Reading List

This page is my reading list. If you think there is something I should explore, please let me know.

I used to read one book every few months or so until I found audiobooks. Once you get used to listening at 3x, you maintain good comprehension. Since then, I've been "reading" while riding the train to work, at the gym, and pretty much any time I can stick my AirPods in my ears.

It's the single most valuable tip I have.

I know it sounds like an ad, but consider downloading Audible and listening to your books while commuting, walking, relaxing, or any time you can't be sitting and reading.
