Parenting

Productivity & Management

Non-Fiction

  • How to Be an Antiracist: Incredible book that intersperses the story of the author with an overview of modern racism. This is one I’d recommend that everyone read. 5/5
  • The Lion in the Living Room: How House Cats Tamed Us and Took Over the World: The amazing story of how cats got themselves in our houses and our lives. Convincing that cats are basically useless but we love them anyway. 3/5
  • Spark: The New Science of Exercise and the Brain: A good collection of research informing how exercise has benefits beyond just the physical. However, some of the leaps they make are a little stretched. 3/5
  • The World Atlas of Coffee: I love James Hoffman, and this book delivers on his charm. This is a true atlas that talks about growing regions, methods of growing, and roasting. If you’re into coffee at all, it’s a good read. 3/5
  • Back in the Frame: A great read about the joys of getting back on a bike as an adult. I learned a lot from the way that Jools describes the feeling of being a black woman in cycling. It helped me better understand the need for safe and empathetic spaces. And Jools’ love of cycling is contagious. 4/5
