I Read Books (with cool covers)

My new career allows for ample time to consume the written word. And I took full advantage of it. I did not keep notes on the amount or which volumes I read but looking back over 2014 these were three that came to mind.

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan Purely for fun. My friend Kelly bought it for me if I promised to read it. It was done. It had everything I love – books, fonts, antique books, secret societies, social media, friends, hidden mysteries. Plus the cover glows in the dark.

A Tale for A Time Being by Ruth Ozeki I was just so intrigued by this story. Quantum physics, time travel, bullying, family and culture, voice. It was disturbing and comforting.

The Circle by Dave Eggers Excellent social commentary on social media and privacy. I still think of this book every single time I click “like” on any social media site.
