Summer Reading

I’ve put together a short list over at Ethnography Matters for my summer reading. Between this list and Grace’s 32 books before school starts in August, it’s a busy summer of books. Yes, I promised my daughters I would read all their summer reading too.

In the past week I finished both The Disappearing Spoon and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, both of which should have gone on this “business-y” summer reading list which is really focused on taking excessive amounts of data and crafting a coherent story. Next up is From Counterculture to Cyberculture. Let’s just say I was glad Grace’s list included the tremendous American Born Chinese as a palate cleanser.

At the end of the summer, I’ll craft a post over at Ethnography Matters with my thoughts on the five books outlined there.

All junk reading suggestions in September will be much appreciated!
