What I'm reading...

I'm a fairly avid non-fiction reader. I used to religiously put my current books on Goodreads to share with my friends, but that got to be too time-consuming. So I'm going to attempt to put them here.

It's what I'm reading--probably without comment, good or bad. If something strikes me as especially wonderful or horrible I'll offer notes. But you can be fairly certain that if I brought it home to read it at least seemed like a good chance it would be thought-provoking. Feel free to ask if you want an opinion on a certain book.

  1. That is one broad swath of interests you have there Newfangled. I will be very interested in your thoughts about Running with the Mind of Meditation.

    1. Running with the Mind of Meditation I haven't gotten to yet, but I've thumbed through it. It's more from the spiritual perspective since he founded meditation centers. But he happens to be a runner so I'd call it more his thoughts on the relationship between the two...if that makes sense? It's not written from the running perspective about the mental aspects of the sport. Which, actually, is more what I'd be interested in. But it looked worth trying since it's up my alley.
