Book 65 for the 2018 Reading Challenge! Confession: I’ve owned this book for many years. Yes! A real, actual, physical book! I have a lot of them even though it seems that I spend much time listening to audiobooks, I DO enjoy the feel and smell of a paper book. And, this is one of them. I was interested in this book because it’s a compilation of Mary Boykin Chestnut’s journals from beginning to the end of the Civil War. She grew up in a privileged family, married into money and privilege, and so her journals offer a glimpse at what life was like for someone of that status in the Confederacy. I was also interested in what she expressed about slavery, because she was an advocate for abolition, though not an active participant. It also appears that her family treated their slaves well as after emancipation, the majority chose to stay on the land and continue to work for the family though the Chestnut’s stated that they were free to leave. But, that’s another subject for another day. This book is not an easy read - there are numerous footnotes and quite a bit of French. If you’ve long-forgotten most of the two years of French you took in high school like I have, you may be doing just as much translation of all of the French contained within the pages. So, footnotes, French… if you’re not a history fan and find all the looking up and going back-and-forth tedious - this may not be the best book for your reading pleasure. The Civil War was brought about for many reasons in addition to the big one - slavery. Deep chasms in the fundamental beliefs of the populace fueled the anger until it boiled over into families, friends, and neighbors, picking a side and a system of beliefs for which they were willing to sacrifice everything. But, I think it behooves us to be very careful of who we choose to follow, because those we leave behind are impacted by the results. “Brutal men with unlimited power are the same all over the world.” Mary Boykin Chesnut #book #books #read #readabook #readeveryday #audiobook #audiobooks #2018ReadingChallenge #goodread #goodreads #readeverything #LearnSomethingNew #FightIgnorance #ReadAllTheThings #listenwhileyouplay
Kids are never too young to discover a great book!
Book 64 in the 2018 Reading Challenge! “Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty” is… accurate. Not that it’s a terrible book - but, it’s just so damned gossipy! And, frankly, boring. Underwhelming. And, I pretty much lost interest in what Diane Keaton was prattling on about shortly after hitting play on the audiobook, which is a shame because I enjoy her acting. I also enjoy her shameless sense of self when it comes to what she wears, including her love of hats. But, I really can’t say much to redeem this book in my eyes. I spent seven hours, or thereabouts, listening to this and… well, I finished it. And, there is even an appropriate quote to go with that last line: “We’re all just trying to get through the day.” ― Diane Keaton, Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty #book #books #read #readabook #readeveryday #audiobook #audiobooks #2018ReadingChallenge #goodread #goodreads #readeverything #LearnSomethingNew #FightIgnorance #ReadAllTheThings #listenwhileyouplay #listenwhilyyouwork #listenwhileyoudrive #listenwhileyoufly #supportyourlocallibrary #InstabookReview #BookReview #BookReport
Book 63 in the 2018 Reading Challenge! You know… sometimes I “have the dumb”. I’m not alone in that because we ALL get “the dumb” from time to time, but we can lessen the occurrences of “the dumb” happening when we teach ourselves how to spot “the dumb” in its early stages. At a previous job, I worked with a lot of therapists and psychologists from whom I gleaned a whole lot of knowledge about human brain development and brain and behavioral science. These subjects are incredibly fascinating to me, and while I don’t really want to go to school to be a psychologist - I still enjoy a good brain science book to help me learn to spot “the dumb”, or, if you want to be more scientific about it, spotting my “thinking errors”. The author of “The Art of Thinking Clearly”, Rolf Dobelli, a novelist, also enjoyed reading about brain science and unwittingly became somewhat of an authority on thinking errors. That’s how this book came about and there is a lot of information, but all of it is worthy of consideration. One of the quotes that is particularly important is that we all understand the following: “Whether we like it or not, we are puppets of our emotions. We make complex decisions by consulting our feelings, not our thoughts. Against our best intentions, we substitute the question, “What do I think about this?” with “How do I feel about this?” So, smile! Your future depends on it.” ― Rolf Dobelli, The Art of Thinking Clearly Now that you know that even the most logical and rational among us are still emotional beasts, but that we can learn to recognize when we’re about to be a puppet to our emotions (because we read the book, right?!), we can help throw down the spike strips of “the dumb” when it comes barreling our way. PS - this book NEEDS to be added to the home library, because sometimes I just need a refresher on what “the dumb” looks like. #book #books #read #readabook #readeveryday #audiobook #audiobooks #2018ReadingChallenge #goodread #goodreads #readeverything #LearnSomethingNew #FightIgnorance #ReadAllTheThings #listenwhileyouplay #listenwhilyyouwork #listenwhileyoudrive #listenwhileyoufly #supportyourlocallibrary #InstabookReview

