Book updates!

I have started reading a few new books. The Justice book that I last wrote about (Representing Justice) was good enough to encourage me to seek more books on Justice. That coupled with a convenient trip to Connecticut’s infamous Book Barn resulted in my buying the book ‘Justice’ by Michael Sandel. So far it has been a pleasant philosophical walk down the road of righteousness.

Simultaneously, I am getting my fiction kick with the second book in the Name of the Wind series by Pstrick Rothfuss.

Anyone else enjoying some summer reading this season?

    I’ve been reading a bunch of history books… boring.

    But you’re going to be sad when you get through that Rothfuss book and realize it’s a trilogy with only two books so far. Two pretty great books, but you’ll want the third :-)

    Stop reading your boring Justice books! There is plenty of Justice in the books I jsut mentioned. Most are good reads, and fast! a few are great reads and you'll be dying for more (Totally agree with Ben on that Name of the Wind/Wise Man's Fear)
    Or you could join the cult and start reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen! a 10 book epic story that is completed! Some notable people who are currently reading it; Ben, Micah, Natalie Portman, Kurt, The McQuaid, Batman. Don't miss out!

    I’ve been reading Red Mars. I like it a lot, but I seem to spend my baby free time doing chores and wasting my time on the internet, so I’ll be finishing this book in, I dunno like another year (I’ve been reading it since last summer). Someday I’d like to get back to finishing more than half a book a year.
