Ash, Stephanie Wilbur The Annie Year Fiction Suggested By: Other.
BooksAndBars for December 2017. Finalist for the Minnesota Book Award. This was probably the funniest book I've read in a long time. I heard a review of it on MPR thought it'd just be a fluffy account of a small town girl living in a lonely world, but it was so much more. The author perfectly describes the complex relationships between the main character and the townspeople she has known her whole life. The situational humor and wit that the characters display had me laughing out loud. It reminded me a lot of the movie 'Grumpy Old Men' in that way because of the "well here we are staring at each other again" situations that you end up in while trying to deal with difficult people in a small town.

Baker, Nicholson Substitute: Going to School with a Thousand Kids Memoir Suggested By: BookBub.com.
In 2014, after a brief orientation course and a few fingerprinting sessions, Nicholson Baker became an on-call substitute teacher in a Maine public school district. He awoke to the dispatcher's five-forty a.m. phone call and headed to one of several nearby schools; when he got there, he did his best to follow lesson plans and help his students get something done. What emerges from Baker's experience is a complex, often touching deconstruction of public schooling in America: children swamped with overdue assignments, over­whelmed by the marvels and distractions of social media and educational technology, and staff who weary themselves trying to teach in step with an often outmoded or overly ambitious standard curriculum.
Balcombe, Jonathan Pleasurable Kingdom: Animals and the Nature of Feeling Good Non-fiction Unfortunately, some bad stylistic and logical choices lessen the book's impact. Balcombe lists far too many anecdotes and adds too little analysis. He also makes presumptuous leaps: the fact that birds have brilliant plumage, and eyes to see other birds; feathers, does not mean they possess an aesthetic sense. One story of a chimp supposedly watching an African sunset is turned into an epiphany in which the ape is "contented with life." Such unprovable assertions detract from an otherwise well-argued thesis.
