Looking ahead to May | Notes from my Reading

April... so many things happened and it all whizzed by! Much of what didn't happen is now May's problem along with a ton of new things planned for May. May reading plans This month, I have more than my usual number of ARCs to read. I've been slowly reentering the galley world and doing much better at either picking the right books or actually finishing them. The first one is Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir, which I have already started. Ryland Grace wakes up from a deep sleep, not remembering who he is, where he is, or why he is where he is - which is pretty far away and leads to several freak-outs.

The Trouble With Women: This is a quick satirical look at all kinds of condescending remarks made by male "geniuses" who thought they could explain why there are not enough famous or talented women, especially in STEM. I initially started reading it as an amusing take on the history of men's comments on women, and although the entire book is written in a tone of jest, there were several eminent men that I lost my respect for, including Darwin and Baron Pierre de Coubertin. This is yet another coffee table book that was quick to read.
