The Case Against Reality: Why Evolution Hid the Truth from Our Eyes

by Donald Hoffman

Our senses have developed to give us a functional picture of reality, not an "accurate" mirroring of the world. Hoffman makes the case that evolutionary adaptation has made us perceive reality through heavily filtered lenses. Fun and easy to read.  — Maria




American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America

Most of us have some sort of a grasp on the excitement and horrific history of the early Americas during the European Conquest. Woodward looks at these events from the past and shows why areas in the Americas have specific attitudes and outlooks that carry over into modern times.  — Josef

How to Be a Woman

by Caitlin Moran

In this memoir Caitlin Moran wonders why so many of today’s modern young women don’t think of themselves as feminists, and, in fact, disassociate themselves from that word and concept. This memoir is meant to be an argument against that attitude, one with wit and humor.  — Susan

This novel of suburban love both marital and extramarital is tender, funny, and irresistible. — Michaela




Long Bright River: A Novel

by Liz Moore

For a nearly 500-page novel Long Bright River is extremely fast-paced, with a gritty, uneasy narrative and characters so visceral that I constantly felt breathless, as if a great weight pressed on my lungs. Nothing about this book is easy, and in no way is this a straightforward crime novel. It's a gut-wrenching, powerful story about addiction and the bond of sisters. — Susannah
