My goal is to be in the 30 books area by year end.  I typically only read for about 1hr a day during my morning commute on the train and a bit on the weekends.

Currently Reading

Unbroken: A World War II Story Of Survival, Resilience, And Redemption - Laura Hillenbrand

Completed

The World According to Garp - John Irving  6/10 (sorry folks, I just can't get into Irving)
Royal Assassin Book 2 of the Farseer Trilogy - Robin Hobb - 9/10 - Highly recommend this trilogy if you like fantasy.  I enjoyed this book a great deal.  Excellent middle book, continued the storyline and pace of the 1st book and ended with a stellar setup for book #3.

In the Queue

Lord of Chaos  Book 6 of The Wheel of Time series - Robert Jordan
Billions & Billions: Thoughts On Life And Death At The Brink Of The Millennium - Carl Sagan (older book, I know.  But I still want to read it)
Guns Germs And Steel: The Fates of Human Societies - Jared Diamond
Caliban's War Book 2 of the Expanse series - James S.A. Corey

When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.
