So it’s almost 9pm on a pretty productive Wednesday: freelance work is done for the week, successful kick off meeting with inter-agency contract, plus a lead on some more work and meeting on that tomorrow. I *almost* passed up on writing a post for my own blog, but it falls by the wayside way too often. Which is why I’m choosing to do a reading update of a post instead =D
…two pretty heavy nonfiction works: a biography on Kick Kennedy and the autobiography of Roberto Canessa, one of the ruby players who survived the Andes plane crash in the 70s. Of the two, I recommend Canessa’s work a little more; the story of a cannibal cardiologist holds a little more interest than a Anglophile debutante who died too early.
…three things on the docket:
- Glory Over Everything: only a few pages in (I’m busy, obvi) and it’s the sequel to The Kitchen House…which I have not read, but this should stand on its own. I’m told.
- 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl: technically have not started yet.
- Hacking Marketing: Agile Practices to Make Marketing Smarter, Faster, and More Innovative: received for free at the Minneanalytics conference, and so far more engaging that I thought it would be. So good on you, Scott Brinker.
Is it weird that the marketing analytics book is more engaging than the fictional stories on my list?
…currently taking tips. I go in phases when it comes to reading fiction; I’ll either consume mounds of it or it just doesn’t hold my attention. I think I’m feeling the latter lately, so pass on all of your nonfiction, business types reads to me.
So far, on my Goodreads list, I’ve got a book on post-Hurricane Katrina stories, a book on the louse that defeated Napoleon’s grand armee, and the memoir of a gravedigger’s daughter…so yeah.
