    12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, Jordan Peterson.

    A really good book but it was very dense and could be meandering at times. Found myself reading the same passages over and again. I wanted to give this to my teenager but I think it would be pretty impenetrable for him. This book really could have benefited from a more forceful editor. I hope there will be a young reader's version of it, because the info would be great for a kid.

    Read 'The Spiral War' series by Joel Shepherd while I was waiting for 'Tiamat's Wrath' to be released.

    I did complete 'Tiamat's Wrath' a few weeks ago. May very well be one of the best of The Expanse series. A bit different focus than the previous books. A couple of heart wrenching moments as well made for a really good read.

    I got Watership Down from my kids for birthday. It’s about rabbits, lol, but very serious in tone. There’s a Netflix mini series of the same name.

    When I don’t have anything that I’m reading seriously, I work on my 1200 page Sherlock Holmes book. I love it.

    Surface Detail - Iain M Banks. A re-read, because I enjoy his stuff immensely and there won't be any more. :(

    Next up: All the Discworld series. I hate fantasy with a passion bordering on pathological but I make an exception for these.

    Finishing Bedsit Disco Queen by Tracy Thorn (of Everything But The Girl.) It's an entertaining, well written overview of her career and her attitude toward "success."

    I'm surprised that you find Seveneves to be a mess. I enjoyed it; full of stimulating concepts. Now D.O.D.O., that was a mess. I'll certainly read The Fall. I trust you've read Reamde?

    Just finished Bob Taylor's book Guitar Lessons and recommend it for anyone that likes his guitars or is looking for a good business book.

    Just started James Patterson's latest The Cornwallis Are Gone. Based on the first few pages its probably going to be another page Turner.
