Recursion | Blake Crouch
post image

I just want to make a point: sodium thiopental is not what kills people in a lethal injection cocktail. It is the anesthesia, which is mainly manufactured in countries that do not allow the death penalty, and they won‘t sell it in the US, despite it being great to use in vet med (according to my professors). What is actually lethal is KBr, potassium bromide, which stops the heart.

You got it wrong, Crouch. #themoreyouknow

Megabooks And just FYI, KBr is not the euthanasia solution used by your vet. What we use is much nicer than that. 5d
mom2bugnbee @Megabooks Ugh! Thanks for the heads-up so I don't get mad when I read it! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 5d

Mimi28 Oh geez this book is already “ in - transit” for me at the library. I‘ll try to overlook this though, lol 😂 5d
Megabooks @Mimi28 It‘s just, I mean, aren‘t there fact checkers these days?! 5d
OnlyYoo Lol I‘m going to say no to the fact checkers because Grey‘s Anatomy has been running for awhile and is wildly inaccurate 😂 5d
Megabooks @OnlyYoo Lolololol!! Yeah, TV never gets it right either!! 🤣 5d
Mimi28 Lol, it‘s actually waiting at the library for me now but I am going to get it tomorrow because it‘s raining really hard here right now, lol. I still can‘t wait to read it. 5d
Megabooks @Mimi28 it‘s really good so far!! I hope you enjoy it. 👍🏻👍🏻 5d

Silver Sparrow | Tayari Jones
post image

(Looking to do these regularly again as well! ☺️) Today's author spotlight: Tayari Jones! The 48-year-old Atlanta native is a current Emory University English faculty member who has taught a Toni Morrison course. President Obama has included her on his reading list. She had “Food & Wine” magazine come cook with her in her home. She writes on a typewriter and with a pencil, and she still uses a classic iPod. #AuthorPotpourri #TheMoreYouKnow

Brooke_H I love her. ❤️ 2mo

Sleeping Giants | Sylvain Neuvel
post image

I love Sylvain Neuvel, and I love his multiple perspective Sleeping Giants trilogy. Really fantastic full-cast audiobooks as well! But I think it‘s #AMatterofPerspective on what you think multiple narrator books. Some people love them, others don‘t. Some authors do it better as well.

Now on to the episode! This popular double facepalm 🤦🏻‍♀️ 🤦🏻‍♀️ gif started here. It‘s definitely one of my favorites to use. #TheMoreYouKnow #StarTrekSummerMay

julesG I once had this as a postcard. I love it. And I agree to multiple narrator audiobooks and Sylvain Neuvel. 😁 4mo
Megabooks @julesG That is awesome! Sometimes you just need a double shot! Neuvel is certainly my favorite in SF right now. 4mo

Things I learned about chemistry today: bismuth will be the last remaining element on the planet and too much silver in your system will result in argyria, a condition in which your skin turns a blue color.

The main character in this book keeps talking about Monster Munch and so of course I need to know what this is immediately. Thank you Google! Turns out Monster Munch is a crunchy corn chip kind of snack that comes in such tantalizing flavors as Pickled Onion, Roast Beef, and Flamin' Hot. #themoreyouknow #setinireland #booked2019

Lindy 🤢 7mo
cathysaid Just. Say. No. 7mo
AlaMich Roast beef and pickled onion? 🤢 7mo

JennyM It‘s a British thing...I‘ve live o/s for 11 years and when we have visitors they have to bring a packet of pickled onion monster munch and Cadbury chocolate! Yum 😋😆 (edited) 7mo
Weaponxgirl Monster munch is amazing! Brit here who loves every single flavour and they are big and super crunchy. That character is right on the money! 7mo
Weaponxgirl @JennyM do you need some curly wurleys? My aunt who lives in the states often asks for those in a care package 😂 7mo
RachelO And I‘m instantly transported back to the school bus in the early 80s. 😝 Never was a fan! 7mo
Kaye I‘m wondering if this was what Karl Pilkington was talking about in one of his books. He always packed a bunch of snacks from home for his trips to other countries and I think this was one he mentioned. 7mo
JennyM @Weaponxgirl curly wurleys are the best - we usually get a big sweet package with each visitor 😆 and it‘s funny, @RachelO I was never a fan before I moved away! 7mo
Weaponxgirl @RachelO noooooooooo!!! 😂 7mo
valeriegeary @JennyM Cadbury is the best chocolate! 7mo
valeriegeary @Weaponxgirl @jennym @RachelO This why Litsy is the best. I get to learn about snack foods in other countries! I would definitely try the pickled Onion monster munch but I'm a little suspicious of roast beef! 🤣 But now I'm dying to know... What are curly wurleys? 7mo
Weaponxgirl @valeriegeary they are a chocolate bar by Cadbury, basically a toffee coated in chocolate in a curly wurly shape. 😂 I would also recommend crunchy bars and toffee crisps. And if you ever want to make a Brit indignant ask us about the price of freddos. 7mo
4thhouseontheleft 🤢 that does not sound yummy to me! But I do love everything Cadbury. I also hate all the weird Doritos flavors. 7mo
Cinfhen Love that you googled this!!! 7mo
Boooooks I love monster munch who wouldn‘t want to eat pickled onion flavoured crisps shaped like feet 😂. For me curly wurleys are the kind of chocolate that I leave in a selection box. 7mo

I‘d not heard “nature red in tooth and claw” before the lyrics to Sting‘s “I Was Brough to my Senses,” so I didn‘t know it was a reference, until it came up in this book. #themoreyouknow
