    Interest piqued by the new HBO miniseries. Just started today.

    Almost scooped this at the library yesterday. Really enjoyed the first episode of the show.

    I’m about 30% in and enjoying it a great deal. Adds a lot of detail of behind the characters and happenings that were depicted in the first episode.

    Started this morning. TIL that Brazil Nuts are the most naturally occurring radioactive food. Neat.

    Man - them exploring the sarcophagus is something out of a Jeff VanderMeer novel.


    This was great. Burned through this... pun somewhat intended.

    was very good. Got me back into a non-fiction kick. Currently reading Into the Kingdom of Ice and it's fantastic
