    The Bounty, by Bligh's biographer Caroline Alexander. Exhaustively researched and a bit exhausting to get through, but in the end an enjoyable and very informative read.

    I started reading Influence by Robert Cialdini but then switched to Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker. Along with Why We Sleep, Walker has done quite a few podcasts which I am listening to as well.

    The Library Book by Susan Orlean. You'd think a book about the history of libraries, written around the great library fire of the LA public library, would be dull. But you'd be wrong.

    Added this to my To Read list. I love a good library.

    I finished How Long 'til Black Future Month by N.K. Jemisin. Can't overstate how much I like her writing. It's a bunch of short stories and there was only one that I thought was so-so. All the others were fantastic.

    Next up: Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente

    Just started Timefulness by Marcia Bjornerud. https://press.princeton.edu/titles/13234.html

    If nothing else it's a beautiful little book with some nice illustrations in the text. I'm a geologist so it's a subject near to my heart. Hoping it's a good read.
