The Water Is Wide: A Memoir

The Water Is Wide: A Memoir

Author:
Conroy's bestselling memoir about teaching impoverished students in South Carolina. The New York Times calls it "a hell of a good story." From the publisher: "The memoir of an inspiring teacher and the students who changed his life on an impoverished South Carolina island. Though the children of Yamacraw Island live less than two miles from the southern mainland, they can't name the US president or the ocean that surrounds them. Most can't read or write. When Pat Conroy arrives, an eager young teacher at the height of the civil rights movement, he finds a community still bound by the bitter effects of racism, but he is determined to give them a voice."

Water from My Heart: A Novel

From the publisher: "Charlie Finn had to grow up fast, living alone by age sixteen. Highly intelligent, he earned a life-changing scholarship to Harvard, where he learned how to survive and thrive on the outskirts of privileged society. That skill served him well in the cutthroat business world, as it does in more lucrative but dangerous ventures he now operates off the coast of Miami.

But when his choices produce devastating consequences, he sets out to right wrongs, traveling to Central America where he will meet those who have paid for his actions, including a woman and her young daughter."

Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time

Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time

Author:
Audible Deal of the Day. The ebook is not on sale. You do have to be an Audible member to get this deal. This is one of my favorite nonfiction books—it's the book I can't stop talking about. At its heart, the book isn't about walking at all. Instead, Speck aims to show how we can deliberately plan urban spaces to be useful, safe, comfortable, and interesting. At a deeper level, Speck reveals how our spaces shape our behavior, whether or not we're aware of it. Pragmatic, relevant, and completely fascinating. I've read it half a dozen times. More info →

A River in Darkness: One Man’s Escape from North Korea

A River in Darkness: One Man’s Escape from North Korea

For those participating in the 2019 MMD Reading Challenge, this could be your book in translation. From the publisher: "Half-Korean, half-Japanese, Masaji Ishikawa has spent his whole life feeling like a man without a country. This feeling only deepened when his family moved from Japan to North Korea when Ishikawa was just thirteen years old, and unwittingly became members of the lowest social caste. His father, himself a Korean national, was lured to the new Communist country by promises of abundant work, education for his children, and a higher station in society. But the reality of their new life was far from utopian. In this memoir translated from the original Japanese, Ishikawa candidly recounts his tumultuous upbringing and the brutal thirty-six years he spent living under a crushing totalitarian regime, as well as the challenges he faced repatriating to Japan after barely escaping North Korea with his life."

Unleashing Mr. Darcy

Author:
From the author of Summer Reading Guide pick The Accidental Beauty Queen, the story of a woman teetering on the edge of thirty not in want of a husband, despite the truth universally acknowledged.

Caring for a pack of show dogs in England seems the perfect distraction from the scandal that ruined her teaching career. What she doesn't count on is an unstoppable attraction to billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy. The London tycoon's a little bit arrogant, a whole lot sexy...and the chemistry between them is disarming. When passion is finally unleashed, might Elizabeth hope to take home more than a blue ribbon?" More info →

I Know How She Does It: How Successful Women Make the Most of Their Time

I Know How She Does It: How Successful Women Make the Most of Their Time

Can a woman truly have it all? 168 Hours author Vanderkam explores what true balance looks like, meticulously upending the dominant culture narrative that presume a woman's professional success comes only at great personal cost. In this data-driven narrative, based on hundreds of time logs from successful professionals, she shows how women who "have it all" succeed at work, enjoy their families, and make time for themselves. An important (and readable) contribution to the ongoing discussion of work/life balance, and I'm not saying this just because a post on this blog inspired the study. More info →

If you're in the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club, you'll rejoice at seeing this on sale today. It hasn't been on sale in more than a year and it's our pick for May.

When she gets an email from an unidentified boy who calls himself "Somebody Nobody" offering to be her spirit guide to her new school, she doesn't want to say yes—but she really needs his help. A sweet and fun teen romance, but also a pitch-perfect portrayal of the grieving process. More info →

Slouching Towards Bethlehem

Slouching Towards Bethlehem

Author:
From the publisher: "In twenty razor-sharp essays that redefined the art of journalism, Joan Didion reports on a society gripped by a deep generational divide, from the 'misplaced children' dropping acid in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district to Hollywood legend John Wayne filming his first picture after a bout with cancer. She paints indelible portraits of reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes and folk singer Joan Baez, 'a personality before she was entirely a person,' and takes readers on eye-opening journeys to Death Valley, Hawaii, and Las Vegas, 'the most extreme and allegorical of American settlements.' It is the definitive account of a terrifying and transformative decade in American history whose discordant reverberations continue to sound a half-century later."

Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy

Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy

Author:
From the publisher: "'Mercy is radical kindness,' Anne Lamott writes. It's the permission you give others—and yourself—to forgive a debt, to absolve the unabsolvable, to let go of the judgment and pain that make life so difficult. Lamott ventures to explore where to find meaning in life. We should begin, she suggests, by 'facing a great big mess, especially the great big mess of ourselves.' Full of Lamott's trademark honesty, humor and forthrightness, Hallelujah Anyway is profound and caring, funny and wise—a hopeful book of hands-on spirituality." More info →
