📚 We have our next online book club title chosen and it is:
Property-Based Testing with PropEr, Erlang, and Elixir
I just started reading A Street Cat Named Bob: How one man and his cat found hope on the streets by James Bowen.📚
📚 Finished A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Mostly an incredible conclusion to the story. Suffered from inconsistent portrayal of Egwene and Gawyn that went contrary to their character arcs. Rand parts also a little hokey with Mormon stuff.
I liked Malcolm Gladwell’s 📚 Talking to Strangers, but I liked this podcast of him talking about the topic even better. He was more cutting, witty, etc. Great dynamic between Ezra and Malcolm on the show.
rest in peace, Christopher Tolkien. I’m sure I’ve read more of J.R.R.’s writing, thanks to Christopher’s beyond-painstaking editing & publishing, than the original trilogy (plus) combined.

New plan. Until my poetry reading gets back up to speed, I’ve decided to track any book I finish each week, regardless of genre, starting now.
While sorting out my author follows on Goodreads by browsing back through the 📚 I’ve read over the last few years, I discovered that Nicole Kornher-Stace, author of the terrific Archivist Wasp, has a new 📖 coming…but, alas, not until next year.
The latest Brain Pickings prompted me to reread T.H. White’s The Once and Future King. 📚
“What is the use of trying?”
“It is a thing which people do.”
“People are dupes, then.”
… “People are dupes, and wicked too. That is what makes it interesting to get them better.”
I started reading David Byrne’s “How Music Works” over the weekend. and he describes making the “Once in a Lifetime” video– which is… quite a thing if you’ve never seen it . 📚🎵
