Taking the kids to the library, I remembered a couple of books recommended during some DragonCon panels. Knowing me, it'll take forever to read.

When I was born, the Apollo missions were coming to an end, but the Space Race captured my attention. I found Ms Teitel's YouTube channel a few months ago (Srsly, how did I not know about this?) The library called after a couple of weeks of waiting. Gonna crack it open while my sick kid naps. 🚀

I loved this book as a kid. My dad loved reading it to me. He could probably still recite it, 40 years later.

I grew up in a funeral home, so the stories about the death industry brought back lots of memories. We try to hide our mortality and death when it should be a part of our life. This book starts to make the idea of our deaths more comfortable topic of discussion.

Took four attempts, and I almost finished it (the 77 page masturbatory speech). Originally, I wanted to like it, but I came to realize how poorly written and how flimsy its ideology and characters truly are.

The better the vaccine, the more abstract the disease it targets becomes.
