My friends need to stop writing so many books

I get sent a good number of books, which I love, but no matter how good they look, most of the time I don’t get around to reading them for a while. You can only imagine how guilty I feel when my friends send me books…

Wanted to call out these five books in my ever-growing To Read pile because they’d all make good gift books, they’re all by friends of mine who are super-smart visual thinkers, and they’re all either about — and/or excellent examples of — turning ideas into stories, pictures, or explanations that connect with an audience.
