Small Is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered - E.F. Schumacher

I don't know quite where to put my finger on this book, and the author perhaps shared the same sentiment. There's some eco-idealism, then it borders Luddism, then some insightful perspectives on scaling-down and decentralization.

For me at least, it failed to deliver. It's a poof of interesting dust with some golden speckles here and there.

Beautiful Illusions (Beautiful Oblivion Book 2) by Addison Moore Free!
Beautiful Illusions (Beautiful Oblivion Book 2) - Addison Moore

Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you—in the most heartbreakingly beautiful way. Gavin’s story. I fell in love hard and fast. As quick as she came into my world she was gone. Demi said she has secrets—that she’s done horrible things. Who hasn’t? I’m not going to let the past determine our future. Sometimes love lays forever at your feet and sometimes you need to fight for it. Demi is worth every damn battle we’ll have to go through. I’d take on the world just to keep her safe. And, knowing what I do about her, I just might have to. All I need with Demi is one more night to convince her we’re worth it. And that one night is going to cost me everything.

Out of Nowhere (Middle of Somewhere Book 2) - Roan Parrish

“Before, I was—before I met you was… terrible. Everything was terrible. I was… terrible. I didn’t mean to be. I just… I couldn’t—and then I met you and now, I can’t—if you weren’t—I don’t… I—”

Reading progress update: I've read 72%.
Out of Nowhere (Middle of Somewhere Book 2) - Roan Parrish

“In prison, people build themselves up. They construct a… a version of themselves that they think is most likely to get them out of the situation with as little damage as possible. It’s not a lie, exactly, but they emphasize some traits, cover some up. They say certain things but keep others private. And it’s armor, just like doing push-ups and lifting weights to build up their bodies. And you just… I don’t know, if you pay attention, you learn to translate it. You see which parts are armor and which parts are weapons.”

He strokes his thumb against my neck. Our faces are so close I can feel his breath warm on my cheek, see the jagged scar that breaks his eyebrow and the frown lines on his forehead.

“Armor,” he goes on. “Armor’s not dangerous. That’s for survival. It’s weapons you have to watch out for. And you—” He strokes my lips with his thumb. “It’s mostly armor, Colin. And when you’re with me, the armor falls away. Who you are without it… it’s beautiful.”

 

❤️❤️❤️ Still one of my favorite scenes. ❤️❤️❤️
