Joe’s Shelter-in-Place Book Club

March 13th - ???

My 2020 New Year’s Resolution was simply to “Read more. Eat less.”  By the end of February, I could report that my reality was exactly the opposite. :-(

Enter “social distancing” and its harsher cousin, “self-isolation”.  While arguably making it harder to “eat less”, it has given me the kick-start I needed to “read more”.

In this space, I will update the list of books as I finish them...

1.  Thanks a Lot, Mr. Kibblewhite: My Story - by Roger Daltrey
2.  The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956 : Volume 1- by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenitsyn
3.  Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations - by Amy Chua
4.  To Save a City: The Berlin Airlift, 1948-1949 - by Roger G. Miller
4.  The Who: 50 Years - The Official History - by Ben Marshall with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey
6.  One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich: A Novel - by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenitsyn
7.  The Ox: The Authorized Biography of The Who's John Entwistle - by Paul Rees
8.  Great Society: A New History - by Amity Shlaes
9.  Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don't - by Malcolm Gladwell
