Oh those forgotten things.
Forgotten and remembered today.
While up at the lake for Thanksgiving I forgot the McCarthy trilogy I’d been reading in Alexandria, Minnesota with about 50 pages left. So that’s on hold. I also forgot my extremely warm winter vest in Cloquet, Minnesota.
In the mean time I’ve started rereading a classic rendition of Walden, [...]

Oh those forgotten things.
I’ve been reading Cormack McCarthy lately, and he’s a truly impressive writer. And he’s writing about Texas/New Mexico after the turn of the 20th century. It’s positively engrossing.
In addition to that, I picked up a video game called Red Dead Redemption, which is centered around the old West. So it’s wild, wild west here as [...]
It’d been a while since starting to read children’s books, so it was time to switch it up and read something out of the ordinary. Being from central Minnesota and having heard so much about Garrison Keillor due to working in St. Paul, it was time to see what all the hype was about.
First seeing the [...]
Another double book review. But first, an explanation of why.
Two weeks ago, Teresa and I took off to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a family vacation with her parents and siblings. The coast there is really something to see. There are large spans of sand, roughly 100 yards, from the shore to large [...]
I hadn’t read C.S. Lewis since being very young. We always had a few of the Chronicles of Narnia books in hardback floating around, but never the whole set. So I saw the set a few months ago and decided to spring back into my childhood for about 800 pages.
I’m not religious, though I was [...]
During business school, I took a lot of time to learn about finance and started scratching the surface of economics in general. I don’t know why it happens that way. As you get older, the importance of economics and money just seem to become more important. I never considered myself a “finance” type of person, [...]
After a month and a half of reading, I finished Player Piano by Kurt Vonnegut. It is a book about a future where everything is automated. It doesn’t seem a dystopia, but it’s no utopia either.
The world has been engineered to optimize all different tasks humans take on. In time, this automation has rendered many [...]
Twas a long time ago that I read a review of a book called A Confederacy of Dunces, it was about how Will Farrel was considering a movie remake of the book. At the time, I knew nothing of the book and so read a quick review. It was praised as one of the most [...]
I’ve been on a reading tear lately. Lots of travel.
A few weeks ago, I finished a book my mother purchased for me called “Cycling Home From Siberia” by Rob Lilwall. My fiance and her brother actually both read this before I did, as I was in the midst of some other business reading at the [...]
Recently while at a coworker of Teresa’s, I was given the book Pygmy and told to read it as it’s a great way to learn about Chuck Palahniuk, who I’ve been told is brilliant. I somewhat dislike being given books as I feel though it has to be read very quickly, I do not like [...]
