Here for your reading pleasure are the books I read in November 2013.
I love to organize and make lists so keeping track of all the books I’ve read, am reading and want to read is fun for me. Now judging by my page views maybe it isn’t so fun for you dear reader, but I digress.
Some people play video games or listen to music. I think about new nonfiction books I can’t wait to read. So all you Deadheads, Fishheads, Little Monsters and Beliebers can keep on doing what you do.
I’ll be here building the nonfiction book groupie fan base.
Here is what I read in November 2013:
Derek Sivers is not your typical entrepreneur, which makes what he has to say useful to anyone tired of the same old clichés about building your business. If I could have dinner with Derek, Shane Parrish of Farnam Street and Ryan Holiday we would undoubtedly have a great conversation. And I would get drunk; I can’t vouch for the others.
This book costs less than $2.00, so buy it and get a ringside seat at the fight over how much we pay for e-books. Thanks Steve Jobs (said sarcastically).
Someday, probably a Tuesday, I will be able to make perfect decisions. Until then I’ll read books like this one to improve my decision-making abilities.
One of my favorite books of the year. And no, I’m not like all those other posers whose “Best of the Year” lists feature all the books that just came out. I promise. Pinky promise?
What makes this book so great is here you have one of the most innovative companies (now worth billions) being created by a bunch of tech nerds who have all the human frailties of everyone you and I have ever worked with.
Maybe it just gave me hope that if they can do it with all their drama so can you and I. Hello Codecademy.
So there you have it, all four books I read in November. FOUR BOOKS! I read close to 15 in July. What happened?
My lovely wife and I had a baby boy in September, and you would know that if you came around here more often. But I’ll give you a pass if you give me a pass while I learn how to raise my son and still read all the time.
Maybe I should write that book…
If you enjoyed this post, I'd be very grateful if you'd help it spread by emailing it to a friend or colleague, or sharing it on Facebook or Twitter. Thank you!
The above links for books will take you to Amazon (the bookstore, not the river) and should you find it in your heart to purchase that book I will receive some small compensation. Which in reality I will probably spend at Amazon so I can buy more books. Such is the circle of life. And such is my attempt at full disclosure.
