I plowed through a bunch of books this summer and swore to myself with each one that I would post a book review. It’s not like I spent all summer just watching episodes of Robot Chicken, The Simpsons, The Venture Brothers, and Ghost in the Shell. Sure, that took up 80% of my free time, but I engaged with literature at times, too.
So here’s a partial list of reviews to potentially look forward to, or not, in no particular order:
- Waiting for Fidel by Christopher Hunt
- Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner
- The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan
- Cycling’s Greatest Misadventures edited by Erich Schweikher
- Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach
- Too Much Coffee Man’s Parade of Tirade by Shannon Wheeler
- Murder Mysteries by Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell
I also read reasonable sized chunks of several technical books, but I’ll probably spare you those. I mean, do you really want to read about how I used Fedora Linux by Chris Tyler to better configure my desktop and laptop? Yeah, I didn’t think so, even though it is a useful book.
