2. The Nurses by Alexandra Robbins
3. Are You Fully Charged by Tom Rath
4. If You Find This Letter by Hannah Brencher
If I find myself with any extra, unscheduled reading time, are there any other non-fiction books I absolutely *must* read?
My reading travels this week took me in some very different directions. I went to the Middle East (Syria) on an archaeological dig with a famous mystery writer and her archaeologist husband in the 1930s. I was in New York with a woman learning to love herself no matter what size she is and watching as a vigilant group murdered men who abused, raped, or exploited women. I moved from Sweden to the US as a young mother finally had her congenital heart disease diagnosed just in time to save her life. I am still at the medical clinic with a father hoping to have his son "resurrected." I am also still entrenched in upper class Britain between the wars with a family modeled after the Mitfords. And I have just returned home from a tour of duty with a woman who looks like she's holding it together but has terrible potential swimming just under the surface. Where have your bookish travels taken you this past week?
