Happy New Year!
2018 was a very busy year, as I got full force into angel investing and then into Epirus, my latest startup adventure. Nevertheless, I managed to ramp up my reading a bit, which I'm proud of. I think two factors contributed the most to that. First, I finally managed to get out of the house a bit more, which meant more driving and walking (and thus more time to listen to audiobooks). Second, I scaled down the number of podcasts I subscribe to, which allowed more room for reading.
I completed 31 books last year, which is still low for what I'm used to but 34% better than 2017. I hope in 2019 I can bring that number up again. The books I read in 2018 were still heavily concentrated in the baby/parenting arena because that's still a major focus of my life right now, though I did manage to include some other fiction, nonfiction, and magic in there. I also caught up on a lot of the "extra" Harry Potter books (like Fantastic Beasts) in anticipation of the new movie that came out. I want to also aim for more diversity of books in 2019.
