Reading (adult)

OK, I’m going to actually try to read some adult books this year (managed about 300 kids’ books and 20 adult books last year).

2018

 

2018

  1. The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell. Classic, gothic creepy.
  2. Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen by Christopher McDougall. The culture and history of ultra-running (with opinions on evolution and footwear). Inspiring and fun.
  3. Manhood: the Bare Reality by Laura Dodsworth. Men’s relationships to their penises. Lots of anxiety, less relaxed love and fun. Quite miserable.
  4. My Name is Leon by Kit de Waal. Painful and poignant but beautifully told story of adoption.
  5. Other Household Toxins by Christopher Allen. Merciless flash fiction. Excellent.
  6. You Can’t Spell America Without Me by Alec Baldwin and Kurt Andersen. It’s sad that it’s funny.
  7. The Story of Life by Chris (Simpsons Artist). Flanimals meets Edward Monkton.
