I've read three books so far. Goal is to read at least one a month but can obviously go past that.

Dopesick- Was a book that went into great detail about the opioid crisis in America. Very in depth book that allowed you to see why so many people who used Oxycontin ended up using heroin. 9/10

A Cold Day in Paradise. Typical Murder thriller. This was recommended by a teacher friend of mine and it did not disappoint. Dragged on a bit but had a pretty good ending. 8/10

The Reckoning by John Grisham- Grisham lately has been so hit or miss. This book, at least in my eyes, did not disappoint me at all. I loved it. It had a story that made you question the motives of a guy, hate him, then root for him because of his past and ended with an ending that made my jaw hit the floor. I would put it in the top 5 of his books in my eyes. 10/10

Amazing the secrets, dangers, and wonder that can still be found on our planet! That a journey to somewhere on our own planet can be harsher and more dangerous than a journey to the moon.

Also, I think I'm developing a reading problem. I wanted to read more books in 2019, and now I am reading books too fast. It has also really set back my comic book reading.
Just happened to catch something about this on TV in a show called "Museum Mysteries". It was maybe a 5 minute segment rife with inaccuracies, over exaggerations, and sensationalism. Made me chuckle.

2019 Book #6: "We Have The Technology: How Biohackers, Foodies, Physicians, and Scientists Are Transforming Human Perception One Sense At a Time" by Kara Platoni.

I picked this book by going to the "science" section of the library and judging the books by their covers. Overall, there were some interesting chapters and thoughts to be had, and I don't REGRET reading it..... but... I guess I see now why they tell you not to judge books from their covers. Also, the font in the book was very small, which bugged me.

2019 Book #7: "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

I didn't really care for it. There were pretty much 0 likeable characters in the book, and felt like no real purpose to it.

Read Garth Ennis's The Crossed.

Serious question: What in the actual fuck is wrong with Garth Ennis?

Also, started reading Fire and Blood. Reads like a wikipedia article so far.

I didn't finish this book when I tried to read it (I was like 21) had to keep referring back to the family tree of people with the same name and got confused...

I kept flipping back too, but then at a certain point I just started to flip back less because it was like "Ehhh, who cares who they are related to"

2019 Book #8: "The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water" by Charles Fishman.

I really enjoyed this book. I feel like I have a deeper respect and understanding of water now. It is the most important thing on the planet, and people tend to take it for granted and largely ignore it... which is leading to a lot of trouble, and has the potential to lead to even more!

2019 Book #9: "Behind Enemy Lines: The True Story of a French Jewish Spy in Nazi Germany", the biography of Marthe Cohn. I saw her speak a few months ago, so I had to read her book (especially since she was very old and quiet with an accent and I couldn't understand everything she was saying)

I always struggle with reading or watching anything that deals with the holocaust, because it is some of the darkest depths of humanity possible, and hits close to home.... I always need to remind myself that at those dark times, there was also very bright points of light from heroes big and small who just tried to do the right thing.... so humanity wasn't ALL bad
