notes to self 5

5- Read hard books. 

#notestoselffromcaryn

I’m a fiction lover at heart. But over the last few years I have challenged myself to read a lot more difficult, non-fiction books about people, history, racism, Christianity, and more. It’s been a really good push for me and I know I have grown a lot in my understanding of things and hopefully my empathy and wisdom too.

Don’t just read things that make you comfortable or fit your version of things. Read broadly. It’s such a gift to have books and literacy. Use it wisely.

Books in this stack include: Caste by Isabel Wilkerson, On Reading Well by Karen Swallow Prior, Critical Race Theory: An Introduction by Richard Delgado & Jean Stefancic, and Unsettling Truths by Mark Charles & Soong-Chan Rah
