Just finished this:

It was kinda meh. Very short. Definitely think the authors could have told a much more engaging story.

Just started this, today.

An artlessly told allegory of pantheistic "truths" written for the gullible.

Avoid it.

Augustin's City of God is ongoing as I'm reading it with my Communio group, along with Aquinas Summa Theologica

Three years ago I came out of a deep depression. Spurgeon's Sorrows was very helpful.

I started "The Big Sleep" by Raymond Chandler (audio)

I had to watch the movie (1946/Bogart and Bacall) about five times before I felt like I really knew what was going on. I may have to try the book some time.
There is a lot left out of the story left out in the movie that is in the book. The story in the book does a lot better connecting the 'dots'.
I finally read the book. Definitely connected some dots that were glossed over in the movie.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Not reading any books currently; my next book may be a non-fiction book on economics.

after all. There is some quotable material, but in the end, it comes down to: open borders wrecks the rule of law, is a darn good way of perpetuating an underclass, and will ultimately be dealt with by trading one last amnesty for real border security. A good short read, but not a lot to it.

At last count, I had read 31 books this year.
1 was the Purpose Driven Life.
1 was the Paradigm.
2 were about the Holy Spirit.
2 were about real cases of demonic possession.
2 were about visions of the afterlife.
2 were republished books about giants and ancient heroe
2 were about ancient Judaism.
3 were fiction, including Tom Sawyer.
8 were about Vatican and New World Order conspiracies.
8 were miscellaneous.
Probably won't read anymore books this year.
