An amazing book about an amazing woman. Elizebeth broke codes of smuggling rings, maxi spy rings and, along with her husband, helped develop the science of cryptanalysis. #audiobook #nonfiction

This unfortunately titled book is actually a really interesting Iook at the bathing culture and history in Japan -- from outdoor natural hot springs and fuedal era water delivery to local bathhouses and super sento. Also a look at chemistry and radiation in regard to onsen, the evolution of the sex trade in Japan, and racism at bath time. Some nice black and white photos too. #mommyreads #travel #japan #onsen #history #nonfiction

Books from my son. He went to hear of panel of women philosophers at UConn. When I express an interest, he purchased a couple of their books. Along with two mysteries!

Learning about cults can only ever be enhanced by the spring weather. Really brings out that commune vibe.

I‘m really enjoying this so far: detailed, well researched and quick paced. #SSDGM

I heard a lot about this book and was really looking forward to reading it (I love a great travel memoir). This one was interesting, entertaining and unique. My biggest complaint is that the author said he went on his cross country bike trip specifically for material to write this book. To me, that takes something away from it and makes it less genuine. In the end though, I still really enjoyed it and gave it 4/5 ⭐️ // #memoir #nonfiction #travel

I‘m giving this a pick, but I‘m somewhat torn. I appreciated what the author had to say, and I felt she presented points well. However, I also felt the collection was more repetitive and less focused on “flyover country” than I expected. As a lifelong Missouri resident, I was looking forward to essays that clearly discussed Midwestern examples. Except for a few, I felt these could have been written anywhere in the U.S.

I‘m on a mission to finish all the books I‘ve started and this one is now checked off that list! Finished this #audiobook this morning. It was good, but not as funny as I expected. His tone is so dry and lacks any inflection that it become a bit monotonous to listen to after a while. He‘s completely self deprecating and some of his stories were entertaining though. 3/5 ⭐️ // #memoir #audible #nonfiction #davidspade

This popular science book looks at a variety of current projects intended to bring back extinct species—wooly mammoth, passenger pigeon, aurochs, dinosaurs. She also looks at attempts to engineer the DNA of corals and the functionally extinct American chestnut. Ethics issues are addressed. I found this book to be fascinating and balanced, there is a lot to think about! Also: cloning is not a thing for extinct animals!
