Ode to Brick and Mortar, Independent Bookstores 💛 My heart aches for the giddiness of happening upon dollar carts on bustling streets, people stopping to trace spines to see if, perhaps, there’s a title for them. I yearn for the wandering of bookstores, scouring the shelves for books new and used. Another title to add to my teetering tower of unread books, ever-growing. The possibilities contained within the pages of a book—the spine not yet creased. The tingling feeling you get in your toes when you see another person pick up a favorite. The surprise felt when reading a back cover and an employee stops: “O! I love that book. I sobbed. I recommend it to everyone I know.” Patrons reading on the floor, back against the stacks, deciding if they want to continue reading on their couch. Yet, here I sit, browsing digital shelves in an attempt to keep these gathering grounds open long after this pandemic ends, refusing to let doors close on the nation’s independent bookstores.

I read today that people who read books for at least 3.5 hours a week live longer then those that don't. Here's to living long lives! ⁣

A throwback to my last visit to @kramerbooks a few weeks ago. I’m definitely missing my regular visits to my favorite bookstores. Local bookshops just have this magical feel to them—from the amazing staff, to the spontaneous conversations with fellow shoppers, and of course the books. It is more than a just a place to buy books. It’s a community.
.
Although necessary, it’s sad to see these stores close right now. On the plus side though, we can still support our favorite bookstores through @librofm as well as online orders.

We did a thing yesterday: tried out @kramerbooks postmates delivery 🚚📚 it actually came in under an hour!
.
We bought a book per person and it was a good choice because we would’ve argued over it 😂 (mug is from a couple of years back- not sure if they still sell this particular type)

Ryszard Kapuscinski is one of my favorite authors, and this book captures the sort of author, and man that he was.  Ryszard lived in Poland during the time of Soviet occupation.  Poland's borders were closed, and we was not free to just pick up and travel as he wished.  He dreamed of going somewhere far away, like maybe Czechoslovakia (which borders Poland). Then he was appointed as a foreign correspondent.  This book is about those first years.

Is first assignment takes him to India.  He doesn't know the culture.  He doesn't speak the language.  Next is China.  Then the Congo.  Then Iran.  Same thing for all of these places.  With a copy of Herotodus The Histories as his only companion, Kapuscinski makes his was through what must have been a dizzying array of experiences, recording what he saw and did.

He devotes a large part of the book to sharing some of the stories found in The Histories, and then shares his commentary.  Sometimes I think he has read The Histories before, because he is so insightful.  Sometimes I think he is reading the book for the first time, because he seems anxious, at times, to return to the book and continue reading.

You get a real sense of just how precarious life, and history, can be.  Sharing a story from Herotodus, you learn that the simple act of Scithians hunting a rabbit, while Darius, a Persian king, was demanding their surrender, likely changed the course of modern history.

In many ways, Kapuscinski is a modern day Horotodus.  In all of his books I have read, he describes the world as one would seeing it anew.

A great read....all of his books are.

This was a great read.  Kate Moore is a great author that combines true to history accounts with riveting prose.  Until I read this, I had no idea that this chapter in American labor even happened.  The story is about a number of women who painted radium on watch faces to make them glow in the dark.  They licked the brushes to keep the paint lines thin.  This paint was killing them. 
The story is about the coverup that happened when it was known that radium was in fact very toxic.  Your body thinks that radium is calcium and tries to put it in your bones.

The resulting case to get justice for these women has changed US labor laws.

My only hope, besides that you will enjoy the book, is that Kate Moore will continue writing them.

I have been fascinated with falconry since I was a kid.  Some people get into falconry as a way to rehabilitate an injured bird.  This true life account is the author rehabilitating a perigrine falcon named Dolly, as he followed the natural migration of the birds she would normally hunt.

I got to meet Dan, while travelling out west once, and I also met Ernie, who is also written about.  At the time he was working with a prairie falcon.  Not only was this a great day for me, but my granddaughter  is also enjoying these books.  Great read.

I love books.  I do most of my reading in the wintertime, because I am outside nearly every day from March through November.  I have decided that occassionally I would post reviews of books I have enjoyed reading. 
I am a scientist.  Because my reading is a diversion, you will find that a vast majority are history books. This is an exception.The author posits that chronic disease that allows you to survive to adulthood must have had some advantage somewhere, in the history of the human race (this is summarized nearly in 3 paragraphs on pages 3-4). I'm sure there is probably some controversy with this, but reading the book gives you a real sense of how your body works.  In the first chapter that deals with hemochromatosis, you learn what your body does when it is fighting an infection. 
The author also uses language  that is understood by everyone.  You dont need to be a doctor to understand it, otherwise I wouldn't be posting it today.  Great read.

