Reading List

tackling one book at a time

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies... The man who never reads lives only one.” George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

Pile of Books
So many books, so little time.

I have an innumerable number of books that I've placed in the backburner of my reading list. SC once told me, 'You cant read everything'. Why not? We have phones, audiobooks, kindles, nooks, tv, laptops, text-to-speech programs, libraries... We have so many tools at our disposal. What's stopping someone from constantly and consistently reading a few books. It's more than possible.

Partially, the reason why I am posting the reading list is because I want to be held accountable for reading all the books I intend to read. While, there is no particular order to which books I desire to read, I do want to have a balanced reading diet. I tend to heavily lean towards Science Fiction and Fantasy because that is what I am most comfortable with. But, I see the need to read other types of books including technical manuals, philosophy books, and biographies.

I also have a bad habit of not finishing books I've started. As a countermeasure, I've made it a habit of breaking the book down into small measurable chunks (usually by chapters). This especially hope is helpful when I'm reading multiple books concurrently.

Lastly, I enjoy rereading books. Usually my second time round is much more enjoyable than my first read because I focus more on the prose, wordplay, character development and storyline.

Book list:

Note: This is not written in any specific order. I will add more books as I continue to find books I am interested in reading.
