I am posting one book per day from my extensive to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new. Don‘t judge me - I have a lot of books. Join in if you want!

A vibrant, lovely book about culture, food, and family. It features a selection of fulfilled women sharing what is special to them and how they describe their place in the world.
I saved quite a few recipes to try - they are all very approachable!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I picked up Obama‘s first memoir from an Audible sale a couple of years ago, where it has been patiently waiting in my library until just the right time. I‘m disappointed to realize that it was abridged - it looks like the unabridged audio was only released in 2021. I‘ll have to read the full book someday; I could listen to his gifted storytelling for hours. It abounds with beautiful writing, great insights, and refreshing candor. 🎧

Unbowed: A Memoir | Wangari Maathai

Pickpick

An incredibly interesting read, Maathai is an exceptional person. This memoir takes you through her childhood, her first marriage, her creation of the Green Belt movement, into parliament and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. There is so much to discuss after reading, I have so many? about her marriage & it's end, her relentless optimism and forward thinking, she is an inspiration. This book does a great job laying out her life.

The House of Rust: A Novel | Khadija Abdalla Bajaber

1. Their eyes were watching God by Zora Neale Thurston.

2. This is hard! I don't know if the tagged book has a storm in it, but the father of the mc is lost at sea, so I'm counting it. Other candidates include Storms of my grandchildren by James Hansen and Wave by Sonali Deraniyagala if m in the mood for sad memoir.
3. Any, but especially storms when I'm cozy & dry inside.

bnp Oops, Zora Neale Hurston. 1mo
AllDebooks Their eyes were watching God is such a good book 1mo
