What a pleasant surprise to find. I was just coming to cancel my subscription that renews each month on the first. Today is May 26.

This book looks interesting.


While reading The Wall Street Journal today, I came across a review for a new book. It’s interesting and I’ll consider buying it. Perhaps this would make for a great listen. It’s not clear if it’s available on Audible.

With so many people willing to participate in large, networked endeavors, maybe we really are on the cusp of finding new ways to fund and perform scientific research.

Just stumbled upon a review by Pam. Saw a different book reviewed by her. She wrote succinctly and other reviewers liked her style too. I decided to see more of her reviews. The block quote above from her review reminds me of the book Wikinomics. I haven’t read it yet but my understanding is that it is about bringing diverse and perhaps unorganized people together with digital technologies to work on and solve problems.

I like books narrated by Walter Dixon. While checking his catalog of narrated books I came upon the book American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America on Audible which is where is saw a review by Pam.

Notes: Added both Reinventing Discover and American Nations to my Audible Wish List.

The above image shows my listening pattern for audio programming, mostly books, listened to in the Audible app.

As I recall from previous summers, listening time is greatly reduced. During the summer there is much more ongoing interaction with the people I work with making audio programming harder to consume. My expectation is that come September, when I resume mostly working alone, the time I spend with audio programming will return to around 30 hours a month.

A new book by Mitch Joel, Ctrl Alt Delete, was featured in book email. Looked on Amazon first, saw there was an Audible version. One credit used to buy it on the spot.
