Literary Recommendation #2

in Hive Book Clublast year (edited)

ArchiveImage by Nino Carè from Pixabay


The Library is not just a place for books, there are reference sources, documents, reports, monographs, and from time to time, a poster girl tuck neatly between the pages of an encyclopedia. 😅

Something I actually do 😂.

So, as a Bookworm myself, as a member of the Hive Book Club, I want to showcase literature I come across Hive, literature from fellow Hive Authors.

This is not a curation, it is literature I happen to love to read, commented, and want to share with my fellow Bookworms.

I am setting the post to 50% - 60% of the rewards to authors I am featuring here divided equally with a minimum of 5%, whichever is higher I will give — that ain't much, just a little thank you for the good read.

I'll try to focus more on new authors that I may come across, but I want to avoid plagiarist but have no way to determine if they are, so I will limit to recommendations (feel free to tag me on a post) and authors I know that have a good reputation.

Now, I found something really interesting:

#STEMgeeks (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), have you guys ever wandered to the science section of the Library and just read through various books about astronomy, medical science, and the likes?

Well, this is a part of Hive that features them.

I'll show here some of them science stuff that I really like from authors whose work I trust.

and some from General Section of the Library.



Title: Geodesics, General Relativity, And The Illusion Of Gravity!
by @yaziris

This one inspired me to write A Star is Reborn. Why? because the post is so well made that it explains clearly the principles in a really simple way, the author intentionally made it that way in consideration for the readers. 🧐

The research material is even credited at the bottom for credibility.. how cool is that!


The Hell is that?

Title: What's in the Slide? Guess and Win #2

by @adamada.stem

This is the person that introduces me to #STEMgeeks, as far as I know, he is a real-life pathologist (maybe I am wrong 😂).

I have been guessing his scanner shots from his first post, not for the 1 HBD price that will accumulate per post as long as nobody guess it is right. It is because it is really fun, I even discuss it with @demotry in HivePH and I even put this up at #PYPT thursday.

It is quite the challenge. So, I'll just let the prize accumulate.. then take it 😈



Title: Ingredients, Infusions, and Intuitions. Inkwell Challenge #48

by @dreemsteem

Do I even need to put Dreem here? Why yes! Why? Because it is literature I love to read, comment, and would like to share with you.

Aside from the fact it is well written, and the story is captivating, it is also because of the concept of the story or the idea:

"Well, simple - the mom used neurotransmitters, collected into bottles - to add to the recipes. hehehe she found all the magical combinations to evoke those memories that later translated into feelings hehehe she could manipulate people into doing things this way.... but she did it always for their good! hehehe" - Excerpt from the comments section of the post.

Neurotransmitters - Imagine that!



Title: Cricket Explained! Know the 2nd most popular sport in the world!

by @pravesh0

"Did I say rules? Pardon me... Cricket unlike any other sport doesn't have rules, it has LAWS. The laws were formalized in the 18th century and have constantly been improved/revised to date." - Excerpt from the post

The makings of a sports enthusiast or cricket enthusiast, from the way the post is written you can tell how much he loves the game, he may even be a player.

I am just not sure if this is "pravesh" or "not pravesh" 😂



Title: A father who was no father.....Inheritance, Ink Well Prompt #48

by @iskafan

This is me supporting that lovely cheerful girl Iska with her writing (all of her writing) and telling her she is a fun read that is full of her personality.

"PS: This writing sucks in my opinion. I dreaded writing this because I couldn't come up with something good enough. I had to do it to keep the promise I made to @samsmith1971. I hope the inkwell community offers some suggestions to help me improve better. 🥺. Thank you." - Excerpt from the post.

Your writing is fine! I myself dread writing, I would rather read... every time a comment pops up on my screen I am scared shitless of what could it be and I also often wonder if my idea is good enough, that thought alone makes me want to quit, truth be told... so I really admire how brave you are to make that story and post it.

My story A Star is Reborn almost got muted for not complying with community rules 🤣 (It is not fiction 😂, I thought it was, an honest mistake on my part), so, you actually did better than me.

