This book explores themes of loss and grief, as a girl puts her heart away in a safe place after experiencing sadness. As she encounters more emptiness in her life, she wonders how and when she can retrieve it. A poignant tale that will tug at your heartstrings.

@austinkleon Oliver Jeffers’ The Heart and the Bottle. It’s a children’s book, also for adults. It’s beautiful and deep and sutil.      source

All About Love
New Visions
Bell Hooks - 1999-12-22
Goodreads Rating
This book by bell hooks, a renowned cultural critic and feminist, examines our societal view of love as romance and offers a proactive ethic for a loveless society. With razor-sharp prose, hooks delves into her own search for emotional connection and offers a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for individuals and society as a whole. All About Love is a powerful affirmation of hooks' status as a visionary who can change your life.

@the_jennitaur @jessicahelfand @jiatolentino 8. All about love by Bell Hooks. Essay. The first book I read this year, after a recommendation of an already then ex. Heartbreaking, but good for those open to the challenge. A book about psychology, self-respect, feminism, and care.      source

Favorite books read in 2019 🧵 1. How to do nothing by @the_jennitaur. Essay, beautifully written. Not a book about working less, but about understanding why we do, our relationship with technology, choosing how/what to attend to, and the politics of all of that. Also, birds.      source
