The "book-a-week" resolution. Suggestions please!

Well - let's give one more shot to reviving the blog. :-)
The usual - work craziness and now the dude in the picture - have meant that I've been neglecting the blog even longer than usual. I'm hoping to fix that.

Three months into the year, I've failed miserably at one of the resolutions I was hoping to keep - to read many more books. So I'm trying the public declaration trick. I'm hoping sharing the resolution will add some pressure on me to keep it. I want to read a book a week going forward for the rest of the year.

A 50-ish books/year lets me plan for reading a lot of both fiction and non-fiction, and take a bunch of chances i.e. read some books that may not be generally reviewed well but I think I'm likely to find interesting. I started this week with Ben Horowitz's  The Hard Thing about Hard Things. I'm a quarter of the way through - so far its pretty good.

If you have suggestions for other books I should look at for the rest of the year let me know.
