Today In Labor History April 7, 1804: Haitian general, Toussaint Louverture died on this day. He was one of the most prominent members of the Haitian revolution for independence from France. The slave revolt against the French began in 1791 with the call by Dutty Boukman, a vodou priest. Encouraged by the French and American revolutions. Louverture led 100,000 enslaved Haitians in revolt, winning their freedom in 1793. In 1804, Haiti became first free black republic in the world. The U.S. refused to recognize Haiti for the next 70 and France extracted millions in restitution, destroying any hope of ever moving out of deep poverty. Louverture was betrayed in the end and died in prison. For a fantastic history of the Haitian Revolution, read The Black Jacobins, by C.L.R.James.

Today's review! Lone Star on a Cowboy Heart by Marie S. Crosswell:

"I first read it in 2016, and it's still one of my favorite stories, well worth reading over again... I highly recommend it. Sam and Montgomery are two unforgettable and emotionally powerful characters."

Nachdem das ber ein Jahr bei mir rumlag, habe ich jetzt endlich gelesen. Und ich muss sagen: Der gefllt mir um Meilen besser als die Filmadaption. Der Film hat da einiges an weirden, berflssigen Subplots dazugedichtet (z.B. mit dem Stationsvorsteher), die im Original gar nicht vorkommen, und allgemein ist die Story verstndlicher und nachvollziehbarer erklrt.

Im reading the , American Veda by Philip Goldberg. Fascinating read.

The Time Machine. The novel that came out in the late 1800s or early 1900s..

I listened to the audiobook and watched the film from 1960 and the book is terrible compared to the film adaptation.

The book gets to the last few chapters and just changes entirely, it time jumps (I know like obviously duh) but the whole flow is lost.

The remember they added a bunch of stuff to the film version but it was really good.

Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst

Being the child of a poet I dont tend to read a lot of it, but this slim volume (especially the audio read by the author) packed a punch.

A Sad Bastard Cookbook post about why our was banned from Amazon according to a self-righteous jerk on discord who still taught me useful information:

- do not let your friends buy and review your book because if they do, amazon will say MWAHA you are manipulating reviews and take down your book
- how would you stop them I don't know, maybe you should be such a jerk that you don't have friends

I think I might prefer some of these nonspecific editions, I like my fiction a bit unspecified

"Our people were canoe people. Until they made us walk. Until our lake- shore lodges were signed away for shanties and dust. Our people were a circle, until we were dispersed. Our people shared a language with which to thank the day, until they made us forget.
But we didn't forget. Not quite."
(From the book Braiding Sweetgrass)

Remember when weekends were about going out and getting pissed on then laying around like a big useless hungover lump all day

So glad I've aged past that nonsense. Give me a good and a cup of instead nowadays.

"Sisters in Pain" (2000)
L. Elisabeth Beattie and Mary Angela Shaughnessy

Naomi intenta coordinar los bajos fondos y la amenaza Laconia como puede desde la Rocinante, mientras algo va probando como acabar con la humanidad.

Interesante, pica y contundente. Todos los personajes importantes que quedan son sometidos a decisiones extremas, me ha gustado la guinda de la saga y cmo se ha cerrado.

The Seven Brides-to-Be of Generalissimo Vlad by Victoria Goddard

My rating: 5 ...

"Every night, I sleep through the same nightmare. I hear a roar coming towards me, an increasingly menacing rumour. I don't turn round. I don't need to. I know who's chasing me I know they have machetes. Somehow, without turning around, I know they have machetes Sometimes there are my classmates too. I hear their screams when they fall.

I've stopped Childhood's End because I got bored with it.

Character-wise it jumps from one person to another, so there's not much to keep you reading in terms of wanting to know what happens next to anyone.

Then the whole middle section did very little in terms of moving the story along. There's a undersea part that doesn't need to be in there, then a plan that doesn't work

It's the kind of where the actual story part is all in the last section and the rest is setting the scene

I think at this point I'm mostly collecting books from Queer Arab / Muslim authors that I'm hoping I'll be healed enough to be able to read. This author is local.

One of my favorites in the BOSS FIGHT BOOKS lineup is Reyan Ali's "NBA Jam"

Built out of exhaustive research and original interviews with a star-studded cast, Ali's NBA JAM returns you to an era when coin-op was king.

Book updates are slow, but they are happening. Right now, I need to wait for important feedback before I can finalize it and send it to agents. In the meantime, I've gone back to working on the sequel.

Muay Thai Counter Techniques: Competitive Skills and Tactics for Success.

Perfect for Nature lovers, I love the great diversity of this book that shares fun facts about creatures from different parts of the world. The illustrations are breathtaking and the split pages are so interactive: they create a unique immersive experience taking the readers deep into the Andes Mountains or the Natural Springs of Florida.

Inspired by a true story, the Ocean Gardener explores ocean life diversity and protection and explains to young readers how climate change impacts sea creatures. While swimming , Ayla notices how the corals in the reef are changing colors and all the fishes are leaving. With her mothers help, she searches for solutions to help the ocean. This book is truly beautiful : the illustrations are colorful and charming and I love the strong message shared in the story.
