15 good reads/re-reads in 2013. I read fewer books in 2013 (22) than in 2012 (58), but that’s because I definitely wrote 4x the amount in 2013 versus 2012 and read about 3x more articles, essays and papers in 2013 than 2012. These 15 above were good reads though. Some are re-reads because honestly, each time I read a book it’s new. I’m rarely the same person picking it up for the second, third or fourth time. It’s like a familiar destination but how I interpret the terrain changes and the journey is altered a bit.
Below are links (courtesy of readabookson's blog) to download many of them; the ones I couldn't find I just added an Amazon link though you can check your local Black-owned bookstore as well, if you have one in your area.
In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens: Womanist Prose by Alice Walker - Alice Walker
The Womanist Reader - Layli Phillips
Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness and The Politics of Empowerment - Patricia Hill Collins
Blues Legacies and Black Feminism: Gertrude “Ma” Rainey, Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday - Angela Y. Davis 
Sister Outsider - Essays and Speeches by Audre Lorde - Audre Lorde
Pedagogy of The Oppressed - Paulo Freire
Are Prisons Obsolete? - Angela Y. Davis
Assata: An Autobiography - Assata Shakur
Black Looks: Race and Representation - bell hooks 
The Cross of the Redemption: Uncollected Writings - James Baldwin
Black Sexual Politics: African Americans, Gender and The New Racism - Patricia Hill Collins 
Sisters of The Yam: Black Women and Self-Recovery - bell hooks 
Mom & Me & Mom - Maya Angelou
Double Stitch: Black Women Write About Mothers and Daughters - compilation
The Same River Twice: Honoring The Difficult - Alice Walker
I have a long reading list planned for next year, (which I will try to pin to Pinterest again like I did for ‘12-‘13), but my list is always longer than I can actually accomplish. I guess that’s what makes it great; the idea that you can never really finish, that it’s about the quality of what you read more than the quantity, it’s about how you apply it, and some things need to be read over a lifetime, again and again, even as ideas continue to evolve and build on previous foundations. 

Im fucking printing these shits out then jetting from my work. Fuck that place with their pastel khakis.

Some repeats, but more GSEXy books to download!

"Gosh we apologize for that, so sorry about that, all right, it looks like we’ve lost that interview."
What CNN thinks “losing the feed” to an interview looks like
The lawyer appointed by the store owner begins to affirm that the culprit was someone other than Mike Brown, right when CNN “loses the feed.”

#gif warning

seriously it’s a vhs tape rewinding noise/motion, am i supposed to believe, in the digital age, that this is what “losing the feed” would look like now
