I'm enjoying it so far (1/2 way through it).
Open, an autobiography by Andre Agassi. Half-way through it and really enjoying it. And I’m not even a tennis fan.
Lessons from Lucy - Dave Barry's dog.
Previous - M*A*S*H by Richard Hooker
Current - Getting Life by Michael Morton
Skunk Works is awesome, one of my favorite books. I have the feeling I would have very much liked Kelly Johnson, but I'm not sure he would have liked me.
The Moose Jaw by Mike Delany; adventure in the Alaskan wilderness.
Beg your pardon sir?! How dare you! Seven eves was one of my last reads and I loved it. He can do no wrong, sarting with snowcrash ( studied it in college) to Reamde (loved that one too).
Read this one too and liked it, even if his Democrat was showing abit much.
a book on the dark ages which as it turns out weren't so dark
early medieval Europe from 300 to 1000

Are you reading the latter in German?
Recently finished: Daring Greatly by Brene Brown and Grist for the Mill by Ram Daas.
Just bought Educated by Tara Westover.
No, I'm afraid my German is on the level of menus and timetables. I couldn't read that. But it was the only translation into one of the major languages I could readily find
-Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James: a wonderful weaving of African folklore, mythology, and fantasy into an incredible postmodern tale.
-Seven Nights by Jorge Luis Borges: fascinating lectures on some of his favorite subjects, from The Divine Comedy to his own experience with blindness. Brilliant as always.
-The Diamond Age by Stephenson
-The Tombs of Atuan by Ursula
-Getting back into the Malazan books with an audio version of Deadhouse Gates
I just finished Oathbringer... ********! I've just started The name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, I think I'm going to have to double back and do Mistborn at some point.
I just started What Made Maddy Run.
It’s about Madison Holleran, the college freshman athlete who committed suicide by jumping off a parking garage
My wife brought home a few books she was given. I have not read this since Junior High. Amazing how well it has held up and relates to things going on in society today.
