    Despite what you may think if you browse ce im far less wedded to my beliefs than it would seem (but almost assuredly more so than i want to think).

    Anyway dude loves trains but is skeptical theyll solve our transportation problems. Im probably more in line with his views than i think so not really an example of me being open to changing my mind.

    You read any of Jo Nesbo's books?
    I like his stuff.

    I was on my way to Bangkok several years ago and connecting through HKG. I was looking for something to read in one of the bookstores at the airport(I always try to pick up a mystery/thriller based in SE Asia when I am over) and saw Cockroaches by Nesbo. It was based in Bangkok so I went with it. Great read.

    When I came home, I read many of his other books. Good stuff.

    I’m also rereading the classic A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold. This was one of my textbooks in a college Conservation class 25 years ago.

    Just received and immediately read, Charlie Jane Anders' latest, The City in the Middle of the Night. Still not sure what I think about it, but I certainly couldn't stop reading it...

    Interesting read so far. Back before they had it all down and was just winging it.

    I started this about a year ago. I forget. Never finished it as I got busy/started some other books. Good first 200+ pages. It is still sitting under one of my night stands. I need to finish it...really re-read from the beginning.

    Gave up on the last book i posted. It wasnt bad but i wasn't going to read another 150 pages of a 600 page book for it to really get to the meat of things. Im now reading this. It is...interesting.
