This is the first book for my start of the classics. Having a cup of five roses and diving in.

Lcsmcat I loved this one! It‘s so much more than any of the movie versions could show. Enjoy! 3w

So I got sucked in, I went in fully prepared to only choose one book since I don‘t have as much time to read and then I chose 3 books 🤦🏽‍♀️ #botm

lele1432 I think I will be getting these exact 3 books lol 3w
TheBookStacker @lele1432 I almost only got the first 2 but then I read the description for the other and I just couldn‘t say no, I love books about nature. 3w

I would say this is required reading for everyone, not just for me for graduate school. Currently listening to today‘s episode of The Daily about the Amazon rainforest and reading this. Making a list of habits I can change in my daily life to reduce my carbon footprint.

First book for graduate school. To those who are unaware, I‘m currently working as an archaeologist but decided it was time for me to go back to school and get my masters in Environmental Science and try to save the world instead of just preserving our past (which is incredibly rewarding in and of itself) but there needs to be a world in which people can appreciate the past first.

Aimeesue Y daughter is an Environmental Sciences major, too. So proud of all you people who want to save the Earth and it's creatures. ❤️ 1mo

One week until I start graduate school, and I have essentially spent all my time between binge watching tv shows and binge reading books. I‘m so excited for this one, hoping it‘s a scary as I‘ve heard because I‘m in the mood for something spooky! (Also this could be the fastest I‘ve ever received my #botm box)

Wrapped up a successful trip to Key West for the Hemingway Days festival. It was hot and wonderful and I wish I never had to leave.

Sorry I‘ve been MIA for awhile, I had a vacation home to Ohio for my birthday/a family wedding and didn‘t have a lot of time to post. I did finish 2 books while home as well as order my #botm box! Loved the selections for July! (I also added on Little Darlings)

Reviewsbylola They had two selections that I‘m really excited about! Three Women was one of them! 3mo

I just got this book because I‘ve been on a low key late night insomnia binge of Ripper and I wanted to know more about the victims themselves. I am taking recommendations for books that are more strictly about the ripper himself. My book model for this evening is a very sleepy Ginny.
