7. Beginners Luck: Dispatches from the Klamath Mountains

By Malcolm Terence (236 pp)

This is a terrific memoir about life up the Salmon River in NW California. There's a little bit of everything: hippies, commune living, logging, mining, fire fighting, and Karuks. Malcolm has a great story starting in the Bay Area and ending up at Black Bear commune and eventually settling in the area. Also a good history for how tribes/rural areas dealt with government agencies several decades ago.

6. Shrill

By Lindy West (260 pp ebook)

I was a Lindy fan when she wrote for the Stranger and when she wrote for Jezebel. Bob and I love the TV series. I grabbed the book when it was on a discount promotion (this ebook discounts are killing me. I buy SO MANY BOOKS) and I zoomed through it on the bus last week. Love Lindy's voice.
