Reading Log: How to be a Boy (collection of short stories)

At the end of last term, I decided to set myself the goal of reading more.  I used to be an avid reader, but as life went on, became "Too busy to read anymore."  I did however, have plenty of time to check facebook and instagram hourly.  So these holidays, I gave myself the goal of reducing time spent on my phone, and increasing time spent reading.  Between mothering and catching up with friends and family, I managed to make a start on my goal.  Here is the first book I read:


I chose this book, because I am a new mother of a baby boy.  It is a collection of short stories, all written to highlight how challenging it is to grow up as a boy.  The stories both engaged me and horrified me and I turned to my partner stating that our son would be home schooled.  It would be a great book for young men aged 12+, especially those exploring what it means to be a boy/man.
