Knowledge & Power

Posted by rsohmeradmin on September 20, 2017

A few weeks ago, someone on twitter asked me what the last book I read was.

After thinking about it, I was embarrassed to admit I didn’t remember. Not because my memory is utter shite (it is), but because I hadn’t read a full book in an awfully long time.

That surprised the hell out of me, considering how much I read on a daily basis. But when I stopped to consider, it dawned on me that all I’ve been reading lately is Time, The Atlantic, Newsweek, Wired, Fast Company, The Economist and a smattering of other publications.

When did I stop reading books? How could this have happened?

I’ve always been of the mindset that you need to read three times as much as you write, and yet here I was, admitting that I stopped reading.

For the first time in my life, I had to make the conscious decision to start reading again, and proud to say, that after a couple of weeks, I’m back on the wagon. Off the wagon? …Near the wagon.

Considering my interest in politics and news, I began with MSNBC’s Katy Tur’s book about her time on the campaign trail with Trump, and now I’m reading Clinton’s ‘What Happened’, which I’m enjoying far more than I thought.

All this goes to say, my brain mouth is digesting words as fast as I can get them, so I’m looking for recommendations of what I should read. Keep in mind, I’m a big fan of differing viewpoints, despite where I personally stand politically.

Hop in the comments and let me know, won’t you?
