I like how you broaden your horizons, Wosbald! And it can't get any more horizon-broadening than the studying the universe itself (so far as I know).

'Twas very good. And it bears upon many of the subjects bandied around here, especially as of late.

Prolly not much of a surprise that I found the section by Unger (the philosopher) much easier-going than the one by Smolin (the theoretical physicist). I was able to muddle through Smolin's part, and it was certainly worth reading. But I surely didn't get as much from it as a science geek would've.

I'm enjoying short stories... I feel frenzied about keeping up with life right now, so I'm glad that art form exists.

"A Hint of an Explanation" by Graham Greene
"The Jilting of Granny Weatherall" by Katherine Anne Porter
"A Temple of the Holy Ghost" by Flannery O'Connor (re-read) and
"Rothschild's Fiddle" by Anton Chekov

Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte

I'd forgotten how much there is to love in this book; or let's just say I had forgotten this book, and stop at that.
I am like 50 pages in, and ecstatic.

Gilead, by Marilynne Robinson. Recommended by Linna Heartlistener. Stunningly beautiful language. Theologically geek-worthy. Mesmerizing. Few books "speak" from the main character so clearly; comparable to Orual in Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis. I am going to write an anti-recommendation.

Shantaram, by GD Roberts. I am in the home stretch... very difficult to put down.
