Friday Round-Up: March Read-Along!

Here's what I'm reading this March.

One thing I learned on my sabbatical is that books make me better. I read a LOT (it’s my job!) but I can be kinda lazy in my reading. By that I mean that it’s really easy for me to fit in popular fiction, as I literally *have* to read it for work. But one of the things I did on sabbatical was to mow through the NYTimes best books of 2018 and I got SO MUCH from reading that list, which contained more literary fiction and lots of nonfiction. I also always LOVE reading self-help stuff, but I’m not always good about actually sitting down and doing that work.

So, my only real New Year’s resolution was to be more intentional in my reading, and to make sure I read the following every month (alongside my popular fiction):

  1. One nonfiction book

  2. One self-help and/or (writing) craft book

  3. One literary novel or memoir

For March, I’ll be reading the following:

  1. How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi

  2. Buy Yourself the Fucking Lilies by Tara Schuster.

  3. What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Blacker by Damon Young
