Denna diskussion är för närvarande "vilande"—det sista inlägget är mer än 90 dagar gammalt. Du kan återstarta det genom att svara på inlägget.
Also reading a book from last years SantaThing: How we die. Excellent, but a heavy subject matter. It needed a mention in the very excellent Being mortal for me to actually start reading it.
Also reading Cheap, which has an interesting subject matter, but I feel it's a bit anecdotal; it doesn't go a deep as it could.
I had to change three of the touchstones in this post: they pointed to the girl with the dragon tattoo, the very hungry caterpillar and the hound of the Baskervilles.
This is starting to get very annoying.

This is the true story of C. Nicole Mason who as an African American experienced life in poverty in Los Angeles, California during the 60s and 70s. She discusses what it was like to live in poverty, going to schools who did not encourage the academic growth of her race, struggling with moving from home to home and when she was determined to go to college, not knowing how to go through the ropes of applying for college since no one in her family or neighborhood went to college. She was able to beat the odds and got into Howard University and has made a success of her life. Very eye opening!
