I just started re-reading Stephen King's Under The Dome.

I had started reading it a few months ago, but had a rather serious situation come up and stopped about halfway through.

I must say, reading this book has re-invigorated my love for books in general, funny as that may sound. When I was younger, I'd read ANYTHING, Stephen King, R. L. Stine, Voltaire, Encyclopedias. Then I just stopped, as life got busy, and my commitments to work, school, church & family took away most of my free time.

But thanks to technology, I've found myself attached to my Nexus Tablet, reading, reading, reading....

Thats funny how under the dome gave you a stronger affinity for reading, when I finished 11/22/63 for a second time just recently I couldn't help think how amasing this novel was. It was so well thought out and planned it was hard to out down.
Atonement audio book is what Im reading now, I know the movie of course but books are always better.

Default Geography and geo-politics


Robert D. Kaplan likes to believe that his analyses of global affairs is rooted in a hard-headed realism: history is empire; demography must impact the future; environmental stresses will ignite conflict. His latest work, The Revenge of Geography, emphasizes the interconnection that land masses have with each other and with historical development. As always with Kaplan, it's a bit of a slog, but nonetheless quite enlightening.

I've read several of his books, and quite frankly, I've always found Kaplan more than a little portentous. Some of his prose makes me roll my eyes. However, he states that he is not a geographic determinist, and he that he favours the liberal vision of Isaiah Berlin, who is, by the way, my avatar.

Honestly, this is not my preferred reading material, but tonight I finished The Twelve, the second book of a post-apocalypse vampire trilogy thing. Whatever.

I read about 2 thirds of the first book (The Passage) and really struggled to WANT to continue reading. I enjoy the post-apocalyptic concept, but I just didn't care about the characters in this... At all. So, I just gave up after a while.

Default New Ian McErwan novel



I have to admit, this is the first Ian McEwan novel I've ever read. Just recently published, Sweet Tooth is the story of a young woman in early 1970s Britain who, after having an affair with a much older man, begins employment with MI5. I could go on, but I'll leave the novel's plot twists to you. I found it a little slight, and a little too clever by half. But at least entertaining.

I predict Carey Mulligan will be cast as the protagonist in the inevitable screen adaptation.

Default Race and class in London



I strongly disliked Zadie Smith's NW, an impressionistic novel involving several people who live, or come from, a poorer area of London. I could not understand why the characters felt the way they did. Really, what was everyone's problem? I couldn't wait to finish it.

For pleasure:

Boning up on my Realmslore for The Sundering. I'd never read The Avatar Crisis.


For class:

I'm actually surprised at how much I'm enjoying this as well. I'm only about 50 pages in, but it's certainly a gripping read. Much better than Night, which I could barely make myself slog through.

Default Only geeks will call this a good book



If the only reading you ever do is internet forums, except maybe for your reverence for Tolkien or some other such drivel I see posted here, then Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore is for you. It won't tax your imagination. You'll smile at the protagonist's endearment to a fantasy series. You'll eat up the descriptions of Google endeavours. You'll think you're learning something about the history of printing. But really, this book is strictly escapist fiction to while away a few days, but nothing more.

Just finishing up The Violinists Thumb by Sam Kean. Not as engaging as The Disappearing Spoon, but worth the pick up. Then onto Geography