You and me will keep writing, keep making mistakes and keep improving... that reminds me I need to make a freewrite 🤣.



Title: Midnight Dream [Digital Art]

by @ykdesign

This girl is a star at #PYPT, the image above is a testament to her skill.

Other than that, reading her post is like "Photoshop for Beginners". I am trying to incorporate her teachings in my banner-making skills 🤣.

I am often told she is a really nice person.




by @queenstarr

A girl I admire ever since I read how she persevered to becoming an architect (this is the part I hope I am thinking of the right girl 🤣, yes, I seriously remember it was architect). 😂

This was also presented in #PYPT

This is a really good read that is full of heart... and I recommend it, would even stake my reputation. (if I ever have one 😅)

Thank You Very Much

The Hive Book Club

All literature and images associated with each recommendation are of their respective authors and are borrowed from their works to better promote it.

  • Dreemport logo and Ink Well logo are borrowed from each respective community for the duration of the event.

Else, pictures and banners in this post were made or taken by myself, ©@khoola. In the cases when they were taken from other sources, I stated it in the sub-caption of the pictures.


Well done @khoola ... this is an excellent format and you really could call it a curation post. Our tendency to use the word curation to mean voting leaves us forgetting that to do a curated list is to select items on the list that have meaning for you which is what you're describing here. I may stop by the book club chat some day. Not today though, I have a post to write and then will be working on creating some books.

Thank you for your kind words,

I am refraining to call it a curation, for very obvious reasons 🤣, but hopefully someday I could.

Thank you very much for stopping by, I really appreciate it, from the bottom of my heart!


This is a great idea for a post. Not just saying because you featured me...LOL

Thanks for including my post in there. Just happy to see my posts in so many great posts.

Btw, I played cricket my entire childhood and have some amazing memories too. And a serious critic of the game.

~ not Pravesh

🤣 not pravesh...

You're welcome... well you are one of the Hive Authors I trust, and I definitely love your sports talk cricket!

Yes, I can tell by the way you wrote your post that you are a player of cricket, such dignity with each word spoken.

I'm not even sure anymore inspiring your "A Star is Reborn" post was a good or bad thing. 😅

Either way, I'm flattered. 😁

All the posts you mentioned (aside from mine) are great posts, worth reading!

And ofcourse your amazing posts too! I really enjoyed reading your "A Star is Reborn"


I'm not even sure anymore inspiring your "A Star is Reborn" post was a good or bad thing. 😅

LOL, it's a good thing! A Star Reborn — I am proud of it, and I am proud that the inspiration came from you... it will not be curated by the community or will it get a curie vote, because it bordered to Non-Fiction (which is an honest mistake) but I NEVER wrote for that... I wrote it because like any artist, scientist, or writer I was inspired to do so!

and your post... I am proud to promote it, I really like it... love it!

Thank You Very Much!

Thank you for your kind words.

it bordered to Non-Fiction

I beg to differ, as this whole universe is fiction. 😁

Might be hard to convince that community about it lol, but that's how it probably is. 🤷‍♂️

WoW this is so coool😎

You can now send $PIZZA tips in Discord via!

hey @khoola, I had another thought reading this post again today... you mentioned that you struggle to know how to identify plagiarism. You can use to run the first 1000 words of an article through it and it will give you a % response on unique vs plagiarised content....BUT it is not clever enough to identify when someone has cross posted or tagged different communities so you do need to look at the suspected plagiarised links to see if they are real plagiarism or simply the use of common phrases on completely different content, or the same content but for example the ecency front end version instead of the peaked version. If the suspected incidences of plagiarism are the authors own work then it's fine. Does this help at all? You can hit me up in DM if you want to know more about how useful this little tool is.

I'll try that out first.. and thank you for everything!

Hey, @khoola, I need to say Something to me right now. Anything 🥺

Hey, you can talk to me in discord... I sent a friend invitation.

Gotta ya. I just needed you to say something back to me 😃

Don't worry, I'll talk to you on discord though . Thanks for responding 💞💞
