[If possible] Why?

I’m currently reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi.

Next on my list are Atomic Habits by James Clear and The Light Years.

@Ajoshi I read Atomic Habits sometime last year. It’s’ got practical ideas on habit-forming.

For me I’m planning on starting/completing:

  • SQL Antipatterns: explains various wrong assumptions we make on sql designs and alternatives e.g. using id as the primary key on all your tables.
  • 12 Rules for Life: got this book recommended in one of the meetups
  • The Sorceress (Book 3 of the Immortal Nicholas Flammel series): I’m reading together with my siz
  • Site Reliability Engineering by Google: really slow read as I want to get most the concepts discussed. This should span a couple of months.

+1 for 12 rules for life.

It’s interesting and practical, but how much you’ll get from the book depends on how much you apply it.

That goes without saying for most things you read!
I’m slowly learning not to pressure myself with
what I’m reading…

I just finished Chapter1 of SICP (including all of
the exercises) and planning to slowly (and
consistently) keep at it— it’s a rather
difficult re-read imho.

I also picked up “UNIX Shells by Example Fourth
Edition”. I stumbled across this; and it’s useful
to the work I’m doing. I’m writing wrappers around
some commands and it’s important imho to work out
how to track PID’s and manage forks and all of
that good stuff.

Finally, I’m still reading the Non-Violent
Communication :slight_smile:

I’ll be reading The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande.

I’ve heard positive reviews about this book. And It’s been on my reading list for a while now.
