Getting Informed
My career has been nomadic and travel intensive since the late 1990s. As such, relocations have meant my collection of stuff has downsized considerably over the years.
Books take up space, so the majority of my reading material has been web content and countless PDFs. Also, one way I’ve kept the bulk from books to a minimum is by only borrowing or buying in a ring buffer style while donating after reading to keep shelf size constant.

Reflecting back on the past 26 months, if there is a silver lining to the pandemic cloud, it has been my renewed appreciation of actual books. Indeed, a good page turner has proven more valuable now that reading a PDF or website from a chair in the sky is less common for me.
Recent titles that caught my eye come from the “Deep Web” and my newsletter reading. Armed with these new (to me) titles, I began buying gently used copies via ThirftBooks (referral link) and now I’m sharing my recent ring buffer bookshelf additions for the Summer.
