It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

This weekend I went up to my beloved Wisconsin for the Green Bay Packers game against Chicago. I got to visit with family and spend time with my darling nephew, too! For reading, I am happy to continue on with Non-Fiction November:

I was disappointed with the mid-term election last Tuesday, to put it politely. I was weirdly shocked and not shocked at all by the results, but not wholly disheartened, as many progressive policies were passed by voters. I’m sure you guys know all about it and I don’t want to get into a heated debate here, these are just my personal feelings and I don’t expect to change anyone’s minds. So, when deciding on the next non-fiction book to read I thought what would be better and more timely than The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America by George Packer?

American democracy is beset by a sense of crisis. Seismic shifts during a single generation have created a country of winners and losers, allowing unprecedented freedom while rending the social contract, driving the political system to the verge of breakdown, and setting citizens adrift to find new paths forward.
