Just over a 1/3rd of the way through Dark Matter. It is great so far. I'm looking forward to all the twists and turns. 

I can really see this made into a movie/ Netflix show. 

I'm going to re-read this soon. It just keeps getting better.

Finished Dark Matter over the weekend. Yeah..it is a great book. Made me think a lot about life and different choices. It made multiple universes pretty easy to understand. I just flew through the back half of the book in one sitting. 


I started The White Van by Patrick Hoffman, which is a bank roberry book set in San Fran.

Had this on preorder and it finally got delivered yesterday. Didn't have a chance to dig in last night, but I'm hoping to do it tonight.

Read the first two Jack Reacher novels recently. Not bad.

Author Lee Child has cameo appearances in both Jack Reacher films, if you know when to look.  Nicely done, IMO.  Coincidentally, I'm going through a couple of Reacher books for the second time - "A Wanted Man" and "61 Hours"

Have a couple of Blake Crouch novels waiting on the coffee table, "Abandoned" and "Snowbound".  After "Dark Matter" and "Recursion" blew me away, I'm looking forward to more of Crouch's stuff.

Also re-reading some of the earlier Repairman Jack books by F. Paul Wilson - "Conspiracies" and "The Haunted Air".  Both were just a little different than my usual fare the first time thru,  and that sucked me into the maelstrom of the whole series until I finally finished "Nightworld".  Wore me out.

Anyone have any recommendations for a good personal development book?

What kind of personal development are you talking about?  Spiritual? Leadership?  Can you give a little more detail of your struggles that you're looking to refine?

Maybe something that will help with my general listlessness. I tend to go through funks every once in a while and it feels like I'm heading into one now.

As Man Thinketh by James Allen is always good for when I get into a bad frame of mind.

I found a book on my shelf that I hadn’t finished reading:

Browns Essential by Mary Boyer

It’s a compilation of stories about Cleveland Brown history. If you aren’t a Browns fan then you would not like it.

Said 93 million have already voted?....how many people 18 and over are in the U.S.? 240 million?

Seems odd about 35% has already voted. What the voting % of a presidential election 60%? I’ll guess 70% for this one.

I read that after watching HBO doc. HBO doc>>>book. Book was tedious in my opinion.

I enjoyed the book. It obviously suffered since she passed away before finishing it, but I like her writing.
