Liv's reading list (June)

Somehow it's already June and that means it's time to swap reading lists. May was an incredibly busy month for me in terms of travel and a handful of multi-day trips had me feeling like I was a permanent resident at Logan International airport. But, no complaints here! I had tons of fun with a fewreally great people and even managed to come back with a little bit of a tan.

All of that travel meant I spent a lot of time in transit this past month, and I'm the first to admit that a disproportionate chunk of my reading occurs on trains, planes and in cars. Some of that has to do with the fact that the moments I spend travelling somewhere are often the only moments that are entirely my own. When travelling from point A to point B I am often leaving one obligation in the pursuit of another. The moments in-between, however, are mine and mine only. My chance to discover new worlds. My chance to indulge myself.

This month, I'll be indulging in a bit of academic scholarship, memoir and fiction by way of Aliyyah I. Abdur-Rahman, Maya Angelou and Chinua Achebe respectively. For those who like lists, here's what I'm hoping to get through before my birthday next month:

  1. Against the Closet by Abdur-Rahman
  2. Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
  3. Gather Together in My Name by Maya Angelou

Thanks to both my clients and colleagues who have shared what they're reading via Twitter, e-mail and in-appointment. I love a good suggestion, so keep them coming!

Until next time,

Liv xx
