In many ways, Project Hail Mary is even better than Weir's almost-perfect The Martian. We are treated to a save-the-world scenario instead of save-only-the-astronaut. A deadly microbe is killing the light from the Sun, and Earth is expected to begin suffering mass casualties. The theory of relativity throws a major wrench into the plan to save the planet, and there are only a few, very gene-specific humans who can help. So good...

I read this cover to cover the first time I opened it. Educational, mouthwatering intros for most recipes, and other than several new-to-me spices and staples, the ingredients are generally few, and likely to to be in your pantry or fridge already. A really cool technique recipe on how to make couscous from scratch!

This true story by David Grann about the Osage tribe in Oklahoma during the 1920's, reads as if it were a fictional mystery. You'll be reeling from the murders painstakingly planned and performed by "a serial killer" in order to receive (um, steal) a piece of the oil-money pie owned by tribal members with rights to the oil discovered on their reservation.
