This was an interesting look into the attempted (but failed) assassination of Lincoln before he was to take office in his first term as President. One has got to wonder what the country would be like today if he was assassinated before taking office and if his successor would have set out to abolish slavery.

This was a great biography of Lincoln‘s life and presidency. It chronicles his election campaign against William Seward, the First Battle of Bull Run, abolishing slavery, and his assassination.

1. The only book I‘ve read that had an UR was The Woman in the Window. Not a fan, but I suppose if done correctly, it could add to a story.

2. Magnetic bookmarks. Now I understand the hype surrounding them.

3. This was the first series where I couldn‘t wait to read the next book. Plus, Riordan incorporates Greek mythology that doesn‘t bore the reader.

#Two4Tuesday

1. I stopped creating goals a couple years ago as it was just too much pressure to meet what I set. I find it much less burdensome when I can read/listen and not think about meeting a goal. So far this year, I‘ve read 10 books.

2. The tagged book. I read it as an ebook early last year and then I stopped reading it halfway through because I new I wanted to get it as a hardcover for Christmas. Definitely will be a 5 ⭐️ read

I‘m kind of regretting listening to this on audio. The narrator isn‘t the greatest in my opinion. The plot is a bit all over the place and there are too many characters to keep track of. I‘ll put this one on hiatus for awhile and maybe then I‘ll forget the narrator‘s voice. 🤞 If you‘re going to read this, then an ebook or physical copy is the way to go.

I was a little disappointed that I didn‘t end up liking this as much as I thought I would when all said and done. Though, I did like the dark, horror-ish descriptions! Plus, the narrator did a very good job reading this; most likely why I finished it. Nonetheless, I‘m intrigued what Giesbrecht writes next.

Would any of you be interested in the Twilight books? My older brother bought this set years ago and never read them. Still in excellent condition. I‘m asking for $30, but I‘m willing to negotiate. If interested, you can email me your address and send the money through PayPal; just search my name: David Riehl.

Truly a commendable effort for Rebecca Skloot to publish this and tell the story of Henrietta Lacks and her family on how scientists did research on her cells without consent. I liked that Skloot shed some light on the family drama and didn‘t make it all about Henrietta.

I can‘t believe it took me so long to read this! This should be required reading, even for high schoolers.

It‘s more me than it is the book, but I didn‘t really care for this to be honest. I had a hard time following the story and had the audiobook on as background “noise”, if you want to call it that. I was glad to have finally finished this.

This was an informative listen on how social epidemics start. I enjoyed listening about how children prefer to watch Blue‘s Clues than Sesame Street, the suicides of young Micronesian men, and the school shooting epidemic.

I just created a Pangobooks account! Thanks @wildwoodreads for sharing this app! This might become my new obsession and also my new way of buying used books.
I have a box full of books that I no longer want to keep/read so keep an eye out on there. I do have books that I bought from thrift stores and a library sale, so if the books are a little beat up, then it‘s from the previous owner(s). I take real damn good care of my books.

1. I can‘t say for certain. I haven‘t read too many older books to form an opinion yet. Although I will say, in a general sense, some books will be better than others.

2. I just read the book. I don‘t try and guess a plot line or anything of the sort. I like to be surprised.

1. I mainly read the blurb of the book to decide if I want to read/buy it.

2. This is probably my favorite autobiography I‘ve read (so far). If you do decide to listen to it on audio, I‘d recommend listening on one of the fastest speeds. The narrator almost sounds like Robin at times.

Has anyone applied for a digital library card at the New York Public Library? And do you need a physical card as well. Cause if so then I‘m not going to bother applying. Plus, it‘s nice to switch between two libraries if one has an ebook/audiobook that the other one doesn‘t.

At 70%, I‘m calling it quits with this one. I just can‘t get into the style of writing where there is almost an endless amount of paragraphs but not a lot of dialogue. I respect that one of the most famous authors in the world is writing a book on how to write, but if you‘re not planning on being an author, then this will kind of be a waste of time.
