With all that listed - it should first be obvious that I like Star Wars! Not as much as this list may indicate, but I wanted my Audible experience to be fun, I like science fiction, and I found that Star Wars audible title’s are REALLY well produced. The variety of voices used by the narrator, the sound effects (laser blast fire, droid beeps and boops, the hum of a lightsaber etc.), and John Williams Soundtrack really make you feel like you’re in the Star Wars universe. It’s fun getting insight into the new movies too.

Flash Boys was a recommendation from a friend that was quite interesting. I believe I listened to this one around the time I watched The Wolves of Wallstreet and The Big Short - so it seemed to fit in at the time. A history of high frequency trading and the men behind it - and a discussion of the corruption surrounding it.

I’ll lump titles like Freakonimcs, Eat Move Sleep, Brain Maker, Art of the Start, Algorithms to Live By, and The Willpower Instinct into a group that combines my background in psychology and programming and general interest in philosophy, biology, etc. These titles are interesting takes on human behavior or how to change it - mentally or physically. I have to admit that after reading Brain Maker I was a bit amazed by some of the claims, went to google and did some research and was quite disappointed. Still an interesting read - but if anything sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

The 1984 purchase had nothing to do with the election - in fact, it was purchased several months prior. It was a book I didn’t have to read in high school that I heard about so much - I felt like it was finally time to read it! I actually think it was on sale and I was done with my current credits so I snagged it.

I don’t feel the need to go into super deep analysis of any of these titles. This is more just a list to show that I’ve been keeping up with some of the goals established in my second blog post - despite not being so great about actually posting to this blog!
