Recently finished "The Biology of Doom" by Ed Regis. It's about biological warfare and the history of US involvement.

Just finished "American Rose" by Karen Abbott, it's about the stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. Born Ellen June Hovick her mom called her Rose Louise instead.

Abbott mentioned the term "circus party" meaning a wild sex party where anything goes but I'm not able to confirm that with any slag dictionary. It might be to old or obscure a term.

I'm trying to read Port Mortuary by Patricia Cornwell, but I can't seem to get into it. I keep having to give it back to the library. Maybe when I'm unemployed again, in a week, I'll be able to get into it.

Out of curiosity I got this book about the elements in the Periodic Table. I'm finding it very interesting and suggest it to anyone over the age of 12 or so. Easily understood and full of interesting tidbits about each of the known elements, of which there are 117, so there isn't much detail on each element.

The book: "The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales..." by Sam Kean

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.

Very interesting look at a woman whose's cancer cells have truly helped humanity. Her cancer cells are still alive and are used for research to this very day even though she, Henrietta Lacks, died in 1951.

BTW did you know that your normal cells double about 50 times and then start to die? It's called the Hayflick Limit.

I started reading It Happened in Italy by Elizabeth Bettina a few days ago.

It's about how the Italians helped the Jews during World War II by not deporting them to the Concentration Camps in Germany - instead they created their own internment camps where the Jews could live as freely as they could during the war.

So far it's a pretty interesting story, especially with how the author is sharing the stories of the survivors.
