Marcus Off Duty: The Recipes I Cook at Home | Marcus Samuelsson, Roy Finamore

I really enjoyed this #AudibleOriginal (one of my two freebie selections this month). It was such an adventure! Marcus Samuelson uses his unique experience of Harlem and brings in friends who are musicians, chefs, historians, politicians and religious leaders. This was a great treat for the ears and the mind and I can‘t wait to make some of the recipes they made along the way. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Jillylovesbooks I‘ve enjoyed his PBS series No Passports Required. He explores the food and culture of a particular immigrant population in each city. 5d
BlameJennyJane @Jillylovesbooks wow! I had no idea he had a show on PBS. I‘ll check it out. Thanks!! 4d
Jillylovesbooks @BlameJennyJane Season 2 is airing now on Mondays. I think you can also stream episodes on the PBS website. 4d

Brothers in Hope: The Story of the Lost Boys of Sudan | Mary Williams, R. Gregory Christie

#NewYearNewYou Day 24: Fats‘ review: #BenevolentBrothers in Hope “is a story of courage and survival. The Lost Boys of Sudan traveled barefoot to Ethiopia, and then finally sought safety in Kenya. It was a dangerous journey through deserts, mountains, and rivers. Their lives in refugee camps were as challenging and difficult but it helped prepare them for their new life in America.” Full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-8lj

Eggs Perfect!!👏🏻👏🏻 3w

I struggled a little to get through this book. About an orphan struggling to protect her country and herself. About women fighters. But also about a war we know cannot be won against imperialism. The writing was just not for me.

ChaoticMissAdventures This is on my list for next month. I am not hearing much about it but my local bookstore sent it to me for their pick. 4w

So I decided to do this #audiobingo (since I‘m doing this for the year I‘m gonna go back and post the audiobooks I‘ve listen to this year already)

The genre is historical fiction... not one I‘m used to.

This was such a heartbreaking book but I‘m so glad to have experienced it. My learning more about different cultures this year (#20for20) has been so enlightening. I‘m glad I have this goal :)

Somehow the tagged novel slipped under my radar! 😮 Stacked.

Part of my New Year‘s resolutions is to spend each month learning about a new culture/country. This month is Ethiopia. I picked this book to help incorporate this goal. Diving into it tonight on my way home from work.
