Books!

In the past few months, I’ve rediscovered my love of reading as a form of learning and stretching of my mind and spirit, but also for entertainment purposes. In the near future, I will start posting some reactions to the book I just finished, “The Tipping Point” by Malcolm Gladwell. I certainly recommend it for people who are interested in social constructs and gaining a better understanding of why certain cultural and social waves go a a particular way, this book is a must read.

Other books currently in queue to be read, in no particular order:

  • In Pursuit of Silence by George Prochnik
  • The Hunger Games (Book 1) by Suzanne Collins
  • The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook by Ben Mezrich
  • Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman (re-reading for the 3rd or 4th time)
  • Fatherless Generation by John Sowers

What is on  your reading list? And maybe more importantly, why?

    A reread of A Game of Thrones (Book 1 in A Song of Ice and Fire) by George R.R. Martin in preparation for the HBO series adaptation starting tonight and the fifth book in the series coming this summer. Of course, I will take any excuse to reread A Song of Ice and Fire so the real reason for reading them is purely entertainment.

    I also picked up the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher thanks to a going out of business sale at the local Borders, so Furies of Calderon (Book 1) is on the short list for next to be started.
