I have had a hard time reading this month. I have mostly been listening to audiobooks, while doing other things. I did enjoy The Ghost Map about the cholera outbreak in London back in the 1800s. I do feel like we continue to not learn from history, and I wonder how the author feels about the current pandemic. I gave another attempt at reading Marie Kondo, but this one did not hit the mark for me. Yes, I admit that I would be more productive and happy at work if I didn’t have 500 emails a day or multiple meetings. However, this book makes it sound like I can just change how the company I am employed for works. Also, there are plenty of days I am not happy with my job, but I am not in a position to just change careers if I am not happy. In fact, these days I count my blessings that I have a job. I will also say that books don’t have a time stamp, and I am surprised that this is the message she is sticking with even after all the avid readers disagreed with her on this. Marie Kondo definitely creates an inner struggle in me, because I appreciate her unique method, but I guess I just need to ignore her descriptions and interpret her method my own way.
*My full review of Ghosts of Harvard will be posted soon.*
