That's a blast from the past. I spent my tween years devouring those star wars sequels. How do they hold up?

Ever read Splinter of the Mind's Eye? I read that over and over when I was in middle and high school. I'm a little too old to have read the Zahn books growing up, but the recent discussion in the Disney/Lucasfilm thread has me curious.

its been so fucking long that I don't even remember what happens. I'm 200 pages in so far and its pretty damn good. I think it'll be an enjoyable threequel.

Influence_The_Psychology_of_Persuasion.jpg

Only about 70 pages in (and like 20 are contents, publishing info and shit), but it's interesting so far. As I read more everything kind of intertwines together and they all more sense. Only downside is I can barely remember anything and I've read so little.

After I'm thinking of reading 48 Laws of Power, the Bioshock book (yeah...), or maybe Atlas Shrugged.

Really enjoyed both Cialdini's book and the Rules of Power. Stick with them both. It's good stuff.

Reading Adventures on the Wine Route now

Taking my jolly good time finishing this book (almost done!). It's fantastic - makes you thirsty and want to spend a few weeks tooling around France drinking good or bad wine, but it's definitely something I've enjoyed reading leisurely. Almost done though.

Though I hate to do it, I actually started and finished another book while reading the above. I recently completed it and I've started on volume 2.


I can't wait to watch next summer!

It's a little "rough" language and content wise, but seemed to me to be an accurate portrayal of street life and survival.

"Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson

 

Not sure how I feel about the guy as a person, but its fascinating at how good he was at getting what he wanted out of people.

The Ghost by Harris. It's soon to be a movie with the trainspotting kid, so I thought I'd read it since I have no fiction right now. It is a great book, well written and good plot. You can get through it in a week.
It's relevant to our time since the world leader seem to have the ability to off their own citizens at will now.

Just finished "The New Tycoons."
