The Happy Quitter! read Trevor Noah’s book Born a Crime and loved it. Here’s the review…


“I visited Africa numerous times; I love the continent, the people, the colors and the beauty, but no matter how hard I tried, I could never really understand Apartheid. Born a Crime is one of the best biographies I have read. This book surprised me–and that’s not so easily done. It’s about South Africa, about apartheid, poverty, domestic abuse and so much more. The writing is brilliant, there were moments when I had to stop reading because I needed to digest what I had just learned, and there were moments when I smiled or laughed out loud…” ~ The Happy Quitter

Be aware, be fair. Read books!

  1. Trevor Noah was interviewed on the CBC about his book. Quite an interesting man.

  2. good to know–bought that book a few months ago and it’s on my read list (which if I go chronological means it’s gonna take years before I actually do–but I can skip a few ahead!)

    1. Speed-reading? But if you’re like me, you want to savor a good book. 🙂

      1. nah, more like I have a list (mostly chronological by publication year and LOC #) that I’ve been trying to get through, so things published the past couple of years are gonna be a while. I made a spreadsheet with every 5th space blank for that “impulse read” that has to be out of order.

      2. Very organized. Loves to read. Refers to Library of Congress numbers… Are you a librarian? If so, what kind of setting?

      3. Maybe in another life I was. I ended up with over 1,000 books and needed a way to put them all in some kind of order (and I had a summer without a job, a ride, and anything else to do–so I bought library labels to put on the spines). I got used to LOC #s thanks to college, and it made sense instead of guesstimating the best place to put a certain book.
