What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”


While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

Off the Sidelines

Off the Sidelines - Kirsten Gillibrand Part campaign biography, part political manifesto. Interesting to see the thought processes of one of the few women in Congress who have talked openly about the intense sexism still going on (or who at least will write it down in their memoir).

Interesting especially in light of current choices for candidates for president in 2016 (but that's fair to say about any political book for the next 18 months)
