#WordWeavers 6/18. If your book came with a small toy, what would it be?
Depends. Probably a wooden toy of some kind, if it's the book about an ancient oak tree, which I am editing.
Or, if it's the fantasy series, perhaps a marble gargoyle or stone dragon of some kind. Or one of the monsters I invented. One for each book in the series. I'll scare the children witless. 😄 …

Finished "Translation State" by Ann Leckie, a nominee for Best Science Fiction for Goodreads in 2023.
I came into it without having any knowledge of the Imperial Radch trilogy and it works as a standalone book. It's a bit of a space opera, a bit of a fairly predictable & angsty love story, and a bit of political intrigue. It's kind of a bit of everything and I think that's why I liked it but didn't love it. 4/5 stars.

The General Synod considered, slightly amended, and approved a statement to add a statement to the Book of Church Order that non-church ministries of the classis/middle assembly reflect the racial-ethnic and socio-economic diversity of the area. The amendment replaced "To the extent possible" with "the classis shall strive" because the former phrase has often been used to avoid action.

Finally got my hands on Timothy G. McLellan's new book, *Science Interrupted,* & his approach (thinking ethnographically with, instead of merely against, bureaucracy) is great. 👇
@… & I attempt something similar in our recent piece on institutionalized research ethics in anthropology.
The book:

McLellan, p. 3: "For many anthropologists and in many anthropological subfields, the idea of anthropology as a practice of thinking with our ethnographic interlocutors would go without saying. When it comes to certain objects of inquiry, however, anthropologists have been less inclined to adopt this method. This is perhaps especially so with the often-interconnected themes of audit cultures, bureaucracy, and international development."

Just finished watching 'A Man in Full', the adaptation of Tom Wolfe's eponymous book, on Netflix. The review in The Guardian is a fair one, but no mention is made of the music choices. They were excellent.

Ex-aide’s verdict on Trump in book
Donald Trump’s defense secretary called him
“a madman in a circular room screaming”
and stayed away from the White House,
a new book quotes a senior Trump aide as saying regarding the man now facing 88 criminal charges but set to be the Republican presidential nominee for a third successive election.
Just how low will Republican politicians stoop to be Trump’s running mate?

Day 2: The Gnostics by Jacques Lacarriere

Orientalism run amok. A deeply elaborate Greco-Roman-Egyptian gate is festooned by snakes, two small danger noodles curled around the columns having a hissy fit and a big mofo apparently levitating at the top. An idol is at the bottom. Great use of negative space: the title is in bold red capitals against a white background, the author in black beneath it, all very plain to see. knOWleDge

Day 6: Anatomy of Evil
by Ruth Nanda Anshen

Excellent Teutonic fonts. Light beige cover. Adam & Eve by Dürer. They are standing side-by-side; she gestures at him, cradling her already bitten apple on her left side, ponytail streaming to her left above it; he is holding his unbitten apple down by by her right hip, his right hand holding a barren vertical branch of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil.

Ok, so I only read 25% of Equal Rights so far, but I deeply love it. The idea that earthly (homeopathic) medicine is Women's magic, and the "silly", "flamboyant" magic is mens magic resonates deeply with me, and I was told "he found his voice" in this book was dead on. It was like books 1 & 2 he was testing the waters of how absurd he could make it, and went all in on book 3.

Day One: The Dot and the Line – a romance in lower mathematics by Norton Juster

Title in yellow. Serifs. Background light blue. B/W Cupid etching takes aim at a large, red dot in the corner, the shaft of the arrow being the line.
