The words pictured below are not mine and I am not at the protests, but everything I have seen and read leads me to believe that the protesters are not the looters. They are distinct groups with very different intentions. One is completely valid, the other needs to be stopped. They are stomping on the message and drowning out important voices.
I've been thinking about making this instagram page for years, and finally decided to do it in honor of National Library Week!
The name is quite literal-- most of my books are borrowed (see the link in my profile to check your local library!), and most of my time spent reading is borrowed from something else I should be doing (working, sleeping...).
Because of those two things, many of the featured books will not be new releases (although you'd be surprised what you can find at the library!), but follow along for some recommendations, reviews, and favorite quotes.
If you label every email with IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ
it makes them all seem equally (un)important.
It did say Countdown to Spring but since the first day of Spring came and went under quarantine, it seemed pretty anti-climactic. So we moved to this, until...who knows! I think that's the hardest part for me-- not having an end date to count down to. We're doing pretty great here, but I handle things much better when the end is in sight. 🗓
It's not even 9am and I've already written an email that includes "as previously mentioned" and "as always".
Time to delete, take a break, and try again haha People are CRAZY and I apparently am not responding well.
Coronavirus alphabet game*. I'll start, keep it going!
(We did it with Christmas words before and it was really funny. I got this one from the ever-brilliant Jenna Mccarthy.)
*I know it's not a laughing matter. I just have to keep some lighthearted moments in the midst of this craziness!
Prediction for Merriam-Webster's Word of the Year/new term added: social distancing
Pretty sure that's congestive heart failure 🤔
