Homages are great. So are the real things. Watches win, in my book.
I took a break from school to simplify my life and get on track in a new assignment with new hours. My new found freedom allowed me the time to read for pleasure and catch up on some books that had been piling up.
I started several. Didn't finish them all.
1. Atlas Shrugged. I tried and just can't get into it.
2. Dianetics. He had me for the first third, then it just got too bizarre. I really want to finish it. I'll try again some day.
3. Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know, by Ranulph Fiennes. I finally finished it.
4. Jack, Straight From the Gut, by Jack Welch. Okay, but it hasn't gripped me and I haven't finished it.
5. It's Not About the Bike My Journey Back to Life, by Lance Armstrong. Not quite done but I have devoured it in the last three days.
The Lance Armstrong Biography is much better than I thought it would be. It was given to me as a gift back in July. I just picked it up on Wednesday and have devoured it. Sometimes books work, sometimes they don't and sometimes I just can't put them down. I wish all were in that last category.
As a cancer survivor, I appreciate his perspective about the disease. I was very selfish about it. If it were to hit me again, I would not be. I highly recommend this book to all, especially those battling cancer.
I am currently read The Lost Symbol, I just read the The Clinton Tapes by Taylor Branch.

Re-read "Lone Survivor" by Marcus Luttrell. Good read - my second time through it and still as good as ever.
Currently working through "The Making of a Chef" by Michael Ruhlman. It's about his stint at the CIA (Culinary Institute of America). Also a good read!
Just finished Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain - very entertaining.
Currently reading Protect and Defend by Vince Flynn. It's the 5th or 6th book in the "Mitch Rapp" story and I've read 'em all. Excellent entertainment reading, especially if you're a Tom Clancy/DC thriller genre fan.
Next up Cash by Johnny Cash (autobiography)

Respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment - Lao Tzu
I've been on a Kurt Vonnegut kick for a while I've read about 10-15 of his books. Just finished "Blue Beard" and currently reading the "Welcome to the Monkey House" which is a bunch of his short stories, not his best work but entertaining.
