What I read and watched in August
It may not look that way, but I did a bunch more reading this month than last. It’s just that it was mostly research for a series of articles I wrote on health and wellness in the city. Fascinating stuff, to be sure. But it put a dent in my book reading.
Here’s what I got through this month:
Happy City by Charles Montgomery, Le roman vrai d’Alexandre by Alexandre Jardin, Reboot by Jerry Colonna (abandoned half-way), Behave by Robert M. Sapolsky (abandoned early), Becoming by Michelle Obama (ditto), A Deadly Wandering by Mark Richtell (dittoer).
Still in progress: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Nobody Wants to Read Your Sh*t by Steven Pressfield, Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel.
Here’s what I watched:
Seeking Justice, The Other Guys (boy, is this silly… but fun), Sleepless, Spotlight, Gotti, Conspiracy Theory, November Man, 2 Guns, Next, Patriots Day, Criminal, 211, The Yellow Birds, Bullet Head, Law Abiding Citizen, The Town, Deep Water Horizon, Mindhunter (Netflix series, first two episodes).
