Book notes is my (fresh! new!) weekly effort to track what I’m reading without the assistance of Goodreads. This is the first week.
These are the books I am actively reading. This week all reading has been 15-30 minutes right before sleeping on my Kindle.
Less actively reading
I’m always “reading” a dozen books, some of which I haven’t actually touched in months. These I’ve at least opened at some point in the last month.
I haven’t finished any books in the last week, so instead I’m listing the last two books I did finish.
I want to reread Ender’s Game for the first time in many years. Elon’s insistence that Twitter “authenticate all real humans” sparked the memory of how the internet equivalent in that world required some sort of access card. I have a copy from the library on my Kindle now, ready to go.
The Three-Body Problem, by Liu Cixin, is next up for book club. I also have a copy of this from the library now.

These are books I’ve run into over the last week and added to some sort of “to one day read” list that is ever grown and will never shrink.
