I have to re-start "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance", got half way through and life happened.
About to wrap up "The beginner's guide to Reality" by Jim Baggott (which wasn't half bad).

I'm not sure what I'll be reading. I got married recently and my wife has a lot of books I've always meant to read. I'd consider Dan John's book, but I heard somewhere he has no squat. I'll almost certainly read a bit of Boswell's Life of Johnson or Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy, some 19th century Russian religious literature, and maybe some chess book if I think I'll get around to playing chess. Those are always on the agenda, other than that, it's all up in the air.

I have read Walden each of the last two (three?) summers and plan on reading it again this summer. I'll probably read For Whom the Bell Tolls again as well. I read One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest last summer and liked it so much I think I'll read it again this summer.

I just yesterday finished reading Predictably Irrational. Very good. Currently slogging my way through Proust and I also am rereading Guns, Germs, and Steel.

This summer I'd like to read a non-Constance Garnett translation of Crime and Punishment. And then either Moby Dick or Ulysses, both if I'm feeling ambitious. Some evolutionary theory, some Michael Lewis, and whatever else catches my fancy.

Having summers off is the best.

Nobody going to catch up on the Green Lantern and the rest of the Blackest Night saga?

There's not good comic shops on the side of town where I live, so I gotta wait till I visit home or go to west Cleveland.

Do Pevear and Volokhonsky translation. And skip the chapter about whales in Moby Dick (that sounds funny to say, but anybody's who's read it knows what chapter that is).

It's been pretty interesting so far.

If you liked Cuckoo's Nest, check out "Sometimes a Great Notion." Another Kesey book, and it is freaking great.

Right now, Margin of Safety by Seth Klarman and The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham. If anybody has any suggestions along these lines, I'd love to hear them.

You might want to check out Irrational Exuberance by Shiller if you have not done so already.
