Over the last few years I’ve gone back and forth between reading 2-4 books month. What started off as some sort of weird challenge to see how many books I could get through in a calendar year, has now evolved into a life-long practise (I hope) of trying to soak up much knowledge as I can. There’s a lot to be said about reading books, more than I care to expand on here, I think sometimes book readers can veer on the side of extreme self adulation when talking about books. It’s not that big of a deal and it’s not something everyone should do if they don’t want to. But what I will say is, being able to carve out a minimum of a 1 hour a day of reading time, away from any technological device has greatly benefited my life in ways I’ll probably only understand when I’m old and grey.
With that being said here’s the books I’m currently reading in the month of September – I picked up ‘City of Night’ on the back reading ‘Please Kill Me’ – citations are a great way to get book recommendations – and ‘The Gift of Fear’ after listening to an episode of Sam Harris’s Waking Up podcast with the author Gavin DeBecker. Enjoy.
