Currently reading Capital by Karl Marx. It’s a great book so far, I recommend ^^
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.
Non fiction: What Is To Be Done
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
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.
I am currently reading The Forever War for the first time
