    Bedside book pile: hey guys, what are you reading?

    I am a serial book starter and tend to have more than one going at a time. I studied literature in college and had to read 3-5 books a week so I think it's now a habit to have more than one going at a time.

    My current bedside book pile:

    Superintelligence - Paths, Dangers, Strategies by Nick Bostrom: I LOVE this book. It's tremendously fascinating and feeds my brain in a way most real life interactions cannot. Still, I can't read it if I'm the least bit sleepy or distracted so it's taking me a while to get through it. Really have to be at the peak of comprehensive capabilities with this one.

    American Hardcore by Steven Blush: A book about the old school punk scene. I love reading interviews/artilcles. I'm a huge Klosterman fan as well.

    Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons: This book lives by my bedside. It's NEVER on the bookshelf. It is my favorite graphic novel, if not piece of writing EVER. I cannot wrap my head around the layers and characters sometimes. It's so rich. Sometimes I just want to read specific parts of it so it's always handy.

    Seven Brief Lessons on Physics by Carlo Rovelli: I want to understand physics. I really do. Astronomy fascinates me but science has always been my Achilles heel. As a Christmas gift, I booked a tour at the Jet Propulsion Lab with a friend of mine (the tour is free so I'm also taking her out to lunch.) It has motivated me to educate myself on something that I struggle with but love.

    I am curious about what everyone is reading and why as well as your opinion of it. If you have any recommendations, I would love to hear about those as well. Please enable my reclusive lifestyle.

    Reading right now:

    Candide by Voltaire - Satire in its finest form. Hilarious.

    The Autobiography of Malcolm X - It's always cool to see the perspective in those years of a controversial civil rights leader.

    Human, All Too Human by Nietzsche - What a damn weirdo. That is all.


    My only recommendation:

    The Little Prince by Saint-Exupery - you'd have to read it once every year. One of those rare books that grow old with you.

    How To Teach Quantum Physics To Your Dog by Chad Orzel - this might be a book you're interested in.

    I always read multiple books at a time as well!

    I've read more (intensely) than usual lately, and finished Biocentrism by Robert Lanza, The Anatomy of Being by Shinji Moon, The Shadow of the Wind + The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. I recommend ALL of them - Biocentrism especially.

    The books I'm currently reading are a biography on London, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and The Thread by Victoria Hislop.

    I would also LOVE recommendations. For reference (and to recommend), my favorite books are The Botticelli Secret by Marina Fiorato, The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova and Villette by Charlotte Brontë.

    I don't read as much as I used to in school to ignore my less than useful teachers.
    That being said my favorite books of all time are the Night Angel Trilogy. Amazing characters and it is not dumbed down and simplified for the everyday reader. Awesome fantasy read.

    I listen to multiple Audiobooks, depending on my location (one is for the gym, another for driving, another before bed, etc...). The ones I'm currently working on are:

    Security Analysis
    by Benjamin Graham and David Dodd
    The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo
    The Neuropsychology of Self-Discipline by Sybervision
    Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell


    The only physical book I am reading is a CPA Exam Prep book by Becker.

    I usually don't keep my book bile next to my bed as that would be unsanitary.
