For fiction: currently reading Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer and quite enjoying it

Nonfiction I’m reading Winners Take All by Anand Giridharadas. It’s about how some people trying to make positive change in the world end up enforcing the status quo (sometimes without knowing it). It’s a good take on nonprofits / social enterprises and the such.

I really enjoyed Annhilation, I reminded me of Roadside Picnic a bit.

Currently reading: “Atomic Habits” by James Clear. Having read a bunch of self-help books, there’s not much new stuff in here. But the author writes more clearly and concise than expected, and easily links his ideas to neighbouring topics like identity, emotions, beliefs. Not bad.

Great book! Even if you don’t turn yourself into a little habit machine being able to identify ways to stop habits or even just talk about it with others is nice.

A Buddhist friend gave me “After the Ecstasy, the Laundry: How the Heart Grows Wise on the Spiritual Path” by Jack Kornfield to read. Pretty much from the start it is not uplifting at all but it has a few interesting paragraphs for example the anecdote where the Dalai Lama started crying after a Tibetan nun made cleverly clear in a meeting that male domination is bad within their structure. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Kornfield

  • Endurance by Alfred Lansing - I still can’t believe that Shackleton didn’t lose a single man throughout their entire ordeal
  • A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini - this was my first read when I recently delved into the middle-eastern world and it remains an outlier. Despite being fiction, it’s very much an accurate representation of the real world unfortunately.
  • Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami - I read this once every year because it’s just a great work of fiction.
  • Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker - everyone should read this to become a better version of themselves by understanding their sleep hygiene and how their current sleep regime may be detrimental to their body and lives.

I’m currently listening to The Flame Bearer (Last Kingdom book #10) and reading Season of Storms (The Witcher #8).

I don’t really have “favourite books” or if I did the list would be very long. Some notable ones are Name of the Wind, The First Law series, anything by Brandon Sanderson, and I recently read The Salt Path which was very good, too.

Non Fiction: Reading Rock and Roll with Ember Octane, Crafting Interpreters, and Phoenix in Action.
