a pile of open books in the grass

When was the last time you sat down to a good book? This month on Longview at Georgetown Blog, we’re sharing some recently published books that caught our eye so that members of our Georgetown, MA apartment community can enjoy a good read. Try reading one of the following this month: 

The Nickel Boys: A Novel by Colson Whitehead

“Based on the history of a real reform school in Florida that operated for one hundred and eleven years and warped and destroyed the lives of thousands of children, The Nickel Boys is a devastating, driven narrative by a great American novelist whose work is essential to understanding the current reality of the United States.”

They Called Us Enemy by George Takei

“A stunning graphic memoir recounting actor/author/activist George Takei's childhood imprisoned within American concentration camps during World War II. Experience the forces that shaped an American icon -- and America itself -- in this gripping tale of courage, country, loyalty, and love.”

The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

“When she stumbles across the ad, she’s looking for something else completely. But it seems like too good an opportunity to miss—a live-in nannying post, with a staggeringly generous salary. And when Rowan Caine arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is smitten—by the luxurious “smart” home fitted out with all modern conveniences, by the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and by this picture-perfect family.

What she doesn’t know is that she’s stepping into a nightmare—one that will end with a child dead and herself in prison awaiting trial for murder.”

Ultralearning by Scott H. Young

“Learn a new talent, stay relevant, reinvent yourself, and adapt to whatever the workplace throws your way. Ultralearning offers nine principles to master hard skills quickly. This is the essential guide to future-proof your career and maximize your competitive advantage through self-education.”

Thanks for reading our post today. Now, find a comfy space — perhaps outside of your apartment — and read one of these brand new books!
