This one tells of the author‘s return to the places she knew as a child, close to the ever-moving #Borderline between Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece.

A friend of mine read this years ago and thought it was such an amazing story..

In 1959, a group of experienced hikers set out in the Russian aural Mountains. Months later, their bodies were discovered #frozen and in such an odd and mysterious way that so many theories abound. I know I want to read this, though something tells me I‘d have to read it in the daylight, since some theories are a little unsettling. #Movember

Hooked_on_books I have this and you‘ve made me want to move it up the TBR. 2d
valeriegeary Oh my gosh! A friend was telling me about this incident when we were hiking in the woods! I have to read this book! 2d

A Canticle for Leibowitz | Walter M. Miller

This sci-fi classic is still on my TBR, at the heart of it is an argument about the innate destructiveness of #humannature I'm not saying I completely agree with Miller, I'm not saying I don't either...

Why have I waited so long to read this book?? It‘s absolutely compelling. To read about the breakdown of a health care system in just a matter of days is horrifying. Hurricane Katrina was an unfathomable disaster but the lack of a plan for rescue is just mind boggling. All the praise to the nurses who showed what it means to be angels of mercy. #NonfictionNovember

Cinfhen Read it @AlaMich it‘s SO GOOD 6d
Chrissyreadit Oh! It‘s on my irl bookshelf waiting for me. 6d

emilyhaldi Such a stunning read isn‘t it?! 🤯 6d
AmyG @BarbaraBB I think of this, too, when I think of Katrina. Amazing book. And yes, read Zeitoun. (edited) 6d
Cinfhen I‘ve read Zeitoun @BarbaraBB @AmyG and it was very good but this book is on a whole different planet! It‘s something you can never imagine. Ever!!Bump it up your TBR @Chrissyreadit it‘s definitely in your wheelhouse 6d

LeahBergen I found this to be such a harrowing read! (edited) 6d
AprilMae I bought this book after I came home from New Orleans. I went on a guided tour and my lovely guide told us about this book. It's on my TBR 6d
Cinfhen I really recommend reading this book or listening on audio @AprilMae @Kalalalatja @BarbaraBB @KarenUK so many ethical issues to think about! It‘s great for bookclub discussion 6d
Cinfhen I must have been living in a bubble @LeahBergen because I don‘t recall the ordeal at Memorial Hospital. I remember hearing about the deplorable conditions at the NO stadium and all the riots and looting. 6d
arubabookwoman There were also several nursing homes that had issues similar to those at Memorial. I believe some of the owners were criminally prosecuted. I think the book may have touched on this. (edited) 6d
Insightsintobooks This sounds good. 5d
Cinfhen I‘m still on Day 5 although I think I logged 8 hours of listening time already @arubabookwoman but I‘m curious to see what other instructions are mentioned when I get to part 2/ Aftermath 5d
Cinfhen It‘s excellent @Insightsintobooks 5d
IamIamIam I stacked this. It looks really intense!!! 5d
Cinfhen I can‘t stop listening @IamIamIam so many moral and ethical dilemmas. I wish I read this for bookclub. 4d

We Are Called to Rise | Laura McBride

Las Vegas, city of opposites, where glamour and wealth seem never far away from poverty and harshness.
A refugee boy, a lonely wife, a war veteran with PTSD, another veteran in rehab, and a social worker. I‘d like to read more about each of them.
But this book is about the tragedy that interweaves their storylines. A tragedy that represents the major themes of current times. It is sad with a glimpse of hope. I loved it.

A day late, but wanted to post my #BookReport! It was a really great reading week in terms of quality. Finished 3 books, may finish Salt Slow tonight, & started the tagged book for #NFNov. #TIL diabetes may have been mentioned as far back as the 6th century B.C. by Sushruta, a Hindu physician who described the characteristic sweet urine of those afflicted.

#GratefulReads #characteryoulovetohate
I won‘t go so far as to say I ‘hate‘ but the protagonist, Dr Marc Schlosser, is truly a disgusting and detestable character. If you‘ve read the book, you‘ll know what I mean. If you haven‘t, read it and perhaps you‘ll grow to hate him.

Megabooks You‘ve intrigued me! #stacked 1w