What does this mean to you? - This video can mean multiple different things to everyone who watches it. - One thing that sticks out to me is that you must be apart of something that is bigger than yourself. - You never know what it can become. You never know what will happen if you just start. You never know what kind of success those tiny habits, will compound to be. - Everyone at some point had to start somewhere. But as you can see once you get going, it all starts to gain momentum. - Then.. you can't be stopped. - Even the best in the world had to start somewhere. - Start working towards those goals that you have. - Don't let anything or anyone stand in the way of what you want to do. - This is your life, you need to take advantage of the time you have been given. - Change is difficult.. - But there must be change before than can be any real breakthrough. . . . #inspireothers #thinkandgrowrich #motivating #mindsetiseverything #doyourbest #momentum #alwayslearning #hustler #read #insights #compound #changeyourmind #changeyourlife #readeveryday #workhard #5am

Nĭ hăo everyone, and happy New Zealand Chinese Language Week. ‘A Thin Slice of Heaven is an historical novel recounting the adventures of the author's great-grandfather, Ng Leung Kee, who migrated to New Zealand in 1880 and set up a successful Chinese merchant business in Wellington. Ng Leung Kee returned to Tiansum, China in 1922, to take his grandson Leslie to receive a Chinese education. They faced significant challenges, including the kidnapping of Leslie by bandits, during a period of tumultuous political, economic and social conditions in China.’ #nzchineselanguageweek2018 #localbookstore #karori #marsden #wellington #wellingtonnz #supportlocalbusiness #athinsliceofheaven #readeveryday #whywellington #marsdenbooks #reading #welovereading #nzchineselanguageweek #booklovers #bookstagram #lovebooks #igbooks #igreads #booksofinstagram #theyearinbooks #ofquietmoments #theslowdowncollective #calmversation #china #indiebookstore #booksmagazine #booknerd #bookworm
I cannot get enough of @lizapalmer ’s books and you guys need to get BUSY and find them yourselves. Her stories are relatable, witty, expertly woven, and if you don’t tear up a time or two, then you must get to the Wizard for a heart immediately. Rarely do I find a writer whose work whispers directly into my ear like these books do. ❤️📚🙌🏻 #lizapalmer #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #writing #books #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookaddict #booklover #bookadventure #bibliophile #womensfiction #comedy #contemporaryfiction #readeveryday #booksarelife #harpercollins #williammorrowbooks #flatironbooks #hodderbooks

Buonasera amati lettori❤ ed eccoci in autunno, una stagione che odio per il fatto che è simbolo di un'estate terminata, momento di pace e svago assoluto, ma la amo profondamente per gli splendidi colori che la natura offre, le giornate ancora non troppo calde e non troppo fredde, Halloween e i misteri che si porta dietro... È comunque una stagione che mi affascina molto🍃🎃🎃🎃 • • • Oggi voglio inaugurare una nuova sorta di "rubrica" che ho pensato di chiamare #librosamenteacculturandoci in cui vorrei parlarvi di molte curiosità riguardanti sia il mondo dell'editoria che degli autori piuttosto che la critica o la storia che sta dietro a tante cose che ignoriamo • Come prima puntata (se così possiamo definirla) ho voluto argomentare "I Best Seller che fecero la storia" • 📚 Il primo best seller moderno può essere considerato "Via col vento" di Margaret Mitchell. L’autrice ottenne un anticipo di meno di 500 dollari, il 10% di utile sulle prime 10.000 copie vendute e il 15% sul resto; la Mitchell e il suo agente si auguravano, senza sperarci troppo, che l’editore riuscisse a vendere almeno 500 copie: invece nel 1936 fu il primo libro a vendere più di un milione di copie in un solo anno (un secolo prima, La capanna dello zio Tom si era fermato a 300.000)⭐ • 📚 In Italia i primi libri a superare in tempi brevi le 100.000 copie sono stati " Il Gattopardo" di Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa nel 1958, "La ragazza di Bube" di Carlo Cassola nel 1960 e "Il giardino dei Finzi Contini" di Giorgio Bassani nel 1962. Per superare il milione di copie, è stato necessario attendere un giornalista-scrittore come Oriana Fallaci, con "Lettera a un bambino mai nato" (1975). L’anno successivo fu la volta del «best seller alternativo» "Porci con le ali" scritto da Marco Lombardo Radice e Lidia Ravera, subito sequestrato e dissequestrato dalla magistratura.⭐ • 📚 Il prototipo di quello che Vittorio Spinazzola definisce «best seller di qualità» è "Il nome della rosa" di Umberto Eco, uscito nel 1980 con una prima tiratura di 80.000 copie e venduto nel giro di pochi anni in milioni di esemplari nel mondo intero. ••••••• {Continuo sotto}

