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

Thank You for Being Late
Thank You for Being Late by Thomas L. Friedman (Other Nonfiction)
The title serves as a reminder that we should pause to appreciate (and attempt to understand) the world we live in amid the accelerations that are causing tremendous stress. Friedman posits that all of us have a responsibility to work together to fix problems and seek solutions that work for everyone. A remark from physicist and environmentalist Amory Lovins struck a chord when he described himself, not as a pessimist or an optimist, both of which rely on fate and absolve us of personal responsibility for what happens. He believes, instead, in "applied hope" in order to create the future we want. -- Added by Noni on 02/16/2017

Man's Search for Meaning
Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Emil Frankl (Other Nonfiction)
The first portion of the book recounts the author's concentration camp experience during WW2. Very heavy and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone prone to depression or anxiety. The second portion is overall, quite uplifting, although Frankl reaches back to tragic observations while interred. -- Added by NanM on 02/16/2017

The Afterlife of Billy Fingers
The Afterlife of Billy Fingers by Kagan, Annie (Other Nonfiction)
It claims to be a true story, it kind of falls apart at the end, when the title person says he has cast off all memory to become one with the universe, but still remembers to visit earth to chat with his sister. Either one or the other, please. But it is a fun read, even though it was not as therapeutic as the friend who gave it to me hoped. -- Added by Konsulentin on 02/14/2017
