Current reading

In progress, and of note:

• Albert-László Barabási, 2002, Linked: How Everything Is Connected to Everything Else and What It Means for Business, Science, and Everyday Life (thank you for the suggestion, JFC). Excellent, although I admit I’m only 100 pages into it. As Barabási says, “This book has a simple aim: to get you to think networks.”

• Boris Akunin, modern Russian mystery writer (yes, it’s a pen name), whose fourth English translated novel has just appeared (but I have only the first three, courtesy of the county library). I’ve just started on The Winter Queen, and, once I get beyond it’s inherent Russian-ness (the ponderous part), fascination kicks in!

’Nuff about me; whatchu reading?
