August Reading List

IMG_8908

One of my New Years resolutions was to read 4 books a month, but I let life get the best of me and ended up with a pile of unread books, so I set myself a target of reading as many as I could before I bought a new book. It was quite fun going back into the “library” and revisiting some of the books I’d forgot about. With that out of way, here are the books I’m reading during August! The first book Barbarian Days: Surfing Life was recommended to me via Corporate Lunch podcast. I didn’t research it and kind of bought on a whim hopefully it’s good. I’m trying to up the consistency levels on the blog and post every day (or at minimum Monday – Friday) so hopefully the book The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Writing in the 21st Century will be help along the way! And last but not least, human longevity is a hot button topic within Silicon Valley but I’m not sold on the idea of freezing brains just yet. The Blue Zones adopts a more pragmatic point of view to the whole affair with the author traveling to various places around the world where the population lives the longest and trying to understand why, should be a good read! As always links to purchase can below;