I'm so excited to share that throughout the month of March, you can purchase my books at @kramerbooks to donate to @aobfound !

An Open Book Foundation brings authors, illustrators, and their books to DC-area students in low-income settings to nurture their love of reading.  When I did an AOB visit a couple years ago, I LOVED seeing the kids' excitement at knowing that no one would be left out--that each and every one of them would be getting their very own book to take home. I'll be doing some (free of charge) school visits with @aobfound in April, and you can contribute toward all the kids getting their own free copies of my books by donating them through @kramerbooks. Yay!

I'll also be doing a storytime at @kramerbooks on March 22nd at 11:00 am. (I'll post more about that separately soon!)

Here are my purchases from #kramerbooks the other day. They look really good. I started reading American Overdose yesterday. The font is pretty small so I may be reading it for a while. A Well Behaved Woman is about Alva Vanderbilt and sounds so interesting! ⁣

Today I actually left my desk for a lunch break and went to my favorite spot in DC- #kramerbooksandafterwords !!⁣
⁣
𝐊𝐫𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 is a well-known, cozy, unique book shop in DuPont Circle. Not only do they sell all kinds of books and bookcessories but they have a cafe and bar inside too. Can you ask for more?⁣
⁣
I love the layout of the store. There’s a separate room for kids/young adults and it has an almost library feel to it. There’s always a few kids sitting in the corners reading while their parents shop. ⁣
⁣
The staff are always so friendly and available- asking if you need help. They also have a staff picks selection, which I really enjoy. ⁣
⁣
Stay tuned to see my purchases! 
If you are a book lover and visiting DC, make sure to take a trip here. ⁣

Dinner date at a restaurant INSIDE of a bookstore. With live jazz. And black coffee. Then bookshop browsing at midnight. ✨⁣
⁣
It felt like quite an adventure being in a bookstore that late! They stay open until 3am on weekends and I WISH this existed back home. ⁣
⁣
Truly one of the best days. I savored every moment and am so grateful we got to spend this special time together 💕⁣

Who has read Things in Jars? What did you think? It’s different from my typical read, but I’m intrigued. One, the cover is stunning, and two, there are mermaids 🧜‍♀️!
.
Synopsis:

Bridie Devine—female detective extraordinaire—is confronted with the most baffling puzzle yet: the kidnapping of Christabel Berwick, secret daughter of Sir Edmund Athelstan Berwick, and a peculiar child whose reputed supernatural powers have captured the unwanted attention of collectors trading curiosities in this age of discovery.
.
Winding her way through the labyrinthine, sooty streets of Victorian London, Bridie won’t rest until she finds the young girl, even if it means unearthing a past that she’d rather keep buried. Luckily, her search is aided by an enchanting cast of characters, including a seven-foot tall housemaid; a melancholic, tattoo-covered ghost; and an avuncular apothecary. But secrets abound in this foggy underworld where spectacle is king and nothing is quite what it seems.
.
Blending darkness and light, history and folklore, Things in Jars is a spellbinding Gothic mystery that collapses the boundary between fact and fairy tale to stunning effect and explores what it means to be human in inhumane times.

I probably won't be the person your father or your friends hoped for.🎩⚔️
Without a doubt, I'll be the girl your ex-boyfriend will hate the most, but I don't care what they think about it, because maybe I'll be that girl who will give you back your smile and the taste of life.🍃🍀
So go ahead and accompany me in my dreams and learn my words, because one day it will be with them that you will please another.🌬️💕

Probablemente no sea la persona que tu padre o tus amigas esperaban.🎩⚔️
Sin lugar a dudas, seré la chica que tu ex novio odiará más, pero no me importa lo que piensen al respecto, porque tal vez seré esa chica que te devolverá tu sonrisa y el sabor a la vida.🍃🍀
Así que adelante, acompáñame en mis sueños y aprende mis palabras, porque un día será con ellos que complacerás a otra.🌬️💕

And, on the same note as my previous post, some titles from home, in Washington DC. The pictures are from the end of November, but I realized we need to take things easier here and be more playful!
