I really enjoyed this memoir by one of my favorite comedic actors, Gene Wilder. I learned a lot listening to this, for instance the fact that after filming “Young Frankenstein”, he and Teri Garr briefly dated (#TIL), along with the fact that he was married four times. I would recommend this for anyone who wants an in-depth look into his life and his work. #NFNov

This morning while listening to this before work, I learned that the movie “The Frisco Kid” was partly filmed in my home state, specifically in Greeley, CO. A much better trivia fact than the typical one that most Coloradans know, “Greeley smells like cows”. #TIL #NFNov

Groucho Marx once said: “Outside of a dog, a book is man‘s best friend. Inside of a dog it‘s too dark to read.” Ripley has apparently decided that I‘ve spent too much time reading and it‘s time I focus on him. #DogsofLitsy #DogMom

Crazy Brave | Joy Harjo
post image
Pickpick

I‘m sad to say that I did not know of Joy Harjo until after she was named Poet Laureate of the US, the footer Native American to be named so. Since her being named Poet Laureate, I have wanted to read something by her, thus I was excited to listen to her memoir in her own voice. I learned so much about Harjo, for instance her stepfather was abusive and kicked her and her siblings out of the house over the years. #TIL Next, read more Harjo #NFNov

The Apollo theater in Harlem, NY is one that I think anyone who knows anything about music has heard of. I know I grew up knowing about the importance of The Apollo in Black History. This was a great documentary and I actually learned a lot of things. #TIL (today I learned) that the Billie Holiday made her debut at The Apollo and she sang “Strange Fruit” #NFNov

After reading two fictional accounts of the Lorena Hickok and Eleanor Roosevelt relationship ship, I was intrigued to read a nonfiction accounting of their relationship. This book not only covers their relationship and friendship, but the history of the periods in which they lived and were active in. #TIL (Today I learned)was that Eleanor had same sexual relationships when she was in school. Would recommend the audiobook. #NFNov

Such a fun little book covering the fashion of Queen Elizabeth II‘s throughout her lifetime. One of the many things I learned from this little gem of a book is that she abolished the ritual of aristocratic and unmarried young married women being presented to her at court as seen in so many movies of the Victorian Era. #TIL (Today I Learned) #NFNov

This book was recommended by Loki: Where Mischief Lies author Mackenzi Lee and I‘m so glad she mentioned it. This was a fascinating book that examined four women and the roles they play in true crime, for every crime has its: Detective, Victim, Attorney and Killer. One of the key things I learned from this book is that there are more women in the field of forensics science than men (TIL, Today I Learned) A must for true crime fans. #NFNov

Went with my Mom today to see the Monet exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. Was a great exhibit, made even more so because we did the docent led tour which gave us some additional insight to his life and the paintings. I learned quite a lot about him that I didn‘t know. For instance today I learned, #TIL that Monet lived to be 86 years old and left behind over 2000 pieces of work. Art tour during #NFNov for the win, although I know I may not count

The Blood of Emmett Till | Timothy B. Tyson

The heinous murder of young Emmett Till is a crime which continue to resonates in the U.S. to this day, for despite the Civil Rifghts Movement, the U.S. still has and sows the seeds of racism and injustice. Today I learned that the death of Emmett Till not only garnered nationwide coverage, but worldwide coverage as well. Many foreign countries were sadly not surprised by what happened or the outcome of the trial. #NFNOV #nonfictionnovember

This was a fun month and I had fun taking part in my first team competition on Litsy with #TeamStoker for #Scarathlon.
1. I‘m currently reading The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh.
2. My last 5 ⭐️ read was Wraith by Joe Hill which I read last night. (3 of the books I read this month were 5 ⭐️ reads actually).
3. I managed to read 14 books this year
4. Up next I‘ll be taking part in Nonfiction November, so I think I‘ll read In the Heart of the Sea first

The first time I read Dracula, I wasn‘t a fan. Since this was the book chosen for the #TeamStoker #DraculaBuddyRead I decided I would give the audiobook a try. I so wish the full cast recording that Audible did had existed when I was in college. I enjoyed Dracula so much better the second time around. I highly recommend this audio recording. #scarathlon +11 pts

I remember first hearing about this book when Paige McKenzie appeared on the Today Show in 2015 to talk about it and the YouTube videos that inspired the book. Four years later I finally picked it up. Started off a bit slow but the action built and it got to the point where I couldn‘t put it down.

Ever since first learning about the Chernobyl accident when I was in high school, I have been both fascinated and horrified with it. Having watched HBO‘s mini-series Chernobyl earlier in the year, I found myself wanting to delve even more into this sad story, enter Midnight in Chernobyl. This book recounts not only the disaster but the aftermath of it. Highly recommend on audio. #TeamStoker #scarathlon +6 pts
