OK, this is a bit of an odd request. But here it is. I need something to read, and since my alertness level is a little on the weak side these days, I need something easy on the brain cells. The ideal choice would be, say, a 10-part fiction series that’s basically beach reading. In other words, something that’s pretty light but will last me a long time. It doesn’t have to be quite Harry Potter level, but that’s the sort of thing to be thinking of.

Nonfiction that’s not too dense is fine as well. Any suggestions?

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
