re: Which books are you reading right now? πŸ“š VIEW POST


I read voraciously, at least in some people's views.

My reading falls into 2 distinct categories lately:

  1. Sci-Fi / Fantasy, especially the latter; Seanan McGuire, Nnedi Okorafor, Tananarive Due, N.K. Jemisin, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, and a whole lot of others.
  2. Racism, oppression, books by authors of colour, Ta-nehesi Coates, Ijeoma Oluo, Toni Morrison, Yolo Akili, and lots more

But to take what is the point here, what books am I reading pertaining to my profession: practically none at this point. The last book on programming was actually a re-read of "The Pragmatic Programmer" which is still I book I felt I was writing in my head as I was reading it. I just finished "Close to the Machine" by Ellen Ullman, which was great, but wasn't insightful for me, since I'd pretty much met all the people she talked about in one form or another.


Reading outside our professions is important to become better at what we do. Thanks for sharing. πŸ˜€
