Part sociological study, part advice, and a huge part of humor. Ansari's take on relationships in today's world with an infinite number of options opened my eyes a little bit. I only wish that with all the casual one nighters, there was at least one mention of std prevention. Maybe, I am a prude or Dr. Varghese is still influencing my thinking.

readordierachel I don't think it's prudish at all to want STD prevention mentioned. Looking out for sex partners' health is sexy! 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Not prudish at all, but practical and smart. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘ll admit, I wanted to read this when it came out, but after a #MeToo story about him pressuring a date for sex...I just couldn‘t read it after that. So I‘m finding the lack of STD prevention discussed, confirming my bad opinion on how he treats partners. ☹️ 2y

Butterfinger Oh @Riveted_Reader_Melissa if I had known that I wouldn't have read it at all. I did get the feeling that he is one of those comedians that make fun of other people to get a laugh. So even though the study was informative, I was put off by his humor and now I have a bad opinion of him too. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Butterfinger Sorry, I didn‘t want to ruin it for you. 2y
Butterfinger @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I am glad you told me. I was teetering on the edge. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Butterfinger It‘s sad, but we‘ve been trained to disregard our instincts. 2y

Do I call? Do I text? Do I send a Facebook message? Do I send up a smoke signal? How does one do that? Will I set my rented house on fire? How embarrassed will I be when I have to tell the home's owner, actor James Earl Jones, that I burned his house down trying to send a smoke signal?

Page 2 - I am going to love this book. #Nonfiction21 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa

bibliobliss I loved the audiobook!! 2y

A really well told quest of a great granddaughter‘s determination to reunite her great grandfather‘s paintings that were separated & scattered during WWII. Moshe Rynecki vividly & painstakingly painted Jewish daily life in Poland from the early 1900‘s until his deportation to the Warsaw Ghetto in 1940. A truly heart filled memoir. #Pop21 #AboutArt #Nonfiction21 #AboutFamily #Booked21 #ContainsPhotographs

I have a feeling 25 years ago, when this book was originally published, it must have been considered groundbreaking. A new blend of history, investigative reporting and personal experiences all told in the first person narrative. The agonizing recounting of a mountain climb gone terribly wrong. I was completely captivated by the events before, during & after the ordeal. I never considered how much money and ego is at stake amongst the guides👇🏼

Cinfhen And don‘t get me started on the horrible treatment and exploitation of the Sherpa. 🤬So glad I finally picked up this book for #ReadingAsia2021 #Nepal #pop21 #BestsellerFrom1990s #NonFiction21 #SomethingAboutNature (edited) 2y
alisiakae I loved this book when I first read if! Haven‘t read a Krakauer book in years 🤔 2y
AlaMich And I think it‘s all even worse now than it was then, in terms of how many climbers they allow, the amount of trash and debris left behind, and the exploitation of the Sherpas. 2y

Velvetfur Wow.... I think I'll have to read this book this year. Great review 👍🏻 2y
Cinfhen I definitely recommend this book @Velvetfur it‘s good!! I‘m thinking of trying this one next @4thhouseontheleft 2y
Cinfhen That makes me so sad @AlaMich you‘re probably right 😢 2y
BarbaraBB Under de Banner is shocking and fantastic. I was completely obsessed by the LDS Church afterwards (when I visited Salt Lake City last year). 2y
Cinfhen I‘m excited to read it @BarbaraBB 2y
Kalalalatja I really like Krakauer, so he will definitely be on my 2021 reading list 🙌 2y
Cinfhen Would totally work for #setoutdoors @Kalalalatja 😁How was work today???? 2y
Kalalalatja It was great, but I‘m so tired due to all the new people and information 😅 I have a good feeling, though, and I can‘t wait till I have settled in 👍 2y

Cinfhen I forgot you love this one too @britt_brooke it‘s the perfect blend of first person narrative and history of Everest and mountain climbing 🧗‍♂️ 2y
MittenGirlPeach It‘s such a fabulous book; the first time I read it I reread it immediately. Nonfiction that reads like fiction. 2y
Traci1 I just borrowed this one from hoopla. I've been wanting to read it for a while now. 2y
Cinfhen It‘s SO GOOD @MittenGirlPeach @Traci1 I‘m happy I went with audio / it‘s like the author is personally recounting his story with me 2y
