Another quarter… I finished only 9 books in the past three months, partly because I was busy at work, plus I was away on three trips. But I already had 31 books so far, so I am well on my way to reach my goal of 40 this year.
- The FastDiet: Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, and Live Longer with the Simple Secret of Intermittent Fasting by Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer
- Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work by Chip Heath and Dan Heath
- Nikola Tesla: Renewable Energy Ahead of Its Time by David J. Kent
- Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence by Daniel Goleman
- The Bonesetter’s Daughter by Amy Tan
- The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
- Jesus: A Pilgrimage by James Martin
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Question that Never Goes Away by Philip Yancey
Six non-fictions and three fictions, better than last quarter. I enjoyed most of these nine books – they are quite informative, entertaining, or touching, as the case maybe. The only exception is “Focus” – which seems to be very unfocused. I did like Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence books though.
Will definitely keep reading in the last quarter of the year. I probably should finish all the books that I have started, and that might be it! I will report back after the New Year. So many books, so little time…
