Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 14/12/20

A very busy week with all my routines mixed up!

Elizabeth and Elizabeth by Sue Williams (available January) was a lovely surprise from Allen & Unwin.  It’s a story about two Elizabeths in the fledgling colony of Australia – one the wife of the governor, and the other married to an enemy of the establishment. Their husbands have wildly different views and the two are thrown together in chaotic times.

If Then by Jill Lepore is about The Simulmatics Corporation, the first data mining, targeted voting, manipulating consumers company. When was this? Back in 1959, they started work on directing human behaviours, long before we were all online.

Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall is about the women the white feminists forgot based on race, class, sexual orientation and disability. It’s about survival for all, not just a few.

  1. I read a book called If Then by Kate Hope Day a couple years ago. It was good, but totally different than this one. It always throughs me how many books have the same titles.

  2. I ordered IF THEN yesterday as a Christmas present for one of my daughters! I hope it’s good! I don’t read much nonfiction, myself. I have wanted to try a book by David Leavitt for a long time but I haven’t yet. Shelter in Place looks good! I wonder if my daughter would have liked that one better…oh, well!

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
