We’ve got some great finds this week!
Ellie at Musings of a Bookshop Girl has a super review of The Shallows: How the Internet is Changing the Way We Think, Read and Remember by Nicholas Carr. Although all of us out there love the internet and the convenience of having the entire world at our disposal with a single mouse click, Carr argues that there are negative neurological consequences from the internet. It sounds fascinating!
Paula at the Phantom Paragrapher reviewed a really cool memoir called Your Voice in My Head by Emma Forrest. During a tough time in her life, Forrest is fortunate to find a psychiatrist who can help save her from herself. When the psychiatrist dies unexpectedly, and a love relationship falls apart, Forrest turns to writing to figure things out. This book will be released on May 3, 2011!
Shellyrae at Bookd Out reviewed a super-cool sounding book, Lessons in Letting Go: Confessions of a Hoarder by Corrine Grant. Corrine Grant is a comedienne who decides one day to clean house. While she’s not at the scary level of the folks on shows like Animal Hoarders, she candidly discusses what motivates people to cling to things and the difficulties she has parting with her stuff.
If you’ve seen good nonfiction reviews out there on the interweb, or have one of your own, please pass it along!
