Books I Read 2015

I decided I should post this list before we are into 2017. For the past few years I have kept an active list of the books I read in the current year. I believe I got this idea from Patrick Rhoneoriginally though I have seen many people do the same. 

Over the course of the year if I see something that I might be interested in I throw it in a list (this year it in an Apple Notes), then when I ready for a new book I generally grab one from the list that strikes my mood at the time. 

The books are in the order I finished them. I usually have at least two going at any point in time, I blame this on my NADD. I have notes and thoughts on all the of them but this is not meant to be a review, just a collection.

A few years ago I converted to an all digital format, the list links to an authors site directly, Amazon Kindle or Apple iBooks depending where I purchased that item. 

Without going into specifics the ones that are bold are the ones I enjoyed the most.

Books I Read in 2014

For the past few years I have kept an active list of the books I read in the current year. I believe I got this idea from Patrick Rhone originally though I have seen many people do the same. I keep a running list of things I want to read and then grab one from the list that strikes my fancy at the time. The books are in the order I read them. I have various notes on all the of the books but this is not meant to be a review, just a collection.

Without going into specifics the ones that are bold are the ones I enjoyed the most.

Books for 2013

Last year I decided to keep track of all books I read. I have a few notes for each book in a notebook but this post is not about rating of them. I only read non-fiction. I get a lot of grief for that. I struggle to get into fiction but I am frequently told I should explore outside of my comfort zone in order to help me relax more. The problem I have is I do relax when reading this style of book.

Regarding the selection of books some read to learn about a topic, fill a curiosity void or just check out someones writing style.

Below is a list of books I finished for the year. The order is strictly the order that they were completed because many times I have two or three going at the same time. Without going into specifics the ones that are bold are the ones I enjoyed the most.

If you have read any of these I would love to know your thoughts. What was your favorite book of 2013?

Books I Read in 2012

I love to read but almost all of is non-fiction -much like Justin Blanton. I am fascinated with books that offer examples. case studies and practical elements. Most of my reading is around business and marketing books. I get a lot of flack for this.

This year I read 29 books – all of them on an iPhone or iPad. One of the reasons for using an “i”Device is I can have several with me all the time. If I hit a lull in a book I can stop and start another and go back to the prior one later. It cuts down on weight in my bag and it makes me feel like I am doing something better for the environment by not cutting down trees (this may or may not be true).

There were a few other books I started but was not able to get through because they jsut did not capture me enough to get through. The books are in no particular order but first four were by far my favorites.

Book reading on iPhone just got 23% better — macfilos

Michael at MacFilos beat me to writing about this.  I resisted reading on the iPhone for a long time before I took the leap.  My first foray was purely due to laziness of not wanting to get out of bed to get my iPad, I had my phone next to me as an alarm clock.  Ever since then I have been reading at least 70% on my phone.  The new screen makes a very big difference – Michael demonstrates with nice screen shots

Thanks Michael

Studio Neat — It Will Be Exhilarating

Yesterday I was talking with a friend about Kickstarter.  I was doing my best to explain how process works and giving her examples of successful projects that I have funded in the past. One of those examples was Studio Neat with the Glif.  This morning I opened up my reader and see that Shawn Blanc wrote a piece about a new book from the founders Tom and Dan about their expereinces over the past two years. From Shawns site to Studio Neat to check out.  Looking forward to reading “It will be exhilarating” ebook today!
