This was a really entertaining and eye opening look at how lost cities are found using Lidar. It can be quite technical at times and somewhat frustrating. Scientists can be overly sensitive babies and most of the jungle just wants to kill you. But if you can get past that it is a fascinating tale.

The Cutty Sark was built in 1869 to bring tea from China to England and sailed until 1922 carrying various cargo. After being restored twice, it is now open for tours in London. This book is filled with photos of the ship, documents like the original rigging plans, and oral histories. #Booked2021 #ContainsPhotos @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage

The Four Winds | Kristin Hannah

Can you tell I am ready for fall? 🍁 🍂 Too bad it‘s 90 out and Maya‘s school AC has been broken for 2 days! 😫

This was the first book I‘ve read by Kristin Hannah, and I loved it! I will definitely be reading more of hers. When in the right mood, because this was pretty much depressing from the first page to the last. You definitely need a box of tissues next to you with this book!

4thhouseontheleft Counting this for #booked2021 #containsphotos since the title pages for Parts 1-3 include a photo. @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage (edited) 9mo

This book was retail therapy on a day when I needed a pick me up and it more than did its job. #containsphotos #booked2021

Austerlitz | W.G. Sebald
post image

An opportunity to pick up a bk languishing in my tbr pile and what a wonderful read.
A chance meeting in a antwerp station allows the narrator to recount conversations of many yrs with jacques austerlitz. A moving tale of a child adopted in 1939 by a childless welsh couple, who as an adult realises he was part of the kinder transport. This triggers a dislocation ⬇️

andrew61 For austerlitz who retraces his origin to the Czech Town he was born in and his mother's forced move to the ghetto and the events that occurred there. Told without paragraphs or chapters this is a hard read as it moves with austerlitz's reflections on childhood, architecture and loss but it is a rewarding and moving read, unique and I feel I need to read it again to fully appreciate the writing. Definitely a 5* book. 9mo
Leftcoastzen This has been on my TBR forever ! Great review! I may move it up the pile 9mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Sounds powerful! 9mo

It‘s good to be back in Bayview High! We get introduced to new main characters but it was also fun catching up with the original cast. I thought this sequel was just as good as the first. A fun, engrossing YA mystery.

Cinfhen I really enjoyed the first book 😄I‘ll have to check out this one ☝🏼 9mo
TheSpineView Great job! 🤩📖 9mo

Picked up for #booked2021 #containsphotos .This photographer's journey through Malaysia capturing scenes in #malaysia made me tear up a little as what will be left of it after this pandemic?
The photographs were beautiful, the corresponding paragraphs captured the view points of the subjects.

This book made me laugh so hard! I can‘t wait to watch the show. I listened to the audio while also reading the book and I highly recommend both. Really, these two could have talked about watching paint dry and I would have enjoyed it. Loved the history of Scotland plus the dynamics of these two #booked2021 #containsphotos #doublespin #july

Cinfhen I really books/audio that makes me lol !!!! Will keep this one in mind ~ thanks for posting & sharing 😄 10mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 10mo
4thhouseontheleft I plan on listening to this on my upcoming road trip! 10mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I watched some of their show on Starz and laughed. This definitely seems like a good choice for audio! Except … of course … men in kilts … pictures! 😋 10mo
