Smug as f***
The New Negro: The Life of Alain Locke - Jeffrey C. Stewart

Yesterday the 2018 National Book Awards were announced, and among the winners was Jeffrey Stewart for his biography of Alain Locke. I was really happy to see that he won, not just because it's a worthy choice, but because I read it earlier this year. I always get a nice smug feeling when I read award-winning books before they win, and this was the first time I was ahead of the curve for the National Book Award. I think I'll take the rest of the day off to bask in my awesomeness.

The Quiet Place - Sarah Stewart, David Small
The Quiet Place - Sarah Stewart,David Small

An antidote to the toxic attitude toward immigrants of color right now. As if people of Northern European descent somehow have a more valid claim to American citizenship than indigenous people of the continent. It's like demanding that the UK remain for Romans only. 

 

Set in 1957 the dresses are spot on an appropriate, and matched with mid-century furnishings, signage, and motor vehicles.

Reckless - An Anthology by Mika Jolie, Kylie Stewart, P. M. Carson, Sharla Lovelace
Reckless: An Anthology - Sharla Lovelace,Mika Jolie,Kylie Stewart

 

 

There are no rules when it comes to love and these couples are determined to make every minute count. In a moment of heartache these people find that the chance of pain is worth the risk of happiness. The heart wants what it wants and the Reckless anthology is great reading with a bit of naughty fun. WINNER.
