Sometimes I can be a little slow on the uptake. Occasionally I’ve been known to skip books just because so many people told me to read it. I know, I’m kinda weird like that sometimes!
My Audible.com account will quickly show that I’m a big fan of biographies, business, and philosophy books. Those are pretty much my bread and butter. There are about a dozen that I have in my next listens list. With that being the case I usually hold off on adding fiction to the list.
For at least four years my buddy Brian has been on me about reading the book Ready Player One. He’s repeatedly told me how much I’d like the book and I’ve pretty much kept saying no just to be a pain in the butt. After a while a few other friends started telling me about it.
This past week I wanted something as a change of pace for my reading. I’d just wrapped up a couple of books for the next month’s trainings so I figured I’d give it a whirl and listen while I drive and walk.
I’m about a third of the way through and it’s AWESOME!!! Full of ’80s trivia and loaded with geek factoids galore, it’s amazing! It’s been non-stop entertaining and I’m pretty sure I’m going to have it done very quickly.
So today I’m thankful that I FINALLY took all of my friends’ advice and picked this book up. Guys, I won’t question your book choices again… probably 😉
