LHC #188: "How to Future" by Scott Smith with Madeline Ashby. Hard copy. Maybe I wasn't the right audience for this; I found it maddeningly vague. Read too much like a business book. I might have too many strong opinions to be a good futurist. LHC #189: "Bright Eyed" by RM Vaughan. eBook. Easy read. I totally enjoyed this. LHC #190: "The future of another timeline" by Analee Newitz. Audio book, and rightly so, because there was a song! It took about 90 minutes to have a sympathetic male character.

I loved the stories about moms of adults who aren't done with their lives, the treatment of the music industry not as a soap opera, but as people who are passionate about music, not about being famous.

Short Stories: I had to put something on OWW, so I forced myself to finish reading this and taking out the really obvious problems. This took about 10 hours longer than I expected.
