Just finished reading the Hunger Games trilogy. My wife is always trying to get me to read more fiction. She says I read way too much business and non-fiction, and since she loved these books so much I thought I’d give them a try. Coincidentally, @drewhawkins thinks that reading fiction is good for your career. So there.
Regarding the Hunger Games, loved the fist one, second one was also pretty good though not as good as the first (a little more love story, less badassedness), and the third was good but slower than the first two. Pretty good ending.
I’m trying to read more Lincoln, so I’m now on to Abraham Lincoln: A Presidential Life. It’s a really good, short bio on Lincoln. I’m cruising through it and if you want to get to know Honest Abe quickly, this is a great way.
I read Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Killing Lincoln by Bill O’Reilly last year. Funny, my democratic friends would probably think the vampire hunter book was more accurate since O’Reilly was involved with Killing Lincoln. Zing.
Anyways, not that you care about the very few books I read each year, but since I like finding out what others are reading I like to share that myself. As far as my new slight obsession with learning about Lincoln goes, I’m only just getting started. He’s fascinating and so critical to our history that I’m trying to make a point to learn as much as I can about him.
Plus he could kick the sh%t out of some vampires.
