Right. Often ‘empowerment’ is just a euphemism for learning to manipulate a system that classes you as less than fully human. If something doesn’t give you more tangible power, it ain’t empowerment, it’s indoctrination.

Omg. This is like my Batman v Superman. But instead of fighting each other they’ll both be exhibiting colossal emotional intelligence.

Deborah Orr. Damn.

Loving the audiobook of Catch and Kill. Did not have Ronan Farrow pegged as someone who would 'do the voices' but I am DELIGHTED to be proven wrong.

'Run, Shadowfax, show us the meaning of haste'

YES @stephenkb
If I were nodding any harder I'd damage my spine.

Bernie is having a difficult time deciding which #keeper proof she loves the most

Waterstones is my happy place. I spent hours of my childhood in there. When I lived in Amsterdam I'd go to the branch of Waterstones on Kalverstraat to alleviate homesickness.
My book is available to preorder from Waterstones.
I am very happy.
