Book list

April Book Recommendation and Words of Wisdom

I enjoy reading. A little too much sometimes. In fact, I publish my book list every year so I can keep track of what I’ve read. I love reading a book that can challenge my way of thinking and get me to see the world in a different way. This may come in the form of a good biography, science fiction, a murder mystery, or just a short book with simple messages.

March Book Recommendation & Words of Wisdom

A couple years back, I read a fascinating book called Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage (thank you for the recommendation Bogdan). It tells the story of Ernest Shackleton and his crew’s attempt to explore Antarctica. During this expedition, their ship – The Endurance – got stuck in the ice and ultimately sank, never to be seen again… or so we thought…

2020 Book List

I had a goal of finishing 2 books a week, 104 for the year. We finished 116. Here’s the list.

How to read 2 (or more) books a week

I posted recently about my goal to finish 2 books per week throughout 2020. We haven’t completed the year yet, but I’m just ahead of schedule.

A kind reader commented asking how I go about finishing 2 books per week and I thought I’d share my strategy.

(Not good) Evolution since 1776

I just finished reading Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. This is the catalyst that inspired Lin Manuel Miranda to create the Broadway hit, Hamilton.

This book is absolutely fascinating.

The Jesus I Never Knew

This is by far the most frequently recommended book I’ve ever read, meaning, I have probably bought a couple dozen copies of this book and given them to friends and family.

Permanent Record

If you’ve ever wondered if your computer webcam is spying on you… according to Edward Snowden, the answer is yes. So is your phone camera and microphone. So is your app usage, your photos, and your web activity.

Fear: Trump in the White House

I haven’t experienced a more polarizing individual in my life than President Donald Trump.

Real estate mogul. WWE wrestler. Reality TV sensation. Womaniziner. President.

After finishing the book, I had a tough time reconciling what I was being fed.

The Fountainhead

The Fountainhead held the top spot in my “Favorite Books” list for a long time and I recently decided to read (listen) to it again.

The Fountainhead highlights the difference between producers and second-handers. Instead of review, I thought I’d post some of the most meaningful quotes from the book and allow you to get a glimpse into some of the ideas that are within the book.

Atlas Shrugged

In 1991, the Library of Congress conducted a survey on reading habits and respondents chose the Bible as the book that made the most difference in their lives.
The second most influential book? Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
