summer reading

31 July 2013

This summer has been fantastic in terms of getting to read. I don’t know whether I can attribute that to an improved environment, not having an opportunity to watch TV at night, or because of the great many interesting books available on Kindle from my public library, but I’m grateful all the same.

What I’ve read thus far (yes, I’m late to the game on quite a few of these):

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot (best thing I’ve read in years, by the way)
Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
Lean in by Sheryl Sandberg
Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss
The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo

What I hope to read/finish reading before the summer ends:

Ghana must go by Taiye Selasi
My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor
Americanah by Chimamanda Adichie
Heterosexual Africa? by Marc Epprecht
Being Maasai, Becoming Indigenous by Dorothy Hodgson

Do haba na haba readers have any recommendations from their summer reading lists?
