Thanks, Obama by David Litt
Rate this book

Humorous inside look at the daily grind of government and the life of a lowly White House employee, and also a tidy little coming-of-age story. Really enjoyed it. And I rewatched the Obama's Anger Translator Correspondent's Dinner sketch about three ...more

Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds

Don't normally go for books written in verse. I liked this one. Reveals itself little by little. Simple, parabolic, every word deliberate. Some "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" vibes.

Still love this book a whole lot and I promise it's not just because Razo was always my favorite non-Conrad male character (Please write one about Conrad, Shannon Hale!). Still funny, still a neat little mystery and gentle lesson about prejudice, dip ...more

Boxers & Saints

I finally found one. I found a great graphic novel. For adults. At last.
Dedicated to fostering empathy through art, culture, and point of view, Boxers & Saints refuses to take the at least semi-self-serving view I find in most graphic novels I re

Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Listened to the audiobook.

The performance element to the audiobook was the best part; Poehler and her ensemble seemed like they were genuinely hanging out and reading her book, and listening to it in the car made it feel like I was with them, which i

Seemed like practical, realistic advice. I even tried out a couple things on some toddlers I babysit.

So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson
Rate this book
Clear rating
I agreed with Ronson's conclusions before I even started reading, so it was a very cathartic read for me. There was really no way I wasn't going to like it. That being said, I appreciated the different angles he found to look at this emerging issue, ...more

Megan Whalen Turner
“No 'Glory shall be your reward' for me. Oh, no, for me, it is, 'Stop whining' and 'Go to bed'.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The King of Attolia

Aldous Huxley
“We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude. Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies—all these are private and, except through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never the experiences themselves. From family to nation, every human group is a society of island universes.”
Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception

Megan Whalen Turner
“Are you badly hurt?"
"Hideously," said the king, without sounding injured at all. "I am disemboweled. My insides may in an instant become my outsides as I stand here before you.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The King of Attolia

Gary D. Schmidt
“The world is Trouble...and Grace. That is all there is.”
Gary D. Schmidt, Trouble

Mitch Albom
“Holding anger is a poison...It eats you from inside...We think that by hating someone we hurt them...But hatred is a curved blade...and the harm we do to others...we also do to ourselves.”
Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven
