A quick post to update what I’m reading/listening to this month. I’m a huge fan of audiobooks, as they’re a great way for a dyslexic like me to enjoy more books than I’d ever be able to read. I’m also a fan of ebooks, as being able to control the font size and choice helps as well.
At the moment, I’m working my way through Jack Campbell’s The Lost Fleet. It’s different from most of the other space opera mil-sf I’ve read in years past, I think owing to the focus on light-speed lag and restraint in military actions. Geary is a character who has to fight against the evils he sees in his own fleet and military organization as well as a heartless foe chasing them from system to system.
I’m also reading Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport. Even though I’m already deep into minimalism and taking a break from technology, it’s been a great read for seeing other people’s examples of removing technological dependence.
