The Boyfriend’s Book List


A while ago I gave my boyfriend a list of books that I wanted him to read! I even fixed him up a little to-read shelf above my massive one! I figured I’d share his to-read list here, in case you ever were at a loss to suggest books to a significant other! 

How I Killed Pluto: He loves, loves, LOVES science and astronomy so I had to pick up this little nugget when I saw it at a local store. I’ve never read it myself, but I thought the title was funny, and it seemed rather informative!
The Joy of X: He bought this book for himself and I know nothing about it, except it’s full of math, math drawings, math formulas, and things I know next to nothing about! Cool! (I think)

Thunderstruck: I love Erik Larson and I told my boyfriend as much. I would have put Devil in the White City on his list, but I thought Thunderstruck was more up his alley, as it deals with the creation of wireless communication and the big fight over who created it and who would get the rights to it, as well as how it was created! There is also a smidge of murder in it, near the end!  
 Blink: The first of Gladwell’s books that I’ve read. He has interesting stuff about psychology and the workings of people’s mind. He also talks a lot about successful people and how they do it. I found Blink to be one of my favorites, so I thought, since he’s going into teaching, maybe a little bit about psychology could do some good!
Everything But the Coffee: This is about Starbucks and how the company works…well in all ways but the coffee. Aka. the setup of the stores, the music, and stuff like that. It’s actually really interesting!! Since both of us were/are baristas, and that’s how we met, I thought it would be a funny read to stick on his self! (Plus he seems to like serious reads)
House of Leaves: Because House of Leaves. (Seriously, I can’t talk enough about this book)
Headhunters: I love Nesbo, but I can’t throw my boyfriend into the Harry Hole series and this is the only standalone I currently have in my possession. Since I love murder mystery, I want to have him read one that I really liked, just to see what he thinks of it! (Plus it’s pretty short)
Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore: This beautiful piece of fiction weaves the old and new together, and talks a lot about google! I feel like he doesn’t get enough chances to read fiction, and this book would be a great break from the serious reads he has on his list! (Both for fun list, and school reading list!)
