Summertime is my big chance to read. It’s probably because I like to sit by the pool and go to the beach. When I used to have a personal blog, I used to always post the books I was planning to read during the summer. Now, it’s time to bring back that tradition.
Here are some of the books I’m planning to read this summer:
- Free to Focus by Michael Hyatt because I’ve gotten a lot out of the man’s writings over the years
- Site Reliability Engineering because I’m doing more writing about DevOps and DevSecOps lately so it’s time I better understand the concepts around Site Reliability Engineering and have yet to read this tome despite owning it for a few years
- Taking the Work out of Networking by Karen Wickre because I really need to become a better networker and feel I’ve really slipped in that area recently
- The Innovator’s Dilemma by Clayton M. Christenson because innovation is popping up all over my regular writing topics
- Dreyer’s English by Benjamin Dreyer because there’s no better summer reading than a book about grammar and language
- Bitcoin Billionaires by Ben Mezrich because a story about cryptocurrency and the Winklevi has to be great poolside reading
Of course, there’ll also be some fiction books joining the list as I get closer to some vacation time.
