Hi everyone! Here are 5 stories I learned about this past week that I think you’ll also really enjoy:
If one of these stories stands out, feel free to leave a comment and share your thoughts!
In yesterday’s Monday Morning Economist, I shared how I use a few economic principles to read 90 books last year.
Week 4 is complete and I’m still at 3 books for the year. One of the problems with reading multiple books at a time is that I don’t often finish a book in any given week. I’ll still get to 52 by the end of the year!
I started reading a fascinating book called Lies My Teacher Told Me. The book was originally published in 1995 and a second edition came out in the 2000s. The author looks at a variety of high school and middle school history books to see what students are being taught (or not taught!) about American history.
I had never heard about this book before I saw it at the bookstore, but I’ve been captivated by it since I started it. I requested his other book, Lies Across America, from the library and am excited to dig into that one as well.
