Fresh off From Holmes to Sherlock, it's time for more of the same vein.
Started reading this #nonfiction account of Grace Humiston.
#Sherlock #history

RamsFan1963 There is a book coming out this month, Dec 7th I think, called Observations By Gaslight. It might interest you as a Sherlock Holmes fan. Its tales of Holmes told from the viewpoint of side characters like Inspector Lestrade and Mrs Hudson. 5d
Vivlio_Gnosi @RamsFan1963 ooooo! Thank you! I'll be on the lookout. I appreciate the tip. 5d
Vivlio_Gnosi @RamsFan1963 I just added it to my #TBR stack 5d

Broken Horses: A Memoir | Brandi Carlile
post image
Pickpick

I heard “The Story” when it came out in 2007, but I didn‘t really become aware of Brandi Carlile until I saw her perform “The Joke” on the 2019 Grammys. Since then her music has been played regularly at our house. I really enjoyed listening to Brandi‘s story so far and the stories behind many of her songs. As others have stated, audio is the best way to go as she performs the songs acoustically at the end of each chapter. Also, please see ⬇️

Bookzombie @suet624 ‘s review as she is absolutely right about hearing Brandi and the twins perform together. #doublespin #nonfiction November Review (edited) 5d

#teamgamesleighers - it's not yet midnight in my time zone, so this is my #wintergames2021 #tbr post! And honestly, I can't make myself construct a solid TBR. I need to finish SO MANY current reads, and I know I'll read at least 2 #holidayromance books. Other than that, lately I've been in the mood for #SFF, #nonfiction, or #spooky books - so I think additional reads will likely fall in these genres. Merry reading!

StayCurious Great! Good luck on your goals:) 5d

This book is phenomenal. The focus is on the four roles of women in art - Venus, Mothers, Damsel in Distress & Monster - and talks about the historical & mythological background and modern connections and all with a detailed & feminist approach. An absolute delight and I learned a lot.

So many literary figures, allusions in this novel. If possible, I wanted to find the source of “ say nothing.

BethM I know Of Irish Blood is fiction but I feel like “say nothing” has to predate 1975? 1w

This is packed full of information and includes numerous short personal anecdotes. It also includes a balance of details from different perspectives including students, family, and staff. However, it is written in a very straightforward report style and does not elaborate on any of the personal stories.

Audio duration: 8 hours 14 minutes

* I received this #audiobook through the Libro.fm ALC program for educators.

I wish all history books were written in this interesting manner. Mostly history has been written with activities on land at center stage. In this book author Sanjeev Sanyal have beautifully portrayed how activities in Indian Ocean, Arabic sea, etc along with other parts played equally vital role in shaping the series of events which in turn shaped our today as we see.

I love finding exactly what I came for at my local comic shop. I saw Maia Kobabe talking about ir involvement in this comic a while ago, which sparked me to look it up and I've been anticipating its release earlier this month for quite some time! What an amazing project funding organizations focused on climate action and environmental protection!

I thought that the idea behind this book was great. Cults are very nuanced, especially in this day and age. However, she uses an incredible amount of words I need a dictionary to look up (and heavily rely on context clues). #cultish #cult #nonfiction
