I have not seen Black Sails that #ANationOfThieves is from but I understand it is a prequel of sorts to Treasure Island. I read my older brother‘s copy when I was in grade school. It was this cover. #nostalgia

#SoaringScores #catchup
The Slant Book is just one of the many children‘s books & other books available to read online in the digital collections of #TheLibraryofCongress 📚The children‘s collection has classics & lesser known books published in the U.S. & England before 1924. I featured this one because I was just flipping through a copy at my library‘s bookstore.😍

Kauai is one of my favorite places & this book is a favorite too. It‘s about the author‘s #JourneyToTheIsland to work at the National Tropical Botanical Gardens there. 🌺

BarbaraBB I must get there one day. Still on my bucketlist.... 14h
CrowCAH I agree Kauai is beautiful! 5h

What I liked best was learning about “The Reno Cure” where women would go live in Reno, Nevada for 6 weeks in order to establish residency & get an uncontested divorce. Set in 1952, 3 women follow #TheCallOfDestiny (one more reluctantly than the others) to new lives in a time when it wasn‘t easy to take a different path than the happily ever after they expected. Paired with Chop Suey for my book tour review link to post👇🏻

DebinHawaii Link to my full review & recipe for Choo Suey with Shrimp inspired by the book: http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/2019/10/the-book-tour-stops-here-review-of-li... 19h
Cinfhen I‘m curious about this book - thanks for sharing and for playing catch-up 🧡 15h
CrowCAH I find the divorce proceedings in NV fascinating. Just six weeks! 5h

I have about 5 prompts to catch up on this weekend so I will do them in no particular order.
When I think of a #TimeBombTown I think of the hidden Rockton, tucked away in the Canadian Yukon & filled with people hiding from something. It always seems like a ticking time bomb is waiting to go off there. (And yes, I use this series a lot! 😉) Waiting for book #5.

Hooked_on_books I love this series! 17h
Cinfhen Never heard of this series before....how about you guys my #seriesSquad @EadieB @Andrew65 @TrishB @gradcat 16h
TrishB @Cinfhen not heard of it but will check out 👍🏻 12h
CrowCAH Reminds me of the Jack London novels in the Canadian wilderness! 5h

There are more than #TwoTribes in the Philippines, in fact there are 134 ethnic groups, mostly indigenous, there. About a dozen tribes were put on display at the St. Louis Exposition, the most popular were the Igorrotes & a tribe of them was recruited & brought for display at Coney Island in 1905. I like to give this fascinating yet dismaying book about their treatment a little love now & then—it‘s a great book.

#GroovyTrain made me think of the 70s & of The Brady Bunch. Has anyone else been watching A Very Brady Renovation on HGTV? I have only watched one episode so far as the HGTV hosts & Brady kids renovate the house used for the exterior in the series. Very groovy. 🌼I read this book years ago & don‘t remember much besides the various pairings of kissing siblings & Greg‘s (Barry William‘s) “date” with his in-screen mom. 😱🤢

Cinfhen Excellent choice😁 2w
arlenefinnigan Cool 😎 2w

This book has been in my Kindle #TBR ‘stack‘ for a couple of years now. 📚📚😬📚I bought it for the true crime & Pacific Northwest setting. Linda Hazzard (known as the “Starvation Doctor”) claimed that starvation diets & other treatments were a #Remedy for a number of diseases & medical complaints. She took their money & slowly starved people to death at Wilderness Heights, her Olalla, WA sanitarium in the early 1900s.

BookNAround There‘s a great Stuff You Missed in History Class (I think) podcast episode about this. 2w
Chrissyreadit My favorite murder also has a podcast episode. The book is in my kindle TBR. I can‘t believe how much that woman got away with! 2w
Hooked_on_books It‘s good! Very disturbing. 2w
arlenefinnigan Wow. Disturbing. 2w
