For Nevada, I read “Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base” by Annie Jacobsen, and it took me ages because this book is fairly long and just absolutely packed full of information.
I really really enjoyed this book and not only because it put some of my alien fears aside, but also because it was very interesting and you read things in it and you’re like “Whoa. Wait. What?” and then you re-read the same thing over and over until it sinks in that that is a thing that really happened. This is one of those books where you need to let your thoughts process the information a little longer than usual.
After reading this my brain feels full in a really good way. I recommend this if you’re at all interested in Area 51, and really, even if you’re not because this book was kind of mind blowing.
