Books July and August 2021

Got through a lot of content in the last two months. Reading while holding a sleeping newborn for most of July helped encourage the reading, and then I just kept at it through August. I’ve also included podcasts here for the first time as well. Hopefully you find a few here that you want to add to your list.

For original writing formed and shaped by books and podcasts like these, visit:

Or you can find my writings in my previous Instagram posts.

There’s always a lot of discussion happening via my texts, DMs, phone calls, and FaceTimes regarding all these topics and more. Don’t hesitate to (thoughtfully) reach out if anything is of interest to you. Always up for a good convo and/or a good book/podcast recommendation.
