Minnesota Public Radio’s Daily Circuit recently held a show dedicated to books. It was a fantastic hour of radio. You can listen to the conversation here.
The featured guests were Ron Charles, Book World editor for the Washington Post and Rebecca Joines Schinsky, Director of content and community for Riot New Media Group. Callers also offered up suggestions for the year’s best books throughout the show.
In listening to the show, I added at least a dozen books to my must-read list. I brought my list to the library and it would seem others may have done the same because a number of the titles I wanted to check out were gone. Still, I was able to get Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy“ by Karen Abbott. In the book Abbott, a historian, shares the tales of women who served in battle and in intelligence roles during the Civil War.
Recently, I’ve been reading the Harry Potter books so it’s nice to wade into something more adult. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve really enjoyed reading about the wizard boy wonder but I needed something a little more mature.
In addition, I downloaded Un-Jobbing: The Adult Liberation Handbook. Recent changes in my professional life have made me reassess what my future should be. It’s an interesting book and has provided some insight on ways to simplify.
Any titles you want to share?
