Thank You for Being Late
Thank You for Being Late by Thomas L. Friedman (Other Nonfiction)
I'd like to recommend this book to anyone that holds on to the belief that climate change, global trade, and AI are not compromising their health and liberty. Friedman gives a great foundation for understanding the how the pace of life and birth patterns are impacting us now. He does have a positive view believing that this can be organized from the community level up. I wish I could retain all this knowledge to explain it to my friends. Read the Book! -- Added by 1234mom on 02/24/2017

The Easy Fake Book (Songbook)
The Easy Fake Book (Songbook) by Hal Leonard Corp. (Other Nonfiction)
This is a music book that gives the basic musical notation. I was hoping it would go a bit further than it did but it does give chords for accompanyment. The songs are all standards from ages ago. I'd recommend it if you are looking for a specific song but the genres are all over the place. -- Added by 1234mom on 02/24/2017

Fast Girl
Fast Girl by Suzy Favor Hamilton (Other Nonfiction)
This memoir was very informative in looking at bipolar illness and was a very real look at how scary and insidious its symptoms. Suzie was a three time olympian who grew up in a house with extensive mental illness, one which no family members ever discussed, "it being their secret shame", even after a brother committed suicide. She was struggling but was able to keep the symptoms in check by running. Becoming sicker once she retired, she became an escort trying to run from her pain. -- Added by coco on 02/20/2017

Talking as Fast as I Can
Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham (Other Nonfiction)
I enjoyed hearing about the Gilmore Girls behind the scenes stuff, but the book was hard for me to read. She rambles, which makes sense because that's how she tends to talk in interviews, but it was hard for me to follow. -- Added by EBurkhead on 02/20/2017
