Gnomon: A novel | Nick Harkaway

I always like the idea of Harkaway books but it‘s so hard to get past the beginning for me. I‘m past the beginning of this one but it‘s not coming easy.

Panpan

It's fine as a memoir of a family but looking any deeper than that there's a lot of junk ideas in there. Only read it as a good faith read at Becky's brother-in-law's request.

The Force | Don Winslow

It's a quick one. A little like the Wire by way of the Departed. It hits all the beats you'd expect but not in a dumb way.

4 days left in my vacation. I got through the Cartel in less during a vacation a couple years ago. Going for the repeat!

Stephen Florida | Gabe Habash

This was good and I liked it but I ended up taking about a week break in the middle so maybe it didn't get me the way it could have. Still, I never thought I'd want to finish a book featuring so much wrestling.

Everybody that came through Receiving today was made to look at this. So much story packed into a slim 100pgs.

I'm only reading this so I can guilt the recommender into reading something I suggest to him. Halfway through and it's not doing much for me.

This one scratched that sf/f itch I didn't know I was having. Blazed through it and I'll start the second one soon.

Marchpane I really need to just read this already. It's been on my list for months. 3y
MatthewBurris @Marchpane I was the same way. Do it! It flies 3y
