    Educated, a memoir by Tara Westover.

    She was born into a rural Idaho Mormon family with survivalist/prepper parents and home-schooled (non-schooled being a more accurate term) and still managed through self-study to get admitted to BYU after getting a 28 score on the ACT. But her lack of knowledge was made abundantly clear the first day of class when she raised her hand and asked about a word in the textbook that she didn't know. The word was holocaust...

    Just finished Tana French's new book, "The Witch Elm." It may be her best book yet.

    Also read "The Serpent King", a very popular YA book. It felt contrived to me. Would not recommend.

    21 Lessons for the 21st Century and
    The War on Normal People
    Both give a solemn view of the future and how we are very unprepared to deal with the many changes brought on by AI, automation, etc.

    Darkly Dreaming Dexter, by Jeff Lindsay--I think a TV series was based on it.

    I am reading Saved by Ben Hewitt. So far it is pretty good and a deep examination of what money and wealth really are.
    I picked up this book at the library, after seeing UL mention this. I found myself rather disappointed, I was wanting to hear more directly from "Eric", the person who lives on 10K a year, and much less about the author's life. The conversations around Eric were rarely direct quotes, and usually the author's summation. The overall concept was still good, I was just hoping to hear more particulars about Eric's thinking/decision making.

    How do you like it Jane? I've never seen the show, but I think my sister likes it. I might like to try the book version.
