What Are You Reading?

I just read an article in the Puget Sound Business Journal stating that Amazon said it sold more Kindle books than the “old-fashioned” hard cover books.  Read story

What’s your take on this?

Mine is two-fold…

1 – I hope we aren’t seeing the demise of the hard cover book. I’ve seen the Kindle and it’s pretty cool I must admit. However, there is still something special about having a hard cover book in your hands reading. I don’t think that will ever change for me.

2 – I hope this means more people are reading and that young people will keep reading after school. We as a society need to keep reading a variety of subjects in order to maintain and advance our knowledge and being considered “well-rounded.”

I encourage you to read often. My goal is one book a month minimum. Right now, I’m on two books.  One is religious in nature and the other is fiction. I have the next two picked out already – political science and self-development.

What are you reading?

  1. Hi Dan,

    Great points Dan. I spent the last year reading textbooks, so I’m trying to weave in more recreational reading in 2010. Currently I’m reading “The Great Book of Seattle Sports Lists” by Mike Gastineau, Art Thiel, and Steve Rudman; and “The Book of Basketball” by The Sports Guy, Bill Simmons, which I had autographed at his book signing in Seattle. Just thought I would brag about that!

  2. I’ve been meaning to pick up the Seattle Sports lists book. I’m also a fan of Bill Simmons. Let me know how you like them!
