I have just finished three excellent books Parallel Universes by Michio Kaku, Lord Valentines Castle by Silverberg and Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer.

I liked Parallel Universes so much that it has motivated me to start Quantum Physics for dummies.

Yesterday my copy of Jack Vance's Alastor omnibus has arrived so I am tempted to read it in parallel.

Before that I tried for the third time to read the Song of fire and ice saga, but I seem not to get it or love it so I stopped.

What are you reading lately?

I want to start reading Brandon Sanderson's Words of Radiance, but it's been so long since I've read Way of Kings that I'm currently working my way through the Tor.com reread of that one to refamiliarize myself with it.

I just finished Smallcreep's Day by Peter Currell Brown. Pretty relevant considering the political climate.

Before that I read The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. Also very relevant, but in a very different way from Smallcreep's Day.

I'm listing my recent three books because I I am still working on finishing them.

Emotional Intelligence 2.0 - impulse buy at airport
What Every Body Is Saying - book on reading body language
Darth Plagueis - a SW novel

Fun Fact: I have over an hour commute now, so I listen to a lot of TED Talks and YouTube videos about SW lore.

I'm rereading Game of Thrones. I glossed over a bunch of stuff the first read, and I'm really enjoying it, especially because I care about more of the minor characters.

I'm finally reading a Kurt Vonnegut collection. I had never really gotten around to him.

I have finished reading the book, The Tailor of Panama. The publishers did a great job publishing this kind of book. It's a book about Spy that's why I really enjoyed reading it.

I can see that. I read the first four books, but I bet if I went back and started again it would be a much different experience.
