How many books have I read in the past year? Two, maybe three. How many books do I have in my “to-read” list on GoodReads? Over 60 and counting.
Clearly something’s gotta give if I ever want to read every book on that list. To start myself off, I have selected 8 books (4 fiction and 4 non fiction) to read. I’m also imposing the following challenge on myself: Read at least one chapter of each book on my reading-list a week. This is not to say that I will not read more; I am merely setting a minimum for myself.
After reading each book, I will write a small reflection on it, and post it as a new article on Medium. You should expect only 1-2 sentences, unless the book was exceptionally good (or bad), in which case I may choose to write more.
Here’s my list:
Good to Great by Jim Collins
The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene
The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins
The Innovator’s Dilemma by Clayton M. Christensen
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
