Ekho Bluetooth Speaker ($99) I love taking music everywhere I go, which is why I’m excited about this wireless, portable Bluetooth speaker.

Included inside the kit is the rectangular-shaped, black-colored, wireless speaker with a charging cable.
This speaker features an 800mAh built-in battery. It’s small enough to carry with me anytime, but the sound is loud enough to enjoy quality music on the go!
The back of the speaker features a variety of inputs including AUX cable, TF card, charging, and USB slot. It’s a superb compact speaker that has a total range of over 10 meters.
There There by Tommy Orange ($12.23)
Tommy Orange’s “groundbreaking, extraordinary” (The New York Times) There There is the “brilliant, propulsive” (People Magazine) story of twelve unforgettable characters, Urban Indians living in Oakland, California, who converge and collide on one fateful day. It’s “the year’s most galvanizing debut novel” (Entertainment Weekly).
As we learn the reasons that each person is attending the Big Oakland Powwow—some generous, some fearful, some joyful, some violent—momentum builds toward a shocking yet inevitable conclusion that changes everything. Jacquie Red Feather is newly sober and trying to make it back to the family she left behind in shame. Dene Oxendene is pulling his life back together after his uncle’s death and has come to work at the powwow to honor his uncle’s memory. Opal Viola Victoria Bear Shield has come to watch her nephew Orvil, who has taught himself traditional Indian dance through YouTube videos and will to perform in public for the very first time. There will be glorious communion, and a spectacle of sacred tradition and pageantry. And there will be sacrifice, and heroism, and loss.
There There is a wondrous and shattering portrait of an America few of us have ever seen. It’s “masterful . . . white-hot . . . devastating” (The Washington Post) at the same time as it is fierce, funny, suspenseful, thoroughly modern, and impossible to put down. Here is a voice we have never heard—a voice full of poetry and rage, exploding onto the page with urgency and force. Tommy Orange has written a stunning novel that grapples with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and profound spirituality, and with a plague of addiction, abuse, and suicide. This is the book that everyone is talking about right now, and it’s destined to be a classic.
It’s Tommy Orange’s first novel, and he did quite an excellent job with it. There are 12 characters introduced to us in the book, and each of them tells us a story about being a Native American in an urban setting.
Having all 12 characters could be quite overwhelming, but overall it’s still a great read for anyone looking for a deep or gripping read.
It was heartfelt and lyrically written, plus the pacing is just right. No wonder this is such an award-winning book.
I’ve never read anything quite like this before, so it kept me on my toes throughout. My wife is begging me to finish, because she wants to read it too. This subscription is one of the best book subscriptions we’ve found!
As usual, this month’s Culture Carton is a well thought out curation. They send items for self-improvement, as well as other useful lifestyle items for men. My favorite item this month is the novel. It was the most interesting book I’ve encountered in a while. The other inclusions are amazing as well, like the no-show socks and cooling towel which are both perfect for summer. I also like the sophisticated wireless Bluetooth speaker, it can make drives and trips more fun. I’m looking forward to more great reads from this subscription, as well as top quality items that I can use every day!
