Summertime Reading

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

This summer, I've taken to relaxing on the deck (or in the hot tub), and reading. I've spent many a warm bright day lounging in the sun, absorbing all the wit, wisdom, adventure, and education that my extensive library brings me.

I've slowly, almost casually, enjoyed many of my old favourites, working my way through the David Eddings Belgariad and Malorian series of fantasy books. I'm almost finished the second-to-last book in that series: Polgara The Sorceress, and will soon start The Riven Codex.

But, I have not limited myself to fantasy this summer; Economics (Filthy Lucre by Joseph Heath), Copyright (Remix by Lawrence Lessig), Philosophy (I Am A Strange Loop by Douglas Hofstadter), and Biography (
Robert A. Heinlein: In Dialogue with His Century: Volume 1 (1907-1948): Learning Curve
by William H. Patterson, Jr.) have all caught and kept my attention.

Boy, it feels good to have the opportunity to pursue my intellectual interests again.
