Loving this book about Elizebeth Friedman who was responsible for “smashing codes” for decades, while the infamous Director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover publicly took the credit.Here is an interview with the author, Jason Fagone.

#literaryluck #goldspines So many people are choosing Little Golden Books, and with 2 kids I have so many of those! But I glanced at my shelves and realized I actually have quite a few books with golden spines without leaving the living room!

vkois88 A few really great choices in there!!! 9mo

One final bit of year end business: #LitsyAtoZ. I don‘t think I ever officially signed up and when I hit my funk I stopped tracking for a while. I filled this in after I read my last book of 2018 and was surprised and delighted that I got all but two letters. I‘ll be tracking again in 2019 and maybe this time I‘ll make it official.

Texreader I didn‘t make mine official until a couple of weeks ago. You did great! 11mo
Nute A very hard-earned accomplishment. Way to go!👍🏽 11mo

It is rare that I stumble upon a book I‘ve never heard of while browsing. It is particularly joyful, then, when I find a new gem just waiting for me on a library shelf and this was one of this books.

A sparse and heartache of a graphic novel about a young girl‘s flight from war-torn Syria and the strength she pulls from the memory of her mother and of the long-ago Syrian warrior princess Zenobia.

I read it once and immediately read it again.

Wonder Woman: Rise of the Olympian | Gail Simone, Geoff Johns

Genocide has come for Wonder Woman and her allies, even stealing her most precious weapon. Only death and destruction can follow. Meanwhile, Zeus creates a new race of men, making the Amazons obsolete and undercutting Wonder Woman‘s purpose in life. Lots of epic battle scenes in this one.

Ends of the Earth | Gail Simone

Pickpick

Wonder Woman journeys to the ends of the earth, literally, in an action packed story featuring Beowulf and a bloodthirsty demon lord. All the while fighting under an increasing ruthlessness that threatens her core values. The second story is much lighter fare, featuring a disastrous Wonder Woman movie, with plenty of cheeky, meta references.
