A very interesting book about the assault on the democracy of the United States that has been going on for years and is only getting worse. It‘s a very well researched book that the author is very knowledgeable about and has researched for years. I recommend it to anyone that is interested in keeping or at least trying to not lose anymore then we already have. For these people, their freedoms require the removal of the freedoms of others.

Wow! This was an incredible read/listen. It took me a long time to get through but it was so worth it. I had the hardest time understanding how the “family values” folks could behave and vote en masse the way that they do… but this helps provide some insight on DJT‘s rise to power. This was recommended by Jen on #fundiefridays and is a 10/10 #book81of2022

KathyWheeler I‘ve had this book for awhile but haven‘t yet been able to bring myself to read it. 1d
Maria514626 Oooh! This sounds good! Well not *good*. I just finished the tagged book so I‘ll have to give myself a pause before picking it up. 1d

This book is absolutely gripping. It was also completely infuriating to read, not only for what happened during the AIDS epidemic, but how literally every single mistake is being repeated now with Covid (and monkeypox). Everyone should read this book, if you didn‘t read it back when it came out in 1988.

Amiable Oh my gosh, I read this a few years ago and was totally mesmerized. SUCH a good book! 1w
violabrain @Amiable It really is! This has been on my shelf for a while, so I‘m so glad I finally read it! (P.S. I see you live in Connecticut! I grew up in West Hartford!) (edited) 1w

Amiable @violabrain That is a huge change! Yikes. I wouldn‘t be able to handle the heat there. I can barely struggle through it when temps are in the 90s around here! 😖😀 5d
violabrain @Amiable Yeah, the heat is definitely my least favorite part of living here. I moved for a job, so it‘s not my first choice of places to live. Fortunately the extreme dryness tempers the heat. 90° with 5% humidity actually feels quite pleasant. :) 5d

Dated (pre-9/11) read on the problems of the post-Cold War phase. Some prescient given current events, some ... well, not especially prescient, but Kaplan's writing is usually deep and interesting enough.

I read this weeks ago and I forgot to post about it! Read for library #bookclub. I‘m currently reading her newest (tagged⬇️) which has me comparing the two. Young Jane Young is about Jane, bit of a Monica Lewinski-ish character, and the lives touched by her relationship with an older charismatic politician. Not everyone in book club enjoyed the various styles Zevin used—emails, choose your own adventure—but I liked it! We had tons to discuss!

Chelsea.Poole Zevin‘s newest I‘m currently reading: 1w
BooknerdsLife Sounds interesting 🙂 Love her current book & writing so much I'm going to read some of her older ones too. 1w
