Though it took me longer than I‘d like to make time to read this book, it is one that will haunt me. There is much to digest here. Stevenson tells the story of his work to free death row inmate Walter McMillan, who was clearly innocent. He weaves in so many heartbreaking cases throughout. His discussion of those serving life sentences for crimes (allegedly) committed when they were 13 or 14 just broke me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Very informative, yet sad. It was depressing reading about the people tried in an unjust system. Those who were sentenced to death with no evidence etc. What's sadder is that it is still going on now.

listened to this nonfiction book, written by a man who started an Alabaman law firm to help those wrongfully convicted to death row, mainly people that are black and minors. It's an appallingly heartbreaking and important read, but not well-written; it describes an overwhelming number of disproportionate cases. It's confusing and lacks a coherent theme. I'm excited about the movie, which I assume will be focused on one particular case.

#WeeklyForecast 47/19

I‘m almost finished with The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne, our #NYRBBookclub choice, and loving it.

Next will be Bitter Orange For #ATY2019, where this week‘s prompt is ‘a book related to food‘.

If there‘s time left, I‘ll start Missoula for #ReadingUSA2019. Krakauer is such a good non-fiction writer.

In between, there‘s still Doctor Moreau. It‘s less than 200 pages but it takes forever to finish them.

Cinfhen Missoula was very good and Bitter Orange was very meh 😬😂 although Missoula was a dense read 3d
BarbaraBB I loved Swimming Lessons, that‘s why I bought this one, but I remember your so-so review indeed. I hope I‘ll like it! 3d
Kalalalatja I found Missoula so interesting! 2d
BarbaraBB @Kalalalatja I‘m really looking forward to that one. Krakauer is such a good writer. I was fascinated by his 2d

Nora Roberts is doing a photo challenge on Instagram. This is what I posted for Day 6 Trilogy, which could‘ve also worked for Day 4 Garden.

I thought this was pretty good. I was intrigued by her after the first debate and wanted to learn more.
