    I'm curently reading The River of Conciousness by Oliver Sacks.
    Sacks is best known for his books: The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat and Awakenings which was the basis for the 80's movie of the same name.
    This book was outlined by him a few weeks before his death and consists of his musings on the evolution of the regions of the human brain which govern our perception of reality including time and movement. He branches into case studies of people with perceptual issues resulting from brain trauma, such as than inability to perceive objects in three dimensions or objects in motion as anything more than still images suddenly appearing in space.
    It's pretty interesting for the most part

    New Kindle reading: Edwin Abbott Abbott's Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (1884), the satirical quasi-sci-fi story featuring the 2-D world Sheldon Cooper imagined himself as part of on an episode of The Big Bang Theory.

    Strangely, when the publisher did a comic-book version of this character-- Nedor's Green Ghost-- he was not only patterned after the Green Lama, he also got mixed up in a lot of time-travel stories.

    I finally finished the 10 book series Malazan: Book Of The Fallen.

    Welp, now there's nothing better to do than re-read Wheel Of Time, I guess.

    I love McBain's 87th Precinct stories (I know this is not one, but I have to assume the writing will be just as crisp).
