*Forward: A Memoir by Abby Wombach; I read this for Read Harder and it was pretty neat to read about some games I’ve watched Abby and the USWNT team. However, this was a much more personal story than I was expecting. It was a pretty quick read and I’m glad I got to know one of the ‘Greatest of All Time’s better. Trigger warning for substance and alcohol abuse.
Bessie Stringfield: A Tales of the Talented Tenth Vol. 2 by Joel Christian Gill; This was displayed at the American Motorcycle Museum and after reading Miranda Mercury, I had to pick it up. It was a beautifully illustrated comic and I got to learn about the adventures of brave, independent Bessie during the Jim Crow era.
Hemingway Didn’t Say That: The Truth Behind Familiar Quotations by Garson O’Toole; This was a free Kindle first book and it was such a blast to read! O’Toole explores common quotes and dives into the history of that quote – and even provides clues as to how each quote was misattributed. It was a fascinating read and if you like quotes (erhm, Pinterest), it’s worth checking out!
