Another great entry - I love this series.
Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay
“Perhaps we expect gay public figures and other prominent queer people to come out, to stand and be counted, so they can do the work we’re unwilling to do to change the world, to carry the burdens we are unwilling to shoulder, to take the stands we are unwilling to make. As individuals, we may not be able to do much, but when we’re silent when someone uses the word “gay” as an insult, we are falling short.

Roxane Gay
The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro
"I would love to chat with someone who has finished the book. I want to discuss the very last sentence and ask you if it left you as disoriented and full of longing as it did me. This is a one-of-a-kind novel. You could read this for the language a..." Read more of this review »

Jenny Levine shared a quote

Daniel H. Pink
“a “grouplet”—a small, self-organized team that has almost no budget and even less authority, but that tries to change something within the company.”
Daniel H. Pink, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us

“Engaged, productive employees do not work in a vacuum. They need workplaces that help them bring out the best in themselves—mosh pits of creativity where energy and inspiration can flow freely.”
Carson Tate, Work Simply: Embracing the Power of Your Personal Productivity Style
