Current Reading Stack (+ notes)
Making slow progress on Gormenghast, mostly just because I'm busy during the day, and my bedside reading light isn't very helpful.
Picked up Ready Player One after my wife suggested it, hoping it's a good romp rather than an annoying nostalgia fest 😉
The pandemic made me pick up Baudrillard's Essays on Extreme Phenomena again. While I was "shunted" by it before, I'm not sure I took it all in. A lot has happened in the world since then, and I'm blowing my mind all over again so far.
Finished off the book about Yang Wan-Li, Chinese civil servant and famous poet. I live the way public officials were expected to have a solid training in the core arts.
Alan Watts picked up again recently for "comfort reading".
Foraging book because start of the month.
Generally a bit man-heavy, but it comes and goes. Just finished A Phoenix First Must Burn on the kindle though.
