    Just started Jerusalem by Alan Moore. Brick of a book but I’m enjoying it so far. He has a very interesting mind. I’m also listening to Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield. Riveting account of the battle of Thermopylae and the events preceding and following it.

      I read extensively about evolutionary biology, so that book looks like it's right up m alley. Thanks for the heads-up.

        Now, unfortunately, I don't have free time to read. But I really hope that I'll soon be able to go on vacation and on vacation I can read at least a few books.
        And thanks, here are so many interesting books advised

            Love Roger Zelazny an awesome author, a little known novella by him that is pretty interesting and I wish he had expanded on was "Jack of Shadows"

            Zalazney has a few really good reads. I got both of my boys into sci-fi / fantasy reading the Amber series.

            Surprise, kill, vanish.

            Authored by Annie Jacobsen.

            A history lesson about CIA operations. Mostly about assassinations.

              Started the Discworld series at the start of quarantine, currently on I Shall Wear Midnight, with three more to go, should wrap up before Christmas. Can't believe I took so long to get around to reading these. The upcoming Watch show looks SO disappointing.

              Had to put the series on hold to binge the new Dresden books though. REALLY hope we someday get an adaption that does it justice because Battle Ground is screaming for a proper GOT-style treatment. Can't wait for the next one.

                Pratchett is fantastic. I haven't read all of the Discworld series yet. I have a difficult time staying focused with one general story for too long. But it's definitely on my list to finish up.

              I just started Rhythm of War, book 4 in the Stormlight Archive, by Brandon Sanderson. It isn't actually out until the 17th, but Tor has been releasing chapters each week since August.

              If you like high fantasy, you cannot beat Stormlight. I'm so excited to get the full book next week.

                I'm a junkie for Cold War intel stories. How is it? After reading Christopher Andrew and Vasili Mitrohkin's KGB works, this fucked up world makes a lot more sickening sense. Got a few books on Mossad/Shin Bet. Southern African intel is well-represented in my library, and MI6 is the next topic on the list.

                  Sounds like this one is right up your alley.

                "Given Up for Dead: America's Heroic Stand at Wake Island" by Bill Sloan - This is a good first person account in a lot of parts with very good historical background research to bring to light what lead to and what happened on Wake Island during WWII. I'm about 2/3 the way through and will most likely finish up this weekend.

                  Currently about halfway through "Neuromancer" by William Gibson. Holy crap. It's fantastic. This is the guy that coined the word "cyberspace" and invented the cyberpunk genre. There are three books in the series and I'm already looking forward to the next two.

                    Was a great book even had the audio book on cassette tape (long ago converted to mp3). I need to listen to that book again, thanks for the memory!

                    No problem! I've been on a big sci-fi kick lately, and I'm really loving this book. Kind of reminds me of Ready Player One and Enders Game in a way, but still very different. And those are two of my favorite books.

                    A recommendation from Kerwin Rae (great podcasts).

                    I am reading “The Magician’s Way: what it really takes to find your treasure” by William Whitecloud.

                      Just finished 'Last Night in Twisted River' by John Irving. That was a long one for me. I feel I'm now an expert in northern NH logging.

                      Onto 'The Trouble with Peace' by Joe Abercrombie and then maybe 'Enders Game' after that.

                        I'm doing a Cosmere reread. Started with The Way of Kings, now on Words of Radiance. I'm also reading some nonfiction - Boundless Sea, One Billion Americans, and The Power Worshippers, because I cannot read just one book at a time.
