What I Read — April 2021

Despite reading over 1000 pages of student proposals/dissertations (which requires attention and commenting), I managed six books this month! A few comments…

  • The book on money was super fascinating and I’d recommend it–very easy read. The authors have several other books as well that I plan to check out.
  • I didn’t know much about The Midnight Library when I got it from the library–I enjoyed the premise a lot as someone who wonders about similar things. I really enjoyed the ending. If you read it and want to talk about it, let me know.
  • The World Doesn’t Require You made me uncomfortable in a good way. I keep thinking about the book and what I learned from it. Here is the review from NPR, which is a good summary of my own thoughts.
