My Top Books in 2023

My Top Books in 2023

I'm looking forward to surpassing my goal of reading 50 books again for the Goodreads 2023 Reading Challenge!

This year I've had a large number of books I gave 5 stars, so I took extra time to enjoy them.

For many years I gave myself the excuse that I didn't have the time to sit down and read, and barely read 1 book a year. So how did I do it?

Well listening to audiobooks while driving or training for sports to stay in shape definitely helps. Luckily books in Amazon Kindle format can also be read by Echo devices and even using the Alexa app.

My top books by category read in 2023 were:

Data & AI

• Power and Prediction

• The Signal and The Noise


• Chip War

• Build: An Unorthodox Guide to Making Things Worth Making

• Sandworm


• Motivational Legends


• Transcend (currently reading)


• Money: The True Story of a Made Up Thing (currently reading)

• The Great Mortality

• How to Hide an Empire: A History of the Greater United States

Financial Independence

• Lower Your Taxes Big Time

You can see my favorite books from other years, including my all-time favorites at

I'm looking forward to reading another 50 books for this coming year, and you may find many of your favorites available at your local library.

If you don't already have devices to help check out the Kindle, and you can spread out multiple Echo Dots around the house to read to you when you are not using headphones.

And don't stop there! You can also find a lot of great courses online such as through your library.
