John's Reading Report (February 2008)

Here's what I've read since my last report:

Bill Bryson's The Life And Times of the Thunderbolt Kid.

Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. I love his show No Reservations, and reading about life in the "culinary underbelly" was simultaneously fascinating and funny.

Orbit, John J. Nance. Surprisingly entertaining. I had low expectations, but the story grabbed me about half the way through and I couldn't put it down.

In progress:

Flashman, George MacDonald Fraser.

Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, Douglas R. Hofstadter.

Consciousness Explained, Daniel C. Dennett.

On deck:

Suite Francaise, Irene Nemerovsky. One offered up by the Amazon algorithm based on product searches and past purchases. I hope it is as compelling as the author's own story.

The Forever War, Joe Haldeman. I've been meaning to read this for, like, forever.

Soul Made Flesh: The Discovery of the Brain--and How it Changed the World, Carl Zimmer.

Still about five months' worth of Analog magazine.
