I’ve gotten really bad at blogging through all my reading, mostly because it drives me crazy when all I have on this blog is post after post of ‘here’s what I read’.
Now that I have a few other posts under my belt, here’s a quick list of my more recent reading:
Trippy time travel / multiverse novel. Not bad.
Scalia Dissents: Writings of the Supreme Court’s Wittiest, Most Outspoken Justice, edited by Kevin Ring
Scalia’s opinions and wit: fantastic reading. The editor’s heavy-handed, fawning commentary: not so much. Call it a mixed bag.
A classic, and quite timely.
Just in case you’d ever wondered if Scientology was really that messed up. Answer: yes.
An American classic. Though I can’t read the book now without seeing Javier Bardem’s face as Anton Chigurh.
As dime-a-dozen action novels go, not bad.
A meditation on living a truly embodied faith. Beautiful stuff.
Reading Revelation Responsibly: Uncivil Worship and Witness: Following the Lamb into the New Creation by Michael J. Gorman
A friend recommended this one. Premise: Adolf Hitler wakes up in the present day and grapples with modern life and social media. Hitler: YouTube star? Not as crazy as it sounds.
The Ottoman Endgame: War, Revolution, and the Making of the Modern Middle East, 1908 – 1923 by Sean McMeekin
Filling in a gap in the history I’m familiar with. Very readable account of the end of the Ottoman Empire.
Oh goodness me I love what McCarthy does with words.
