Lol. Same. I had to do the math more than once. I was born in '82 and I will be 40 next year, so as much as it hurts to admit it, they are right. 😮😱😅😥😭

This is a website that features all kinds of books, regardless of political agendas. Nobody is shoving anything on anyone--if you don't want to read the book, then don't.

If no one ever read books by people they disagreed with, we would never learn anything.
