    I am the Cat who walks by themself; and all places are alike to me...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    They are the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    They are the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is their cousin, and they speak her language;
    but they are more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remember that which she hath forgotten...

    Just started 'The Lost City of Z' by David Grann earlier today, and I'm about to dive back into it. I picked it up at the book store last week, as it's my 'ideal' when it comes to non-fiction -- historical true stories of expeditions/ events/ historical unfoldings/ ventures into the unexplored or little-known wild / non-westernized areas. Plus since I've been to the Amazon several times now, it has a personal appeal as well.

    There is one of the first edition cleric books which goes into tons of depth about religions and philosophies and how to weave them into your world, besides another book on ninjas (which was pretty good too in its depth and period references) its my favourite.

    I am reading three books (I need to stop doing that):
    - Brain on fire by S. Cahalan - so so good!
    - Shantaram by G.D.Roberts
    also once for a while I read one chapter of Cosmos by C.Sagan

    But yesterday I downloaded 5 more free books from amazon that I haven't read yet, so soon I'll have a few new things to add into the mix.
    Are you one of the people who get obsessed about the author and start to read everything by them?

    I don't always, but I've definitely done it with several authors.
