    Still reading a lot of technical documentation for work that goes into my personal reading time.

    Slow reading my way through "Living Terrors: What America Needs to Know to Survive the Coming Bioterrorist Catastrophe"

    Oh man, interesting pick. How are you liking it so far?

    Overall, it's good. I'm about 1/3 of the way through it. Informative, yet easy to understand. Might be somewhat grim for people to read. But, due to previous work, it's an interest of mine.

    It's also a little dated, in that it was published 2007. But, still relevant. I do have his other book "Deadliest Enemy: Our War Against Killer Germs" which came out in 2017. Though, haven't read it yet. We'll see if I read it immediately following, or take a break and read something a little lighter in between.

    Would you rather read as an escape from the drama of our present situation? Or do you like analyzing everything and searching for what all this might mean for humanity? How will our civilizations be altered? Well, this novel will hèlp you to do a bit of both! It's thought provoking, but hilarious. I'm doing a quick reread!

    Catch 22 by Joseph Heller... one of my favorites

    That is, hand down, the best book to read right now. Especially for people being forced to work out in the public..I think it was controversial, at the time, how he could possibly value his own life over the cause or his allegience to his country or whatever. I don't want to give out any spoilers. :smiley: (by the way, I love your hair!!!!)

    Pompeii, the life of a Roman Town, by Mary Beard. About halfway through and loving it, very engaging and accessible, and I love that it focuses on the everyday life of regular people.

    Relics, by Tim Lebbon. Barely started it so no opinion to give.

    Currently reading Been Shapiros How To Destroy America In Three Easy Steps.

    I listen to his podcast a lot recently and decided to give it a shot. Now to far into it ( I have a 5 year old son, that needs my attention. 😜) But so o far I'm enjoying it.

    Martin Caidin's 1968 The God Machine.

    I don't recommend it. It isn't terrible...It is sci-fi ish--focused on the creation of a massive AI that (probably, hasn't happened yet) will decide humanity must die. Or at least the chauvanists who created it... I think Caidin was aiming for high brow technological thriller?

    On par for 60's sci fi. I think The Coming of the Quantum Cat (which I read because of the title) was more entertaining but also more ridiculous.
