Reading is important. It teaches you to focus, pay attention, put away your phone, and can expose you to new ideas, get you to think, or entertain you in ways that engage your brain.
All good stuff.
I have consistently been an inconsistent reader throughout my life. I go through phases where I read every day and phases where I don’t read for months on end. So this list comes with no guarantees.
Below is a list of books I’ve read, or am actively reading. No, this is not an exhaustive list of all books I’ve ever read. It only includes books I’ve read (or am currently reading) beginning May 2020. My most recent reads are listed first and older reads are listed last:
- The Room Where It Happened by John Bolton (June 2020-in process)
- Why Buddhism is True by Robert Wright (July 2020-in process)
- Running on Empty by Marshall Ulrich (June 2020)
- Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins (June 2020)
- Run Less Run Faster by Bill Pierce, Scott Murr, and Ray Moss (June 2020)
Switch by Chip Heath & Dan Heath(This was my second try at reading this book and I bailed after 1 chapter, again. I just couldn’t get into it.)
