    With the 4th of July passing, I figured I was due for a more in-depth look at the political, philosophical, or military aspects of the American Revolution. This book: 700 pages long and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Just started it today.





    When Kurt Vonnegut died, I read in one of his obits that he had referred to this novel as "The Great Gatsby of my generation." I figured, good enough for Vonnegut, good enough for me. Sure enough, great book--one of the best novels I've ever read.

    Here are some of the few books that I have finished recently.

    Stanger In A Strange Land by Robert Heinlein
    Un Lun Dun by China Mievillle
    I Robot by Isaac Asimov
    The Thing at the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories by H.P Lovecraft
    The Blow-Up and Other Stories by Julio Cortrazar
    Daughter of Hounds by Caitlin R. Kiernan
    The Road by Cormac McCarthy

    I am currently reading The Violent Bear it Away by Flannery O’Connor.

    I am semi convinced that I am reading too much. :nanana:

    I became a reader after college. I guess I missed the mental stimulation.

    I think that am reading more now that when I was in college. Lol! It’s hard to read a lot in college with all of that drinking.

    I've become such a slow reader since getting out of college. It was all that intense reading, and always looking to get every last drop out of the material, and being analytical. I can't just read through something without going over everything a bunch of times to make sure I really got it. Kind of a pain in the ass, but it's ingrained now.
