Happy 2019 everyone!
A new year means it’s time for a new reading list!
I didn’t read nearly as much as I wanted to last year. This was mostly because I was just so busy the second half of the year finishing my MS in Applied Math and Stats I barely had time to pick up a non-work related book. But it also didn’t help that I didn’t do a good job of keeping a list of books to read. I’m going to try to be better about both of those things this year.
Something else I want to try to do is journal (short) reflections after finishing each book. I’m sure they won’t be anything profound, but I think it’ll be nice to have even just a couple sentences to look back on to remind myself what I thought of the book and how I felt reading it.
