Books I want to read in the next few months, right now

I have a pinned note in my Notes app where I write down book recommendations. Over time, the list grows and grows, and I have to go back and pick out what still excites me when I remember the title.

I pick books based on what I’m excited to start reading, because if I’m not interested in the book, I try to force myself through it, and then lose my reading habit.

Here’s what I feel excited to read:

  • 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing
  • Words that Work
  • Impro
  • Catcher in the Rye
  • Aeneid (going to be a hard read, I know it)
  • Antifragile
  • Getting Things Done

I’m working on a book right now, but after I’m done, gonna get to Catcher in the Rye and GTD. I’m stoked :)
