    Currently reading The Art of Rivalry. It's a fascinating and well-written book that looks at a bunch of famous art duos -- Bacon and Freud, Manet and Degas, etc. -- and explores how their friendships and rivalries made them better painters.

    Here's a review: https://www.theguardian.com/books/20...-manet-picasso

    After a long absence of reading, I just picked up The Lost City of the Monkey God. A real life hunt for a lost civilization. Looking forward to this one.

    Really enjoyed The Big Sleep. I actually like Lee Child's Jack Reacher series as he is basically a nouveau hard boiled detective.

    Just picked this book up. Not sure where or how I heard of it, but it was in my queue at the library so I figured I'd give it a shot.

    I just started I Contain Multitudes by Ed Yong https://www.amazon.com/Contain-Multi.../dp/0062368591

    It hasn't grabbed me yet. Based on what I've read so far it appears to be VERY THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED. Seriously, the end notes and bibliography are extensive. I'm hoping that doesn't bog the read down.
