Phil, Queen's Square | April 2, 2018
In January, I made the bold suggestion that together we could become better read. To that end, I suggested titles to read each month, with the intent to help understand issues and to think deeply about the world in which we live.
In March I read and reviewed:
- American Wolf: a true story of survival and obsession in the West by Nate Blakeslee
- Embattled Nation: Canada's wartime election of 1917 by Patrice Dutil
- Bethlehem: biography of a town by Nicholas Blincoe.
In all three cases, I was left with the feeling that I’ve read three of the best books I have read or will read this year. So that makes April a little tougher, in that my next selection of books will have a high bar to meet.
So what’s up for April? This month I’ll be reading How to Fix the Future by Andrew Keen; Hacking the American Mind by Robert Lustig; World Without Mind by Franklin Foer; Spinning Magnet by Alanna Mitchell; and Anesthesia by Kate Cole-Adams.
