I read some more of this book tonight and I started coloring a new picture. I‘m using my Stylus Pen that I bought recently. I like it. I‘m having this book being read to me using Netgalley‘s Read Aloud feature. It‘s a robotic voice reading the book but it‘s great for nonfiction books. I was going to DNF this book but it‘s gotten good now. It‘s a nonfiction book but it‘s written like fiction.

What a line. (Anne Olivier Popham)

‘Listen to this for a thank-you note,‘ she tells Lettice, finding Wells‘s letter. “Why do you attack me in this way? Is it some perverted jealousy or some insane political machinations. Read my early works you shit.”‘ Lettice chuckles.
‘Poor man,‘ she says. ‘Probably thinks you were trying to kill him.‘
‘Yes,‘ Eileen says. ‘Death by plum cake.‘

ChaoticMissAdventures Eileen seems like she was such a witty woman . I think you can tell from this one. 1d

This is the first biography I‘ve read about Lord Byron. I liked how the author organized the book around letters so one can hear Byron‘s voice. He lived quite a wild life!!!

Librarybelle Oh! I‘m stacking this! 2d
dabbe He was “mad, bad, and dangerous to know!“ 🤩 Beautiful puzzle, too! 💙🩵💙 2d
ChaoticMissAdventures I haven't read about him specifically but he creeps into so much about that time (especially things about Mary Shelly) and he sounds absolutely wild. How interesting! 2d

I started this book. I‘m not sure if I‘m going to like this book or not because I didn‘t like History class when I was in school. I thought it was boring. I still think American History is boring. This book is written like a fictional story. It doesn‘t seem like nonfiction. I‘m 60 pages into this but I don‘t feel invested yet. I‘m feeling bored. I‘m going to keep reading this but if it doesn‘t get better then I‘m going to stop reading.

3⭐️ Jane Ellen Harrison was a Hellenist, a famous scholar during her time. What an interesting charater! I would love to have her profession if I could do everything all over again 🤪

These anxieties of authenticity exist because when words go inside a reader, they make magic. They fizz and pop and conjure. They change minds. Your words may cast a spell on the reader but they cannot be felt to be a con-artist's trick, for then the reader will feel de- frauded. All the reader wants is for the avatar sitting behind the table to match their inner picture.

I am not a big non-fiction reader, so this is taking ages. But also it‘s pretty tough going, watching these Australian nurses suffer as prisoners of war. But also inspirational and educational. #readingandreviewing #biography #worldwarII
