What I've read, what I'm reading and what I'm reading next.
Coaching Better Every Season by Wade Gilbert - Perhaps an odd book for someone to read who’s not a coach, but I’ve been interested in this book since I first heard of it a few years ago.
La Belle Sauvage by Phillip Pullman - Back to Phillip Pullman’s fantasy world where humans souls exist as dæmons.
Traitors of Rome by Simon Scarrow - Another favourite series of mine, but I seemed to have lost my place here as there are 18 books now in this series and I’m pretty sure I have only read a handful of them. Might just start the whole series over again.
Dune by Frank Herbert - Confession time. I’ve never read this. Despite being a big fan of science fiction, it’s been one of those books that I just haven’t read. I want to read this though before the movie hits the big screen.
Super Thinking by Gabriel Weinberg - The founder of DuckDuckGo shows how mental models can aid our decision-making.
Darien - Empire of Salt (book 1) by C. F. Iggulden - Yes it’s the same Conn Iggulden that writes the epic historical books. As much as I love those books, I struggled with this to begin with. It is a new take on the fantasy genre which did make it stand out from other fantasy booked I’ve read though.
Atomic Habits by James Clear - Habits are supposed to be the key to being productive and efficient. There’s lots of great plans and tips in this book to get you started.
Shian - Empire of Salt (book 2) by C. F. Iggulden - The sequel to Darien didn’t take as long for me to get into it.
Modern Front-End Development for Rails by Noel Rappin - I read the beta of this book from the Pragmatic Publishers. The use of React.js for a front-end of a Rails application has opened my eyes a bit. I used to be dead against the use of React.js and Vue.js but there are cases where these libraries can make the front-end simpler for the end-user.
The Falcon of Sparta by Conn Iggulden - The story of Cyrus the Younger and his plan to claim the throne from his older brother at the Battle of Cunaxa. I loved this. A great read.
