Finished last night:
It's been a while since I posted so I'll run through what I read.
Get Off Your BUT
I really enjoyed it and it makes you think about all the ways we self sabotage ourselves.
after that started on Catch-22 and just couldn't read it. I don't know what it was I just couldn't get into it and had to stop reading it. First book in a long time that I didn't finish.
then read I Suck at Girls
then Fight Club
then Kill Kill Faster Faster
Don't let the title fool you, it may not be what you think.
and now started on Excelsior!
I may have forgot one in there but I don't think so
I am reading this for maybe the fourth time. It is a fantastic alternate history of the British Empire relocated to India after a comet hits the earth in 1878. The book starts in that world in 2025. S. M. Stirling is a master of fleshed out worlds and compelling characters. The book has some amazing action scenes and at times it seems non-stop.

The Hobbit (again)
and Year Zero (pretty funny)
I have almost picked the first book up for my Kindle just to say that I have read it. It it near the polar opposite of the sort of genres I like to read, but they are so damn popular some part of me wants to know what is going on.
Although I do a lot of my reading at the fire station while I am on shift, and I could NEVER be caught reading such a book up there.
Finished this... superrrr boring. It was required reading. The entire book is nothing but original documents which are documents from whatever time period.
Such thrilling topics like:
Ignatius Loyola, Spiritual Exercises, 1520
Wang Yangming, Questions on the Great Learning, 1527
Moses Cordovero, The Palm Tree of Deborah, 1560's
And so on until you commit suicide.
