Today I went to local Helsinki Library (Kallio branch) and I picked two picture books for the #picturethis2024 readathon.

First book “Saari“ (original Dutch name “Eisland“) is a “silent“ book, something completely new to me. It does not have a single word in it and tells the story through pictures only. I will show some illustrations tomorrow in another blurb

Book 3 in series. The first book remains the best.

Roz goes on a mission to save her island from the poison tide. Although she met me friends along the way, I enjoy her interactions with her island friends most.

In the afterword the author claims to not want this book to be preachy/moralistic but it is a smidge.

Readable and informative look at the anatomy of the ocean, its movement and why, biodiversity in all the layers, and complexities. Portions of the book will find its way in my Honors Science class- interesting without being dry, informative not too technical, and a perfect explanation to listen to climate news with more understanding. Excellent.

Captivating! This is an incredible work of nonfiction about the deepest parts of the oceans by Susan Casey, who traveled with teams of researchers to the ocean floor in submersibles. Readers get to know crew members, learn about the technology of the dives, and find out about the incredible life in the depths. Plus, new environmental fear unlocked: companies are trying to mine the depths for materials for batteries. More ⬇️

Chelsea.Poole Continued— And how horrible is this: human-created waste (plastic, etc) has made its way to into the organisms at the bottom of the sea. We know more about outer space than the place where all of life began! Seriously, read this, if you have any interest at all in the oceans, or heck our earth! 4mo

I‘m in a Care For Creation (environmental) group at church and we have committed to each reading one book about the environment each month. This was my January book. It was pretty dated, but I couldn‘t resist hearing what Ted Danson had to say.

I tried reading this when I was 8 years old. Now as an adult I'm hoping I understand it better. Just two paragraphs in and it already feels so much more relatable!

It‘s Texas Book Festival weekend! Yay!

I started in this room with Brendan Slocomb and Laura Warrell, saw Ben Goldfarb and Dayton Duncan, a debut author panel with Alice Winn, Shelley Read, and Lindsay Lynch. Rebecca Makkai talked about her latest. And finally the tagged book and author along with Melissa L Sevigny.

It was a great first day, I have so many books on my Libby TBR that weren‘t there this morning! Looking forward to tomorrow!

Megabooks Fantastic!! 6mo

Eyelit Did they have pictures at the underworld panel? I was so bummed about missing that one! 6mo
Soubhiville @Eyelit no pictures, but both authors and the moderator were animated and excited. It was terrific. 6mo
