What was the best book you read in October?
Plus the Anderberg family's favorites for the month.
Hey there, readers!
These Tuesday emails originally started a couple of years ago as a paid subscriber benefit. Since I’ve changed my approach to paid subscriptions, I’ve also been rethinking what the Tuesday edition looks like. In general, I’m going to make these updates shorter and more interactive (the comments section on discussion posts can form your TBR for years to come).
It’s in the comments that this incredible community comes alive and I’d love to see even more of that. Ya’ll are awesome readers and I love hearing about the diverse range of what everyone is reading and enjoying.
Today I’m sharing our family’s favorite reads for October — be sure to let me know yours too!
The Anderberg Family’s Favorite Reads of October
Jeremy: Zero Fail was a delightful surprise that perfectly balanced apolitical reporting with political history. I also read Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment for the first time and was totally enthralled. (The translation I read was fine, but I’ve heard great things about this new one.)
Jane: In a big month of reading (thanks, COVID), Iona Iverson’s Rules for Commuting stood out for Jane. This uplifting story about strangers who meet on their daily train commute hit all the right notes.
Graham (8 years old): Our oldest kiddo has been making his way through the Colorado Children’s Book Award nominees; B. B. Alston’s Amari and the Night Brothers — as well as the sequel — has been his favorite so far.
Willa (5 years old): Our journey through DK’s children’s anthologies continues. The Mysteries of the Universe, which is all about our solar system and outer space, is really fun and might be my personal favorite.
Bo (2 years old): Any “touch and feel” book is great for the 2-year-old set. Touch-and-Feel Tower Animals is on our bookshelf, so it’s currently Bo’s favorite.
