    The 2-Hour Job Search

    (It takes longer to read the book than it does to implement its recommendations.)

    I'll have to check into that. Looks like it could be helpful.

    Has anybody read the "newer" Bond novels by Amis, Gardner, Deaver, et al? Any opinions?

    It's written by a career counselor at Duke's business school. He uses the 80/20 rule to help maximize efficiency by eliminating wastes of time from a job search.

    Technically a short story, but right now I'm reading At the Mountains of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft. Brilliantly suspenseful and asks difficult questions about what makes a monster.

    I just finished Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. It's the first of a trilogy set in a dystopian future. It came out in 2003 and, aside from being a brilliantly written, very entertaining story, it's scarily prescient. Atwood's a genius. I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy.

    The Handmaid's Tale is one of my favorite books.

    Currently reading Game of Thrones; there's something great about having to look up a word now and then. Fantastic characters.

    Thank You for Your Service by David Finkel. Emotionally exhausting but very worthwhile and well written. Provides a glimpse of the challenges some of our soldiers face upon returning home.
