Currently, I am working on Programming JavaSript Applications and consider this topic very interesting. I read an article https://habr.com/en/post/440992/ that encouraged me to go deep into the subject and read technical literature. Having plunging more and more in programming I even reflected over changing my career (I have a sociology degree) or at least make it my new hobby. Apart from it, I enjoy reading classic novels by Somerset Maugham, Jack London, etc. for aesthetical purposes. I also think that science fiction is fascinating and often contain some real messages/predictions of what awaits us in the future.

Just finished The French Photographer by Natasha Lester. Very enjoyable - tells a fictional tale of a woman photographer during World War II and the problems they encountered in being taken seriously. They weren't allowed to go to the front, needed permission to go to a war zone and had to wait for the male journalists to submit their copy at the end of the day before they could submit theirs. Based on true journalists from the time.

I recently re-read 'Vida', Marge Piercy's novel about 1960s radicals. A much neglected writer these days.

I'm reading a very technical book. I just want to learn about this industry.

I purchased it after a quick chat with the writer. He recommended The Appraisal of Heavy Equipment. The writer is John Craughan someone with decades of experience in heavy machinery especially road and constructions. Apart from being knowledgeable he is very approachable. I might write an blog post about it on our academic writing blog and provide some insight about this. This book provides very good information for any absolute beginner who wants to get some industry exposure.

I just finished reading "The Medusa Chronicles" by Stephen Baxter and Alastair Reynolds. It is a sequel or sorts to Arthur C. Clarke's novella, "A Meeting with Medusa."

I am currently looking for something new to read; doesn't have to be science fiction or even fiction, just interesting (no romance novels, please). Any sugsestions?

I always keep a book in the truck, so I can read if I get stuck somewhere unexpectedly. Lately I've been enjoying this one. Botkin put out several of these books...Southern folklore, New England, Mississippi River, Railroad, Civil War. Bits and pieces from various old publications. Fascinating reading.

Some days I have a desire to read big poems, but sometimes want to read little essay-style writing works. It all depends on the mood. I wonder where all these writers get their improvisation abilities for all these books. By the way, recently when I needed to compose an essay for my college needs, I didn't waste a second of my time and simply ordered that paper work from essay writer, who has PhD degree and works in writing industry for years, and his years of experience says for himself.

Did you see the movie, Cattleman? I suspect you wouldn't before reading the book. But fwiiw, I thought the film was very good and not fully appreciated by critics and the public.

I just read one published this month called "The Gods of the Upper Air." It's about the anthropologist Franz Boas and four of his female students at Columbia, one of whom was Margaret Mead. Boas determined through research that race is a myth. The book is much more engrossing than my description makes it sound.
