I read physical books and listen to a lot of Audible. I got away from using an e-reader years ago and haven’t gone back. This photo shows the physical books that made the 2023 priority stack. I like to have options and prefer to go back and forth, so I typically have 3-5 books going at once.

Here’s what I’m reading now:

  1. Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss. A book on negotiation. I put this book in the Christmas stockings for all four of our kids (ages 20-26) and their significant others. They’ve all agreed to read the full book. In February, I’ll send them questions for discussion and we’ll conduct our own “book club” review session.
  2. Building a Second Brain by Tiago Forte. This was recommended by several #ship30for30 cohorts when I asked a question about organization in the discussion groups. I’m super excited to take advantage of this system. My goal is to establish a better structure and reduce the number of apps I use for content/lists/to do’s/notes/data/research.
  3. 101 Essays That Will Change The Way You Think by Brianna Wiest. These essays are summaries of works from others, but easy to digest in 3-5 minutes.In Audible, I’m into Discipline is Destiny by Ryan Holiday and Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl (on part 2 – Logotherapy). Just finished: The Girls with No Names by Serena Burdick. About to start: Upstairs at the White House by J. B. West.

Are any of these titles on your “already read” or “to read” list? Are there any I should drop? Do you read one book at a time or multiple books at once? Send me an email and let me know. I’d love to hear from you!
