Here are the books I read the last half of May. Considering I was working full-time during this time, I'm surprised I got as much reading done as I did. I've said it before, but I'll say it again, clearly this is one thing which has normalized for me since Covid started, and I couldn't be more thrilled! It also gives me a lot of hope that eventually other things will normalize as well.
This might be deemed "chick lit" but I really think it was more than that. I loved this surprising book and how each character pushed the other one out of their comfort zones. I also liked the message that maybe the assumptions you have about someone at twenty might not hold up.
I finally bought myself a copy of Stamped From the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America because I realized I needed time to slowly digest the ideas rather than trying to cram them in in the three weeks I can borrow the book from the library. However, this version is very accessible. In fact, I'm thinking of taking it out again so Sam can read it. Some of it might go over his head but I think it would be helpful. I also want to get Stamped for Kids for Rachel (and possibly Sam). All this is to say, this version of Stamped was very accessible and I highly recommend it.
