Who knew there were so many conspiracy theories out there?!?
I found SOO MANY SITES.
And it just keeps going deeper and deeper.
Some are creepy. Some are intriguing. Some are just downright ridiculous.
If you want to dive in a little. I suggest just start with Wikipedia: Conspiracy Theories but Time Magazine has a great list of the Top 10 Conspiracy Theories.
Do you have a favorite theory? Something you believe in?
This is one of those things that is simple but can end up meaning a lot or at least having some sort of simple effect.
I found a website called On This Day.
I think I thing I lived the most was Famous People Born on August 26th. I have the same birthday as Mother Teresa! What an honor.
Then there is specific events that happened on the day. How cool is it that I was on born on Women’s Equality Day!
So cool! I encourage everyone to check out the site. Learn a little about your day of birth. Please share some interesting points you find.
So I did this last year and got a lot of responses, so I cut it at 10. I still have not gotten through all those books, and hope to at some point. But I might as well stack some new titles on top of those!
So here are the book suggestions I have gotten and where you can find them on Amazon! Maybe some of them will be good books for others of you too!
- Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
- The Beaten Territory by Randi Samuelson
- The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
- The Big Lie by Dinesh D’Souza
- All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
- Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
- Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein
- Earth Children Series by Jean M. Auel (This one counts as the last three because it is a six book series!)
Hope if you can find some time to read something this year, you will give a glance over this list and give some a try. If you have already read some of these I would love opinions on them… which ones I should dive into first, which ones I might want to wait till later and any other comments you might want to share!
So I went into iTunes and just chose Comedy… I felt like something funny today. I found a podcast called Barely Friending and it is pretty great.
I actually ended up listening to the first two which were “Worst Thing a Friend has Done” and “Worst and Best Vacations”.
It’s pretty great. Each of the hosts tells a story of their own and then they read one from audience members too.
There is over 100 episodes… definitely something I could listen to for a while!
Another afternoon in the park… today just doing a little reading. I am still working on reading The Red Tent so today is getting me a little closer to actually finishing it.
It was a beautiful day. And Mia had fun too!
Between running around with Mia taking pictures, I probably did not get as much reading done as I would have liked… I guess I will have to start making this a regular thing.. maybe I will finish the book by the end of June. 😂
I found this awesome app: AudiobooksApp.
It has a ton of free audio books in all ranges of topics and genres. No big like New York Times Best Sellers, but still interesting.
I searched the Travel section and found a book called “A Lady’s Life in the Rocky Mountains”. I am still listening to it.
I love it! It gives great insight into early Colorado and Rocky Mountain living but from a woman’s point of view, which you don’t hear often!
I think I might actually buy the book though. I don’t really enjoy the audio book. I find myself not concentrating and getting side tracked.
