Eighteen (!) later, this account by a former Boston Globe journalist, is gripping and sad, but not without hope and light as it recounts this tragic day. Just because you saw the coverage and read the stories, doesn't mean you  know enough. This is a powerful book. Google "Six Lives Boston Globe Zuckoff" or some variation of that to find the account published the Sunday after the attack, the tiny seed that became this book. . . . . . #fallandrise9/11 #fallandrise @mitchellzuckoff #nonfictionbooks @anniebjones05 #recommended @glencoepubliclibrary #readthis
I've got a new recommendation for y'all today! I've been reading this book quite slowly to take all of it one by one. The book is dedicated to empowering women and those who empowered themselves and others. Melinda Gates has picked different situations of women in different countries and different scenarios, say a workplace, home, schools or in agriculture. She has covered everything and discussed their life, inequality and sufferings in everyday life and of course, talked about the importance of empowering them.  I had high hopes from the book and it definitely didn't let me down; right from the Introduction by Melinda Gates, I couldn't put the book down before reading next two chapters. It's that great! So if you're planning to read a well-structured and well-researched book about women in different countries or how The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is giving hope and a helping hand to women around the world, pick this up rightaway!  Thank you @panmacmillanindia for the book. @melindafrenchgates @billandmelindafoundationorg . . #penandpaperrecommends #melindagates #billandmelindagatesfoundation #booksandtea #booksandflowers #dryflower #postcards #nonfictionbooks #nonfiction #billgates #tealover #bookphotography #bookflatlay #canonphotography #bookishflatlay #ilovereadingbooks #lovereading #bookaesthetic #beautifulbooks #panmacmillan #readingaddict #readersofinstagram #teakettle #sunkissed #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #unitedbookstagram #bookrecommendation #bookreview
🚨NON-FICTION🚨 “In what is considered his most extraordinary book, Oliver Sacks (a well-known American neurologist) recounts the stories of patients lost in the bizarre, apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders. These are case studies of people who have lost their memories and with them the greater part of their pasts; who are no longer able to recognize people and common objects; whose limbs have become alien; who are afflicted and yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents.  Each tale is a unique and deeply human study of life struggling against incredible adversity.” ‘Populated by a cast as strange as that of the most fantastic fiction, Dr. Sacks shows the awesome powers of our mind and just how delicately balanced they have to be’ -Sunday Times ‘This book is for everybody who has felt from time to time that certain twinge of self-identity and sensed how easily, at any moment, one might lose it’ -The Times I highly recommend this book to everyone (even if you mostly like fiction, I’d give it a go, it’s worth your time)

It's a cloudy and slow start to the long weekend. Currently reading my first non-fiction book of this year, It's Great to Suck at Something: The Exceptional Benefits of Being Unexceptional by Karen Rinaldi. It's blurbed as - Coupling honest, hilarious storytelling with unexpected insights, (It’s Great to) Suck at Something is an invitation to embrace our shortcomings as the very best of who we are and to open ourselves up to adventure, where we may not find what we thought we were looking for, but something way more important. Thank you @tlcbooktours and @atriabooks for my gifted copy 🤗 . . What are you reading this Saturday?

Book #53: “Bad Blood” by John Carreyrou. 5/5⭐️ You’ve probably already heard about this book but it is crazy good. The story is insane of course but the book is well written and research and very well put together. It reads like the craziest thriller but is, of course, a true story. I highly recommend checking this book out and not limiting yourself to the documentary or whatever you’ve heard about this story. It’s a great read.  #bookstagram #journalism #nonfictionbooks #toreadlist #theranos #nonfictiontoread #goodreadschallenge2019 #toread2019 #startupscandal #badblood

I didn't read a thing last month and I just can't get into anything too lengthy at the moment, so I have opted for non fiction.

