Welcome to my page of book reviews! In this page, I will be sharing my thoughts on various books that I have read.

My reading habits are quite varied, ranging from fiction to nonfiction. However, one genre that particularly interests me is books that delve into social justice issues. I believe it is important to educate ourselves on the inequalities that exist in our society and work towards creating a more just and equitable world.

I enjoy reading books that challenge and broaden my understanding of the human experience. I believe that reading books from different perspectives helps me to be more empathetic and understanding towards others.

The Intersection of Technology and Social Justice

An Analysis of “Race After Technology”, “Design Justice”, and “Automating Inequality”

These three books explore the intersection of technology and social justice. “Race After Technology” examines the ways in which technology perpetuates racial inequality.

“Design Justice” proposes a framework for centering marginalized voices in the design process. “Automating Inequality” discusses how technology is used to automate and perpetuate systems of inequality.

Together, they provide practical tools and frameworks for challenging these systems and advocating for a more just and equitable future. These books offer a critical analysis of the ways in which technology perpetuates inequality and provide a roadmap for creating a more equitable future.

The War on Drugs

Why I read more than one book at a time

I have always been an avid reader, but my reading pace changes depending on the book and its content. Some books may take me years to read (Reason & Persons), and once a week, I only manage to read a few pages. Other books, on the other hand, I manage to finish in just a few days.

For this reason, I have found that reading more than one book at a time is the most efficient way for me to keep up with my reading goals. By reading multiple books simultaneously, I can switch between them based on my mood and interest.

Additionally, reading more than one book at a time allows me to learn more about different topics simultaneously. I can read a novel, a biography, and a self-help book all at once. This way, I can broaden my knowledge and keep my mind engaged in various subjects.

The widget below shows the books I am currently reading (or having a break from) and hope to post a future book overview.
