    I just started reading Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden. I've seen the movie 11 or 12 times so I figured it's time to read the book. So far it's really good, but basically the exact same as the movie.

    I feel silly for this eureka moment I just had. I can't stand reading books on my computer screen and I don't have any money to spend on them right now so I haven't really read any in a long time. Then it hit me. Libraries exist! I'm ecstatic. Going to one tomorrow.

    I recently finished Denis Lehane's "Shutter Island"! It's just perfect! I suggest for it! I am reading Stephen King's "The Talisman" now. It's not as interesting as the King's rest of.

    Recently read:
    - Thinking fast and slow by Daniel Kahneman (best book I have read in a while)
    - Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Genius by Sylvia Nasar (good, but ends strangly by quickly going over Friedman and Sen in the end).
    - Keynes by Skidelsky (the way a biography should be written)

    Currently reading:
    - Manias, Panics, and Crashes: A History of Financial Crises by Kindleberger and Aliber (very hard to read at times, needs some serious editing and rewriting)

    Up next:
    -Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness by Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein
    -Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World by Liaquat Ahamed
    -Paris 1919: Six Months That Changed the World by Margaret MacMillan

    Dolores Claiborne - Stephen King

    Different style of storytelling since it is a first-person narrative without chapters and stuff.

    I'm reading The Flame Alphabet by Ben Marcus. Not liking it much so far. The main character is a rather unlikeable, bumbling guy. But I'm plodding forward, because I'm stubborn and because it's the book club read this month.

    Finished The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides. I was a bit disappointed as his other two were amazing. But it was stilll good enough.

    I'm now reading Norwegian Wood by Haruki Marakumi and really like it so far.
