This is a link to my bookshelf on . If you’ve never heard of the site, it’s what I’ve found to be the best way to organize your library and find new content (it recommends books based on your uploads, and also allows you to connect to Facebook and see what your friends who use the site read and what they rated it, an online book club of sorts.) Anyways, I read mostly non-fiction. I’m fascinated with science, technology, intelligence, big data, comedy, music, and business books, but there’s other genres in the 500+ books I’ve pinned so far. And don’t get me wrong, I think most of these books are readable for most everyone, so don’t get scared off by some of these titles. The books and speakers I enjoy and envy most are those who are not only intelligent but can simplify and explain their thesis to the world, the way the authors of do, for example.
Here’s what I’m reading now:
A book about what the most intelligent people in society can’t stop thinking about; I’ve just started it.
The story of 3 different Harvard Business School grads who paved their own ways to success. It ties in a lot of business lessons that the three learned pre and post school, and really inspires me to get working. One of the guys became the largest trader of dog food in Japan simply because he lived there and realized how pampered and regal their dogs are treated there.
The Internet is way too big to be simplified to just Facebook, or buzzfeed (although who doesn’t love those lists), or to ignore entirely. This website is me trying to share basically anything that interests me; I listen to all kinds of music, read daily, watch a lot of stuff, and browse the web for hours; I spend a lot of time searching out different things across a lot of the net, it seemed to me like just a waste to essentially throw away whatever I had just done once I finished; Plus, people seem to ask me a lot what they should get off of amazon, or what movie they should watch, or what would be a good new band to check out; I guess that means that I’m good at the internet or something (there I go, bragging about myself again). Anyways, that’s partially where this idea came from, and I have no idea where it’s gonna go. If you have any ideas I am all ears, any feedback is appreciated. I’ve literally just started blogging so there’s plenty I don’t know or have overlooked.
As far as what I expect to have category-wise, probably something like ‘Music, Humor, Technology, News, Videos, Politics, Read of the Day, Websites, Random’. So, if any of those sound appealing, good; I’ll try to update this thing daily. I probably will even if you don’t like it. Haters.
