July 1st, 2020
Earlier this month, I read my first physical book in nearly 10 years.
Since then, I’ve been reading a lot more.
The books I read this month:
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
This is a classic and considered one of the best novels of all time. This was my favorite book of the month and favorite book in recent memory.
The Dog Stars by Peter Heller
I watched a great YouTube video about books. One of the messages from that video was that it doesn’t really matter what you read, but that you’re reading something. So I went to the book store and picked a random one off the shelf. Great book.
Go Ahead In The Rain: Notes to A Tribe Called Quest by Hanif Abdurraqib
One thing that’s cool about reading more books is that you start noticing books everywhere. I found this book deep in some Reddit comments about A Tribe Called Quest. It was an awesome book and also helped me gain some new perspective on what it’s like to be black in America.
Siddhartha by Herman Hesse
An absolute classic must-read. It’s about a journey a man goes on to find truth. The main theme I got from the book is that wisdom can only come from the self and through our own experience. And how important it is to be present with nature.
