what I read in September 2019

First Degree by Kayla Hounsell (Audiobook. True account of a murder trial in Halifax a few years ago. Horrifying, but also gripping.)
Gratitude Daily by Nataly Kogan (Audiobook. Fine.)
Happiness by Thich Nhat Nan (Audiobook. It all comes down to mindfulness.)
Joyful by Ingrid Fetell Lee (Interesting analysis of why things give us joy and how we can create more of it.)
Murder by the Book by Claire Harman (A fascinating account of a brutal murder in 1840s London and how the crime was influenced by the salacious tales of brazen criminals that were popular at the time.)
The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie (Audiobook. Easy listening.)
The Path Made Clear by Oprah Winfrey (Lots of short excerpts of interviews with people possessing varying levels of insight into how to live a fulfilling life. Lots of God this and God that.)
Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice by Brené Brown (Audiobook of a live talk given by Brown. I probably should have read Rising Strong first because I felt like I didn’t know the lingo.)
Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents by Pete Souza (President Obama’s official photographer contrasts shots he took of Obama with the continual hate, filth and nonsense uttered by Trump.)
Sleuth: Gail Bowen on Writing Mysteries by Gail Bowen (Now I should read a book by Gail Bowen.)
Small Game Hunting at the Local Coward Gun Club by Megan Gail Coles (A challenging read, but worth it.)
This Is How: Proven Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decrepitude & More for Young and Old Alike by Augusten Burroughs (Audiobook. Self-help tough love-style.)
The Vagina Bible by Jen Gunter, MD (Audiobook. Some good information on basic anatomy and troublesome conditions, but I find her unfailingly superior tone really off-putting.)
