Books

Hey all,

As some of you may know my comfort genre when it comes to books is Early 20th Century Boys’ Adventure novels; of which I bought a literal grocery bag full when I was home in Pennsylvania for the winter holiday. While I’ve been chewing through them and enjoying the fluffy stories where bad things may happen but you know the heroes will triumph in the end I do occasionally need to take break from the predictable plots and inherent racism of the genre. I’ve out down my collection of ripping yarns for the time being to pick up Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann. It’s a fascinating true crime book about the 1920’s serial killings of members of the Osage tribe, the wealthiest individuals, per-capita, in the world and the intervention in the investigation by the fledgling agency that would grow into the Federal Bureau  of Investigation. So far it’s been a gripping tale of greed, murder, and betrayal. I highly recommend it if you’re interested in Native American affairs, the history of the FBI (the Osage murders where the FBI’s first murder investigation) or true crime stories in general. Well written with wealth of information and pictures Killers of the Flower Moon is a thoroughly enjoyable read so far.

Hailing from the gently rolling hills of South Eastern PA, my favorite hobby is collecting obscure skill sets. This desire has lead me on all sorts of adventures from art school to Ship rigging and sailing, with brief stops along the way making and selling candy and working in a print shop. I'm constantly devouring books and knowledge to embark on new projects and adventures, I hope you'll join me on the journey.
