2018 Book Club List Vote

If you want to add in your list, do that as soon as possible by responding in the original thread.

Decide which list we go with this year by looking at them here:


2018 Nonfiction Book Club.

I want to make a non-deadline kind of book club. You don’t have to read any of these books by a certain date each month, just read them sometime this year and discuss the ones you’ve read. The more books you read from the list chosen, the more likely all of you can have a discussion about them all. You do not have to read every book on the list.

So my suggestion is we each individually make a list of books we think people should read and then vote with which list we should go with.

5 books are hidden gems you found.
5 books are books you haven’t read yet.
5 books are added during different parts of the year when a new book comes out that you think everyone totally should read.

Each book on the list can have their own thread maybe with “Book Club 2018:” in the title. My suggested book list will be in the comments.

I mentioned it here but...

DU processed my recurring payment...Twice. One on January 26th and then one on 28th. And this valentines day I have 40 hearts to give for free. What's going on?

If you were to move to a European country... Which would you choose?

Or you can blurt out any other country in the world you want to live in, but since I'm considering moving out of the U.S (I'm thinking Germany) someday, I'm curious to see where people would shoot for.

I need a party here for what I've just accomplished.

I'm learning Spanish and I have officially just learned how to Roll my R's.

I'm going to another country for the first time.

To learn Spanish! I've noticed that I know a lot already. No means no? Got that down pretty fast.

She died today on Memorial day, of all days.

My husband has known her for 39 years, so you could say she was a sister.

Usually in tragedies such as this, I'd turn to her as someone I can message online to work my feelings out. I can't really do that right now. She had her problems, but it gave her enough wisdom to be realistic about everything and had a sharp mind that helped me reflect on some things.

I knew her longer than her brother, my husbands best friend that passed away in 2009. Her mother has outlived both of them and I hope her mother finds some peace of mind somehow.

I'm not particularly good at tributes, so I looked back at what I wrote about her. When my college class required us to interview someone, I interviewed her. She really liked how I portrayed her, as it was a short biography of her life. But I decided posting any of that here would be too personal. Although she was never ashamed to tell her full story as a survivor of so many things, it reflects her as a person still alive with hopes of a better future with her new husband for years to come. Something that is not possible anymore.

Stigmatization of the mentally ill.

How do you attack it?

That question can be both seen as a question of how you do it here or elsewhere and a question of what can we do about it?

So, more mentally ill = violent psychopath threads in GD.

Come and rant here. I know I need a thread like this, but since no one has made one yet, here it is.
