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.
"Poirot and Me" by David Suchet.
test papers about whales.
I'm reading The Selection series by Kiera Cass. I'm on Book 2, The Elite. The One is scheduled to be released in May.
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 am starting Away Down South: A History of Southern Identity by James C. Cobb.
The Winnipeg Sun.
Lovecraft: A Biography by L. Sprague de Camp
The Book of General Ignorance: Everything You Think You Know Is Wrong, by John Lloyd and John Hitchinson.
I LOVE this stuff.
I'm reading The Birthmarked Series by Caragh M. O'Brien. I'm almost finished with the first book, Birthmarked.
That book was actually written by a guy named Lloyd Johnson.
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.
I'm reading Prized, Book 2 of the Birthmarked Series.
I am starting Jane Jacob's The Economy of Cities.
"Oh Myyy! There Goes the Internet" - George Takei
Dune by Frank Herbert.
