I love reading, maybe almost as much as traveling. I tend to approach it in a messy way though. I am often reading multiple books, switching when something comes in from the library or when I am trying to figure out a new concept at work or something like that. I have gotten into a bad habit lately of having the same two (partially read) books next to my bed, while a long line of new books sneak past them. In an effort to gain a little control back, I decided this weekend was a perfect opportunity to get caught up.
[If you are keeping track, I was supposed to go back to Joplin to volunteer, but after the last couple of weeks I really needed some personal time. I will be back in Joplin at some point soon.]
The books I finished this weekend:
|This book was actually not one of the lingers next to my bed, I’ll get to that one in a second. I picked this up a week ago and tore through it. This book painted a rather frightening picture of the future of water worldwide. Current corporate privatization of everything from rivers to underground aquifers to sucking water out of clouds were discussed in a very vivid and powerful way. The environmental impact of desalination plants and bottled water were also discussed. If you are interested in learning more about what future wars will be about, you should really check this out.|
The book I might have to give up on:
And finally, two books I am pretty excited to start reading:
|When Rivers Run Dry – Fred Pearce|
|Brilliant. Crazy. Cocky. – Sarah Lacy|
Thanks for checking in and let me know what you’re all reading too!
