Happy June Everyone!
While the Harry Potter’s are among my favorites, I feel a bit guilty listing those as my favorite of the month, so I’m going with “Moonwalking with Einstein”. It was one of the first non-fiction books that I enjoyed from start to finish.
I’m now at 20/50 books read for the year, and I’m on track.
Good luck to everyone who is participating in the June Camp Nanowrimo!!
Finished “Moonwalking with Einstein” by Joshua Foer on the train ride home last night. Turns out about the last 15-18% of the book are all the footnotes so I was much closer to being finished than I even realized. I was supposed to read this for book club months ago, but I wasn’t going to be able to make the meeting and I never started reading it.
I really enjoyed this a lot. Memory is a fascinating subject, and Foer did a great job of inter-splicing memory science, medicine, and lore. I don’t typically read non-fiction, but this was a great and very trade read. Perfect for someone who wants to learn but not feel like they are reading a textbook.
Edit: The cover makes sense once you’ve read the book which always makes me feel good. I always like being able to recognize more in a cover after a read.
I give this a solid A, and was enjoying it so much I got it for my mother-in-law.
18/50 and back on track.
Up next: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
