One of my "intentions" last year was to read more. Unfortunately, I didn't read nearly as much as I wanted to. Technically I didn't read much at all, I listened. Regardless, I am pretty happy that I set up the behavior to enjoy books this last year.
I used to read a lot more as a kid. These days, I don't have the time or don't want to sit idly for so long. I want to change that. Again, for now, I'm just happy that I'm giving my brain some different kind of creative food.
- The Power of Habit
- The Handmaid's Tale
- Kitchen Confidential (RIP Tony)
- Ready Player One (again)
- Outside the Wire
- Howl's Moving Castle
- Children of the Mind
- Hyperion (I think I finished this in December but can't remember...)
Hyperion is by far the best thing I "read" last year. Handmaid's Tale is bleak and disturbing as hell but kinda mind-blowing at the same time (I can see some of that stuff actually happening). Kitchen Confidential was important to me because I so love Anthony Burdain's views towards life. Oddly enough, I learned more about leadership from his book than I thought I would.
