I am one of those people who likes to read many books at the same time. And thanks to the Kindle app on my iPad, I can. The latest book, I just finished reading: Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life by Lisa Chaney. Amazing woman and very Steve Jobs like in her approach to her profession.
Anyway here are five books I have stacked up on my nightstand and will reading them over next couple of weeks. I thought I would share them with you.
- The Charisma Myth by Oliva Fox Cabane.
- Beastly Things by Donna Leon
- Seventy nine short essays on design by Michael Bierut
- Digital Wars: Apple, Google, Microsoft & the Battle for the Internet by Charles Arthur.
- (Re-reading) The Victorian Internet by Tom Standage.

I never catch up. The corner table in the living room has my iPad, Harmony remote controlling everything from sound to video to Apple TV, CD jukebox and more. And the books I’m trying to complete:
Deng Xiaoping by EzraVogel
Post-American World, revised, updated by Fareed Zakaria
The Price of Civilization by Jeffrey Sachs
William Gibson’s last 2 books – embarrassing because I’m usually current with his fiction
Raptors of North America by Brian Wheeler – my favorite birds
Leo said you’re web site is beautiful. He was right.
You have a typo: “I am one of those people who likes to ready many books”. You went a “Y” too far 🙂
Yikes. Fixed and thank for spotting this.
So, what’s your approach? Do you read serially or in parallel?
BTW – The post’s title is also a little wonky: “Here is what’s I am reading these days” should be “Here is what I am reading these days.”
I read in parallel. I think the approach to reading is that I have for watching Netflix — something new every day.
You given us all some new finds in music in the past, Om. What are your latest finds?
Coming soon 🙂
Every title what i’m reading here is new to me. But i have interest in reading all these and may be little difficult to read everything. @om malik Bro, try to publish what yu learned from them, a short note may be worthable..
Absolutely 🙂 will do and even do mini reviews
