book progress

Reading is power

I've finished three non-school books in October. I have read more for pleasure this month than I have since high school. Being able to escape school once in a while (or more) has really helped me manage my stress levels. This means that you great people will be getting bombarded with book reviews in the upcoming weeks. 

In September, I finished The Happiness of Pursuit, and you can find the review here.

October saw me finish Sophia Amoruso's #GIRLBOSS, Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl, and Christian Rudder's Dataclysm (a great use of OK Cupid outside of dating). Over the course of the month, I've purchased a number of urban planning/politics/economic books (my first academic love) and I have Amy Poehler's book coming sometime today.

Coming up on the November reading list, I have The Year Without Pants: WordPress.com and the Future of Work, Who's Your City?, Amy Poehler's Yes Please, and (maybe) Rise of the Creative Class Revisited.

December will have a focus on urban issues, with For the Love of Cities, The New Geography of Jobs, The Jungle, Death and Life of Great American Cities, and The Great Reset (can you tell I'll be done with school and on vacation most of this month?).

What books do you recommend checking out in the new year? I'm huge on urban planning and economics, open data/big data (especially with social issues), and anything written by a famous power gal.
