Reading

I start too many books at once, so here’s my current list of unfinished titles. I want to try and keep this list to a maximum of three, but the Butterfly Effect of Reading always has an impact on my reading list. (This will usually include a mixture of physical, Audible and Kindle books.)

  1. Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality by Eliezer Yudkowsky (73%), Kindle
  2. Raptor Red by Robert T. Bakker (72%), Paperback
  3. Fairy Tale by Stephen King (68%), Hardcover
  4. Foundation and Empire by Isaac Asimov (68%), Kindle
  5. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin (25%), Audible
  6. The Almanack of Naval Ravikant by Eric Jorgenson (9%), Kindle
