Chaos: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties

By: Tom O'Neill

A journalist's twenty-year fascination with the Manson murders leads to "gobsmacking" (The Ringer) new revelations about the FBI's involvement in this "kaleidoscopic" (The New York Times) reassessment of an infamous case in American history.

I started this a while ago and then got distracted by another book. I've come back to it and am just beginning to dive in.

How to Be Perfect

By: Michael Schur

From the creator of The Good Place and the cocreator of Parks and Recreation, a hilarious, thought-provoking guide to living an ethical life, drawing on 2,400 years of deep thinking from around the world.

This one is my current audiobook. I had started it also a while ago and stopped thinking I wanted to delve deeper with the audiobook. But when I saw it available as a library audiobook I decided to go with it.

Braiding Sweetgrass

By: Robin Wall Kimmerer

Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, and as a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings—asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass—offer us gifts and lessons, even if we've forgotten how to hear their voices.

Another I had started as an audiobook but I didn't manage to finish it before it was returned to the library, and it hasn't been available for me when I've wanted it since then (everytime it came up I was in the middle of another book.) So, this week I picked up a physical copy from Barnes & Noble.
