I just loved Just My Type, a thoroughly enjoyable romp through fonts and typefaces.
I also liked two family stories:
- The Boy in the Moon, the true and heartbreaking story of a severely handicapped boy and his dad’s quest to take care of him.
- We The Animals, a tight, harsh novel about three boys growing up with flawed parents, but parents who love them very much
and finally I recommend Poor Economics, a clinical look at how poor people behave with their finances — just like not-so-poor people, it turns out, minus the cushion of cash in the bank, which means any mistake can be fatal.
