It‘s a beautiful Sunday for EFM homework on the back porch. Also I really like these highlighters recommended by MMD.

I've tagged my favourite book of the month; it's an audiobook I've been recommending to all my friends because it made me feel better about humanity in general.
My total number of books is higher than usual, but 17 of them are picture books, which don't take long, even when I read each one several times. There was a readathon on booktube in April to encourage adults to read picture books (#PictureThis2022) and I went all out!

CuriousG I have this one on my shelf waiting to be read. I can't wait for work to calm down and give me some extra reading time, because I desperately need to feel better about human nature! 2mo
KathyR I'm reading "Bloodlands" by Timothy Snyder right now. In it he details how Hitler and Stalin, between 1932 and 1945, killed 14 million people, none of whom died directly as a result of war. ? I think I may need to read this book as an antidote. 2mo
Lindy @KathyR Yes, I can see how you are in need of an antidote. ❤️ 2mo

Emily Eternal | M. G. WHEATON

An interesting concept that falls short of it's full potential. Emily is an interesting character who doesn't quite fully materialise on the page whilst other characters flit through the story as mere vessels for Emily. Wheaton makes the Sci-fi writer mistake of getting too smart in places meaning I lost interest and the story never quite recovers.

I admire what Ramirez attempted here and am giving it a Pick over a So-so for this aim to give humanity to science history. But I was never transported and inspired; I had too high hopes, perhaps. Yet, she has a great #PieinLit mention and she drops in Perkins mauve color (NF book by Simon Garfield) so there's that. 👇

#JulyJourneys Day 23: In Sophie Blackall‘s Author‘s Note in her latest exquisite picturebook, she mentioned “I have made books about boars and babies and bears and #lighthouse(s) but what I wanted in that moment was a book that would bring us together. A book about their home and mine.” My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-n5K

Man I Became | Peter Verhelst, David Colmer

Narrator is a gorilla, captured & indoctrinated in a program to turn animals into humans. “Civilization” includes underwear, cell phones, walking upright, use of a knife & fork. Ultimate test=cocktail party chit-chat. Beginning is harrowing, like a slave narrative, but tone wavers. Is it satire? Fantasy? Allegory? Observations on the oddity of human social structures. Refuses to draw conclusions, feels unfinished. Orwell it isn‘t. Trans 2016.
