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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
