October 22, 2017 – 52 Books – 52 Weeks

I resolved to read 52 books this year – one a week.  The year is almost finished and I’ve read 45. Here are the top 10 books I’ve read so far divided into 2 categories, fiction and non-fiction:

Fiction

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

We Are Legion (We Are Bob) by Dennis E. Taylor

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Non-Fiction

Abundance by Peter Diamandis

 

The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains by Nicholas Carr

Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious by Gerd Gigerenzer

The Haunted Wood: Soviet Espionage in America – The Stalin Era – Allen Weinstein

The Rational Optimist: How Prosperity Evolves by Matt Ridley

I’ve read more good non-fiction this year than fiction.  I highly recommend any and all books on this list but if you only read one – read Abundance by Peter Diamandis.  He explains in detail all the good things happening in the world despite the doom and gloom in the media. If you only read one fiction book – read, We Are Legion (We Are Bob) by Dennis E. Taylor. Mainly because its a fun read and it’s a very interesting premise.
