Most sci-fi authors simply have cool sciency ideas, and are decent writers, but are not good writers.

Iain M. Banks was a very good writer.

Re-read James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time because it's great and because I wanted something slim/small for a recent trip to London. Today I started the Why We Sleep book written by a neuroscientist that I mentioned in my last post, hopefully it'll encourage me to sleep more, even though I feel like right now I sleep the most I've ever done (7-9 hours, usually broken about once/twice tho). Alongside that I bought Bell Hook's All About Love and Youssef El-Gingihy's How to Dismantle the NHS in 10 Easy Steps (which I'll likely read over the weekend as it's another slim book that won't take too much space on my travels).

Am listening to Joe Abercrombie audibooks.
Finished Half a King and now listening to its sequel Half a War in his Shattered Sea series.

Keen to finish it and also listen to the beginning of his new series The Age of Madness, with Steven Pacey narrating again!

Halfway through re-reading Lord of the Rings.

Separately, I also took out a Comixology trial to read Watchmen, Sandman and Swamp Thing, which I'm sure will make @Potemkin a happy bunny.

The Supernova Era by Cixin Liu, best known for his Remembrance of Earth’s Past trilogy.

Quite nationalist, like Chinese sci-fi movies are right now.

Watergate journalist Bob Woodward’s new book, FEAR: Trump in the White House. I remember writing an academic paper about Bush's wars based on his previous book: Bush at War (2002).

Last book I read was Cloudsplitter by Russel Banks, about John Brown. It was excellent.

Good book about Josephus and the death(since that's an adequate description) of the Second Jewish Temple.

Just started with THE TEACHING ABOUT EMOTIONS Historical-Psychological Studies - Lev Vygotsky

I believe it is going to help me greatly in considering the nature of emotions and help theoretically integrate it into consideration of the whole of a personality/psychology.
Rather than a rationalism of the intellect, the why of why we do anything finds its motive force in affect and the nature of emotion is curious one in trying to delinate its exact nature and development.

Took a class on the history of Latin and South America.

We have a long history of abusing and exploiting those countries.

Glanced at it, that's a perennial, 2 or 3 times a decade you'll see a book like that.
