Winter hibernation

Books 2014

Winter is here. Day light saving is gone! I hate winter timing.

This year, I am not going to hibernate. In 2012 I went into a year-long challenge to read 52 books. I ended up reading 27 books. The next couple of years, I probably read 2 books. So this year, I am renewing the challenge.

Two hundred and fifty pages per week, is 5 pages in 15 minutes, 8 times a day.

All I need is 8 quarter-hour gaps during every day. If I can guarantee that, I can read 52 books for the year. And here are some books.

  • Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t
  • The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature
  • Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation
  • Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die
  • Mother
  • Avoid Boring People: Lessons from a Life in Science
  • Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity
  • The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World
  • Bad Science
  • Creativity
  • Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking
  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard
  • Purple Cow: Transform Your Business by Being Remarkable
  • The Upside of Irrationality: The Unexpected Benefits of Defying Logic at Work and at Home
  • Thinking, Fast and Slow
  • The Labours of Hercules (Hercule Poirot, #26)
