Goldfarb will make any reader a Beaver Believer with this lyrically written ode to our castorid cousins.

My runaway winner for 2018‘s beach read. Cleverly authentic, occasionally absurd, and flecked through with witty insights. I am nothing if not charmed.

Read this book to restore your faith in the potential of the democratic process.

This is the first book I‘ve read cover-to-cover in one sitting since Bridge to Terabithia. It made me cry almost as many times but, predictably, it made me LOL way more. #TeamXX

RebL I did this one on audio. So worth it. The Two Dope Queens podcast is also so worth it. 2y

“Democrats have to continue championing civil rights, human rights, and other issues that are part of our march toward a more perfect union. We shouldn‘t sacrifice our principles to pursue a shrinking pool of voters who look more to the past than the future.”

The Shadow of the Wind | Carlos Ruiz Zafon

'Not evil,' Fermín objected. 'Moronic, which isn't quite the same thing. Evil presupposes a moral decision, intention, and some forethought. A moron, or a lout, however, doesn't stop to think or reason. He acts on instinct, like an animal, convinced that he's doing good, that he's always right, and sanctimoniously proud to go around fucking up, if you'll excuse the French, anyone he perceives to be different from himself...'

What I wouldn't give to be back on that beach! Struggling to enjoy these brutally raw stories in the absence of Portuguese sunshine and the lapping Atlantic.

Bucket list book bought at a bucket list bookstore. Spoiler alert: it lives up to the hype.

To the Lighthouse | Virginia Woolf
post image

"To be silent; to be alone. All the being and the doing, expansive, glittering, vocal, evaporated; and one shrunk, with a sense of solemnity, to bring oneself, a wedge-shaped core of darkness, something invisible to others. Although she continued to knit, and sat upright, it was thus that she felt herself; and this self having shed its attachment was free for the strangest adventures."

Hope In The Dark | Rebecca Solnit
post image

"Hope locates itself in the premises that we don't know what will happen and that in the spaciousness of uncertainty is room to act. When you recognize uncertainty, you recognize that you may be able to influence the outcomes–you alone or you in concert with a few dozen or several million others. Hope is an embrace of the unknown and the unknowable, an alternative to the certainty of both optimists and pessimists."

A deeply disturbing account of a gruesome double murder that artfully widens the lens to consider the raw humanity of religious fundamentalism.

Utterly brilliant reimagining of the Victorian form. This is one of the few 900+ page novels that I intend to reread time and time again.
