I’m a reading addict. I literally just got a new book today and finished it in one sitting. ( I’m going to try out David Larson’s techniques and maybe make a post reviewing whether I think they work for undergrads!)
Books I want to read:
Mountains beyond Mountains – By Paul Farmer founder of the medical humanitarian organization Partners in Health, human rights activist and Harvard medical school professor. He began a public health non-profit while in medical school. He is the epitome of “let’s put saving lives and making a difference to the world first”. #idol #goals
When Breath Becomes Air – a new father/young neurosurgeon faces cancer and questions what is the meaning of life. (and he passed away while writing this book 🙁 )
Go back to the library to retrieve Oliver Sack’s “The Mind’s Eye” that I never finished!
ALL the Atul Gawande – I liked both Complications and the Checklist Manifesto.
Try a Abraham Verghese.
Re-read Basho’s haikus.
That book of Chinese poetry that’s been sitting on my shelf for a while now…
Russian literature? I’m going to see the play Onegin on Sunday and realized that I haven’t read much Russian literature. I tried Anna Kareina in the past but put it down. Time to try again?
EMMA – Why haven’t I read Emma yet??
What’s on your reading list?
