Bijzonder gedetailleerd en informatief: "Een zee van traan" door Jaap Bruijn en Louwrens Hacquebord. De ondertitel zegt alles over het onderwerp, en sommige getallen zijn ronduit verbijsterend.

"Though ridiculed when first introduced, the "Sea Level Rise Denial Bill" would become the model for the U.S. National Stability Protection Act of 2025, which led to the conviction and imprisonment of more than three hundred scientists for endangering the safety and well-being of the general public with unduly alarming threats.

Scientists who
spoke out about the potentially catastrophic effects of

acting out of self-interestto increase financial support

The Collapse of Western Civilization.

A View from the Future by Naomi Oreskes

writers construct an imaginary future historians attempt to reconstruct the past. Ultimately, both are seeking to understand the present. In this essay, we blend the two genres to imagine a future historian looking
back on a past that is our present and (possible) future.

Consciousness in Jung and Patajali (Research in Analytical Psychology and Jungian Studies) by Leanne Whitney

Finished "Ready Player 2" (in audio book form). Fine for what it was (a second nostalgia grenade targeted at my mid Gen-X cortex) with plenty of 80s era references to D&D, video games, and music.

But on the whole, while bigger in "scope" than the first book, it felt weaker.

I have thoughts and opinions about the main character, who is significantly less likable through a substantial part of the book.

If anyone would like to chat about it, feel free to DM me.

Received S. T. Gibson's An Education in Malice as a netgalley ARC.

Why should you read "Dune" by Frank Herbert Because: Yes.

It is my favorite book. One of my high school English teachers always recommended it to us, but I didn't read until I was an adult and I feel sad that it took me so long to read it for the first time.

WHEN MAGIC MAKES MONSTERS, the monsters must band together for safety. A wild and vibrant near-future tale at the crossroads of fantasy and speculative fiction, with deeply human emotion at its heart. B PLUS

So many what I considr to be awesome political books out last year and continuing into this year. This one's now in the Bookshare collection.

A quotation from Martial:

Good work youll find, some poor, and much thats worse,
It takes all sorts to make a book of verse.

Sunt bona, sunt quaedam mediocria, sunt mala plura
quae legis hic: aliter non fit, Avite, liber.

My current read is "The Revenge Of Geography: What the Map Tells Us About Coming Conflicts and the Battle Against Fate" by Robert D. Kaplan, 3.77 out of 5 stars, 5,451ratings, Published in 2012. It's a little on the scholarly side, but still quite interesting.

6: Amil and the After by Verra Hiranandani -- A moving story of life in India after the Partition as told by a 12-year-old boy. Emotionally strong, the novel addresses several important & relevant issues.

Today's review! Old Time Religion by E.H. Lupton:

"This epic novel blends 1970s culture, magic, and Greek, Welsh, Latin and English mythology. I highly recommend Old Time Religion. The Wisconsin Gothic series is outstanding. I hope there's another book coming."

Linda Carrol discusses the lack of quotation marks in Our Missing Hearts By Celeste Ng

Interestingly, 2024 is seeing a very British trend for me. It's not a bad thing or a good thing. It just sort of happened that way. "Huh! How about that" Of the 6 books I've touched in 2024, 4 of them have ties to the UK.

RN I'm almost done with The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan (I'm picturing it as a Richard Curtis movie Four Weddings and a Funeral even gets a reference) and just started Pulse by Julian Barnes.
