Books I’ve read, listened to on audiobook, or started in Q2, with very short reviews
Blood, Sweat, and Pixels. Audiobook. I had bought it a while ago when it was on sale, started it and then let it sit for months. A series of true stories about the development of computer games. Excellent if you’re into software.
All-or-Nothing Marriage. Audiobook. I read over half of this book a long time ago. Borrowed the audiobook from the library and finally finished it. A good book on marriage.
Bird by Bird. Audiobook. Excellent book on writing I suspect would be highly enjoyable for any creative person. Highly recommended.
Consider This. Audiobook. Chuck Palahniuk is one of my favorite writers, so when I learned he had written a book on writing, I immediately put a hold on the audiobook. Not as good as Bird by Bird but still really good and a recommendation from me.
The Art of Letting Go. Audiobook. I listened to a trifecta of Richard Rohr books with only Consider This breaking up the trio. This was my favorite of the three. It’s only available as audiobook.
Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life. Audiobook. By Rohr. Good.
The Universal Christ. Audiobook. By Rohr. Long but good. Basically a summation of my spiritual worldview.
Still currently reading:
A Philosophy of Software Design
Also currently reading:
The Savage Detectives
How (Not) to Speak of God
The Left Hand of Darkness. I did not finish but might pick it back up.
Basically what happened was I looked up a bunch of audiobooks on Libby and put holds on them and then either listened to them (mostly on my commutes to and from work) or extended my hold on them until I could listen to them. It’s worked out well in terms of increasing the volume of books I consume. I’ve mostly stopped listening to podcasts.
