Still reading Heaven and Hell by Aldous Huxley.
Why do I take so long finishing a book I'm thoroughly enjoying?! I don't know anyone like me when it comes to book...it's such a short book too...I mean, it's not even a proper book! I just stop for a pause...go do other things...and then after a month I still haven't picked it up again. Wtf.

I'm reading Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson right now. If you're at all into code-breaking (cryptanalysis), this is just a gem. Hilarious too.
Someone tell me why the Kindle version is more than the Mass-Market Paperback? WTH?

The Human Factor: Inside the CIA's Dysfunctional Intelligence Culture
Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.

Today I will start with the third "real" book of the Witcher Saga from Andrzej Sapkowski. Don't know the English title because the book wasn't translated yet into English, but in German it is called Feuertaufe and in Polish Chrzest ognia. After I finished it the fourth book comes :P (Der Schwalbenturm / Wieża Jaskółki)

A Psychology textbook entitled The Developing Person. Hey, I have kids...gotta brush up on their functioning.What is normal to one, is incomprehensible to another.
ALL anger in this world stems from a lack of control.
All of reality bows to the illusion of life and death.

The Patron Saint of the Internet
I'm reading a new book by the patron saint of the internet, Marshall McLuhan. It's called, "From Cliche to Archetype".
I'm reading it in our National Library, a beautiful Grecian building on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin. But I don't understand it. Nonetheless I love it.
And they tell me the best way to understand something new is to try to explain it to someone else. And you're it. Soon I will try to explain it to you and you too won't be able to understand it.
But it's no good complaining to me. You understand everything else that is written here, so why not have something you don't understand?
Surely having something you don't understand is better than something you do understand.
And as I delve into the cliches and archetypes, I will take the occasional break and sidle over to the computer, and tell you all about it.
