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.
