(2) Washington Black: A novel by Esi Edugyan — an award-winning novel brought to my attention again by being on President Obama’s 2018 list of favorites — wanted to have at least one piece of literary fiction that didn’t need to be read in 21 days
(3) That Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means: The 150 Most Commonly Misused Words and Their Tangled Histories by Ross Petras — how could I resist this?
(4) The Overstory: A Novel by Richard Powers — always enjoy his books — read a sample and became intrigued by the centering of the story on the trees rather than the people
(5) The Source: How Rivers Made America and America Remade Its Rivers by Martin Doyle — since climate and water issues are often topics I post about, you know this was a no-brainer
(6) The Broken Ladder: How Inequality Affects the Way We Think, Live, and Die by Keith Payne — as our economic layering gets more ossified, might as well find out how it shapes our lives
(8) The Gentleman Bastard Series 3-Book Bundle: The Lies of Locke Lamora, Red Seas Under Red Skies, The Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastards) by Scott Lynch — science fiction that I used the $14 credit for — usually I just go for the KU books
