I’ve been intending to make a book/reading-related post for a while, but instead, I just kept filling my to-read list with mass quantities of all kinds of things. For example, this is just one wish-list and it has 101 items, most of which are books, ranging from James C. Cobb’s Away Down South: A History of Southern Identity (added today) to Kathryn Chetkovich’s Friendly Fire (added almost 7 years ago? My bad.) This is what I’m digging through today:
I’ve been brushing up on politics lately, and walked by President Bill Clinton’s 2005 memoir My Life in a bookstore (I later borrowed it through my library’s Kindle system) and thought it might be interesting. So far, so good! You can check out a preview here. I have to be honest, despite my predilection for the add-to-wishlist button, it’s really difficult to find time to read, and especially to dig in to something like I really want to. I do make a point of keeping up-to-date on industry news & trends on a daily basis, so below I’ve listed a few articles around the web, you might enjoy and/or find interesting.
