Currently about to finish up the second of Mark Hodder's Burton & Swinborne series, then on to the third tomorrow.

And need to reread my own work to finish off another story worth of writing.

Finished the Revanche Cycle by Craig Schaeffer just yesterday. Now on a magazine of nonfiction articles about ancient Greece and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami.

I'm procrastinating on reading in depth on ventilation by reading A Song of Fire & Ice by George RIP-Will-Never-Finish Martin. It's really nice to pick up on some of the subtleties he's plugged in the first book such as Littlefinger's stares at Sansa too.
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

Via audiobook, I'm partway through the 3rd book of the Broken Empire trilogy by Mark Lawrence. In hardcopy, I'm finishing my reread of The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin, in preparation for the last book of the Broken Earth trilogy which came out last month.

I'm currently reading The Complete Sherlock Holmes (every official Sherlock Holmes story/book in one book) and Red Dragon.  Red Dragon should be finished tomorrow so I'll pick up Silence of the Lambs next.

I always have two books going, a work book that fits in my laptop bag and a home book that's either too big or too risque for work.

Currently on Against The Gods, which is the history of the mathematical discovery of probability and risk. It's dense, but a very informative read. Knowing a fair bit of statistics obviously helps, too.
