    First: Great goal! I hope you hit your goal. That said…

    Second: If you haven't built reading time into your regular schedule, you might find reading almost a book a week a bit ambitious. If you have and you can read that much: awesome! Personally I'd love to read that many books but life gets in the way. My goal this year is 24 books.

    Third: +1 for fiction writing. Writing which stirs the imagination can help feed your creativity.

    Here are some books I've enjoyed recently (fiction, and non-fiction):

    • Blue Remembered Earth, Alastair Reynolds
    • House of Suns, Alastair Reynolds
    • A Tree Grows In Brooklyn, Betty Smith
    • Frame Innovation, Kees Dorst
    • Design for Dasein: Understanding the Design of Experience Design, Thomas Wendt
    • Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien
    • Creativity Inc, Ed Catmull
    • Replay, Ken Grimwood
    • East of Eden, John Steinbeck
    • The Yearling, Marjorie Rawlings
