Roger lives for words. His sister Dodger lives for numbers. They were created to take control of the world, but first they have to figure out how to do it without losing themselves in the process. Good thing they can rewind and try again however many times they want. I read this book twice since it was published and I know I'll read it again soon. It's like Undertale crossed with Escape from Witch Mountain. It's not like anything else you've ever read.

The final title of Hamilton’s 3-volume biography of FDR as commander-in-chief is a triumph. Compulsively readable yet with a masterful command of his source material, Hamilton gives us a fresh and detailed view of the last two dramatic years of FDR’s life from the wartime summit in Tehran, through the landings at D-Day, his election to a fourth term and the dying president’s  final Big Three conference at Yalta.

Mikhat Kamal arrives in France from Nablus in 1914 to study medicine. By the time he returns to Palestine, he has been subtly & indelibly changed by his experience. The next 20 years of the story takes him through currents of early 20th century Arab nationalism, Jewish settlement, & British rule in the years before Israeli independence, all through the lens of his dominating father's pressure to marry &join the family business. The writing is expansive & poignant, the story both intimate & wide-ranging.

I love cooking, but I HATE shopping for food, so this cookbook has saved/changed my life. This has become an important part of Wednesday Night Dinner at my house: cook time under half an hour, cost under $20, and several meals worth of food that tastes as fancy as eating out! Try the Flaky Pastry Chicken Pesto (pg 114)!
