2018 Summer reading list

The Ageist Summer Read

These are our books for reading in the summer of 2018.

One of the hallmarks of getting a bit older is that we value our time more, and we tend to avoid bringing objects into our lives that we may need to discard. Thus the quest for the perfect summer book.  We have given this question a ridiculous amount of brain space, examining book lists, following up with in-store research and online reviews. It’s exhausting, all with the idea of selecting the perfect summer read.

Here is what we are liking: Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari. For something less heavy in your beach bag, our friend Richard Godwin thinks we should be reading Prisoners of Geography by Tim Marshall. Lucy Kellaway recommended Hot Milk, for a feverish, funny and surreal read about mom and daughter.  Beatrix Ost, future profile subject, recommended we pick up a WG Sebald book The Rings of Saturn: fact, fiction and a warping of time.  We have also spotted Claretta: Mussolini’s Last Lover: passion, love and fascism with Il Duce.  Awesome.
