Because it’s fun for me, I usually try to keep a few different kinds of books on the go at any given time. As much as possible, I’ll have one thought provoking read, another practical one, another just for fun book going all the time. Whenever I enter a busy season, as I’m in right now, it’s challenging to maintain this rhythm. Often, the just for fun is what becomes most alluring. Even so, I still try. So here’s a look at what I’ve got going now and what’s coming up very soon:
- Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t by Jim Collins. A modern business classic, that’s made it to the re-read pile.
- Wingfeather Tales edited by Andrew Peterson. I’ve been looking forward to reentering the world of the Wingfeather Saga for months now. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens when other authors play in Peterson’s sandbox.
- The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett. I’ve read a few Discworld novels, but never the very first one. It’s time to correct that. (Pratchett is an acquired taste, so I completely understand if you’re not a fan.)
- Struck by Russ Ramsey. I’m trying to get back to this one. I was derailed for a couple of weeks, but what I’ve read has been beautiful.
- Batman by Tom King. I’m a bit behind in my Batman reading, so I’m looking forward to getting caught up on the “I Am…” stories (“I Am Suicide” and “I Am Bane“), as well as Batman/The Flash: The Button.
