What’s on Your Reading List?

Summer is well under way here in Vermont, and school’s out. But, I was the word nerd in school, who at the end of each school year, received my Summer Reading List with glee, not gloom.

Annually, I challenged myself – how many books from this list could I read before school started again? Some years, it was too easy. Other years, the books were heavier – literally, and philosophically, er figuratively.

As a youth and university student, what I read for fun made others cringe . Think Tolstoy, Dante, and Conrad.

It wasn’t until I got older, I turned to more fun pursuits – Clive Cussler, Robert LudlumDiana Gabaldon, George R.R. Martin, J.K. Rowling, and the list goes on for miles. But, between the two, I visited the likes of Philip Roth, Salman Rushdie, and Paulo Coehlo…again, to name a few.

And in recent weeks, my once few and far between nonfiction reads – Bill Bryson, Steven Pinker, Malcolm Gladwell, and Lisa Randall – became two in a row.

As I finished Brigette Hyacinth’s The Future of Leadership: Rise of Artificial Intelligence, Automation, and Robotics, I received (same day, mind you) Shane Snow’s Dream Teams.

Where did all that reading lead you may be asking yourself? It lead to the article below, and some fascinating insights I learned, in researching it. The STEM race will not leave the “A” in STEAM behind. In fact, it seems, the “A” in STEAM will be the heART of STEM.

Just for Fun:

I have found my oasis in a small town in upstate New York.

Population: less than 500. Independent bookstores: 5. 

Can you guess? If you know the place I mean, leave a comment below.

If you spend all your money on books, and if there’s any left over you’ll buy food and clothes – tune in next Friday to learn more.

In the meantime, please check out my  new Writing in the Fast Lane FB page.
