My Reading List

I try to read as many books as possible.  I have the bad habit of reading too many books in parallel and then quickly losing interest and not finishing the majority of the books I read.  I’m working on it.

Currently I’m reading:

“The Art of the Start” by: Guy Kawasaki

This one is a classic business book and a must read.  I actually just completed this one, and will probably do a detailed review.  Overall I highly recommend it.

The Nomadic Developer: Surviving and Thriving in the World of Technology Consulting

This book is about the life of a software consultant.  So far I’m about 80% of the way through it.  It’s more geared towards a junior developer who is thinking about joining a consulting company.  Not really targeted towards me but so far I’ve found it interested to get a glimpse into the lifestyle of a consultant developer.

The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich

Another absolute classic.  I first read this one many years back.  I actually lost it for many years and just found it, so I thought I’d give it another read through.  This book is chock full of tips on managing your work life and improving your productivity.

Buying a Second Home: Income, Getaway or Retirement

Michele and I are thinking about getting a place up in the whites as a home base for skiing, hiking, and potentially water sports.  I’m about 25% through this one and so far the content is pretty obvious.

So, four books in progress is fairly light for me.  I’ll try to post some detailed book reviews.  I figure the blog would be a good way for me to reinforce any lessons from these books.
