This book started off as one to fill some time waiting for another book in the library, I was drawn into Henrietta's story and the debate of cell ownership. I never knew the importance of HeLa cells or what they were. Thank you Rebeccca Skloot for telling her story.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego This book is great, very eye opening! 5d
BookwormM A book I think everyone should read as we owe so much to Henrietta 5d

Introducing Ethics: A Graphic Guide | Dave Robinson, Chris Garratt
post image
Pickpick

Whilst acknowledging that other ethical traditions exist, Robinson focusses on the Classical European tradition, which is something to bear in mind when he concludes we can really know nothing for certain about ethics. I'd have liked it to be more rounded, but within its remit, it was a good starter text. Glad I read it in one sitting, though I'd benefit from reading it again in chunks, I think.

I‘ve been MIA on here but excited to be back. Turns out having 2 jobs and doing graduate school leaves you very run down lol. Excited to be back and will try to post more. Here‘s a required reading for my research methods course. #keeponkeepingon

Mehso-so

Not bad, I don‘t want the soso to make it seem like I hated it, I think my expectations were too high after years of being sure I‘d love it but not getting round to it, so I wound up disappointed. Great concept, subject, important to write and learn about, but I wasn‘t crazy about the writing style and found the structure odd, which made it less than perfect after I‘d read such glowing reviews. Not a bad book and I‘d probably still recommend

Caterina This was required reading for my freshman year of college, and I had not heard any hype yet (and Litsy probably didn't exist? It was 2012), but other than that my experience was the same with this book. Totally second your review! 2w
SW-T I had the same problem. Fascinating topic but the writing style made it so-so for me. 2w

Sorry I‘ve been quiet! I haven‘t been feeling great (maybe a cold or maybe just feeling run down) and I‘m still resting my ankles so #bookfitnesschallenge is still on hold. I‘m still motivated and excited for round 2 @wanderinglynn but im on the bench right now, which is okay, I‘m seeing the rest as part of my overall fitness.

Just arrived in Yorkshire for my cousin-once-removed‘s birthday weekend and getting some reading in in my hotel room

This week I did a lot better with my meditation goals. I made my 3 day goal for meditation, 3/5 for exercising and I'm now 9/10 for books, admittedly my eating wasn't great but I did drink more water. So all in all it wasn't a bad week but I'm hoping to do better for the last one 😺

These are the audiobooks I listened to at the beginning of the week when I drove out to and back from seeing my Mom and family ☺️! They were all superb except for “Lullaby”, which was mediocre. My favorite among the pack is the tagged book, Sam Harris‘s 😁—I love philosophical essays.

Have you read any of these?! Highly recommend them.

QuietlyLaura How‘s your mom doing? I hope everything is ok. 💙 3w
