I originally had Before I Fall which I'm switching to Task 25.4.


25.4. Sandy's task
Book 1: The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible by A.J. Jacobs

Sera Last post for me:

Finished

15.9 - Geek Pride Day

For this task, I read Quiet The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain by Susan Cain. The book takes both a scientific and cultural look at introverts, who face it, are more likely to be classified as the "nerds" in the American extroverted society. Cain also gives advice to parents on how to raise introverted children who don't fall into this category.

30.6 Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction

I chose Option A and read one fiction book We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver by Lionel Shriver and one non-fiction book Columbine by Dave Cullen by Dave Cullen. The connection between these two books is school shootings.

BOTH SUSAN CAIN AND DAVE CULLEN ARE GR AUTHORS

Total Points: 355 + 15 + 30 = 400
GR Authors: 6
BB: 500+ (2); 750+ (2); 1000+ (0) = 6 tickets
