January’s Book: Heart of Darkness

King Leopold II.Within only 20 pages, you’ll be changed.Last month, we reread a Christmas classic and for January, we’re also going to be catching up on the deeds of a man with a big, bushy white beard---King Leopold II of Belgium.

A December Book Club Repeat

Papa Noel.Santa had a bad run-in with the Austin Police Department.This month we decided to go back to a classic for our December PD Book Club pick.

November’s Book: How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life

The Wealth of Nations.You might also know Russ Roberts from the Keynes vs. Hayek rap battle on Youtube. Figuring this month would be a hard one given the results guaranteed of a race between Tyranny and Tyranny are slated to be revealed part way through, our staff found selecting our November PD Book Club Pick to be rather hard--- just like last month when we decided to go with, The Big Short.

October’s Book: The Big Short

We might not have gone with the sieg heil bit.The Big Short. As it was for past Octobers, our staff wanted to have a horrifying tale for the PD Book Club Pick, but unfortunately, with the daily news being scary enough it was rather difficult to pick a title that would stand out.

September’s Book: 13 Hours

Sad to say...The 3 A.M. call that went unanswered.Our PD staff would be remiss if we didn’t select 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi by Mitchell Zuckoff for our September book club pick.

August’s Book: Never Broken

Spirit.From being raised in Alaska and Hawaii to being homeless in San Diego to moving to Texas, Jewel has many a story to tell. In the past, PD hasn’t been the best at recommending beach reads. Yes, yes---we’ll never live down recommending Ray Kurzweil’s The Singularity Is Near, but this month we stand by our pick.

Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story by Jewel Kilcher is part memoir, part travel guide, part action drama, part philosophy, part instruction manual, part comedy, part self-help, part sci-fi, part Economics 101, part art appreciation and a 100% embracement of freedom.
