I'll let @DoodleWrangler weigh in, but that's THE MAGIC PUDDING, the single strangest children's book I have ever read. Consort read it and said, "This is the weirdest thing I have ever experienced and I went to art school."      fuente

Guía del club de lectura para matar vampiros
Grady Hendrix - 2020-04-07
Calificación de Goodreads
A Patricia Campbell su existencia nunca le ha parecido tan insignificante. Su marido es un adicto al trabajo, sus hijos adolescentes tienen su propia vida, su suegra senil necesita cuidados constantes, y siente que siempre va un paso por detrás de su interminable lista de cosas por hacer. Lo único que la mantiene viva es su club de lectura, un pequeño grupo de mujeres de Charleston unidas por su amor a las novelas de crímenes reales. En esas reuniones se habla de todo: desde la familia Manson a asuntos de sus propias familias. Una tarde después de la reunión del club, Patricia es salvajemente atacada por una anciana vecina, lo que le llevará a conocer al atractivo sobrino de esta, James Harris. James es un hombre de mundo y muy leído que despertará en Patricia sentimientos que no había tenido en años. Pero cuando al otro lado de la ciudad unos niños empiezan a desaparecer y sus muertes son ignoradas por la policía local, empezará a sospechar que James Harris es más un criminal que una réplica en carne y hueso de Brad Pitt. ¿Cuál es el verdadero problema? James es un monstruo de una especie diferente, y Patricia le ha dejado entrar en su vida. Poco a poco, James se irá introduciendo en la vida cotidiana de Patricia tratando de apoderarse de todo lo que considera suyo, incluido su club de lectura. Sin embargo ella no está dispuesta a rendirse sin luchar en esta historia plagada de sangre sobre una relación de buena vecindad transformada en algo siniestro.

Fragilidad blanca book cover
Fragilidad blanca
Por qué es tan difícil para los blancos hablar de racismo
Robin Diangelo - 2018-06-26
Calificación de Goodreads
Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, anti-racist educator Robin DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what can be done to engage more constructively.

I can’t remember the last book I highlighted. I am highlighting at least two sections on every page of @RobinDiAngelo book.      fuente
