Here's what the chickens are reading. Julie, Jarad, and Morty have all run across some items that made them think, or laugh, or cry and they'd like to share them with you so that your brain can have all the same sort of exercise.
This week, Jarad's picks illustrate people who are trying hard to tell their stories to the world, to push against the boundaries of their reality where they can.
Julie and Morty's choices can be read as cautionary tales. Be careful what kind of stories you tell yourself. You can end up places you never wanted to go.
