    I'm now back to the original Bond books, reading them in the Griswold/Chancellor Chronology. Not sure where the three continuations (of the original series) books go.

    I'm all over the place right now. I'm in various stages of: The Hunger Games, The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson, The Pin Drop Principle for work, and The Striker by Clive Cussler. I also just ordered The Androids Dream by Jon Scalzi, and a book on baseball statistics from Amazon.

    Well, I finished Letters From the Earth, and it just reminds me how much I miss adept literary luminaries like Mark Twain. We've had humorists since, who have been exemplary (such as Wil Rogers), but Twain was one of a kind, I think.

    Anyhoo, continuing on through the much neglected "Classics" section of my Kindle library, I've just started on Essays and Lectures by Oscar Wilde.

    I forgot to comment earlier; this is one of my all-time favorite books. I read it in high school and it made a big impact on me.

    I finished Zoo Quest for a Dragon by David Attenborough which tells of his travels to Indonesia back in the 1950s in search of the Komodo Dragon.

    I have started The Martian by Andy Weir. Good so far.
