What I Read: June 2016
“Skills Finder 2.0” by Tom Rath. This seems like cheating or list-padding somehow, but my list needs padding so I’m going with it. I read this for work. All 1200 of us at my workplace were told to read it, and I wasn’t paying $27 for the kindle edition so I got it out of the library.Then I paid about $20 to do the test.
“Linger” by Maggie Stiefvater. She’s fabulous.
“1776” by David McCollough. Apparently I asked for this for Christmas years ago, though I don’t remember. Anyway, my sister gave it to me for summer Christmas, so I read it. It was way better than I expected! Somehow although I grew up in the greater Boston area, I was unaware that the British had holed up in Boston and were besieged there. Also, the clothes. Whoever painted the cover clearly had not read the book, because uniforms were not ubiquitous for the Continental army.
