Book notes

Reading

These are the books I am actively reading.

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.

Recently finished

This week I actually spent some focused reading time on Saturday and Sunday mornings. That helped clear out the last third of Ender pretty quickly.

I reread Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Wells, for the first time in probably 20 years. I remember thinking at the time that it was a book I should reread every 10 or 20 years to see how my perspective changed or whether there were new lessons to be learned.

Overall, I enjoyed the book and found the focus on the power of empathy to be interesting. The disinformation campaigns run on the nets were very prescient.

I did start to think about a third of the way in that this wasn’t a book I needed to reread every 10 or 20 years. There are plenty of other books out there. 🙂

On deck

The Three-Body Problem, by Liu Cixin, is next up for book club. I have a copy of this from the library on my Kindle now.

The Storyteller, by Dave Grohl, and Hamlet are now on the nightstand.

Added to the long list

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 growing and will never shrink.
