“Now that I was about to be a passenger I looked at the plane more attentively, and I did not like what I saw. “What‘s with the oil streak?” I asked Chuck. “Don‘t worry about that,” he said... “ @Megabooks @GlassAsDiamonds get out your popcorn, ice cream or on my case peanut M&M‘s I think we found another #FamousLastWords #LostTogether Douglas Preston is about to fly over the Honduran Rainforest on a recon mission in an old unsafe plane!!!

Megabooks 😱😱😱 What is the saying? “God protects fools and drunks.” He‘s definitely one of those! I‘m thinking I might be able to use this as “something that turned out unexpectedly” for #nonfiction2019 if they all live! 🤭 7mo
WanderingBookaneer This is a great read. 7mo
Crazeedi Did you know he contracted a disease during this trip, I can't remember exactly what, but he's been affected long term from it, some kind of tropical something. Just awful 7mo

Cinfhen Had no idea @Crazeedi I was shocked nobody got bitten or died during their time in the rainforest. It‘s such a crazy story 7mo
Cinfhen I‘m loving this book @WanderingBookaneer ❣️❣️❣️It‘s SO MUCH BETTER than the Larson that I‘m listening to 7mo
Crazeedi @Cinfhen I read an article or maybe heard a podcast, that he has been sick since then, that was right after book came out, so I don't know if he's improved, but it sounded like he really suffered , not sure if permanent 7mo
Cinfhen After I finish the book I‘ll Google @Crazeedi ~ now Im wishing I was an archeologist 7mo
Crazeedi @Cinfhen good idea, I was just thinking of doing this to refresh my memory of it. 7mo
Crazeedi @Cinfhen I didnt read this yet, my hubby did and said it was a good book, that's when I happened to hear about him 7mo
Crazeedi @Cinfhen just sent you an email 7mo

Only on page 7 and I‘m freaking out!!!! Journalist Douglas Preston has just been briefed on all the deadly insects and snakes that live in the Honduran Rainforest, where he will be covering an expedition. After listening to the horrors that await him, his reply “We would be fine.” Ummm, something tells me that‘s not how it‘s gonna go. #FamousLastWords #LostTogether @Megabooks

Cinfhen I‘m already hooked @Megabooks but I have so much to do today 🙈I‘m not going to have much reading time 😩😫 7mo
Hooked_on_books I really enjoyed this one! I felt like Preston did a great job of being a regular person, revealing what this would be like, creepy-crawly horrors and all. 7mo
Cinfhen It reminds me a bit of this other book I read and really enjoyed @Hooked_on_books 👉🏼 Have you read that one??? 7mo

Megabooks @Cinfhen me too! I‘m totally hooked!! I‘m trying to read slowly and take it all in. My dad‘s 70th birthday is this weekend, so I‘m going to try to get to chapter 12 by tomorrow night. 🎉🎉🍾🥳 I hope you have fun with your guests! 7mo
Cinfhen Happy birthday to your dad!!! Enjoy 🎶💞🍾🎂 Every time I pick up the book I don‘t want to put it down @Megabooks 7mo
Cinfhen I‘m at chapter 7 @Megabooks I‘m loving the history and myth surrounding the “White City” 7mo
mdm139 @cinfen I liked this book much better than Lost City of Z 7mo
Cinfhen I really liked Lost City of Z but I can tell this book is going to be better @mdm139 7mo
GlassAsDiamonds Is it wrong this post literally made me start reading? (Brain: that‘s so Australian! 😂😂😂😂) 7mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen That‘s where I am too!! 7mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen And thank you!!!! 7mo
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen I‘ve heard of that one but I‘ve not read it. I read one of Grann‘s more recent books and loved his writing, so I‘ll need to try that one, too. 7mo
Cinfhen Yay!!! So glad you‘re joining us @GlassAsDiamonds 😊 7mo

Another day, another serial killer targeting prostitutes. The prostitution victims in this case were all Craigslist prostitutes. This book is one of the better, more publicized true crime books of recent years. I thoroughly enjoyed it, despite the killer‘s unknown identity.

Hooked_on_books I agree. I found this book to be well done. 7mo
Cinfhen I‘m amazed at how much true crime I read...I‘m almost at your level, but not quite there 😜 I‘ll keep my eye out for this one 7mo
Reviewsbylola Yeah I‘ve got a problem. 😆 @Cinfhen 7mo

#TimbitTunes day 21: #LostTogether

Blue Rodeo is my favourite band. I've been a fan since 1991. One of my favourite BR songs is "Blue House", which was co-written by Greg Keelor and Damian Rogers. Paper Radio is my favourite of Damian's poetry collections and I hope she writes more soon ?

Anton Our first dance at our wedding was Lost Together! 7mo

“These violent delights have violent ends and in their triumph die, like fire and powder, which, as they kiss, consume. The sweetest honey is loathsome in his own deliciousness and in the taste confounds the appetite. Therefore love moderately. Long love doth so. Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.”

Day 21 - #LostTogether
While not exactly lost, this group of high-placed hostages whose lingua franca is music, forge unexpected bonds during their interminable captivity. Stuck in the South American Vice-Presidential mansion while negotiations mostly break down, these international hostages are “lost together,” but they learn the often elusive art of communication.

This is the first thing that came to my mind—I hope I did it right.

Cinfhen Excellent choice!!! And fabulous graphics!! Thanks for joining in 🥰 7mo
gradcat @Cinfhen Thanks so much! You are really nice, and you always respond...I want you to know that I really, really appreciate that, and you! ❤️❤️❤️ 7mo
Cinfhen Awww, Thank you @gradcat I really enjoy “Litsying” 😉 7mo
gradcat @Cinfhen And you‘re very good at it! ❤️ 7mo

My energy and time for reading have gotten #LostTogether, but my energy and time are being spent on learning, doing exciting things and sleeping when I‘m not at work 😅

At least my books look pretty until I feel like getting back to them 😍

The Old Curiosity Shop | Charles Dickens

So I have just finished The Old Curiosity Shop. I enjoyed his descriptive writing so much and it was often poetic. As for the narrative I thought it plodded along, sometimes a little to slow but picked up a pace towards the end.

My next read is staying in London though in a rather different genre!

There are certainly people #losttogether in The Old Curiosity Shop #TimbitTunes Prompt 21 @Cinfhen @TheKidUpstairs

Izai.Amorim The Aaronovich series was lots of fun. 7mo
Cinfhen Impressive!!! 7mo
MayJasper I have got right back in to the story. It certainly is fun @Izai.Amorim 7mo
