#weeklyforecast #oldmanedition

This week‘s library haul for the elderly father. He thinks he has already read Sailing Alone Around the World though, so I may be starting to repeat books! Dragonfly is about a crisis on the MIR space station - he‘s excited to read that one. Plus the classic Beryl Markham memoir and a travel book by a palaeontologist. 🤞🤞

TrishB Good ones 👍🏻 1mo

Airman presents an exciting story about unfair imprisonment, learning to adapt to bad situations, and innovation. You can anticipate interesting characters and daring escape attempts in this novel. Anyone interested in aeronautics or old diving equipment will likely enjoy this one as well. The story's setting gives it a steampunk-like feeling. #airplane #divingbell #prisonescapes

A Woggle of Witches | Adrienne Adams

3.5/5⭐ A pic on Instagram hammered my memory of this book I had completely forgotten about. Naturally I immediately checked it out from the library. The narrative doesn't translate as well for an adult audience (not that a kid's book necessarily should). But all the kudos for the art and colors, the idea of witches sleeping in hammocks among the trees, and the idea of witches being utterly terrified of kids in Halloween costumes.

As someone who loves Dystopian novels and Peter Heller‘s writing, I was a little disappointed.

Suet624 Oh shoot. That‘s too bad. 2mo

When my nephew was 3, he loved this book. It features a penguin and a polar bear who are friends and the polar bear helps the penguin to see that he's awesome just as he is. 🐧

One of my favorite books of all time on sale today from Early Bird Books! Brilliant woman, brilliant writer.

This book was published in 2011, it is also a biography. This book shows the amazing life of Amelia Earhart, but also struggles that she had to face through her life as well. The story tells why she cut her hair, and explains some of the records she broke.
I enjoyed this book, and the ways the book was written and explained. The different types of terminology throughout the book are great ways for readers to learn more about flying.

em_lemo My favorite line throughout the book is,
“He wanted the flyer to inspire the female student to take up careers in such a male dominated field as agriculture and engineering.“
I liked this because it showed that people, men, were ready for some change within the world when it came to the jobs that females could take part in. It is amazing to think about how these people trusted her and wanted her although she did not have teaching experience.

Finally finished this one today; it‘s very dry in places, and a little repetitive, but has some very important learning points for anyone wanting to become a pilot. #TIL that I don‘t have the typical pilot personality, but that‘s not a bad thing, as the typical pilot personality can often lead to poor decision-making - there‘s a fine line between being adventurous and being a thrill-seeker...
