To understand the North, a good starting point is the cabinet of wonders of Ole (short for Olaf) Worm (1588–1654), a professor of medicine in Copenhagen, one of the founders of Scandinavian archaeology, and a royal antiquary of the Dano-Norwegian Realm.

This is my #LMPBC read for May and I am very much behind. Sorry @persephone1408 and @Meshell1313

May is a wild month for me, but now that we‘re wrapping up the end of the school year things are settling down and I‘ll be able to get back into reading!

persephone1408 Its fine @kimmypete1 keep it as long as you need to! 1d
kimmypete1 @persephone1408 thanks! I have started it so at least that‘s going for me! 1d
Meshell1313 Can‘t wait to see what you think! I‘ve loved all the books- thanks for the excellent picks! 🧡🤗 13h

I'm looking the rabbit in the eye when the lights suddenly go out. With my left hand I squeeze the tube of industrial-strength glue, with my right I hold the screwdriver, and I listen.
