We’ve got work to do. But somehow, we still manage to find time to read a book. Or listen to an audiobook. Or watch a movie. Or binge-watch a TV show. Or flip through a magazine.
We’d like to know what y’all are reading too! So, please feel free to let us know in the comments.
|Complete Krav Maga: the ultimate guide to over 250 self-defense and combative techniques by Darren Levine & John Whitmas
The latest craze in self-defense. Who wouldn’t want to know how to knock down an attacker?
|The Battle of Darcy Lane by Tara Altebrando.
It is a Junior Fiction book about bullying, not knowing where you stand with friends and foes and wanting to fit in. Once again I was attracted to it by the cover art and it turned out to be a good book. I would definitely recommend it to a young reader.
|Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill.
It is about a young girl named Meena who is taken from her homeland in Africa by slave captors. She has to learn how to fend for/depend on herself. It is very hard to give a condensed summary of this book as it is long and steeped in history. It’s an amazing read that helps you imagine what slave life was like. This book was turned into a mini-series on the channel BET called “The Book of Negros” and that’s how I found out about the book. I recommend either one.
||Sanctuary (TV series)
It is about the extraordinary creatures that live on earth and the people who help them. Getting to join these people on their adventures to all four corners of the earth is thrilling. Are you ready for the adventure and to encounter creatures that you’ve only heard about in stories?
|The 100 (TV series)
97 years after a nuclear war, a community of survivors lives on a space station. It is decided to send 100 teenagers to Earth’s surface to find out whether the planet is again habitable.
|Cat Running by Zilpha Keatley Snyder
Set in California during the Dust Bowl era. Cat is the fastest runner in her school, at least until a destitute ‘Okie’ family comes to town.
I started reading this to keep myself entertained while hanging out at DuncanSwitch this past weekend.
