“That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.” – Jhumpa Lahiri
How’s the situation in your country? With this I mean, in relation with this cruel pandemic.
We are again in a lockdown and we have been for more than a year now Perks: I have more time to read. Cons: I haven’t been with my family (I am an expatriate in a foreign land) for close to two years now.
So instead of me wallowing, I think The Artsy Ready Girl‘s topic for the week can give some respite – “Books On My Summer 2021 TBR”.
Genre: Filipiniana (books written by Filipino authors) – Trying to patch my missing of the Philippines by reading stories written by my “kabayans” (fellow countrymen).
- All My Lonely Islands by V.J. Campilan
- Dear Distance by Luis Joaquin M. Katigbak
- Scent of Apples by Bienvenido N. Santos
Genre: Non-fiction – some are hardcore tech (but it’s part of my job, so…)
4. The Beautiful No: And Other Tales of Trial, Transcendence, and Transformation by Sheri Salata
5. Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It by Chris Voss, Tahl Raz
6. In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives by Steven Levy
7. The Future Is Faster Than You Think: How Converging Technologies Are Transforming Business, Industries, and Our Lives by Peter H. Diamandis, Steven Kotler
Genre: Classic + Poetry – these are for the poet in me.
Share your TBR (summer or winter), too!
