Book notes

Reading

These are the books I am actively reading.

  • The Three-Body Problem, Liu Cixin, which is very interesting so far even though it’s taking me many nights to finish it. I should read it during the day sometime!
  • Being, by Zach Ellis, a very short memoir “that works to put into words what it is to be transgender”. I think I got this in Seattle at The Elliot Bay Book Compan several years ago. I’m glad to finally be reading it.
  • Bright Magic, by Alfred Döblin, which I picked up in Berlin after reading and enjoying his Berlin Alexanderplatz before WordCamp Europe in 2019. I mentioned a passage from one of the stories, Astralia, in last week’s note.

Less actively reading

I’m always “reading” a dozen books, some of which I haven’t actually touched in months. These I’ve at least opened at some point in the last month or are collections that I’m working through slowly.

Recently finished

  • The Coaching Habit, by Michael Bungay Stanier, had some great tips. We’ll see if I can put any into practice without rereading it.

Added to the long list

These are the books I’ve run into over the two weeks and added to some sort of “to one day read” list that is ever growing and will never shrink.
