I just started the first volume of Forbidden Science by Jacques Vallee and am digging it so far. Very readable. I'm also reading Summerland by Hannu Rajaniemi. It's... intriguing, and I think I will keep going with it. I have it out of the library. I also have out 2010 by Arthur Clarke which I read not long after it first came out, and decided to reread. I listen to audiobooks when I am alone in the car; I'm currently making my way through Consider Phlebas by Iain Banks. I read that one back when it first came out in the U.S. Rereading it now it is striking to me how absolutely little I retained from that original read (well, it's been 26 or 27 years). I still love Banks though so it's fun to revisit. I have loved books and reading since I was a little kid. I have a little library of favorite books but in 2012 when I started spending weeks at a time in L.A. for my job (I live in the Midwest), I bought a Kindle, and quickly converted to preferring to read prose or non-fiction on that device. One of the few things I am passionate about is cartooning, and most of my print books are collections of old comic strip art. I am into pre World War II comic strips primarily, and Peanuts. For those I like having an actual printed page to study, not something electronic.
