Interesting Reading Areas

fireplace-reading-book

Most  end-of-the-year lists of books consists of books that have already been read by others and many of the lists consists of the same books. Often the lists consists of the books that have topped the sales lists during the year. The underlying message could be interpreted as “if you haven’t read these books, you are a cultural bar-bar, does not belong to the well informed elite and not able to go along in conversations”. Anyhow, this is passive, following main-stream media.

Another, more active approach is to make a list by your own about Interesting Reading Areas (IRA), areas of your interest for developing and knowledge acquiring. And then look for relevant writers, books and DVD’s belonging to that IRA.

We thought it would be nice to make a list of subjects or interesting areas for ourselves because we believe we would gain from such a list to help us preparing for the next parts of Thinkibiity – Thinking about Thinking, Creativity, Innovation and Design. Perhaps you may enjoy the list and will give some directions for reading about Thinkibility. If you can help us  to expand the list, please add a comment. Please note, we have not yet read the books!

But we invite you to make your own IRA en to find for each subject  the interesting books and thinkers.
