    "Spaceman: An Astronaut's Unlikely Journey to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe" by Mike Massimino

    I finally know how to become an astronaut. But seems that it's too late.

    I finished Chekov's complete works over xmas break!!

    I also read Asimov's 'The End of Eternity' - wow, it was quite good. Asimov was brilliant. I also started Arthur C. Clarke's 'Childhood's End', but I'm not quite as wow'd by it as End of Eternity so it's not proven as compelling and I'm juggling it with the below:

    I just started 'Pride and Prejudice', which is kind of a quick read (for me) -- I'm surprised how closely the BBC production of it way back when followed it - it's very close/similar, and now it's impossible for me to NOT envision Darcy as Colin Firth or Mr./Mrs. Bennett as those actors.

    Finished Pride and Prejudice; just started 'The Turn of the Screw', by Henry James, which appears to be a pretty short novella of his. I'm already totally surprised as it's nothing like the other few books of his that I've read. But I really do like his writing.

    Finally getting around to reading "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. My housemate is lending it to me. Beautifully written so far.

    Now reading 'The War of the Worlds', which oddly (given my tastes) I'd never read before.

    Yes I am reading a lot these days but it's a very good thing for me.

    Since Christmas I have read Timeless by R. A. Salvatore
    Season of Storms by Andrzej Sapkowski
    The Emperors Soul, Warbreaker, and Elantris all by Brandon Sanderson

    And I am about to start Tomorrow War by J. L. Bourne
    The strong manly ones in life are those who understand the meaning of the word patience. Patience means restraining one's inclinations. There are seven emotions: joy, anger, anxiety, adoration, grief, fear, and hate, and if a man does not give way to these he can be called patient. I am not as strong as I might be, but I have long known and practiced patience. And if my descendants wish to be as I am, they must study patience.
