Speaking of drummers, I quite enjoyed John Densmore's book Riders on the Storm.

Anyway, I'm re-reading the last of the "continued" Millennium books, which is the one that started me re-reading the whole series.

Anything that will hold my increasingly limited attention span for more than a few nights. My proclivity changes from day to day - fiction one day, history the next, something else the following........

Started The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist a few days ago and read it for two nights, but it was getting me down so I've shelved it for a while. Last night read a book on maps; great illustration but uninspired writing to be honest. Tonight, who knows........

Saw this while reading the online Brittanica Encylopeidia:

Quote:
The Doors famously asserted that no one remembers your name when you’re strange, a fact to which this odd editor can personally attest. Hopefully, though, you’ll remember the names of some of these aberrations of the avian world. The beautiful feathered freaks on this list deserve their day in the sun.

Shoebill


Other than that, I found a few graphic novels while clearing out a cupboard.
The Infinity Gauntlet being the best because I mostly just look at the pictures
and the artist has drawn some of the characters wearing really neat jackets,
and I'd like to find me one just like it for winter.

The Infinity Gauntlet is pretty, but it never ends. There are many sequels.

Is that the one that came out around 2014 and was released in the US as just "Capital?" Or was it the follow-up published a few years later?

I got a few chapters into Capital and found it interesting, but... Almost text-book dry. In the end, I simply forgot to keep reading it.

There are just some books where I am prepared to content myself with the Wikipedia summary - Picketty's works are amongst them. I'm sure they are very good.....but if the central points can be summed up in a few paragraphs without all of the dry background graphs and whatnot, then I'm all in for taking the easy route! Wink

The main point I took from his work when I was reading it is that the only reliable way to compare buying power over time is by measuring labor. He suggests haircuts and lawyers, as the amount of labor required for each task has remained relatively constant for over two thousand years Very Happy

It's the follow-up, published in 2019.
