A little heavy on podcasts this week.
Lately I’ve been reading a lot of non-fiction and have been watching some documentaries like The Roosevelts. I’ve found them to be incredibly interesting, but also very much in depth with a lot of information to digest. Sometimes it feels like I’m back in middle school, but I’ve started to take notes on what I’ve been reading and watching.
Over the course of the last month, I’ve been reading a three book series written by Ian W. Toll on the history of World War II in the Pacific. I’m currently on the second book and I can’t recommend it enough.
As a kid, I loved it when my parents took me to the library. I read often and loved checking out books to read. As an adult it’s no different.
While I didn't quite hit my 2022 goal of 30 books, I did manage to read 20 books.
Earlier this year I backed a Kickstarter campaign by Cory Doctorow & Rebecca Giblin for their new book Chokepoint Capitalism. I had read several of Cory's books and consider him someone who is knowledgeable about the creative industry. So when the Kickstarter campaign popped up in my feeds, I decided it was worth my investment, and a read.
I didn't read as much as I wanted to in 2021, managing a measly nine books.
