I just started this book today, should be a quick read ; it‘s not real interesting other than the historical aspect I guess- it‘s a bit early on I will keep you posted

Finished this lecture series I've been listening to since August! Barnhart is an excellent lecturer, & I learned so much! I wish I had free time to sit at my laptop while listening and image search everything he's talking about, but alas, I've squeezed this in while running, cooking, etc. Excellent, thorough intro to pre-European contact civilizations of North America, with some particularly interesting lectures on his specialty, archaeoastronomy.

Caterina Here's a finish for #NFNov! @Clwojick @rsteve388 1mo

This is the second book I've read this month that characterizes Spanish colonial priest Bartolomé de las Casas as a (misinformed and paternalistically racist but) basically anti-colonial-cruelty, humanitarian-reforming sort. But, like, when he said Spain should stop enslaving Indigenous people in South and Central America, he notoriously said that they should instead enslave Africans, so, like 😞

#gratefulreads #nonfiction Probably the biggest influence Litsy has had on my reading is the increased amount of nonfiction that I‘ve read in the past three years. This is one from my TBR. I‘ve read the author‘s 1493 and learned so much. @Alisnazzy transferred this one from her shelf to mine.

Crazeedi Ok so now I just realized there's a 1491 AND a 1493, I thought I had something mixed up!! Both are on my tbr now!! 1mo
ValerieAndBooks Hmm, I‘ll have to pick this or 1493 up (whichever pops up first) next time I see either title! 1mo
Lynnsoprano @ValerieAndBooks 1493 is hands down the best nonfiction I‘ve read this year. Ken gave it to me last Christmas, and I flew through it. (edited) 1mo

It took close to a month to finish this because of how my life has become. And yes, I read this for fun. 🐸🦋

FINALLY!
Informative and interesting. The different theories are interesting to read. I got frustrated with the repetition f information. My biggest issue is that many of the dates and information is from after 1492. I know that a lot of the written record is from after but several references and discussion is of events that occur long after.
It‘s very dense and informative though. 3.7 ⭐️

charl08 Cute cat! This one is on my wishlist, but I haven't picked it up yet! 2mo

My wonderful Powell‘s bag (Swap gift) is now my work bag because after looking for what feels like ever I FINALLY HAVE A JOB! Yay book money! It is at one of the most non-Moose places too, a tool store LOL
So far it hasn‘t been too bad and the people are mostly ok and agreeable.
I‘m still plugging away at the tagged book. I‘m “this” close to finishing.

Soccer and still plugging away at this book. It‘s interesting in the way a textbook is interesting.

Squeezed a run in this morning before heading to the seminary, somehow during the only 20 minutes of rain in the whole day. 😂 It was a drizzle when I first got out there, but quickly became heavy rain. School is absolutely crazy right now and I don't have a second of spare time, so it was restorative and reinvigorating to do a fast run even if it took time away from schoolwork! #audiorun
