What We Are Reading Today: Mindful Thoughts at Home

Author: Kate Peers

Mindful Thoughts at Home is a lovingly gathered collection of reflections appreciating the often un-noticed details of what makes a house a home.
The idea of “Mindful Thoughts” is that by commenting on various aspects of the home — noticing, appreciating, living in the moment — we will figure out what makes us happy and what doesn’t.
“Just take a look around your space now; don’t try to force any reactions, but see how you feel,” author Kate Peers says.
The book contains 25 thoughts that “let you use mindfulness to improve your living space, from decorating and cleaning to how to harness the light during the day and sleep more comfortably at night,” said a review published in goodreads.com.
“By reading this book and embracing the mindfulness within it, you will be able to create a delightful and comfortable environment that will enrich your life and soul,” said the review.
“This is a great book focusing on creating a calming and peaceful home. This book is filled with reflections, meditations, and queries for you to use in order to create a mindful home.”

What We Are Reading Today: Mediocre by Ijeoma Oluo

From the author of the New York Times bestseller So You Want to Talk About Race, a history of white male America and a scathing indictment of what it has cost us.
After the election of Donald Trump, and the escalation of white male rage and increased hostility toward immigrants that came with him, New York Times-bestselling author Ijeoma Oluo found herself in conversation with Americans around the country, pondering one central question: How did we get here?
Oluo answers that question by pinpointing white men’s deliberate efforts to subvert women, people of color, and the disenfranchised. Through research and interviews, Oluo investigates the backstory of America’s growth, from immigrant migration to our national ethos around ingenuity, from the shaping of economic policy to the protection of sociopolitical movements that fortify male power. In the end, she shows how white men have long maintained a stranglehold on leadership and sorely undermined the pursuit of happiness for all, according to a review at goodreads.com.
