Bookshelf: What We’re Reading

With quiet time away from computers this week, we are curling up with some inspiring reads like Grandmother Power: A Global Phenomenon, telling the story of grandmother activists around the globe. We are also¬†perusing others’ passion for books in My Ideal Bookshelf, with lovely illustrations by Jane Mount. And we are taking a deeper look at our great city and its enduring institutions (like the NYPL, above) from a design perspective, with Designers & Books’ great list of 20 Books About New York.
