Guess what, Electric Book Machine fans? We’ve chosen our next hate-read and the winner is Phil Jackson’s Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons of a Hardwood Warrior. We plan to be inspired by sports and meditation and… sports? We expect Michael Jordan anecdotes, borderline(?) racist insights, hardcore cultural appropriation, and a new way of looking at basketball or whatever. Is this a man’s Eat, Pray, Love? If we’re lucky! Stay tuned.
ICYMI, the next book we’re tackling is Jonathan W. White’s Midnight in America: Darkness, Sleep, and Dreams during the Civil War. It’s gonna be historical and dream interpretation-y and intriguing as all get-out. Join us and read along!
Ever wonder why women are so afraid of independence? (LOL, women) Have you ever wondered what somebody writing in the early Reagan era would have to say about it? Well, you’re in luck! Next up we’ll be reading Colette Dowling’s 1981 best seller (apparently) The Cinderella Complex: Women’s Hidden Fear of Independence. Has Isaac already finished it? Maybe. Does Lauren refuse to talk about it if it doesn’t somehow involve Gus Gus? Also maybe. Hit up your local pile of trash books from the ’80s and read along and find out in our next episode!
You may be asking, What the H are we reading next? More murder? Yes, but also no. Why, we’ve decided on some dark juvenile fiction, Dan Wells’ I Am Not a Serial Killer. We watched the movie a while back and it was really good and surprising and definitely our cup of psychopath-flavored tea. Join us on our last read of 2019, it should be a pretty breezy one!
Guuuyyyyys, what are we reading next? Another dating/relationship book! So pleased we will be taking a look at mustachioed TV guy Steve Harvey’s masterpiece, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. It’s going to be full of gendered stereotypes, lady-blaming, and maybe one or two pieces of okay advice wrapped in garbage. We’ll also have some special guests helping to break it all down on our next episode. Look forward to it!
