I’m not quite finished reading these, but I’ll finish this weekend. I highly recommend both:
Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor by Layla F. Saad.
White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo.
I also highly recommend Library Extension, which shows you whether your library has books you search for on Goodreads or Amazon, and, if your library owns the books, how many copies in which formats and whether they’re checked out or not.

The Confident Creative: Drawing to Free the Hand and Mind by Cat Bennett. Ok look at using drawing as a sort of mindfulness meditation. Definitely a book and reader mismatch on this one – I read the whole thing, but I was annoyed at it/about it most of the time. YMMV.
Black Mould (The Rivers of London Graphic Novel #3) by Ben Aaronovitch. Very good continuation of the series in which Peter and Sahra are on the trail of some particularly lively black mould… According to the timeline in the back, this takes place after The Hanging Tree and before The Furthest Station.
Sidney Crosby: One of the NHL’s Top Scorers by Jeanne Nagle. Maybe I can’t rate this fairly, being pretty far out of the target audience (grades 5-8). It seemed kind of disjointed to me. But I did learn some bits of Sidney Crosby trivia I hadn’t known before, which was cool.
The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill. Excellent young adult fantasy novel about (wait for it) a girl who drank the moon. 😀 Recommended. (And from a Minnesota author!) I’m already on the list at the library for more of her books.

Doodle Art and Lettering with Joanne Sharpe: Inspiration and Techniques for Personal Expression by Joanne Sharpe. What it says in the title. 🙂 I really like Joanne Sharpe’s art journaling style and enjoyed her tips, tricks, and suggestions.
