2021-01-06T15:14:40-05:00

While I put the finishing touches on the pie-charts and calculations from 2020’s reading log, there are just a couple other books to talk about that I read (mostly) over the holiday break. Ruth Gilligan’s The Butchers’ Blessing (2020) is praised by two writers who snag my attention: Colum

Erin Brockovich’s Superman’s Not Coming (2020) #ReadtheChange

2020-11-27T16:14:32-05:00

This isn’t a book I planned to read. From my perspective, Brockovich’s activism is more relevant to American readers and I’d be better off reading Maude Barlow’s Whose Water Is It Anyway? (2019). In some respects, this is true. Brockovich does present some detailed information and updates about water

Laura Trethewey’s The Imperilled Ocean: Human Stories from a Changing Sea #ReadtheChange

2020-10-14T09:38:42-05:00

In Short presents a 300-word and spoiler-free summary, intended to have a broad appeal; In Detail focuses on one aspect of the book which I found remarkable, which might interest those who have already read the book or those with an interest in the mechanics of writing; In Other

Kerri Sakamoto’s Floating City (2018)

2019-02-11T16:07:34-05:00

It’s fitting that a story which includes the visionary figure of Buckminster Fuller is rooted in possibility rather than history: “It is not intended to follow the precise history of what was, but rather to imagine a story that might have been.” This note precedes the novel and sets
