Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly

A fascinating story and a phenomenally well-written book. Highly, highly recommended.

A Square Meal by Jane Ziegelman and Andrew Coe

A bit of this felt like irrelevant padding, but most of it was very interesting.

Before the Fall by Noah Hawley

I'm still trying to decide how I feel about this one.

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah

I never would have picked this up on my own because I don't do celebrity bios, but it was free on Audible, so . . . and it was fantastic, because it wasn't really a celeb bio but rather a memoir of growing up under apartheid. Recommended.

Marriage: A History by Stephanie Coontz

Fascinating. (And accidentally fascinating in the ways in which it is already out-of-date after only a decade.)

The Fireman by Joe Hill

If this had been 1/3 the length, it would have been great. But I was resentful by the time I finished it.

I really, really enjoyed this. The narrator was so . . . much like me.
