    Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life was a wonderful literary biography.
    I learned how much her mother, husband influenced her writing.
    She had to prove to both of them….that her writing was was worth reading.

    I looked over the longlist non-fiction National Book Award…my first choice for my next read would be ‘Locking up Our Own’ and ‘The Color of Law”.
    Thanks for the link!

    I’ve been seeing The Castle talked about a lot! I haven’t decided yet if I will read it, but I read The Girls of Atomic City by the same author and enjoyed it very much, so I will probably add this one to my list.

    Blink List sounds like an interesting concept, though as you said, it is no substitute for actually reading the book. I can see it might be helpful for previewing books and deciding if they are something you want to invest your reading time in, but the subscription for that is $79 per year! Any lower level and you get fed one ‘pre-selected’ book per day. That could be a huge waste of your time if the selection was a topic in which you have absolutely no interest!

      I actually still haven’t picked up The Girls of Atomic City, but it sounds like my kind of book and so does The Castle. Whoever designs the covers has my number too 🙂

      I didn’t notice the cost of Blink List, but wow, that’s steep. I can’t imagine paying that much for a service like that, especially when there are so many great podcasts to learn from for free.

    I’ve been having a fiction reading slump lately, so delighted to be back in non-fiction mode and checking out what you’re all up to again.

    The Canadian Science Literacy week looked amazing – their book list was certainly worth a browse http://scienceliteracy.ca/learn/
