A list of books I started in 2019/2018 and never finished/ bought and didn't read or meant to read and never purchased. 
  1.  How I found Freedom in an Unfree World by Harry Browne.  Extreme. And a curious comfort with keeping the N word in the book even after several revisions. Yet, underlying principles are worth exploring as boundary markers. How far should you go to live a life you want. Harry Browne has thoughts. 
  2. Be Unapologetically You
  3. Ultralearning by Scott H. Young
  4. The Only Skill that Matters by Jonathan A. Levi
  5. High Performance Habits by Brendon Buchard  I read this over my holiday and found myself stopping frequently to truly challenge myself on the concepts Brendon was discussing. Most impactful: set intentions. make the main thing, the main thing. Manage energy. It's always about less--never more. Find your PQO. What are the 5 big things. Plan to re-read.

  29. Doughnut Economics by Kate Raworth
  30. Verses of the senior monks by Bhikkhu Sujato & Jessica Walton
  31. A little life by Hanya Yanagihara  I glossed though a lot of the emotionally damaging parts--no intention of bawling my eyes out on a 15 hour flight. That said, a good read. An interesting and frank take on how not everyone gets to 'overcome' sometimes damage lasts through lifetimes.
  32. Principles by Ray Dalio (Re-reading)
  33. The Bead Seller by Sefi Atta  I love reading Sefi's works, so when I found this in a random bookstore in the Berlin ariport (where I had the priviledge of hanging out for 7 hours after a cancelled flight), I had to indulge. Sefi alway brings Nigeria and Nigerians to life in  a way that resonates with me and makes me feel at home. 
  34. My sister the serial killer by Oyinka Braithwaite  Found in a bookstore in Vienna. Characters were a bit too flat for my liking.
  35. Investing in Rental Properties for Beginners by Lisa Phillips Very basic but a different take on real estate investing for a different demographic (the number of times evictions are mentioned in this book is indication enough). Picked up some good tips but no sub $30k properties in my portfolio in the nearest future.
