One thing that hasn't and won't change is my love for audio entertainment. I'm already on the highest plan on Audible that's available but I still end up buying several credits every few weeks. I wish Audible had a better content discovery engine so that I can spend less time browsing and searching for new books to listen to.
Here are some of my top listens for this month:
Born A Crime by Trevor Noah
Wow. This is going to win LOTS of awards. It's one of those books that can only be narrated by the author because no one else can pull off what he can do. Story is amazing. Performance is amazing. Strong contender for book of the year and we're barely 2 months into 2017.
Buy A Bullet by Gregg Hurwitz
An in-between-a-sode for the Orphan X series. Not bad but the over dramatization of Silicon Valley tech startup billionaire made me cringe at several points. Despite this, it was good enough to hold me over until the sequel came out shortly after.
Nowhere Man by Gregg Hurwitz
This is book 2 of the Orphan X series. Solid read and I am definitely hooked on this series. Cannot wait for the next one to come out. I can easily see Hollywood making this into a movie franchise.
Lunar Discovery by Salvador Mercer
This is more in the vein of The Martian and other more science-driven plots. Not a lot of action, but it was still very suspenseful and interesting. This is the first book of a new series so I'm looking forward to reading the next one.
The Wrong Unit by Rob Dircks
Funny and surprisingly heartwarming story about a robot that helps future humans defeat their robot overlords. Best book among all the books written by this author in my opinion. I hope he writes more books like this.
Made to Stick by Chip Heath and Dan Heath
I read the dead tree version of this years ago but wanted to revisit it in audio form. Did not disappoint. Great lessons about marketing and leadership. Very relevant to my recent endeavors in creating viral videos.
What I'm Currently Listening To...
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
Audible is flooded with glowing reviews for this author. This is the first time I'm reading one of his books and I am purposely starting with this one because I'm very interested in Norse mythology. It goes deeper into the world of Thor and Odin and I'm enjoying it so far.
