    i am a biased, shamless camus fanboy and the myth of sisyphus + the stranger are the two books that single handedly made me so.

    The stranger is an interesting narrative that encapsulates a lot of existential concepts camus is known for which is elaborated on in the other book i mentioned. once you start and when i'm sober i'd love to talk more about it!

    The Bones of You. Can't remember the author. It's not very memorable (details about the book I mean).

    Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle. It's good, and the MC might be an INFP.
    Beauty by Hubert & Kerascoët. Just started this.

    The Irresistible Novel by Jeff Gerke. Meh. It's average for a book on writing. I wouldn't recommend it.

    I finished reading it. At first I thought it was boring and stupid, but it got really interesting after part 2.

    Brain Maker by Dr. David Perlmutter, neurologist and author of Grain Brain.

    Really interesting stuff on the role of the gut in general health and mental health.

    Elective Cesarean delivery and formula are really bad for children.... They don't develop the proper gut microbes...

    Sugars in general and carbs are so bad.... The modern American diet is killing us and the pharmaceutical industry isn't the solution it would have us believe...

    Oh, and obesity isn't about willpower but having the wrong mix of bacteria in the gut.... And too much antibiotic use....

    Could it be that much of illness in America is related to our crappy diets and high fructose corn syrup?

    Interesting stuff.... need to do a radical change in the family menu.....

    Can't say I've read any of Jeff Gerke's novels, but his 'Plot versus Character' is really good and useful.

    As to what I am currently reading:



    'The Art of War' by Sun Tzu. Translation by Thomas Cleary.

    Really enjoy this book. A lot of that has to do with all the added commentary from ancient Chinese leaders, and their own interpretations of Sun Tzu's statements.



    'Herding Dogs: Progressive Training' by Vergil S. Holland

    A Christmas present from a close friend. Very useful as far as I've seen. Hopefully, it will come to use one day. (:



    'The Darkness That Comes Before' by R. Scott Bakker

    Bought this book because I was looking for really, really dark Fantasy, but I am not far enough in yet to determine whether or not it is dark enough. Anyone read it? Thoughts?

    Fastest Things on Wings: Rescuing Hummingbirds in Hollywood. Very fascinating account of a hummingbird rescuer in Hollywood. Did you know that hummingbirds will stab other hummingbirds through their hearts to defend turf or that you have to change the sugar water in the feeder every 3 days? If you like those little birds, you'll love this book.
    Finally, the cgi smurfs look like the cartoon smurfs - 'bout smurfin' time.

    Currently -- The Waves, Virginia Woolf. So far her writing has bewitched me. I also finished Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet and Rigg's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, I highly recommend both. Wonderfully written.

    Mila 2.0 Renegade by Debra Driza

    The writing is very casual which can be quite charming, but it doesn't always flow.
