The Spaces Between

April 11th, 2009

I finished Blink tonight and now have an infinite number of choices as to what to read next. Or I can just choose from the dozen or so books that I have ordered but have yet to read. I like these moments, and I usually jump into the next book and get it started. Usually I avoid a gap in reading. So far this year, I’ve started a book literally moments after finishing another. Even if it’s just a chapter or two, I’ll get started on it.

What I think I’ll do now is just make this blog post and go to bed without having a book to read. I’ll choose something tomorrow.

Blink, Book Thoughts, Malcolm Gladwell

The Mind’s Eye, Book #14

April 6th, 2009

I also started and finished Henri Cartier-Bresson’s The Mind’s Eye yesterday. It was a short book at 105 pages. But it was brilliant and unpretentious and very candid. And I really enjoyed it. You don’t learn much about Bresson himself, as it seems through the book that he doesn’t particularly like talking about himself. But he loves talking about photography, and love, and friends, and that was very enjoyable to read.

Now I’ve chosen Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink, which I’ve already started.

We’re through Q1 and I’m holding a very good pace.

Blink, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Malcolm Gladwell, The Minds Eye
