I’m feeling a bit restless as this is one of those odd days when I want to be left alone and not to speak to anyone and hide under my table, but suddenly everyone wants my attention. I have several personal messages waiting on my phone, got a few on Twitter too, and I don’t even care to mention my email. And soon I’m off to my writing class, and you know what, there is people as well. I have to go under the table and take a breather and change my attitude. This is going to be a socially active day, unlike I expected this morning.
But here are my favorite books this month:
- The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History by Elizabeth Kolbert. This is one of those books which makes you think and wish others would read it as well. It is the reason why I chose this as my number one book this month. (It also made me wish a different path with evolution had been taken with humans, more reason and ability to see further into the future.)
- Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. A great book. Something to make you think if our modern social structure is inevitable and functional. Should we rethink how we interact with others and with the world? A pretty amazing achievement for a history book 😉
- Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk / Jingo by Terry Pratchett. I had a tough time choosing one over another. Jingo is fun and handles the issue of war in a way that wants to change the world but doesn’t make you want to throw up. Invisible Monsters is a book that pushed me out of my comfort zone. Both are excellent books.
Have a spooky October!
