    Women’s History Month: Books That I Am Reading In March 2021

    “More than ever, I am aware of the need to support and celebrate each other. I like to believe I am part of a global support group network of 3.4 billion. Imagine: if you can fall back on the 3.5 billion sisters, and the many good men who are with us, what could we possibly not achieve?” – Nicole Kidman Women’s History Month is here and I can’t keep calm!

I have learned so much from the life lessons of real and fictional…

    Reading Is My Superpower: Book List 2021

    My usual favorite reading spot in the Bay Area has been the main branch of the local San Francisco Public Library which has a six storied beautiful building filled with books and resources. I love sitting by the window overlooking the spectacular views of the Civic Center and City Hall.

Or in the several gorgeous Indie bookstores that the Bay Area is home to. Or the sandy beaches filled with sunlight. Even the amazing parks and hiking trails around the Golden Gate have some cool reading spots…

    The New Normal: Fall Reading 2020

    2020 has been a roller coaster for everyone including me. Going through unexpected life changes and the lack of socializing took a toll on all our lives. When the pandemic hit, I was quarantined at home immediately starting in March to date. So needless to say, I am trying to figure out how to survive best in the new normal (as I am sure you are too). Reading Slump I went through several phases of reading in the last six months or so. First I started reading voraciously trying to utilize all the free time during my new quarantine experience. It was time for social and digital detox. Soon after…

    “Outside has everything. Whenever I think of a thing now like skis or fireworks or islands or elevators or yo-yos, I have to remember they’re real, they’re actually happening in Outside all together. It makes my head tired.

    Book Review: Out For Some Bad Blood

    Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup In 2015, Vice President Joe Biden visited the Newark, California, laboratory of a hot new start-up making medical devices: Theranos. Biden saw rows of impressive-looking equipment — the company’s supposedly game-changing device for testing blood — and offered glowing praise for “the laboratory of the future.” The lab was a fake. The devices Biden saw weren’t close to being workable; they had been staged for the visit. Biden was not the only one conned. This is the story the prizewinning Wall Street Journal reporter John Carreyrou tells virtually to perfection in “Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup”. He…