It's Comic Book Day! Do you have a fan? My daughter has just started letting me read her comics and graphic novels. We have been having a blast reading these together, so many wonderful stories and art out there. We especially are loving comics for airplane and car rides, tons of stories in very small books 😉 Mickey Mouse has been such a fun blast from the past! Usborne has many graphic novels to introduce classic stories in an appealing way, and many activity books to start your readers creating their own comics! Do you know a young one who would gobble these up?#comicday

✨Tip Tuesday: Mindset shift helps improve your health and happiness.✨ . Shifting my mindset has helped me in so many ways! One of the most amazing things that have made me so much more aware of who I am, where I want to be, and how to give me not only the confidence to get there but stepping stones on how to get there is reading personal development. These two are only the first two that I added to my collection and each serve a different purpose but both are amazing! . Your personal development may look different. Focus on improving on one thing at a time. Here’s a list to start: -Set good daily habits -Read everyday -Listen to personal development (podcasts) -Start a journal -Get 7-8 hours of sleep each night -Take time to self-care -Create healthy eating habits -Don’t make time to create excuses • • • • • #tiptuesday #mindsetiseverything #mindsetshift #confidenceboost #readeveryday #dailyhabits #books 📚 #selfcarematters #sleepbetter #youareimportant #bilingualteacher #bilingualeducators #iteachfirst #bilingualmom #momofboth
An easy question today 🙂 are you a tea or a coffee person? ☕️ . I love both of them equally. I drink tea and coffee every single day. I start my day with a cup of coffee and I will probably drink another in the afternoon. And, tea is mandatory before going to bed. It relaxes me 💗 Needless to say that reading while having any of these drinks is just perfect. 📚☕️
Does anyone have a favorite cozy spot to read? Mine is a at night in bed so I have my ME time! 😜 📷: Alisa Anton

After years of reading books translated into Spanish, it’s so nice to have books written in Spanish. It’s not just about the words but the pictures, themes, and authentic vocabulary. 💕📚✨

If you're not yet reading books 📚 together with your child every day, here are four reasons to start! . . 📕 Children learn and understand a language well before they are able to speak or read it themselves. The best time to begin is when your child is a newborn, or even when they are still inside the womb! Babies love listening to the sound of their parents' voices. . . 📗 Reading books aloud introduces (and helps build) extensive vocabulary: it's even more effective than talking to them! And finding rich language in picture books is not unusual. Dominic Massaro, a professor emeritus in psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, found that picture books are two to three times more likely than parent-child conversations to include a word that isn’t among the 5,000 most common English words! . . 📘 Reading aloud helps children develop word mastery and grammatical understanding - both of which form the basis of reading skills. And the easier it is to read, the easier it is to get ahead in studies of ALL kinds. This means that when parents read aloud to children then are setting them up for a lifetime of personal and academic success. . . 📙 Cuddling up with your child and a book is a great bonding experience. The positive associations with reading that you'll establish with your child in their early years will set them up for a lifetime of reading enjoyment. . . What book(s) are you being asked to read over, and over lately? 😂 Let us know in the comments below! 👇 . . #NoorKids #ReadEveryDay #ChildrensBooks #IslamicBooksForKids #ReadingTime #QualityTime #MuslimParenting #MuslimChildrensBooks #IslamicBooks

