Okay, so in an effort to have some accountability for myself I am going to put into writing all the books I want to read for the year. Reading has always been a hobby of mine and these days I have been trying to get into reading more non-fiction. I don't read as quickly as I used to, so I am going to shoot for about 10-12 books on the year! I will also be writing reviews for each book on this blog, which is more for me as a chronicle of the things I have read. Without further ado, here's the list:
- Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean. A book all about tides!
- Gilead. Pulitzer prize winning novel about a preacher reflecting at the end of his life.
- Capital in the 21st Century. Most excited about this one! Its a bit intimidating since this book is enormous and I don't know much about economics but it seems like I could learn a lot!
- The Overstory. Another award winning novel, this one about trees! I've heard so much good stuff about this one.
- Debt: The First 5000 years. This one comes highly recommended. Apparently it shed a lot of light on debt as a driving force of civilization, sounds awesome!
- Milkman. A uniquely voiced novel about trying to fade in during turbulent political times.
- Thinking Fast and Slow. This one I have wanted to read for a while. I have heard amazing things about this book and how it helped people think in news ways.
- Never Let Me Go. Never read anything by Kazuo Ishiguro, but it seems like a great time to start!
- Black Leopard Red Wolf. Probably the least serious in tone of the bunch, but Marlon James is one of the worlds best modern writers and I love the premise behind this one.
Well that's the list! Yea, that's only 9 but honestly I am going to count Capital as 2, that book is enormous.
