Educated by Tara Westover
This book is simply about the importance of education, which is something many people choose to take for granted. The author wasn't homeschooled. She wasn't schooled at all. It's a fascinating story about overcoming one of the largest barriers in the world -- being uneducated. But the author isn't from a developing nation, she's from Idaho. These are barriers that still exist here, and now.
This book has been sitting on my dresser for a while now, waiting to be read. I've always been a fan of memoirs, and it came highly recommended by my mother. Plus, my office book club read it a few months back, and everyone seemed to love it. I couldn't make the zoom call that day but ordered the book anyway as I knew it would be up my alley. I plan on finally starting it this weekend, and I can't wait!
