Pass, Fail, Promise: World Politics Edition

Pass: In Order to Live by Yeonmi Park and Maryanne Vollers This is the first book in a while to send me into book coma. I finished listening to it, and then had to sit for a couple of hours, processing it. I went into it knowing nothing about Korea ouside of what I've gleaned… Continue reading Pass, Fail, Promise: World Politics Edition

Pass, Fail, Promise: Books

I ticked volumes nine and ten off of my "Books to Read in 2014" list (yes, I have a list. Yes, I'm following it for the most part. No, I don't expect that to be the case come December).
