Good grief! It’s summer again. And 2018. The 50-90 time of year seems to roll around quicker than ever.
What have you guys been reading over the past several months? Anything special you’d recommend, or that might inspire you to write a lyric or a song?
I’ve not done much reading (focusing more on art stuff lately), but I’m still being enthralled by ‘Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind’ (by Yuval Noah Harari). It’s fascinating and thought-provoking. Am eager to get my hands on the follow-up book, ‘Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow’.
At the train station recently I bought ‘The Idiot Brain: A Neuroscientist Explains What Your Head is Really Up To’ by Dean Burnett. Haven’t had time to read it yet, but a quick browse indicates it’s going to be amusing, informative, and probably very surprising.
Any good crime thrillers you’d recommend? Last month I binge-read Sally Hawkins' ‘Into the Water’. Good stuff. It was as riveting as her ‘Girl On A Train’.