. The Green Collar Economy . Van Jones . Their are countless books on our current environment problem and how to fix it. However Jones argues that many ignore the fact that these solutions often only work for the “rich”. They ignore how to fix the poor areas of the world. Jones states that the only way we can fix the environment is if we can fix the socioeconomic issues of the world as well. . Van Jones solution is to create a so called “Green Collar Economy”. This green collar economy would focus on how we can create jobs for the masses that are also healthy for the environment. An example would be retrofitting all buildings to be sustainable. New windows, fixing leaking plumbing, updating light fixtures etc... This was one example of Jones’ many ideas on how we can fix both our environmental issues and socioeconomic issues as well. . If you have any interest in environmental issues and books on solutions, I highly suggest reading this. It gives a different angle on fixing these issues, that encompasses a lot of society’s issues. . Anyone read this book? . #environment #fixingtheworld #environmentalissues #expandyourmind #greencollarjobs #fixtheplanet #nonfiction #nonfictionbooks #books #readmore #readmorebooks #learnmore #takeaction #buildabetterfuture #continuosimprovement #booksofknowledge #knowledge #igbook #igread #bookreview #bookstagram #unitedbookstagram #mybookfeatures #mybookflex #growthmindset #bookaholics #epicreads #whatiamreading #whatyoushouldknow #saturdaymornings
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5/5)⁣ ⁣ This collection of stories from Noah’s childhood in South Africa pre- and post-apartheid was informative, thought-provoking, moving, and at times hilarious. I learned so much about the history of apartheid and what it was like to live in South Africa while it was in effect, especially as a young boy born to a black mother and white father. Noah’s voice on paper is just like his voice on television, so the stories felt genuine and were engaging in such a personal way that evoked a lot of emotion in me. I imagine listening to the audiobook would be great too since he reads it himself. ⁣ ⁣ Noah touches on topics ranging from his first crush to how countries teach the most horrific parts of their histories to living in a household with domestic violence to hustling for cash in the hood. As he tells his own story he reflects on racism, poverty, and how the structure of societies influences individual behavior. A central theme that shows up in all of these tales is his unwavering love and respect for his mother who devoted everything she had to him. Their relationship and her determination to raise him on her own in a country where his very existence is illegal and in a city that they are legally banned from living in is astounding. She is an amazing woman. ⁣ ⁣ I would love to see another book by Noah with stories from later in his life. This one doesn’t go past his early 20s, so it doesn’t get into his career as a comic and his path to America, but I’m sure he has many more stories to tell. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. ⁣ ⁣ Have you read this book? What did you think? Do you have a favorite story that he told?⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #bornacrime #trevornoah #goodreads #bookreview #bookstagram #bookclub #book #nonfictionbooks #bookworm #currentlyreading #fivestarreview

Here are 10 questions you should probably ask yourself: . • Why do you get up in the morning? . • If you had unlimited money and couldn’t fail what would you do each day? . • If you had no one to impress right now, what would you do? . • What are you afraid of? And what’s the worst thing that can happen? Really describe this; what’s the best thing that could happen? Really describe that one too. . • When was the last time you had FUN?? Like real stomach-aching laughter kind of fun? What were you doing? . • Who are the 5 people that give you the most joy, that inspire you? That, when you talk to them, give you more energy than you had before? . • Are you comfortable or happy? . • What will happen if you don’t change anything? If you don’t decide/ go out of your comfort zone? What’s the cost of my fear? . • What do you put off because you’re scared? . • What do you not want to end up as? Or to mention Tim Ferris’ nightmare: what’s your fat man in a red bmw? . . I’ll try to answer these (and a few more) for myself now, feel free to share your answers or questions you like to ask (yourself and others). Self-reflection is probably the most helpful thing I’ve started doing since 2016. . . #timferris #questionschallenge #questionstoask #reflecting #selfreflection #thefouragreements #thefourhourworkweek #timothyferriss #tedtalk #findingpurpose #toolsoftitans #bookstagram #booksofinsta #nonfictionbooks #bookclubofinstagram

Indeed, We sent the Quran down during the Night of Decree. And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree? The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.  The angels and spirit descend therein with permission from their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn. . Quran (97:1-5) . . The last ten nights of Ramadan have already started!  It’s crazy how quickly this month has gone. And another Ramadan is almost at an end.  But there’s still time to make the most of this month.  The last 10 nights are the best nights in the year. Read Quran, pray extra salah, make dua and try to do as much ibadah as you can in these last few days. . . PS these books are available to buy from @kubepublishing and during Ramadan use the code “Ramadan2019” to get 25% off your order! . . . . . . . . . . #kubepublishing #readinramadan #ramadanreads #ramadanreadathon #lightuponlightbyfw #prayersofthepious #omarsuleiman #ramadan2019 #unitedbookstagram #muslimshelfspace #nonfictionbooks #islamicbooks #quranverse #quranicverse #laylatulqadr #iqra #ilovetoread #booknerds #lovereadingbooks #bookishcandles #bookishlove #diversebooks #diversereads #readingislife #amreading #currentlyreading #currentreads #bookgeek

