Before digging into the new book on the Theranos scam, rereading a good book about an older scam. All of this has happened before... pic.twitter.com/SKSSAP08Zl

Just started reading #HeartTalk by @withlovecleo. The dedication alone has me feeling good! Shout out to @PodSaveThePpl for the introduction. Excited for this little journey. #ISeeYou pic.twitter.com/QTQTzchHfZ

Amplifying this giveaway of @ToniBuzzeo 's new book, WHOSE BOAT? in hopes that it isn't too late ... because Toni is a peach and you need her book. RT her original tweet for a chance to win your very own copy! https://t.co/lHRqIwEFiB

Nice summary of the book Bad Blood, definitely a book worth reading https://t.co/2BZuGHp4Ea

It's not the only book on this list that I've read, but I love that Janelle Monáe included The Great Cosmic Mother (which I read soon after it came out 30 years ago). https://t.co/J1q8V2T3VM

Reading can also be a social activity
At @MathesonMuseum, @macdonald_peggy “channels her inner @cynthiabarnett” (as we all wish we could) to intro @jackedavisfl at celebration of his #Pulitzer for “The Gulf.” The book is beautiful & comes at perfect time for me, as I try to absorb all the #NOLA environ history I can. pic.twitter.com/gJ2uNAqEO3
