More industry insider reading recommendations, this time from Hyland Product Management AVP Scott Craig, who says he always keeps three or four books on his Ipad for those rare moments of downtime. His quarantine reads included “The Feather Thief” by Kirk Wallace Johnson, “Half of a Yellow Sun” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and “The Curiosity Muscle” by Diana Kander and Andy Fromm. I’m most interested in The Feather Thief, which Craig describes as a book that covers “the amazing, weird history of tying flies using feathers from exotic birds. Natural history and true crime intersect in a very entertaining way. Spoiler alert: The book is about someone who steals rare and sometimes extinct birds from a museum for fly tying.”

Thanks to Anita, who wrote in to recommend I check out BookBub: “You sign up (free) and tell them your likes, and every day you get an email with books that fit your profile. Some are Amazon deals, some are free. Good if you chew through mysteries like I do!” I’ve already signed up and am eager to discover new authors.
