Make America Read Again

I disagree with Laura Bush on plenty, but I cheered all the way when she said this:

The power of a book lies in its power to turn a solitary act into a shared vision. As long as we have books, we are not alone.

Not enough of my friends read, and it’s tragic. Reading is hands-down one of the best stress-relieving, knowledge-instilling, and relaxing activities out there. Yes, I’m still bitter that looking at your phone during a party is fine but reading a book isn’t.

So to the two of you who read this, my current reading list is here. I’m thinking of writing a “2016: Reading Recapped” post, but honestly, anything with 2016 in it sounds terrible.
