Just finished Pump Six. If you're into Sci Fi, dystopian future stuff it's a definitely worthwhile collection of short stories. Some of which tie into his novel The Windup Girl.

At 60% with Moby ******. The author's obsession with whales is worse than Ahab's.



Dystopian- Does it take place in modern day Baltimore or DC?

Amongst My Enemies- William F Brown.

Reads like beginner Tom Clancy, but a good story told reasonably well.

My Mom and Dad gave me a beautiful leather bound Bible for Christmas.

I have never read the Bible from cover to cover. I decided to do so by this Christmas and have it blessed by the Bishop of our Diocese this Christmas Mass, after I've finished.

Some nights I read several pages others only a couple. I'm about through with The Gospel of John,,,
I've really enjoyed it,,,

Just finished re-reading the first two books of The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss. The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear. I finished reading them and immediately went back to the beginning again, they're THAT good.

Moving on now to Turing's Cathedral: The Origins of the Digital Universe by George Dyson. I tried to start this one a few months ago, and found it a little bit technical, but I'm determined to get into it. Alan Turing was the genius behind Bletchley Park's cracking of the Enigma encoding used by the Nazis during WWII. I've heard the statement several times that Turing was responsible for the end of the war coming two years sooner than would have been otherwise possible. Turing was the first to conceive of the machines from which our modern computers descended.

The final book in The Wheel of Time series called A Memory of Light will be released on Jan 8th. So I'm going to go back again and start from the beginning and by the time Jan 8th rolls around I should be ready for it or just a book behind. Every time a new book comes out in the series I start over from the beginning. There are so many characters and different story lines that intertwine. The first book in the series was released in 1990 and now just finally they are putting out the last book. Fourteen books total in the series and each book is around 800 - 1200 pages. The Author Robert Jordan died in 2007 and never got to finish the books. Luckily he knew he was sick and made sure he wrote the climax and ending to it all before he passed and then made tons and tons of notes and suggestions for the Author his wife picked to finish the series. Brandon Sanderson is the author finishing the series. It's an amazing series of books and hugely popular. If anyone likes epic fantasy this series is a must read.

Perfection Unleashed and Damned were middle of the road boring.
Still reading Contortionists Handbook, and now reading the Wool Omnibus (both are excellent so far).

Try A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith next. I think every girl in the the world should have to read this. My daughter is reading it now at age 12 and I'd like her to read it again when she's older and her perspectives have changed.

or The Count of Monte Cristo By Alexander Dumas My favorite book of all time. You don't know what revenge is until you've read this book. God himself read this book and was like God Damn......!

Also read a Connecticut Yankee in the court of King Arthur by Mark Twain. If any of you can say at one time or another you didn't think about going back in time and what knowledge you'd take with you....

Bypass Bob told me to read that just a couple weeks ago. I told him how I wanted to read a classic a year ago and never did. He said it is one of the best books he has ever read. But you will read way too fast for us to discuss it.

Oh man, I'm gonna see if I can get World War Z on my kindle.

I'm reading a CA from June 2002, article and interview with Ollie North. I found a local that sells bundles of 4 CAs from around that time for 5 bucks.

About two thirds in. My usual drive to get things moving and driving results had to be slowed in order to set the scene. Haven't read anything like this.

A classic a year is nice idea. Think I'll try that too.
