New Year Book List

I am always resolving to read more! Some years I do well and some years I do not. With the kiddos it has become a little more difficult so I am planning and starting now. My nightstand stacked with books and I have a full Amazon cart. I'm working to fine tune my list and am going with a book a month plan. I want titles that will expand my knowledge on issues, people, and history, with a little fun thrown in.

Here's what I have on my list as of now.

Part of my election recovery plan is to get more informed. So I want to check out these titles.

The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander

Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning in the American Right by Arlie Russell Hochschild

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance

Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
