Underwater Archaeology 2nd ed

Right now...and yes i know this is nerdy...I'm reading La Salle's journals. I'm an archeology major in college and we are searching for one of his ships

Its unfortunate that we live in a society were we (I do it too) compelled to say something like "this is nerdy" . It should be that the fluff books are the ones that people feel a little awkward about reading.

A Storm of Swords

A++ along with the 2 books before it. Honestly awesome stuff. I read a lot, and Id put these on a top fiction 10 list, which is saying a ton. Not that I'd ever push any fiction (fluff) too hard. I plan on re-reading this at some point in the not to far future.

Door Into Summer quick, kind of heartwarming read, not amazing or anything but a nice short little book. Wouldn't go out of my way to get this one, but if you happen across it it is worth the read.

Found two online for right away.

"On War" has been popping up around me wherever I go where books are. I am now seriously considering it.

Thanks!

"Trust Me, I'm Lying" by Ryan Holiday. After reading that, I'll never read a blog or online news site again. Not like I ever really did in the past.

Still working on a book that's a collection of short stories by H.P. Lovecraft. I also might start reading "The Twelve Caesars" by Suetonius tonight.

I read Waking The Tiger by Peter A Levine and Ann Frederick.  I'm working on The Body Keeps Score by Bessel van der Kolk.  I'm interested in understanding more about human beings and happiness, and its lead me towards studying trauma, which both of these books are about.

The last 'new' (to me) book I read was... I think the Wool/Silo trilogy by huge Howey crazy good reviews. AWESOME Post apocalypse type thing heavy  on the reality of what 'life would be like' plus how the end of the world might (actually) happen. Not relying on say monsters or random asteroids or even an intentional war. Really well done.

 

But right now i'm re reading the last book in A Song of Ice and Fire (aka game of thrones) noticing a lot I missed the first time. So much goes on. It's really good but it's hard sometimes to keep all the characters straight.
