    OK. He starts including more analysis in the latter half of the book, so it is getting better. I didn't disagree before, but a lot of the earlier arguments were heuristic.

    Just rereading this last night for the second time. Mycroft Holmes. TANSTAAFL. One of the better Heinlein books.

    A decent telling of Vonnegut's life. His life is pretty depressing - he is frustrated at many of the problems he finds them in, but creates them himself by drinking and running around on his wife. His novels are great, and I wanted to get an insight into the man himself.

    Reading. The First Law-trilogy by Joe Abercrombie. On the last book now, and I've read them very fast. Good books. I like his style. Rich writing though easily read. It makes you see everything in your mind's eye, better executed than in most other books I've read. Shows that a few words are enough, the reader can do the rest.

    [Books posted today are ones I have finished reading in the past two weeks, am currently reading or are on the way as library requests. I read about five books a week on average, sometimes more. Technical titles and instructional texts are not included.]

    Madonna how do you manage that? Speedreading?

    I normally juggle 3-5 books at a time but even recreationally reading on average about 90 minutes a day it takes me at least two or three weeks to get through them.

    Nah - some folks just read fast normally.

    When I'm reading normal novels and the like I can punch through about 120 pages per hour. That isn't trying to read quickly - just normal reading speed.

    Now that I have a job/kids/etc. I only read about 3-5 books a month, but when I was in high school and college I routinely read 25-25 books per month... but I read 7 days a week with an average of about 2 hours per day.
