    You might find it worth investing in this. Great if O'Brian's jargon leaves you scratching your head.

    I was considering it. The jargon is tough and most of it is un-google-able.

    Finishing Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Planning on buying some new books on amazon but haven't really give a thought about that.

    one day in the life of ivan denisovich

    I found that one strangely refreshing after slogging through and stalling out during Crime and Punishment.

    Still with Life of Pi. What's wrong with this book. Somehow it is so hard to finish this one.

    That's because Pi is a number with no ending.

    Just went through a few from Murakami:

    Kafka on the shore
    After dark
    What I talk about when I talk about running
