You might have noticed that it has been awfully quiet around here. I have found myself reading more books than the Internet these days — and as a result, I didn’t have much to share. A good habit I picked up during the pandemic — after watching Max Joseph’s video on reading — is that I read 45 pages of a book (at the very least) every day. Sometimes, I keep reading the book because it is engaging. For instance, I am currently reading — Lying for Money: How Legendary Frauds Reveal the Workings of the World by Dan Davies.
I read books as an escape from the inanity of what is published online as serious journalism. On the other hand, nothing satisfies like non-serious journalism. Like someone asking the question: what is a mullet? In case you were wondering, why did I bring up the mullet? Well, apparently, it is the byproduct of the pandemic. For someone who prefers the buzz, I have never contemplated the mullet. And even if I did, I wouldn’t want to be seen in public supporting the mullet. Not that there is anything wrong with it.
