What Inspires You?

Mon., Jan. 30
I succumb to the mid-winter blues every year. By the time I recover from the excitement of the holidays, usually around the end of the first week of January, I can literally feel the energy being drained from my body. It's usually cold and gloomy, and the days aren't getting longer fast enough to suit my body's circadian rhythm and need for sunshine. But I have devised a remedy for my mid-winter blues: surrounding myself with things that inspire me--like books.

My Year of Reading Memoir: Born A Crime by Trevor Noah

Wed., Jan. 18
I fell in love with memoir a few years ago, and authors are publishing new and exciting stories about their lives all the time. Each month I’ll highlight a different memoir, and I invite you to read along with me! This month I read Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime­. Despite my mild fandom, it became abundantly clear upon reading the inside jacket how little I knew about the remarkable circumstances of Noah’s early life.
