Just got cracked open Star Wars X-Wing: Mercy Kill. Last book in the series was published 13 years ago. Hopefully this book will be worth the wait.

Against the Day by Thomas Pynchon said:
"Lew sure had a long day. Nate Privett was one of these desk operatives with an irrational belief that somewhere in the endless heaps of subpoenaed account books, itineraries, operating logs, and so forth, shining out sudden as a vision, answers would just reveal themselves, Heaven forfend anybody should actually have to saddle up and get out there and into country a little more twilit."


Goddamn, buddy can write.

My mom gave me "Fated" by Benedict Jacka. It's very Dresden-esque, and he even has a little reference to Dresden that made me squee with fangirl delight.

Dresden, as in Harry Dresden? If so I think I may need to check out that book.

I just finished the "The Omen Machine" by Terry Goodkind. It is the first book in a series that follows after "The Sword of Truth" series. It was incredibly good.

Gonna finish The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson today. I really love his writing style, and I get sad every day that he died before this trilogy was published. He reminds me of a grittier Murakami.

I just got Robert K. Massie's biography of Catherine the Great for my Kindle (checked out from my local library - love that feature) and it's really hard to put down. Russian history in general is interesting, but 18th century Russian history is baller.

YES YES YES. That is how I've read most of my books this year. Love being able to just download from the library.

Moon Walking with Einstein. It's more or less a narrative about how a journalist went from a curious look into memory competitions to competing in one himself through training, and it briefly touches on the role of memory in the modern era where we have "external memories" in the form of digital data.

Reading Level 7 by Mordecai Roshwald again since my dad found me a copy of it. It's been one of my favorites since I was 10 or so, and is the reason I love Post-poc so much.

I read the Shades of Grey books because I want to make sure my hate and displeasure are warranted. They are. One Hundred Percent.
I feel like Michael Bluth opening the bag that says 'Dead Dove- Do not eat' because, honestly, what did I expect?
The saddest part?
I got them on my kindle and I can't just pick them up and leave them places. I have to delete them off the device without thrusting them upon some unsuspecting person.

I'm currently going through a bunch of Lovecraft's stories in chronological order. Thankfully most of them are free to read online.

Finished Moonwalking, just started The Art of Memory by Frances Yates, the book I had originally tried to rent from the library but was gone and so I picked up Moonwalking instead. Moonwalking was hilarious and the giant nerds of the competitive memory circuit sound hysterical. I've already started building my own Mind Palace and it's just incredible how easily and quickly the basic concepts are applicable. It takes real training to memorize anything complicated, but I've already memorized a shopping list and a list of words I meant to look up the exact definitions to later..... really cool.
