Reading list

Neurosurgeons can carve a piece of your brain out of your head and still leave you living and thinking.

But there’s no such thing as a readotomy. There’s no writing without reading.

Last year I’ve taken the decision to read at least 25 books before the end of the year and I’ve reached it by reading in all sorts of places.

For 2011, target is 30 and a good mix of literature and business books – yes, those can be fun and inspiring too.

So, here’s my list. It’s an animal in itself, and it mutates unpredictably, so I’ve caged it in here. Feed the animals at your own peril, and do so one comment at a time.

Reading now (or started at some point and need to finish soon):
Dale Carnegie – How to Stop Worrying and Start Living
Peter Drucker – Management: Tasks Responsibilities, Practices

On my imminent reading list (aka can’t wait to sink my teeth into …)
