Greetings all book lovers


I had a crazy year. full of adventures, new lessons in life and plenty of stress.I read a lot, but not for leisure, rather education. but anyways, I decided to unwind a little bit as 2013 is FINALLY coming to an end.
and what's a better way to end a year than holding a deep romance novel in junction with an anti Taliban memoir while sipping hot chocolate and french vanilla beside my downtown window as the snow falls away and cover all the ugly alleyways. hakoum al makrafoon...nuff said!


how are you ending your year.. care and share

إعتراف زمان ما كنت بحب أقراء كتير لانه اللغة كانت صعبة شديد

وأنا زولة كبرت وقراية الكبر صعبة هسع كده ممكن يقول الواحد انه قدر يلحق بالركب الكريم



I Forgot To Remember: A Memoir of Amnesia by Sue Meck


In 1988 Su Meck was twenty-two and married with two children when a ceiling fan in her kitchen fell and struck her on the head, leaving her with a traumatic brain injury that erased all her memories of her life up to that point. Although her body healed rapidly, her memories never returned. Yet after just three weeks in the hospital, Su was released and once again charged with the care of two toddlers and a busy household.

Adrift in a world about which she understood almost nothing, Su became an adept mimic, gradually creating routines and rituals that sheltered her and her family, however narrowly, from the near-daily threat of disaster—or so she thought. Though Su would eventually relearn to tie her shoes, cook a meal, and read and write, nearly twenty years would pass before a series of personally devastating events shattered the “normal” life she had worked so hard to build, and she realized that she would have to grow up all over again.

In her own indelible voice, Su offers us a view from the inside of a terrible injury, with the hope that her story will help give other brain injury sufferers and their families the resolve and courage to build their lives anew. Piercing, heartbreaking, but finally uplifting, this book is the true story of a woman determined to live life on her own terms.

What is common between Ebola & Blindness?? Nothing BUT the imagination of of a great novelist .

Ebola: death toll is over 3,450 and rising, and there is no quick fix in sight!!
Having read the grim accounts in Jose Saramago's Blindness a decade ago, and seeing how the Ebola crisis unfolding, I felt like it's all happening in real time.
This is an invitation to read this great work of literature

Thumbs up Life of Pi *




Don't you bully me with your politeness! Love is hard to believe, ask any lover. Life is hard to believe, ask any scientist. God is hard to believe, ask any believer. What is your problem with hard to believe?



Life of Pi , by Yann martel : it's really amazing novel full off lessons and wisdom , recommend to read

I haven't read a good book in a while and the last i did read(years ago i have no interest or feel like sharing now cause i'm in a more mature space now and wouldn't recommend it...due to the digital age television and web surfing are my dominate sources of entertainment so i don't really read literature that much unless online comics count)

though i've seen my peers state this book is a must read and i'm interested in checking it out if i get a chance

I want to clarify i'm a complex brother whom does read to enlighten myself but not so much for entertainment value...the last book i read/bought for leisure was a urban crime novel wrote by an rap artist I used to be a fan of before i matured and it only came on my radar after reading a compelling page of the book posted on another message board i used to post on..as of today i would never entertain such content cause while it was more i cautionary story i find the genre insulting to the American black experience

oh yeah that's right...i did read a book on erotic stories an associate gave it to me to pass time while i was unjustly incarcerated a few days for the crime of being an outspoken blackman in white Amerikkkuh can't remember the name but it was an okay read with interesting stories

The future is dependent on technology not ancient history.

The right science fiction is scientifically educational but most of the junk is just entertainment these days. Star Wars ain't science fiction. Try:

um

remembering your history is very important...as a Sudanese/African person you of all person i think understand this....our history is apart of who we are and can be used to both inspire and learn from whether that be how not to make similar mistakes as our forefathers or even taking positives from our pass and adopting them to the present.

but yeah i may have to check out a few of those books your recommeded..."A Blackman's Burden" in particular sounds interesting

No, I am what the palefaces started calling African American inthe 1990s.

History is usually somebody's version of propaganda and if you do enough of your own research you can usually find something is being left out.

My interpretation of the last 500 years of history is that people with technology have more power and control than people who do not. My personal experience is trusting White folks to tell you what information is important makes asmuch sense as trusting the devil to tell you how to get to heaven.

