Sick pupper, cone of shame & no work = day of non stop reading.

This book was so fun. Great little micro history.

Being from an economically depressed small town made me relate to this book so much. I'm listening to what this guy has to say, a little more everyday....

I think I might have hyped myself up too much for this one. It was too dry for me. I found a lot of the details unnecessary for the story. Was hoping to get a little more info but unfortunately there wasn't anything new for me.

bio_chem06 @Zelma I'm loving it. This one is a little slow starting but I'm still enjoying it. I enjoyed Reunion more, it's my type of fiction though. 2y

I know everyone says their library is the best, but I think mine is REALLY the best. Since the hubs' cholesterol is out of control due to genetics, we are opting for a plant based diet to try to lower those levels. Looking overwhelmed at my options, librarian Jeff came to the rescue without hesitation and got me started on these amazing cookbooks. They are perfect AND hilarious!

Essentials of Medical Physiology | K Sembulingam, Prema Sembulingam
post image

My handle has been around a long time. I graduated undergrad with a degree in biochem, so I could go to medical school, however, at the last minute I decided it wasn't for me and I dropped out. Whenever I use this handle, I get, "so I take it you are a scientist? Haha". But I'm just Susan, an exercise physiologist working in non-invasive cardiology. I do a lot of stress testing & EKG interpretation. But yeah, I do still love science. #litsyhandle

Kaye Sounds like a cool job ! 2y
Chelleo Yep, I assumed you were a scientist too 👩‍🔬 2y
bio_chem06 @Chelleo haha! It doesn't leave you to think much of anything else! @Kaye thanks! I love my job, I'm very lucky. 2y

I didn't know what to think about this series. I was enjoying it, but was still on the fence. Then the last book just blew my face off & made all the previous books worth it. LOVED IT!

@britt_brooke Look what I'm reading, have you read it? My husband found it on the shelf at the library & brought it home for me. The person before made notes in the margins, almost seems like fact checking. Underlining passages and timeline math. If I see anything interesting, I'll take picks of the notes. I just wonder who did it! So interesting!

britt_brooke Ooh, I haven‘t read this one! Good on hubby for grabbing it for you. That‘s so interesting about the notes. Sounds like it could‘ve been a member or maybe former member? 2y
britt_brooke And thanks for tagging me! 2y
bio_chem06 @britt_brooke I'm not sure about being a member or not, it could've been a book club read maybe, who knows. I just thought it was not your typical book to make notes on, which made me think member too! I'm really liking it. Its a good one. 2y
britt_brooke @bio_chem06 I‘m definitely going to read it sometime. 👍🏻 2y

The only draw back to this book...I personally don't like short story collections. However, the few that I read were great & I would recommend this book to anyone.

I really wanted to get more information about this event, but this book was lacking. The wiki page held my attention more & got exactly what I needed without all the extra info that seemed irrelevant. Life is too short for bad books.....

bio_chem06 @Kaye he does pretty well, but I habe to have all the ingredients and instructions. If he had to do something on a whim, it ends up being a disaster. Ha! @Zelma we did that a lot last week. I had to try harder this week, haha 2y
