Focus Mode

I’m in the midst of a productive two weeks trying hard to avoid the little distractions that can drain my attention and energy. Looking at you, Youtube.

But one consequence is that I’m reading more — much more — and am trying hard to keep up with my practice of writing “book notes”: part review, part synopsis, and (sometimes) part personal essay.

Here are some recent ones, and you can find the rest linked from the Reading page:

Cover for the book "On the Hippie Trail from Istanbul to Kathmandu" by Rick Steves, featuring an old photo of an orange and white short bus in a desert area, loaded with passengers inside and on the roof, being stopped by an official in a beige uniform.
