    Milk alternatives

    @MamaBear My understanding of 'milking' soybeans, nuts, and oats is that you crush them a bit to increase the surface area, then soak them to 'milk out' the flavor and nutrients. Strain out the solids and evaporate off some water, and you got plant milk. My guts tend to mutiny when I eat dairy...

    Into the Bright Open: A Secret Garden Remix by Cherie Dimaline. I'm not terribly far into it (about 15%), but so far all that's been 'mixed' is setting and protagonist genders. Oh, and some romantic awakening and (very obvious) family stuff. :sad: I'm a little disappointed, actually; I don't...

    The Imposition of Unnecessary Obstacles by Malka Ann Older. It's the sequel to The Mimicking of Known Successes, which I really loved. A gaslamp mystery set on a gas giant planet? Yes, please! :happy:

    It All Adds Up: The Story of People and Mathematics by Mickael Launay. This is a fun, general history of math, and I'm really enjoying it! The author's voice is great, you can tell he loves being a mathematician, and it's been a lovely easy read so far.

    My book: The Mimicking of Known Sucesses by Malka Ann Older. I love mysteries that are set on other planets! :excited: And right now that title could be referencing a few different things, so I'm excited to see if there's a title call in the book and what it will refer to. :LOL: Library's book...

    Non-fiction: Dare to Repair Your Car by Julie Sussman and Stephanie Glakas-Tenet. It's pretty old and more about maintenance and good practices than repair, really. There's lots of good information about how a car works and what a non-mechanic realistically can and can't do. It's written in...

    Library's book: All Our Hidden Gifts by Caroline O'Donoghue. I've recently gotten interested in tarot, so this one caught my eye. I'm really enjoying it so far, even if it is a little creepier than I was expecting. I love the drawings of the deck the character is using - it's supposed to be from...
