Skolcial Distancing: What’s everybody reading?

Break out the books!


Hey, everyone! I apologize for letting this series drop off a bit, but since it looks like we’re in for a bit more Skolcial Distancing in the midst of the coronavirus situation, it looks like I’d better pick it back up again. We’ve already looked at the worlds of television and video games for what we’re doing while we’re sheltering in place, but now it’s time to move on to a different realm.

If you’re a reader, what books are you reading?

I’ll be honest. . .I don’t read as much for pleasure nearly as much as I used to or probably as much as I should. I’m not sure if I can even remember the last non-fiction book I read cover-to-cover. I’m doing academic stuff right now, but I’m guessing that National Security by Donald Snow and U.S. Foreign Policy and Defense Strategy by Derek Reveron (et al) would bore the hell out of most of you.

One non-school related book that I have found time for recently is a book by Richard D. Parker, PhD, called Leadership Lessons from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s a pretty short read, and it’s pretty entertaining.

But enough about what I’m reading. What are all of you reading during this time?
