    Sadly, I still haven't finished this book. I read so much for work, I rarely get to read for pleasure. I'm about 80% through it, and I have enjoyed it tremendously. I highly recommend it.

    Next on the list is Lonesome Dove.

    I thought this book would be better than it was. But for anyone who has any interest in The Simpon's give it a read. Even if the book is almost 20 years old.

    Ordered a few books to be here shortly:
    1. The Food Lab by Kenji Lopez-Alt (More of a cookbook than reading book)
    2. Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood by Michael Lewis
    3. How Not To Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking by Jordan Ellenberg
    4. Can You Solve My Problems?: Ingenious, Perplexing, and Totally Satisfying Math and Logic Puzzles by Alex Bellos (Of Numberfile fame) for a fun read

    Currently reading Frank Kafka's The Trail
    also Selfie by Will Storr

    enjoying both so far.

    I just finished Homo Deus a couple weeks ago. I didn't really enjoy it nearly as much as Sapiens. I had my hesitations as well, and felt like it didn't deliver.

    @Cornflake I read The Trial a few years back. Absolutely loved it. Made me want to read other Kafka novels/stories, so I quickly followed it up with The Metamorphosis. Another great read.

    Currently reading early Neal Asher Polity universe books. I started with his Transformation series which was great. It's good space opera, certainly not Kafka.

    "The Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson

    I grew up on the south side of Chicago and knew nothing about the Worlds Fair or HH Holmes.

    @Erik Pérez I loved that book. After reading it I went and tracked down other books by Erik Larson. Of them all I enjoyed Devil in the White City the most. That said, I do recommend giving his other stories a read though. Highly entertaining.

    Funny I did the same thing. The only other one I can remember was Thunderstruck, so I recommend that one. Not a good sign I can't remember the others (meaning either they were not that good or old age is making me forgetful, both bad).
