Not only do I love reading fiction, I also enjoy reading nonfiction. In fact Tamed was the first book I read this year. Alice Roberts @ancientmodernist explores the relationship between human and other well know species such as rice, apples, dogs, cattle, chicken, potatoes and how we tamed and farmed them. There is not always a straight forward answer to whether we tamed them or they tamed us. I never thought reading about rice could be so exciting but Alice Roberts did a great job engaging the reader and teaching us bit about prehistory, one of my favourite subjects. Do you enjoy reading nonfiction? What are your favourite subjects? #archaeology #nonfiction #books #science #reader #bookstagram #booklover #booksofinstagram #prehistory #palaeoanthropology

QUESTION 1 of 8: What’s your story in 1 sentence? . . I was raised Amish and literally escaped in the middle of the night when I was 15 years old, and then went on to become the first Amish person to graduate from an Ivy League school, Columbia University in New York City. . . I left with only what I could carry: the clothes on my back and $170 USD in my pocket. My departure was permanent. . . I’m a recurring rape survivor and the author of An Amish Girl in Manhattan: Escaping At Age 15, Breaking All the Rules, and Feeling Safe Again (a memoir). My story has been featured on MTV, Tim Ferriss’ blog, Forbes.com and the Huffington Post. . . Today I work with entrepreneurs, CEOs, and leaders to make the world and workplace lawsuit-free and safe for women, 33% of whom are sexual assault survivors. . . Self-care is key to my daily routine for remaining sane amidst the heavy work of trauma. I love gardening and cooking and I feed myself and my parakeet babies a non-GMO diet. . . I also host an iTunes + YouTube podcast the Amish Entrepreneur Show, collecting 1,111 stories of sexual assault survivors—from all walks of life—for worldwide release. I believe that that number of voices speaking out is all that is needed to permanently drastically reduce the rate of sexual assault locally, nationally, and globally. Through these stories, the culture of ignoring sexual assault and women fearing for their safety and security is no longer possible. . . ****** WATCH THE ENTIRE EPISODE of 6 ANSWERS to this same question: Memoir Authors Speak: Is Love Possible After Sexual Assault? A panel of MeToo memoir authors shared their stories, with special guest trauma expert offering tools for PTSD (post-traumatic stress). 8 Q&As live. Get the FREE replay: www.TorahBontrager.com/Authors . . . I thought that this would be a timely topic given that the holidays are often so suicidal or painful for us assault/trauma survivors. (In case you’re new to my channel, I’m an Amish recurring rape survivor.) . . Please re-post this for your friends and followers this month, to send everyone a bit of extra love. You are not alone. Thank you for spreading the love and support.

Фасетотекты — загадочная группа крошечных рачков, у которых за 130 лет исследований так и не нашли взрослую форму. Зато личинок известно множество. Пришлось ученым в лаборатории искусственно вызывать метаморфоз, вот только получилось нечто довольно странное. Что - рассказываем в новой картинке дня.

What if you live a happy life; you live in a gorgeous home, have a nice car, go to a good school, and then war comes? Your city is bombed, your street is bombed. And, then, your neighbour is bombed. Your mum tells her parents, 'I have to take my daughter to safety before we are next'. Your grandparents say they won't go, they won't leave their home, but your mum is determined to protect you, keep you alive. The bombs fall everywhere around you. It's only a matter of time before they hit your house. Still your grandparents won't leave. So, with the greatest sadness, you wave them goodbye, not knowing if you'll ever see them again. . The journey to safety is difficult, but you can bear it, because you're heading for the loving arms of a good, safe country. But, then, you arrive... and it isn't at all what you expect it to be. Your mum's memories of a good country die in the past. She's no longer a visitor to be embraced, but a refugee to be tolerated. Not even tolerated. An embarrassing burden, that the government has no idea what to do with, so they tie her up with red tape, and she and her daughter are bound to a no-man's land, no better than an open prison, outcasts within it. . Homeless, displaced, isolated and useless - a life hard to imagine if you've never suffered it. Destination: Freedom is a memoir based on the true life story of a young girl, Lily; of her mum, who gathers the courage to escape their war-torn homeland to arrive in Europe with two suitcases, determination and a large supply of hope. The book is available in English and German. www.LilyAmis.com . . #lilyamis #nassimadesign #nonfiction #memoir #bookstagram #bookwriting #writersoninstagram #stroytelling #literature #book #ebook #yabookstragrammer #yabooks #bookreviewer #bookgram #ilovebooks #readerofinstagram #bookstagrammer #authorsofinstagram #freedom #writersofinstagram #destinationfreedom #germanbookstagrammer #freiheit #germanbookstagram #deutschebücher

Definition of Freedom is the follow-up story to Destination: Freedom, an autobiographical novel. The escape from a war-torn home to Europe was only the start of a new set of problems. The sacrifice of giving up everything precious in her young life was only the beginning of a lifelong misery as an adult. Growing up in a country, where Lily felt unwelcome and rejected from minute one was an emotional disaster. . . In Definition of Freedom, the follow-up story, Lily openly shares her experiences as a foreigner in Switzerland, where her life was constantly overshadowed by bureaucracy, discrimination, social isolation, bullying and unemployment. During the twenty-seven-year period waiting for her naturalization she experiences set-backs, betrayal and all-too-human disappointment. Despite everything, Lily and her Mom emerge stronger from every defeat and always fighting for their rights! . . The memoir is available in English and German. www.LilyAmis.com . . #lilyamis #nassimadesign #nonfiction #memoir #bookstagram #truestory #educationalbooks #bookwriting #writersoninstagram #writerofinstagram #stroytelling #literature #freedom #definitionoffreedom #switzerland #yabookstragrammer #yabooks #bookreviewer #bookgram #ilovebooks #readerofinstagram #bookstagrammer

Kiedy cztery lata temu wydawalam ten zbior reportazy nawet mi do glowy nie przyszlo, ze trafi do finalu Nagrody im. Kapuscinskiego za reportaz literacki. Mozna powiedziec, ze pisalam te ksiazke dziesiec lat. Najwieksza przyjemnoscia jednak bylo przegrac ten final ze Swietlana Aleksijewicz, ktora chwile potem odebrala nagrode Nobla w dziedzinie literatury. Jednym slowem reportaz rulez! Ps. Na tej wiolonczeli grala kiedys zona mojego kolegi, pisarza ikon. Dzis cierpi na powazna chorobe mozgu, nic nie pamieta I nie porusza sie o wlasnych silach. O takich wlasnie ludziach, przetraconych przez los, napisalam te reportaze. #życietozamało #izamichalewicz #reportaz #reportaż #literatura #nonfiction #kapuscinskiaward #nagrodakapuscinskiego #książka #ksiazka #czytamy #book #bookstagram #czytambolubie #czytaniejestsexy #czytajpolsko #instabook #bookzwami #bookztoba
