"But I thank Mother Nature I shall not be alive in fifty years time. When a government begins to fear the mob, it is as much as to say it fears itself."

I'm cold and wet from head to toe but I got to see Jeff Tweedy tonight and now I fully intend to dry off, warm up, and burrow down with this memoir. If you get a chance to see any author events at the Free Library of Philadelphia, do it.

ErinGoBragh1011 Ugh I am still bitter about the fact that I had to miss out on this. 4mo

"That is one of the many wonders of the sea - that the garbage and bilge water of ten thousand ships is dumped into it every day, and the sea is never dirty." Oh 1940, if only you knew...

This is absolutely fantastic for sci-fi fans and newbies alike. While the focus is music of the 1970s, film and literature def get their due. I can't stop recommending it (and I def need to slow it down because pub date is June and it's only April!)

Gone With the Wind? Seriously - what movie?! Alien? Avatar? Star Wars?

Caterina Avatar! Although technically Gone with the Wind grossed more when adjusted for inflation. 2y

Fascinating and strangely inspiring. Add this to your list not only if you like natural history but also if you are a fan of books like Garbage Land, Gone Tomorrow, or Waste and Want.

There is no single "cookbook" that has been more influential in empowering me to embrace and enjoy the process of making food than this one. A book I read/re-read constantly and one I press into everyone's hands (well, a second copy - keep your paws off mine!)

An amazing set of personal, educational, and intellectual essays. From collecting butterflies, to how we get mail, to American flag fact and legend, (and much more) Fadiman shares a little of herself and tidbits of history you didn't get in school. Just an amazing read whether you read the essays one at a time over the course of years, or blow through them all in one sittting.
