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: November's read has ... already begun!

The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs: A New History of a Lost World - Stephen Brusatte

So, who's a lousy moderator?  


Me, me, me!  Oh, pick me!


My mea culpa; I've bitten off a wee more than I've been able to chew the last few months, and I'd like to say I'll do better from now on, I swear!  But really, it's not looking good until the end of this year.  Perhaps in 2019 I'll once again embrace moderation in all things (see what I did there?), but for now, pardon me while I run 5 paces behind everyone else.


So - this month's read is The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs: A New History of a Lost World by Stephen Brusatte.  I'm either not participating myself this month, or, and sadly this is less likely, I'll get my act together and see if either of my libraries have it.


For anyone else who would like to join in, please do!


In this captivating narrative (enlivened with more than seventy original illustrations and photographs), Steve Brusatte, a young American paleontologist who has emerged as one of the foremost stars of the field—naming fifteen new species and leading groundbreaking scientific studies and fieldwork—masterfully tells the complete, surprising, and new history of the dinosaurs, drawing on cutting-edge science to dramatically bring to life their lost world and illuminate their enigmatic origins, spectacular flourishing, astonishing diversity, cataclysmic extinction, and startling living legacy. Captivating and revelatory, The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs is a book for the ages.

My thanks goes out to Themis Athena, who picked up my slack and announced the group read on the day the group read actually started.
