Re: What are you reading?

I just finished Anthem by Ayn Rand, which is a almost mythological story about a man who struggles to become conscious of himself and the power of his individuality despite growing up in a culture so suffocatingly communal and bureaucratic that even the word "I" has been obliterated. It gets a little preachy the last few pages, but man vs state stories are always winners for me; I enjoyed it even given my contempt for Rand's praise of selfishness.'

I am now alternating between Power, Inc and Global Weirdness, the latter making the case for and outlining possible consequences of climate change.
