I think romance novel tropes are tropes because of the inherent fantasy or wish fulfillment in them. Here are my guesses about the wish fulfillment in various tropes, but I'm hoping to hear other people's thoughts!

Small Town Romance - the fantasy of a big emotional support network. (The secret sauce in Hallmark movies, though when I worked at Hallmark Channel I NEVER heard anyone say this.) Your BFF wants you to be happy. So does your mom. So do ALL YOUR NEIGHBORS!
Small Town Romance is also just a validation for people who live in small towns and rural areas that are often overlooked or derided ("backwater," "flyover country," etc.).

For a detailed book review, read the entire thread.

Thanks to @IndicaBooks and @IndicaOrg for bringing it to my attention.

If you perfectly combine history, geography, science, mythology, and fiction, you'll have a delicious book cocktail. Aside from the Bharat series, there is no such thing as a perfect book cocktail.

The seventh book in the Bharat series is The Magicians of Mazda.
Books in the Bharat series are, as usual, very catchy. I'm accustomed to finishing Ashwinji's book faster than others. When I start reading any book in the Bharat series, my reading speed increases, and I try to finish the last chapter as soon as possible.

How To Decide by Annie Duke.

A brilliant no frills book that offers a framework for thinking about how to improve your decision making , along with a set of tools that help execute it.

A few of my takeaways from this gem !
There are only 2 things that determine HOW your life turns out : LUCK & QUALITY OF DECISION MAKING.

We have some control over only one of those two things.

When you make better quality decisions, you increase the chances of good things happening to you.
Our objective is to choose an option that gains most ground in achieving our goals.
Sometimes which entails the least risk.

Thereby we examine the quality of the beliefs informing the decision,the available options & try to envisage the future based on our choices.

ANYBOOKS -Best Alternative 📚

If you are a book addict like me, it's no doubt that getting the best, yet free books library like the ANYBOOKS app has been difficult since they brought down their server. Good news, I've got an alternative for you. #BookTwitter

Open thread!
There are arguably 100s of book libraries out there, which are mostly tied to subscriptions or do not allow unlimited downloads. E.g, Chapter 1 is close to any book 📚 but is limited to 3 free downloads, and to access the unlimited library, one has to subscribe.
I mean, I would recommend Chapter 1, if you have money for subscription , max of 4k naira annually.

But, If you are in need of unlimited access to books and downloads and I do not mean "Gutenberg books", #booktwt
I found Libby, by overdrive 📚

the following is the review I submitted to my various reading places

but I felt the need to give it directly to my favorite place

One of the biggest issues I've ever seen in ctitical care has been miscommunication and misunderstanding. There has always been  a disconnect between what a doctor says and what a patient understands.

Even more importantly, the disconnect between what a patient tries to communicate and what the doctor understands.

Hey, brilliant writers! I shared this in a couple of virtual events last week. This is how I pitch a story to producers, and you can use it to pitch to agents or editors, too.
#WritingCommunity #screenwriting #MondayMotivation #WritersofTwitter
Remember, the person you're pitching your story to may have to pitch it to someone else! A literary agent will pitch it to editors. A book editor may pitch it to execs or sales reps. A producer may pitch it to investors. So keep it simple!

#HowToPitch #amwriting #writinglife
1. Unless time is a real constraint, take just a minute for small talk before launching into your pitch. Establish some rapport.

Gillian Philip added #IStandWithJKRowling to her Twitter account in 2020 resulting in HarperCollins & book creators WorkingPartners terminating her contract.

If the judge permits, we'll be reporting from the preliminary hearing in her employment tribunal.…
Gillian Philip’s claim against HarperCollins and book creators WorkingPartners alleges she was discriminated against because of her age and for holding and expressing gender critical views.

#WORIADS #BookTwitter
Both publisher HarperCollins and book creators WorkingPartners were aware of her gender critical views. Her support of @jk_rowling generated a Twitter storm and a coordinated attempt to get Gillian Philip fired.

Was asked to review this but have been putting it off. I am more worried about what it will say about me as a person and scholar than what I have to say about it. But I need a break this morning so here I go.

