    For most of us, traveling means visiting the most beautiful places on Earth - Paris, the Taj Mahal, the Grand Canyon. It’s rare to book a plane ticket to visit the lifeless moonscape of Canada’s oil sand strip mines, or to seek out the Chinese city of Linfen, legendary as the most polluted in the world. But in Visit Sunny Chernobyl, Andrew Blackwell embraces a different kind of travel, taking a jaunt through the most gruesomely polluted places on Earth.

    Interesting information, however it just seemed the India visit was the weakest in information and storytelling.

    No one writes about family quite like Drew Magary. The GQ correspondent and Deadspin columnist's stories about trying to raise a family have attracted millions of readers online. And now he's finally bringing that unique voice to a memoir. In Someone Could Get Hurt, he reflects on his own parenting experiences to explore the anxiety, rationalizations, compromises, and overpowering love that come with raising children in contemporary America. In brutally honest and funny stories, Magary reveals how American mothers and fathers cope with being in over their heads.

    She was called “the ship that God himself couldn’t sink,” yet on her maiden voyage, the ship Titanic brushed an iceberg and sank less than three hours later, carrying 1,503 men, women, and children to their death. In this dramatic and historic recreation of the bravery and agony that marked that fateful night, author and historian Walter Lord paints a portrait of the last hours of the Titanic’s first and final voyage.

    America’s largest city generates garbage in torrents - 11,000 tons a day on average. But New Yorkers don’t give it much attention. They leave their trash on the curb or drop it in a litter basket, and promptly forget about it. And why not? On a schedule so regular you could almost set your watch by it, someone always comes to take it away.

    But who, exactly, is that someone? And why is he - or she - so unknown?

    What did you like best about Picking Up? What did you like least?

    It seemed like an interesting topic as I knew nothing about how sanitation operates. However, it turned out to be a snoozer. IMO, it went into too much history of sanitation for my taste.


    What three words best describe Mary Kane’s voice?

    No problem with the narration


    Did Picking Up inspire you to do anything?

    man up and finish the book
