Moms - Yeong-shin Ma

A graphic novel about Korean moms who are mostly divorced and dating. Pretty funny, and fun to read, even if it was a little dark. I learned about "colatecs," alcohol-free dance clubs for the elderly.

Agency (The Jackpot Trilogy) - William Gibson

William Gibson has a way of describing things where you have no idea what is going on, but you still know that it's pretty cool. This book was great at first, though it did drag on a bit. The main characters kind of always had the right answer to every single problem. Still glad I read it.

How Google Works - Eric Schmidt & Jonathan Rosenberg

My second in the "books I read on my phone" series. This one was kind of sad, talking about so many parts of Google that seem to have disappeared. Am I a Smart Creative?

Pride & Prejudice - Jane Austen

You know the one! I had a free copy on my phone, thanks to Google Books. This is the first in a new series, books I read entirely on my phone, which is something I am doing lately in order to avoid browsing Twitter too much (after Wordle, and Korean vocabulary of course). This book is pretty good, as you already know. I've seen multiple movies/TV series about it, so I also had a pretty good understanding of what was going to happen.
