Billy Go to Bed by Pamela Malcolm
Billy Go to Bed - Pamela Malcolm

Billy Go to Bed by Pamela Malcolm is a cleverly written and illustrated children's story for ages three to nine. It is a fun to read story and my favorite little boy asked me to read it again and again. For that reason, I gave it five stars. It is a good book to read for any child that might not want to go to bed.

 

Billy stalls going to bed and finds various excuses to come back downstairs to interrupt his parents with his reasons for not staying in bed. Finally they become impatient and demand that he stay in bed. He then sees "aliens" outside his window and is initially afraid but discovers they are friendly and want him to visit their planet which has all sort of good things for children to do. The next thing he knows is his Mother is waking him to get ready for school. He realizes he can visit the friendly aliens in his sleep any time he wants.

 

I received a .pdf copy from the author in a promotion. That did not change my opinion for this review.

For Those Who Know the Ending
For Those Who Know the Ending - Malcolm Mackay

I really enjoyed following Nate Colgan in Malcolm Mackay's last book so I requested this book as soon as I saw it. While Nate appears in this book as well I just wasn't as interested in this one.

 

This book mainly follows Martin and Usman who partner together to rob the Jamieson organization. Martin, who is new to the area, is reluctant to work with Usman but Usman knows that Martin is the gunman that he needs.

 

I can't say that I was all that interested in Martin or Usman. I found them both annoying in their own ways and found it hard to at times want to read about them. I did enjoy reading about the final "job" that they worked together and was happy with the outcome of that job.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Brain Food That tasted Good
Outliers: The Story of Success - Malcolm Gladwell

This was such an unexpected pleasure to listen to. The narration was fantastic. The information clear and written is such a way that I absorbed and considered the facts presented. For me that is amazing, I am easily distracted and seldom retain most information, ADHD yep. Some of the information seemed stretching, borderline ridiculous, but there were numbers to back the claim. I found his research on the learning systems around the world and the KIPP program the most interesting. It was just another wake up call for American school systems. I listened to this one and want to read it now so I can spend more time thinking about the revelations he explores.
I loved it. I think it was one of the best information books I've read on this subject.

A sleepless night ahead????
The Plot to Hack America: How Putin’s Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election - Malcolm Nance

My library's electronic collections yielded some gems today.

I've also downloaded the Mueller indictment in PDF to read in full for myself.

 

I'd rather be knitting or making jewelry or writing a contemporary gothic romance, but these political issues have disrupted my very existence far too long.
