On the book front, I have reduced my target for the Goodreads reading challenge from 50 to 30 after realizing that reading everything isn’t the key. The key is read stuff and have time to ponder on them and make it count. I am at 26 books and it is July. It is liberating because I won’t feel under pressure to reading anything new. What is important is to go back to my old notes and ruminate on old stuff I have learnt. Give it time to simmer. Meditate. Focus on Quality not quantity.
I also rediscovered Encylopedia Britannica . I got the app though I am beginning to feel the physical books are better. I liked to flip through the pages and discover new things serendipitously. That is part of Nicholas Carr’s argument in the Shallows.
