This book started off really slow and I almost stopped reading it, but I continued with it and the last few hundred pages were stunningly amazing. So glad I didn't judge it from it's slow start and finished it.

Reading the final book in the Wheel of Time series right now.

Following it up with Terry Francona's new book where he dishes on the bullshit that went down during his time managing the Sox.

Following THAT up with finally getting into the fifth Game of Thrones book.

Just finished The Fountainhead and Wealth of Nayions recently. Fountainhead was good and I enjoyed it a bit more than Atlad Shrugged because it was much easier to tolerate and Roark was a more enjoyable character than those in Atlas. Kinda cool he was based on Frank Lloyd Wright.

Wealth of Nations was cool. Most of it is just a support of free trade but it has some interesting sections on stuff like banking and education. Kinda fun to guess where he would stand on modern policy.

The night before the blizzard I took my mother to Barne's and Noble to take a course on her Nook.

She's not technilogically retarded like most women approaching 60, so why she wanted to take this course, I really don't know, but she did. She was afraid there were things she could be doing with it that she wasn't. For example, you can apparently use it to surf internet on your tv. It has a cord, I told her to "just plug the thing in and see what happens", but I'm no expert who teaches a class, she needed that guy to tell her to "plug it in and it'll prompt you what to do".

Anyway I wondered around the store while her class was happening, which they do weekly and no one shows up, and she was the only one there that night, and stumbled onto a bunch of stuff I wanted to buy. But I have a nook that's a few years old that I never use, so I figured I'd give it a try instead. So when I got home I picked up this.



So far it's pretty good. It's only about 200 pages, and I'm about 50 in. It's about a team that gets sent into the furthest point in space mankind has ever been. It's from the POV of a journalist who was put on the team to report home. But as the ship heads out, people start dieing from one accident or another, and he's left alone on the ship, which then fails to turn around. I thought it would be more about everyone dieing, but I'm only a quarter in and everyone is already dead.

I am currently very interested in why people assume a lot. Why do people think it's our job to spread democracy and our way of living? Is such a thing even possible? If we go into a place with that goal how do we set it up from there?

This book is all about the failed reconstruction of Iraq. The author is a little grating, and annoying, but the information is good. It's clear that no one was on the same page.

Hysterical book by my favorite comedian. It's literally one of the most evil and laugh inducing books I've ever read all at the same time.

Reviews:
"Wow! This fabulous book made me a better cheater and a shittier father!"
-Artie Lange

"I do not condone a single thing in this book; in fact I find the topic disgusting. The authors, however, are as funny as their ideas are despicable."
-Greg Gutfield

I don't think I read any entire books between 2005 and 2012. This will be the third one I've finished in 2013.
