I try and read about two to three books at a time, some as audiobooks to take the maximum use of my time. My current reading list is below, I will share my notes and thoughts as I read them. I hope my reflections and takeaways help you decide to pick up one of these books.
I never made enough time for reading books, and spent most of my time online, reading articles or being a news junkie. Other than for the Harry Potter series (which I hope to fully complete eventually, and thus far been a real pleasure) I don’t read as much fiction and enjoy historical biographies or books that have some sort of present-day relevance.
