Books I’m getting people

This post is a follow-up to our earlier post about what we were getting people… I wasn’t done shopping yet!

Books I’m getting people include but are not limited to:

When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir by Patrisse Khan-Cullors and asha bandele

Treat Your Own Neck

Hogfather; Soul Music

Personal Narrative of a Journey to the Equinoctial Regions of the New Continent: Abridged Edition (Penguin Classics) by Alexander von Humboldt.  N.B.: You really want the Penguin abridged edition on this one.  The unabridged is like 2000 pages of him talking about measurements.

(I’m not getting anyone this book but maybe I should!)

How to Invent Everything: A Survival Guide for the Stranded Time Traveler, by Ryan North

The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck by Sarah Knight

Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change by Stacey Abrams

The Spanish version of Petunia: the Girl who was not a princess

Lies my teacher told me

Black Tudors by Miranda Kaufmann

The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog by Mo Willems

Passing Strange by Ellen Klages

BONUS!  A podcast recommendation: Our Opinions Are Correct, in which two speculative fiction writers talk about SciFi.

So what books are you getting people?

    I got my Mom “Tiny Beautiful Things” by Cheryl Strayed, which I personally think is one of the best books ever. For my nieces, I bought “Cinder“, “Sisters“, and “Moxie” on the advice of Twitter. Giving books is my favourite!

    I had planned to share Becoming by M. Obama … then discovered over 90% of my book group already had read it or were reading it by the 3rd week after publication. I think book group may be a bubble but … wow! PS: everyone is really appreciating it. N. CA experience.

    I am giving tons of kids books. I think I spent $100 on books for my kids. I might have an illness.
