Books I Read in April

I’m slowly adding more books to my monthly totals. Ever so slowly.

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel A worldwide pandemic destroys most of humanity? Sure, I’m in the mood for nonfiction. This book always gets rave reviews but I really couldn’t get into it. I tried before and gave up fairly quickly. I got through most of it this time and still it just didn’t work for me.

Exhalation: Stories by Ted Chiang I wasn’t really in the mood for short stories. The problem with any collection of short stories is the stories I get into end too quickly and other ones just throw me off from the beginning. This collection is pretty amazing. It’s one of the few books that have held my attention for the past few months.

The Practicing Stoic: A Philosophical User’s Manual by Ward Farnsworth Worry only about things that you can’t control Sure, EASY TO SAY WHEN YOU’RE NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC. I mean, the book was good if you’re looking for an intro into stoic philosophy.