TOM CRUISE Goals and benchmarks are synonyms thrown around each day as if their airy, aspirational connotations were a dime a dozen! Millions of people talk, but don’t act. Few walk their talk, One being Mr Tom Cruise. Winners understand the basic rules,- determination, discipline, effort, hard work, practice- and these are just the primary constituents. Tom sailed out of the gate running neck and neck with a group of Outsiders only to gain lead the minute he dropped his jeans for a Bob Seeger music video- that underwear scene even made Calvin Klein blush! Tommy became TOM CRUISE. Physical Beauty certainly catches the eye, intelligence catches the ear, mix them together and You’ve got one heck of Head Rush.... And that’s Tommy’s magic- the rush of wind whistling through everyone’s hair, like a winning comb slicking every strand with hopes and dreams. Whether he’s silently judging you in 'Magnolia' or scoring your attention at "hello" in Jerry Maguire, one thing is for sure, you can place your bet on Tommy, he’s a winning thoroughbred! [LEGEND] Jack of all trades. [A FEW GOOD MEN] Try One. [RAINMAN] SHAME on envious Hollywood— he OWNED the Oscar That year! [TROPIC THUNDER] Funniest Five minutes of screen time on record. [MISSION IMPOSSIBLE] KEEP THEM COMING! [MINORITY REPORT] Superstardom is a minority. [EYES WIDE SHUT] Our eyes were wide open! [BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY] Tom, You are definitely a Fire-Work Display! "I disagree with people who think you learn more from getting beat up than you do from winning."

📚What type of startup are you building or want to build? ---------- Shortcut Your Startup by the @reumbrothers is the ultimate guide to starting, maintaining, and selling your own startup. The @reumbrothers have had years of experience building their own startup as well as being venture capitalists. Who better to learn from than by the people who work with several businesses successful and unsuccessful? ---------- One of the best takeaways was about getting into the trenches. For example, if you want to start your own athletic club then you should scope out all the different clubs successful and unsuccessful to see what makes them tick. ---------- As this book is an ultimate guide, I wouldn't recommend it for casual reading. It'll only be valuable for people who actually have their own startup or are in the process of starting one. ---------- 📷 was taken during my holiday in Bali last year at @woobarbali ---------- Follow @bookmattic my more lifelong learning tips. ---------- Buy this book at @periplusid ---------- #shortcutyourstartup #reumbrothers #bookreview #businessbook #nonfiction #nonfictionbooks #bookstagram #bookreviews #businessbooks #selfdevelopment #startup #startupbusiness #startupbook #woobarbali #seminyak #baliindonesia #bookblogger #bookclubindonesia #successhabits #businesstips

Few months ago i was listening to an interview on Radio France, a sociologist explaining the differences between left and right corpse of values. At some point, she said something like, we have noticed that leftist people are generally less tolerant than rightist people. (over simplified of course considering the interview lasted an hour). As the end of White by Bret Easton Ellis, there is an echo of this. Echo that seems confirmed by what I can read on twitter, some shows for millennials or some columns or “billets d’humeur” and of course by some humorists labelled “leftist”. We are heading to this society of the “perfects” where you have to behave and be offended on demand. Not because it’s your opinion, but because it is “l’air du temps”. I’ve never been a fan of Ellis, never been able to finish his books (bored to death to be honest), tried to look American Psycho on Netflix, and failed again to find any interest in it. But I have to admit that even if a bit boring and too long, I can’t fault any observations made in White. We seem to have moved backward toward a childish state where being offended is the new cool and scowling at people you disagree with, is hip.  Could our western society be so bored that it needs to create fantasies of terror and totalitarianism to feel alive? Social network is the place of this new purity but journalists and columnists are playing with it like children with matches. I don’t know if “humour is the courtesy of despair” but we should urgently find it back, this sense of distance, this ability to doubt and to think a bit longer especially when we IMAGINE we are offended. Just for Bret Easton Ellis’s non fiction work is more than welcome.  Or maybe (but really maybe) i'm getting definitely old 🤔😹😂 #reading #igersbook #booklover #nonfictionbooks #literature #breteastonellis #breteastonelliswhite #penguinrandomhouse #bookstagram #readingtime📖

