I just finished Atomic Habits day before yesterday and now it is time for another. Actually, I picked up Man's Search for Meaning, book by Viktor Frankl. Read thru one-third of the book, it is interesting, both the author and the experiences he had. 

I would like to talk about what I read but I do not want to ruin the story if anyone hasn't read the book yet. From the preface and the title, one could tell the book is about finding meaning in life. I picked up this book partly because Amazon recommended this based on my previous purchases and partly because I wanted to know what the author has in store about life.

For me, I have a version of what life is. And in recent years, I have become more of a 'why' person and I couldn't help but pick this top-selling book of all time and gain some wisdom out of it.

I hope to complete the book in a few days considering the pace I was reading in the last two days. FYI, my reading pace depends on how interesting the book is. This book is really an old one, yet it was intriguing while reading about the author's experiences considering it is translated and has no chapters, indexes as the recent ones would have.

So, that's the current book I'm reading along with the Daily Stoic which is one-page a day read. And yes, I did not forget about Atomic Habits. It is an awesome book, I got a lot to share about it. My thoughts on that soon as promised.

    @aravindhb4 Wow I think we are vibrating on the same frequency as far as book choices. I started Man's Search for Meaning but have not finished it. I also recently purchased Atomic Habits and it's next up in the queue.