Reading Ezekiel 44-45 today with the Chronological Bible Reading Plan. * Ezekiel 44 - God tells Ezekiel to pay attention to all He tells and shows him. He tells Ezekiel the ordinances of the house of the Lord and the laws thereof. Only Zadok’s descendants shall stand before God, come near His table, minister unto Him and keep His charge. The other priests will only be keepers of the charge of the house- “I have lifted up mine hand against them, saith the Lord God, and they shall bear their iniquity” (v.12). * Ezekiel 45 - Ezekiel is told how the portion of the holy land should be divided, and the oblations that were to be offered. * Be blessed 🌻
The Big Umbrella is a simple story with a powerful message about the importance of including and welcoming everyone! In this book when it starts to rain the big umbrella has room for everyone-no matter what they look like, what they wear or how tall they are!

Over the past couple weeks I’ve spent quite a bit of TIME on airplanes. While I’m not a huge fan of flying, I do enjoy “cutting off” from the connected world. This is a prime opportunity to self develop...I love @johncmaxwell books! “The Power of Your Potential” is my latest Maxwell read and I’m so happy I picked it up! Great excerpt here on time. My pet peeve is when people say “I don’t have time”. BS...we all have 24 hours in a day. You didn’t MAKE time. Recently, I’ve found myself using this excuse way too much. I cringe every time I say it and it stops now. What’s a pet peeve of yours that you sometimes do yourself? How do you self-correct? #time #maketime #dothework #riseandgrind #selfdevelopment #improvement #breaktobuild #getbettereveryday #betterthanyesterday #johnmaxwell @johnmaxwellteam #powerofpotential #readeveryday #betterhabits #timemanagement #expectgreatness #teambringit #brainsandbrawn
These are few books that Bookstagram made me buy. 🙈 I saw Julian Barnes on @sumaiyya.books ‘s feed and I was immediately tempted having previously read Barnes’ The Sense of an Ending. ~ This House of Clay and Water came recommended by @vapoursofthoughts and her beautiful pictures of the book as well as a glowing review sealed the deal for me. ~ I bought Norwegian Wood because I recently read Men Without Women by Murakami and found myself thoroughly immersed in the world he conjures with his writing. I wanted to read more of his work but read somewhere that it would be better if I saved Kafka on the Shore for later. ~ In another news, I couldn’t read at all over the weekend because I was off to meet my best friend who recently got engaged. The reunion was so overwhelming and much needed. I am hoping to reclaim my reading mojo this week again. ~ How has your reading been going? ~ #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #bookstagrammer #flatlayforever #minimalism #readreadread #bibliophile #unitedbookstagram #met_createchange #readeveryday #bookishfeatures #mybookfeatures #harukimurakami #julianbarnes #faiqamansab #norwegianwood #theonlystory #penguinindia #penguinrandomhouse
Oh, the magic of a cardboard box! 📦 I had this box left over from Joshua's birthday presents. This afternoon I added a blanket, a couple of cushions and some books and Hugo has been sat in it all afternoon! I think we've been through all his books twice which is quite a feat!

“Useless Things” by L.D. Hobbs • What use have I for useless things? The flower that blooms? The font that springs? The tales of beasts and fairy wings? The childish laughter that they bring? What time have I for paint and play, When work demands I slave away? For all the plentiful, practical fray That tyrant of my day to day Wonder, beauty, what a waste Imagination has no place In the adult mind and space I have important things to chase What use have I for useless things? The picture made to unmake kings? Words that ground transcendent things? The notes that wake the dead to sing? Yes, what use have I for useless things? • • • • #writerslife #poetry #poem #beauty #readeveryday #readpoetry #readpoetrytome #uselessthings #hobbithomeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoollife #sad
Currently reading “Enemy Pie/Pastel para enemigos” by Derek Munson and Tara Callahan King. 🥧 I’ve been trying to teach Lennon the “kill them with kindness” approach, but it’s been hard to explain. But there’s always a picture book for that! And this is the book! ❤️ This is a great story about enemies and not judging a book by their cover. The main character, a little boy, initially dislikes his new neighbor Jeremy Ross and subsequently declares him an enemy. When the little boy discussed his new enemy with his father, his father knew exactly what to do, make an enemy pie. 🥧 Over the course of the rest of the book the little boy realizes he has more in common with Jeremy and that Jeremy was not as bad as he initially thought.
