Book: Becoming Monday

Feld Thoughts

Constable’s near term sci-fi book Becoming Monday. It took me about ten pages to get my bearings, which is pretty fast for a book like this. Like all good books in this genre, it wanders up to the edge. The post Book: Becoming Monday appeared first on Feld Thoughts.

Book: Portrait of Resilience

Feld Thoughts

Daniel Jackson created a magnificent book. Reading this book made me wish this book existed then. If this book had existed, I would have looked at the photos, read the stories, and realized both that I wasn’t alone and that I eventually could be ok.

Book: Tulsa 1921

Feld Thoughts

I do this by reading a book. And books. When I’m interested in something, I read a book on it. Since I’m reading one book on racial injustice each weekend this summer (and, given the pile of books I’ve accumulated, I expect I’ll continue into the fall), I decided to make my Saturday book Tulsa 1921: Reporting a Massacre. I chose it carefully after reading the backgrounds of a few other books. Books anti-racist books

Book: How to Meditate

Feld Thoughts

A week ago, while proofreading a draft of Jerry Colonna’s upcoming book, I noticed a few sections where he mentioned Ani Pema Chödrön. When he referenced her book How to Meditate , I went on Amazon and bought a physical copy to read. With Brooks the Wonder Dog at my feet, I relaxed into what was a wonderfully written book on Meditation. The book reinforced a lot of what I’ve experienced with meditation while giving me some new thoughts about it.

Book: The End of October

Feld Thoughts

I have no idea how much was modified to suit the actual reality, but given the time frame for publishing most books, my guess is “not that much.” In contrast, many books do not. We are still early on in the Covid-19 pandemic – probably 25% of the way through Wright’s book. ” I’m not suggesting any of these things are true or false, but rather recommending the book as perspective on the bad path that might be in front of us.

Book: Digital Minimalism

I finally got around to reading his most recent book, Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World and my friends were correct. Newport is famous for being a millennial, computer scientist, and a book author who doesn’t have a social media account. Digital Minimalism is complementary to Jaron Lanier ‘s book Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now , but I found Newport a lot more comfortable and convincing.

Book: Armada

Feld Thoughts

Ernst Cline’s second book, Armada , is almost as wonderful as his first book, Ready Player One. Both books are scifi. Both books are heavily gamer influenced. It was simply awesome how many ways Cline could weave my late adolescence and early adulthood into a fast pace book about the potential end of humanity which takes place almost in real time as you are reading it (I think the book took place over – at most – a few days.)

My goal with reading these books is to bring a beginners mind to racial equity, allow myself to feel uncomfortable while reading, and let the impact of what I read over the summer accumulate, with a hope that I can personally eliminate many of my unconscious biases, unhelpful behavior, while unlearning (or challenging my own) perspectives that I’ve built up over my 54 years as a White person in America.
