The Fireman | Joe Hill

Late-night reading this #chunkster about a virus that threatens #AllThePeopleInTheWorld to spontaneously combust...what?! I'm reading this for my #HorrorPost bookclub #ScreamsByMail and this was selected by the lovely @GatheringBooks. I'm 300 pages in and enjoying it but I have to admit I'm sensing a few issues. A plot-driven absorbing read is just what I need to plough through my cold, though!

vivastory I hope you feel better soon! 1y
Samplergal I‘ve been listening to it. It‘s a long one for sure. I think some of it could have been edited out. Jmho 1y
Kalalalatja Feel better soon! 1y

I ❤️ salt! This book tells of the history of this magical mineral and how it has changed the life for #allthepeopleintheworld 🌎

LauraBeth I‘ve been wanting to read this forever 1y
Kalalalatja I‘m a big salt fan! #stacked 1y
Reviewsbylola You, @Meredith3 and @HotdogZanzabaar have a serious issue. I‘m pretty sure Brian told me the other day that you salt your food before you even taste it. 1y

My Story | Marilyn Monroe, Ben Hecht
post image

Monroe tells her story in her own words, providing intimate vignettes of her off-screen life, exposes her insecurities and negative self-perception. #Allthepeopleintheworld (well, at least the people in show business) seem to want a piece of her. ‘Lonely but vivacious, intelligent but confused—this is who Marilyn saw when she looked in the mirror.‘

Kalalalatja Her life seems so tragic 💔 1y
Smangela This was a lovely memoir - so tragic. I recommend the lifetime mini series about Marilyn Monroe too. I felt like the actress did an UNCANNY job portraying her. 1y

From Here to Eternity | Caitlin Doughty
post image

My #libraryhaul today fits perfectly with the #septemberdanes prompt #allthepeopleintheworld because we‘re all going to die, right? 💀

Caitlin Doughty travels around the world looking at death rituals from different culture. She also examines death culture and funereal practices in the US and how our “expensive, impersonal system fosters a corrosive fear of death.”

Kalalalatja This was so interesting! 1y
shellleigh33 Love the cover ❤️ 1y
Velvetfur Oohh that sounds fab, and so interesting! 1y

Balibee146 Had this on kindle since it came out... Looks so interesting... Moving up Mount TBR 1y
Cinfhen This book is meant to be excellent but I‘m scared it‘s gonna be too smart for me 1y
Factaddict73 Confirm...... This book is NOT gonna be too smart for you! The author puts the most unbelievable concepts in very simple terms, so just about anyone could absorb them. I have it on audio, and changed the ‘back‘ button to 60 seconds, so if the ideas come too strong and complex, I just back up and let them percolate a few more times.... eventually, it clears up— one thing though, this is sort of a slow read. Stop occasionally and just absorb it all. 11mo

#AllThePeopleInTheWorld made me think about how many people there are on this rather small planet and how are we going to feed this ever growing population.

#septemberdanes @Cinfhen @Kalalalatja

Kalalalatja It is a scary thought! 1y
