I love to read. The advent of the Kindle has been a god-send for me, as it allows me to read any number of books while on the go. I’m slightly unusual (slightly?) in that I like to have a few books on the go at any one time.
For the last few years, I’ve started each January with a list of books I’d like to read. I’ve noted over time that I spot an interesting book, or a friend or colleague recommends one, yet I somehow lost the details.
So I’ve been using Evernote (and now Postach.io) to keep a list of what I’d like to read – acknowledging that it’s not an instruction manual or challenge, but more of an aide memoire when I’m choosing something new to buy from the Kindle store.
As things stand, 2014’s list looks like this. I reserve the right to drop books after starting them (life’s too short to finish a book you’re not enjoying) and add to the list as additional interesting reads crop up.
I’ve divided them up thematically – some for work, some for leisure – and added links to each on Amazon. (Other book retailer are available…)
