Now reading the second book in Abir Mukherjee's new mystery series, set in Calcutta, India, shortly after the end of WWI. Great stuff so far.

John, with the age of the New Yorker, are there many cartoons that have lost their meaning in the 21st century?

Now starting the final book written by the late great Mr. Stephen Hawking... I read his first book A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME way, way back in 1990 but have not sampled any of his other work since then. I am hoping that reading this new release will inspire me to grab some of his other stuff off of the shelves at my local library...

So I've been listening to audiobooks recently. Does that count as reading?

Anyway, just finished listening to "The Name of the Wind" and "The Wise Man's Fear".

Started listening to "Agincourt" by Bernard Cornwell

Started this one recently. I had ordered it quite some
times ago, but because of the holiday season, it arrived
with a lot of delay.

As a matter of fact, the other 2 books next on my
reading list just arrived yesterday... and they were
ordered the same day !

Star Slammers: The Complete Collection, it has 2 chapters I hadn't seen before(a prologue and epilogue for The Minoan Agendas), along with the original GN by Marvel and his project for RISD...

Now starting the second book by Simon Sinek. I enjoyed his first one (START WITH WHY) and wanted to see how he expanded on the themes he introduced.

About to start reading As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes and Joe Layden.

May be reading Escaping The Dead by W J Lundy after that.

About to start reading Iain Banks' The Quarry, sadly, the last book he finished before he died in 2013. I'm a huge fan of his science fiction novels about the Culture (kind of his own take on the Federation) that he wrote as Iain M. Banks and also his non-genre stuff he wrote as Iain Banks, particularly The Wasp Factory and Espedair Street.

Just finished the novel "Bird Box" which differs from the movie in many ways but at its core, tells the same story.

I've just started reading Peter Cushing's collected autobiographies. Been looking for these for a long time and finally got the book for Christmas.

I started reading George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series a few days ago. I finished "A Game of Thrones" today and will start "A Clash of Kings" tomorrow.

And piling on some more Calvin & Hobbes... this time with commentary by Bill Watterson. Interesting to read his thoughts on writing/drawing cartoons for the Sunday newspapers.
