Oh yes, loads. My bookshelf is possibly almost as precious as my music collection. We need quality books in this fast paced SoMe world.

I've just read a couple of Raymond Chandler books, Playback, and his unfinished novel Poodle Springs that was finished off by the late great Robert B Parker. It felt like Chandler.

Halfway through Neal Stephenson's Fall or Dodge in Hell here too (I snagged a signed copy) next up will be "How To" by Randall Munroe.

I'm a geek.

Just finished:

John Dies at the End by David Wong (mix of horror and comedy, pretty fun)

Now reading:
H.G. Wells - The Invisible Man

and some non-fiction:

Sam Harris - Waking Up (spirituality from a non-religious/skeptic viewpoint)
Matthew Walker - Why We Sleep (latest scientific knowledge on sleep. Which is both interesting and terrifying since I'm suffering from rather severe insomnia sometimes)
