Moving right along...

just finished The Human Chord. Blackwood seems to take forever to get where he's going, but the idea of sounds having an effect on matter was intriguing.

So next up is The Tipping Point.

Messianic Legacy..


now reading a few Ambrose Bierce short stories before moving on to Outliers.

Sunday Update: Finished Outliers tonight. very interesting reading. plenty of others have written more intelligent blurbs than I could. mostly I think I should have practiced more. ;D

Finished Jimbo

which was kinda good even though it was a bit predictable. Started The Messianic Legacy which so far, is not so convincing as Holy Blood, Holy Grail. They're relying too much on "this has been mistranslated" probably. and no mysteriously appearing sources at the library.

Also, totally unrelated, I bought some more Thorlos today so I'll have some every day instead of one day a week. Hopefully that will help my scary looking feet.

Park was still mostly under water today so we took the rain route, as I like to call it. It's not as far as walking the park, but it will do.

UPDATE: added The Red Menace to the pile.

new year...

new pile o' books on the nightstand. Can't believe I finally cleared it out last year.Link

Gonna try to keep better track of what I read this year. so to start... finished a collection of H.P. Lovecraft and moved on to Denise's Daily Dozen, which I probably won't follow. Then read Freakonomics, interesting but hard to explain, mostly just a bunch of random factoids. and most recent was Black Beetles in Amber by Ambrose Bierce.

currently reading Jimbo by Algernon Blackwood. (the lovecraft collection gave me some leads on other stuff to read... this and the Bierce being a couple of them.)

added to the pile today.... Blink, The Tipping Point, What the Dog Saw, The Help, and This is Your Brain on Music.

So I guess we'll see if I keep reading this year.

Oh I forgot One Hundred Years of Solitude no link cause it sucked. ;D
