Hey Alexa, play “Don‘t You Forget About Me”. This being the title of chapter one, I had to listen to it! 😈🎃🖤

Is it just me, or does anyone else reserve a lot of books at the library, and they magically all become ready at the same time? Good thing my library has done away with late fees 😅

Biology is weird and inherited trauma is real. Nothing has soothed my anxiety and my frustrations with having anxiety and panic attacks quite like this book has. So far, we like.

I love that I figured out my library loans out coffee table books. This is a painting of my Ohio River, no wonder I was drawn to it! ☺️

Chelsea.Poole I live right on the Ohio River! Sometimes I forget to appreciate the amazing views. 8mo
rambiepaige @Chelsea.Poole oh that‘s awesome! My hometown is on the river and I used to stare out the window in high school and think about how much I‘d rather be swimming 😄 8mo

As I‘ve been reading this book and watching documentaries on this moment of history, it‘s resonating more and more with the last year here in the US. When I read this quote, I had instant chills.

Once I found out my library had copies on order, I placed a hold. I want to say I was 40th or so in line? I went to the library on Tuesday and found a copy on the shelf. I logged into my account, and I was still 16th in line. What luck!

Only through the prologue, and it already hits home. This book caught my eye because it seemed like a good read to exit 2020 and enter 2021. So far, so good. ❄️

Okay so, I love historical fiction about women in war time, especially when it brings in reality. I am so excited that this book mentions Virginia Hall. I‘ve been reading A Woman of No Importance (non fiction about Virginia) and just too happy to see her mentioned here! 😌

Eat A Peach: A Memoir | David Chang

Ever feel like you‘re looking a mirror when you read a certain paragraph or line? Working as a stock broker can be stressful in regular times, but since March it‘s been a true struggle. I‘ve gotten so stressed and depressed to the point where taking personal leave had to happen, and it physically hurt to slam the brakes. The last line really hit home.

I‘ve loved all of David Chang‘s shows and I was over the moon when I heard about this one. I was even more excited to know my library had a copy! Thanks so much, Baby King! 🍑 🧡

Nute I‘ve never read anything by this author, but I have heard a lot of good things about his writing. I‘m on my way to the bookstore...I think that I‘ll look for a book by him today. 14mo
rambiepaige @Nute you definitely should! I love his food shows on Netflix too. The way he approaches cooking is just so amazing to me. 14mo
Nute I‘ll connect that way as well! What is the name of his cooking show on Netflix? 14mo
rambiepaige @Nute Ugly Delicious and also Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner! Ugly Delicious really gives you some insight to the book as well. 14mo
Nute Got it! Thanks for all of the recommendations.👍🏽 14mo

Times have been really hard lately, and I‘ve spent more time crying and worrying than anything else. While working from home the rest of the year can be a blessing, it has also been extremely difficult. I picked up this little guy and the pictures alone in this book are already cheering me up.

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek | Kim Michele Richardson
post image

Growing up 10 minutes from the Ohio River, I spent a lot of time between both states. My family has history setting up a mission down in the hollers, I have friends from deep in the hills, and so I decided it was time to learn more once I moved across the river. What a fantastic book to help kick off my KY history reading list. 💙

Even though I missed International Women‘s Day, I figured I could celebrate all of March with this book. There‘s just something about stories of WWII era women I‘m drawn to! 👄💪🏼🦸🏼‍♀️

Kloves2read I want to read this! It‘s on my tbr list! 2y
rambiepaige @Kloves2read it‘s not bad!! I just read Radium Girls before it so I had to step back for a minute, but definitely worth it! The Alice Network is another good one if you like this type! 2y
Kloves2read There was another one that was similar but it was based on a entire family, rather than an individual. I can‘t recall the tittle and it‘s driving me nuts. I wanted to add it to my tbr list. 2y

Started it in December, but still counting it as my January read. This book is very well written, and it‘s crazy to think this all was only 100 years ago. Too close to home!

Blaire I thought this was really well done. I could see it appearing on law school reading lists. 2y
rambiepaige @Blaire I agree! I‘m hoping to find more books like this to read this year. 2y

If only I could say what this book/show/movement means to me. I went through a dark time in my mid 20s, and to remind myself how strong I am every morning, I had “nolite te bastardes carborundorum” tattooed on my leg. I‘ve waited for this sequel, and it was killing me to be at work knowing it was at home waiting for me! 💚
