November Books Update

About little over six weeks ago I decided to tackle my lack of reading progress [with math]({% post_url 2020-10-06-books-update %}), deducing that if I simply read a certain minimum number of pages per day, I'll finish every book on my list by year's end. Welp...It's working.

Even though I added two books to my original list, I'm still ahead of schedule:

  • The Gift of Failure by Jessica Lahey ✅ DONE

  • The Coddling of the American Mind by Greg Lukianoff & Jonathan Haidt ✅ DONE

  • The Right Side of History by Ben Shapiro ✅ DONE

  • Competing Against Luck by Clayton M. Christensen ✅ DONE

  • Badass: Make Users Awesome by Kathy Sierra ✅ DONE

  • Demand Side Sales by Bob Moesta ✅ DONE

So, what's left?

  • The Innovators Solution by Clayton M. Christensen (280 pages)

  • Scale by Geoffrey West (Audio, 14hrs 47min remaining)

  • Eloquence by Mark Forsyth (Audio, 3hrs 43min remaining)

And just for fun if I have time:

  • The Abide Guide: Living Like Lebowski by Oliver Benjamin and Dwayne Eutsey (256 pages)

It's difficult to judge how the audio books will go since I usually consume those at different times that regular readin' books, but the math for the non-audio books works out as follows:

Total pages: 536 (counting The Abide Guide)

Days left: 35

Pages per day needed: 15.31

After a slow first month of not reading at all, I really got into a groove and made huge progress. I have a new morning routine to thank, which I'll most likely be writing about next, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
