Artemisia Gentileschi is a new name for me, sort of. I know I didn’t study her paintings when I was in high school, and that I found out about her a few years ago, thanks to a Tumblr post. I’m sure I have it saved somewhere because it was interesting: it talked about Susanna and the Elders, about how the original drawing was more vivid, harsher.

So, this is a first for me. Or not really. Have I already read books centered on sex? You bet. Have I already read books centered on dicks? Well, nope. I wasn’t even aware there was one out until Kevin and Andrea contacted me a couple of weeks ago.

#Book Review – The Book of Tea; O. Kakuzō
I’ll admit I requested The Book of Tea by mistake. Blame old age, rush, or whathaveyou, but I misread something, I understood something else, and I went in expecting tea-related pictures. Imagine my surprise when those traditional Japanese kettles I was dreaming of never materialized. My tea fields? Sorry, wrong book. Still, my perplexity was short-lived: The Book of Tea turned out to be an informative tale, steeped in history and culture. All in all, a lucky mistake.
#BookTour – Homeschooling and Working While Shaping Amazing Learners; L. M. Preston
