#NFNov This was a detailed but very sympathetic account of the last night of Titanics existence. The class divide at the time definitely played a part in a lot of deaths, not as many as the movie portrayed but the difference in death tolls between classes is substantial. #TIL - there were more male 1st class passengers saved than women & children in 3rd class.🚢 #NonFiction2019 #SomethingWithTravel

This is the story about Percy Fawcett, explorer who was obsessed with mythological city - El Dorado, and who eventually disappeared in the jungle (in 1925). It‘s also the story about author - David Grann and his obsession with the Fawcett, and his expedition to find Fawcett. Although I liked some parts, especially parts from Fawcett‘s diary, I find the story as whole rather boring. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cinfhen I was really drawn to this story. I was totally fascinated. Although I heard the movie was terrible. 10mo

MaleficentBookDragon @Cinfhen the movie was horrible. 10mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds intriguing, sorry it didn‘t live up to the hype for you. 10mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen I felt the same way about this one. 🙂 10mo
Cinfhen My hubby is quite the movie critic and he had NOTHING nice to say about the film @MaleficentBookDragon which goes to prove @Bookzombie #TheBookIsAlwaysBetter 10mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Cinfhen I was angry after watching it. Angry at the movie and angry at myself for sticking around for the whole thing. 😕 10mo
Cinfhen That‘s the worst @MaleficentBookDragon and I‘m surprised because I felt this book WOULD make a good movie 🍿 😜 10mo

Newly checked out ebook through Overdrive/Libby app. I‘m going to say Scott Kelly's memoir would be one extraordinary travel experience.

AnansiGirl @Riveted_Reader_Melissa you read my mind. I was just thinking about editing “out of this world” into my caption. 👩‍🚀 12mo
