For the week of May 5 – 11, I am currently reading:
Fiction: A Man by Keiichiro Hirano
I am just starting A Man after finishing The Giver last week. I am reading this book in honor of Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The synopsis describing a hidden identity and the suspense surrounding it are very intriguing. I have not read many books set in Asia, however, Pachinko was an informative and well written fictional work I read in 2019 about Korean history and culture. I’m hoping to finish A Man this week.
Nonfiction: Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Sheerly
Although, this is an audiobook, it is taking me quite a while to move through it. This speaks more to the superb quality of this text. My library loan will end this week before I’m finished with my other concurrent nonfiction book, so I will return the loan and pick up again in the near future.
Nonfiction: The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss
I am currently in chapter 8 of this book. I am listening to the audio book version of this book as well. I am reading this book with a “slotted spoon.” It is turning out to be one that I do not love, so I am pulling out of it the bits that are useful. I’m actually NOT following Mr. Ferriss’ advice here which was to let go of any book you do not like.
