Gah I still have to finish the Bobiverse. Loved the first one.

I just finished American Gods. Awesome.

Now it's back and forth between the second Mistborn series (the first trilogy was great, highly recommended if you dig high fantasy) and White Fragility.

Just finished "The righteous mind" by Jon Haidt. Starting on "The coddling of the American mind" now, his book that birthed the viral "The Atlantic" article.

Great analyses of why American culture has become so contentious, and on how to better relate to those with whom you disagree. One of the few "defusers" left in academia.

Off the history kick needed some escapism:

"A Hymn Before Battle" by John Ringo book one of the The Legacy of the Aldenata. I've read them before enjoyed them looking forward to enjoying them again. I also love the fact he included references to Sluggy Freelance and Bun-Bun in the series.
