Just before reading this, my doctor told me to stop eating cheese. I've already given up beer. So not cool.

rretzler I need to read this - great analogies of depression. 5mo

mandarchy @rretzler I read the Collected Schizophrenias and this book was referenced. Sounded interesting. Turns out it's hysterical. I've never laughed so hard at a book. 5mo

Slogged through the Picture of Dorian Gray while wait listed at the library for Ghost. My reward: finished Dorian last night. Ghost came in this morning. Sweet reading!

I love Thyra Heder's books. Alfie makes a perspective change mid book and makes one consider our responsibilities toward our pets and empathy for animals. Nominated for the 2018 Washington children's choice picture book award.

Nominated for the 2019 Washington children's choice picture book award. Kids will love the little heroic horse in war time.

More about kindness than sharks, but also an opportunity to compare sea predators. Teachers and parents may find many uses for this book and kids will easily relate to it.

Inspired by the PBS great American read this summer. I splurged at the thrift store. So much to read and so little time!

I loved it, but my son asked me to stop using my yelling voice. I wasn't yelling, it was my dramatic voice. Correct tag not available yet. So tagged another fabulous book by the same author.

Jeannie Are you still in or near Tacoma? I think there‘s going to be a Litsy meet-up in Tacoma later this year for PNW folks, if you‘re interested. 1y
mandarchy I am. I just now saw this comment. Not sure why I didn't see it sooner. When things get hammered out will there be like a Facebook event? So I make sure not to miss it? 1y
