Best Book Lists: Oct. 9-15, 2020

The problem with one-size-fits-all 😷

Hi Reader,

If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, here’s an opportunity for you. It appears that one-size-fits-all facemask sizing most makers use only works if your head’s smaller than a jack-o’-lantern. And my husband and I have learned that we do not have heads smaller than large pumpkins. So we have a growing number of facemasks we can’t use because our noggins are too big.

You can’t try on a facemask before buying it. And we’ve learned that facemasks described as being for “most heads” can’t accommodate our skulls’ vast expanses.

What we big-headed people need is a better way to size facemasks. It’s a problem ripe for an entrepreneur’s solution. You may not make Jeff Bezos-level money, but you could go down in history as developing universal facemask sizing. What an achievement that would be!

Books are another area where a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t fly, which is why I compile this group of booklists each week. You can use these lists to find a book that fits your tastes.

And when you’re not reading, you can come up with a way to size facemasks. We pumpkin heads need you.

Be wise, stay safe, and thanks for reading,

Studies show that 10 out of 10 people with large heads love Bidwell Hollow. Send Bidwell Hollow to a big-headed person you know.
