Ha, thanks, I just watched it on youtube. When I read the book, it reminded me a lot of "V for Vendetta". I think everyone should read it.

Currently reading Horseman by Mike Nicol and A History of Knowledge by Charles Van Doren

Horseman is nothing special. Basically a weak Blood Meridian ripoff. A History of Knowledge is an interesting "birds eye" view of several historically influential subjects that seem to have gone out of vogue in recent decades. My only complaint is that Van Doren clearly has a perspective and goes out of his way to interpret events and ideas for the reader in a way that reflect his own opinions.

I also just finished listening to Neuromancer by Willliam Gibson on audiobook (I clock a lot of time behind the wheel at work). I don't really dig on Sci-Fi very often so I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It was fantastic, actually.

Well, my bathroom book is Bill McKibben's Deep Economy. I'm also working slowly through Lewis Mumford's Technics and Civilization. All the rest is assigned, but often good.

I'm reading the Hunger Games trilogy for fun. Quick and entertaining.

I did just finish The Alchemy of Air. It was a terrrific book about the history of synthetically produced nitrogen in 1910 and on Germany, the history of world fertilizer and it's application in munitions.

A great non-fiction history, that reads almost like good fiction. Check it out.

I'll dork out further and say that I heard of the book by watching some climbing video, and I saw Alex Honnold reading it in a tent. ha ha!!

My younger sisters got the Hunger Games free from the editor online a year or two ago (I think?). They wouldn't shut up about how good it was, frankly I was surprised when they made a movie out of the trilogy.

I'm reading Vision of the Defeated (visión de los vencidos, in español), about how the indigenous peoples of Mexico perceived those oddly coloured, half man-half deer who arrived on clouds from across the sea, and brought about the apocalypse. I've enjoyed it since I never really delved into how the (remarkably civilized) aztecs must have felt living through what they surely thought was the end of days. The coincidence of a series of bad omens and the arrival of the spandiards is also pretty incredible (even if only a third of them actually happened).

Drawing from Observation by Brian Curtis

Turn left at the Trojan horse by Brad Herzog.

The prior was recommended to me by Happie and is an excellent textbook on drawing.

The latter was recommended to me by my grandmother who thinks my life is going nowhere.

Because I am an impatient fuck, I'm reading a song of ice and fire, since I can't wait for the next episode of game of thrones. It's excellent.

The Silmarillion

Proving to be a tough read due to the writing style.
