Growing up, between the ages of 12-40, I read close to 400 science fiction books and still have most of them in boxes up in the attic. I was still buying 15-20 new sci-fi books every year right up until 2007; however, at some point within the past decade I lost interest in sci-fi because I didn’t feel like I was learning anything. I even started feeling guilty when reading sci-fi. A nagging impulse which eventually took hold was that I should be doing something more to expand my mind, learn new skills and generally improve myself.
According to my logs, I read fifteen sci-fi books in 2007, and only seven in 2008. By 2009, I had fully transitioned to reading non-fiction, with a focus on books that would help improve my productivity, improve my outlook on life, and increase understanding of my place in the universe. It seems at that point in my life, just after turning 40, I was ready to allow an avalanche of life-improvement wisdom into my consciousness… and I am extremely pleased with the results! If you aren’t spending any time reading, then you are potentially ignoring one of the greatest resources to help make your life better.
By the way, modern science and philosophy are at a cross-roads where the paths of these disciplines are converging. And that’s good news for the future of Humanity.
Here are the books I intend to read significant portions of in 2017.
