    Open, an autobiography by Andre Agassi. Half-way through it and really enjoying it. And I’m not even a tennis fan.

    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.

    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

    Just read:
    -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.

    Currently reading:
    -The Diamond Age by Stephenson
    -The Tombs of Atuan by Ursula
    Le Guin
    -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.
