Recently on my bookshelf …

I just finished my recent semester and can get into some serious reading. Here’s what’s been on my bookshelf lately:

  • Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, by Jared Diamond
    Great book, really excellent … exploring the various factors in how societies fail. Talked about Anasazi, Norse in Greenland, Easter Island, Rwanda, and many other cultures/societies.
  • Bias, by Bernard Goldberg
    Interesting book on the bias in what and how established media cover the “news.”
  • East of Desolation, by Jack Higgins
    Fluffy but enjoyable.
  • The Borman Testament, by Jack Higgins
  • The Fall of Hyperion, by Dan Simmon
    Overrated – bigtime. I am seriously not impressed with books that mix science fiction and fantasy …

More details later … but we’ve got to run into town to the library, mall, and grocery store as it’s snowing outside and we’re a little worried we won’t be able to drive soon.
