Probability Theory: The Logic of Science by E. T. Jaynes.
I prefer the follow-up:
Can you believe I looked high and low to find the edition corrected by Joyce? I had to scour the net just to find a halfway decent version of Under The Volcano by Lowry too. What is it about the greatest works of literature having the WORST editing possible? I swear Penguin took a draft of Under The Volcano and just ran with it.
oh come now. it had sean connery. how could it be horrendous with that phantahstiq axscent?
i can't believe i'm more than halfway through
and it's a damned good thing i'm reading The Sun Also Rises to keep me sane
Moveable Feast? That's just a bunch of short pieces, right?
I guess so, although they all deal with Paris and seem to follow a linear pattern. I just thought of them as a memoir in short vignettes, readable in bits and pieces, or as a whole.
Although, Rushdie also seems to write his novels (at least the ones I've read) in a similar manner, telling one story and then jumping along to the next - not as sharply delineated as others, but still a series of vignettes.
...still working on Midnight's Children (and it is work, at the moment).
The third voume of Larsson's trilogy arrived and I have now started The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. Enjoying it quite a bit. Will probably finish this first.
Just finished both Rabbit, Run and Rabbit Redux.
Read Search for the Lost City of Z which was very very good over the weekend.
Picked up A Little Tour in France by Henry James which is a complete bore to read. Should finish it today or tomorrow.
Have You Can't be President and Havana Nocturne on the way...
Looking for some recommendations as well... Any books on the Amazon and any of its explorers would be cool as would something on thor heyerdahl's expedition.
Valley Of Bones, no. 7 in Dance to the Music Of Time, Anthony Powell
Down and Out in Paris and London
Choices, Values, and Frames
Manhood for Amateurs: The Pleasures and Regrets of a Husband, Father, and Son by Michael Chabon
Kill Bin Laden by "Dalton Fury" - mission stuff is kind of eh, but I'm fascinated by the training and lifestyle of elite soldiers. Actually, I guess that's more a general fascination with outsider micro-cultures, whether that's Delta Force or porn stars (are there any good insider accounts of the modern porn industry?) or cults.
Much Obliged, Jeeves....by PG Wodehouse
I'm Dying Up Here: Heartbreak and High Times in Stand-up Comedy's Golden Era by William Knoedelseder Stand-up comics in the 70s. Pretty good read.

I prefer the follow-up:
