I hit my goal of reading one book a month for 2020. That is the most non-school related reading I have done since I was a teenager, and it was really fun! For the first time in nearly a decade I decided it was ok to spend time reading for fun (aka sci-fi) and not just for work. I also read a WWII story which was something completely different for me, I really enjoyed diving into something new.
This year I learned that there are benefits to reading for fun as well as for learning, and reading for fun. Reading sci-fi or fantasy fuels my creativity and let’s me think differently about the world. Reading books about history helps me understand humanity’s past and the ways we have behaved. There is benefit to seeing the world through someone else’s eyes whether it is fact or fiction.
Books I read in 2020:
- Confident Data Skills: Master the Fundamentals of Working with Data and Supercharge Your Career by Kirill Eremenko
My goal for 2021 is to join the #bookaweekchallenge, what books should I put on that list?
