What I Read

Lately, I've been involved in a number of discussions around books. For a long time, I didn't read a lot, at least in terms of books. I probably went a good 10 years without getting through an entire book. I had trouble making the time to read, and I didn't want to be hauling them around, since I tend to fill my idle time reading things. In the last few years, however, I've discovered things like Kindle and Audible, and both make it much easier for me to get through books.  

Which brings me to the point of this post - so now that I'm reading again, I find myself in conversations where the "have you read this book?" question is tossed out by someone. The more I thought about it, I realized that my reading list was a lot longer than I thought. It's  by no means legendary, as I see plenty of people in my Facebook and Twitter communities that are reading far more voraciously than I (and I'm in awe of it - looking at you, Duffbert).

For what it's worth, though, I'm working on a series of posts for the books I've been through (either Kindle or Audible) and the one's I'm reading now. Rather than do just one long post with all of them in it, I'll post them individually, with a brief summary/review for each. It will be a good test of my memory, and will give me an opportunity to revisit what I got from each. As I get caught up, don't be surprised if you see only a short review versus something more detailed; I'll update when & where I can.

NOTE: If you're interested in some additional info on Audible (which is a lifesaver), take a look at the piece I wrote on the Beyond The Defaults site.
