    • I am really enjoying The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, and I did not know there was a sequel to 84, Charing Cross Road, so I am really excited to add that to my reading list as well. Thanks for sharing your review of The Plotters. I will definitely take a look at that as soon as I’ve finished reading it and before my book club meets to discuss it.

    • I struggled with Lab Girl, but really only because it is so much like my job, as I work in a science research lab. Often I use reading to escape my work life, but this reminded me too much of my work life. Also, there is a section where she complains about high indirect costs attached to grant funding for institutional purposes. I get so frustrated with how researchers don’t understand how costly it is to keep a science lab running (power, plumbing, etc.). Plus, those indirect costs trickle down to fund administrators that are also necessary. I was going to rate this book 3.5 stars instead of 4, but I enjoyed the Ireland section at the end and want to support female scientists in any way that I can.

      • I wonder if I should split it up like that too, though I sincerely want to try and get through it without breaks. Exhaustive info on whaling doesn’t exactly sound riveting though lol

  1. How are you getting along with Moby Dick? I enjoyed it, although very little actually happens – it’s a good one to read when you want to relax your mind. Have a great week of reading!

    • So my friends and I divided Moby Dick into 4 sections to read over 4 months. We discuss every month. This is how I am finally getting through some of the bulkier classics that I have been too intimidated to attempt before. I thought this would be more of an adventure story, but it really isn’t. 90% of this book seems to just be about the ins and outs of whaling. I have less than 100 pages left, so I’m hoping for a more exciting ending, but I’m not holding my breath.
