Like most, the past year plus has forced me to shift priorities and focus time and energy in different ways. While I carved out plenty of time to read some great books over the last twelve months, the hyper focused planning and iterating led to less overall reading during down time. So, this summer I have recommitted to reading, putting aside more time to read and escaping less to Netflix and Prime Video.
What’s on the list of for Summer 2021?
The Code Breaker by Walter Isaacson
The Yellow House by Sarah M. Broom
Difficult Conversations by Douglas Stone, Bruce Patton, and Sheila Heen
Thanks for the Feedback by Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen
Open Heart by Elie Wiesel
What were some of my favorite reads since June 2020?
The culture shifting read of 2020 that forced the world to rethink just about everything about race.
Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson
An eye opening recount of the inequities in the American criminal justice system and the way racism has destroyed the lives of innocent people and their families.
Caste by Isabella Wilkerson
Drawing on the parallels of the Indian caste system, Nazi Germany, and American slavery and systematic racism, Wilkerson offers readers, what should have been obvious, a new way to think about inequities and how we need to respond.
Talking to GOATS by Jim Gray
The perfect escape during the pandemic for me. Craving live sports, Jim Gray takes you behind the scenes to conversations and interactions with many of the greatest athletes of all-time.
Stay tuned for updates on the summer reads!
