Plus, Kindle books I forgot I owned.
I have struggled with hard habits in my life. I have found these hard habits are only broken by harder habits. Nature abhors a vacuum, meaning I cannot just quit doing something in my life without replacing it with something else. When I am tearing down one habit in my life, I need to simultaneously be threading a new cord of habit. As the new cable becomes strengthened, it guides me, helps keep me making the right decision even in times when I do not want the right path. Intention becomes choice, choice becomes action, action becomes habit, habit becomes character.Unbroken: Meditations on Suffering in the Right Direction, Jason French
Ten Kindle Titles I Forgot I Owned
In the spirit of New Years’ resolutions and my particular goal to finish off Mount TBR but good, here are ten Kindle titles that I own but will probably ignore this year while prioritizing the physical pile.
ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror, Michael Weiss & Hassan Hassan
The Romance of Religion: Fighting for Goodness, Truth, and Beauty, Fr. Dwight Longenecker
The Story of the Jews, Vol I: Finding the Words. Simon Schama
Alienated America: Why Some Places Thrive While Others Collapse, Timothy Carney
Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things, Randy Frost
The Rise of Big Data Policing, Andrew Guthrie Ferguson
Breaking Bread with the Dead: A Reader’s Guide to a More Tranquil Mind, Alan Jacobs
A Brief History of Earth: Four Billion Years in Eight Chapters, Andrew Knoll
Frozen Hell: The Russo-Finnish Winter War, William Trotter
Europe: A Natural History, Tim Flannery
I have Schama’s book on my TBR and liked Flannery’s book.
Not surprised about Schama. I don’t imagine much ISN’T on your TBR. 😉
