reading grapes of wrath. best book ever.
infinite jest was a slog but it was worth it. you have to get about 200 pages in before it starts to sorta make sense.

I often forget why or how books get on my reading list.  I'm currently reading Pilgrim at Tinker Creek.  Only 12% in, but cannot for the life of me figure out how it ended up on my list.  It doesn't appear to have a plot and I've been learning about myself that....I like plots.  I can imagine that something about it being about a study of nature might have attracted me.  But, that's pretty vague

I've started to try to make a little note next to a book title on my reading list as to where the rec came from or why I am putting it on the list, which I hope will help me down the road, but this one didn't get that benefit.

I have An American Marriage by Tayari Jones next up on my kindle, so that's exciting.  Unfortunately, it's gonna take me a long time to get there because I have so little time to read until after the elections!

Istanbul, by Thomas Madden.

It's on my bucket list and it's got a fascinating history.

I'm toggling between two books at the moment -

Getting Things Done -  a Simple Guide To Become More Productive, Stress-Free, Get More Done in Less Time, and Be Highly Effective Today
by JONATHAN BRIGGS

Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less.
by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang

both are recommendations from the mustachian book club
