Book of the Month – June

Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race by Reni Eddo-Lodge.

I admit that I was one of those people that would ask black people what we can do about racism. What an idiot. Might as well ask someone that’s just been robbed if I can borrow 50 bucks. This book exposed my shortcomings and made me want to do something about it.

Book of the month – April

A Gentleman in Moscow

The ideal read in a time of isolation. In 1922, the Bolshevik tribunal sentenced Count Alexander Rostov to house arrest at the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Brimming with humour, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, we follow the count as he comes to terms with his reduced circumstances.
