Here is what I read this week. Some of the articles/posts may require a subscription to read them. I also share my recommended reads on Pocket for anyone who wants to follow along there.
- Twentieth Century Journey, Vol 1: The Start: 1904-1930 by William L. Shirer. As I mentioned last week, I am always fascinated with the writer’s behind great works (like The Rise of Fall of the Third Reich). So far, Shirer’s memoir is fascinating, both from the perspective of a journalist in Europe and for all of the people he meets along the way.
