Stay-at-home shelfie #55

It's an Unnecessary Dramatic Angle (UDA) for the second Mostly Sociology shelf. Some of these might be better fits over on the nonfiction/history bookshelf (shelfies #29 through #36), but that's the fun of Perpetual Shelf Sorting (PSS). One is never finished sorting.

Essayist Rebecca Solnit is the clear winner for most books on this shelf. I'll just list out the other authors present: Jia Tolentino, Kameron Hurley, Sharmila Sen, bell hooks, Suki Kim, Matt Haig, John B. Judis, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, John Crowley, Alvin Toffler and James Herriot.

And if that's not the first time that Alvin Toffler has been mentioned in the same sentence with all those others, I'll eat my hat.

I could have linked out to everyone named above, but if you are interested in learning more about any of these folks, you can certainly do the Googling and surfing yourself, right? That's the fun of it ⁠— letting the links lead you on a journey to discover new authors, ideas, books....

If you've been reading along with these shelfies and haven't yet added any "new to you" books or authors to your to-read lists, then one of us is doing it wrong.
