UNP Staff members are always reading books, both within our list and outside of what we publish. Here are some of the titles where our noses have been buried.
January Staff Reading List
“I finished All You Can Ever Know, by Nicole Chung, a memoir about transracial adoption. Really excellent. Next up is Lydia Millet’s novel A Children’s Bible about climate denialism.” –Tish Fobben
“I’m finally starting on one of ours’, Treacherous Passage by Bill Mills. This pandemic has me reading our books.” –Roger Buchholz
“The first book I finished in 2021 was book two of the Tripods series, entitled The City of Gold and Lead by John Christopher. This is a young adult, dystopian, sci-fi series that is very easy and enjoyable to read. I’m well into the 3rd book in the series now, and looking forward to reading the prequel after that.” –Lacey Losh
War and Peace by Tolstoy. –Ann Baker
Five Total Strangers by Natalie D. Richards. “When Mira’s quick layover turns into an all-night stay on Christmas Eve, she accepts an offer from her seatmate to share a car and drive the final leg. Three other stranded passengers join what should be a six-hour trip, and they begin a drive where nothing is simple, and no one is honest. This quick thriller is good for a snow day at home.” – Heather Stauffer
“I’m still reading the last book I started in 2020: A Promised Land by Barack Obama. I’m not really in a hurry to finish it.” –Erica Corwin