Now we have this:

May 2016 Was the 8th Consecutive Warmest Month on Record
https://weather.com/news/climate/new...may-earth-2016

This is getting scary. They talk about humanity being responsible but how much are palefaces responsible for this. What does Planned Obsolescence have to do with technology and economics? Are they deliberately manufacturing junk and ignoring the depreciation? Producing junk makes more CO2.

The Laws of Physics do not care about History:

OMG! This thread has been allowed to scroll down to page 16. Bump!

And now for something somewhat different. I am always blathering about science fiction and TECHNOLOGY so let's try some really Hard Stuff.

Beaglebone for DUMMIES by Rui Santos & Luis Perestrelo



The Beaglebone Black is a credit card sized Single Board Computer similar to the Raspberry Pi. I have both boards. I bought the Beaglebone from Radio Shack a while ago and just got the Raspberry Pi from Amazon 3 weeks ago. The Pi has already crapped out. I think it is because of a cheap flaky microSD card. I will have to buy a high quality SD card and install NOOBS onto it. The Beagleboard works fine.

Before the RasPi crapped out I was able to run a benchmark from the January 1983 BYTE Magazine. It beat the IBM 3033 mainframe that was the fastest thing in the test in 1983. But it has 4 cores and each core was faster than the mainframe that cost $3,000,000 at the time.

The Raspberry Pi 3 is more powerful than the Beaglebone but I think the Beaglebon is more reliable. There are a lot of people on the Internet talking about the microSd card getting corrupted on the Pi.

So what is going on with computers in Africa? I have seen articles about the Pi being used in education. I also saw an article about a drone made to look like a bird coming down in Somalia. Who is spying on who?

http://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-te...ia-bird-drone/

No matter what the future of Africa is going to be affected by technology. Gotta get with the program. Computer controlled irrigation to combat the Climate Change caused by the Palefaces!

Quote:
Nourse was, himself, a physician writing during the Civil Rights Era, an era that fundamentally changed Americaand would launch us however imperfectly from a dark and dreary past to a world where women achieve more than they ever have in society; being sexually atypical is not as heavily maligned; being different because of race, religion, clan, or creed (yes, I was boy scout) is not an automatic disqualifier of your worth as a person. We are not perfect by any means, but we keep trying.

We humans are an incredibly territorial and possessive species. We've even routinely found ways to subjugate other humans. But the beauty and great hope of "Star Surgeon" is that we can rise above it. We can aspire to be something the galaxy comes to admire and respect.

The one thing I did find severely lacking in the book is that there are no women. There's not even a Gynecologic service mentioned on the the four-star Panel. For a book, so visual even going as far as color coding all the medical specialties -black for pathology, red for surgery, white for radiology etc - this omission is striking. I doubt Nourse thought consciously of his omission of essentially half of Earth's species; sadly, it remains a blight on an otherwise stellar book. Still, I cannot recommend this book enough. The audiobook was the version I found first (Scott Farqhuar is a great narrator) but there are print versions. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

There is a review by a Black doctor of a 50 year old SF book. The first SF book I every read. Of course now it is available for free as e-book and audiobook.

A year and a half off the 1st page.

No Long At Ease by Chinua Achebe

That is #2 of African Trilogy
https://www.goodreads.com/series/168...frican-trilogy

I have seen the Ready Player One movie.

It is interesting that it is so different from the book but still has much the same theme.

I only read his first book

"THINGS FALL APART"

It was recommended to me by a very dear friend of mine who is a voracious reader when it comes to books.

I, in turn, recommended "SEASONS OF MIGRATION TO THE NORTH"



And she loved it


I rarely read fiction

Most of what I read is nonfiction. What a shame.

THE DOUBLE

His style, the so called "stream of thought" style of writing, reminds me of Faulkner and James Joyce.

The Color of Law:
A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America



https://www.epi.org/publication/the-...gated-america/

Quote:
In The Color of Law (published by Liveright in May 2017), Richard Rothstein argues with exacting precision and fascinating insight how segregation in America—the incessant kind that continues to dog our major cities and has contributed to so much recent social strife—is the byproduct of explicit government policies at the local, state, and federal levels.

The Color of Law was designated one of ten finalists on the National Book Awards’ long list for the best nonfiction book of 2017.

Ghee, how did I miss this post? 🤔 I recommend this novel: Blindness is a book by Portuguese writer Jose Saramago (I read it long time ago).
