rebar3 shell

2016 01 05 rebar3 shell It took me a long time to write this article.

Book Dust Jackets

I’ve been a digital reader most of my adult life but for the past year I’ve been trying to reduce my screen time and started buying real books.

Just 20 Pages- A Goal To Read More

For the past two years, I’ve made the same new years goal, read more books. Both years I’ve failed.

I started in 2014 to keep lists of everything I consume. I've continued this effort throughout 2015 and can now share the items I particularly enjoyed. In 2015, I read 16 books and 3 papers, watched 3 movies and 4 shows, listened to 1 audio book and no podcasts. A lot less TV compared to 2014, but most of that time …

2015 on

The start of a new year is a milestone that makes many of us stop and look forward. What 2016 has in store for us? The next 12 months give us an opportunity to grow and empty page to fill.