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. . I’ve been meaning to read this book for years! . “Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more. Henrietta's cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can't afford health insurance.” . What a fascinating read. This book is for everyone. It is less about biology and more about moral questions and the very real family Henrietta Lacks left behind. . For me, the lesson in this book was not biology-related. People are complicated and messy. Love and try to understand them anyway. . 4.5 stars. . #booklover #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofig #igbooks #theimmortallifeofhenriettalacks #henriettalacks #rebeccaskloot #helacells #nonfictionbooks
“You set the colours against each other and they sing. Not as a choir but as soloists.” . 🌈 . Looking back through deteriorating eyes, the activist, artist, film-maker, gardener, and writer Derek Jarman brings colour brilliantly to life. We see the full spectrum brimming with meaning: from queer history to the Bible, his own poetry to advert slogans, the physics of light rays to the historical process of creating dyes, and the impact of colours in his own artistic and personal life. With chapters dedicated to pioneers like Leonardo and Isaac Newton, as well as through the rainbow — White Lies, On Seeing Red, etc — his thoughts are a loose but lucid stream of consciousness (and he never misses an opportunity for a colour pun). The writing is lyrical, witty, whimsical: in Green Fingers, for example, you find that one second you are being asked ‘Were Adam’s eyes the green of paradise?’, and the next being told that ‘Havelock Ellis was certain that queers preferred green to any other colour... hand a colour swatch to a lad with clock on his mind and see what colour he chooses.’ (So good!) Indeed it seems almost that the more the writer’s sight began to fail, the more vividly he conjured colours on the page. . This is Jarman’s last book, but the first I read. (I’m big into books about colours and like, colours as a thing, so...) Definitely planning to read Modern Nature, and his other journals and books, now though. Hint if you’re looking to read him too: several are being reissued from Vintage in the same series as this one & they look just as fit. They also have incred introductions from modern writers, like this one from Ali Smith which was so good it actually made me want to give her writing another go (difficult — I could NOT get on with Autumn when I tried last year.) . Holla Jarman fans? 👋 Which should I read next? . 🌈 . #chroma #derekjarman #modernnature #alismith #readingspot #nonfictionbooks #bookquotes #amreading
Judul : Mindset Penulis : Carol S. Dweck Penerbit: Baca Tebal : 394 hlm "Faktor terpenting yang menentukan bagaimana seseorang mencapai keahlian tertentu bukanlah kemampuan yang sudah melekat sebelumnya, melainkan usaha keras dengan maksud yang jelas" . .  Buku ini menjelaskan tentang karakteristik mindset, yaitu mindset tetap dan mindset tumbuh. Mindset tetap (fixed mindset) merupakan mindset yang percaya bahwa sifat seseorang, bakat, sudah ditetapkan dan tidak bisa diubah. Berkebalikan dengan mindset tumbuh (growth mindset) merupakan mindset yang meyakini bahwa kualitas dasar dapat diolah melalui upaya-upaya tertentu. Mindset ini ternyata berkaitan dengan kehidupan sehari-hari mulai dari belajar, bekerja, olahraga hingga relationship. . .  Setelah membaca ini sedikitnya pikiran menjadi terbuka. Kira-kira apa saja yang membatasi seseorang untuk maju. Semoga bisa menerapkan mindset tumbuh di kehidupan sehari-hari 😁  4/5  #bookstagram #books #mindset #carolsdweck #indobookstagram #reading #books #nonfictionbooks #penerbitbaca

Эксперимент "24 часа чтения" наконец то закончен \о/ .  Мой первый опыт заключается в суммарном наборе времени, т.е. читала урывками на протяжении 2-3 дней. Всё ещё кажется нереальным читать целые сутки, без перерыва. За это время было прочитано 10 книг и 1 комикс, НО я специально выбирала небольшие книги, если сюжет не понравится, долго не страдать и быстро переключиться на что то другое. В целом, мне понравилась идея, главное выбрать свободный день и подобрать интересные книги. . . .  Герман, Л. Кристенсен 4.5/5  Путешествие белой медведицы, С.

