2023 Reading List

The following are the books I hope to finish reading by 2023. I have a goal of reading at least twenty books by the end of year. Last year, I probably read close to thirty books but only managed to finish fewer than half of them. I am a fairly liberal reader, so when the book I am reading bores me, I would just leave it and pick up another one.

I already maintained a reading list (for books that I have read) in my Books page. But this is the first time I share ones that I haven't read. I usually pick up a book whenever I want to, but after seeing Lex Fridman planned ahead and shared the list, I am intrigued to share one myself. Some of the books I listed below are partially read, but haven't been finished.

  1. Superintelligence, by Nick Bostrom
  2. The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, by Thomas S. Kuhn
  3. Homo Deus, by Yuval Noah Harari
  4. The Dream Machine, by M. Mitchell Waldrop
  5. The Myth of Artificial Intelligence, by Erik J. Larson
  6. Genius Makers, by Cade Metz
  7. Meditations, by Marcus Aurelius
  8. Discipline is Destiny, by Ryan Holiday
  9. Turn The Ship Around, by L. David Marquet
  10. Let My People Go Surfing, by Yvon Chouinard
  11. Build, by Tony Fadell
  12. Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card
  13. Aroma Karsa, by Dewi Lestari
  14. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norell, by Susanna Clarke
  15. Rendezvous with Rama, by Arthur C. Clarke
  16. The Fifth Season, by N.K. Jemisin
  17. Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley
  18. Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy, by Douglas Adams
  19. Foundation, by Isaac Asimov
  20. The Plague, by Albert Camus

I leave some slots for books that are mandatory to read in my company's book reading club. Usually we read 1 book for every 6 weeks. So in a year we might have 7-8 books read from the commitment.
