Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 27/7/20

It’s Pokemon GO Fest as I write this, so this will be short. Gotta catch them all!

Letters From Berlin by Tania Blanchard (available October 7th) arrived thanks to Simon and Schuster. Set in Berlin in 1943, Susie and her loved ones are at risk. She is determined to protect them any way she can, but that way is to become part of the Nazi world…with an opportunity to assist the Resistance.

Bezonomics by Brian Dumaine is a non-fiction read about how Amazon operates, how it affects the way we live and what we can learn from its disruptive business model.

The Art of Statistics: Learning from Data by David Spiegelhalter is not surprisingly, about statistics. I really like statistics, and this book goes through the fundamentals need to understand modern statistics and hence, the science and data with examples both good and bad.

  1. That looks like a great mix of books. I can’t remember the last time I read a physical book, even though I originally thought I’d never like an ereader. I’d be lost without it now. Happy reading x

  2. You always get such diverse and interesting books. My children loved Pokemon and now my grandchildren are Pokemon crazy. Even the 4 year old knows all the Pokemon names. Enjoy your books.

  3. Bezonomics looks really interesting. I’m getting more and more into nonfiction at the moment, and books examining the hows and whys of society I find fascinating. Good luck with Pokemon. 🙂

  4. Very different books! The Bezonomics looks interesting. I’m not a great fan of statistics as they can be so skewed when manipulated. But I suppose the Science of Statistics is a better way to look at it.
    Have a great week!