This is Sandra Michie's fascinating story of being  a missionary nurse in rural Zambia. In her autobiography Sandra describes how every joy and every trial has been perfectly sewn together into a beautiful patchwork of grace. But it has not always seemed this way. Working as a nurse for 25 years in a rural location, 500 miles from the nearest town, Sandra's faith was tested to the limits. What was God's purpose in the isolation, communication difficulties and disparate challenges? And returning to the UK, what was God doing through spells of life-threatening ill-health? Sandra's story is one of growth that will encourage you to know God's love in the lowest times and delight in His provision in the best. As you read God's Patchwork, allow Him to show you the tender thread of His goodness running through the patchwork of your life.  #books #nonfiction #nonfictionbooks #christian #christianity #jesus #jesuschrist #faith  #bookcommunity #religion #everythingchristian #christianbooks #bible  #greatcommission #hope #truth #god  #instantapostle #mission #godspurpose #disciple #discipleship #nurse #medical #nursing #missionary #zambia #patchwork #autobiography #nurses

4*/5 - I don’t know what I was expecting going into this book, but I loved it more than I thought. Non fiction is a relatively new world for me , but the author does an amazing job of not only telling Chris Knight’s story but also researching hermits and seclusion and helping to educated the reader along the way. A fascinating look at a man who didn’t fit any boxes society could try to place him in. #goodreads #goodreadschallenge #thirdplacebooks #thestrangerinthewoods #catsandbooks #nonfictionbooks #bookstagram #books

So if you are having a hard time to forgive others, ask yourself, "Am I full of me or am I full of God?" - Joena San Diego (A Million Scars and A broken Heart)
☠️Памяти XIX столетия, когда литература была великой, вера в прогресс безграничной, а преступления совершались и раскрывались с изяществом и вкусом☠️ ⠀ ☠️Детективы стали одними из самых публикуемых произведений за всю историю человечества. Они до сих пор держатся в списках бестселлеров по многу месяцев и не собираются сдавать своих позиций. ⠀ ☠️Мрачная атмосфера, леденящие кровь подробности и жестокие преступления, авантюрные похождения и изощренные методы убийства, коварные отравительницы и неуравновешенные маньяки. Почему нас это привлекает? Как вообще все эти нелицеприятные вещи попали в литературу? Почему именно Англия стала первопроходцем в этой области? ⠀ ☠️На эти вопросы и пытается ответить Люси Уорсли в книге "Очень британское убийство" ⠀ ☠️В книге вы найдете реальные истории и расследования, повлиявшие на литературу и сделавшие детектив и триллер такими, какими мы его знаем сейчас.Пока читаешь, начинаешь понимать, что жизнь порой подбрасывает нам такие загадки и происшествия, до которых ни один писатель не додумается. Вот несколько интересных фактов из
Любите научпоп? Я просто обожала в детстве❤️ Особенно про медицину. А вам какие темы нравились?🤓 ⠀ 🧬 «Безумная наука» - идеальнейший подарок от 6 лет. Для всех, кому скуууучно🙄 С первого же разворота скуку предлагают развеять пятью разными смешными способами, а ещё... придумать страшную историю, раскрыть преступление, выучить язык слонов, сбежать из замка, расшифровать иероглифы, научиться жонглировать, предсказать будущее, выжить в джунглях, стать битбоксером. Есть даже две настольные игры-ходилки, и да, про науку тоже много всего😉 Скучать точно не придётся👍 ⠀ 🧬 «Как устроено тело», Никола Кухарска. Это атлас и виммельбух одновременно. Классическая информация по теме щедро разбавлена забавными панорамными разворотами: семейный ужин, поликлиника (даже перепалка в регистратуре нарисована😂👌), устройством больницы, медицинскими профессиями  и знаменитыми врачами. Листайте карусель и смотрите все сами👉 ⠀ Обе книги - новинки от издательства «Росмэн» @rosman_izd 📚 Кто вчера в Stories голосовал именно за них? Ставьте + в комментариях😀
