In an attempt to post more, I’m starting a series called “What I’m Reading.”

I try to read a decent amount and at any given time I’m usually in the middle of a number of books. To motivate myself to read more (and get some tracking), the last few years I’ve set goals for the number of books I’d like to accomplish for the year. Last year’s total was fifteen books and thanks to a number of generous gifts and intercontinental flights, a late December reading surge set the 2023 total at nineteen books read.

This year’s goal is twenty books. With three complete and four currently in progress.


  1. “Same as Ever: A Guide to What Never Changes”, Morgan Housel
  2. “Speak Like Churchill, Stand Like Lincoln: 21 Powerful Secrets of History’s Greatest Speakers”, James C. Humes
  3. “Death’s End”, Cixin Liu (Ken Liu, Translator)


I’m always on the hunt for good book recommendations - feel free to drop a line with yours!
