    Re reading this classic.
    The most un-PC book I've ever read.

    Jeff Ament got me curious… who can identify the books he blurred out on this post? Something unreleased perhaps? Or maybe too personal to share, which is why I decided against commenting on his post. 



    I am currently finishing Heavier Than Heaven about Kurt Cobain by Charles Cross. Very insightful, but man it’s depressing to read.

    I'm reading Philosophy of Modern Song by Bob Dylan, it is otherworldly and sensational, psychedelic and at times highly symbolic and eye opening.

    Climbing, mountaineering, outdoors fans, this is a must read!  Alex's descriptions of his climbs put you right there, gripping that rock, totally in the zone.  It's simply amazing: 
    Alone On The Wall - By Alex Honnold paperback  Target

    “The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man [or woman] who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”
    Variously credited to Mark Twain or Edward Abbey.

    Reading Running with the Buffaloes right now.
    Read the other two recently, liked them both although not really more than decent books.

    Aldous Huxley: Brave New World Revisited. A great follow-up to Huxley's classic Brave New World. Both equally prophetic.  Written in 1931 and 1958 respectively, Huxley's visions are increasingly relevant.  Fascinating, and at the very least, a bit disturbing.   A long over-due read for this Huxley fan.

    Just started reading Ernest Hemingway's A Moveable Feast.  I've read a lot of Hemingway but hadn't read any in quite some time so having not read this one, I picked up a copy of the restored edition:
    Amazoncom A Moveable Feast The Restored Edition 9781439182710 Hemingway  Ernest Hemingway Sean Hemingway Patrick Books
    I've tended to read mostly non-fiction these last several years and when I read the first short chapter in this book, I was immediately re-infected with the love of great literature.  Right away, I was thrown into the smells and sights and the damp cold winter of 1920s Paris and marveled as the author scrawled on his notebook in the cafe he sought out to warm up and dry off.  This will be a great read. Literary bliss!

    I started rereading the wheel f time. I'm on book 3 the dragon reborn.  This was brought on by me watching the amazon show version and thinking no way was the story this awful.  Anyway the books are still great.  I would say that the quality of season 1 of the show is about as good as the final crap season of GoT.  They just ran roughshod over the source material.

    Since Long Road came out, I've really dove into Steven Hyden's books.  I finished This Isn't Happening last month and am almost halfway through this one.

    I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on.

    Started Book #5 in The Wheel of Time series. 

    I started the first book over ten years ago and stopped reading halfway thru because it seemed like a "teenager series" book.   Glad I gave it another chance last year.   Things really pick up after the first half and get deeper and darker as the series goes on.  Usually takes me a few months to get thru a book in this series as it is like reading 3-4 regular books.