#soctwitter #BookTwitter #bookreview #bellah Image
Enjoying this biography of Bellah by Matteo Bortolini of the U of Padua. It's very well written for a sociologist, much less one who I assume is not a native English speaker. It is a full biography not just an intellectual biography.
TIL: Bellah's father abandoned his family and committed suicide, leading him to be renamed Robert Neeley. He was a competitive individualist in HS. And he served a year in the Army after he arrived at Harvard. Image

7 Simple Steps To Build A Daily Reading Habit:
1) Experiment with different book mediums

If you love holding a book in your hands, read print books.

If you like having a hundred books in your pocket, read ebooks.

If you're an auditory learner, listen to audiobooks.

Try all three and see what works best for you.
2) Give yourself permission to read anything

You don't have to read classic or bestselling books.

You're free to read anything and everything.

Follow your genuine interests and curiosity.

As @naval wisely said, "Read what you love until you love to read."

O deus das avencas: eleições de 2018 e possibilidades de transformação👇🏼 Image
Comecei a leitura ontem desse livro do Daniel Galera, que é composto por 3 novelas. Ontem iniciei e terminei a primeira, que dá nome ao livro. O enredo é interessante e angustiante: um casal se fecha em sua casa em Porto Alegre para esperar a chegada de seu primeiro filho👇🏼
Isso se passa na última semana de outubro de 2018, mais especificamente no final de semana do segundo turno das eleições.

O parto demora mais que o esperado, Galera consegue transmitir toda a angústia daquela espera, as dores lancinantes, a sensação de que nunca acabaria👇🏼

1 aspect of my body I'm not happy with is my terrible immune system

while I didn't officially become disabled until I was 18,
my quality of life often was effectively chronically ill growing up,

I catch everything, & when I get sick I stay sick for twice as long as others
For my teen years, I literally got pneumonia every year
Being always sick made keeping up with school really difficult, especially with my caring responsibilities

My grades struggled & until college I believed I had no intellectual potential at all
I bring this up to point out a major modern broken aspect of our medical system & the way American society approaches an illness,

Specific identified illnesses & diseases,
names & cures, societal false/true for claims of illness

I first read this book in 2009 after losing 80% of my monies on Penny stocks as a student when the 2008 drawdown happened.

Thought it was too simple !

Now in 2021, I think this is one of the best books to absorb & implement.

A 🧵

Investing means different things to different people - Be it health/ career/external assets with an intent to reap benefits in future.

So then is everyone an Investor ?
When people do different things with even same investment products we give it a different name.
Investing is a PERSONAL Plan .
It's NOT a product . NOT a procedure.

One needs to have a clear picture of one's financials BEFORE making an investment plan.

Investment products comprise of items with distinct characteristics DESIGNED to satisfy a particular need.

A rogue, thieving U.S. Postal Service employee is in illegal possession of two books from 1899, "Paradise Lost" and "Paradise Regained" by Milton, published in Boston by Henry Alrumvs, stolen from a package entrusted by me to the care of the @USPS.

The @OIGUSPS has an open case. Image
The package was mailed from my home to a valid Southern California address, but returned "undeliverable, no forwarding" and missing the contents. It had been opened, and the inner envelope containing the books ripped open. It was returned by my mail carrier, sans the rare books.
I am offering a modest #reward upon the return of these books, and hope to see a successful apprehension and prosecution of the @USPS employee who committed what appears to be felonious theft by a Postal Employee.

Sharing some takeaways from the book : India's Money Monarchs* , ONLY of the conversation with Sanjoy Bhattacharya.

* Available on Kindle Unlimited now.

@Vivek_Investor and @dmuthuk
I think you & your followers might like this . 🙂

🔸On How to Minimise Risk ?

* Look at long term volatility of Cash Flows ( assuming Financial Statements paint a fair picture )

* Check if business generates Free Cash Flow ( FCF). This ensures company is unlikely to be wiped out at the bottom of the cycle.
🔸Management Integrity matters.

You notice good governance only when it is gone !
Hence unless one has demonstrable proof on a long term basis that people are honest , consider them to be crooks .
Cynical approach but helps save us from losses !
