes it difficult to function. The healing, if it is to be, is far away and a painful journey. Ann Hood's story of the sudden loss of her daughter describes grief in a way that makes you cry "Yes, this is it exactly!". If you or someone you know are wading through grief, I can't recommend this enough.

Bibliogeekery Great review! Sorry for your loss! 5mo
avgeyer My dad passed away on valentine's day this year and every day is still hard. Thanks for recommending this, I will definitely check it out. Sorry for your loss ❤ 5mo

Excellent story! Mayor Pete is a smart guy, and he tells his story in a great way - very down to earth, very intelligent, very analytical. Even if he weren't a presidential candidate, this is a book I would have read and enjoyed. He just seems like a good guy who would be great to visit with over lunch. I'll be watching him, for sure.

He also reads the audio.

How Democracies Die | Steven Levitsky, Daniel Ziblatt
post image
Pickpick

Those who will read this are already aware of the signs, but this book gives a factual education and comparison of the ways damage is done to the Democratic system. Looking back historically, the book illuminates the hazards we face, the ways things could/should have been addressed, and what we can do now. I recommend it to everyone, but am completely aware that those who need to understand the most will likely never touch it.

Opinions | C. E. M. Joad

The question came up as I saw a different Litsy post, but I thought I'd ask for more opinions. For those of you who listen to audio books through library services, do you prefer #Overdrive or #Libby, and what are the good and bad of each? I have only ever used Overdrive, but am curious about Libby. *Photo is part of my home library, because I obviously need more books. 🤷‍♀️

Jennick2004 Wow!!!! 6mo
Lcsmcat I find Libby‘s controls require fewer steps, which makes it easy to use in my car. 6mo

Melissa_J Beautiful! One can never have too many books 😉 6mo
whatsthEStorey I prefer Libby to Overdrive. It feels easier to use to me. I like Hoopla as well, but Libby gives you more control over speed-sometimes I just want 1.85x, not 2x- and over the sleep timer setting. 6mo
JamieArc I use Libby and just prefer it over Overdrive because of its design. I also use Hoopla when I want a book immediately (no waits on Hoopla, but doesn‘t always have what I want). 6mo

I woke up early this morning, thinking I would have most of the day to sit and read. I was just sitting down when a cork flew out of one of the bottles in our wine rack (who knew that could happen??), flooding the kitchen. 🤦‍♀️🍷 I just spent the last two hours cleaning wine off of everything and mopping floors. My house smells like wine and Pine-Sol, and the cats are mad because they can't get in the kitchen until it dries. Break time for me.

cariashley Wtf?! Was it an old bottle?? I have a LOT of wine in my apartment and have my fingers crossed that never happens here! 🙅🏼‍♀️ 6mo

Daisey I‘m cautious about this kind of thing and have had it happen with homemade wine because of bottling before fermentation is fully complete combined with temperature changes, but I‘ve never worried about it with purchased wine. I can definitely commiserate about the mess it makes! 6mo

I finished this one on audio a couple of days ago. I read Nickel and Dimes several years ago (and I think everyone should). I think Maid has threads of that type of book running through it, but just doesn't feel the same. It's true that it's an inside look at the struggles of living and making a life, the challenges of a system that too often fails, but doesn't have the same impact. Still important, still a pick, not the same punch. #Overdrive

Reviewsbylola This definitely didn‘t feel as broad as Dimed but I really connected with the author‘s personal storyline. 7mo

goodbyefrancie @GingerAntics The call themselves a "church", but they are horrible people. I try to never use their name because I don't want them to get any more press. They are the group that protests at funerals of soldiers, or people of the LGBTQ community, or anyone who supports them. Just horrid and nasty people. I've seen them in action three times, and they have kids as young as 5 or 6 carrying signs with that verbal vomit. Should be child abuse. 7mo
GingerAntics Oh I know who you‘re talking about. I didn‘t know they were from Topica. I actually watched a documentary about them after another of the daughters defected and did a TEDtalk about ending hatred. I‘d never heard for them before that. 7mo
