Checking In

April 14, 2008

Well, yesterday I turned 40.
I suppose my advanced age could excuse the lamentable lack of my posting?
Eh, didn’t think so.
More later. Maybe.


John’s Reading Report (March 2008)

April 1, 2008

Over the past month I have finished:
Flashman, George MacDonald Fraser. Not sure I’ve made up my mind whether I liked this or not. It was a fairly easy read.
The Forever War, Joe Haldeman. An interesting contrast to Heinlein’s Starship Troopers or John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War.
In progress:
Virtual Light, William Gibson. I have neglected Gibson for the last 15 years or so. Time to catch up.
Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, Douglas R. Hofstadter.
Consciousness Explained, Daniel C. Dennett.
On deck:
Suite Francaise, Irene Nemerovsky.
Soul Made Flesh: The Discovery of the Brain–and How it Changed the World, Carl Zimmer.
Idoru, William Gibson.
Spook Country, William Gibson.
