'Brown Clay' is a poetry book written by Isabel Villarreal, who is a Black/Latina American queer artist and writer. This collection has themes of identity, self love, sex, relationships, trauma, and healing through the lens of Black liberation and empowerment. Isabel, she/her pronouns, is an online activist for Black, Indigenous, and other POC in the LGBTQ+ community, Black Lives Matter, and mental health. She creates digital infographics, social media protests, and tags for the community. She is deeply committed to social change and representation.

The American Cruiser's own book, carved and designed by Captain J.C. Pease, Oswego 1874
The book itself was written by American naval captain George Little 1846, based on his own experiences aboard a privateer during the War of 1812. Captain Little also includes details of his eventual capture by the British and his time spent in Dartmoor Prison. So this is a personal journal and experience report.

How to get back into reading.
(From someone who read 2 books in 2020 and 10 books in 2021 so far)
Short story Collections are a great place to start. You can start with classics like OHenry, Guy de Maupassant and Saki. Or short stories by your favourite author. Short stories help you to get back into the habit of sitting with a book, understanding characters and tracing the plot in your mind. Sherlock Holmes stories are another brilliant place to start. Mystery books also gives you a reason to read further to know what happens.
Poetry. Don't have to start with Shakespearean sonnets. Instead, begin with something easy to read or accessible. My favourite is Mary Oliver. Her poetry is beautiful and not very hard to understand. There are poetry reading videos by Mary Oliver available on YouTube. These are fun to watch and will give you an idea about her as a poet.
Short novels or novellas are another great way to get back into reading.
Listen to Audiobooks if you already like Podcasts. Or listen to Slam Poetry
And Don't read anything you don't like, just because others like it. Pick up a book only if it interests you. Going through the book previews on Google Books are an easy way to see if you like particular book.
And try to find out atleast a little bit about the author and the setting before starting a new story or poetry collection. This helps you understand the book better and is readily available on the internet.
Watch book related videos on YouTube - bookshelf tours, book reviews, reading like a celebrity, anything that interests you. My suggestions will be JackEdwards and Uncarley.
Hope you find something useful from this. Happy Reading.

Listening to an audiobook where a lawyer character records another person speaking without them being aware for “evidence” and knowing that since they’re in California it won’t be able to be used because it is a two party consent state.

Summer studying challenge // 3rd August - What is your least favourite thing about the beach?
People? I am not the most social person on Earth. I must say the place I have been going to in the last few years is pretty calm, which is one of the main reasons I love this place.
