This December, what will you be reading?

This coming December, as things are normalizing, what books are you planning (or will continue) to read?
[If possible] Why?

I’m currently reading Mask of Troy, but I’m excited to reading Julius Caesar by Shakespeare and possibly ‘The Wealth of Nations’ by Adam Smith

Just finalizing a draft copy of “Grokking
Simplicity”. Nice reading that discusses
Functional Programming without the jargon. Can’t
wait for the final copy.

Also, got back into SICP. Majorly because I’m more
mature and understand the concepts better.

Finally, I want to read Judea Pearl’s: The book of
why mostly because my employer bought me a copy
and he strongly recommends it. So heck, why not?

I’m currently reading Mask of Troy,

Book 5 of a 10 book series! Oof! I envy
you. Somewhere along the way I gave up on reading
series… Need to get back to that space—
problem is, I’ve been saying that for a long time
now :’(

but I’m excited to reading Julius Caesar by
Shakespeare and possibly ‘The Wealth of Nations’
by Adam Smith

Oof! Those sound like hardcore classics \m/\m/

Luckily, it acts pretty much as a standalone. I didn’t even know it was part of a series lol

Honestly, I need to go through some classics.

Ha! :slight_smile:

I’ve always found classics had to read. And by
classics, mean books written before the calculus
was invented :wink:

I’m currently re-reading Fooled by Randomness by Nassim Taleb to kill time.

However a colleague of mine recommended to me to read The Stormlight Archive series starting with the first book called The Way of Kings. I’m not sure if anyone could thumbs up this recommendation. I’ll hopefully be on this as well once I acquire a copy.

Stormlight archive is an amazing series. The only problem I have with it is that it isn’t complete. I’ve only read the first two books in the series though.

Currently, I’m reading The Alchemyst and Show me, Don’t Tell Me

Second thumbs up for the Stormlight Archive is incredibly. Sanderson’s hard magic systems are usually great, Roshar is a beautiful setting, and the characters are rich and compelling.
