Im currently reading 'Known Evil' by Walter Mosley.

Its a sequel to 'The Long Fall' which was an outstanding detective mystery.



Quote:
Leonid McGill, Mosley’s newest hero (The Long Fall, 2009), is haunted by the bad things he used to do to people—or so he keeps telling us. At first, the plot seems to support that claim: as McGill works his case, tracking a young woman for a powerful fixer, he is also consumed with helping a former victim, rescuing his son’s girlfriend from her pimp, and remaining respectful in his loveless marriage. But those plotlines are decoys because the supporting characters aren’t fully developed. Each exists to demonstrate something about McGill—his remorse, violence, loyalty—and then is quickly whisked offstage. Mosley has written some classic crime novels, and he has a devoted following, but the strikingly different setting of this series doesn’t hide a glaring flaw: from start to finish, McGill and his supporting cast don’t change. This is a very interior, solipsistic crime novel, and McGill’s first-person narration may feel oppressive to some readers. Others may wonder how such a self-centered sleuth could possibly become a good judge of other people’s characters. In marked contrast to Mosley’s threadbare L.A. settings, McGill’s world is lush and wealthy. But it’s also cartoonish in its absolutes: McGill knows no fear but constructs spy-worthy escape hatches. He has an extensive network of criminals and stone-cold killers. He’s short and ugly, but women throw themselves at him. All writing requires some degree of world-building, but the world Mosley has built here shows the marks of its invention. --Keir Graff

I read on average about 2 books a week.

I have read more than that before but lately Ive been watching a lot of television shows and so I have slacked on reading. Im currently watching 'Dexter', 'How I Met Your Mother', 'Burn Noticed', and 'The Wire'. Also, I have caught up with 'Breaking Bad', 'Battlestar Galactica' (already concluded), and 'Fringe'.


Right now Im reading two novels, which Ive finished about a third of.. 'You Suck' by Christopher Moore and 'Known Evil' by Walter Mosley.

I don't know how you read multiple books at once. I am the type of reader that has to dedicate myself to one book at a time.

Its my short attention span or having a book not capture my attention. Then I will take a long time to read a certain book, while Im easily going through others.

Plus, its easier to read multiple novels at a time if they differentiate in subject or genre. I am reading two books one is a comedy and the other is a detective mystery.

Found this in a box a few days ago....i checked it out from my college library 6 YEARS AGO and must have forgot to return it

This is a short and sweet read (< 150 pages) that you can get through in a couple hours. I've read up quite extensively on Einstein and relativity in the past, and although this is pretty much a broad overview of his life -- it's EXCELLENT. There are a whole bunch of photos, drawings, sketches, hand-drawn formulas some of which I had never seen before. Very fun to read.

If you want to learn as much as you can about Albert Einstein and General/Special Relativity in as little time as possible...this is the book.
