I bought some good ones, I think. But my favorite was Shu's: "Weapons of Math Destruction." I think he is going to love it!

Math destruction? For years I thought an algebra was a mermaid's top.

My personal favorite is The Incineration of Frosty the Snowman.


Give a man a fish and he can eat for one day; give a man a fishing pole and he will find an excuse to never work again.

My daughter bought me "Code Girls" for Hanukkah - can't wait to start it!

Thinking over my recent book-club book reads, Kalleh, there was not a one I'd recommend for a holiday gift. The only one I thought was thoughty & kind of uplifting was "Another Brooklyn" by Jacqueline Woodson. It's a poetic meditation on a Southern black girl's adolescence in Bkln, which ties psychologically back into Carolina early youth & why they left.

I found this nonfiction book list for the holiday season. The list looks interesting.
