"I grabbed my book and opened it up. I wanted to smell it. Heck, I wanted to kiss it. Yes, kiss it. That's right, I am a book kisser. Maybe that's kind of perverted or maybe it's just romantic and highly intelligent. "

⭐⭐⭐⭐
An excellent analysis of the '08 #financial collapse by one of my favorite authors. A little drier & slower paced than I expected.
Now it's time to check out the movie adaptation.

Fun, quick read. A good list of historical facts with a new perspective. Here are my #Top5 facts that I learned!
5) Roman politicians were stealing time.
4) Asia had an insane naval program in the 15th & 19th cent.
3) Tulips used to sell in Holland for $100K USD.
2) The Fax machine was invented in 1870.
1) Japan may not have been bombed if Japanese media hadn't misunderstood a single word!

Well written account of the impact silence had on society. The author focuses primarily on #prisons & #religious institutions (monestraiers, abbeys, etc.)
I have no problem with the writing or the research. The content and the writing style were not my cup of tea, so to speak.
It was worth a read through once. Slow pace.

The Law Is an Ass | Gyles Brandreth

A quick, fun read that records court cases, laws, and other political and judicial events.
Gave me a break from the lengthier titles I've been working through.
Only worth reading through once.

Beautifully written, well documented & researched account of America's lesser known history. The author does an excellent job of backing his claim that America has been and is an Empire all while expanding the reader's view of American foreign policy.

A sad, poetic tale from the German perspective on #WWI.
Well written account from a man who endured such tragedies personally. A sobering reminder of the horrors that #war thoughtlessly passes out.
The emotion is raw and palpable.

jenniferw88 I read a bit of nonfiction, and I know @Kaye reads a lot of true crime! 2mo
Kaye Thank you for the tag @jennifer88 😊. Yes I try to read mostly nonfiction. True crime, memoirs, books that are based on true events, etc. (edited) 2mo

A fantastic read for NBA nerds. A great mix of fan subjectivity & objective statistics.
