halfway through foundation.

read them all before but don't remember much detail from the early books so is good.

prob stop after the first 3. sometimes i like the longer story sometimes i think is forced and finding earth could have been much cooler.

dan carlin - the end is always near.

8 pieces about apocalyptic scanarios from history.
i liked it, but i felt like a lot of it was made up of things he's covered on his show.

8/10 not must read but interesting.


and a book about a guy who ran a japanese wrestling promotion and got in debt to the yakuza, 5/10, link to it in the pro wrestling thread.

Anyone has an ereader, likes to steal books but has trouble finding them, try this site:


Z-library. I just grabbed a couple of Peter Fitzsimons novels and the posthumous Robert Jordan that was published last year, which I couldn't find for love nor money up until I tried this site, and there it was. No signup or anything like that.

I am halfway through A little life by Hanya Yanigahari. It follows the lives of four friends from their college days to older life and chronicles their secrets and changing group dynamic over time. There is a strong subplot running through regarding one of the characters Jude who was abused as a youngster. It is very well written and does a sound job of maintaining suspense throughout, given the content.

I find that my leisurely reading time is next to nothing these days as I spend most of my day reading the deplorable shit that is served up by my students.

This is good a German soldier biography in WW2
good read .

When Guy Sajer joins the infantry full of ideals in the summer of 1942, the German army is enjoying unparalleled success in Russia. However, he quickly finds that for the foot soldier the glory of military success hides a much harsher reality of hunger, fatigue and constant deprivation. Posted to the crack Grosse Deutschland division, with its sadistic instructors who shoot down those who fail to make the grade, he enters a violent and remorseless world where all youthful hope is gradually ground down, and all that matters is the brute will to survive. As the biting cold of the Russian winter sets in, and the tide begins to turn against the Germans, life becomes an endless round of pounding artillery attacks and vicious combat against a relentless and merciless Red Army. A book of stunning force, this is an unforgettable reminder of the horrors of war.

Listening to the Graphic Audio edition of the third Stormlight Archives book by Brandon Sanderson. I just can't seem to really read anything. Nor can I seem to stay tuned in to anything that isn't pretty fantastical fiction.
