I just realized I read or listened to 12 books in November. What better incentive to share my November reads with you? On average and without a two-week journey to add some much-desired reading time, I read about one new book per week. Add to that some old favorite or other as an audiobook to fall asleep to (must have listened to the first two chapters of Harry Potter about 20 times before managing to stay awake all the way through to the sorting hat).
Though I did just buy a stack of real-life books, a Christmas ritual of mine, born from my book collector’s soul and super-useful when you live in the middle of the woods, where winter means blackouts that may last up to a day.
Here’s my November reading list. Or rather, here’s a list of books I completed because they were well-written, had something to say and offered something to take away.
Colin Hines – Localization, a Global Manifesto
Jodi Taylor – Just One Damned Thing After Another
Erik Barker – Barking up the Wrong Tree
Dr. Carol Dweck – Mindset
Tom Holt – The Outsourcerers Apprentice
Jost Zetzsche – Translation Matters
S. J. Scott – Habit Stacking
Charles Duhigg – The Power of Habit
Tibor R. Mach – The Commons
iMinds – Tragedy of Commons
Jean Tirole – Economics for the Common Good
MJ Demarc – Unscripted
Winter with its long evenings is the perfect time to read up a storm. Is there anything better than a cup of your favorite hot beverage, a snuggly reading chair or sofa, a rainy/snowy day to spend exploring horizons and seeing the world from a different angle?
Don’t fall for the common misconception that books can’t be both entertaining and useful in a business sense. I found all of these works inspiring and fun to read.
Any recommendations for my reading list?
I’m all eyes and can’t wait to read you!
