Friday Reads 5/19/17

Guess what!? This list will look different from those of recent weeks.

Wednesday, I came home early from work because I have some virus that terrifies everyone around me. I took a nap, then I started working on my school work. Miracle of miracles! I finished all my school work by 8:30! I spent the next two hours reading!!! It was amazing. I finished two books!

So this week's list will look a bit different! I'm so excited!


NeuroTribes by Steve Silberman - Let's just get this out of the way early. I'm still reading this. I read a few more pages of it at 3:30 in the morning when I woke up coughing last night. So it is still getting some love. It's just slow.


Aspergirls by Ruby Simone - This is a book by an Aspie woman for other Aspie women and the people who love them. This pretty much fits Alyssa to a T, and it is very good. Her position is that Asperger's is actually a gift. I like that theory.

Power of less

The Power of Less by Leo Babauta - This is kind of minimalism for business. It talks about how to focus on one thing at a time and let go of the non-essentials. I'm liking it ok. It's very small, so hopefully, I'll get through it and move on to other minimalist books soon.

By the Book

By the Book by The New York Times Book Review - This section is my favorite section of the Book Review. I used to subscribe to the e-version of this magazine, and pretty much this was the only section I made sure to read every week. If you're not familiar, By The Book is an interview with an author. They ask each author basically the same questions and print the interview. This book is a collection of some of those interviews. It's perfect for reading at the table because they are mostly 3-4 pages long.

Oh dear. I just realized I am reading 4 non-fiction books. That's not a good sign. Well, if it gets squirrely, I have plenty of fiction books to pick up.

What are you reading this week?
