Yup, RBA recommended me that his 'Loose Balls' book is an absolute must read aswell. Will do that after I finish this one.

It's not about Cleveland, but this one is pretty damn funny:

Just finished The Extra 2%, it was great. About how the Rays went from the laughing stock of baseball to winning the AL Penant, fascinating read. Sort of like Moneyball

Just started:



Read this awhile ago and it was really fascinating, wanted to re-read.

Any How-To book or text book will keep me entertained for awhile...not a huge novel person. It has to be REALLY good or I end up going "maybe they'll just turn this into a movie" (please don't kill me)

Meno was the best of the Socratic dialogues. It was about the foundation of knowledge and whether virtue can be taught or learned.

Phaedo was more of Plato taking liberty in describing Socrates' death and the discussion was heavily envolved with the soul and afterlife. Probably the most enjoyable of the five to read.

I hated the Apology tho which is probably the most famous Socratic dialogue. The whole thing just made Socrates sound like an epic douche.

The Walking Dead volume 14 graphic novel. It's in the mail and I'll have it in a couple of days. Didn't post a pic cause sometimes the covers contain spoilers.

Yeah, Euthyphro sucked pretty badly. I didn't particularly like any of the first 3 but Crito was alright. The book finished off strong with Meno and Phaedo tho.
