#AyUpAugust Even though I‘ve had a busy weekend, I couldn‘t #stop reading this book. A riveting account of one of the wildest bank heists on US soil and craziest trials to determine the guilt of the Narco 3. I thought journalist Peter Houlahan did a great job of recreating the chaos and timeline of events, making for a compelling and captivating read.
If you were to ask me the number one thing I should #Stop doing, it would be procrastinating. My mom used to call me a “procrastinating perfectionist”—putting off what I didn‘t want to do but then working extra hard & late to do it with perfection. I‘m better than I used to be but I still will pull out this quick & easy read with its good tips about overcoming procrastination when I find myself sliding backwards. #🍽🐸📚

#AyUpAugust #Day10 #Stop Nothing could stop the firebug this book is about, certainly not before he started the conflagration in the Latrobe Valley, Victoria, on a stinking hot summers day that became known as Black Saturday. The amount of destruction he caused, and the deaths that happened on that day will never be forgotten. In a country like ours, bushfires are a yearly event but some are so vast & destructive they scare even the most jaded.
#Stop ! #IPredictARiot ! Or, at least that‘s the feeling among the Russian people in the early 1900s. When the Romanov dynasty falls after hundreds of years of rule, a revolution is the cause. Rappaport tells the history of this turmoil through the eyes of foreign visitors, who witness firsthand the revolution and the dangers they now face. #ayupaugust
