Summary of recent reading(April-June 2020)

  • Deep Work(Audiobook) by Cal Newport: Somewhat of a re-read. I read most of the book a few years ago but never finished it. Like most of the books in the category, most of the value from reading this book comes just from getting nudged into assessing the things you value and improving your current systems even if just by a smidge.

  • Jhegaala by Steven Brust: Entertaining read but I found the ending to be a bit unsatisfying.

  • Iorich by Steven Brust: Another great story in the series. I don’t have anything specific to say about the book itself, but the way larger themes build across these books while the individual books are each feel “episodic” makes you really admire Brust for the way he has constructed this series.
