Resistance Reading List 3

 

Besides writing postcards and making phone calls to my representatives regularly, and of course going to all the protests my introverted self can stand this reading list is my ongoing project to better our political future.

Far too little attention is paid to women, refugee, POC, and LBGTQIA writers. So for the next year (all of 2017) I am concentrating on just reading them. ┬áHere is what I’ve read since my last #Resistance list:

 

Bad Feminist: Essays – Roxane Gay

Behind the Beautiful Forevers – Katherine Boo

Men Explain Things to Me – Rebecca Solnit

Furious Happy – Jenny Lawson (Hilarious and better than the 1st book ‘Let’s Pretend…’ though that was funny too)

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened – Jenny Lawson

Mastermind: How to think like Sherlock Holmes – Maria Konnikova (another Sherlock Holmes themed book as I always must have one but save your money – meditate and focus on the details – there you go that’s the idea)

The Art of Peace – Morihei Ueshiba (Lovely quotes and philosophy)

Aikido and the Harmony of Nature – Mitsugi Saotome (heavy read)

Sammy Keyes and the Hotel Thief – Wendelin Van Draanen

From the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil Frankweiler – E.L. Konigsburg

 

Honorable mentions! Favorite books I read last year that all happen to be women:

Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance – Angela Duckworth

Echo – Pam Munoz Ryan

All the Single Ladies – Rebecca Traister
