Making the most of your time…

Do you have a few books that you’ve bought recently, but you haven’t finished reading cover to cover? I can’t stand that feeling — There are two cinematography and a few tech books that I’ll feel really good when I finish up 🙂

Simultaneously, I find that I’m nearly always able to finish BOOK ON TAPE / Audible / 有声读物 versions of any book that I purchase. With my iPhone it’s more convenient than ever before!

Since I started LISTENING to books via Audible.com, back in May 2005, I’ve listened to 118 books with a combined time of 26.6 days. There are a few of these (Adventure Capitalist, first and all time favorite) that I’ve listened to end to end several times!

Of course, the downside of the audible version of books is that the selection is so small ~ but I’ve also found the limit in scope to be a pleasant diversion from the routines that I frequently find myself settling into…

I was quite excited tonight to find:

Nixon and Mao: The Week That Changed the World

I listened to the sample and it sounds extremely interesting….

Other books in audible form that appear quite interesting include:

  • Confessions of a Serial Entrepreneur – An Adventure Story (Audible) (Amazon)
  • Marx’s Das Kapital: A Biography (Audible) (Amazon)
  • The War That Made America: French and Indian War (Audible) (Amazon)
  • Storm and Conquest: The Clash of Empires in the Eastern Seas, 1809 (Audible Only)

Additionally, I noticed a whole “Books that changed the World” series is available, not completely yet in audible form, but if you’ll occasionally settle for the wikipedia version of history, you might want to check out these…

  • Homer’s the Iliad and the Odyssey
  • Plato’s Republic
  • Darwin’s Origin of Species
  • The Qur’an
  • The Bible
  • Clausewitz’s on War
  • On The Wealth of Nation
