I went to Chapters and bought a book off Amazon.com yesterday – oh the irony. Mobile shopping is officially taking over, even for an online shopping laggard like me.
I bought 3 books in total and the only 1 I bought in store from Chapters was one that wasn’t available on the Kindle store (come’on Kindle!) Here are the 3 I picked up and are hoping will be good reads:
- Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder – Nassim Taleb (Kindle)
- Dollars and Sex: How Economics Influence Sex and Love – Marina Adshade (Kindle)
- What You Gonna Do With That Duck – Seth Godin (in-store)
With the proliferation of blog posts where readers consume our thoughts in short blurbs, it seems like rarely is anyone investing the time to read a full book. It’s a sad reality, since I have seen writing skills deteriorate with my students (I do some teaching at a university).
So go out, pick up a book and start reading!
