Just finished Becky Chamber's "RECORD of a SPACEBORN FEW"

This is the most intimate Space Opera I have ever read.

I just finished Richard Russo's Straight Man. If you are part of a department large enough to have internal politics, especially academic internal politics, you will find that novel hilarious.

I think I remember a cartoon of a really soft cushioned chair with the a couple of arms/hands sticking up/out like they were drowning.

I call those Black Hole chairs. Once you sit down you have a very hard time trying to get out of it.

I am reading, reluctantly, one of Ann Rand's novels. A friend lent it to me and I really want to have a fresh exposure to what she seemed to be advocating.

Now that I got my desktop running all of my preferred distributed computing projects simultaneously, I can start reading: Carl Sagan - The Demon Haunted World.

I'm into book 7 of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series now (it's 1 of the smaller books in the series at only 750pages).

Cheers.

"Catfishing on CatNet" by Naomi Kritzer.

If your "ex" is really out to get you, are you Paranoid?

YA with a mixture of moderately mature content, an AI coming out to one young adult and one VERY paranoid Mama.

Art in Minutes by Susie Hodge

Subtitle: "200 key concepts explained in an instant"

This is a high-level guide to "Art and Art History".

It sets out to give you an introduction to World Art and succeeds.
Now that your tastebuds are whetted you will probably need seconds.
