Attempted Relaxation

Here is a picture of the stack of books that I hope to read during my convalescence.  They are as follows:
  • Lee Mcintyre, Post-Truth
  • Colson Whitehead, The Underground Railroad
  • Ron Stallworth, Black Klansman
  • François Cusset, How the World Swung to the Right
  • Mitch Prinstein, Popular: Finding Happiness and Success in a World That Cares Too Much about the Wrong Kinds of Relationships
  • [the last ninety pages of] Hannah Arendt’s The Origins of Totalitarianism
a stack of six paperback books on a wooden stool

I might define the term relaxation differently than most.
