#SelfImprovementSept Day 16: I find that the books in David Bowie‘s 100 Book List fall mostly under the #BookThatIsOutOfYourComfortZone category, including tagged book. I grouped the #BowieBookClub titles across themes, because I am a geek and an academic that way. See here: https://wp.me/pDlzr-hq7

For those of us who are in despair about the current state of affairs in the United States, this book encourages, demands, that we not give in to that despair, that we remember that this too shall pass, that it‘s what we do to re-educate ourselves that will make the difference. And re-educate ourselves, we must. It is up to us to speak up for intellectualism. Ignorance should not be a point of pride. Read this book! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #bowiebookclub

An excellent and sadly topical choice for #bowiebookclub

So, Duncan Jones, who is hosting the #BowieBookClub has just announced the title for May: "The Age Of American Unreason" by Susan Jacoby. Here is the link - found it in Book Depository! http://bit.ly/americanunreason

Finished #bowiebookclub. A stark reminder of what can happen if we take social welfare programs away.

ValerieAndBooks I plan to start this one very soon! 2y
Ferihearted Well worth it 2y

Hawksmoor | Peter Ackroyd

Bailedbailed

Time to call it a bail on Hawksmoor. It just was too much of a chore to try to read. I think I know why it went out of print. Ugh. It got republished after Duncan Jones picked it for the #bowiebookclub.

So far I‘m not doing well with this reading challenge. I liked Baldwin‘s The Fire Next Time (gave it a pick) and the next two are still TBR.

If May‘s pick looks questionable, I‘ll probably just abandon any effort to read every book picked!

ValerieAndBooks Note: Hawksmoor is also a #1001Books 😬 2y
Liz_M I didn't want to discourage you when I saw you were reading this, but I really didn't enjoy it. 2y
Suet624 Well now I know not to try Hawksmoor! Thanks for sparing me. 2y

ValerieAndBooks @Liz_M did you actually read through to the end? I got to about 1/3 when I decided that I had no idea what was going on each time I tried reading 😂. I hope his other books are better, as some of them are also #1001Books 😒 2y
ValerieAndBooks @Suet624 please don‘t 😂! It never made any sense! 2y
DivineDiana Good to know! I‘m still on the reserve list at the library! 😂 2y
ValerieAndBooks @DivineDiana I wonder how many before you are scratching their heads wondering “we had to wait this long for THIS?!” 😂 2y

🌜Through a book friend on Facebook who raved about it. She isn‘t too active here now, though. @Fantaghiro23 are you still here???
🌜YES! Goodreads does that for me.
🌜Oh yes! That‘s what I live for as a book blogger and teacher educator
🌜either tagged book or Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell for #BowieBookClub
