Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

The Flat Book Society: September Read begins in 18 days!

Get Well Soon: History's Worst Plagues and the Heroes Who Fought Them - Jennifer   Wright

It's almost September - which everyone who is playing Halloween Book Bingo knows, but it's also the start of The Flat Book Society's September read, also known as our Birthday read!  This marks our 1st full year as a group and we've yet to kill each other or even maim anyone!  Whoo hoo!   


I jest, of course.  That's why we have Huggins; he's not only our mascot - he keeps things sweet.


I'm looking forward to Get Well Soon: History's Worst Plagues and the Heroes Who Fought Them by Jennifer Wright  and I hope everyone else is too.  


A witty, irreverent tour of history's worst plagues—from the Antonine Plague, to leprosy, to polio—and a celebration of the heroes who fought them.


Unfortunately, our read this year doesn't strictly fit with any Halloween Bingo Squares, but I have posted a question on the discussion about whether or not it could be used for the centre square, because really, this book totally fits right in with the whole Halloween theme.  I'll update when I hear a verdict.  


Either way, I hope this won't put people off from participating; with so much going on in September this is likely to be a slower paced buddy read, so if you're interested in joining in, please do.  The more buddy readers, the louder our communal "EWWWWW" will be.


Nobody ever looked intimidating wearing a birthday hat.
