All of our followers on Facebook already know that Crystal Clear Resources typically posts a reading list for each month. These books are curated from ones that the team and I are currently reading, some that we are revisiting, and some that we love too much to ever let linger far away from our fingertips.
In the future, updated reading lists will be posted here, so in the interest of completeness (something our team appreciates), we are posting the previous three reading lists here for your – and our – enjoyment.
September 2017 – “Our team’s current reading list includes some fantastic new books (with a notable shout-out to Benjamin Percy and UntitledTown) and some amazing classics!”
- Harnessing Our Digital Future: Machine Platform Crowd – Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson
- Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio – Pu Songling
- Sour Heart – Jenny Zhang
- The Dark Net – Benjamin Percy
- The Secret Place – Tana French
- Ready Player One – Ernest Cline
October 2017 – “The books we are reading this month are wonderfully diverse – from Neil Gaiman (can you tell one of us has been talking up the American Gods tv show?) to The Daemon Knows, which pairs authors (like Ralph Waldo Emerson and Emily Dickinson) and puts them in conversation with one another in order to get at the ideas of inspiration and the sublime.
Of particular note is Vicky Reed’s memoir, a thoughtful exploration of hope and healing. We had the pleasure of meeting her at UntitledTown and her work is truly inspirational.”
- The Daemon Knows – Harold Bloom
- American Gods – Neil Gaiman
- Path of the Turquoise Warrior – Vicky Meawasige Reed
- Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World – Jack Weatherford
- Euphoria – Lily King
- His Bloody Project – Graeme Macrae Burnet
November 2017 – “Our team’s November reading list is fairly non-fiction heavy this month, with the notable exceptions of Dear Cyborgs and Girl in Snow.
Also noteworthy is A Crime in the Family, a fantastic memoir in which the author discovers and confronts his own family’s entanglement with the Nazis during WWII.”
- A Crime in the Family – Sacha Batthyány
- Girl in Snow – Danya Kukafka
- The Long Shadow of Small Ghosts – Laura Tillman
- Ethics in the Real World – Peter Singer
- Dear Cyborgs – Eugene Lim
- The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt’s New World – Andrea Wulf
Until next month – Happy Reading!
